Bands representing 4 UK regions

#1
Heard on R2 this morning that there's going to be a concert to kick off the Olympic celebrations. Headlining are four bands representing the UK regions:

Wales: Stereophonics
Scotland: Paulo Nuttini
NI: Snow Patrol
England:........ Duran Duran :???:

Did they run out of money before they managed to book the group for England? Surely they could have got someone a little more up to date?! Adele too busy?

Who would you have represent the 4 regions?

The north-east is a "region." The south west is a "region." Wales is a "region." England is a country and Scotland wants to be one. Or not. Who knows?

In any event, why does every fucking event in Britain have to have a bloody pop concert associated with it? It's the Olympics, not a music festival.

Region, shmegion.

No doubt The Beautiful South'll want to do Hull.

There's going to be a hell of a scrum to represent the People's Republic of Liverpool.

I think that you'll find that Wales is a country. It has it's own language, assembly, national anthem and everything.

They announced the lineup for the show on the news on Planet Rock radio this morning. The DJ paused for a moment and said "I think I'll give that one a miss..."

Made me laugh.
