      Overrated: the stone roses, without shadow of a doubt. Seen ian brown live and he was quite a character but all that baggy arsed sh*t, it's a no from me

      Bang on. I came to that view when I watched a truly dull and uninspiring documentary of them that was directed by Shane Meadows. 'There is nothing to this lot' I thought. Their comeback only revealed to me what a myth they were. Endless shows of playing the same album over and over again. Don't get me wrong, their debut has some great moments (like the first half of I Am The Resurrection only for it to be ruined by a non sensical and self indulgent second half) but that album in itself is way overrated with enough throwaway on it to be considered just so. This is the One - what a load of sh*t that song is and not just because the Mancs walk out to it.

      I quite like the Stone Roses, but the status they have in the UK really feels way over the top. They were good, not legendary or anything. I'm amazed they can sell out Wembley these days.

      I also like Kasabian though I can understand why some people won't. They're so much fun live, though. I'd definitely watch them again.

      I think this guy is underrated:

      I hadn't listened to Ben Kweller in years until a friend mentioned him days ago and I got back to listen to it. His album Sha Sha is fantastic. I can leave it on repeat while I work and not get tired of it.

      They were more prominent in the early 00s but I always thought Idlewild were a superb band. American English is a wonderful song especially - great melody. Roddy Woomble has turned in a great solo career as well, including some fine Scottish folk albums.
