I have to say like, I despise all of the big Geordie bands. All of them just sound like horrible, tacky, cringey shite.

Semantics really. Knopfler was the main songwriter in Dire Straits. I enjoyed The Animals to an extent. I still think the best popular band to come out of Newcastle (and Sunderland) is Maximo Park.

Aye. Well, I love a few songs by The Police. The others I mentioned have a 'sound' about them, that sounds wrong to me. It's something The Police, The Animals, and the newer Newcastle bands don't have either.

Trains, right? We all love trains don't we? Well, not the British ticket prices but you cannit beat a good train; the world depends on them.

 

Wouldn't have happened without this boy from the banks of the Tyne.

Only good thing to come from Sunderland is the Futureheads, FACT.

 

I've sat here for a good few minutes to try and think of another example...

 

 

Field Music!

I guess he means that the shops/businesses etc located on Grey St are not befitting of its immense architectural splendour. It doesnt have much to attract people; its always quite a quiet street with few people about.

 

Yeah, fair enough.  I can see that, but I think that's one of the things that it's got going for it.  It's not at all gimmicky or whatever.  It's not the street with all of the pubs on it, or all of the restaurants, or whatever.

I think Blakes and Bar Luga are enough on that street to have a nice balance between being able to appreciate it comfortably without it being spoiled with too many bars and restaurants.
