i'll be going to brunel and im interested in this too. Although i live in the local (5 miles) i have not really heard of anything much happening in brunel along these lines... i tend to track into london alot- and will probably continue to do so once im at brunel- tho it would be interesting to find out more about this...

I know quite a few people who are at Brunel (and who are going there) and according to them the alternative rock scene is pretty non-existent I'm afraid. Apparently the majority of students are into d n b, rap, hip-hop etc. However, I don't know how true this really is. You're not going to be that far from that sort of scene though, you'll just have to travel into London.

That sucks big time!
However its interesting to note that there are people on the internet who are going to brunel and are into alternative music (not just this forum), maybe we can all meet up and flock to central London.
I've heard that uxbridge is 30 mins away from central london, is this true?

The alternative scene is okay, they have a big annual battle of the bands competition each year, i went and watched my friends band (who has just finished her first year at Brunel) play, and they eventually won. But it had a really good turnout etc.

Good to know some of the alt.rock exists for it's my favourite music type. My g/f (also going brunel) read that it is very much a hip/hop, r&b or dance based Uni, like quite a lot of places these days - but hopefully there'll be something interesting to listen to!
