    I thought that they basically played English music.
    in touristic places yes. Spain, Italy and France are the 3 European countries that have the least English-speaking music. Doesn't mean there isn't any, just not so much.

    It will be a bit of a culture shock but maybe thats a good thing, part of te joy of going away I suppose. Even in Edinburgh they played a lot of britpop/madchester stuff which surprised me.

    Oh well I take my entire Smiths and JD collection with me, at least I can listen to that during the day.

    My idea of english music is quite extreme though, stuff like Queen to me is very commercial. Over here a lot of the rarer stuff is more common if that makes sense.

    I suppose I will have to settle to their version of house or the YMCA.

    you won't find anything intrinsically English like the Cure or Joy Division. I thought the person was talking about just music from English-speaking countries. But in those kinds of places, there are so many British tourists, that someone might have set up a club with typical British music.

    I like Morrissey. Especially since he learnt how to sing.

    Yeah this what I don't get, I mean the British indie scence is not just for scruffy geeks it seems pretty much mains tream. As for as UK main stream clubbing is concerned you have idnie, rnb, and house/trance.

    The the top is often full of indie at the moment, Morrisey, Keane, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers etc shows there is demand.

    Maybe when I am rich (haha) I could open up a spanish indie club, 50 cents for a bottle of fosters, 1 euro in. (oh and NUS only )

    The spannish may hate me for it though.

    Well there used to be a bar called Plastic People in Lyon, France, where I used to go to Uni. Named after the famous place in London (I think). Probably would be your scene. They used to have special "Blur" nights or "Pixies" nights. Great place to meet cute foreign students from Sweden. You could open a bar like that.

    The trouble is, a lot of the indie scene in the UK isn't "exportable". Britpop totally killed the British music market because it was too British. In the 80s, the Brits had a 30% share of the US market! That's totally incredible! These days, we've probably got 2 or 3 if we're lucky and it's all thanks to Coldplay, Dido or Franz Ferdinand.

    The only British acts that are having decent sales in Spain are the cheesy pop ones...

    I have though of somthing quite ironic. New Order's Blue Monday was a very cultish dance record played in a lot of Ibiza clubs in 1982/1983 and became so popular that when clubbers returned to back to the UK they had to release as a single. It became the biggest selling 12" single of all time, selling 3 million copies world wide and 1 million in the UK.

    But then this was 21 years ago and I am not going to Ibiza

    Are you sure Ibiza was already associated with house music back in 1982? Pacha was still associated with the hippy movement. The British clubs like Gatecrasher and Manumission weren't around yet...
    I guess that didn't stop clubs from playing Blue Monday. It's a great tune, so ahead of its time. It could have come out a few years ago and wouldn't have been out of place.
