As a Yorkshirewoman I hate to jump to Lancashire's defence, but Lancaster is the county town of Lancashire - definitely not Cumbrian.

I am really upset, as a Lancastrian, that your are reporting Lancaster as being in Cumbria. It’s only the capital of Lancashire like York is for Yorkshire

I love this article ( and bought an album!).

It would be great to see these bands live in the city, but I couldn’t see any links to gigs except Mr Ben and the Bens- in Halifax.. I will follow…

OK. Thanks Dan. I read a lot of your articles and was very surprised by this, but thanks for putting it right 😀

It's exciting to hear of so much energy and creativity - although it makes me feel even older than usual. I'll now be able to drop some Sheffield music scene names with the best of 'em. Oh, and Lancaster didn't seem very sleepy to me when I was a student at Lancaster University in the early 1970s. Thanks to our amazing Social Secretary, Barry Lucas, Lancaster University was, from 1970-1985, one of the great centres for live rock music. There's a book about it: 'When Rock Went to College'.
