Re: You have to “make it” outside your own country first
Out of interest what kind of music do you currently enjoy listening to drums_n_surf? I'm sure there are some UK bands that would interest you. The UK (to the outside world) probably seems to copy the US, when infact there is a ton of other stuff going on all the time. If anything it's the other way round at the moment, in many sub-genres.
