Mine will sound pretty lame then!

1 Frank
2. Jim L&TSS
3. Bruce
4. Ben Marwood
5. The Gaslight Anthem

Honourable mentions to Jenny Owen Youngs, Sophie Madeleine, Regina Spektor and Gaz Brookfield. Still others I will remember later!

Still... realise now I may need to broaden my music taste.

In no order:
Frank
Blur
Nirvana
Neil Young
Beatles

On another day I might well replace some of those with Iron Maiden, New Order, Morrissey, Guns N' Roses or Black Sabbath though.
