The growth in manufactured music has killed off the local music scene according to a Horsham drummer. Glyn Owen, a 20 year old student from Irwin Drive who plays with Ever. ‘The new music from people like Rick Astley has been successful so it can be admired, but it is all the same’. ‘Of the bands around here Spiralhead are quite a decent band to watch. They are the first new thing around here instead of the same old indie stuff’.

Ultimately the onslaught of ‘the new music’ led Glyn to seek solace in easy listening and joining The Mike Flowers Pops.
