I'm not sure how well known they are (if at all) outside the UK, but I went to see Man Must Die last night. They're probably the best band from around here I've heard in quite a while (they're from Glasgow originally, I believe).
For those who haven't heard them:

One of my favourite songs, and the whole album is great overall . I've not heard their earlier stuff, apart from a few songs they played last night which sounded pretty good. They were very tight live, although the triggers on the kick drum were mis-triggering all over the place in the first song, it got better as it went on.
Also picked up a t-shirt for only a fiver, which was too good a deal to pass up
Awesome band, especcially live! Seen them 2-3 years ago here i Vienna.
And if you click on my profile you will notice me in my sexy-as-hell Man Must Die shirt too.
