I question it too, at times, as well as with some others, but then we're defining 'local' as a term. Boston is such a melting pot for talent that true origins can get blurry.
Mission Of Burma
FWIW, I glanced at Wiki, and under musical groups from Boston, Pixies are listed...but Morphine is listed as from Cambridge.
Question to the forum: Which bands - other than strictly local acts - do you find are more popular - or more identified - in one city than in another?? Does every city/metro area have its own special slate of groups they hold dear...??
The Replacements in Minneapolis, for example...or ZZ Top in Texas, maybe...?
One could build a major league of popular music and match cities and states against each other...a nationwide battle of the bands, if you will.(still spewing...)
And why don't we have a nationally realized battle of the bands? They used to be all over the place in lots of clubs. If we can have weak 'competitions' of singers, dancers, and assorted other amateurs (chefs, designers) on TV, than why not rock bands...? (Sorry...rant over...) :P
