10 for 2011: What say the other media?

By on Wednesday, 15th December 2010 at 11:00 am

Last Friday we announced that you, the faithful readers of TGTF, voted Nashville-based rockers Mona the #1 band to watch in 2011. We’d now like to do some comparing of our list with those of two of the biggest music muscles in Britain, MTV and the BBC.

So our (TGTF) 10 for 2011 list looks like this. Remember, this was voted for by you and not by industry insiders. To be honest, I was (pleasantly) surprised to see an American band top a UK music blog readers’ poll.
