Great bands from the Black Country/Birmingham/West Midlands area

Because for a while now I've been thinking about some of the excellent bands that have come from my home region, or who have included significant members from the Black Country/Birmingham/West Midlands region, I've finally decided to start making myself a list. I've a preference for rock/metal music, but I'll probably include those bands who played in other styles too. (If my info is wrong, let me know so I can correct it:-) )

Black Sabbath
Ozzy Osbourne (yeah, I know he was part of Sabbath, but he had/has a very succesful solo carreer too)
Judas Priest
Led Zeppelin (Both John Bonham and Robert Plant are originally from the region)
Robert Plant
Electric Light Orchestra
Black Country Communion (Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham are originally from the region)
Marshall Law
Diamond Head
Dark Star
Spencer Davis Group
Steve Winwood
Toyah Willcox
The Move
Dexy's Midnight Runners
Moody Blues
Apache Indian

Barnabas - Little Foxes

Barnabas were a Christian heavy rock outfit from the 80s.  I owned a copy of their album Little Foxes which is apparently now out of print. Thankfully numerous fans seem to be discovering (or posting) links to digital versions of many of the albums from those times.  Hence, here are two links for blogposts which give info on Barnabas and download links for the album Little Foxes : and

As the establishment continues to seek ways of making sharing even obsolete and deleted music illegal, may as well make the most of the links before they get deleted.

It does make you wonder who is heading up these laws against sharing on the internet.  I don't think it's the groups and artists, as generally the ones I've spoken to are quite happy to have their music available again.
