"exaggerated generalisation" !!!!!??????

So what's so misfortunate about Weston Super Mare,
above and beyond any other Tory dominated provincial shithole in the United Kingdom....

It might be the arse end of the west country, but despite or because of all the social problems
it's a very actively musical town...

Admittedly, I don't like most of the x factor style of music the current generation make there..
but that's beside the point...

Back in my day it was well prominent on the punk and heavy metal map..

And an obscure folk reissue CD lable "Wooden Hill Recordings" apparently used to be based in the town centre..
