We've had lots of letters

An email pings into our inbox with this unlikely claim

Let's just leave aside the question of how something can be a resurgence if it's new, and ask... Cornwall?

The "popular music" section of Wikipedia's List of Cornish musicians stretches to include Tori Amos's holiday home in Bude, a claim for the lead singer of Paper Lace (albeit with citation needed) and, splendidly, Kevin Downing, "drummer for 1990s indie band The Family Cat".

Now, there's a load of interesting things going on in Cornwall - Hollie Rogers and Rose Kimberley, for example - but there's a bit of work to be done before it becomes "the new home of rock n roll".
