"Bands" suggests a self-contained unit with players of instruments, with or without vocalists. It might be useful to distinguish between bands and vocal groups. {Edit: I see Ranking Glasses has taken up my suggestion and changed the name of the thread accordingly.]

Pretty definitive list there again RG! Only glaring omission that immediately springs to mind for me is the Viceroys. Glad you found a place for Morgan Heritage, I’m a huge fan of theirs.

Soul Syndicate were more of a backing band.
Not fond of the lead singer's voice in Israel Vibration.
I would include the Symbols maybe at the expense of the Mighty Diamonds
Yes, the Viceroys - fan-bloody-tastic but who would have to go?
I couldn't think of many modern groups?

Third World are a pop band aren't they?
I don't get Misty in Roots.
20 is a finite number so if there are glaring omissions who would you take out to stay at 20?
