British singers & bands......?

How do the British feel about British singers and bands?

Particularly the following:

Jamie Lidell

George Michael

Lisa Stansfield

Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister)

Boy George (Culture Club)

Everything but the girl (Tracey Thorn & Ben Watt)

I live in the United States, and I love these singers and groups.

Update:

I forgot to mention:

Damon Gough (Badly Drawn Boy)

    Jamie Lidell - dont know him

    George Michael - he can write a decent pop tune (wham)

    Lisa Stansfield - not a fan

    Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister) - werent they a one hit wonder with "break out" ?

    Boy George (Culture Club) - seems to be more (in)famous for his real life than his music

    Everything but the girl (Tracey Thorn & Ben Watt) - yeah, theyre ok...

    I'm not from UK (I'm from Bulgaria) but I like most of them, specially George Michael, Lisa Stansfield and Boy George! I like Lily Allen and Lemar for example, but I LOVE The Beatles!
