Northern Uproar are an English rock band from Stockport. With a career spanning only two years from formation to original dissolution, the group initially drew some hype and praise from the British music press but were soon forgotten. They also became the subject of a degree of ridicule, for their sometimes loutish appearance and behaviour. They were described as a cross between Oasis, The Clash and the Manic Street Preachers. Northern Uproar reformed in 2006 and released a new album in 2007.
