Brit Pop from the nighties was my true proper introduction to Pop music, bands like Oasis and Blur filled my days.

what your favourite?

I forget was Spirea X part of that?  I really liked 'Sunset Dawn'.    I Tried to like RIDE.  just kind of sound a like and long after awhile...  I also forget if the High Llamas count.  Like everyone else in America, I bought that one Oasis album, and although I never bought Blur, I think that guy was a Gorilla, right?  they had a few good songs, like 'Clint Eastwood' with my Bay Area homie Del The FH.

trowing oscure references aren't we. I like Ride. I have lots of stuff by Damon Albern. He's too prolific to catch up with. he even has a band in Africa. I too mostly know Blur and Gorillaz. I like Suede, Seahorses, The bluetones, Gomez, boy it was 20 years ago... elastica.. now those chicks had atitude. but i think the band that started it all other than the La's was teenage fanclube. the revival i mean. Its funny how everything seems to gone back to the 80's now. the synth pop. I listemn to a lot of the classics. tell you the truth i love the newer stuff coming out but it just gets me a bit sleepy

who does not like supergrass and one pence none richer

I used to edit videos from the telly on VHS..... now its youtube!

Yes, Teenage Fan Club!  good memory.  Like them.  What about Everclear, Sailor, they could've/should've transcended grunge to join that whole movement, only, they were not Brits.  Sometimes, I wonder would say the Pretenders have been ignored, if based in America...

thanks so much for reminding me of that Lightning Seeds song, Sailor!  it's an anthem.  did you catch, I call it a tribute, the little guitar does 'Every boy and Every Girl'* from Sylvain Sylvain's 1980 solo album--also a great song.  WWMT? (what would Morrissey think?).  ha

yes, now that I see the list, I bought more of these than I thought...   You should school bugs on the 90's, Sailor.


*yes, Steve Earle liked that song too...

Thanks, Sailor!   (did you ever see Morrissey live?). 

sorry to say, I never saw the Smiths or even Morrissey live, other than bootleg concert tapes.  It's a regret, since to me, The Smiths were the greatest band of the 80's.  yes, just a little better than R.E.M. all in all/America was pretty awful in the 80's., kind of like it is now.

I've just watched this 4 part documentary series on "Punk" on EPIX--I waited until the episodes were free on my terrible cable service Comcast Xfinity.  Johnny Rotten is fat now, but comes off very well.  Surprisingly so.  I feel a little sorry for the 'hardcore' guys from L.A., but sorry, they deserved it, even Henry Rollins (just listen to yourself, bro).  Destroying punk the first time was bad enough, the second time was unforgivable.  Just how few women and non-whites were allowed in those...ug, mosh pits?   but again, Flea comes off well. 

The post-punk hero comes across as the guitarist from Bad Religion, Brett Gurewitz, who was smart and unapologetically song/music and lyric-oriented, and the Warped Tour guy took way too much bleep for doing essentially what a Bill Graham use to be rightfully praised for.  Would've made me happier to say, kick off Penelope Speeris in favor of a Replacements section, but you can't have everything...

my firts festival was inthe 90's. I saw Beck, Skunk Anansie, and the smashing Pumpkins with my then partner. Later i saw many concerts. Last festival i attended i saw Brian. I never saw morrissey live as well. I'm just too cool for festivals these days (AH) i wanted to go to the same place morrisey performed a couple years ago and see Patty Smith. She'll never be old... nortoo young :/. Speaking of young, i missed on that one because it was raining cats and dogs. I Know liddon is fat and addicted to apple products. Henri, he's cool. And me i just was a kid that spent too much time with music newspapers and cable TV
