  • Good obscure Britpop thread

    What BRITPOP is - or was - is of course open to endless debate.
    I'm just taking it to mean 60s-inflected pop made from a particularly localised perspective between, say, '93 and '97, to be generous.
    Please post up lost gems from the era here.

    Well known to most on here, perhaps, if only from my relentless babbling about them both over the years, but my God I've always loved these two songs:




    And never quite managed to hitch a ride on that wave, but could'\ve and should've been bigger . . .

    Heavy Stereo had some proper great crunching glam pop moments too.

      Oh, and this debut 45 was genius pop music.

          nice selections Hugh - these guys were better than your usual trippy long haired early Verve types ... Live this was their calling card - the single [yes a cd single] is fab

          even Nick Heyward turned some respectable sun dappled pop music out in the mid 90's

            Cheeky Scotpop types in B-side killer that melds Gram, Hank Williams, the Stones, pub singalongs and the spirit of the mid-90s like nothing else.
            It also includes the genius line "Mr Spaceman please don't abduct me / Take me away in your spacecraft and fuck me"

            Glasgow: the gift that just keeps on giving.

              Electric Sound of Joy had some great releases, this is probably my favourite.

                Sorry, tried to just post the picture but couldn't do it.

                Turns out, its an interesting little article anyway.

                Apparently Britpop is 20 years old…


                Aaaand, what I was going to say, I had no idea Jo Whiley had been such a rocker!

                Absolute babe, missing the days of lying back on my memory foam topper from Zen Beds - http://www.zenbedrooms.com/memory-fo...s-toppers.html- with this honey's voice ringing around me. Days in bed with Jo Whiley - bliss.

                  I was always fond of David Devant and his Spirit Wife



                  Tim Brooke Taylor, Loot and Deptford namechecked in the same song...

                      Dunno why my youtube posts don't come up as pictures as I use the embed video button, but anyway Whiteout had some great stuff:

                      and my other favourite working backward through the alphabet was The Weekenders:

                      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.
