90s Britpop.....


Although the genre was relatively short-lived....it did bless us with one the best bands ever...that would be Suede(the London Suede in the states)...unfortunately it also spawned posers like Shed Seven, BLuetones, etc...any thoughts?

I don't know much about the "Brit Pop" scene and would not know what bands would be a part of it, but I'll take a guess....

Radiohead seems to be one of the best things that came out of the 90s. While I ignored their debut album "Pablo Honey" when it came out, their other albums "The Bends" and "OK Computer" were not only great musically, but they seemed to define the feeling of the 90s. The sense that we are evolving in a world of technology and emotional disconnection.

"OK Computer" is like a sign of what is, and what is to come. We are not waiting for the future, but already living in it....along with the side effect. A "technology hangover", if you will....
Britpop is my favorite genre of music, for some reason, in modern music, the Brits just had more soul and passion as the US rock of the 90s and 2000's with a few exceptions, ie Nirvana. It was always a personal opinion this was such because the UK stresses music more the US. Top of the Pops was such an important show, young Brits spent more time listening to old US soul music while the US kids were playing video games or watching MTV Beach shows
Slowdive, Ride, Charlatans.
like the smiths, how much you like suede is directly proportional to how you respond to the flamboyance/charisma of the lead singer. i saw 'em in london in the early 90s and came away with mixed feelings--great guitarist and very good songs, altho the singer was ultimately a bit over the top with his bowie-ism. still, 90s britpop is a good genre--unlike most of the 80s new wavey stuff, the first couple of suede records (as well as early oasis, blur, pulp) still hold up very well.
