Celebrating 20 years of Britpop

11 April 2014

This month sees the 20th anniversary of some big Britpop moments. It was 20 years ago today that Oasis released their debut single, Supersonic. Two weeks later, Blur's Parklife album came out. But we all know it wasn't just Blur Vs. Oasis...

I wanted to do a print to mark 20 years of all things Britpop. The playlist became the focus - I've included first wave bands, second wave bands, new wave of new wave bands, post-britpop bands, basically any British indie bands that were around during the height of Britpop and were influenced by it or were part of it. If the 90's was your decade, then it's really worth a listen - I don't think I've enjoyed compiling a playlist quite as much as this one.

On one hand I can't believe it's been 20 years, but on the other, as I was working on the picture and listening to the revival of The Evening Sessions as part of Britpop at the BBC, it was as if no time had passed at all, and I was transported back to my teenage bedroom trying to get my coursework done to the exact same soundtrack.

I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as I have.
