Britpop in the 90s

213 Britpop in the 90s

Genre Dissection - Roundtable

Release year

What was and is Britpop? We're not sure, so we're hosting a roundtable to try figure out the sounds, bands, legacy and more

Author & Special Guests

For our Britpop round table, we’re joined by returning guests Neal Schmitt and Andy Derer, as well as newbie Jim Kopeny. We talk about how we discovered Britpop and our favorite bands and albums of the era, discuss the effect of “Noelrock” and Wonderwall on the second wave of Britpop bands, and legacy Britpop left behind.

Coming soon
