We revisit Elastica's self-titled 1995 debut with help from music journalist Rob Harvilla, host of 60 Songs That Explain the '90s podcast

Author & Special Guests

Elastica burst onto the scene in 1995 with their highly acclaimed self-titled debut album, showcasing the band's distinctive blend of punk-inspired energy and catchy pop hooks. Elastica's minimalist sound and frontwoman Justine Frischmann's laid back vocals separated the band from their Britpop counterparts Blur, Suede, Oasis and Pulp. To help us revisit their freshman effort, we're joined by Rob Harvilla, host of the 60 Songs That Explain the 90s podcast and his new corresponding book, out November 14th.
