Britpop's Not Dead
This band is keeping my hope alive for all that guitar-driven late 90's music that competed for my love of all that electronic non-sense of the day. Okay, not all of it was non-sense, to me. I found a foot in both camps and that was not the usual thing to do in those days. I loved pure electronic music as much as I loved the more organic efforts. It was always that way with me... I embraced the Madchester scene while blasting Skinny Puppy between Inspiral Carpets and The Charlatans and The Ocean Blue. All of this while hanging out with hard-core Goth people. They all had their dirty secrets too. If you met them today, you'd be right to poke holes in their facade.
