OOF, it’s a long one. We were joined for this by author, critic, comic, and musician Marc Burrows. We take a long look at the rise and fall of the most 90s of 90s things, Britpop. We talk about Blur waaaay too much, call ourselves out for accidental sexism, discuss indie dancefloors, music journos, the battle of the bands and even Menswear!!!

There’s a lot to discus here, and whether you danced like Brett with a slap of the hips, or had more of the Liam swagger, we have something in here for you.

While this is technically a podcast, we are powered by Mixcloud, which enables us to embed tunes in the episode.
