However you wanna spell it, there's certainly something in the air... maybe it's a reaction to the guitar music is dead crap or because Noel has an album out or people trying to prevent Stone Roses ruining its memory. Or maybe people banging on about it never went away?
Here are a few things that I thought might be of interest, in a thread aimed purely for pondering the genre and its demise... and more importantly this is a thread for sharing anecdotes about members of brit-pop bands who are doing weird jobs now (Cliff from Gay Dad works at a music college, for instance), for sharing your favourite brit-pop songs, for bragging about limited edition seven inches you own, and for remembering lesser known bands like Kent and Jack...pretty much like a prequel to yesterday's Brit-Rock thread...
