    It’s a psychedelic, hazy, lazy Sunday afternoon of an album in places. A strident, powerful but delicate and beautiful album. It’s not Herman’s Hermits or the Droning Bones though. What it really is, is the sound of the now, informed by the past, maybe, but it’s also the sound of the future. A rejection of nostalgia, a manifesto for a new generation.

    The Britpop scene was a tidal wave of joy for me at the time and the music continues to bring warm feelings and good memories years later.

    I had to write about what it was really all about and what it was really like for a kid like me, living in a coastal town in Scotland where ambition burned low and where dressing a bit like Jarvis Cocker at any point before 1995 would have resulted in physical violence from the boys who would later form the core demographic for the likes of Oasis.
