Book launch for 'I Was Britpopped: The A-Z of Britpop
Friday 3rd November 19:00 - 20:00 at London - Camden
The first truly comprehensive guide to the Britpop movement – for those who grew up in the 1990s (and those who just wish they had).
Britpop: it’s the only term that can accurately encompass the bright, bold sound and attitude that burst from the United Kingdom in the ’90s. Beginning with the release of Blur’s single ‘Popscene’ in 1992, peaking with Oasis’ triumphant outdoor live shows at Knebworth in 1996 and closing with Pulp’s come-down album This is Hardcore in 1998, this alternative rock subgenre grew to be one of Britain’s most impactful musical movements of the modern era.
Here, in more than 500 light-hearted but meticulously researched entries, musicians and fans Jenny Natasha and Tom Boniface-Webb pay tribute to a brief but pivotal moment in musical history; turning the spotlight on key players like Liam Gallagher, Brett Anderson, Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn as well as unsung heroes who fought under the red, white and blue banner in the Britpop revolution.
Please join us for an evening with the authors, to celebrate the launch of their book.
