    Mike Flowers Pops were funny.

    Did Denim do that song that went "Officer, I'm sorry, but it fell off the back of a lorry"?

    great era of music... Other bands that spring to mind that I don't think have been mentioned are The Seahorses with Johnny Marr on guitar. And The Eels..
    Britpop for me was more about the sound... Very guitar driven and typified by the above as well of course by Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Ocean colour scene etc...

    I liked Portishead, the Cardigans, and the Manic Street Preachers, too.

    Same... remember those two amazing Portishead albums then after what seemed like an eternity they released the third album which never really appealed to me ...I just recall a machine-gun track !?!?

    Nope - all UK (not sure about Nancy Boy - see below).

    Mike Flowers Pops were a faux-easy listening band, famous for doing a "lounge" cover of the Oasis song, Wonderwall
    Denim were formed by Lawrence, he of Felt fame (a Peel favourite) - he has now moved on to Go Kart Mozart
    No Way Sis were, as above, an Oasis tribute act
    Don't recall Nancy Boy - there was a single by Placebo of that title, are you thinking of that, fatpizzaman?

    All these were greats no doubts - basicaly there was too many to choose from I think and the "Gene" was so wide

    To me this is how the 60s music era must have felt!!

    A total out and out classic I heard earlier on today was East 17 and Gabrielle with "If You Ever"

    What a smoothie song this beauty was - probably made even better by the best male vocalist and best (and very underated female vocalist) that Gabrielle was back in the day

    Modern Day Soul Music (as well as a real, real tearjerker indeed "If You Ever" was without any doubt. Though I'm jaundist to it bringing back heaps of memories (mainly good, but a few bad ones too personaly in a mixed up time in my life), it will always remain a classic for me .....especialy it's first line/words/intro!!!
