    Turns out it was a load of laddish wank.

    It never really was very cool though was it?

    Not like say, Shoegazing or the The Scene That Celebrates Itself etc.
    (though, they both had their detractors - hence their names)

    Some people still think it's cool.

    I just got invited to this. In 2014.

    Let me see if I'm reading this properly

    Pulp and Blur ; Good

    Everyone else; Bad

    Therefore the whole scene was a bad thing ?

    No one show this deluded cunt any surf pop.

    I liked loads of britpop, still do. Every scene is somewhat disappointing in hindsight. There's always a handful of bands and albums that stand the test of time, and the rest make up the numbers. The lad thing was boring though.

    I like the general iconoclasm of the piece.

    Britpop still has some kind of sheen to it, of summers spent being young.
    No harm to give its rep a bit of a kicking. No harm at all.

    Pulp had a handful of good tunes. Everything else was TERRIBLE, and if you liked it then you hate music - FACT

    Ruined how ? How does anyone ruin a record ? This is another middle class knob looking down his nose at a scene which he didn't feel part of and having a pop at it based on his own prejudices and withou bothering his hole to look at the wider context it existed in. Him and Emily Noseybaum should start a rag together.

    I could care less about Oasis. Gave up on them around Morning Glory.

    I just like someone giving out in the Guardian.

    In fairness, Oasis were great back in the day. And Noel Gallagher is easily one of the most entertaining British (or otherwise) musicians ever.

    He gives great interviews. Let him write for the for the Observer so.

    The writing was on the wall musically after Morning Glory.

    Oasis were probably the last band I can think of that were just massive. You could not avoid hearing them, you knew all the songs even if you never owned an album.

    Did you read the article? That's exactly what I thought he was at least trying to do. No need to be so touchy cos you like boorish three-chord pub rock.
