Read in January, 2009

I loved this book! Loaded with amusing anecdotes from the Britpop heyday plus an intelligent look at the role politics played in the movement. Doesn't over-analyze, just tells the story. I was literally laughing out loud at some of the stories, like Alan McGee going to Japan and meeting Michael Jackson and Bubbles while off his face on drugs. As a lifelong Blur fan, this was the first time I ever learned anything about Oasis, as I totally ignored them back then. I have a huge appreciation for them now and can't stop listening to Definitely, Maybe. A total must-read for Britpop lovers!! Great appendices and bibliography too.
