A Field Guide to ... delves into music’s most influential genres to uncover the innovators and agitators who changed music history forever.
In A Field Guide to Britpop, Steve Wide explores a scene fueled by north–south rivalries, tribal fashion, and a good cup of tea. Uncover the artists and albums, the who’s who, and hangabouts that defined the era. From Blur’s jaunty pop, Pulp’s working-class poetry, and Suede’s dark tales of the elegantly wasted, to the pub sing-alongs of Oasis – Britpop looked to the past to reshape the future, becoming the last true music scene of the 20th century.
