The term Britpop first came around 1992 when bands like Suede , Oasis , Pulp , The Auteurs , Steroelab & PJ Harvey first got record deals. It wasn`t so much a genre or an era. It was used more as a overall reference to the British music scene which had been in decline since the mid 80s.
Most of the original 'Britpop' bands were bands who had been around a few years putting out stuff on indie labels.

Then around 94/95 around the time of the Blur/Oasis war , the major labels latched onto it & began signing anyone who sounded like The Smiths/The Jam/The Beatles and it became a much more generic term.

The 'Britpop' movement died out around 1997. Most of the leading bands of it put out bad albums , most of the also rans sold very few albums and lost their record deals or split up.It died pretty much overnight. Some people claim Britpop died the day Oasis released their Be Here Now album.

Think Tank = Damon Albarn solo album with members of Blur on it.


Well thats my reasoning for it existing anyway.

Alex James did a lot of work on it aswell apparently. I actually really like it. Totally different from anything Blur did before, of course, but still good. It's like the missing link between Blur and Gorillaz, and to me that isn't a bad thing.

Yeah but Albarn was more interested in what Fatboy Slim wanted than members of his own band. There was a reason why Graham Coxon called him 'Big Mouth Slim'

Fat Boy Slim only produced on 2 of the songs on the album, so that has been blown out of proportion.

NEWS JUST IN: Albarn along with a few of his famous friends are working on a project blah blah blah... just go on nme.com

I`ll knock up a kind of compilation album with a load of obscure Britpop and upload it if anybody is interested.
