|07.15.17||Netflix|| A documentary about the 90s britpop wave with bands like Oasis, Blur, and Pulp. I wasn't so into these bands back in the day but I was into the more dancey stuff coming out of England at the same time (Massive Attack, Portishead, Underworld, Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, etc.) which makes sort of a cameo appearance in this film. I also enjoy Damn Albarn's work via Gorillaz so it was interesting to learn about where he came from. The most interesting part of this movie for me was seeing this fad from the British point of view. My memories are from MTV and them being imports in our market so it was cool to see how popular they were over there. It was also interesting to view this film 15 years later. The interview subjects take a past look at it but really in 2003 they were barely past it. Liam Gallagher still looks stuck in it. A lot has happened since then... particularly when they talk about Blur vs. Oasis... Gorillaz has made such a huge impact since then... I wonder if Albarn would've had perspective had he not "lost" that battle in the 90s. |
Anyway, interesting stuff.
