Lush - Ladykillers
While America was drowning its sorrows post-grunge in flannel shirts and grandma sweaters, across the pond the English music scene emerged from a stir fried raver scene and hearkened back to the Beatles, filtered through a post-punk haze. I remember reading an interview with Liam Gallagher of Oasis talking about how he thought that Nirvana's attitude on their song "I Hate Myself and Wish I Was Dead" was "shite".
Now, hate Oasis all you want, but you gotta admit that there was a lot of good music in Brit Pop, certainly better than the crap that America was listening to at the time, like Seven Mary Three or Live.
