Brit Pop Fun for the Whole Family!

I have been a fan of British bands Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys for about 3 or more years now. Their music is high energy, hook-oriented and fun. Both bands write intriguing bass lines and simplistic lyrics on a variety of topics. Kaiser Chiefs are a bit goofier than other British bands, but their music is nothing to laugh about.

After coming into the Brit Pop scene through these bands, I began to fall in love with other similar acts, like The Fratellis*, Franz Ferdinand**, The Rascals, The Last Shadow Puppets, and of course, The Darkness. Listening to these acts got the flame rekindled for me to go back and rediscover my old Brit Pop favorites acts: Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Cracker, Blur, Supergrass, Travis**, The La’s, Manic Street Preachers, The Smiths, The Verve, Super Furry Animals, etc.

With that in mind, I encourage you to try the above link and discover some of the newest stuff coming from our neighbors overseas. Good day!
