  • Whatever happened to Britpop? Jun 15, 2012 - 9:00 am
  • Forget “London 2012”, this summer it’s all about the 1990s – with the Stone Roses reunion gigs, Suede headlining the Hop Farm festival, and Blur playing the Olympics closing ceremony gig.

    As 40-something fans relive the glory days of “Cool Britannia”, FT pop critic Ludovic Hunter-Tilney looks back at the renaissance of British rock 20 years ago, and asks – was it all it was it cracked up to be? And what is its legacy? He is joined in the studio by Richard Clayton and David Cheal.

    Featuring music from the Stone Roses, Oasis, Blur and Pulp.

    Produced by Griselda Murray Brown
