    Robbie Williams - probably not very well known in the US, but he is huge in Europe. The first couple of albums he did very britpop inspired and were pretty good, then it kind of went downhill... This track is one of my favorites of his:


    Stereophonics - great welsh band


    Johnny Marr and the Healers

    Heavens, no. I'm quite fond of Echobelly and Sonya Madan.

    Manics.


    Catatonia, featuring my imaginary girlfriend Cerys Matthews. She played my most recent record on her blues radio show on BBC Radio 2. That was pretty cool.


    Texas, featuring my imaginary girlfriend Charlene Spiteri.



    Supergrass that might have been missed earlier



    More Supergrass!

    imho supergrass was doing the best songs. unconventional chords and impeccable songcraft. the first two albums are amazing and completely different. their boxed set is killer. finally in it for the money on vinyl.

    Supergrass & Blur are my favorites from that era. Excellent songwriters and musicians.

    Speaking of Britpop, did they ever figure out what happened to the Manic Street Preachers' Richey Edwards??

    I remember him just vanishing, literally :anon

    I used to love Catatonia. They took forever to get big and for the first few times I saw them they were just playing to a few hundred people. I remember once going to a club after a Catatonia gig, and ran into Cerys who took about twenty minutes to drink us hopelessly under the table before taking her leave. Very cool lady!

    Favourite Catatonia song...

    Some more Britpop highlights that haven't had an airing yet...

    Drugstore. I used to love this band - first time I saw them was supporting Jesus & Mary Chain, then I caught about half a dozen more shows over the years. Isobel was a live wire, but an incredible front woman.



    McAlmont & Butler - followed everything Bernard did in those days but the two M&B albums are genius. Aside from the two showoffs at the front, Mako the drummer who passed away a couple of years ago was a monster and a big ingredient in that band.



    Strangelove were awesome, dark and heavy when everyone else was determined to do the cheeky chappy thing.



    Ultrasound. Saw them playing to thirty people when the first single came out and they blew the roof off. Quite literally, the guitarist had a pair of 4x12s.



    And Marion, whose career finally spluttered to a halt when the singer received a custodial sentence for stealing and attempting to ransom a collection of garden knomes in order to raise money for crack. Odd way to go out, really.

    Slight tangent...I’m a 60/40 Fender guy, but if that’s not the most beautiful guitar ever made, it might as well be a Chiquita. Treasure it.

    Somewhat back on target: Johnny Marr is home. That first generation of post-Smiffs bands had some fantastic players...Bernard Butler is just incredible. I never saw suede with him playing, but have seen them 3 times in the last 10 years or so. Never would have guessed that they would have such staying power, but they are still great. Richard Oakes’ playing is jaw-droppingly fluid.
