British Rock Music Part3

Hello, it’s Faye here. I love rock music so I thought it would be good to introduce some genres in rock history to you, focusing on British bands.



Although Britpop sounds like it is referring to British Pop music, it is in fact a genre of alternative rock music from the mid-1990’s. From 1993-1995 was the peak of the movement. It usually uses electric guitars and drums band focuses on a "Britishness" with lyrics referring to British culture and slang.
Here are some Britpop bands worth checking out.



Blur formed in London in 1988. The group consists of singer/keyboardist Damon Albarn, guitarist/singer Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree.
