Double Figures: Ten Years Of The Domino Effect

Ben Thompson, Domino Records, July 2003

CAPTAIN'S LOG, stardate 1993: John Major's village-cricket-and-warm-beer based moral crusade inspires a parallel "back-to-basics" drift in UK rock 'n' roll (with Justine Frischmann as its Edwina Currie). The conservative musical movement widely known as Britpop rushes to close down the new creative vistas opened out by My Bloody Valentine and The Aphex Twin (preferring to focus instead on a nostalgic core curriculum of The Beatles, The Kinks, David Bowie and The Who).
