While the rest of New England spent the weekend bracing for that wet, windy, bitch named Irene, WFNX Program Director PAUL DRISCOLL set off for Old England to take in this year's Reading Festival. It won't be long before PD is back in the states, armed with stories about partying too hard backstage with the Joy Formidable or Viva Brother or whoever, but we seemed to already find the weekend's highlight, courtesy of YouTube and those reformed and revitalized Britpop veterans from Sheffield.
Our list of the Top 100 Britpop Anthems of the '90s is now on the streets, in the cloud, and on the airwaves. If you can't pick up an issue, we've given you the entire list online. What's that? You don't agree with it? We would've never guessed. And we defintely wouldn't want you to go voting every song on the list up or down and completely re-arranging the thing
What the world needs now is Jarvis Cocker, and 2011 is already shaping up as quite the comeback year for the lanky Britpop legend and his Sheffield Sex City bandmates, Pulp.
Rumors of a Coachella appearance in April are rampant on the internets (or maybe just in my head), and Pulp have already committed to a couple of Euro festival dates (Spain's Primavera Sound on May 27 and Wireless Fest in London's Hyde Park on July 3).
