Rock UK 90s

rock UK 90s

Notable new genres redefined British rock music in the 90s including Britpop, alternative rock, trip-hop and shoegazing. Britpop was a mainstream pop-rock wave lead in 1993-95 by the groups Pulp, Blur, Suede and Oasis. Alternative rock was marked by the somewhat grunge sound of Radiohead's debut single 'Creep' in 1992, the creative rock of prodigy PJ Harvey from 1992, the raw glam rock of Placebo from 1997 and the dense space-rock of Muse from 1999. Trip-hop burst in with the release of Massive Attack's album "Blue lines" in 1991 and Portishead's LP “Dummy” in 1994, two albums that helped define the trip-hop genre and garner its popularity. As for the shoegaze - or shoegazing - musical genre, it was initiated with the 1991 album "Loveless" by Irish avant-garde rock band My Bloody Valentine and spanned the 2000s.
