This week on I Want Candy, host Kevin McCulloch goes to England to listen to Brit Pop. A style of music that emerged in the early 1990’s, Brit Pop was the response to the Grunge movement occuring in America. Brit Pop picked up on the sounds of the riff based guitar pop of the British Invasion and Madchester scene and aimed them at the British Kids. We will examine the musical origins of Brit Pop along with the rise, peak, and eventual fall of the genre. With special guest Mr. Comedy in the studio.
I Want Candy airs every Thursday in the Winter from 10am to noon.
