    I first got into Hurricane #1 because of Andy Bell, and having been a Ride fan. I listened to the first two Hurricane albums a lot when I was an undergrad. I never saw them live at the time, but did for the first time when they toured about 3 years ago (with a fairly different line-up, apart from Alex Lowe)

    I actually downloaded their newer (3rd and 4th) albums a few days ago and was listening to them on the way into work this morning.

    I've obviously done the whole pills and clubs thing, but in terms of dance music in my record collection, it only really stretches to indie-dance intersection bands like New Order, Ladytron, Le Tigre, Crystal Castles and Klaxons

    I saw Hurricane#1 at the Brixton Academy 20 years ago, was my first gig - they were supporting Ocean Colour Scene.

    Didnt know anything of them at the time, but they were bloody great on the night. I think Ive still got a sample cassette they were handing out at the gig, had 3 songs on it.

    Puressence is a great shout, GB, although I’d have This Feeling as their best tune. Only Forever is an outstanding album.

    One of my favourite ever bands. And that album is incredible.

    The singer has a new album in the pipeline apparently: https://twitter.com/nihilistsmusic

    Did the Lightning Seeds count as Britpop? Them & Pulp are the two bands I recall being really into at that time...

    A few off the top of my head...

    Embrace - Nature's Law
    Kasabian - Days are Forgotten
    Shed Seven - Chasing Rainbows
    Paolo Nutini - Last Request
    Guns n Roses - pick 6 to make up the top ten

    (edit: unless Appetite for Destruction is excluded in which case 6 might be a struggle, but Patience, Estranged, November Rain & Don't Cry would probably make the cut...)

    Not sure. Anyway, thinking about it, Pulp's best stuff came before Britpop was really a thing: Freaks and Separations every time over His'nHers and Different Class.

    I used to be a big fan of Ash.

    Think something that has hurt modern music is lack of small mid sized venues playing live music. Can think of a few places when I moved down to Brighton in the early 90s that are not there now. Used to go and listen to dance music one night and the next go to a gig.

    Also I don't think music is taught as much in schools so you do not have as much talent coming through.

    Sadly it seems mainly middle class boys who go to university learn instruments and they are not living the sort of life you usually associate with great music.

    Anyone who likes Coldplay for example deserves ear cancer.

    1977 is pretty much THE album of my teenage years, very nostalgic to listen to these days

    Ash’s drummer, Rick McMurray, is a fan of my hometown club back in N Ireland, the mighty Ards FC. Used to see him at games all the time, even when they were pretty big.

    And that’s my claim to fame. :D

    Hopefully still are. I'm going to see them in about a month's time. Their new album is pretty good.

    They did a good, long interview on Headliners not too long ago: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0683vty

    I'm not so sure about that. Most great musicians from the 60s to 90s were self taught.

    There's definitely a problem that too much music now is made by middle class people. All that Brit School gonads

    But I'm not sure why working class kids don't have that same hunger to escape through music they used to.

    They do but you can't sign on for ages and be given the space to practice and write songs now.

    We should also remember that the music business has always been easier for middle class kids.

    There's a hell of a lot of working/lower class music about these days - probably more than there has ever been, only it's mostly black kids making newer and newer sub genres of hip hop rather than white kids making guitar music.

    I was going to post similar, I’d add that jazz is having a bit of a revival too.

    Huge minimum wage and tax credits, I suspect.

    Being poor isn't what it used to be.

    Hip hop is not music it is people talking nonsense fastly while swaying backwards and forewards. If you want that take a bunch of Alzheimer's patients on a boat trip and give them cocaine just don't try telling me it is music.

    Don't be so narrow minded Chich - you're only denying yourself the opportunity to listen to some good stuff
