addendum to the below

Good to see David Cavanagh mention the death of John Smith in his Uncut piece on Blur.  Quite a radical thing to point out, by their standards.

In his aptly-timed autobiography/autopsy, Luke Haines claims that the term "Britpop" was initially used to refer to pre-Beatles British pop of the Norrie Paramor school.  I'm not familiar with that, although I have seen the term used to refer to British pop as a whole in 1980s music papers. It would be apt, considering where we seem to be returning and where NuLab was probably always destined to end, if it had been used back then, though.
