No No Nineties

The Nineties weren’t just about grunge. There was britpop and girl groups and shoegaze and angsty girl artists (remember Alanis Morrisette?) and nu metal and fuzzy stoner rock and other things. Well, it was a mixed bag, and presenter Kurt Gallagher remembers it all, including the bad whiff of post modernism that was in the air that decade. Don’t expect him to apologize for it. Only on Swamp Radio.
