40 From 40: 1995

Britpop Now! Yeah! There is a little of that, judiciously selected, in our thirtieth timelocked roundup but also a reminder that very interesting things were happening just out of that sightline both in the fringes and in dance areas and American lo-fi (Number One Cup are this instalment's Spotify refuseniks) Of course it's worth remembering that away from a week of mid-August sales competitiveness the charts were for large parts of the year dominated by Robson & Jerome, now a Game Of Thrones-related meme, and the Outhere Brothers, who aren't even that well remembered. Elsewhere Richey vanished, Jerry Garcia died, Robbie left Take That, the Beatles brought out the first Anthology compilation and Free As A Bird, REM's Bill Berry suffered a brain aneurysm mid-gig and a statue of Michael Jackson was floated down the Thames. It now stands outside a McDonalds in Holland, as should be all our fates. There's a cover in here, you may note, but this was the version we first heard and still prefer it, so there.
