A brawny guitar riff, a swaggering harmonica and a thumping drum – the opening few bars of Why Me? Why Not set the scene for the rest of the record. Clearly, Liam Gallagher’s downtempo album will just have to wait. Following two refreshingly honest albums during his Beady Eye parenthesis (2009 – 2014), the crazier half of Oasis released his debut solo album As You Were in 2017. At the age of 45, the Mancunian set in stone his obsession with the sixties, avoiding any unnecessary frills to give his songs real panache. Two years later, he has amplified that raw, direct feeling with Why Me? Why Not, an album which is totally in tune with his usual sound. Channelling his inner Lennon on Once and McCartney on Halo, Liam Gallagher even tunes into the Oasis sound without Noel on Be Still. In no way does he reinvent the wheel, but instead he works on fine-tuning his songwriting skills. A great record. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock
