“I was dissapointed after picking up Live Forever on...”

Written on: 09/04/2004 by RichardJohnson (1 review written)

I was dissapointed after picking up Live Forever on DVD for 6 quid. Very pretentious linking it all to the conservative and Thatcher years! Are you telling me Noel G and Oasis's brilliant music wouldn't have had the same impact if there wasn't to be a change of government? It's easy to make events fit a story if that's the story you want to tell but for me they missed out the soccer tournament Euro 96 when England did so well, Radiohead's two awesome albums (although strangely they are played but not credited) groups like Cast etc. In the end Noel and Oasis seem to be laughing and still smiling as I'm sure they see the funny side of a pretentious film being made because they wrote some great music in dingy bedsits in Manchester. New Labour and Politics had nothing to do with this at all, Blair just tried to look trendy by courting the popular stars of the day thats all. The media were probaly having a great time trying to link in Damien Hurst and the fashion folks but for everyone else it was business as usual but there were some decent CD's in HMV. Don't bother with this film just buy Oasis Definetly Maybe, Morning Glory, Heathen Chemistry and OK Computer, The Bends & Hail to The Thief by Radiohead and the Blur Albums.

I was disappointed with the film myself - especially as they left out the band/couple that kickstarted the whole thing which was Suede and Brett Anderson's early influence over Justine Frischmann, who went on to discuss/define the whole Britpop ethos with Damon Albarn.
<br>
<br>The main problem was that even though there was a definite connection between the popularity of Britpop and the rise of New Labour, the film was so interested in the interviews with Noel & Damon that it failed to make its own point which was that Britpop depolicticized indie music thereby bringing it into the mainstream which in turn allowed New Labour to capitalise on that. Once it had been co-opted it lost any power it might have had to be an influential social force.
<br>
<br>It's all been described and explained much better in <i>The Last Party</i> by John Harris which you should read because it's much better than this flimsy excuse for a documentary.

Very well put, the film touched on the politics but to me (as you say) the links were not easily apparent. I only bought it as it was on sale!!
