Rewind: Helen Love - Long Live The UK Music Scene

Posted on the 11 September 2018 by Rw/ff @rwffmusic
This single was released 20 years ago in September 1998, reaching number 65 in the UK charts. In the mid 90s, the music press was in a frenzy over Britpop. The whole nation would soon be captured, and the party escalated to crazy heights. By 1998, the bubble had burst and the media was awash with doom and gloom over falling sales and a grim outlook for the future of the music industry. Dated but ridiculously catchy, this humorous track by Welsh bubblegum punk outfit Helen Love is full of sarcasm and presents itself ironically, yet in another context it could be the defiant anthem playing as the Britpop ship goes down. This is the band's only entry in the UK singles chart. They have released a number of EPS and albums since, the most recent being the 'Double Denim' single from this year.
