As fantastic as the Britpop years were, I think that it may have left a negative legacy and a staid template for British guitar bands that followed. I mean, immediately after britpop, there was a total void, then we had the Libertines (who were great), but after that, for the most part, all we seem to have got is awful bands like the Kaiser Chiefs, The Enemy, and dare I say Kasabian (great first album, sluggish and boring thereafter). I think our bands are stuck in a creative rut, under the shadow of britpop, and lag severely behind creatively vibrant and original bands coming from accross the atlantic (like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire etc etc etc)
