Indie music in the 1990's was all about scenes, if you were into guitar bands you had your pick from shoegaze, madchester, dreampop and the big daddy of them all Britpop which spilt in a big way over into the mainstream. This playlist has been created for the latter grouping, for anyone with a penchant for mid-90's guitar bands from the UK. Most of the leading lights from Britpop are present with each giving a winning account of themselves whether it be Richard Hawley's (from Pulp) misty eyed reading of 'Silent Night' or Noel Gallagher's (Oasis) acoustic strum through Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody'.

You'll see that our collection of Britpop Christmas songs contains plenty of rendition of classic material like Elastic's take on the Kinks 'Father Christmas' and Kula Shaker's faithful cover of Vince Guaraldi Trio's 'Christmas Time (Is Here Again)' but it is perhaps the new tracks that leave the most lasting impression. So while Coldplay's 'Christmas Lights' may not be the best song they've ever recorded it is undoubtedly one of the best contemporary odes to the season. Welsh band Gorky's Zygotic Mynci also outdo themselves on 'Christmas Eve' which comes across as quiet as a mouse but has the inherent power to move everyone within the same four walls. This playlist's penultimate track is also the most revealing as another Welsh band Super Furry Animal sing about the gift that keeps giving. Just like our favourite season.
