    Brit Pop - 20 Years on

    It's quite hard to believe that it is has been 20 years since the release of Blur's song Girl & Boys & that album was called Parklife. It was at the very beginning of Britpop - a musical and cultural phenomenon prominent in the 1990s. Kathryn is joined in studio by Matthew Devereux from The Pale, to take a trip down memory lane with us.

    Matthew is releasing a new single with The Pale called “What Would The Smiths Do?”  visit www.thepale.ie
