Cool Britannia are a rockin’ five piece band, smashing out all the Britpop hits from Oasis, Blur, The Verve, Stereophonics, Pulp, Travis, Happy Mondays and much more!
Late 2019, after watching a late night concert in Brisbane, a drunken conversation took place amongst some friends and fellow musicians. Strong opinions aired about the 90s Britpop scene vs American 90s Grunge scene, the great quality of that music and the last era of real Rock n Rollers! The idea was born … Cool Britannia!
Cool Britannia are not a tribute band exactly … they’re not trying to look like or sound exactly like any one of these amazing 90s bands. They’re a group of musicians who love to perform the songs from this specific era, the best they can … and they rock! They capture the fun and epitomise the optimism by bringing you a wide repertoire of Britpop classics.
The term ‘Cool Britannia’ was a name for the period of increased pride in the culture of the United Kingdom throughout the 1990s, inspired by Swinging London from 1960s pop culture. The success of Britpop and musical acts such as Blur and Oasis led to a renewed feeling of optimism following the tumultuous years of the 1970s and 1980s. The name is a pun on the title of the British patriotic song “Rule, Britannia!”.
