Ah, the 90s - an era now soaked in the warm glow of nostalgia. Rather than just a handful of catchy singles, the floodgates were opened for a wave of bands that would shape not only the sound of the UK, but the culture, art, fashion and even politics for the years ahead. But what happened to the bands that ushered in Cool Britannia? Where are they now? 

Speaking of the 20th anniversary of Britpop this week, BBC DJ Steve Lamacq once said: "For me, this is the week 20 years ago that the musical tectonic plates shifted. On the Tuesday, Oasis played live on Radio 1 for the first time and on the Friday morning we heard the news of Kurt Cobain's death."

It was the likes of Pulp, Suede, Oasis, Blur, Sleeper, Elastica, The Verve and many more that helped shift those plates - but where are they now? Come with us as we revisit the stars of Britpop, and see what happened next.
