This week, the world of music is celebrating 20 years since Britpop was born. While UK acts had been making similar sounds for years, it was definitely 1994 that it became a real force of nature - shaping music, fashion and culture around the world for years to come. So if 1994 was the birth of Britpop, what were the albums that kickstarted it all?
It seems as if there were a fair few bands in the right place at the right time, ready to ride the wave of the trend and deliver records that would go on to define the sound of the decade.
