Different for Girls: My True-Life Adventures in Pop (2010)
















Author: Louise Wener
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Ebury Press
Published: June 10, 2010
ISBN: 9780091936518

 In the mid-1990s, something peculiar happened to the pop charts. The genre known as "indie" - guitar-based songs written about in the alternative press, often made by people who were geeks or swots at school - became the stuff of the mainstream. But when what would later be called "Britpop" is written about today, it is usually reduced to a battle between its two biggest bands, Blur and Oasis: a macho class war between four middle-class southerners and a group of working-class northerners.

 This crude sketch ignores all the frontwomen who emerged at the same time. They include Lauren Laverne of Kenickie, now a radio and TV presenter, Justine Frischmann of Elastica, now an artist in the United States, and Sleeper's Louise Wener, now an author of bestselling  fiction. Different for Girls is Wener's riveting memoir of that time, a period full of promise which slowly expired.
