go here In the first of a two part blog, SHE’S ELECTRIC author Nick Amies writes about the BritPop soundtrack that inspired his novel and formed the background to his younger years.

cheap date lyrics Author Nick AmiesWhen I write, I always see the scenes as they go down onto the page as if they’re playing on a screen in my head. I watch the story unfold in my mind and write down what I see. With this cinematic approach, there is always a soundtrack and when writing She’s Electric, it was the music which played as similarly great and chaotic times played out in my own Britpop life. There were those euphoric, chin-out moments of belligerent self belief scored by songs like Cigarettes and Alcohol, Jailbird and Popscene. There were swaying displays of beer-fuelled brotherhood with friends and strangers to the tune of I am the Mob, The Day We Caught The Train and Just When You’re Thinking Things Over, and then there were those mornings of self reflection and a little self loathing when songs like Your Love it Lies, Altogether and Lazy would be a little too close to the bone. That was the thing with Britpop: whatever mood you were in, what ever situation you got yourself into, there would be a song that reflected that. As the years move on, these songs are still attached to those memories but also still ring true in experiences I have twenty years on.
