Shoe Swap: Battle of Britpop

Diff'rent Strokes duo, Jade and Dave go head to head tonight in a battle of Britpop and British pop! What's the difference, you say? Well, put it this way... the genres are not interchangeable when describing Blur and Spice Girls!

A few weeks back Dave said to Jade, "I love my Britpop!"

Being of the indie alternative persuasion Jade was expecting glowing tales of Dave's exploration of 1990s British 'lad' types like Blur, Oasis, Pulp et al. But then he continued, to talk about Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Girls Aloud, Sugababes... (*insert Jade's outrage here*)

Surely it is common knowledge that British pop is not known as 'britpop'!

Well this Shoe Swap couldn't be timelier... coinciding with Oasis' announcement for what must be the hundredth time that they were breaking up, Dave and Jade will be paying tribute to Britpop and British pop on Diff'rent Strokes tonight!

Diff'rent Strokes with Jade & Dave
