Over the past year the People’s History of Pop has collected music treasures from the past 50 years. We’ve enjoyed seeing all your music mementoes so much that we’re extending our search for memories into the 2000s.
Episode 5 of the People’s History of Pop will cover the years 1997 to 2010; from Radiohead’s release of OK Computer to Adele’s rise to fame. We want to hear from people who grew up listening to genres like UK Garage, Grime and Indie Rock, artists such as the Libertines, the Streets, Ms Dynamite and Dizzee Rascal. Did you watch you favourite musicians rise to fame – either on Myspace like Lilly Allen or on TV talent shows like Girls Aloud?
We also want to hear about your festival memories, after all this is the era where they exploded, from Reading and Leeds to Wireless. And don’t forget technology – what was on your first iPod? Do you still have it? Did you spend your early adolescence creating with Playstation’s Music 2000 or GarageBand? Still got the fruits of your labour? We’d love to hear it…
If you still have old footage, photos, tickets, posters or anything else in your attic, under your bed or in the recesses of your computer and old phones, dig it out and share it.
