Neo-Glam Lyrics

Neo-glam is not a term for '80s hair-metal bands, but rather an offshoot of Britpop that, like the Britpop movement itself, was ushered in by Suede. Suede set the style for neo-glam by taking the stomping rockers and sweeping ballads of glam-era David Bowie and combining them with Morrissey's introspective romanticism -- a fusion that was, naturally, heavy on male androgyny. The Britpop bands who followed Suede also looked to quintessentially British influences, but a small cadre concentrated specifically on reviving the stylish excess of '70s glam -- bands including the Auteurs, Nancy Boy, Placebo, and Spacehog.
