Dizzy Heights #64: ‘90s UK Alternative, Part III: The Pop Mix

Dizzy Heights #64: ‘90s UK Alternative, Part III: The Pop Mix

Playing tracks by

Del Amitri, World Party, James, The La’s, The Lightning Seeds and more.

Chart positions

This show was 87th in the global alternative chart.

We bring the ‘90s UK Alternative series to an end with, ironically, the bands that had the most success on the charts. Several acts here – if not these songs, though most of these songs fared well – hit Number One, and strangely enough, some of these songs fared better on the US charts than they did on the UK charts. Del Amitri and White Town, we’re looking in your direction.

This series was such fun to put together, and I hope you enjoyed listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thank you, as always, for listening.

Just listened to this over the past few days...I had no idea how much music you had turned me on to from that period. Patty was impressed with my knowledge of songs that she had never heard, including some that I had never heard, but recognized voices, sounds, etc. Probably my favorite sho so far!

Thank you so much!

I still think the best music was made between 1989 and the winter of 1991- a few short months where chimey guitars rules the world.

1991 was a very good year. One of the best, really.
