3 Ways 2016 Marks The Return Of The 90s
So far 2016 has seen an exciting list of 90s classics being brought back to life. Most notably, the news broke that Trainspotting 2 was in the works, with the first film a cult classic, there are high hopes for the sequel. Although the script will mirror the second book “Porno” -it will not be under the same name. Not a great title to have in your internet history….
Also rumoured to be in the early stages of pre-production is a remake of comedy classic Drop Dead Fred. Taking the place of late legend Rik Mayall is Russell Brand, who I think we all agree, has some pretty large shoes to fill.
We won’t lie, there’s some 90s tracks that we are more than happy to leave in the past (Barbie Girl by Aqua springs to mind), but one return that we will warmly welcome back is Blur’s. After a 13 year wait for new music, they sprang back into action with their latest album since 2003’s “Think Tank”. “The Magic Whip” showcased elements we love about the 90’s sensation with modern fine tuning. NME dubbed the album as “familiar but explorative…a triumph”.
Returning to the touring circuit this summer are The Stone Roses. The Mancunian band were the epitome of 90s alternative-rock culture and their legacy still influences new artists twenty years later. The sold out UK shows are based in their home city of Manchester in June. They are also headlining T in The Park Festival in July, making it an unmissable summer for any Stone Roses fan.

Let’s be honest, we never expected to be sporting dungarees post 1999 - but since 2015 we’ve seen 90s trends fly back into our wardrobes, this time better than ever. Alongside the overalls, we also saw the return of other 90s faves like chokers, bucket hats and jelly shoes. Although we love that over-sized jazzy shirts have made a comeback, we are so ready for the return of denim, denim and um, more denim?
