Doug Brod: “They take the best bits of Oasis and the best bits of Blur and mash them all together into a great neo-Britpop sound. That sound never really caught on here: when Oasis became big, they transcended the Britpop idea. But I think people have nostalgia for that 1994 sound. Brother could very well become big here.”

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
