"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?"

Looks like it's time for a round of musical conspiracy theories...

First, from the Guardian, Kevin Shields claims that the '90s Britpop craze may've been partially fueled by state machinations. Naturally, some lulz stack up in the comments section.

Relatedly, Luke Turner at The Quietus attempts to argue that if music over the past 2 decades or so has seemed a bit aesthetically anemic or insignificant or chronically retrograde, it's because of a hegemony of a Boomer-era mythos that's perpetually sucking all of the "cultural oxygen" out of the room.
