Quite possibly the most intriguing music genre.

Indie is wrong as hell for two reasons.

1. That describes Mumford & Sons. They are not indie.
2. Indie is a matter of record labels, not sound.



Everything else is pretty spot on though.

Interesting point. That is more or less how 'indie' started, though it became a generic term.

Yes, "indie" now is used as a term for a certain style of music, regardless of labels, and encompasses pretty much anything that has guitars in it and is not mainstream pop or classic rock.

Indie stopped being a term that meant anything some time in the 90s didn't it? It certainly means nothing now beyond what Miki quite rightly quantifies as guitar pop / rock which sits just left or right of the very mainstream. Virtually anything can be indie now - some people who don't follow music too closely would probably lump the likes of Coldplay or Muse into indie for example based on the fact it contains guitars and white boys.

Yes, when the best-selling Britpop acts were assimilated into the mainstream in the late 90s, true 'indie' disappeared.

So, are Blur partly responsible....? :oops:
