WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE BRITPOP WARS?
London Town, 1994. Martin Bland was in the right place in the wrong trousers, pouting in polyester when Suede were all the rage, sipping shandies as Oasis rattled Blur at Camden’s Good Mixer, touring the States with rival band Clobber, sexing up The Word, and hobnobbing with Tony Blair at Number 10. You must have blinked and missed him!
Colliding with the famous, or face down on the pavement, wannabe Britpop star Bland and Geezer, his loyal band of underachievers, struggle against the odds in this comic-book tale of the also-ran. Geezer parallels the ups and downs of the early ‘90s British music scene, dips into real events with pathos and playfulness.
Written by William Potter, who has various credits to his name, and is drawn by Philip Bond, who has credits too. Will and Phil's collaborations date back to the early 90s. Overseeing this combo is Off Register Press's own resident editor, Shelly Bond.
