Episode overview: Series telling the story of pop music through fans’ memories and memorabilia. Lauren Laverne celebrates the decade 1986-1996 when music had the power to unite fans – even sworn rivals – like never before. It’s a decade that starts with a turn to the alternative, even among the fans of mega pop bands. We hear from Depeche Mode fans who were invigorated by the band’s darker sounds in Black Celebration, and a man who discovered a burgeoning UK hip hop scene when he moved to London and shares footage of his friends MCing and DJing at home. In 1988, the acid house wave hit and the show meets those who lived through it and loved it. Out of the clubs came mega pop bands. The programme meets an avid Take That fan who bought every type of merchandise she could as a teenager. Another fan takes viewers back to the site of her first ever Blur gig in 1994 and the show finishes by talking to fans of the most successful girl group of all time – The Spice Girls.
