In spite of being the era where – supposedly – girls who were boys liked boys to be girls and did boys like they were girls who did girls like they were boys, Britpop threw up surprisingly few new gay stars. One stellar exception came in the shape of Curve / Echobelly / Snowpony guitarist Debbie Smith, who in her diminutive, dapper frame somehow managed to pack all of the spirit, fire and, above all else, optimism of the early Britpop years, before it was hijacked by Lad mags, Dad rockers and beer monsters. She’s still DJing, gigging and generally being a legend in London to this day.
