Often created in opposition to mainstream music, Indie or Indie Rock is the output of authentic bands that are producing music away from the big commercial labels. The movement is regarded as being created in the UK with the release of C86 tape by NME. The C86 tape was a collection of bands and included Primal Scream, The Wedding Present, The Soup Dragons and Half Man Half Biscuit. The indie scene spawned the Stone Roses and Oasis and more recently the Arctic Monkeys and Mystery Jets. We recommend John Robb’s The Stone Roses and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds –Any Road Will Get Us There.
