Bernard Butler, former guitarist with indie heroes Suede, has attacked the current trend of 1990s bands embarking on high-profile reunions.
He said: "There's an awful lot of Britpop reunions going on at the moment and I find it embarrassing personally.
"I think it's got no relevance to what's going on at the moment."
Blur and The Verve are the biggest Britpop bands to have made comebacks. Butler is now a producer, working with acts like Duffy and Black Kids.
He was speaking after receiving the Music Producers' Guild Award for producer of the year, which also doubles as the Brit Award for best producer.
Asked whether he had received any offers to get his old band back together, he told BBC News: "I've never had an offer to do anything as Suede.

"I'm obsessively opposed to nostalgia. I hate the idea of it. It doesn't work. And it doesn't interest with me at all.
"What's important is not what I did last week, it's what I'm going to do next week. I made great records - I love them. My kids play them now. But that's for them and everyone else."
Of the raft of current reunions, he said: "I know it's good fun and everything and sure, you can't deny someone a good night out but personally I just feel uncomfortable with nostalgia.
"If I could dedicate six months of my life to one thing, would it be somebody who's doing something that's interesting and totally new, or something that reflects something I did 15 years ago?
"You couldn't possibly be a human being and be motivated by that."
Butler did reunite with Suede singer Brett Anderson in 2004 - but under the guise of a new band, The Tears. They folded after just one album.
Suede were one of the most adored Britpop bands, effectively kicking off the scene when they made it big in 1992 with indie anthems like Metal Mickey, Animal Nitrate and Stay Together.
The Verve, led by Richard Ashcroft, buried the hatchet last year to headline festivals including Glastonbury and V, and release a warmly-received comeback album Forth.
Blur, meanwhile, will play a string of major shows this summer and are heavily tipped to top the bill at this year's Glastonbury.
