Playlist: An Introduction to Blur


Share This Article:

BlurBy their standards Blur’s Brit Awards performance may have been shambolically below par but it’s hard to criticise them receiving the Outstanding Contribution to Music award.

They have been one of the most consistently inventive and surprising bands in pop music history from their emergence in the early nineties inspired by baggy and shoegaze sounds, through their holy trinity of albums which birthed and popularised the ‘Britpop’ era, to the post-Britpop reinvention as a furious and inventive alt-rock band.

That’s before the final years with some of their best song-writing and a final album where they delved in to African and Krautrock influences.

So much could be written about the impact Blur have had on popular music, but instead why not give our introduction playlist a listen to hear for yourself.....
