Blur Biography


One of Britain's most enduring and admired bands, Blur were born in 1989 and went on to great success throughout the 90s, defining a whole era.

Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree released their debut album Leisure in 1991, followed by the Britpop-defining Modern Life Is Rubbish in 1993 and chart toppers Parklife in '94 and The Great Escape in '95.

The eponymous album Blur (1997) contained perhaps one of their most well known tracks, Song 2, which brought mainstream success in the US.
