Today, because of reasons totally under our control, we have moved our dance party Saturdays to Friday. Tune in tomorrow to see why…
Blur emerged in the mid-'90s as the most popular band in the U.K, enforcing a kind of psychedelic guitar pop started by bands like the Stone Roses, the Kinks and the Who. They were categorized immediately as a brit-pop band and they nearly vanished when that faze passed on. Luckily, through some low-fi reinvention blur re-established themselves as an art-pop band in ’97 with their self-titled release and their hit single Song 2 which was used in all kinds of beer commercials. Since then have fallen into a North American rut having only minor success with their last release, think tank, in 2003. Blur’s Damon Albarn is also the frontman for Gorillaz, a band he formed with Del (tha funkee homosapien), The Automator (Dan Nakamura) and Miho Hatori (from Cibo Matto).
