Music with Marty Duda

From Nine To Noon, 11:10 am on 8 August 2012

Along with Oasis and Pulp, Blur was one of the definitive "Britpop" bands of the 1990s. Songs like Boys & Girls, Song 2, Country House and The Universal became the soundtrack of the decade. Their "feud" with Oasis made things even more exciting in the mid-90s. The band split up in 2003 with leader Damon Albarn going on to greater international success with Gorillaz. The four original members of Blur reunited in 2009 and are due to perform, what is rumoured to be their last-ever show, at Hyde Park as part of the Olympic celebrations. Also, they've just released a multiple-disc boxed set of all their albums.
