About Parklife:



The third studio album from blur, Parklife was released to critical acclaim on 25 April 1994, reaching #1 on the UK Album Charts and garnering four smash hit singles ‘Girls & Boys', ‘End of a Century', ‘Parklife' and ‘To the End', returning blur to prominence at the very heart of the British music scene. Described as “an epoch-defining record” (AllMusic) which “captured the mid-90s zeitgeist” (BBC), the album explores themes of British life and identity, securing a cultural significance that endures to this day. Parklife was nominated for the 1994 Mercury Music Prize and 1995 saw blur take home four BRIT Awards, including Best British Album.



About blur:



Formed in 1989 by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree, blur signed with Food/EMI the same year. Following their 1991 debut Leisure which peaked at #7 in the UK album chart and announced the arrival of blur, the band continued to revolutionise the sound of English popular music with second record Modern Life Is Rubbish (1993). Five successive UK #1 albums followed - with Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995) helping to propel the band to mass popularity in the UK and beyond. The eponymous blur was released in 1997 and seventh album Think Tank (2003) was blur's first as a three-piece after the temporary departure of founding guitarist Graham Coxon. One of the most successful British bands of the last two decades, blur have won a total of five BRIT Awards, and were twice nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. And in 2015, blur returned with critically acclaimed UK #1 album The Magic Whip, 16 years after their last record as a four-piece.
