Often described as one of the greatest British bands of all time, Blur have flirted with a range of different styles and genres across their active years. Blur took inspiration from British music of the 60s, and wrote many songs about everyday life. Graham Coxon’s signature chromatic riffs and Damon Albarn’s exaggerated ‘east end’ accent were integral parts of their earlier songs. The band started off writing ‘Madchester’ influenced songs, but only really gained critical and commercial success with the release of Parklife in 1994. Blur were part of the ‘Cool Britannia’ period in the late 90s that centred around the success of Britpop internationally, and the election of the New Labour government in 1997.
