NSR: Oh. My. Sh*t. Blur to Reunite for 09 Shows
Colchester in the area! That's Damon Albarn himself confirming that one of the pillars of the 'Cool Britannia' era is finally burying the bullsh*t to reunite for live gigs next summer. Blur are set to play a massive show in London's Hyde Park this summer to the delight of waifish models, 90's glory-seekers, scooter enthusiasts, Anglophiles and actual British people alike. And then there's me.
When I used to DJ a short-lived Britpop™ night in college (at The Curtain Club in Deep Ellum, Dallas) there were 5 songs that were fail-proof to get every girl with a bobbed haircut and an A-line dress and all of the dude's wearing Ben Sherman shirts under their anorak's --which were wholly unnecessarily even in the dead of a Texas winter-- out on the dance floor. 2 out of the 5 were from Blur; 'Girls and Boys' and the original baggy banger, 'There's No Other Way'.
