Rejoice! The mighty Blur are 21, and what better way to celebrate...

Posted by Alex Bec,

Today marks the 21st anniversary of Blur’s first ever album release, Leisure and has also sprung a subsequent collectors box set release cannily titled Blur 21 . So, for my usual Monday Morning Music Video slot it feels like sacrilege to dedicate the pixels to anyone else. I’ve wasted months, if not years of my life watching music videos and from the thousands that have entered my eyes, Blur’s always seem to leave a lasting impression. Triumphs include making a discarded milk carton huggable ( Coffee & TV ) to bathing with page 3 girls ( Country House ) and we’ve even run our own feature on their success back in February. But now, there’s a complete YouTube collection of their back catalogue, and a stonking exhibition of photographs at Londonnewcastle on Redchurch Street to boot. Use this week as an excuse to gorge yourself on as many as your boss will let you.
