6M0120120424Stuart Maconie's profile of one of the most important British groups of the 1990s.
Stuart Maconie charts Blur's success, integrating interviews and music, from the early days of Britpop to the release of their seventh album, Think Tank.
The series looks at where the band came from musically and talks to those responsible for signing, recording and producing them. The band all have their say too!
It traces Blur's success with Leisure; through the lacklustre sales performance and record company arguments which afflicted the making of Modern Life Is Rubbish; to near bankruptcy and the breakthrough of their third album Parklife. This sold in excess of 1.2 million copies in the UK alone and launched Blur into the platinum league.
It also covers their rivalry with Oasis and how they changed direction with the Blur and 13 albums, before looking at Think Tank and how life is different without guitarist Graham Coxon.
This documentary first broadcast on Radio 2 in 2003, the same year Blur released Think Tank.
