Celebrating 20 Years of "Parklife"

April 25, 2014




From the very first episode of Friends to the first screening of the now legendary Pulp Fiction, 2014 marks twenty years since some of the most iconic moments in pop culture and has since sparked a revival of all things 90’s. However, it was on this day twenty years ago that a little known band from Colchester, Essex ignited the fires of a whole new genre of British music by releasing the now seminal album, Parklife. We're of course talking about Blur, a band that started their days in a club basement as “Seymour” where none other than a young Damien Hirst tipped them for serious longevity and success...

With tracks including ‘Girls & Boys’ and ‘Country House’, Parklife soon cemented itself as one of the 1990s’ most iconic and defining albums, and spent a total 90 weeks in the UK Album Chart. Not to mention becoming the one of the founding albums of the Britpop genre and the subsequent fashion and culture that followed.

So where are they now? Damon Albarn has just released his latest solo effort “Everyday Robots”, putting him firmly back in the limelight whilst Alex James is constantly featured on best dressed lists, presenting and making his own award winning cheese on a farm in the Cotswolds. Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree both remain musically focused.

Today is the day to whip out your old copy or download a new one – just like us in the NL Daily office! Not to mention dipping into the acid wash denim, mom fits and festival style florals. So whilst you’re listening to one of the greatest albums of all time, have a look at some of our key pieces that evoke the spirit of ’94!
