Reiss Loves: Blur 21

13.08.12

With all things British and a Nineties revival in full swing, it couldn't be a better time for any band of the era to take a look back at the moments which defined them. One of our favourite bands of the time, and certainly the one which most succinctly summed up the Britpop feeling in London was Blur. We didn't get tickets to their Hyde Park concert last night, so instead made our way to Shoreditch for our Britpop fix.

Blur 21: The Exhibiton is at London Newcastle Project Space in Shoreditch and is devoted to the Britpop legends.

Twenty one years after the release of their debut album Leisure, Damon Albarn, already acknowledged as a music genius of epic proportion, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree are showcasing a collection of rare and previously unseen photography to mark the release of their twenty one disc box set.

Presented by Spotify and EMI this white walled exhibition land marks their legacy and confirms them as a Brit Pop sensation of godlike status.

For those who love Blur, Britpop and the Nineties, it's a must-see.

Blur 21: The Exhibition  runs until August 14th (so hurry) at London Newcastle Project Space, Shoreditch. It's FREE and open tonight and tomorrow until 8pm.

Blur 21: The Box is out now.
