live at the bbc
Featuring ‘Girls & Boys’, ‘Jubilee’, ‘Trouble In The Message Centre’ and ‘Lot 105’, these tip-top live sessions have been revived from a Mark Radcliffe Radio 1 session, recorded at the BBC in Manchester on 7th March 1994, just weeks ahead of Parklife’s release on 25th April.
Their third studio reached #1 on the UK album charts and garnering four smash hit singles ‘Girls & Boys’, ‘End of a Century’, ‘Parklife’ and ‘To the End’. Described as “an epoch-defining record” (AllMusic) which “captured the mid-'90s zeitgeist” (BBC), the album explores themes of British life and identity, securing a cultural significance that endures to this day. ‘Parklife’ was nominated for the 1994 Mercury Music Prize and 1995 saw blur take home four BRIT Awards, including Best British Album.
