  • After a difficult 1992 US tour playing to ungrateful grunge fans, the members of Blur were homesick, and frontman Damon Albarn often found solace in the music of The Kinks along the way. That band's Anglo-centric approach inspired MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH, which saw Blur turn away from the Madchester style of their debut and return to the classic British songcraft of the '60s

    Released 25 years ago today, the album was "a weird combination of quiet , nostalgic-sounding melodies and chord progressions with these weird, biting lyrics about England as it was then", to quote Albarn.

    With indelible singles like "For Tomorrow" and "Chemical World," it became a success, and MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH was the first step on a path that would take Blur to the top of British rock.
