Blur: Blast Of The Famous International Game Boys

Stuart Maconie, New Musical Express, 28 March 1992

Sometimes you rediscover BLUR, completely flummoxing the music community with their impression of Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd as cruiser-class rock destroyer. STUART MACONIE switches off his Game Boy long enough to report from his perch by the whiskey vending machine.
