Blur – The Artist
Blur are an English rock band. Formed in London in 1988, the group consists of singer Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree. Blur’s debut album Leisure (1991) incorporated the sounds of Madchester and shoegazing. Following a stylistic change influenced by English guitar pop groups such as the Kinks, the Beatles and XTC, Blur released Modern Life Is Rubbish (1993), Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995). As a result, the band helped to popularise the Britpop genre and achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided by a chart battle with rival band Oasis in 1995 dubbed “The Battle of Britpop”.
Bang – The Song
‘Bang’ is a song by English band Blur, released 1991 as the third single from their debut album Leisure. It reached number 24 in the UK Singles Chart. Its disappointing performance relative to previous single “There’s No Other Way” marked the end of Blur’s initial period of popularity. The song has been all but disowned by the band, who claim it was written in less than 15 minutes in response to record company demands for another bankable single.
The Male Chicken – The Shape
This record is modelled into the silhouette of male chicken inspired by the cockerel on the record sleeve. A cock or rooster is the adult male chicken, Gallus gallus domesticus. A younger male may be called a cockerel. There are numerous cultural references to cocks and cockerels, in myth, folklore and religion, in language and in literature. Cockerels are probably best know for their loud crowing which they notoriously do at daybreak making them unpopular birds in built-up areas. Cockerels almost always start crowing before four months of age. Although it is possible for a hen to crow as well, crowing is one of the clearest signs of being a cockerel. The Chicken has a distinctive comb on the top of its head and under the beak are two more fleshy lobes of skin, one on each side. These are called the wattles. They’re larger in males, and their size and shape differ according to breed. The wattles are usually red, although in some breeds, they can be blue, maroon, black, or other colours.
