Blur’s Modern Life is 20: Live in Köln, 1993

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of Blur’s seminal album, Modern Life Is Rubbish, enjoy this full concert from Köln Music Hall in Germany. The televised concert is from 16 June, 1993 and mostly features songs from the album. There’s a lot of on-stage wackiness that will keep you entertained along with the great setlist. The early performance of ‘Parklife’ is actually one of the best I’ve seen. It’s obviously at a point where the song hasn’t been totally fleshed out, so it’s a bit shambolic but so infectiously fun.

So get ready to… Watch Damon jump around the stage like a monkey with a poor center of gravity! Cringe as Damon’s attempts at German get no response from the audience! Watch Damon actually GOOSESTEP on a stage in Germany!? Just watch!

And, if you watch, here’s what you’ll see:

Intermission / Popscene
Come Together
Colin Zeal
She’s So High
Sunday Sunday
Oily Water
Commercial Break
There’s No Other Way
Chemical World
For Tomorrow

Stay tuned for another Modern Life-era concert and a run-down of some of the best b-sides and videos that resulted from the album!
