(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)
Album Title: Modern life is rubbish
Year released: 1993
Year reissued: 2012
Details: 2 of 5 in Blur 21, anniversary box set, black vinyl, 180 gram, 2 x LP, Gatefold sleeve
The skinny: Blur found their feet and their voice on their sophomore record, painting a picture of British life in a sound that definitely not American. It’s here, along with Suede’s self-titled release, that we find the roots of Britpop.
Standout track: “Chemical world”
