Blur: Blast Of The Famous International Game Boys

Stuart Maconie, New Musical Express, 28 March 1992

It's not all Calpis Walter, Pocari Sweat and smoking Keiths while on a rock 'n' roll jaunt in Japan, y'know. 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.
