Footage has emerged of Blur frontman Damon Albarn joining a local London pub band for an exclusive rendition of the 1994 Blur hit Parklife. Check out the very cheerful clip in full down below, alongside the song’s iconic music video.
Joining local band The Gents in East London pub The Red Lion on the night of Wednesday, 23rd April, Albarn agreed to join in a slightly more honky-tonk appropriation of Parklife, with pub patrons helping to belt out the tune. Albarn was in town on his own solo tour in support of his new solo album Everyday Robots.
Albarn recently revealed that Blur’s cancelled appearance at the Big Day Out 2014 was “going to be the last Blur show”. He has also clarified comments he made recently, in which he posited that heroin helped him be more creative.
