Read the full story of Britain's greatest modern pop band

NME celebrates 20 years since the release of Blur’s era-defining album ‘Parklife’ this week with a special collector’s edition.

Featuring rare archive interviews and photographs spanning the band’s entire career – from the band’s first NME feature back in October 1990 through to the modern day.

Beginning with a look at Blur’s legacy, the issue reassesses each of the band’s albums; profiles on each band member; and also pulls together the very best Blur features from our archive – from declaring themselves as post-grunge heroes to the iconic spat with Oasis.

NME’s Blur collector’s edition will be on newsstands from tomorrow (April 18). Order your print copy here or download the digital edition.
