A "must see" event for any Blur fans
10 January 2010 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Just been to a preview of the new Blur documentary "NO DISTANCE LEFT TO RUN" ... and I must say that I was pretty impressed with it ...

The film directed by Dylan Southern & Will Lovelace traces Blur's history – through their own words. It's a warts and all look at the dynamics of the band, relationships, gigs, successes and failures - right from their very early days up to when they split up and then their triumphant reunion in 2009 when they headlined at Glastonbury.

The Blur band members (Damon Albarn - Singer/Guitar, Graham Coxon · Guitar, Alex James - Bass, and Dave Rowntree - Drums) give exceedingly honest accounts of their feelings towards each other, their emotions, their ambitions, the stories behind the songs / albums, their personal lives, the split-up and the reunion ... all interlaced with great gig footage and behind the scenes "never seen before" footage that really draws you into the inner circle of the make-up of the band

The advent of "Britpop" (which Blur started) is also covered very well as well as the Blur vs. Oasis much media-hyped "Battle of the Bands"

This is a very interesting film - and it's great to get an inner perspective of what motivates / drives bands such as Blur in this "fly on the wall" way - as well as getting the real take on what the creative influences were behind many of their songs / albums

This film is a "must see" event for any Blur fans ...

"NO DISTANCE LEFT TO RUN" comes out on 19th January 2010
