It was a summer to remember.
Regardless of your opinion on the Olympics, on their effect (or lack thereof) on the surrounding area, the sheer spectacle of the sporting event was difficult not to get drawn up in. Producing countless heroes from every walk of life, the games ended with an enormous concert in Hyde Park.
New Order and The Specials warmed up the crowd, before Blur took to the stage for what - at the time - was mooted as their final concert. Producing a spellbinding performance, the set is due to be the subject of a new 5 disc box set.
By way of a preview, Blur have just posted the video for 'Under The Westway'. A brand new track released earlier this year, its stirring McCartney-esque structure allowed Damon Albarn's voice full rein to tease every emotion possible out of the crowd. A
very special moment, you can watch it now.
