BLUR : The Universal
With the upcoming release of the Blur 21 box set and new single “Under The Westway”, I thought it’d be a good time to revisit one of their best singles (and in my opinion, one of the best singles of the 1990s): “The Universal”. I first saw this clip on a very fuzzy Rage telecast. Even through the bad TV reception, I could tell this was a fantastic clip. Released in 1995 and reaching the UK top 5, the single did not fare as well In Australia. I remember seeing Molly Meldrum on his Humdrum segment predicting that this would be a big hit, then scratching his head a while later when it wasn’t!
