Band Name Origins:

  • Blur were originally called Seymour, but the record company people thought they could never make it with that name so they had to come up with a new one. After a lot of hard thinking they chose Blur just because it sounded as if the record company people might like it, and they did. Submitted by: easy
  • The band was originally called Seymour, named for a character from a series of short stories by George Orwell. When signed by their label they were informed that Seymour was a stupid name, so a list of potential names was drawn up. Blur was chosen ahead of other candidates such as Sensitize, Whirlpool, and The Shining Path. Submitted by: Hard Harry

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Alex's Song"
The sessions for the End of a Century B-sides must of been really obscure, because they are humours. Alex's Song has high pitch "blade like" vocals. Kind of like a chipmunk song, as people keep calling songs with high pitch vocals.
Submitted by: Lee

Hidden Tracks:

"Me, White Noise"
On the CD rewind back from track 1 into the pregap to -6:50 and then take your finger of the rewind button. You now get to listen to 7 minutes of a drunk Phil Daniels singing about looking at a wall which tells you to f*** off because it isn't a mirror, whooshing off in an underground train, people going in the room for a pair of marraccas and how everybody kicks a football.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

Music With a Warning Label:

"The Great Escape"
In the booklet, there is a picture of Neuschwanstein Castle (the same photo as on the Country House single cover) and underneath this photo it says "Warning: Private Property". This doesn't mean anything as such and is just a quirk in the packaging.
