In the country...

So, last night[personal profile] splix  apparantly watched Trainspotting 2 and promptly declared it '90s night.

Thus inspired, I spent last night listening to Blur, Travis and Pulp. :D

I've had a soft spot for Blur since the Parklife album: Damon Albarn owned a dog he used to race at Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium and my Dad used to go to the 'Stow two or three times a week back in the '90s. And on the back cover, he's visible in the crowd behind the band.

And since Dad had a heart attack followed by a stress-induced nervous breakdown and had to give up work back in 1992, Country House always spoke to me (when it came out, Dad *was*, "knocking back Prozac"). I was definitely a Blur-fan in the Blur vs Oasis battles.

Only, who d'you think those lyrics make me think about *now*? ("I'm a professional cynic, but my heart's not in it/ I'm paying the price of living life at the limit")
