Country House

Country House


This song, Blur’s first number-one single, reached the top of the charts after the “Battle of Britpop” one of the most renowned music rivalries of the 90’s – Blur vs Oasis- culminated in “Country House” and “Roll with It” being released in the same week.

The music video was directed by Britain’s most successful living artist, Damien Hirst.

In the 1990s, Hirst’s relationship with collector and gallery magnate Charles Saatchi brought him fame. He is mostly known for his gruesome abstract works centering around the theme of death, most of which involve the display of dead animals in various bizarre states of dissection.

It also features comedian Matt Lucas, then of Shooting Stars fame.
