Alex James, Damon Albarn, Dave Rowntree and Graham Coxton formed the band Blur in 1989. Both Alex James and Graham Coxon were art students at Goldsmith's College, London and have maintained contact with their fellow YBA artists. Their chart-topping album Parklife (1994) announced the band's leading position in the BritPop movement and in 1995 Blur won five Brit awards. Further albums The Great Escape (1995), Blur (1997), 13 (1999) and Blur: the best of (2000) followed.
