That looks very cool! :) Is there a backstory or info where it was taken?

Sadly no. It can be Japan (and I think it was - Blur played there in early 1992 and Damon was wearing this weird jacket :-)), it can be UK (photographer is Japanese but he worked a lot in the UK, shooting festivals and so on, also in 1992).

Hi, for my first post here I just wanted to share these terrible-quality photos, but I can safely say they haven't been seen before. I just found them in a box in my loft - I took them at Oscar's in Clacton in 1995. I obviously sneaked in a camera which I rarely did to gigs back then. I remember the gig was way too crowded for the small viewing area but it was a great night!

Thank you so much for sharing!!! I've always been fascinated by their seaside tour in 1995 but there's just so little info available, so thank you for these beautiful photos!

I don't remember much about this gig either although I found out about it (and got tickets) because Dave Rowntree posted about it on alt.music.blur! I'd been online about a year and getting inside information on the internet was extremely exciting!

That's so cool! Ahh the early days of the internet.
