Reception

In his review for Louder Than War, Matt Mead states: "The single "London England" became a dancefloor classic in the 1990s, which I’m sure would have influenced Albarn, Coxon, Rowntree and James to ask the fabric four to support Blur at their ground breaking Alexandra Palace concert in 1994".[1]
