Watch: Blur Perform ‘Caramel’, ‘Young & Lovely’ At BBC

The band air some live rarities in a pair of BBC Radio performances.

Yesterday (July 31st), Blur kicked off their summer live commitments with a couple of sets at the BBC, both of which are now available to stream online.

The band started with a short set for BBC 6Music (see above), featuring the debut live performance of ‘13’ stand-out ‘Caramel’ and a first airing since 1999 (and only second ever) for b-side ‘Young & Lovely’.

They followed that up with a performance for BBC Radio 2, which included the first showing since 1992 of early b-side Mr. Briggs. You can check that out here.
