Hahaha, Green Jelly... I remember them


I used to love that band when I was a young lad. Green Jello has more ass-kickin' in their little pinkies than the Verve and Blur have in their entire bodies. B-)


Maynard was the guy saying little pig little pig and I believe Danny Carey played drums at times for them

Went with The Verve based merely on principle.


Woooo hoooooo


Just out of interest, what was considered the 'one hit' on both counts?

I would argue "Bitter Sweet Symphony" from The Verve and "Song 2" from Blur (the woo hoo song). Arguably, Blur had other hits in the United States, but I'm not sure anything charted significantly. Both bands are HUGE in Britain.

I think "Country House" got some airplay here, so I may have overextended on Blur being a one-hit wonder, but The Verve certainly is.

A Northern Soul really isn't a bad album by the Verve, I'm not saying they are great or anything, but they are good, and certainly good enough to take out Blur in my book.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

Blur's Parklife album is one of the most underappreciated albums to come out of the mid-90's.

Well, were huge in Britain. I thought those would be the two, though neither of them were the respective biggest hits here (Country House and Drugs Don't Work fwiw).
