So the seminal Britpop album Parklife by Blur turned 20 on Friday. To celebrate the occasion – or just for some spur-of-the-moment fun while grabbing a pint – frontman Damon Albarn decided to surprise the patrons of an East London pub by singing the title track with the bar’s house band.

Albarn was in the area practicing for a gig – his solo album, Everyday Robots, drops April 28 – when he stopped by the Red Lion. The Gents serve as backing band, with astounded pub-goers contributing a raucous chorus. Check it out:
