Re: Blur Picture Thread

Does anybody got good scans of the The Great Escape tourbook from 1995? There are some rare pictures from the gigs at Cleethorpes and other shows from the Seaside tour. It is hard to find them in a good quality or as original.

Re: Simon Mayo Breakfast Show jingle by Blur, 1993

Mayo seems to be a big Blur supporter. He also presented the 1 FM Roadhow in 1993/94 where Blur performed. Also for 1 FM, does anybody know where or when this photo was taken? Looks like the 1 FM studio and maybe 1995? http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/42259000/jpg/_42259590_blur1995_bbc203b.jpg

Req: Waterbury 1991

Hello, I've just heard that a record of an in-store performance from Blur's first US tour 1991 has surfaced. It should be recorded at Brass City Records in Waterbury in November 1991. The source I've got is Dime, but I don't have an account neither I'm keen in Torrent downloads. Does anybody have a ...

Re: Syd Barrett

Yes, that's interesting. I've just found out that Graham described Berserk as a mesh up of No Good Trying, No Man's Land, Baby Lemonade, and Late Night. Now I'm very animated and I will try to check the albums out soon.

Syd Barrett

I'm an avid Pink Floyd listener since quite a time, but I never had real contact with Syd Barrett as a solo artist. I just read that he was a key influence for Blur. Did they ever mentioned any closer songs or an album? What could be a good start to listen to him?

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

Yes, the Adventure Club Session was the only time they played it properly, beside from a gig in Japan at the end 1993 (if the setlist is right): http://www.vblurpage.com/gigography/1993/1118_onair.htm.

But all in all, it i amazing that he played this one, as it is one of my favorite MLIR tunes.

Re: Damon's voice through the years

As it was mentioned that Damon's voice has changed due to smoking, what's about Graham? I guess that he is a smoker since Blur's career has started. But I think that his voice hasn't changed realy, beside the fact that he's more older now.

Re: Blur Picture Thread

Just a few pictures from the backstage of the Metropol club in Pittsburgh, USA where Blur performed at the 20th September 1997. These old HTML sides got plenty of interesting photo material. http://www.oocities.org/sunsetstrip/cabaret/4266/gc_n_smoggy.JPG http://www.oocities.org/sunsetstrip/cabaret/...

Re: The Beatles Thread

The electronic beats (?) and the synthesizer-press-kit background vocals are very annoying. The other single, Come One To Me, sounds more solid to me, so I hope that he will at least make the sound of the whole LP more like on New a few years ago. This was an acceptable record.

Re: Blur landmarks in London

Thanks! The trip to the UK was great, especially because of the great wheater and the sights. As for Colchester, the countryside around the city in Essex is very great (reminds me a bit of the Chemical World clip). The town itself seems to be a very typicaly British town with a long high street and ...

Re: Blur landmarks in London

I'm going to spend my holidays next week in Essex, so I hope that I can figure out some new locations. There must be The Cups hotel, where the art school crowd used to hang out and the old pub's they visited while they still lived there.

Req: Wanted live recordings

Hello there, I'm looking for two special live recordings of Blur shows at the moment. Both records should exist, but I could not find them so far. The first one is an early 93 show from Washington Hights, Reading from 25th May 1993. It includes several MLIR songs and the soundcheck as well. Second o...
