Re: Blur and David Bowie

Pyongyang is very Bowie-que to my ears, Damon sound eerily like him when he goes "feel like I´m floating" at the begining of second verse. Thought I Was Spaceman comes to mind, too. And from Gorillaz catalogue, imagine DB on vocals for Busted and Blue - the very narrative of this song has strong Maj...

Ashamed to say I haven't really given Graham's solo stuff much time. Hearing how much of an impact Happiness in Magazines has had on you all, I'll definitely give it a good listen in the coming days.
Definitely try some more. The Kiss of Morning is my very favourite.

Re: Happiness in Magazines turns 15

I've always liked Graham's solo work, and I find it very difficult to "rank" his albums. I reckon each of them has its own particularities. Maybe you could group the first four (and still, they're quite different from each other), then you could say Happiness and Love Travels form a pair, then The ...

Apparently Graham played Song 2 on his own and Tell It Like It Is made its acoustic debut during the 5 April gig. During the 6 April gig he covered Scott Walker's Lights of Cincinnati https://youtu.be/C5Gflca4LHc
Here´s Song 2 from Mexico:

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

again and again, ladies and gentlemen, see the schedule of upcoming GBQ gigs, it´s pretty busy until late August, with new dates being announced. Graham is definitely (well, likely) up to something later this year with his solo stuff. Even Dave has been talking about solo material due to be out next...

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018-2019

here´s (partial) setlist from SXSW, but I don´t think he has performed much more, given only 1 hour slot during the evening. As for the videos, check out Blur Mex twitter for some audience recording of "Freakin´ Out". https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/graham-coxon/2019/central-presbyterian-church-austi...

Lets start this topic with Graham doing Kinks cover yesterday (even without his guitar, all frontman-y):

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Even Damon's relatively duff solo album hit number 2. That also had slightly worse reviews than Merrie Land. Why didn't these mixed reviews and people streaming music keep that one out of the top 20? Promotion for Everyday Robots started like 4 months before the release and the job was done by Warn...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I wonder how this band will go? They could really go heavy on the festival circuit and do the right appearances and get a good name for themselves going. I was thinking the same. As cool as tiny shows are the band deserve a full tour to open them up to a bigger audience. Especially here in the US. ...
