Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

That's a matter of opinion. The Graham influence is clearly missing and it suffers for it. Think Tank is a good album, but not a "blur" album. It's a "Blur" album as any Blur album is. I really can't stand this point of view. Just because a member is missing doesn't make the contribution of the rem...

Yet Think Tank is a fantastic album.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

I agree with you TracyJosh. They are perfect together. But I think what others in this thread meant by collaboration is Humanz/Song Machine style collaboration. Playing music with all kinds of musicians from all over the world. That seems to be what Damon has been into for the last 15 years, not pla...

"it is heartbreakingly criminal that the potential of the musical partnership that is Damon and Graham has lain largely dormant for the last 20 years...

Re: Tony Allen on Damon's 'travel album' (this year) ...

Song Machine doesn't really "travel" right? I'm thinking TNTFMPTSF(are we really abbreviating it like this?) but it doesn't have dates in the US. And Le Vol du Boli is a Paris thing. More Africa Express maybe?

Thanks loveinthe90s - so it's Chinese, not Korean I guess?
I think so, since the band name "blur 布勒" on the album cover is also in Chinese.

Re: Graham in LA ...

That interview is almost identical to a lot of previous ones: living in LA, doing soundtracks, having a lot of solo stuff including an album from A+E era to be released, blabla. He's been talking about releasing new solo material since the end of 2017 though. And he's not really "spending a lot of t...

Re: for sale: Graham Coxon signature Fender Telecaster

Oh my, I always dream to have one. Would love to have it, and I'm even in the Netherlands right now, but it's still beyond what I can afford as a poor student... Hope it ends up in really good hands!

Re: The Great Escape

If only TGE could have sounded more like the punkiness of the Dublin Castle gig of 95, but in saying that we had the self titled 2 years later. I can't be too gready. Wait, there's a recording of Dublin Castle 1995? I don't know if there's a full show as I never heard it. I purchased a bootleg CD a...

Re: Blur Picture Thread

I don't remember much about this gig either although I found out about it (and got tickets) because Dave Rowntree posted about it on alt.music.blur! I'd been online about a year and getting inside information on the internet was extremely exciting! That's so cool! Ahh the early days of the internet.

Re: Blur Picture Thread

Hi, for my first post here I just wanted to share these terrible-quality photos, but I can safely say they haven't been seen before. I just found them in a box in my loft - I took them at Oscar's in Clacton in 1995. I obviously sneaked in a camera which I rarely did to gigs back then. I remember th...
