Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

Can't wait rich! I too hope Damon will have worked out the kinks by then. Wonder when (or if) he will actually record it, and will it just be a live recording?

And a documentary would be lovely, I agree daii. Damon's home in Iceland looks beautiful, it would make for a perfect culture show episode!

Re: New track from Gorillaz to premiere on BBC Radio 1 this Thursday

I love the snippet Gorillaz posted today. Slaves rock so hard. And I think the idea of releasing it over the course of the year is really interesting. Maybe genius!

Must say, I’ve no idea what Damon and Jamie have up their sleeves! https://youtu.be/OfqJkOVrY2E

Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

I didn't realize so many people (maybe mostly journalists that don't follow Gorillaz too closely) expected this to be so focused on the animation side. Based on reviews, I do think it's a bit of a bummer Jamie doesn't receive more air time - that's a bit odd. But Jamie has repeatedly said a Gorillaz...

Late to replying on this (been off the forum for a bit during final exams and all that), but it's actually a nice cover they've done.

Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

It's so odd that it isn't playing in quite a few European countries, and in no South American countries! Denholm has said that fans in those countries that are unable to see it will be able to see it eventually... so I guess it will either be released on DVD/blu-ray and/or on a streaming platform. H...

Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

Good prediction rich :lol: I can totally see that happening. I bought tickets today! So glad this is getting such a large release. I am very excited, and even though we got a trailer today (more like a teaser trailer though, don't ya think?), I don't know much of what to expect. All I know is, the f...

I wonder when we’ll get a trailer. Surely soon, I’d think.

Re: "The End of the F***ing World" - full soundtrack album

Listening to it now (iTunes download). So far, lots of similarities to the first soundtrack. I haven't heard anything that really jumps out like "She Left the Light On" or "Walking All Day", but still working my way through it. Early impressions are it's solid with a lot of variety in style and it ...

Re: Dr Dee, underappreciated?

I do think it could be a bit underappreciated. I think Apple Carts and O Spirit Animate Us are amazing tunes. Very haunting and beautiful. However, I am not sure I consider it a true solo album, per se, as I view Everyday Robots as Damon's official solo debut. Of course, there is an argument for Dr....

Chemical World is class, agree with everything else though :D
Yes! Chemical World is one of my favorite blur song. Timeless riff, classic pop tune, and a fun music video for it.

And Bang may be a shit single... but I still really like it :P

Re: time for a blur career spanning best of...

Perhaps after a new blur album it would be worth making a new one. But yeah, for now Midlife and the Best of have it pretty covered. I'd want a compilation album that (similar to Midlife) didn't just include singles.

Also, welcome to the forum redsalmon :)

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Really love that version. Damon and his melodica with slow dub beats is something I love a lot about the early days of Gorillaz. Paul told rich when we met him that he was trying to get it on the setlist - looks like it finally worked! I wish this tour weren't coming to an end so soon. They are so s...

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

I would be sooo down for that. I know Parklife is the definitive, focused masterpiece out of the 2, but I actually find TGE much more intriguing and the one I go back to more. Parklife is more consistent but I prefer TGE'S best moments over parklife's. Yeah, that's actually a really cool thought. S...

Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

I'm so confused by this project. Damon hasn't even gotten closed to finishing it yet (maybe hasn't even written it at all??) yet it's already selling out some seemingly prestigious venues. No doubt Damon has a big draw, and I trust him and his crazy time management - especially after getting TNN and...
