Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

What a fantastic night that was last night at the Palladium. Took a few photos of the night. I'll post later.
Managed to get a couple of selfies with Damon. He was in great spirits.

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

I remember Damon forgetting what b side "The Man Who Left Himself." when performing it live at the Albert Hall.
I reckon they played Clover during rehearsals/sound check during the 94 tour and decided to veto it.
Saw them a couple of times in 94. Deffo don't remember it being played.

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

I do hope this progress into something later in the year or 2020. Always gives me a buzz to see the lads back together again.

Re: The return of SLEEPER!

Sadly couldn't make it. Work got in the way. But received the signed LP and single. Really enjoying the record. A few clichés, but there are great standout tracks too. Car into the sea and the title track are my favourites. Very well produced by Stephen Street. 7/10 from me Also Looks like the Moder...

RIP Keith Flint

Sad day.succumbed to suicide. Saw him and the band twice back in the day. An absolute brilliant frontman. Knebworth '96 was a great memory https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/keith-flint-dead-prodigy-legend-dies-at-49/ar-BBUlABN?li=BBoPRmx&OCID=ansmsnnews11 R.I.P Keith https://m.youtube.com/watch?...

Seeing as it's the 25th anniversary of parklife in April.

Re: Blur-related attractions in London?

After seeing the Hyde Park Parklife bench in the "How Parklife came to be" thread, I thought I'd revive this old thread and share my list of "blur to-do's" and see if anyone had any new/updated thoughts. I've already been by Studio 13 a few times (lucked out with my airbnb, it was only a 2 minute w...

Re: How did Parklife come to be?

OK - so I dug out my copy of the Parklive 4xCD/DVD book and had a look in there for any mention of the Parklife/Hyde park connection - and - nothing... By the way, the CD book cover (and all the associated event artwork) always struck me as a bit weird. The rustic image behind Britannia sitting on ...

Re: How did Parklife come to be?

also I think part of the album was inspired with Damon reading Martin Amis novel London Fields back in 1993.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Predictably, the hype for the album (and band) has significantly dropped since it was released. Zero promotion, just announcements for shows. Just like post-Humanz and post-The Now Now. Same tactics used for this album yet Damon retains the same management. Despicable. Totally agree. If it wasn't f...
