Re: New release: Live at the BBC

Yeah, I think sadly I'm also in the cynical camp here. My reasoning being if a full BBC live release was planned it would surely be a range of performances across their career, this promo is presumably from the same performance given the track listing. Secondly if there was to be a promo for it, wel...

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

Last night was just incredible. I had heard a rumor that blur were reuniniting, but assumed Graham was still in the states so I just shrugged the idea away. From the angle i was at in the front row, I could see all the artists watching from side stage and saw Damon go up and hug Alex and Dave. Then...

So what was this? I had a look at the site and the majority of questions asked were dire. Not related to the band at all. Fake?
i'm guessing its official, something being done/trialled in a promoting context, but there's no chance the band are actively involved, not based on those answers

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I agree, NM. The songs are certainly no Brexit lecture although based on interviews leading up to the release, that's how the album was portrayed. Maybe management thought that would be a good way to sell albums? No idea, but dumb as hell. This album is an extension of the debut in regards to the f...

Thanks for the help there Lumaka, I'm guessing I won't be the only person getting an error message once you try to put the code in?

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

There's also Mumford & Sons' new album which on British iTunes is even higher than Little Mix (M&S - 1, Little Mix - 3). TGTBTQ debuted at 17th. Oh yeah, that'll sell tons. Prob 40-50,000. Just goes to show, chart positions are as much a factor of what else comes out in the same week as the number ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Yeah I'm a bit disappointed to have shelled out £90 for a pre-release that I wont get to hear within a month of release or before the gigs in December, but in context it's a case of first world problems really. Adding to the whole first world problems theme further I have spotify but wont pay for pr...
