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

It is good to have both Graham and Damon on the 6 music playlist!

Hard to avoid comparing the two… they’re obviously very different… but I do find myself playing Yoga Town a lot more

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine Tour 2020-2022

Unbelievable show. Best Gorillaz set I've been to. And something about being back with that many people with loud, live music - I won't forget last night in a hurry.

My favourite comment there is 'Noel Gallager is the Noddy Holder to Albarn's Bowie.'

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

'Yoga Town' is .... not what I was expecting from this project. It's a catchy, poppy gem. Love it

Premiered on Lamacq today - you can check it out on BBC Sounds (2 hours in)

Looks like its definitely all go for the O2 show now all restrictions will be lifted in 2 weeks.
Should be a very emotional celebration after 18 months of no gigs.
Has anyone recieved their tickets yet?
Looks like it is the O2's first gig as well

Can't wait! (No tickets received yet)

Feels like a distant relative of Souk Eye. It's great!

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

I was very surprised at how long the set was compared to the other acts It was a very very good performance. Obviously Twitter was full of people saying it was depressing etc, and perhaps he could have front loaded it with at least one 'well known' song (End of a Century could have had a great arran...

Re: Blur and Record Store Day

There's still think tank session tracks that have never been given the light of day that I'm desperate to hear Hm, they did publish Nutter , Piano and Avoid The Traffic ... If you consider those were amongst the best of what they could find left in the Think Tank sessions, well... :roll: I don't be...

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

Fascinating choice of project to use... this is quite a mass-market stream for a bit of a niche performance by Damon. Gorillaz would probably have been a much better choice

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Took them long enough!

Wonder if this means they are thinking about pushing it for radio play - clearly the strongest radio-friendly song on the album

Re: Girls and Boys reaches 100 million milestone on Spotify

On Melancholy Hill originally was meant to be a TGTBTQ song Thanks - didn't know this - but now I can hear how Paul's stuttering dubby base would have worked wonderfully with this track 🙂 They played it in 2011 at Coronet, London. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crkw9pDHwzg http://vblurpage.com/gig...

Re: Girls and Boys reaches 100 million milestone on Spotify

Surprised to see ghost ship up there, I mean I love the song but is weird that it has more streams than the universal I think a theory I saw before was the algorithm heavily pushing it to Gorillaz fans, which does make sense. But agree it looks so weird to see it that high up. Surely a certain incl...
