Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

Yes, just watched and pretty average. Got bored fairly quickly and was just left wondering....why?

No real narrative, some stuff hard to hear and nothing about the tour struck me as particularly interesting.

Some good images and flashes of live stuff but it struck me as a bit directionless.

Re: Are Gorillaz going to affect Blur?

I reckon there will be no more blur action for a few years now. But we've had a pretty good run since 2009, with gigs, the 21 box set and the new album and tour.

I would be quite happy if there was another TGTBATQ album. Loved the first one.

Re: Gig: Melbourne, 28 July

It was great. Of course my preferred setlist would not get a look in but overall great gig and they seemed to enjoy it. Sounded great from where I was. Love closing my eyes at these gigs and just listening to these wonderful songs being played live.

Re: Gig: Melbourne, 28 July

Yep, I'll be there. Can't wait. Just printed my tickets and Watching No Distance Left to Run. Would love to meet the lads but I guess it's hard and to be honest I'm a bit to old to be hanging around like a bad smell in the hope of meeting them. Well maybe too lazy anyway. Anyways, hope you all have ...

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Fantastic time was had last night! We got in about 1. had eats and a few beers and headed off to the front, I enjoyed the support too(maybe something in the beer!) and thought the day went really quickly! I was near to the front and just missed out those ice creams handed out by Damon. I really was...

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

I had a great time last night. No complaints from me about the set list. Let's face it, it was always going to be a pretty conservative set list at HP. I just threw myself into it and enjoyed it for what it was. It's not like I dislike any Blur songs, just of case of 'fantasy land what I really wan...

I agree. Only the rusted on fans are really going to be bothered watching it and it is so far in the past now that it simply doesn't matter

Re: What's your Blur story?

Late one night in New Zealand I saw Girls and Boys and thought it was great track but blur would be another hit wonder. I remember thinking that the guy wasn't a great singer. Role on a few months and I hear Charmless Man. From there I buy TGE, Parklife and the rest. Within 6 months I'm a member of ...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Haha I'm actually in Canberra! Planning to bus it to Sydney and back for the Saturday gig, then fly to Melbourne for the Tuesday, Perth for the Thursday, and back to Canberra. One of the great things about Canberra is that no bands ever come here, so it makes flying around the country to see one I ...

Re: Magic Whip - song by song impressions

Love the record overall, though Ong Ong sounds a bit lazy for mine and Ice Cream Man and New World Towers are a little bit lower in quality than the others.

Love Thought I was a Spaceman and I Broadcast.

A great effort in 5 days and a few touch ups though - brilliant

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I think generally that album sales are so low now that charting well really means very little. No doubt it will sell 300k or so copies eventually but sadly it seems Spotify etc have taken over.

Re: Blur on The Graham Norton Show, April 24

People can't help when they're born. Almost every band/artist has been influenced in some way or another by the Beatles..the majority not being around to see them live. Still count as fans Yep I burst into tears at Paul McCartney in LA last year - was wonderful though I was -8 when the Beatles brok...

Re: Your 'Magic Whip' Experience

Just listened to it start to finish - overall I love it. A couple of songs I can give it take but overall a fine effort for a 5 days heist

Sounds like blur but something new and not too much like a Damon solo adventure.

Now role on 28 July in Melbourne
