Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

Just played it again the other day, and it seems to stand up very well in comparison to the original (1991-2003) run of albums.

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Pavlich - interesting point about why doesn't Graham release a 'normal solo album'. And I agree with Doug's assessment of the reasons why.

I do love the sound of Graham's voice on these big melancholic songs.

Re: Papa Roach cover Song 2

Joe Dolan was a very popular show-type singer, esp. in his native Ireland for many years, and in the UK in the late-60s.

Re: First Blur single turns 30

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

3) I'm really not on top of the music press/reviews these days, but I definitely haven't seen much sign of many people under the age of 30 (here in the UK at least) caring, but that might be my small little echo chamber. 4) Gorillaz to me now feels, well 'all played out' if you will. I agree, I kno...

Re: Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

aldamasta - yes, the 'Blur hinterland' covers Blur and all associated projects.
