Re: Blur record sales update

Here you go, the awards for all the Blur singles in the UK along with the date they were released and the date they awarded that level. Some of the dates look completely wrong but don't blame me, it''s just a cut and paste :) Blur Country House Food Platinum Single 25.08.2017 15.11.2004 Blur Country...

Re: B-Roads

I've always found it rich indeed that the few who've had access have been so sanctimonious about "protecting the band's reputation" and "honoring the band's wishes" -- but only after watching it themselves, and in some cases (cough, Black Book) even directly profiting off of it. Well, I hope they f...

Re: Error in Tender

I've always wondered about this. Wouldn't the vocals be a separate track, meaning that the only reason it's there is an oversight during editing?

Re: What is this album version?

Well, I take my hat off to you PaulG - I spent ages searching all variations I could find, including 'priarity' records itself, and could not find anything on it at all, hence joining the forum. That all makes sense now, had to be unofficial, didn't it? Really appreciate you coming back, and so qui...

Re: What is this album version?

According to Discogs they're an Asian label releasing unofficial CDs

I've seen a lot like this on my travels in China.

Re: Most Oasis sounding Blur song?

I remember reading a pre-rivalry interview somewhere with Damon saying "She's So High" sounds like an Oasis song.

Re: alex james in trouble!

Well, I´m not British, but let me say that some reactions under Alex tweet are just beyond ridiculous. It's the state of the UK generally at the moment, I'm afraid. All room for discourse, discussion & debate has gone, with people on every side choosing to slinging mud instead. I can't remember a t...

Re: Doctor Who

You Are Not Alone :) My favourite Doctor is Patrick Troughton, though I also have a lot of love for Hartnell, Davison, Colin Baker, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and Matt Smith. I grew up on the classic series and have watched it for as long as I can remember. I was brought up on Tom Baker duri...

Re: Think Tank instrumentals promo CD

I don't know what the deal is with this CD. I've seen these pop up on ebay a number of times over the past 3-4 years, but nothing before that. I've never seen it appear on any kind of Blur discography.

Re: What pisses you off at the moment?

Great to see a few others on here with rescue pets :) We've had three difficult evenings with our youngest dog. She's a rescue greyhound and has enough issues as it is - she was a mess when rescued and we really weren't sure she was even going to survive. She's now trembling & panting as soon as it ...

Re: What pisses you off at the moment?

Fireworks. Bonfire night is a thing of the past; it's now bonfire season. My two rescue dogs are absolutely petrified of fireworks and can't calm down or settle - it's a horrible thing to see. So far they've been pretty sporadic, but it's now ramping up. We've some new medication to try this year wh...

Re: Blur on the south bank show

One thing to be aware of... the Sky Arts broadcast is an edited down version of the original ITV broadcast. The ITV version is around 48 minutes, but I can't remember what the Sky Arts version is.

Re: What pisses you off at the moment?

I'm almost certainly not the first to say this, but I'm throwing the NRA out there. Why on earth is it in America that the right to own a gun is seen as a more important right than the right not be shot? I love America wholeheartedly having lived there for 9 months and gone back on holiday/vacation...

Nice, Paul! Can you post a pic of the Popscene one? I'd love to see.
I'll have a root around over the next week or two to see if I can find it. :)
Okay great. I’m sitting here waiting and hitting refresh. :P
