Re: A thread for those disappointed by The Magic Whip

I like Magic Whip, but don't love it. I think some parts of it betray the fact that it's compiled from studio jam sessions. 13 of course was made from jams too, but I think on that album the messiness of jamming was part of the aesthetic of the album. It's little things that bug me - I think some of...

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

Now that is unexpected news, had given up hope for this getting a physical release of any sort! A bit of a shame the extras seem a little lacking at this stage, but perhaps more to come on that front - the quoted 93 minutes is exactly the length of the main documentary. Who knows perhaps we will ge...

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

I wonder if the Blu-ray/DVD will be a Japan-only release?

Re: U2

U2 was the first band I ever really got into. My dad gave me a copy of The Joshua Tree, and I was hooked. That album is perfect for a young teen, I think - it's big, dramatic, yearning, earnest. I heard Bono's voice and thought, "Wow, this guy's really singing with feeling !" (Now I'm more likely to...

Re: Blur in "Kill Your Friends" soundtrack (Nov 6)

That makes sense.

It's a pretty good sountrack, I think.

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

I live right next to an art-house/repertory theatre that showed that Pulp documentary that came out a while back, so I'm really hoping that the Blur doc will play there too.

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

I really liked Courtney Barnett's set, too. Definitely made me want to check out her album. I'm so jealous of everyone who went to the after-party! There were a group of us who waited outside of MSG watching stage equipment being loaded onto trucks in the slim hopes that members of the band would po...

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

My extended thoughts: As a whole, it was a great gig. The band were in high spirits - maybe literally; Damon made a joke about how he smelled like how he usually does at the end of the evening (due to the pungent cloud of green smoke hanging over the crowd). The interplay between the guys was great,...

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

I'm at my hotel now, and I'm worn out! New York is exhausting. I'm going to have to recuperate a bit before lining up.

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

I'll be there, got GA tickets!

First time in NYC, first time at MSG, first time seeing Blur in concert. I'm very excited.

Looks like people will be lining up really early. Maybe I should think of doing the same...

Fallon?
Fallon tapes in NYC. Would make more sense for him to do it at MSG.
If we're sticking to late night hosts, that would mean Conan for Hollywood Bowl?

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

Huh, this is unexpected! If this is the pattern we can expect from Blur in the future (reunion tour -> documentary -> 3-5 year break -> new album -> reunion tour -> documentary -> break), I guess I'm okay with that. Strange to see another doc, though, so soon after No Distance Left to Run and that 4...
