Re: Graham in the studio with Duran Duran...

The glossiness surrounding the 'Rio' album (videos, fashions etc) overshadowed the fact that it was a very good album. Exactly now time has past the songs shine at how good they were, unlike the Culture Club's, Wham etc.... Yes Secret Oktober another from the Seven And The Ragged sessions, brillian...

Re: Graham in the studio with Duran Duran...

Rediscovered Duran Duran the last few weeks, such a brilliant band live and in the studio. Seven And The Ragged Tiger a fantastic album and hopefully Graham is going to be the type of influence that the guitarist Andy Taylor made to them as when he is not with them they are never as good.

Re: Graham in the studio with Duran Duran...

Great stuff, Duran Duran always made great tunes...with the way Damon has gone im glad he isn't making any new Blur, no doubt he would politicise it and make it duller than the last Good The Bad..album.

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

Damon didn't do any Parklife 25th anniversary gigs because of Brexit, as didn't want to celebrate Britishness with Brexit One more thing to love this guy for, imho. Ordered the vinyl and a red parklife tote (as if I needed another tote, I am such a merchandise victim) and am still getting my hopes ...

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

Blur are/is and always will be 100x better than Gorillaz/Queen/Solo or anything else he does, the Coxon magic mixed with Albarn has been wasted for far too many years.

His Brexit ramblings on tour with The Good The Bad...scrap it, Blur please!

Re: France yellow vest protests

Yes finally some proper coverage after this has been happening every weekend all over France since November! but the biggest riots/protests in Paris. It's the media bias that is a disgrace, if this was a large city in the USA with protests against Trump it would have been top news every week since N...

Re: Talk Talk Thread

Good points Sledge Hammer - I also think their music was at the wrong time in the later 80s. The melodic, thoughtful songs would have fitted in better with e.g. the mid 90s-early 2000s. Yes and I thank Talk Talk leading me onto Blur and the indie scene as I bought the best of Talk Talk in 1990 (my ...

Re: general blur thread

I see all those Good The Bad...gigs listed and just think what a waste of Blur, all the sub par Gorillaz stuff over the last few years aswell, and here is the one of the best combos in music history - Albarn/Coxon, the perfect mix. Damon never put 100% into The Magic Whip, a jam and Graham did the w...
