Re: What's your Blur story?

I'm from Australia, and I was 12-13 when Country House came out, and that was the first song I ever heard of theirs. I also heard Charmless Man - and I remember distinctly thinking "I do NOT like this band" but I remembered their name because my cousin was a big fangirl. Around the same time, I had ...

Wow, quite a weak field I'd suggest, compared to other numbers.

Re: Think Tank at 12

I remember buying TT and going home and listening it from start to finish in headphones with a beer, in a dark room. Really wish I'd been able to do that with TMW but I'm such an information addict these days that i've been consuming every minor feed. Anyway, 12 years ago I remember being distressed...

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

I pretty much agree with the score, but I thought the review wasn't written particularly well.

Wanky opening paragraph. And no mention of my album highlight, Pyongyang - but that's a personal taste thing I guess.

Re: Lonesome Street - Radio Edit Video (unofficial)

Wow, well done. Surely if Blur's management see this they would prefer to promote it than the other crappy one..!!

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Maybe I'm showing my age here (32 haha) but I find it really hard to listen to Go Out without my ears hurting. There's something very harsh about the guitar sounds.
