Re: Likelihood of a Blur tour soon.

I heard last year when GC was touring the US to expect a surprise this Fall and maybe see GC back in the US at some point. Not sure if it will come to fruition though.

Re: Happiness in Magazines turns 15

This is one of the best Blur or Blur-member related albums ever released. After 4 solo albums that were decidedly lo-fi, GC blew us all away on this one and even was showing off his guitar playing skills...it's easy to forget now how rare it was for Graham to just flat out shred before this came out...

Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

I think there is a 50-50 chance we get some kind of release this year. Last year when Graham was touring the states, I heard some nuggets about something happening this autumn and the way it was shared I interpreted it as either 1) new blur album or 2) new graham album. But it was super vague for ob...

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018-2019

Any info/updates on the SXSW show? Set lists, videos, etc. I haven't seen or heard much of anything.

Also, anyone know what Graham was working on in Santa Monica?

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

He started Rednecks a little bit in DC, then said he couldn't remember, but definitely rocked it at Bowery. No Rednecks in Brooklyn, but he did move Baby You're Out Of Your Mind to the #3 position in the setlist. He also added the Chas n Dave cover to the beginning of the encore even though it wasn'...

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

Btw, I have an extra ticket to tonight's Bowery Ballroom show if anyone is interested. Just try to catch me on here relatively soon and we can make a plan.

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

Almost the same setlist tonight in DC, but Graham added a song to open the encore before In the Morning in honor of Chas whom he tweeted about passing recently. I didn't recognize the tune, but I believe it was the Chas & Dave song "Ain't No Pleasing You" based on a quick Google of the lyrics I reme...

Re: Orbit's Under the Westway

Um, heck yeah, the Billy Orbit version is way better than the final version ... even Graham admitted somewhere that he secretly likes the version better. It's just loaded with awesome/insane guitars and pianos plus the middle parts are perfect. The only knock is the lyrics are better/finished on the...

Re: Graham gig

I just picked up tix for DC, Philly, and the 2 NYC shows. Should be a solid series of train trips and the first time seeing Graham w/o Blur since he toured the States in 2005 for HIM. Can't wait!

Re: Marks out of 10 for Now Now

Still taking TNN and getting a feel for the album as a whole in so too early to vote, but I am loving Lake Zurich in particular. I was always a big fan of Glitter Freeze and aspects of Zurich remind me of Glitter. Generally positive vibes so far though! I really enjoy all of TMW, ER, and Humanz. Pro...

Re: Is Think Tank an underrated masterpiece?

am i the only one who don't hate crazy beat ? yes, it's weakest track on tt, but worst song from blur discography ? NO WAY I concur, Blur definitely has worse songs than Crazy Beat...Badgeman Brown, Berserk, Garden Central, the cover of Substitute, others I can't think of right now. I think Crazy B...

Re: Is Think Tank an underrated masterpiece?

On the Way to the Club is the best song on the album what are you talking about We'll have to disagree on that one! I would rate Out of Time, BIYL, Sweet Song, Good Song, and Ambulance higher. For what it's worth, I wasn't criticizing the song so much as as I was the broader sequence of songs in th...

Re: Is Think Tank an underrated masterpiece?

I disagree with a lot of blurop4's comment but the one that strikes out the most is "there's nothing to dance to here". Uh?? Gene by Gene? Bowls Club? Crazy Beat (yes)? even the "mid-tempo" shockers OTWTCB and Brothers and Sisters, both of which have a slightly smoky funk thing going on. I think th...
