Re: Blur and Record Store Day

I don't mind them eschewing Record Store Day. Most of the releases are novelty or irrelevant. Ultimately if you want any album (bar 13?) on vinyl, you can get it. No one needs a Parklife 10" in the shape of the beer coaster that sounds like forks on the side of a naked Heinz tin. I also actually lik...

Re: Alex James' "The Big Feastival" - has anybody attended?

Holy shit, he looks fucking terrible. Looks like he's had a bit of plastic surgery done. You gotta hand it to Damon, and even guys like Thom Yorke and the Gallaghers: they're all in pretty good nick for blokes in their 50s. They aren't Brad Pitt, but who is? They're all pretty thin and know how to d...

Re: How To Dress like Damon Albarn

I reckon he wears 501s, not the 511/513 style Levi's skinny jeans.

He likes suede DBs too but also Docs, especially those mid-ankle sort of ones. Doesn't mind a sneaker either.

Dude dresses pretty cool while still not being 50-pretending-to-be-25.

Re: How To Dress like Damon Albarn

It's quite easy.

He follows pretty good trends and likes simple stuff.

I'd suggest brands like Carhartt and general classic, vintage clothes from sportswear brands: Nike, adidas.

Ringer tees are big for him, he dresses in a sort of baggy silhouette too.

He likes second-tier sports brands too.

Re: the holy grail...

No way this went for anywhere close to 400 quid; I've never even seen this artwork and I'm a poindexter enough to be on a Blur forum in the 2020s. The Paris Hilton CD single is going for 1000 USD and I don't even know what Banksy had to do it with it, but something. I can imagine that was far more p...

Re: blur|banksy...

I still reckon the cover for Think Tank is so so cringey, fuckin scuba masks and kissing? Yeah - but like so many of Damon's themes, weirdly prescient :shock: See also - recycling/climate change mitigation, Trump, isolation etc etc :) I studied English at art school. I know how to wank on and ponti...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Why can't he just put out a normal solo album? All this soundtrack, shitey superband, and novelty stuff does is uninspire me.

Fans who just want unending complimentary words and positivity shit me; they owe us nothing but we're allowed to think their output or decisions are shit.

Re: Blur have vague plans on a new reunion - The Times Oct 2020

What lazy and over-inspired writing that is there.

Cliche headline that's done to fuckin death? Yep.

'Wow, you know this guy's in two huge bands?!' O yah.

Naming individual members of the act to instil some sort of connotation of gang camaraderie? Unfortunately.

Re: Damon Albarn hints at future Gorillaz collab with Paul McCartney

It's a bit like football, two lumps of uber talent is barely a guarantee of success. Even more so when they're from distinctly different places, times, and are chucked together later on.

According to the Select articles, they have recorded things while under the influence of something. Even the vocals to To The End!

This was Dave's default for most of the comedown shows.
