Re: Damon's new (2021) mullet

Given the mullet’s brief run, does anyone think Damon read this thread and got the message?

Re: The Great Escape = the code for life

It was a year ago that I simply stated that I called my lake camp “The Great Escape” as homage to the eponymous Blur album. I like diving off my boat like the album cover. I know pavlich got triggered and went nutballs on me…it’s all good. I want you all to find the English soccer bands version of “...

The Damon mullet is a “strong pass” from me.

The Cowboy Song

Most “Blur” Blur song ever……am I right?

Re: Babies Go Blur....

What’s also cool is that the group uses the same wind instrument throughout the album that Damon uses in songs like “tomorrow comes today” and “sunset coming on”.

It reminds me of, and I suspect is heavily 'influenced' by, Rockabye Baby:

Re: the Good, the Bad & the Queen - the end?

Completely agree with you. Merrie land is a brilliant album and my fave of the two.....didn’t like it at first listen. My experiences with listening to both albums though was juxtaposed. The first album I loved right away and like it more years later. The first time I listened to merrie land I loved...

Re: Amazing Story... need advice

Lol...I needed to read the fine print! I thought this story was recent as well!

I was wondering why Alex would even consider an attempt to travel to Florida during this time!

Re: Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

Even if Blur is my favorite thing and the first musical side of damon I discovered, I consider myself an Damon fan. I love gorillaz, tgtbtq, and his solo stuff. I wish he would release more solo albums, and less operas/african music though, before the covid i was thrilled with everything related to...

Wow....yes. My bad.

You all make an important point. Graham has had a prolific and beautiful music career as a solo artist.

Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

I’m curious as to how many members here would say they are a blur fan first and foremost or rather consider themselves a Damon Albarn fan?

Despite my love of all of Damon’s side projects I’d say I’m a blur fan first.

Re: The Great Escape = the code for life

Your explanation of the entire album is spot on. Wasn’t the song “country house“ about a record exec who made Blur miserable? I’ve even heard Damon introduce the song in concert as being about “neurotic pop stars”. That said, as a working man who scraped together enough to escape the mandatory “drai...
