Re: That Pedal Show with Graham Coxon (2018)

Yes, it's realy interesting how he starts to playing the riffs of special songs like "Villa Rosie".

Re: MrMagpie's Music Book Reviews

The review is very nice. I also enjoyed your portraits of Blur and Graham.

As for the Beatles, do you know the German book "Die Beatles - Geschichte und Chronologie" ("The Beatles - History and chronology") It counts down information for every day the band existed.

Re: Blur song facts

Badgeman Brown was planned to be a moderat chart hit, but never gained big attention.

And the distorted dialog at the end of Theme from Retro was Damon, talking to a bouncer outside a club during Blur's US tour.

Re: Best era to see Blur live?

Well, in spite of all the misery around, you can be damn happy to enjoyed this rare choice of songs. If Blur would come back, they should add some gems to the setlist like at this gig. :)

Re: Best era to see Blur live?

Ah, sorry for my mistake. Besides all the personal troubles, do you remember that they peformed Fried? The setlist of this gig seem's to be amazing. The changes of Blur's setlist is one of the things which made them to such a good live act

Did you went to the gig in Paris in February or April 97?

Re: MTV Unplugged - Blur

I always realy enjoyed their acoustic performances like on Ray Cokes show. But MTV Unplugged became a rip off in the last time. In the area where I live, it is just a good possibility to earn money for old rock stars. :roll: But Blur could realy fit it in with a general acoustic set, because a lot o...

Re: XTC

Allright. I am always a bit critical with the later works of some groups. But at least you can say that Andy is one of the big "forgotten" masters of pop songwriting. So I will give a listen to it.

Re: One Born Every Minute

One Born Every Minute was written by Damon straight after For Tomorrow, or not?

Re: general blur thread

Ah, cool. So I guess you went to the gig at the Wiltern? Was it a good show? I wonder if they travelled by train or plane, because I heard that they tried to avoid the stress of the 92 tour and so they prefered the plane on later tours.

Re: general blur thread

Interesting points. Did they enjoyed a lot of airplay on stations like KROQ or local stations? They must be a good group of fans, because the spring tour in 1996 was sold out. Where this gigs well supported by press?

Re: general blur thread

It is often written that Look Inside America is about touring in the USA (By the way: One of the best bits from the self titled album). But is it more from the 1992 tour or from the later, short tour legs in 1995/1996? Both could be possible.

Re: R.I.P. Mark E Smith

Yes, that's sad, I always hoped to see him live in the future. I discovered Smith and The Fall some times ago through Pavement. The Frenz Experiment and Perverted by Language are great albums.
