Villa Rosie

Apologies in advance if this is a subject that has cropped up already(feel free to direct me to any threads that this is covered in) but does anyone know why Blur have ceased to play Villa Rosie live, ever!? Have they ever expressed a dislike for the song or a reason for it not being played live? It...

Re: B-Roads

Ah that's the one by Stuart Maconie! Have promptly ordered a copy from amazon today... That and Johnny Marr's autobiography shall keep me going for the rest of winter :). Thanks for the recommendation. I'm completely new to the world of forums, I joined this one only a matter of months ago as my lov...

Re: B-Roads

Prior to your statement Doug, my reply was going to be "...Okay, this is starting to get a bit political and divisive". I completely agree and see the logic in everything you have said. You've made things a lot clearer especially regarding the technicalities and potential repucussions of it being sh...

Ps sorry for sounding gripey.. Didn't intend for my comment to come across so brash. Just a frustrated Blur obsessive :(.

Re: Chemical World sounds

That's brilliant info. How did you find out about the use of the Boss Chorus at Live at Astoria 1997? Did you just hear it in the sound or read that it was used in an article? The only reason I say this is because Graham used two Marshall stacks and so sometimes they were mixed live which can give ...

Re: B-Roads

How have a number of people on here seen it though? I think it's very unfair that there is a hierarchy that can be trusted to see it, but the rest of us(which doesn't equate to a particularly large chunk of the human race what so ever) have to settle with the scraps and read a description in a book....

Re: Chemical World sounds

Really glad this was of help! Thanks for the appreciative comments :). Basically I've been a lifelong guitar player and am a bit of an equipment geek, find it very easy to detect what pedal is being used at any given time. It did take me years to figure out that it was the Boss VB 2 that got that si...

Re: Chemical World sounds

Graham's main distortion sounds, particularly the full punchy almost grungey tone in Chemical World comes from using 2 Proco Rat II. On the quiet sticato line after the main intro and over the verses he is using his Boss VB-2 Vibrato pedal(which I think is what you mean by the space sounds?). This i...

Re: B-Roads

If Damon was being so protective of Graham to the point he was telling journalists not to report his behavior at gigs on that tour, then why on earth did they even allow cameras to film? Surely the footage isn't THAT damning. Anyway, once again I'm a bit disappointed that those who have seen it can'...

Promotional only CD singles.

Hey guys, my friend from the local Vinyl store just dropped in some promotional only Blur singles. They have slightly different covers from the commercial releases, have a label on them stating they are strictly promotional only and include a sticker with the scheduled release dates and a paragraph ...

Re: B-Roads

Cheers for that.. Surely the reason EMI were such fascists about the possible sharing of 'B-Roads' in the past was due to the fact they were using footage from it on 'No distance left to run' in 2010... Without a direct connection to this forum, what can they actually do? How do you go about shuttin...

Re: B-Roads

Apologies.

I altered my comment, however you quoting it is a bit paradoxical if it's truly something that could get this 'shut down'.

Private message me in regards to said demo recording.

Re: B-Roads

Hahaha the way people are losing their sh*t over it when it's merely mentioned, I wouldn't be surprised. Having read through the whole thread related to B-roads, I am 10 times more eager to see it. It is an era that blur try to wipe from their cv.. Looking back, it was a state of limbo from the hang...
