Re: The History Of A Cheating Heart

I think the 'big experiences' are probably moments when he has been unfaithful to partners or friends, past and present. "I do love you, but it's just a fact" - It's as though he is telling his partner that he does and always will love them, that never changes regardless, but there's still a curiosi...

Re: Orbit's Under the Westway

Bits of it remind me of the production on MLIR. The auto tuned vocals make it sound a bit too children's television, but much like the Andy Partridge sessions, it does offer an intriguing alternative.

London Fields

Not sure if there is already a thread on London Fields already, apologies if so... Who here has read the book? Just wondering what aspects of the book most influenced Damon and on what particular songs? It seems to be widely regarded as being the biggest inspiration for his writing on Parklife and T...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

Starting to enjoy The Now Now... Another Gorillaz album in the next couple years though and I think we will all suffer from severe Gorillaz fatigue.

Re: Likelihood of another Blur record

I'd even take so much as a tour or a couple of big open air gigs again. I am one of the few on here that still needs to see the boys live! It's the band's 30th anniversary next year is it not...?

Re: The new way of promoting albums

I think more so than ever these days you have to build up a sense of exclusivity around an album release, even if you are an established act that became huge before streaming culture took hold. Suspense and mystery is key to reminding people of your stature and importance even in the modern musical ...

Re: Likelihood of another Blur record

Have to say I agree! Fool's day, despite not having a chorus, was so instantly memorable when it came out. It's got a similar quality to For Tomorrow in that it sounds classic without actually ripping anything else off and still sounding uniquely 'Blur'. I love TMW, but Fool's Day is probably the st...

Likelihood of another Blur record

What does everyone think is the likelihood of a follow-up to TMW? Surely that is Gorillaz done and dusted for a while after the current touring schedule is over. TGTBTQ probably wont have too extensive a promotional campaign and given the age of some of it's members, will only have a small tour plan...

Re: Damon's worst gig of his life

Yeah he's kinda put his foot in his mouth a bit. I doubt Paul would like to be referred to as the victim of exploitation or as Damon put it in more extreme terms, abusive treatment, as it kind of makes Paul look like a bit of a simpleton for allowing it to take place despite his stature. I don't thi...

Damon's worst gig of his life

Was anyone there for this one? Damon's impulsive nature, particularly on stage, is a reason we all love him, but this... :shock: :lol:
