Re: BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

Last night was just incredible. I had heard a rumor that blur were reuniniting, but assumed Graham was still in the states so I just shrugged the idea away. From the angle i was at in the front row, I could see all the artists watching from side stage and saw Damon go up and hug Alex and Dave. Then ...

Re: The return of SLEEPER!

It was great! They had a couple difficulties - drummer was in a car accident (he's okay!) and the keyboardist had a sick child (also ok thankfully!) But they still put on a charming show. You could tell they were having a lot of fun. Louise called it "half-unplugged" ha! And they were super kind at ...

Re: Islande - Damon at the Philharmonie de Paris, 24 May 2020

Yeah, completely off topic. Rather than get into politics or anything like that, I'll say that I am very intrigued about this show. I wonder when we'll know more about it? Perhaps Damon will mention it Friday when he and Paul are on BBCR6. It's odd to me that tickets are already on sale over a year ...

Re: Return of Vampire Weekend, June 2018

The London shows are happening while I am in Spain for my spring break... ahh! Oh well, I can't complain much. I'm just sure those shows will be something else. I saw VW live in 2014, but I am very much wanting to see this new iteration of them, what people are calling "Jampire Weekend", hehe. Harmo...

Re: Blur Live albums

I believe both of those albums (or maybe just Parklive?) were available as soon as the gig was over, I think through Abbey Road's "Live Here Now" or something like that. I remember it was the same case for Damon's live albums with The Heavy Seas at the Royal Albert Hall. While it's cool that they ar...

Re: The return of SLEEPER!

The tunes and look of the band were fantastic. I'm excited for their new album! Glad they have Stephen Street as producer again. I'm going to an album signing at Rough Trade East where they're playing a small gig afterward... can't wait!!

Re: general blur thread

I also have a (perhaps blind) hope that blur will be next up… after Damon’s next Malian endeavor. The thing about that is it’s probably quite close to finished by now, relatively speaking, especially considering the pace at which damon works and his recent trip to Mali. I think the stars may align. ...

Wow, that's brilliant. He does indeed nail them. I would kill for Graham himself to make a video like that!

I wonder why they switched the Liverpool venue from the Olympia to the O2. More capacity?

Re: Blur-related attractions in London?

I should be going round to Greenwich sometime in March and definitely plan on walking around the area Parklife was filmed in!

By the end of my semester in London I'm hoping to have a nice album of photos of all the blur stuff I've seen :)
