Re: general blur thread

Just a random thought: whenever blur eventually performs again (they must!!), if they play End of A Century I am not prepared for Damon to sing “as you get closer… to 60”

Re: Blur-related attractions in London?

After seeing the Hyde Park Parklife bench in the "How Parklife came to be" thread, I thought I'd revive this old thread and share my list of "blur to-do's" and see if anyone had any new/updated thoughts. I've already been by Studio 13 a few times (lucked out with my airbnb, it was only a 2 minute wa...

Re: How did Parklife come to be?

Ahhh that damn bench!! The second day I got to London I wandered around Hyde Park for 2+ hours looking for it. Apparently it no longer exists, but did at one point (according to folks on Twitter who have said they saw it.) I got hopeless looking for the right bench and messaged a blur friend that ha...

Re: Africa Express: The Circus

Is this just a bunch of songs where African musicians and Anglo ones play together? Ellie Rowsell would be cool to see. Not sure how a Good, The Bad & The Queen gig is a one-off though. I assume it will be like a mix between how the 2012 concerts were and the 2015 5 hour long Roskilde gig. An eclec...

Re: Africa Express: The Circus

Oh no! Did they sell out quickly? I managed to grab some around 15 minutes after they went on sale, but I nearly forgot too.

And I'm staying in London, around Clerkenwell! I'd love to meet up. I hope you can find tickets somehow! If not, there's always the Palladium gig.

BLUR LIVE @ Africa Express: The Circus!

The first artists have finally been announced, and it sounds amazing! I am 100% grabbing tickets -- anyone else here thinking about it? Can't think of a better way to spend the 29th of March... Inside a big top circus tent on Wanstead Flats, the southernmost part of Epping Forest in Leytonstone, art...

Merrie Land is such a damn good album. It has been a perfect soundtrack for my long walks around London.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

It seems like Damon is the only one who likes his management. Does he just not realize? Or just not care? I mean, none of us know the inner-workings of it all, but I think it's telling when every fan I know hates Eleven. And I got my tickets in too, Mark72! Can't wait for the Palladium!! I also got ...

Re: Return of Vampire Weekend, June 2018

I quite like Harmony Hall. I wish 2021 were longer. I am still very excited for this album... can't wait to get a couple more new tunes. Trying to decide which date(s) to see them on their tour, which goes on sale tomorrow... ah! Bout time Vampire Weekend is back.

Re: Blurd Tribute Band...

The blur tribute band Popscene are playing Parklife in its entirety (and select other blur tunes) at Starshaped Club's 25th anniversary celebration of Parklife. I may try to go! It sounds like a good time. Image

Re: blur official answering questions on answer.sh

It's odd, I didn't expect there to be so many questions and so many answers to them. Also, what's with this? https://www.gazette-news.co.uk/news/173 ... stle-park/ Eleven MGMT says there's no truth to the rumors though.

Re: 10 favourite songs of 2018 (can include Blur related stuff)

I'll start. Hard to limit my Gorillaz, Graham, and TGTBTQ choices, but here's what I think my favorite songs were this year: Kansas - Gorillaz Souk Eye - Gorillaz Lady Boston - TGTBTQ The Poison Tree - TGTBTQ Roaming Star - Graham Coxon Total Football - Parquet Courts When You Die - MGMT Four Out of...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

The Poison Tree would have made a great Blur song. Think of what Graham could have done with it! Completely agree! While I love this album and band, and think that Merrie Land fits perfectly under TGTBTQ, it's hard not to imagine how good it would be as a blur album as well. I would kill for a blur...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Thanks lumaka and Neal Zeal! I'm excited to see the Palladium. I'm gonna try to get tickets as close to the front as possible, but either way I'll be happy. And I'm tempted to buy a ticket for Liverpool as well, as I have no class on Fridays while I'm in London, and it's a good excuse to visit Live...
