Re: Damon: Rolling Stone Interview

It's just the other way round for me with blur gigs: When they are approaching I often think "ah well, I have seen them so often and sometimes in really special, tiny venues, this gig will be nice, but not more..." and when I go out I am blown away and I cannot wait to see them again -- even if I ha...

Re: Gorillaz - Phase 4?

I, for one, am also very excited to hear he is moving away from slow, melancholic piano songs and towards more energetic stuff.

Re: Gorillaz - Phase 4?

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Very odd choice indeed, as I have said elsewhere today already. But remembering what Dave said (I guess in an interview backstage at the Isle of Wight Festival), they have to do big shows to cross-fund the small ones -- so here is some hope that a show off F1 in Dubai increases the chances of smalle...

Re: RIP Old Forum: 1 Year On

Oh my, I feel old now -- and I wish I could time-warp back to one year ago, with all the Magic Whip excitement still ahead.

Thanks, Veikko!

Re: Blur - Coronation Street

Any background information for those not familiar with Coronation Street? 1. It's a soap opera based in Manchester. 2. It's the longest running soap of all time. 3. It's absolutely shit. I know that much... What I meant was what the Lonesome Street cover and accompanying video refer to? What does t...

Re: B-Roads

- Get some mates around, get drunk, act out the whole thing. Very appealing idea, but I doubt I could any of my mates to watch this for long enough to get them acquainted with more than, say, two scenes, maybe three at best...

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

^exactly my feelings towards that gig. Wish I had gone to Llandudno as well, but since I did not and since there seem to be no more European non-festival dates planned this will be how the Magic Whip Tour ended for me... Shame, since it started of very pleasantly with the Berlin showcase for me.
