Re: Wanted: FC Singles

I have several eBay searches - one of which is 'blur rare' - throws up interesting little nuggets now and then ;)
Waissailing Song comes up 2 or 3 times a year - for £250 or £300 - I don't think it ever sells though...

Re: Wanted: FC Singles

if you persevere, you will eventually pick up them all from ebay UK - I managed to do this over a year or so... eg several up at the moment: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Blur-Fan-Club-Cds-Very-Rare-Collectors-/181678270981?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2a4cde6a05" onclick="window.open(this.href);retur...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Yeah but Damon's other recent activities might swell the fan base? This happened to me in 2009 when my love for GBQ and Gorillaz reignited my interest in blur (confined at that point to Parklife and ST which I had bought when they came out). I took my daughter to Hyde Park and was knocked sideways b...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Just read that the song "There Are Too Many Of Us" from the new album was inspired by the Sydney hostage situation. Pretty recent then, unlike other tracks that originated in 2013. I think it's the lyrics that reflect (very) recent work from Damon, with the music dating back to those initial workou...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

my favourite band last year was Temples who I saw live and are very good. partial thread hijack alert Agree - if you can get past their dogged retro styling (all grandad shirts, loons, waistcoats, kaftans - I've been there, done that in '72 :roll: ) the music is pretty good. Here's my vid of them a...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Damon's pretty much committed this year though - there's the Alice thing plus new Gorillaz and GBQ records (allegedly...) that boy needs to sit down and catch up with himself! Otherwise he's putting out stuff already a couple of years old - like Everyday Robots and - er - (in a way) Magic Whip (thou...
