I've often wondered how/if Blur's later albums would have come about if The Great Escape had met commercial expectations.
It was supposed to be the record that took them to the level of Led Zeppelin fame worldwide and it didn't quite happen.

For Leisure, I'd put I Know on the album and put it out as a single instead of Bang. For MLIR, I'd have put Coping out instead of Sunday Sunday. The band probably agree with me. For Parklife- This is a Low instead of End of a Century. For TGE, It Could Be You instead of Charmless Man For 13, a 3 mi...
Maybe this question was asked before, but this one is for people who actually listened to blur as they were making records in the 90's. What was your reaction to the self-titled record when it came out? I mean, this was quite a big shift in both sound and lyrics, and this might have changed the opi...
I love TMW. 8/10 I'd definitely put it above Leisure and Think Tank and on a par with TGE. But it's definitely not in the same league as MLIR, Parklife, 13 or self titled, all of which are 9/10. My only criticism (and that's too strong a word) is that with the exceptions of Lonesome Street and Ong O...

I genuinely hope he is. Apart from anything else, it would definitely boost sales/interest
No one ever talks about the "Blur" theme to Sunnyside Farm (what's there to say tbh? It's shit). Its easily "their" worst song for me alongside Alex's Song and One Born Every Minute. This one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BLoYlI3F6E" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Fucking hell, t...
Scaled back from things such as featuring Bruce Willis for example.Sushi wrote:If you watch the video on the ABC AU site, he mentions that the new Gorillaz videos will have to be scaled back quite a bit. That's a shame.

Jupiter & Okwess International were the best support band imo, but I enjoyed The Horrors and Metronomy too. Drenge not too much really. Am I the only person who checked out Kitty Davis & Lewis? I thought they were really good. I love old school blues, RnB. Same vibe as Vintage Trouble who I saw sup...
