John Osborne - The New Blur Album

I'm certain this must have been posted before (?), but I just discovered it.
For those of us who were teenagers in the 90s, this piece has to be especially emotive - and the ending totally floored me:

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

You can't beat that melody, that chorus and those fantastic rap verses. For me it's the true definition of a masterpiece. Indeed, fantastic song no matter how you look at it. My memory though, was that the remix was what got the radio play. Same with 19-2000 - the remix was the things everybody kne...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

So, what are folks' ideal 2D led album from Humanz and TNN combined? For me: Humility Sleeping Powder Tranz (I hope someone remixes this primarily to make it longer) Busted and Blue Saturnz Barz She's my Collar Fireflies Hollywood Idaho (live from Tokyo Boiler Rooms) Socererz Charger Magic City Andr...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

The Boiler Room gig is up on youtube for 24 hours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAy5pJzLvGc Listening now, and I think it's going to be the definitive version of TNN for me - love this version of Idaho - with a bit more pace to it :) Lots of great visuals unseen elsewhere as yet - Also, in the vi...

For some reason the groove and even the vocals of Sorcererz a litle bit remind me of this amazing tune from the 90s :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_O6BWniZwY But then, every time my four year old sings Let It Go, from Frozen, there's a part where I automatically morph it in Girl From Mars by A...

Daii thanks so much for the download. The whole concert is just awesome, such a great energy and surprises as well as the new songs which sound amazing, love the new Epwrid version and love that they’re playing the alternative Andromeda version.

Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

Completely agree but can't believe nobody has mentioned Best Days so far. One of Damon's best 'hymns'. And yes, htoc is a highlight alongside BD and the Universal. I was 15 when it came out and i bought it on tapr from woolworths. The only thing about Mr Robinson is that people who had only been hea...

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread // 28th April

Love the album, absolutely one of the best things Damon has ever released, and I haven't yet heard the bonus disc. Anybody else feeling similar vibes from the Apprentice as from the Londsdale Boys Club remix of Doncamatic? A very good thing IMO; i always listen to that as the definitive Donc! https:...

Beagle 2 actually deployed - so did Blur's track play?

Great news for fans of bearded inventors trying to get spaceships to Mars. This was the craft that Blur composed the track Beagle 2 for, and it was supposed to be played as the craft unfolded on the Mars surface. The fact that most of the deployment actually happened, means the track almost certainl...
