Re: Gwenno (of the Pipettes) - new Cornish language album

I was literally just joking to someone last night that I'd learn to speak Cornish for the sheer esoteric hell of it.

Shall check out this album

Re: Blur song facts

The "alternate" MLIR track list was bollocks.

Note how all of Popscene's B-sides are on there alongside the song itself.

Note how tweedo appeared to refute its existence in ye olde days of forum

Re: R.E.M. Thread

I'm sorry but Monster doesn't do much for me. The self-conscious return to 'rock', glam hooks and glam aesthetic (Mike Mills especially), if I was there in 1994 I could see it as to some degree quite promising. But the record itself is short on what it wants to achieve for me. Some great tracks (Wha...

Re: am I blurs biggest fan...

Nail on the head indeed and I wonder if he ever took up on his threat to make a Blur forum for those who had been fans since 1990. Presumably they don't talk about Blur as much as the triviality of their 'honour'. To be the biggest fan of the band per m aps you just have[...] Dear oh dear I used the...

Re: Music essays/reviews that are worth reading

I really love Tim Worthington's blog at the moment. Discovered it many moons ago via his This Is Cult Fiction reviews but I've got into some of the posts so much in the past few days - especially those on weird BBC Records singles - that I'm contemplating buying his book about the subject. Or rather...

Re: am I blurs biggest fan...

To be the biggest fan of the band per m aps you just have to love the music to the sort of extent where you really do play it to death I guess, and take an immense interest in the catalogue and the band's musical activities, and you can do that on the music's own terms. Sure I and others own a massi...
