Re: All We Want in 13.

Not hate but he let songs meander and put way too much of his stamp on it, Tender should be a lot shorter, I don't mind his Bugman but that should be more of a remix, the live Bugman is much better and could have been a tight punk song on the album. Movin On the original is much better, his remix so...

Re: All We Want in 13.

I shudder to think what Orbit would have done to punky classics like Popscene and Song 2.

all we want should be on blur, not 13.
I agree. It’s a great song, but it doesn’t fit the mood of 13.
Yup, not sounding like something Orbit messed up...its clear nice production.

I would take 15 Blur punk rock songs of Crazy Beat quality over Damon's other ventures of the last 15 years or so...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

YES! ^ This is what I wanted on the album, but got some mellow lo-fi biz instead. Thanks Orbit :roll: Street would have turned it into a single. This is my first time seeing it on video, all I had before was a bootleg CD. Exactly, Bugman is so brilliant here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG0Vp...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

....And don't forget the Blur punk ep live gig that was cancelled the day before, fan club invite, all very strange, lots of 2000+ Blur history we still don't the full story of.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

"it is heartbreakingly criminal that the potential of the musical partnership that is Damon and Graham has lain largely dormant for the last 20 years...

Re: Does anyone know who compiled Blur: The Best Of?

This ignoring of Popscene is alarming!

Blew me away when I first heard it, and the studio version is perfect...Never Clever on the other hand which was going to be the follow up, the studio version is all wrong...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

Yes 13 was a letdown after "Blur" for me, so excited to hear the new single after the previous brilliant "Beetlebum" and barnstorming "Song 2". Remember been very disappointed when I first heard Tender, its a great song, bit simple and goes on way too long which I had always said about Oasis singles...

i'm always disappointed when i hear that gorillaz will release new material.
Spend more time with blur damon!
Exactly the last time Damon put full effort into Blur is nearly 20 years ago, The Magic Whip only happened thanks to Graham...ffs more Gorillaz, total sub par every time...
