Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Merrie Land is a ten song lament of Anglo-Saxosentialism marking the reluctant end of a relationship... Reluctant end of a relationship? What relationship is that?

No one is buying it for £200+ in 2018, back in the 90/00s deffo, but thanks to the internet, You Tube etc, these rare tracks are no longer so special.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Gorillaz, Good The Bad, his awful solo album etc...what a waste of Blur material we have missed out on, one of the greatest duo's in musical history - Albarn/Coxon and barely anything in 20 years when they could have easily progressed. Can you imagine if he actually made the effort and spent a month...

Re: Simon Mayo Breakfast Show jingle by Blur, 1993

Is the Popscene jingle they did for Mayo in there somewhere...I remember it went:

"Hey Hey it's 1Fm, Mayos alrigggght!" to the Popscene music, can remember listening to Radio 1 all the time back then in my first job. Great times on the radio, the start of Britpop right there.

I’ve found the last two Gorillaz albums to be a bit dull and uninspiring. I would include his solo album in thsat category.

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

To think the main bulk of this album was made with the band together in just a week, if Damon could just give 100% to Blur, he hasn't done that for nearly 20 years!

Two very sub par Gorillaz albums in 12 months, BLUR DESERVED MORE RESPECT.
