Re: What do you think of the new Blur song, 'Go Out'?

I'm really glad people have shared the track at this rate! This way we see the band remains relevant, which is not as easy after all this years without new material...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

The Orbitgate still hurts... I wasn't quite fond of his take on UTW, but "13" being my favourite album I had hopes regarding a new collaboration with him.

Then he had that childish outburst :roll:

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Do we have any idea of when are they going to announce more gigs? Maybe they said something in any of the interviews... All I've heard, I may have missed something, was Dave mentioning to Jo Whiley that announcements on other gigs would be this week, as things were still being arranged at the time ...

Well, considering he was the one who rescued the HK demos, and that it's his "fault" we have a new Blur record, I'd take ANYTHING from him :lol:

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Yeah Damon seems as caught off guard by this album, as we are :lol: I'll add my moan about the setlist just for the sake of it. I hope they don't end the shows with Song 2. The Universal would still be my top choice. He really didn't want to get involved with another Blur album, but then Graham and...

Re: What do you think of the new Blur song, 'Go Out'?

If this song is anything to go by, and bearing in mind Graham's effective curating of this album, we can expect lots more of his guitar textures and energy I think. That's fine and dandy by me. Where as it was sadly missing from Fool's Day (apart from the very end), UTW and The Puritan. I'll be mor...

Re: Favourite Blur album

We all know of the "life trilogy", but I have always thought it was a shame we didn't get a "numbers trilogy", imagine if we had two more follow ups to 13 produced by Orbit...with what D&G were doing in the post 13 years it's a question that can only be answered in a parallel universe. I'd have rea...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

I like Gene by Gene... In fact the only song I can't stand from Think Tank is Crazy Beat. That said, I really get what Damon means about it "not being a Blur album", because I always had the same feeling about it. It is a great album, it has some tunes that I adore, but it doesn't feel like Blur . S...

Re: Poll: How many Blur gigs have you attended?

Just two, and both in 2012: The first night in Wolverhampton and then Hyde Park for the Olympics.

I'd have liked to experience the MLIR, TGE or 13 eras, mostly for the setlists or the different vibes, but I was too young to attend a gig back then :cry:

Re: What do you think of the new Blur song, 'Go Out'?

Yeah, I like the mish-mash of their styles it provides. The background vocals are very britpop but the guitar sound says 13 all over . You nailed it! I gave it 4/5, I'm really enthusiastic about this song. If The Magic Whip follows this line I will be more than satisfied, as 13 is my favourite albu...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I really hope they announce more tour dates (that I can afford to go to). I attended Wolverhampton and Hyde Park back in 2012, and while I loved both, I am looking for the more intimate atmosphere of the small venues. Maybe wishing for them to come to Spain will be going too far at this early point,...
