Re: general blur thread

He is a seriously good interpreter of folk music and the old folk songs. Not sure he knows quite how good he is at it. His version of Bruton Town, that he played on the radio a few years ago, is wonderful and it totally opened up folk music to me. Until then I'd only ever got as far as Jansch and Re...

Haha! That can't be them. Graham in particular would never carry on like that. :lol:

Re: general blur thread

Hopefully a video of that performance will emerge. His version of Cruel Mother is absolutely brilliant. Here for anyone who hasn't heard it:

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

LOL I didn't say it was done - I said it feels like it is drawing towards an end from a personal and a UK perspective. And since there are no more UK gigs currently scheduled, I'd say that's reasonable. :lol:

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

I think Damon has loved it too. He's proper, he doesn't do half measures, and after 09/12 he wouldn't have done this without it being proper. They had some great new material, he lost weight, got fitter, everything. He even juggled all this at the same time as him doing the wonder.land stuff.

Re: Blur Video Thread

Just thought I'd drop this old classic in here. Best interview ever, with anyone, ever, anywhere.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

So what next? It feels like this latest chapter is drawing to an end, certainly as far as the UK is concerned. They have a couple of European festivals in July, playing in Hong Kong en route to Australia where they play 4 dates, then that's it until September when they Electric Picnic in Ireland. Fo...

Re: Gig: Paris, 15 June

Me neither, I dind't liked the "here we go.." thing in Paris. Actually, I didn't understood well what he was saying so I was like... :?: :?: :?: :?: But anyway, I found it a little strained, I would have enjoyed song 2 more without it. For the earring, marijuiana leaf, and so on things that Damon i...

Re: Gig: Paris, 15 June

I've no qualms with the swearing - how uptight must one be to take issue with a swear word? - it's the just the sort of beery, football chant (and I love football) thing that I find distasteful.
