Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

I didn't get the feeling of this sounding like Damon solo, not even once. The contribution of every single member was too evident. Just because Damon seems to have focused on a specific way of singing lately (more lyrical and poetic) and a few tracks had a minimalistic approach doesn't mean anythin...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

Can't stop listening to Graham's guitar part in New World Towers. Thank you for this album, tweedz. One of my favourite bits of the whole thing....that guitar part combined with Damon's lovely melody, with the harmonies too...."seven on me" / "seven on the left hand side" or whatever the fuck it is...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

It was really really good but I think it sounds more like damons solo stuff than blur Definitely has elements of that. Damon has been putting out amazing records on his own since the last blur record so glad there are some hints of TBTQ, Gorillaz, and Everyday Robots. A lot of the music (especially...

Just re-watching and noticed something.....towards the end of Pyongyang when Graham starts singing with Damon, but singing a different part. It's his chorus innit...the one he said wasn't as good as Damon's. Well they sound fuckin magical together. Seriously lovely.

I feel I need to temper some of this gushing.....surely it's time Damon got rid of his earring? He's 47 for fucks sake. :mrgreen: At least he wasn't wearing a baseball cap with a ganja leaf on the front :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: With that gold tooth I'd say the earring is the least of his styli...

Re: Lonesome Street

He gets a fearsome amount of stick on Twitter....for his hobnobbing with Clarkson and Cameron, his cheese, his ubiquity I guess. I think sometimes he doesn't do himself any favours but he's a really good musician and it's a shame he doesn't get anywhere near enough credit for it. Also, he seems lik...

Mindblowing all this isn't it. Trust our favourite band to go and do it like this....like, by accident and over such a short space of time.......and then actually pull it off. It's unbelievable. :lol:

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

Yes, I really missed the two absent tracks but I enjoyed that so much. I felt like I was there at the gig. I wanted to clap at the end of some of the songs they were so good. And how good is Pyongyang? Astonishing track. I Broadcast is a fantastic belter. Thought I Was a Spaceman passed me by a lit...
