Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

I consider myself a hardcore Blur fan (how wanky does that sound :lol: ) and I'm swerving Hyde Park this time. I know loads of equally hardcore Blurries who aren't bothering this time. It's shit isn't it. Too big, too impersonal, full of knobheads and the sound is rubbish. They've done small venues...

Does anyone remember The Beat with Gary Crowley?
Haha yeah. Gary Crowley and his hedgehog haircut :lol:

Re: Smoggy appreciation thread

He doesn't really strike me as the kind of dude who'd be into Blur :mrgreen:

Maybe I'm wrong though :D

Re: Blur on TFI Friday special on 12th June

It'll be odd not watching it at the show's home of riverside studios.. I'm the same as you Sean, I was 23 in '96 and it was my Friday night viewing before a night on the town or going to gigs in London for the weekend. and I would record the 11pm show(setting a timer on My VHS player was like progr...

Re: Blur on TFI Friday special on 12th June

Funny cos most people I know who only hear stuff on the radio have contacted me to be all like "fuck me that new Blur song - surely their album has some better stuff on it than that?" sort of thing. It's alright like but it *is* pretty rudimentary stuff and wilfully populist.

Re: Blur Survivor: THE MAGIC WHIP (Round 2)

I think The Puritan is one of Blur's very worst songs, if not the worst. So bad it's embarrassing.

Re: Courtney Barnett - yes or no?

It's a really fun record. She's pretty cool and I like her style. She's also a really neat guitarist.

Re: Blur on TFI Friday special on 12th June

So the Blur bandwagon rolls on to TFI tonight! Gonna be really weird. In 1996 when it was first aired I was 18 going on 19, and I was very much the hedonist. It was always on while I got ready to go out, drinking a bottle of wine or cider while I watched. It felt like Blur were on a lot. Anyway - I ...

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

http://i62.tinypic.com/27z989x.jpg Had a pretty fantastic night! Got someone's pint of (hopefully) lager down my shirt and was accidentally kicked in the head by a crowdsurfer, but none of that mattered. Haha I got kicked in the head by four separate crowd surfers. I had to take it on the chin - qu...

Re: Smoggy appreciation thread

Yes, top man Smoggy. Deserves all this praise and more. Who'd have thought you could make a living out of holding on to the back of Damon's trousers all these years? :lol: :lol: I was gonna say - I wonder what he does when Blur aren't touring? He must have a day job? But if he does they'd have to b...

Re: Gig: Llandudno, 11 June

Saw a few tweets saying the crowd was a bit shit tonight - any thoughts from those in attendance?

Getting great feedback otherwise, though. Again.

Re: Blur Survivor: THE MAGIC WHIP (Round 2)

I really really *really* don't get the apathy towards New World Towers. It's a beautiful song and Graham's guitar breaks elevate it to something really quite special I think. Absolutely agree - zeitgeist greensleeves! Yep that thing Graham said is absolutely spot on IMO...it really does have that f...
