Re: Damon's plans for the next months

He is a total scatterbrain and trying to work out his plans are pointless. He is just all over the place. The biggest pain is he seemingly has limited quality control. He obviously likes the regiment of working at specific times, and a lot of people need that routine in their life, but just because ...

Re: unpopular blur opinions

It's bizarre how Song 2 wasn't the lead single for that album, but regardless, I think they could have released anything from the self-titled and it would have charted well. Sometimes bands have great momentum, a big name, and anything will catch on and get sold.

Re: fools day - blur best song as 4 men since 1999

Agree it's underrated. One of Graham's finest solos. I feel retrospectively the way it was released as a record store day one off was a massive waste. I guess they just didn't want to make a fuss at all as there was no album on the horizon then. If it actually had a proper chorus it could have poss...

Re: Blur's height

So is that 6'0 as 182cm or 6'0 as 183cm?

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

I'm just looking forward to hearing that beautiful sound again. I know they're using a different producer this time around but I really liked the production on the first album. I could be in the minority though, but to me it adds to the overall feel of the band. Excellent on all levels. Yeah the pr...

Blur's height

Alex 1.90 Damon 1.80 Graham 1.80 Dave 1.75 Does anyone have their definitive heights? Suss out Damon's and you have the rest. He has awful poster, a slim frame, and yet dressed baggy-ish in the 90s so it's very hard to gauge. At times he has been barely taller than the Gallagher brothers who are sel...

There is almost no strategy to anything Gorillaz or Damon does.

Re: Did The Magic Whip give you closure?

I never got the love for Ong Ong. Seemed the sort of song they never ever would have made fifteen years ago, and not in a good way like Fool's Day. The absolute corniness of it gets to me, as does its sunny disposition, as does how nonsensical the lyrics and story of the song are. It's a song that s...

Re: Did The Magic Whip give you closure?

For me, there would have something neat and tidy if they had finished with 13. The end of the 90s, the end of Blur as a full time band, the end (as hindsight has shown) of a career defining run of albums and singles that is now widely accepted as the Blur cannon, their legacy. Blur were a part of t...

Blur and addiction

Does anyone have any good articles relating to Blur's general relationship with drink and drugs? I'm sure there's a few interviews out there with some good quotes amongst the endless line here and there. Especially interested into their views and insights into giving them up. Obviously there's a doc...

Hello Pavlich! Here's an audience recording from the show: http://www.mediafire.com/?5t4otae39efzd8e" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I can't remember where I originally got it, probably from Dime.

Apparently there is a live bootleg out there of this show. I've done the usual skim search and haven't found anything. The proof is apparently in this website here: http://blurliveaudioarchiveproject.blogspot.com.au/2009/10/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; This was the final Blur show...

Re: general blur thread

I'm listening to this on BBC Radio 4 now: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04jj113 It's only tangentially about Blur, but someone might enjoy it. :) I did. That was quite corny but also very real and sweet; some of the lines in here are hitting. I like the simple things he taps into. I think the st...
