Req: Glastonbury 1998 warm up shows?

Hi, just wondering if any recordings exist of the 1998 Glasto warm up shows? It was such a great setlist, i'd love to hear an alternative recording of it played in a more intimate setting.

Re: Bill Laswell Session - 2000

I find these sessions intriguing also... I always wondered why they didn't continue on the creative wave they seemed to be riding following 13 and follow up the interest created by the Best Of album.. Were they planning to record a new album in 2000 and when it didn't work out, it began the downward...

Re: Thoughts on the self titled album

I totally spontaneously listened to this album for the first time in years yesterday and was COMPLETELY unaware that it was it's 20th anniversary... How weird.. I can still remember the first time I heard it 20 years ago and being shocked at how different it was to the Blur we all knew at the time. ...

Re: A thread for those disappointed by The Magic Whip

It's the only Blur album I listen to all the time (i've quite literally listened to all the others to death and now need a good 5+ years away from them). The only songs i've been known to skip (only when listening in the car for some reason) are I Broadcast and every now and again, Spaceman. Not sur...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

It is strange, yes.. Alex did a video where he invented people in Abu Dhabi to see the concert (edit: here it is - https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=986263781396524&id=148788988477345&refsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fm.facebook.com%2Fthenational.ae%2Fvideos%2F986263781396524%2F" onclick="window.open(...

Re: Blur in Q's "100 Greatest Albums of the 90s"

U2's Achtung,Zooropa and Pop was a great run of albums for them back in the 90's and deserves to be higher in this poll. Shame it went wrong for them from 2000 onwards. Yeah! So glad someone else shares this opinion that I go around preaching constantly. And don't forget Passengers! I loved everyth...

One thing I now find impossible to ignore is how much Damon punctuates his sentences with "you know" in interviews. Once noticed it can never be unnoticed..

Re: Swamp Song

The lyrics he used to sing live were quite different to the lyrics on the album version. I also think the album version doesn't compare to the live version.

Ask him how many he owns, why they mean so much to him and if he'd ever consider wearing something else.
