Re: The Needle Drop's review of The Magic Whip

Obviously he only works for 4chan kidz... Maybe it's the very first sign of the fact that I am now officially old that I find these meme spouting, image posting types intolerable.. Or maybe I simply don't understand.. Either way this guy and everyone on 4chan can get tae fuk.

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4fXGndZo7o 6/10 from our friend The Needle Drop. As expected really. Damn, and he's a blur fan too. Oh well, it was a about a 7/10 for me the first time I heard it, but it's grown on me since then. He's a Blur fan ?! Only a blur fan of the highest order wouldn't rec...

Re: Blur 'Converse' Show Live In Brooklyn, 1st May

Wonder if this will be the first proper show setlist wise or another run through of the album with a couple of oldies at the end?

Re: Y'all Doomed 7"

Wish it was longer! Like 10 minutes longer!

It's like 'Don't Bomb' might've ended up if Graham had still been in the band at that point.

Re: Magic Whip - song by song impressions

When it comes to I Broadcast, even though I haven't heard the album version yet (discipline!) I get the feeling I will get the same feeling I got when I heard the studio version of B L U R E M I for the first time after being only familiar with the live version...

Re: Blur on The Graham Norton Show, April 24

I thought the performance sounded a bit rough and they looked quite uncomfortable playing in that studio. It reminded me of how a gig used to feel for me when the onstage sound mix was wrong or when the venue you were playing in didn't allow the desired volume levels OR a combination of these two fa...

Re: Favorite Bugman remix

I've always wondered whether they all really actually remixed these songs themselves on their own in their bedrooms? Or whether they got people with the required skills in and just put their names to it. Or whether they sat with the remix people and said "make that sound like that". I can totally pi...

Re: Nardwuar Vs Blur

Dave was reeeeally horrible in that interview but his apology seemed sincere. As for Nardwuar, when I first discovered him I shared the view of a few people on here of "oh what an annoying knobhead" but if you delve a bit deeper and give him a chance he's actually a really intelligent and fascinatin...
