also: where can isee that video?
It's indeed great to see. The video is in the Jimmy Fallon thread or you can download it in the Live Downloads 2015 section.
Right? I don't remember them that happy during their promotion of 2009 or 2012. I mean look at them lately, they are beaming! Damon acting goofy is also a pleasure to see and reminds me of old times. I take all of it as a very good sign :)

Yeah, i've seen the pics of Missy and Pepper, cute! :D

And seeing a more recent pic of Missy with make up and all really makes me wonder if it wasn't her who was near me at Mode's gig (well, there was definitely Pepper on my left anyway)

Look at them! Awwww...!!! :D

Found the link on twitter, it's from a German interview. I don't understand much of what they're saying (there is an interpreter translating at the same time they're speaking and my German is very, very rusty :mrgreen: ) but have a look, sounds both hilarious and sweet! The chemistry... <3

Well the guy introducing the video was talking about important partnerships in music Lennon/Mcartney etc, so I guess these two are some german musicians? :?

Damon put the teapot lid on the chair, so it probably got a bit wet, that's why Graham was cleaning it :lol:

The picture at the end looked like Gilbert & George who are a well known artist duo/couple who I think met at Central St Martins and (famously) live together in Spitalfields, East London. Not sure what the relevance was to the interview though, other than they are a partnership.......

Not a translation but from what bits I can hear under the German....

Damon - we decided that it was the perfect opportunity to see if we still had it and could make interesting music together and that's really how we made the record

Graham - It's an odd feeling and it's very intense so I suppose that in some ways [inaudible] Damon would say stuff then that would perhaps trigger, they were sort of triggers

Damon - It's a miraculous record in a way it's one of the easiest I've ever been involved in to complete

The voice over seems to talk about when they met, then when Blur became big with G&B, then mentions pressure, alcohol and drugs and I think Graham leaving

Graham - Our relationship has had to go through a lot, it's long term, its a long term friendship. Then it's [inaudible but I think he says something about it being like being brothers] It's really horrible when you're absolutely tired and under a lot of pressure to sustain your position as a top rock band is always there and you're always going to be knocked down if you take your eye off the ball and there's a constant pressure, I suppose its like a kettle, [makes weird kettle noise!] all the time, you know explodes all over the place. I don't think we've ever stood there and shouted [inaudible] or threw glasses and ?

Damon - you did try and take my head off with a guitar in Dublin

Graham - Did I?

Damon - yeah, it's ok , I luckily moved just in time

Graham - an electric one?

Damon - yes

Graham - right [laughs and falls about]

The voiceover then talks about MTH and presumably that it's about their relationship

Damon - that records not all about Graham [big grin] but, but, but that song is definitely

Graham is asked how he feels about that

Graham - I don't know, I got,I had the feeling, I don't know its just, [inaudible] I guess people love to have songs written about them, you know but I see it as sort of affectionate really

Then something about it being a happy end and something I think about it being 20 years since Gilbert & George and then they seem to pose like them with Graham saying 'they seem pretty happy I think, don't they?" Then Damon says something I can't hear.
