Yes that was quite nice article actually. Favourite bit was Graham's response to the question: Where do you stand on X Factor?
Stage left with a machine gun

Just gave it another spin, ICM has kinda fallen out of favor for me in comparison to the rest of the album. I would like it better if it had more of a chorus.

Some remixes of Spaceman would be good. That has a lot of layering in it that can be isolated.

Graham: ‘Whatever you say about it, it’s magic to make people jump around and smile. The only time it goes wrong is when you think: Graham, you’re 46 – you look slightly ridiculous.’

Nice to get an explanation about why Damon was so quiet on Graham Norton as well!

INT:Do you still get nervous ahead of big shows like Hyde Park?
Damon:‘Not nervous. It’s more about being physically fit enough to do it as it needs to be done. Before 2009, I was heavier. I’d been doing Gorillaz and it hadn’t been necessary to be very public. I wasn’t overweight, but I was a couple of sizes bigger than I am now. Since then I’ve trained constantly – a whole variety of things from boxing to cycling.’
what a diva haha :mrgreen:

Every Blur promo ever (modern-time)

Damon: I'm so cool and menacing
Graham: I'll just move away from you guys so no one knows I'm even here
Alex: I'm chill no matter where you put me
Dave: Hey, I'm in Blur too

Graham would struggle to ever look ridiculous to be honest... Super cool. 8-)

I never knew Alex was drinking again, but I'll bet he can't do dangerously, he has too much work on..I've tried drinking like a 24 year old, but when you're 34 you just can't do it!
NOT for the likes of you. Image
