Magpie, you've probably answered this question dozens of times, but how did B-Roads come into your possession in the first place?

Is there a link to the B roads review? I have black book on my iPad, and 3862 days but not sure I've seen anything in either, tbf it's been a while since I read thru and when I've tried in recent times I'd been pissed and full of blur related emotion

There's no review in 3862 days, as far as I remember it's not mentioned in there - although it was over 10 years ago I last read it. There have been 2 editions of Drew's book (I think) and the B Roads review is only in the second one (again I think) so if you have the first edition that's why you haven't seen it in there. Hope that helps (although probably infuriates if you only own the first edition!)

Somewhere in my parents attic I might have a print out of the whole thread containing the photos. It's certainly not worth digging out for the photos (barely a black blur produced by a very old black and white ink yet printer... -- MrMagpies review gives you a far better picture), but if I still remember then I might check this when home for Christmas. Just to give you all an idea about the scale of the fuss this caused back then and how quickly it was deleted, just as Doug is pointing out here...

Blur's management have been so fast at shutting down B-Roads, if only they took the same care and precision with music promotion...

Hear hear!

That's certainly a sentiment I can get on board with.

I have always believed that somehow Damon was involved in setting them up? No idea how this belief has formed, but if you look at the artists they promote it's not unlikely to be true.

The only half-popular bands on there are Damon's ones...
