Recently uploaded to the youtube channel. Really nice insight into the thoughts and feelings behind Hong Kong, the album, and the comic (that may or may not be a tangible, purchasable item....)!

Edit: IT IS. if only id read the description.

Inspired by Blur’s recent hit album 'The Magic Whip', Hong Kong’s famed comic artist Kongkee of Penguin Lab has created a comic titled ‘Travel To Hong Kong With Blur’.

The 24-page visual companion to the Number 1 album features the four members of Blur as they undertake a traditional Manhua, futuristic adventure in Hong Kong.

Bit of an oversight not to include a Mr Ok china tea set? ;)

To be fair there are a few desirable items there. Shame it's come the wrong side of my birthday.

This is the first time in as long as I can remember that I've been excited about their merch. The shirts are great. The yo yo. SOCKS.

I thought the green sweatshirt was nice, but a bit pricey at £40. It goes up to £45 when you click on it. :o

Edit: looks like they've fixed it.

Some of the new merchandise is OK but it's all Japanese to me lol I like the black tshirt with the neon ice cream van that has a back print in Japanese, it would be nice to know what it says

How do I translate what's on the shirts if I can't read Japanese :D

Nope I'm asking that exact question, I'm guessing it says Magic Whip or Blur but the text looks different from the wording on the album cover, I'm talking about the neon ice cream van tshirt that I like.

BTW Your video is very good better than the official ones being used, is there a longer version to view? how did you paint the face on a Mr Whippy lol

Thank you :) Just a black pen and a plastic ice cream.
edit: There is no longer version. Though i could film the icecream dancing for a bit longer haha. Animaiton wise it was a very close cut to the deadline of the I Broadcast comp

Guys what other band releases a comic and a beach ball for their album release? OHMAGEE <3
I've got the comic sitting in my basket but waiting for confirmation on the shirts writing

Think i may get the icecream van one as well instead of tour shirt... not sure .. that one is awesomes!

From the latest email too, there are signed copies of the comic to be 'found':
And keep your eyes on @blurofficial for clues on how to find a signed copy in each of the cities that blur plays this week.
