I'm not complaining, per se. I mean, I will happily watch this and probably really enjoy it. I'm just pointing out how very unnecessary it is. :mrgreen: Of course I agree we are very spoiled and very lucky fans so blah blahdy boo, here's my debit card.

Not sure anyone has picked up on this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gypc_n5knq0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Skip to 6.45 in this documentary to hear Graham speaking. This is exactly what he said in the trailer. Perhaps the documentary film will be the Made in Hong Kong documentary with gig footage and additional interviews.

Exactly! What's NOT to enjoy about this documentary? If you're not interested at all then don't watch it ¿? I wasn't really interested in Parklive, so I never bought it, but I wouldn't complain about the mere fact that it exists XD

Also this is Blur, we know how they work. Today we get unexpected goodies and then tomorrow Damon will do some interview saying he hates Blur and they are not going to play together ever again. I've learned to appreciate every little thing we are given.

Besides, I'm genuinely interested in the footage regarding the band outside of the stage. Starshaped was so funny and NDLTR so bittersweet. This whole era has been inusual and fascinating and I'm personally eager to know more about it :P

I assume we will since it says there will be an "international release", and it would make sense since TMW charted well here and they will have played in LA and NYC.

Jamie's right, always moan moan moan. I don't understand :?: :!:

That gives me hope for a bonus CD or two, like the 100 Club CD in Parklive!

If they come out with a CD that has the live version of Pyongyang on it I'll definitely have to cop that.

Got to consider any day could still be the end of Blur so I'm so happy this stuff is coming up.

I'm hoping it's the end of a chapter and not the end of the book. But if it is then I'll be happy that if blur ended it on a high with a great album, some great shows this year and great memories for me to reminisce in years to come...

I can't see them going on much further, honestly, but of course we all thought that a few years ago and look what happened. Still, the only reason anything is happening this year is because they salvaged what they dabbled around with three years ago. We shall see...as a wise man once said "the future's uncertain and the end is always near..."

here's a question for our older viewers - is that Nick Lowe driving Dave's cab? :)
I put me trousers on, have a cup of tea, and think about leaving the house...
