Wait, so there is an unreleased Seymour track called 'Us' ?! :shock:

What on earth happened to this listing I wonder.

Got me onto Superman by Seymour on You Tube....Blur in the early days were chaotic and punk none of this barely made it onto Leisure...

Should have had studio versions of Day Upon Day and Superman

Superman - Brilliant chaotic energy, 100000 x better and interesting than anything he does with Gorillaz these days.

Hello, thank you for the upload!

“Us” is the first, or just an alternative name of “I Know” – I chatted about it with Mike Smith (the A&R Mike who signed Blur to MCA Publishing) because on an old tape with Blur live recording he got from Food back in summer 1990 "I Know" is also titled "Us".

Definitely. I actually like Leisure, I think it's underrated really, it has some of Blur's best songs - I mean it has Sing! She's So High and There's No Other Way have also both stood the test of time. But I also think it could have been better. Day Upon Day, Inertia, Luminous are all great songs and probably deserved to be on the album - they are definitely more interesting than some of the tracks that made the cut.

I love how slow it is and that big drum sound. Can we get the other two songs?
