Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

For me it's a decent album but isn't in the same league as the run of albums MLIR to 13. Personally I also prefer Leisure although perhaps that's more subjective. I think those earlier albums benefit from the fact Blur was the main ongoing concern for all members of the band, as opposed to the two ...

Re: Blur Video Thread

Wow, that's super cool! Never knew that this performance exists, especially because it is from the US. At least they tried a bit of promotion for Parklife there in 1994.

Re: Blur mix tape nostalgia

Great choice :D This would be kind of my personal best of, too. Especially because you picked some of the not so common songs like Bad Day or M.O.R.

Re: All We Want in 13.

Does anybody know where the sessions in the US took place? I could think that St. Louis was recorded more or less 'on the road' with portable equipment. I also think that early versions of the songs from 13 could easily fit in with the ST album and it's b-sides. Mellow Song was perhabs first played ...

Re: Graham in LA ...

My guess is that he is quite unhappy with the current situation in the UK. Sounds a bit silly, but his Twitter comments regarding to Brexit were not that positive. His time in LA seems to be happy. So he is propably working on a lot of new solo stuff, moving to a more 90s Indie sound. Just remember ...

Re: Favorite album for each individual member's input.

Damon - I would say that Modern Life Is Rubbish got his first realy big input. His songwriting changed after Leisure into a more focused, personal way. As you can see in the lyrics of Sunday Sunday, Chemical World or even Miss America, he aimed for more cultural perspective issues. It was his "Brita...

Re: Star shaped vhs rip

There is this version with Spanish subtitles, but I can not say if it's the VHS audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYK0A0d7SFM

By the way, what's the big difference between the VHS and DVD audio? Is the sound of the music not that clear?

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

It is always great to add new Blur items to the ever expanding collection, but I do think we could have recieved more for the anniversary, a full recording of a concert at the time in maybe a boxset or something, the band wouldn't have even needed to be involved, I am sure the record company would ...
