Re: Blur and Record Store Day

- First time vinyl reissue of the Budokan live album I’d want that if it were ever released. To me it’s to be a fan of a band that doesn’t put out a lot of rereleases or special editions of things that fans already have. I’ve shelled out more money than I want to think about on rereleases and thing...

Re: Blur Video Thread

I don't know if this was shared before but here is a festival interview from 2004 in Germany with Graham. He talked with Ray Cokes about festival gigs and Blur.

Toronto 1994

The PulpWiki wrote that at least a bit of their set was broadcasted live from their show at the Phoenix Concert Theater on 28th September 1994. Therefore Blur's set was propably recorded and broadcast, too.

Does anybody know something?

Re: How To Dress like Damon Albarn

I always liked the 1997-Blur era style with cargo and baggy trousers, logo shirts and jumpers. Also notable are his Vans and Adidas (since Parklife) and white trainers. I'm unsure about Stone Island: isn't it a quite expensive football and casual brand? Liam Gallagher also wears this apparel. Is the...

Re: Blur Video Thread

The uploader commented that this footage was shot in Dublin. But I guess that's unlikely because there are no records that Blur performed in Ireland in spring 1997.

Re: Blur Video Thread

Yeah, I guess that the interview was earlier that year. But I'm unsure about the venue of the life footage. The E-Werk is a bigger venue, the live video seems to be from a smaller venue with low ceiling, like a disco. So this footage was maybe shoot during the Beetlebum tour in the UK in January 199...

Re: 1994 US Tour

I remember being pissed off that I read about their US tour in NME and never heard a word about it locally. :evil: I wasn't "in the know" I guess. I fully understand you. Blur were below the big public recognition at this time since MLIR just sold about 20.000 issues in the US and had bad promotion...

1994 US Tour

One of the biggest mysteries of Blur's touring history is the 1994 US tour to promote Parklife. After the bad experiences in 1992, they only did a brief, but quite well documented promo tour over there in late 1993. But it's just a little bit known about the short tour in September 1994. The tour sc...

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 ...
