Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

I've seen them three times in the UK on this tour (Hackney eARTh, Norwich UEA and London Palladium) and although a support hasn't been billed it's always been Trevor, the end-of-the-pier organist from Blackpool. Trevor's a fine keyboardist, but a bit of an acquired taste. Sadly, I've yet to acquire ...

Re: Likelihood of a Blur tour soon.

Well - there's quite a gap in Damon's forthcoming schedule. The last TGTB&TQ gig is on 18 August. After that the next known Damon commitment is the first 'The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows' event in Paris on 24 May 2020. Say rehearsals knock out April and May 2020, that leaves 10 m...

Re: new old audio interview from 1994

Website: http://cfmu.ca/posts/245-from-the-vaults-e10-blur YouTube: https://youtu.be/iTFCicTUkLE Just stumbled on this. Parklife era I think. It's really really really funny cuz both the article on the website and the description on YouTube said it's Damon while it's actually Dave. hmmm - they both...

Sister Rust - TGTB&TQ live?

Just listening through my videos of TGTB&TQ at the London Palladium the other night and marveling again at the tightness of the band and Damon's top notch singing... ... and I thought - wouldn't Sister Rust make a great TGTB&TQ live song :) :) You'd get Tony's scattering beats, Simon's shimmering gu...

Re: Parklife Demos '93

Is there a demo version of Death of a party from 92? Yes. From memory it's just Graham on an acoustic guitar with Damon singing. http://www.vblurpage.com/discography/fanclub/death.htm just had a listen after a long while - my version of the demo has the bass coming in half way through together with...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Yeah - was an excellent performance. My sister and I met aldamasta for a couple of drinks beforehand - we thought we'd give Trevor a miss this time ;) . I thought we'd only be a few rows back from aldamasta but it turned out we were a few rows back plus five storeys up - in the grand circle :roll: S...

Manchester last night was insane, met Damon afterwards and chatted about psychedelics :lol:
He's very open and chatty on this tour isn't he? I wonder if anyone will talk to him about what's next for blur? I have to say I didn't - thought it was a bit rude in the middle of a GBQ phase...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

^^ that's right - Northern Whale is missing. I managed to speak to Paul after the Norwich show - I said NW was one of my favourites and he said that I wasn't the only one routing for it! They have rehearsed it and he very much hoped it would get into the setlist for the Palladium this Friday. Here's...
