Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

Someone on Instagram said they brought a six year old to see it. For those whom have seen it, is it really appropriate for a six year old? I can image loads of “F” bombs being thrown around. Just curious. Is it like Bananaz? I actually enjoyed that film. I’ll get it whenever it’s released on DVD/Bl...

Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

I enjoyed it, but as per many of the reviews it doesn't really say or do anything much as a film in it's own rights. My enjoyment came more from reminiscing about going to a handful of their gigs and feeling the genuine love from the audience. Would really struggle to recommend it to anyone who isn'...

Re: alex james in trouble!

Superb Labour nearly wiped out, and what a disaster they are left with...get that schoolyard yob Angela Rayner in as leader the comedy will be excellent. 100 year old labour seats, even they saw through Corbyns ridic monopoly money freebies and giveaways...well done Alex, and don't let the rabid ha...

Re: alex james in trouble!

For once in my life I relax and I think to myself 'well look, it's a political thread but everyone's discussing things quite nicely and there's some spirited debate and it's not REALLY about Alex at this point but who cares?' And then a comment about Fat Les triggers all this off?! :lol: Folding, I...

Re: alex james in trouble!

More people = more gdp, more people contributing to taxes, more money for the NHS. In theory anyway. If you have anyone to blame for NHS it's an aging population, not immigration. At the risk of taking this further off topic, we could look at the fact the NHS has lost 17,000 beds since 2010, but cl...

Re: alex james in trouble!

Ok so Labour spout on abot nhs waiting lists, oversized classrooms etc, the population of this country goes up a million every couple of years...so none of this will be sustainable in 10 to 20 years how ever much money they throw at it...so what is Labour's policy on immigration... THERE ISN'T ONE....

Re: alex james in trouble!

My tuppence on it is that he was a bit naive if he expected any other kind of response after putting that on twitter - can't see how it impacts on the likelihood of Blur doing anything, would imagine the rest of the guys have long been aware of his political leanings and differences of opinion and d...

Re: new Gorillaz film - Reject False Icons

Bought a ticket for Brighton - bit surprised at the cost, 50% more than I paid to watch the latest Tarantino movie at the same venue (small independent cinema, not IMAX or any special features). Not sure when tickets went on sale and I went for a slightly early screening (choice between 6pm or 8.30)...

Re: time for a blur career spanning best of...

Personally not sure we need another one, we had the best of, since which Blur released 2 albums, Midlife and 21, that almost every song has already appeared on Midlife and the best of says it all for me.

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

Interesting.. He confirms that Blur activity is purely schedule dependent and it's not a case of anyone in the band objecting to it. Sadly, that's not exactly what he says. Any future Blur activity will of course be schedule dependent, but he doesn't really say (nor can he) how any of the others wo...

Re: Graham in the studio with Duran Duran...

Rediscovered Duran Duran the last few weeks, such a brilliant band live and in the studio. Seven And The Ragged Tiger a fantastic album and hopefully Graham is going to be the type of influence that the guitarist Andy Taylor made to them as when he is not with them they are never as good. Can defin...

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

I am with you on that too... Nevertheless, wishful rather than rational thinking makes me remember they did see each other for a bit this year (before and during the Circus gig), so it's not entirely impossible they did rehearse a bit more and are prepared for a one-off something. I wouldn't rule o...

Re: What pisses you off at the moment?

I think I've mentioned it before on here but I've been suffering from insomnia. It's a result from a whole host of things but mostly my tinitus. I forgot I posted this, but I've been off the caffeine for about 6 months now and the clarity in my thoughts are overwhelming. Most of my troubles have go...

Damon didn't do any Parklife 25th anniversary gigs because of Brexit, as didn't want to celebrate Britishness with Brexit One more thing to love this guy for, imho.
