Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The Magic Whip is maybe the 3rd or 4th best Blur album, with no identifiable or lasting major hit single, supported by a handful of medium sized gigs. Demon Days and Plastic Beach both sold a heap of records, contained multiple hits, and led to mammoth world tours of arenas and festival headline se...

Re: Girls and Boys reaches 100 million milestone on Spotify

On Melancholy Hill originally was meant to be a TGTBTQ song Thanks - didn't know this - but now I can hear how Paul's stuttering dubby base would have worked wonderfully with this track 🙂 They played it in 2011 at Coronet, London. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crkw9pDHwzg http://vblurpage.com/gig...

Re: Girls and Boys reaches 100 million milestone on Spotify

They all come from the same person the end is just different. There's blur demos that became Gorillaz tracks and Democrazy could have been used either side. On Melancholy Hill originally was meant to be a TGTBTQ song, theres so many cross overs because they come from the same place it just depends h...

Re: Girls and Boys reaches 100 million milestone on Spotify

I can't remember the term but in business there's major benefit to working with people you wouldn't naturally. The idea is that if you work with people that are very similar to you, the job would appear easy because everyone is agreeing with each other but you wouldn't learn or get the best result. ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Thanks for those explaining it better than I ever could... It just really grinds my gears when people state that their music taste is a fact and correct I've been on this board and the official one long enough to know that no one agrees to each other music tastes, that's the beauty of it. No need to...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The Magic Whip was an unexpected treat but I think it was mixed - Go Out, Lonesome Street are retro souding and unfortunately banal songs. I loved Ong Ong, My Terracotta Heart, Pyongyang, and Ghost Ship. Overall Demon Days, Plastic Beach and the first TGTBATQ are better albums than The Magic Whip. ...

Ghost Ship could be a Gorillaz song and by virtue of that alone has a more contemporaneous sound and potentially wider reach than most of Blur's back catalogue.
I got shot down for saying that last year :roll:

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It's also important to bear in mind these are individuals with their own lives to lead. They don't exist to make Blur albums for us! Yup this is true. They can do what they want, they've earned it :D I think there's a good amount of examples where bands have managed to keep going for a long time, e...
