Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Only in vinyl form. In record shops. I bought Sleeper's two 7" releases on coloured vinyl in my local record shop on Cowley Road. I was hoping TGTB&TQ would do the same as with gorillaz last year. Sadly not. To me it's not an issue but clearly it is for other people. Having said that it is nice to ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Do singles really exist anymore? I know in the 90's it was typical of having a lead single followed by 2-3 more singles over the course of the year. The artists I listen to either drop the whole album all at once or release songs as and when they make them and overtime this then becomes a collection...

Re: Parklife 25 - Absolute Radio Audio Documentary

They are really going heavy on this 25 year anniversary thing.

Anyway here's a quiz if you want to try it. Tougher than I thought I only got 17/25.

Re: Parklife Demos '93

This is what I am referring to. And yes I never heard the bass in it before.

I think the person who curated this list probably looks for the emotive value in songs above all else.
Yes I think you might be right, OTWTTC sounds like quite a simple song (but has the potential to catch a chord emotionally).

Re: Top 10 Blur songs (from Stereogum)

These things are obviously always subjective but I think people just pick left field songs to make themselves look/feel a bit more special (I've probably done it in the past).

Drunk? Brain issues? What the fuck are you guys slandering about?
Have you not watched the videos? Slurring his words, hopefully he's just drunk and it's nothing to worry about.

Re: France yellow vest protests

I don't think that politicians from any party, in any country, are comfortable about 'Brexit'. They see themselves as the power that decides things. It has pulled the rug from under their feet - they didn't expect the UK electorate to vote out. I guess if there's anything positive about the whole t...

France yellow vest protests

I'll admit I've been a little off the news recently as it generally makes me angry but it's good to get others perspective on things. I think we are (largely) an intellectual bunch on this forum and I believe everyone should have a say so let's see how this goes. This is the bbc website covering the...

The jumpers are going for £500+. I'd be very surprised if someone paid that much.
