Re: Gorillaz dream Collaborations

I'm on a massive Dexys binge at the moment. Kevin Rowland's passion in some of the live shows is awe inspiring - e.g: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXw1Bdt31RM&list=PL8a8cutYP7frRdcMJjBTR6CEOgiT6pnC9&index=3 Kevin Rowland would be an awesome Gorrillaz collaborator with the right song - in a simila...

Re: Humanz live?

Here's what I've ended up with - all readily available on youtube - though some not as individual tracks so needs some splitting up Sequencing tries to get a decent balance between 2D and non 2D tracks / High energy / slower building songs - works pretty well - It think it'll be my go-to instead of ...

Humanz live?

I was re-visiting Humanz, and there are some fantastic performances of those songs, that easily transcend the studio versions. Some of my picks are: The Demon Dayz Margate 2017 version of She's My Collar. The Vive Latino version of Charger The WFUV version of SMP I was looking for a broadcast qualit...

1. Demon Days 2. Plastic Beach 3. TNN 4. Strange Timez 5. Gorillaz 6. Humanz* 7. The Fall (*Humanz would be MUCH higher if it lost the interludes, and included Ticker Tape, The Apprentice, Sleeping Powder, and Out of Body instead of Carnival, SMP, Submission, and B&B.

Re: The Divine Comedy - new box set

I'm a massive fan. I love Office Politics. I can't seem to get into Foreverland though people rave about it.
Im also a huge fan of the Office Politics disc 2 which is the demos from Swallows and Amazons - it's an awesome album in its own right (you can hear it all on youtube),

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It sounds utter turd, hopefully the one they will release will be higher quality Do you mean from a production point of view? I have pretty bad tinnitus/hearing loss in one ear, I sometimes think it's a blessing that I can't hear every level of production perfection/imperfection. To me, this track ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

unreleased track with BECK just leaked!!! https://archive.org/details/gorillaz-ft.-beck-unreleased-track Can see why it didn't get released the vocal swapping sounds pretty bad Lots of people saying it's fake - what do we think? The opening lines flow very similarly to Feel Good Inc, and 'feels so ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

How Far? might be tweaked a bit by October's CD release, so it may grow ever more. Skepta's catchy on it, but it's alllll about that Tony Allen beat for me (RIP to the legend, and happy 80th bday!) Alright, enough Song Machine rambling for now... till September! ;) Do you think How Far will be on t...

It's Jarv Is - Beyond The Pale release day!

Surely we're all Pulp fans here? I pre-ordered this ages ago and forgot it was coming out today, landed in my inbox this morning and I haven't stopped listening yet. Some tracks would fit on Separations, some on Intro, a couple are more TIH, and 3 are new ground for Jarvis but still ace. Seriously, ...

Re: Is The Great Escape the worst Blur album?

Ultranol should replace Mr R's Q - instantly better album :) Ultranol is as cringy as Mr R's Q. The na na na's are like nails on a chalkboard. Agreed BUT Mr R's Q is basically just Country House again with different words - if that spot on the album (first song on 2nd side of the cassette btw) is r...

Re: Is The Great Escape the worst Blur album?

Hard to say 'worst', but imo their album of least merit (as an album) because it's the only one that shows little desire to progress their sound and grow - in many ways it's Parklife 2; the formula is working, give them more of that! I was so happy buying it on tape aged 15 from WHSmiths for £5.99 a...
