Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

I long for the old days when you'd hear a lead single off a forthcoming album, a few weeks later you could buy said single, another few weeks after that you'd buy the album. A tour would follow. These days you can stream most of an album 3 months before you can physically buy it, and singles don't r...

Re: Graham on the new Duran Duran album

Just got a ticket for Duran Duran doing an intimate hometown gig in Birmingham in 2 weeks. Hopefully Graham will show up there too.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Looks like its definitely all go for the O2 show now all restrictions will be lifted in 2 weeks.
Should be a very emotional celebration after 18 months of no gigs.
Has anyone recieved their tickets yet?

Glastonbury I-Player

Lots of fantastic old Glastonbury performances on I-Player at the moment. Including 35 minutes of the Blur set from 1994. Really good quality after years of ropey off-air recordings. Brought back a lot of happy memories of my 1st Glastonbury. And remembering the stench of the hot steam rising in the...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I'm starting to wonder if the O2 show will end up being a 20th Anniversary playthrough of the debut as opposed to Song Machine.

Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

£20 to watch the Glastonbury stream. Dunno if I'll bother yet. 5 hours long, but I don't expect it'll be more than a couple of tracks per artist. Apart from bloody Coldplay again who'll no doubt get a full set.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Well I finally got my Deluxe Almanac and CD. Only had a quick flick thru book, it really is a hefty tome. But I have finally got to listen to the album. Very impressed.

Thought it was brilliant. They really pulled it off. The new stuff sounded and worked so much better live.

Damons acting debut

I'm sure I read years ago that Damon made his big screen acting debut in The Fourth Protocol in 1987.
Having never seen it I recorded it on Talking Pictures last night, but I couldn't spot him anywhere.
Any ideas?
