I would take 15 Blur punk rock songs of Crazy Beat quality over Damon's other ventures of the last 15 years or so...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

YES! ^ This is what I wanted on the album, but got some mellow lo-fi biz instead. Thanks Orbit :roll: Street would have turned it into a single. This is my first time seeing it on video, all I had before was a bootleg CD. Exactly, Bugman is so brilliant here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG0Vp...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

....And don't forget the Blur punk ep live gig that was cancelled the day before, fan club invite, all very strange, lots of 2000+ Blur history we still don't the full story of.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

"it is heartbreakingly criminal that the potential of the musical partnership that is Damon and Graham has lain largely dormant for the last 20 years... " Yep I said this before, awful really...banal Gorillaz churning out forgettable gunk every other year, Damon hasn't put 100% into new Blur materia...

Re: Does anyone know who compiled Blur: The Best Of?

This ignoring of Popscene is alarming!

Blew me away when I first heard it, and the studio version is perfect...Never Clever on the other hand which was going to be the follow up, the studio version is all wrong...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

Yes 13 was a letdown after "Blur" for me, so excited to hear the new single after the previous brilliant "Beetlebum" and barnstorming "Song 2". Remember been very disappointed when I first heard Tender, its a great song, bit simple and goes on way too long which I had always said about Oasis singles...

Spend more time with blur damon!
Exactly the last time Damon put full effort into Blur is nearly 20 years ago, The Magic Whip only happened thanks to Graham...ffs more Gorillaz, total sub par every time...

The Universal

What an amazing song, I split up with my first long time girlfriend when this came out and it helped me through it so much, now the years have passed and thankfully British Gas have long since stopped using it, the song is simply one of the greatest ever! I don't think the "Clockwork Orange" video a...

Re: Graham talking about modern life is rubbish

Thanks Rich, it made me sad to type it as I feel we have missed out on some great music...Graham and Damon together is magic, maybe its to keep their friendship stress free, but I think we would all love a Blur album where they have spent a few months together in the studio like the 90s albums which...

Re: Graham talking about modern life is rubbish

1991,1993,1994,1995,1997,1999 - What a run of albums!! amazing...sadly Damon is either scared to tarnish his legacy or just not caring any more... He didnt put much effort into The Magic Whip and Graham not involved much with Think Tank...so the last time Damon and Graham actually spent months on an...
