Re: RIP Tony Allen

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but Damon recently gave a touching interview with Afropop Worldwide about Tony: https://afropop.org/articles/damon-albarn-on-tony-allen

Re: B-Roads

I've always found it rich indeed that the few who've had access have been so sanctimonious about "protecting the band's reputation" and "honoring the band's wishes" -- but only after watching it themselves, and in some cases (cough, Black Book) even directly profiting off of it. Well, I hope they fe...

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

I got tickets to the Paris show the day they went on sale, and I've just learned that one of my friends is getting married that same weekend... :cry: So if it happens that I'm dejectedly offering them up for resale here next spring, you can be sure that they're coming from a real fan, and a very sa...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

I've always wondered why there didn't seem to be as much love for "Northern Whale" -- it's easily one of my favorites. Really bummed to have missed it live, but glad to hear it now!

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

I made it to both of the NYC shows last week and wanted to take a minute to express my deep and sincere appreciation for what turned out to be far and away the best 26ish hours, musically, I've had in a long while. I had never seen Graham perform outside of Blur before, certainly not in such an inti...

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

I'm sure some of you have heard already, but Graham treated us to a charming version of "Red Necks" last night here in NYC (video: https://youtu.be/7onpaUj-2J4 ). Ever the slyly knowing sort, he afterwards commented something to the effect of, "Some of those lyrics aren't quite as acceptable nowaday...

Best Days - gem of a cover by Sean Nelson of Harvey Danger

Sean Nelson, singer-songwriter of the sadly defunct Harvey Danger (ahem, "I'm not sick but I'm not well..."), put out an excellent solo LP in 2013 called Make Good Choices: http://reallyrecords.bigcartel.com/product/sean-nelson-make-good-choices It's truly a wonderful album, and I can't recommend it...

It's been a great year for Blur-related music journalism. Shame the band's official social media team isn't more up on this sort of thing.

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

I found the film rather boring, overall, and left the theater wondering why it was even made in the first place. We've already heard the basic story of The Magic Whip's genesis ad nauseam, and "New World Towers" adds very little to it. (The only mildly interesting factoid I learned is that "I Broadc...

I caught the NYC showing a few days ago. Very curious to hear what other people think.

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

Observations / impressions / reflections, a couple of weeks later: - The two Blur songs Madison Square Garden had playing over the PA system in the merch / ticket window area before and after the show: Song 2 and Crazy Beat. Don't shoot the messenger! - I am one of those people that gets inexplicabl...
