Re: Favorite tracks: The Great Escape

I can't pick just 5, 20 years since TGE I'm hoping a few songs from this album will make into the setlist other than Country House and The Universal, which I do enjoy hearing live. Probably my 2nd or 3rd favouite album of theirs, liking 13 a lot more recently.

Re: Mojo4music.com

I was hoping we'd have scans of this by now as it seems to be an interesting interview from what I've heard. Might just have to head into WHSmiths at the station later and do some speed reading, or just buy it and not be such a tightwad... :P

Re: Lonesome Street

Although I'd have quite liked a video that I could show to my friends that says "BANG! Blur are back!," I like Blur in part because they are not desperately trying to part of the mainstream and have always seem to have done things their own way, and this is no doubt better than the band hand out ice...

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

Looks fantastic, a couple of different ones from Great Escape and 1992 I'd really look forward to hearing. I guess a few will be taken out between now and summer but I hope they remain!

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I'm hopeful that the album will hit number 1 (I can't see anything that would trouble it released that week or earlier in April in the UK at least). Lonesome Street as a single, top 20 would probably be an achievement even with a proper music video, airplay, physical copies etc, although a top 10 co...

Re: Favourite song out of the 3 officially released?

1) There are too many of us
2) Go out
3) Lonesome street

Lonesome street hasn't clicked with me as instantly as the other two, although it is still enjoyable enough. I'll be sure to give it a few more listens before the day is out.

Re: Lonesome Street

Best start to a Monday I've had for some time! A big shout out to whoever cancelled the Japanese gig. Recorded in only 5 days too. Amazing.

Re: The Idiot Box.

I remember watching the first episode of Jam and feeling incredibly disturbed. Then really getting into it.

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

Imagine if they toured think tank again and rerecorded so Graham was on all tracks. Imagine that.. As it is my favourite Blur album (so far!) I would certainly like to see that. Although I'd settle for live versions of at least a couple more Think Tank tracks with Graham, having only heard Out Of T...

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

Yeah, bit annoyed I missed out on the Think Tank tour, but they didn't play anywhere near me at the time. Battery In Your leg, On The Way To The club, Good Song, Sweet Song perhaps? Crazy Beat?! Get Graham to work his influences as he has on The Magic Whip and it might work!

Re: There Are Too Many Of Us

I agree too! I got excited when I saw them as I thought Blur might have announced some proper singles with B-Side/s.

Re: Secret London gig, March 20

Well I've tried not to listen to the whole thing, but cracked and listened to a couple of clips after comments here. I'm thinking this will be one of my favourites from them, can't wait to have a physical copy in my hands, seems so long since picking up Think Tank from HMV in release week...
