Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Anyone by any chance know if there'll be a front pit, or is it just a free-for-all?

Me and my brother can't decide whether to get there as soon as doors open or not!

Re: Near misses

Only seen them once, at Wolves 2012, but the whole thing was a near miss haha. As I hadn't signed up in time for the pre-sale, I ended up begging the old forum for a code, until finally someone from America kindly gave me one the night before it went on sale! Once I got that, I had my next hurdle......

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

That's it. My Terracotta Heart is my favourite... it's ridiculously good. Drums that send you into a trance, creative bass, graham on guitar, and Damon's falsetto. What's there to not like?!

Re: Favourite side of The Magic Whip

Such hard work... if Mirrorball, Ghost Ship and I Broadcast were on one side, that'd be the one!

Pains me to say it, but he's right. Still, it's good. Just feels like the live version was better, less is more...

My god, Mirrorball is perfect.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip (iTunes Stream Now Live)

Alex 10/10 on Thought I Was a Spaceman. The album version of I Broadcast has grown on me a little. New World Towers, again so so so different to the live version, can't work out whether for better or worse haha

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Damon said in the press conference that there was no autotune in the album, so you can only take his word for it. I can't help but be slightly disappointed with the studio I Broadcast, it's still brilliant don't get me wrong, but it just doesn't hit the heights of the live versions. It kind of jogs ...

Re: Blur live on Later With Jools Holland on April 14 & 17

Dissertation is due in fourteen hours, I've 2000 words still to write, and this gets dropped just as I'm getting into the thick of it... This band will forever be the death of me! I Broadcast is such an outrageous tune, in my opinion it is definitely their best 'banger'. Alex is my hero, only he wou...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Some songs simply cannot be dropped in my opinion... Beetlebum, For Tomorrow, This is a Low, Coffee & TV, Tender, Song 2 and Girls & Boys will never not be part of a blur gig (except, of course, if they ever did a b-sides gig or singles night again). I don't know how anyone can get sick of any of th...

Re: There Are Too Many Of Us

So annoying, because I've pre-ordered the album on iTunes, it won't let me buy the song, and it won't just download automatically! I want it right now! hahaha.

Re: There Are Too Many Of Us

I just hope that the album has more Alex! He feels subdued in the two TMW songs up to now for me. I can imagine this being brilliant live though...
