Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Or, alternatively, he's doing whatever he likes, and that's cool.

Can imagi...

Re: Super State by Graham Coxon?

Just saw that, looks good. Graham is wonderful. Interesting to see one of the key musicians in Blur having such an original idea, meanwhile. A vaguely dystopian, fantastical excursion into high-concept pop, accompanied by comic-book visuals. Where've I heard that before... Looking forward to Dave's ...

Re: Blur have vague plans on a new reunion - The Times Oct 2020

Intrigued by 'there's a lot of material'. I wonder if that means Blur were recording new stuff while they reheased and toured TMW.

Hope so. I expect that what he means is that there are lot of songs on his iPad which he's mentally earmarked for Blur.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I've not really gone back to it, despite being very very happy that it exists. Go Out, Lonesome St, Ghostship, Ong Ong, Pyongyang and Ice Cream Man are keepers. The rest are all much of a mid-tempo muchness to my mind (said with the utmost respect for the wonderful playing and emotion imbued by the ...

Re: Ray Davies - The Deal (& Look Inside America)

I've always meant to explore the Kinks on an album by album basis; I'm sure it's one of the great blanks in my musical knowledge - I know pretty much every Rolling Stones, Bowie, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan LP backwards and inside out, but I still gravitate towards specific songs by The Kinks rather than wh...

Haha, that's a lovely song. Will listen to a few more of Mark's songs, that's a cracker.

Ray Davies - The Deal (& Look Inside America)

The Blur/Kinks interface is pretty well known, but enjoyed a tip in this month's MOJO when I read it this morning; in a nice piece on Ray Davies, Danny Eccleston highlights Ray's 'The Deal' from his 2017 LP AMERICANA (which I've skimmed in the past, but missed this one). Just gave it a listen and it...

Re: Favorite Song Machine track so far

Love Aries, Desolee and Pac Man but Friday 13th is the pick of the bunch for me so far; gloriously loose, dubby, dreamy pop and a beautiful vocal.
