Re: Question about backing vocals on 'Tender' outro

It's 'heal me' in all three of those clips.

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.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The funny thing about the whole Blur or Gorillaz debate is that we have both. The last time Blur played together was March 2019. We might not get them both, all of the time, but think about all those people who would dearly love The Smiths, Talking Heads, REM, The Jam, Led Zeppelin, Genesis with P G...

Re: Don't bomb when you are the bomb

Nah, it was trailed in the press weeks before it came out. I was away in New York at the time and had time to prime an ex-girlfriend to get up at 4am in the morning and go and queue for it outside Resident Records in Brighton. Agree it was a limited release for Record Store Day and thus not a conve...

Re: Don't bomb when you are the bomb

Don't Bomb was intentionally released with no indication that it was actually by Blur, with this whole "white label" thing. I wouldn't call it a single. From what I recall, it nicely added some confusion to the questions of activity and musical direction of the band in that period, perhaps delibera...

Re: Don't bomb when you are the bomb

I don't know why you've compared it to colours, what's colours got to do with anything? What about....hmmm lets say I got Law. I got Law was a bside, is definitely a demo but it's not a white label it had the bands name on it. They were happy to release that. The bugman remixes were pretty awful. R...

Ah, that's a very beautiful little cover version. Great tweaks to the melody.

Re: Question about backing vocals on 'Tender' outro

Pretty sure it's 'Heal me', as you suggest.

Re: addiction and blur

Bizarre terminology throughout this. A smacky and a pisshead? Addiction is painful, non-trivial, compulsive and complicated. Equally, someone isn't automatically addicted, much less a 'smackhead', if they have at one point or other used drugs recreationally. That isn't to play down the impact which ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It sounds fairly horrible; presumably a very early demo.

Re: B-Roads

I think it’s the fact that a portion of Blur fans on here have seen it. That’s why the rest of us feel a bit hard done by. And given the fact they have seen it, it makes little sense why a few more of us can’t. If it had never been seen by anyone out with the the filmmakers, the band and their imme...

Re: The "I Make Music" thread

Me and my pal Pete made a record over the course of the last few months; it just went live on Spotify today.

Re: B-Roads

I don't get it. If the band don't like it and are keen to suppress it, why on earth should someone leak it? We don't have a moral right to access anything Blur do, regardless of their feelings - better that it stays unwatched until such time as (you never know) they authorise a re-edit and make a fi...

Re: Letters from an old friend

It was intended as a metaphor for Damon's workrate and relationship with his fans, so this isn't really off-topic, but never mind.
