Re: Babies Go Blur....

What’s also cool is that the group uses the same wind instrument throughout the album that Damon uses in songs like “tomorrow comes today” and “sunset coming on”.

It reminds me of, and I suspect is heavily 'influenced' by, Rockabye Baby:

Re: the Good, the Bad & the Queen - the end?

Completely agree with you. Merrie land is a brilliant album and my fave of the two.....didn’t like it at first listen. My experiences with listening to both albums though was juxtaposed. The first album I loved right away and like it more years later. The first time I listened to merrie land I loved...

Re: Amazing Story... need advice

Lol...I needed to read the fine print! I thought this story was recent as well!

I was wondering why Alex would even consider an attempt to travel to Florida during this time!

Re: Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

Even if Blur is my favorite thing and the first musical side of damon I discovered, I consider myself an Damon fan. I love gorillaz, tgtbtq, and his solo stuff. I wish he would release more solo albums, and less operas/african music though, before the covid i was thrilled with everything related to...

Wow....yes. My bad.

You all make an important point. Graham has had a prolific and beautiful music career as a solo artist.

Blur fan first and foremost or Damon Albarn fan?

I’m curious as to how many members here would say they are a blur fan first and foremost or rather consider themselves a Damon Albarn fan?

Despite my love of all of Damon’s side projects I’d say I’m a blur fan first.

Re: The Great Escape = the code for life

Your explanation of the entire album is spot on. Wasn’t the song “country house“ about a record exec who made Blur miserable? I’ve even heard Damon introduce the song in concert as being about “neurotic pop stars”. That said, as a working man who scraped together enough to escape the mandatory “drai...

The Great Escape = the code for life

I named my camp (the United States) equivalent of a country house “The Great Escape”. It’s a second home...a getaway. I’ve been here for a few months with my family during Covid.

I’ve listened to the album for the millionth time and The Great Escape seems like a road map on how to live your life.

Simon le bon and sushi THANK YOU BOTH!! You made my day!!! I have both concerts archived and for some reason I was going to the Olympics concert ‘12 and magic whip ‘15 thinking he said it there!

Really obscure Blur live concert question

Dear Blur family, I so hope all of you and your families are well. I have a really obscure question based on a blur live bootleg that’s driving me crazy: I have a track (as I’m sure many of you do) from a blur concert that Damon sings the last song (this is a low or the universal) and afterwards say...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Hello all....it's been a while since I've contributed anything to this board, but I need to say that I've come to feel after numerous listenings that MERRIE LANDis just a SUPERB album. Loved "Gun to the Head" when I first heard it as a single...was less enthused when I heard Merrie Land and the rest...
