RIP Keith Flint

Sad day.succumbed to suicide. Saw him and the band twice back in the day. An absolute brilliant frontman. Knebworth '96 was a great memory https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/keith-flint-dead-prodigy-legend-dies-at-49/ar-BBUlABN?li=BBoPRmx&OCID=ansmsnnews11 R.I.P Keith https://m.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Blur-related attractions in London?

Seeing as it's the 25th anniversary of parklife in April.

Re: Blur-related attractions in London?

After seeing the Hyde Park Parklife bench in the "How Parklife came to be" thread, I thought I'd revive this old thread and share my list of "blur to-do's" and see if anyone had any new/updated thoughts. I've already been by Studio 13 a few times (lucked out with my airbnb, it was only a 2 minute w...

Re: How did Parklife come to be?

OK - so I dug out my copy of the Parklive 4xCD/DVD book and had a look in there for any mention of the Parklife/Hyde park connection - and - nothing... By the way, the CD book cover (and all the associated event artwork) always struck me as a bit weird. The rustic image behind Britannia sitting on ...

Re: How did Parklife come to be?

also I think part of the album was inspired with Damon reading Martin Amis novel London Fields back in 1993.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Predictably, the hype for the album (and band) has significantly dropped since it was released. Zero promotion, just announcements for shows. Just like post-Humanz and post-The Now Now. Same tactics used for this album yet Damon retains the same management. Despicable. Totally agree. If it wasn't f...

Mark, try to refresh seetickets page, London tickets seem to appear and disappear...
Yep, doing that and then it's throwing me out. Odd. Not too worried as I had an awesome time in Hackney. Just a bit confused.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Thanks lumaka and Neal Zeal! I'm excited to see the Palladium. I'm gonna try to get tickets as close to the front as possible, but either way I'll be happy. And I'm tempted to buy a ticket for Liverpool as well, as I have no class on Fridays while I'm in London, and it's a good excuse to visit Live...
