So what was this? I had a look at the site and the majority of questions asked were dire. Not related to the band at all. Fake?
i'm guessing its official, something being done/trialled in a promoting context, but there's no chance the band are actively involved, not based on those answers

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I agree, NM. The songs are certainly no Brexit lecture although based on interviews leading up to the release, that's how the album was portrayed. Maybe management thought that would be a good way to sell albums? No idea, but dumb as hell. This album is an extension of the debut in regards to the f...

Thanks for the help there Lumaka, I'm guessing I won't be the only person getting an error message once you try to put the code in?

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

There's also Mumford & Sons' new album which on British iTunes is even higher than Little Mix (M&S - 1, Little Mix - 3). TGTBTQ debuted at 17th. Oh yeah, that'll sell tons. Prob 40-50,000. Just goes to show, chart positions are as much a factor of what else comes out in the same week as the number ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Yeah I'm a bit disappointed to have shelled out £90 for a pre-release that I wont get to hear within a month of release or before the gigs in December, but in context it's a case of first world problems really. Adding to the whole first world problems theme further I have spotify but wont pay for pr...

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

Any ranking system is always going to be somewhat arbitrary, especially when only out of 5. Would largely agree though, based on ER, Humanz and TNN that taking a star off might act as an appropriate step! That said, I'm assuming an album would have to be pretty incredible/universally loved to get 5/...

Re: Graham's solo tour 2018

Can't believe it's only a week away now.

I've actually got a pretty crazy week or so coming up Arctic Monkeys on Thursday, GC on Monday then flying out for Inter V Spurs on Tuesday, then that weekend I fly out to San Diego for a week's holiday. My life is normally so boring as well I swear!

Bit of a trek up from London but will be driving up with my daughter (my blur/damon/graham/gorillaz gig partner - when available!)

I'm also heading up from London, with no other UK dates announced I wasnt going to miss out.

Re: Likelihood of another Blur record

Well there's now an official Blur snapchat. Makes you think there must be something to promote in the future, seems a bit much effort to plug TGTB&TQ, although I guess there's solo Graham, new 'rillaz and apparently a best of vinyl reissue, even so seems a little too much effort given what we know t...
