Sat n...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I bought the green vinyl and indeed just bought it a second time so that I can get into the signing at Rough Trade on Thursday (check the GBQ FB page for the link)

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Holy shit this album is good.

First play through: Lady Boston, Truce of Twilight and Ribbons are the standout songs for me

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I think Gun To The Head is great. Makes me think of Village Green Preservation Society.

Really optimistic about the album from the two songs we’ve had so far

Also the possibility BBC cancelled it due to a problem on their end?

Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

I love it

Can’t help but get some Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino vibe from it. Maybe it’s the way the lyrics are delivered

Wonderful... get the feeling these will be small capacity though so hope they sneak tickets out for fans before the proper album announcement

Bloody hell that was good

This band is incredible... not many acts can pull off moving between the likes of Garage Palace, M1A1, Latin Simone, and Saturnz Barz all in the same gig

Re: Marks out of 10 for Now Now

9... one of the strongest collections of songs Damon has done for a while and they actually work together rather than sounding like a playlist. Short, sweet and consistent Humanz... 7... it's ok, I didn't hate it, but too many collaborations and there is filler (Carnival, SMP, Charger - the last two...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

Holy shit this album is good. I managed to avoid everything except Humility and Lake Zurich before release. There are some absolutely top tier tracks on here which are up there with the best Damon has ever done. For an album done in such a short period of time, I am completely floored. Love it

Re: Damon & Graham, Poetry Live

Damon looks great for 50, man. Youthful looking face and skin, pretty slim still. That's without taking into account he was a smoker for what, 20 years at least, has always and still is a big drinker, was a heroin addict, still seemingly smokes pot, and has spent basically his entire life living in...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

This is really, really good.

High hopes for Gorillaz getting back on track after Humanz...
