Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Going by the calibre of The Who support acts I'm starting to think maybe The Strokes and Beck date should have just been merged with the Blur one. They're gonna have to add some pretty big acts to the bill to justify charging way more than the other days. Beck, The Strokes and Blur would have been ...

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

Nah I hope they stay away from Parklife completely. The 2012 shows were very Britpop heavy down to the set design and general "feel" of the shows, minus the 100 Club. I get that because it was 2012 and the Olympics were here in England but now it's time to leave it behind and focus on the better mu...

Re: Discussions/Predictions about TMW's potential for succes

I think we really need to accept at this stage they are never going to be more than a part time pursuit now. And the promotional activity will reflect that. This isn't 1995 That's just what I think. The Magic Whip is more like a gift for fans. It was a quite spontaneous thing to record and the band...

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

I reckon the Hyde Park gig will be a 2 hour show (as 2009 and 2012) and that's around 25 songs (unless the new ones are 15-minute epics...). I really hope they play a lot of songs from The Magic Whip, 8-9 songs hopefully. I don't think they'll play all 12 songs, even for the 13 - "we'll play our ne...

Just thinking back to how good Oily Water sounded in 2009. I'd gladly welcome that back into the set.

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

I would love to see:

Ambulance
Swamp Song
Bugman
Trouble In The Message Centre
Movin' On
Country Sad Ballad Man
Coping

I think it's time to lose:

Parklife
Country House
Jubilee

Re: Poll: Favourite Graham Album?

Too many brilliant ones. Happiness in Magazines for me (great memories) closely followed by A+E.

Although sometimes, there is nothing better than relaxing to The Spinning Top.

I was thinking exactly this... might be under contract from BST to hold off announcing gigs for a period of time to increase ticket sales

Re: 'Go Out', and radio station playlists...

Normally have 6 Music on in the mornings and honestly haven't heard it once. The thing is, it's not a reflection on the song, it is more a reflection on the radio stations in question. I remember almost exactly the same thing happening when Stylo came out, it got barely any airplay from what I recal...

Re: Brit Awards 2015: Damon nominated

I would say there is an absolute 0% chance of Damon winning tonight, through no fault of his own. It is inconceivable that Sam Smith or Ed Sheeran won't win.

Re: The 'definitive' Think Tank

And yes, I'd keep Jets. Very underrated song, arguably one of Alex's best basslines. The sax was Blur going to a completely different place. +1 Agreed, Jets has been one of my favourite songs on the album ever since I first heard it. Simple adjustment for me: Swap out Crazy Beat & Gene By Gene for ...
