Re: Battle - song analysis/review

Good read yeah, I think certain parts do have a chill element, others come across pretty angry with lyrics and the wall of noise for this song. This is a style I wish Blur would return to if they did record again, Graham trying to scare the listener with his guitar, Damon spouting nonsense but good ...

Re: Ally Pally 20 years!!

I wasn't present unfortunately and the only thing I have from the time is the VHS of the show which the last time I watched all those years ago was a bit overused with the typical bendy picture top and bottom, but I have to agree Trouble in the Message Centre was amazing that night, and possibly the...

Re: Blur books/tab books

'The Great Songs of Blur' is a good one for pretty simple chords and plenty of songs to choose from. For more complicated tabulation, The Best of is pretty good, although not for beginners as I got this way back in late 2000 when I picked up my first ever guitar, never played one before then, just w...

Re: Unheard tracks

Wow. Yet they barely gave us any Think Tank rarities in the 21 box set. I can only imagine what other stuff is in the vaults. but nutter and piano shouldnt be release! very, very weak tracks. they said they recorded about 30 tracks. 14 from album, 2 from fc singles, 5bsides + 1 from box-sir elton-t...

Re: Unheard tracks

i really like to hear alternative version of crazy beat. without donald duck and different lyrics. ambulance (demo) will be also nice. and saturday-damon said it was to "poppy" to put it on TT. i liek to hear this catchy tune. Ambulance demo would have been worth hearing and I agree about hearing S...

Re: Blur books/tab books

The Great Songs of Blur is a pretty good chord book and has over 40 songs to it, most pretty easy to play ranging from songs from the first 6 albums, even has Young & Lovely, I still use mine a fair bit :)

Re: Andy Partridge Versions

I think Maybe I like his version of Sunday Sunday more, I like the album version but maybe I have listened to it too many times over the years and like the fresh sound of the Partridge version.

Re: Blur books/tab books

Not really sure myself, I remember being in a book shop back at the end of 95 (maybe 96) and reading through a basic sort of bio with a lot of photo's in it, remembering at the time it was a bit pricey as it never really told me anything I didn't already know at the time.

Re: Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots tour thread

I am really disappointed that no other UK dates have been announced, I thought they may follow but now we are approaching the end of September I feel it is getting more and more unlikely.

Re: Unheard tracks

I did feel the 21 boxset was a little lacking in demo's from the TGE, Blur & 13 era to be honest, would have loved to have heard more even if it wasn't full band demo's and just at the Damon idea stage.

Re: "Go Back" video released!

Great song and video indeed, I did hear it a few weeks back but forgot how good it was.
