Re: New The Good, The Bad and the Queen album

Or about the difficult years when Graham left the Blur. Graxit.

Re: Gorillaz Humanz Disappointed Fans Thread

Hallelujah Money has grown on me a lot. Never thought I'd say that, and I don't think I'm the only one to have said that. I think it deserves its place.

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

The album has some nice bits. I particularly like the guitar in New World Towers. Lonesome street is like a bad MLIR Bside to me though, sorry if thats against popular opinion. I just cant stand 2 parts. Firstly, Damon singing that bit that goes 'or well it was' *shiver* And secondly, the sudden dr...

Re: Gorillaz Humanz Disappointed Fans Thread

Where did the official blur forums go? EMI shut them down just before The Magic Whip was released. Very little warning and no consultation. Such a shame. Veikko was kind enough to accept us all here and there was a mass migration . :lol: Even Tweedz made the move. :lol: I agree with John_d on We Go...

Re: B-Roads

Yes, I think it probably would have seen the light of day 1996 so guess it would have been a Blur release in a weird nether world after the TGE (and the film would have reflected that Blur I guess) but before the changes for ST. An interesting thought...

Re: U2

I gave Achtung Baby, Zooropa and Pop a re listen this afternoon. I think the '90s were their best period and to me Pop is so underrated as a album and one of my favourite albums. It's a shame they bottled it and came out the such a MOR follow up! Nice little documentary narrated by the late great D...

Re: GORILLAZ: Tour Thread

Well, Liam or Ian, Damon was definitely rocking the hands behind his back stance. I've never noticed him do it much before, so I did wonder if it a little cheeky nod to something?

Re: U2

Achtung Baby! was such a big album for me at the time. No need to apologise about the bump, that album and that song are true classics. You're right LouieLouie, it was the highlight of their career and what a time to pull it off. It effectively in ensured they had a future, both in terms of remaini...

Re: New The Good, The Bad and the Queen album

It wouldn't surprise me if TGTBATQ has almost by default become the band's name. I mean, it sort of makes sense. I know it wasn't ever a high profile release by Blur / Gorillaz standards, but why confuse the audience that will be aware of that name by going with something completely different for re...

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

Re: GORILLAZ: Tour Thread - The Graham Norton Show

I agree, We Got The Power was lacking in excitement, power and energy. Basically everything the album version contains. Disappointing, I wonder if their reason for playing that on UK television was just because Noel was a guest. Perhaps they were expecting Damon and Noel together on stage to genera...

Re: GORILLAZ: Demon Dayz Festival, 10th June

I reckon there's a good chance Graham might pop up as a special guest. Looking at her upcoming solo dates, Grace Jones doesn't have any shows that weekend, so it's not out of th question.
