Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

11 weeks in the Top 75 isn't that too shabby really. That's longer than Think Tank and the same amount of time as MLIR.

Re: The Worst Of

No one ever talks about the "Blur" theme to Sunnyside Farm (what's there to say tbh? It's shit). Its easily "their" worst song for me alongside Alex's Song and One Born Every Minute.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Jupiter & Okwess International were the best support band imo, but I enjoyed The Horrors and Metronomy too. Drenge not too much really. Am I the only person who checked out Kitty Davis & Lewis? I thought they were really good. I love old school blues, RnB. Same vibe as Vintage Trouble who I saw sup...

Re: Demon Days... Oh My God.

If he's already onboard with a new Gorillaz album then plus GBQ and his new musical, I'll be surprised if there's more Blur dates get added to the tour.

Quite weird that they're touring the Magic Whip less than they're tour of 2012 and 2013.

The Magic Whip is down to 56 from 36, in its tenth week. I reckon it'll have one more week and then drop off the charts.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations
