Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

That and the 2009 and 2012 tours kinda diluted the excitement (not for me, but for the general public). If 2015 had been Blur's first reunion, the anticipation for the Magic Whip would have been much higher.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I'm not going to buy another digital copy of OO as a stand alone song, purely to improve it's chart position. I did with Go Out, because it came a long time before the album, with the others being released/leaked quite close to the album release. exactly. Which is precisely the reason why they NEED...

Re: Ong Ong - Single

I think most fans would. If Blur formed now, we wouldn't have all their awesome b-sides which is what, another 40 songs?

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

It'll be nominated at next year's Brits and hopefully Mercury music prize which will boost sales.

Re: Ong Ong - Single

I'm quite surprised it hasn't had a 7 inch release. Under the Westway got both a CD and a vinyl release.

Re: Ong Ong - Single

Chuffed to bits that Ong Ong has made the Radio 2 main playlist. They're never gonna get on Radio 1 these days so that's brilliant

I wish the sun had set. The visuals would have looked so much better.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I'm very pleasantly surprised that Madison Square Garden tickets sold so quickly. Isn't that a huge arena, like the O2 in London? Awesome.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

The gig was brilliant and definitely better than Hyde Park 2012. The crowd was noticably smaller which made it more enjoyable for me. Less crowds is always a good thing, up to a point. The sound was much better and clearly being able to play new, fresh material galvanized the band. Ong Ong is up the...

Re.: support acts.

I like what I've heard of Kitty Davis & Lewis and Drenge (especially the latter. Killing Joke meets grunge) but the rest not really fussed.

Florence and the Machine rather than Foo Fighters. I'd stay in my tent for that one

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I don't think Blur should do it. They've already headlined twice in their career plus they're already doing Isle of Wight. If they could book AC/DC that would be brilliant.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Fair play to those who got cheap tickets. I did exactly the same last summer when I saw Black Sabbath et al. But BST are absolute bell ends. But after this debacle, unless Led Zeppelin or David Bowie plays there, I won't be going to Hyde Park for a gig again. Judging from the recent Facebook activit...

Re: Blur on TFI Friday special on 12th June

I fucking hated the Word. Terry Christian- massive, massive twat.

Fair play though, they did do Sepultura, Nirvana and (I believe) Oasis' British TV debuts.

Re: Ong Ong - Single

I love the new video. Especially Alex trying to fit through the door in his costume :roll:

I wish they'd released this one first really.
