Re: BRIT Awards 2016: BLUR nominated as Best British Band

Beaten by Coldplay. One of the most boring bands of the last years imho. I don't think they're boring, they're kind of alright. I'm just a bit mystified by their level of success. It's a bit weird with me, I don't think they deserve to be as hated as they are, yet I don't think they deserve to be a...

Were never going to win.

Nice of Chris Martin to give them a shout out though.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Wow, can't believe it has been a year. I was at work,I had just put 6 music on and Out of time was playing. Then it finished and Steve Lamacq said 'that was Out of time from what we thought was Blur's last album until today's announcement.' My stomach turned and a wave of sweat came over me with exc...

Re: How would you improve Crazy Beat?

The song doesn't have many, if any redeeming features!

Dire lyrics, lazy musicianship, terrible Donald ducks and yeah yeah yeahs.

A real embarrassment to the band, Damon said as much himself.

My least favourite Blur song.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

A pause will do nicely, I think Damon has finally got over his urge to want to get away from Blur and is happy to embrace it, I'm sure we will get another album in a few years.

Re: unpopular blur opinions

I think Under the westway and the Puritan are great songs and would improve The magic whip if they replaced I Broadcast and Ong Ong.

I Broadcast is terrible!

Re: BLUR DOCUMENTARY: New World Towers

I agree with the mixed emotions on here. I will get it because I am always interested in the band and what they have to say. However, given the fact there was The Magic Whip documentary(which was a really good watch!) I don't see the need for this? Too be honest, I'm really not that excited about an...

Re: Gig: Córdoba, 10 Oct

Wow, what a beautiful version of Caravan. Loved that!

I wonder who's idea it was to play that? Must have been Graham's?

Re: Gig: Córdoba, 10 Oct

Caravan is a really interesting choice, great song!

Always wanted to hear Ambulance with Graham playing on it, maybe there is hope yet!

Re: The Magic Whip: 4 Months On

Well, I have to say that after 4 months I love the album!! When it was first released I was slightly disappointed as I always expect perfection from Blur, even though that is unattainable. However, I soon fell in love with the album and at this stage I definitely think it is in my top 3 albums.(It w...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Yeah, the album is standing the test of time for me!

The only track that really isn't cutting it for me now is 'I broadcast', skip it a lot.

I never got the impression that Damon had an addiction? Thought he was just more of a dabbler!
