Re: Blur mix tape nostalgia

I liked to really mix my songs up, I put my favorites first but it was like an album track, a couple of b-sides, another album track, etc.

Re: Albums you've bought

I love that Emmerdale album.

I don't really buy physical releases anymore and I don't stream. I just buy mp3 from bandcamp or Amazon music. I put my music on Google Play.

Re: Blur mix tape nostalgia

I made all kinds of Blur Best Of tapes in the 90s, every 3rd release, album or single. It was fun.

Ringo Deathstarr self-titled. More shoegaze goodness.

Re: Blur remasters

Huh. I never noticed the different drum levels. I don't see it as disjointed, just different sides of the band.

Re: Graham's soundtrack for Netflix series 'I Am Not Okay With This'

Eh, I like a few songs, but it sounds very "dumbed down" to me. Most of the songs sound lazy, slow, repetitive. Definitely does NOT sound like a Coxon album, perhaps that's the point.

I've always wondered about this. Wouldn't the vocals be a separate track, meaning that the only reason it's there is an oversight during editing?
Yea they would be, like I said a bad edit that blended in or something.

Re: Error in Tender

Yea I heard it. Sounds either like a bad edit or Damon messed up. I'm surprised that was left on the final mix.

No Graham was not on Out Of Time that I know of. The only album track was Battery.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

Yet Think Tank is a fantastic album. That's a matter of opinion. The Graham influence is clearly missing and it suffers for it. Graham would not let a song like Jets be on an album. Out of interest, what makes you think that? I mean, Graham has a long interest in free jazz and plays the sax. It's o...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

I enjoy the album version but this is much better, Street again would have edited it down to a much tighter better version. I actually think the best thing Orbit ever did was his version of Under The Westway...not a popular opinion, if you don't like it go listen to 1992 again :lol: Street would al...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

YES! ^ This is what I wanted on the album, but got some mellow lo-fi biz instead. Thanks Orbit :roll: Street would have turned it into a single.

This is my first time seeing it on video, all I had before was a bootleg CD.
