Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

I can't add much that hasn't already been said. The negs: The barrier incident, which seemed to affect the show up until Trimm Trabb. It really felt at times during the first hour that they were rushing through to catch up on the time they'd lost. The last time I'd seen so little interaction with th...

I'm pretty sure the booking page said they'd be posted out a week before.

That's what I was thought! When I think of greyhounds, I think of Parklife!
:lol: Funnily enough we have two retired greyhounds and they look just like the two on the cover of 'Parklife'... except older, calmer and much much lazier!

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

Yeah, Blackpool's not as bad as its reputation and no worse than many other English towns/cities.

More to the point, how many are going to the Blackpool show dressed in blue and red???? ;) :lol:

30th anniversary of the Bradford City fire - 11th May 2015

Today's the 30th anniversary of the fire at the Bradford City football ground. It was meant to be a day of celebration as we'd just secured promotion to the old division 2 as champions. Celebration turned to tragedy and on that day 54 Bradford City fans and 2 Lincoln fans who went to watch a footbal...

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

Yep, gonna be at Blackpool with my wife :) We only live an hour away (in Yorkshire) so we won't be staying over, but there are some decent hotels/b&bs at the north end of Blackpool. Looking on Tripadvisor the Ibis Styles gets good reviews for £50 a night for a twin, and it's about a 5 minute walk fr...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour (UK SHOWS ANNOUNCED)

Blackpool tickets bought. £8.60 fees for 2 tickets with postage on top of that is disgraceful though.

Re: Best Album Opener?

It has to be Beetlebum for me, then probably For Tomorrow. Honourable mentions to Stereotypes and Lonesome Street.

Wasn't it Terry Hall who declared Stereotypes as the best album-opener ever?

Re: Top 20 Most Downloaded Blur Songs

Interesting article. UTW was initially only available as a download, so I assume that's why it's there. I still remember that sickening feeling of having to install iTunes to get it. <shudders>

I'd love to know what the next 20 were.
