Re: TENDER Single turns 16...

I listened to the debut play of it, one evening on Radio 1, they played it twice - I know this cos I tape-recorded it. I liked it when I first heard it and never fell out with it. It's certainly in my top 3 Blur songs nowadays. Live, it sounds so much more beautiful - I don't think I could tire of i...

Re: Start Of Starshaped

In my young teenager Blur Obsessed days, every Service Station I went to (with mum & dad, mostly on the M6) I wondered if it was THAT one! I'd look for Postman Pat and the blur sticker in the toilets!

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

And the mind gets dirty as you get closer to 50!
Go Out about jerkin the gherkin? wow! A bit weird, though Graham did sing he'd rather sleep with his right hand...So the magic WHIP could be a bit of the ole S&M? Corr, Blur have gone x-rated.

Re: Official blur forum to shut down

The forum should change it's name to The Blur Forum Elites. ;)
Nice to see familiar names and sigs, and also new names (unless maybe you've changed your Handle)

Re: Favorite instrumental track

Theme From Retro - definitely!( the vocals at the end was picked up by security as the band, or whoever entered a club "Uh what is that you have there? Looks like a recording device of some kind") The story goes something like that anyway. The Debt Collector at Number 2 and probably French Song at 3...

Re: Official blur forum to shut down

There was no need for ye olde forum to be removed completely. I appreciate that forums are now passe, but just leave it as an archive - for nostalgia at least. I remember when the whole forum was trimmed back in around 05...and they made out they were doing us a favour.

Re: Favourite Blur album

Bang is actually one of my favorite Blur singles ever. I know the band definitely doesn't agree :lol: Bang is by far one of the most underrated Blur songs, ever. I absolutely love it. That guitar riff is heaven. YES! Nothing wrong with Bang. In fact I don't think Leisure has any "bad songs" on it, ...

Re: Favourite Blur album

13 Blur Parklife / Modern Life is Rubbish Think Tank The Great Escape / Leisure We all know of the "life trilogy", but I have always thought it was a shame we didn't get a "numbers trilogy", imagine if we had two more follow ups to 13 produced by Orbit...with what D&G were doing in the post 13 years...

Under the Westway A little beauty...Though I find it difficult to belt my lungs out as I do with Tender & The Universal to a song about an ugly London bridge Fool's Day I was never keen when it first came out (they had a huge impact to make I guess) but I have warmed to it in the last couple of yea...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

so it's actually happening...after all those years of teasing...and then calling it a day. The first news I got wind of was an FB friend re-posting the Live Poster and I cringed thinking it'd be another greatest hits gig with a remote single. I'm very delighted for TMW - very delighted indeed. I thi...
