Re: Demon Days... Oh My God.

Incredible album, but: one that I don't find myself listening to much nowadays strangely. I should probably rectify that. Every Planet, Last Living Souls, Demon Days among some of the best tracks Damon has ever written; and O Green World and Kids With Guns live are unstoppable. I remember O Green W...

I remember huddling under a tree to avoid the rain when we got there but it had stopped by mid-afternoon.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I've been told that Blur originally wanted Beck to support them but Beck had already committed to supporting The Strokes as they were booked before Blur. Damn...Blur AND Beck would have been amazing! I still think they were both gonna support Blur but BST got greedy and split it over 2 nights. Not ...

Mile End - It was 20 years ago today

Just realised today marks the 20th Anniversary of Mile End.
Fantastic day all round.
Was anyone else there?

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Blur are probably the only band in a position to step into the slot at such a late stage. But I think they'll just re-jig the existing line-up and give it to Florence.
They're big fans of her and have said in the past she was a future headliner.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Hopefully they pulled the plug when they realised what a bunch of tight arsed bastards they were dealing with. Can't believe they'd flog them all off for a minimum donation so low. People should be ashamed gloating about their bargain £7.50 tickets. On the other hand if BST would like to donate a si...

Re: Smoggy appreciation thread

I took great pleasure helping him get hold of some drunken dickhead to throw out who was kicking off and lashing out down the front at Wolverhampton in 2012.
He's a star.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Looking at the map for blur there is a security barrier making a front pit, Might be wristbands for the first few thousand people. I hope so. That was why I paid extra tenner for priority. Get in early, get a wristband and relax. Then not put up with a load of pissheads forcing there way past me to...

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

I need to work out how to get this app as I can't find all the times online. I want to know who's playing and where as I'll keep missing the things I want to see. Looks like a cool set-up of stages. The bands announced are spread very thinly across the 3 stages with huge time gaps between. Seems a ...

Re: Concert - Hyde Park

Awful line-up. Really thought some more well known established acts would have been added.
I paid extra for the priority entry in case there is a sectioned off bit near the front so I can get in it. So I've got to be there for midday. Gonna be a long afternoon.

Re: Blur on TFI Friday special on 12th June

It really was essential viewing at the time. Captured the whole period of Cool Britannia and the late Britpop into 'dadrock' era perfectly. Lost its way later on as the music scene got worse and no longer felt as relevant, plus Evans taking a backseat with guest presenters. Great to see it back as a...

Re: Blur in TFI Friday Special?

Black Grape have just reformed so I'm sure they'll be on as there's a convenient gap in their tour that night. I think the final straw that led to the live delay being put in place was after they did a cover of Pretty Vacant. It was full of effing and jeffing. The camera cut back to Chris Evans shak...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I'd rather have it 2/3 full than resort to giving rest of tickets away for next to nothing to casuals and cheapskates. Be so annoyed if they do that fiver trick to get rid of remaining stock. Atmosphere will be even worse full of drunken nobs with no real regard for music.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I still can't work out why the Blur date cost way more than all the other nights. And still no other decent acts added to the bill :?
