Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

What a great video.

That just shot right up there as one of my favorite performances of Tender.

Re: Order The Magic Whip's Tracklist

I like "I Broadcast" as the second track, as it seems like most Blur albums have a punky track following the epic opener. You've got "Advert" on MLIR, "Song 2" (of course), "Bugman" on 13, etc. I do think NWT brings things down a little bit. It's interesting how great an effect track orders can have...

Re: Blur in NYC: Q104.3 Radio Session, 3rd May - 9pm ET

Wow.... that was really the whole of it.

EDIT: Could they be saving the live tracks for a "special edition" or some later release?

Re: Blur 'Converse' Show Live In Brooklyn, 1st May

Thanks for the reports, guys!

This gig alone may not have any bearing on whether they play more US shows, but I'm really glad it was a good one anyway. They need to get over the idea that the US = hostile reception.

Re: The Needle Drop's review of The Magic Whip

I dunno, "The Magic Whip" sounds like a solid collection of songs to me. Interesting way to start off, though, with "Lonesome Street," a lushly orchestrated track. You'd think that the first Blur album with Graham Coxon in 16 years would start off with at least a hint of guitar. Then "New World Towe...

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

I thought he looked quite nervous when performing Mr.tembo on kimmel last year. Which is funny, 'cause I think of Ong Ong and Mr. Tembo as being in the same ballpark of "dead simple, hooky pop song." I thought the performance was a good one, and the band seemed in high spirits. Fallon did a good jo...

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

This is only one data point, but there's a US record store selling The Magic Whip vinyl on sale at a bargain $14.99!

Retail price is $34.99, I believe. Product not moving?

Of all the places... who knows, maybe it's a great interview.

I've only ever listened to the Madvillainy album, but I loved it.

Always meant to listen to his other projects.

Great interview! (and thanks for asking my question)

I like Dave's response to the Orbit questions... diplomatic as always.

Re: Blur 'Converse' Show Live In Brooklyn, 1st May

As I investigate the options available to me as a poor student without a car, it's dawning on me that there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to make this gig.

This better not be the only US gig, Blur, you hear me?

Brooklyn, huh?

So close, yet so far away.

Definitely going to try for the tickets, though.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

So I went to my local record store to buy the first new Blur album in 12 years..... And they didn't have it. :o They barely have any new CDs nowadays. I'm not sure how they stay in business, honestly. I figured that it's morally right (and makes me feel like a good person) to support local business,...

Re: WatchMojo's Top 10 Blur songs

Yeah, UTW is a really strange choice.

Not that it's a bad song, but I almost don't consider it part of the band's catalog. For me, it will always be connected to the 2012 Olympics as a one-off.

The whole video sounds like an alien is trying to imitate a human's opinions on Blur.
