Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Put your cock away mate, this pissing contest is over. It's not a contest it's FACT, I'm fed up with people who call themselves fans but have never experienced a live gig because they don't live in London or they were too busy, it's all excuses. Perhaps I'll form my own blur forum with the criteria...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Okay, I haven't seen Blur live, I've never had the opportunity. To make up for that however, I've listened to their music non-stop for the past six years and collected everything I could find with their or any of their side projects' name on it - t-shirts, bootlegs, journals, posters, obscure compi...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

I haven't seen Blur live either. In 2003 I was too young (14). In 2009 I was knee-deep in exams during the summer and I had absolutely no free time. In 2012/2013 perhaps I could have made an effort, but I didn't have the financial means to do so. I'm from Albania, and it costs a lot to arrange the ...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

If you're going to listen to live tracks before the album, good for you. If you're going to hold out to listen to the album, good for you. If you've been a fan since like 1989 then congrats. If you became a fan yesterday after hearing Song 2 on a television commercial, then welcome! literally could...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

So what you're saying is if you haven't supported Blur from the beginning, you're not a real fan. Utter bollocks!! And yes, when Leisure came out I was definitely too young (as I suspect were most people on this forum). But that's not to say that I shouldn't be a Blur fan becuase of it. And yes, I ...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

If we're not supposed to hear the band's new material, what was the purpose of streaming the entire live performance in YT? They clearly want to share their new music with us, so what's the matter with enjoying it? It's ok if people want to wait until the record comes out, but it's equally ok if ot...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

So people don't want to listen to the live tracks in order for the album to be fresh? Ok. Well what if Blur played their only tour shows this year BEFORE the album is released, you wouldn't go? (Hypothetical of course, but still). Seems like a ridiculous position to me. I want to enjoy everything t...
