Re: There are too many of us

I promised myself I wouldn't listen to it. Lasted the time it took me to read this thread...

It's so effortless for Blur to come up with such brilliantness. Can't help a bit of sadness creeping in though when I think how we've missed out on 16 years of great music from them.

Re: 13 turns 16!!

I was under the impression that they were tentatively beginning work on new material when Damon cancelled it all. That was the vibe I was getting at the time..

Re: 13 turns 16!!

Yeah I thought it was a shame that Orbit burnt his bridges with them... That whole thing raises a couple of interesting questions though.. I think it says a lot that he was seemingly their first choice to work with again with Graham back on board. I also wonder what might have become of all that if ...

Re: 13 turns 16!!

I really hope the magic whip is weirder than 13 in parts. Weird Blur is the best Blur.

Re: 13 turns 16!!

This album was released during my mega-fan' period. I became a fan in 1995 and a bigger fan in 1997 but after taping Glastonbury 1998, watching it to death then buying Starshaped and watching that every week for about a year, I was the biggest fan possible by the time 13 came out. I taped the Hippod...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20

I'm kind of torn between whether i'd rather hear the songs live first or not... I'm pretty sure i'm not going to be able to resist watching the stream but i'd definitely rather hear the songs in their recorded form before hearing how they are reproduced live. I remember back in 1999 taping The Hipp...

Re: Blur Video Thread

I'm guessing this will already have been posted earlier in the thread but I just watched it again for the first time in a few years and was reminded that it's just brilliant in every way. First of all it's hilarious that Blur were supporting Duran Duran and the German crowd (who are the strangest an...

Re: What do you think of the new Blur song, 'Go Out'?

My Name Is Mud wrote:It's great. Listened to it about 15 times in the first few days of its release. I've been avoiding it since, because I don't wanna be sick of it by the time the album comes out.

I'm exactly the same - i've banned myself from listening to it until the album comes out.
