Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

Was listening to The Magic Whip only yesterday. I can listen to the album all the way through without skipping any tracks, something that isn't true of Leisure or TGE. I think it's absolutely excellent. Considering they only worked on it for about 3 weeks after such a long break from recording an al...

Shame it wasn't busy but great that the American fans got to see him live, finally.

Re: Dave in the new Slaves vid

Saw this earlier, nice :)

Great band, Slaves. Liking the Graham Coxon vibe on their new song. Looking forward to catching them on the next tour.

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

So "Humility" is the first Gorillaz single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 years. And it's one of only four Gorillaz songs to do so (Clint Eastwood #57, Feel Good Inc.#14, Dare #87). That's awesome. it's also reached #81 in the UK and is Gorillaz's highest charting single since Doncamatic (#37...

Don't think bonus tracks/discs count.

Re: general blur thread

Coffee and TV got awarded a silver disc in the UK last week (200,000 copies sold). That puts it on the same level of sales as Girls and Boys, Parklife, The Universal and Beetlebum.

Also, the Gorillaz album "G-Sides" got a silver certificate (60,000 copies sold).

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

The Magic Whip is absolutely excellent. 8.5/10 for me. the only thing stopping it being a 9/10 is that there isn't a punk song with a BIG FUCK OFF DISTORTED GRAHAM RIFF. I Broadcast almost manages it but he sounds a bit restrained. I still like that song but I couldn't put it next to Bugman or Coping.

Re: "The End of the F***ing World" - full soundtrack album

Bus Stop is his best song since Freakin' Out. Love the guitar sound on the intro. So echoey.

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

The night of glory in 1995 when it was really special at the Brits, Blur blast the mainstream...to a barely known flop album winning him best act in 2018, 2005 maybe deserved but not now!" Although it didn't sell as well as Demon Days or the self titled debut it still went gold in the UK. That's pr...

Honestly? I think it's fucking awful. I wish I could offer something more constructive but I really hate it.
