Re: Graham on Celtic Connections Festival (31 Jan & 1 Feb)

New Graham album in 2016 would be awesome. His last 3 were all sooo good. No sense in stopping now innit.

Re: Lonesome Street appreciation

Should have been a top 10 hit. But sadly, rock bands aren't allowed in the singles chart anymore.

Re: unpopular blur opinions

Despite being one of the most consistent live bands I've ever seen, they're often fucking shite when playing on TV shows.

Re: general blur thread

Il Communication isn't even the best Beastie Boys album released in the 90s, let alone one of the best overall. Mine would be (only one album per artist allowed) in order: 1.Blur- Modern Life is Rubbish 2.Radiohead- The Bends 3.Judas Priest- Painkiller 4.The Prodigy- Music for the Jilted Generation ...

This is how I'll feel if I ever get to see Bowie live.

Which I won't. :(
