Re: country house

I've always thought there's a sliver of genius in its composition. At the end, the juxtaposition of that bouncy cheery chorus being laid over the "blow blow me out I am so sad I don't know why" vocal. Really clever, that. I sort of get why people don't like it. It's the same with Fountains of Wayne ...

Re: EU Referendum

Don't worry, I know you didn't see Farage stood in front of that reluctant exodus of migrants fleeing for their lives and think "that's my man." There were several compelling and reasoned arguments which could influence a leave vote, but by going that way you can't help but align yourself with every...

Re: EU Referendum

You can't be suggesting that everyone who voted leave is an ignorant, xenophobic racist...? Not everyone, but there's a definite correlation between voting leave and being a bit thick. Look at my local polling stats: Cambridge, full of universities and science parks, 75% in 25% out. Fenland, full o...

Yes, pretty much. I now feel like part of an intellectually superior minority. It's like being a Blur fan whilst Oasis were the bigger band. :twisted:

Re: EU Referendum

I'm just back from the polling station. "That'll cancel you out Tom C" I thought as I cast my vote. :)

To be honest I'll be glad when it's all over now.

Tom, Indiana's got a point, and though you're probably right you're definitely being a bit presumptuous. I was checking into a campsite a week or two back and the guy in front in the queue was giving his details. He was a teacher, obviously smart and educated. When it came to 'nationality' he said "...

Re: 2nd StarBootSale by Dave (May 22nd, London)

Well, I've been outbid on Russell Brand's Converse. I like to bid, but when it comes to stuff I've got no real need for I like being outbid just as much. £10 was my limit there. This looks like a nice thing to have though. https://twitter.com/BlurNorthAm/status/733683554295656448" onclick="window.op...

Re: The Beatles Thread

I'm going to defend James a bit here. Firstly, BBC local radio DJs can be a pretty third-rate, ham-fisted bunch at the best of times. Coffer is the interview pro in that situation and should know the score - James is there to plug an album. Now, I'm not saying you don't ask about his family but you...

Re: Stone Roses new album out this Friday (5th March)...

Squire's a good guitarist, and and that's a sharp and catchy enough riff. The lyrics are dire. Liam Gallagher could do better, and I commented last night that the chorus sounds like it's been written for an early Robbie Williams' album.

Re: Tom from Keane on Damon and Blur...

The emnity runs both ways.

Noel Gallagher on Keane:

"Traditionally speaking, the three biggest twats in any band are the singer, the keyboardist and the drummer. I don't need to say anything else."

Re: The Bluetones Thread

I saw them at Milton Keynes a couple of weeks ago, it was a cracking little venue, essentially a back room in a pub. It was damn hot in there, and there was a hiccup when Adam's amp blew up and tripped the whole stage off, but they were in fine form. I didn't take any pics worthy of sharing, but one...
