Obviously the Popscene single was great, I just really love Jehovahkill

But more than Modern Life is Rubbish though?...I don't know

By the way, the sound of Far Gone And Out always reminds me a little bit of Bang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v4AAd00dSQ


I think every indie band sounded like this at one point! At 1:09 it reminds me of Half the World away, naughty noel... :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v4AAd00dSQ

I went for an open day at university today and I met Cliff Jones, who told me the story of how he peddled for Blur to appear on the cover of the Face's Union Jack cover after he heard a 2.5" CD of Girls & Boys, despite his colleagues telling him that Blur were finished.

Great story AB.

If Blur hadn't released 'Girls & Boys' when they did, they may well have struggled.
