That's not a bad list! Don't agree with the remark about Blur's B-sides though.

I can see where they're coming from though - Blur didn't really throw away their best stuff on b-sides in the way that Oasis did.

So I was walking back from lunch and was wondering "why can I hear The Universal?'. Then I saw a busking fiddler around the corner, playing along to an instrumental backing track.

I'm just reading the "history of Blur" pages and I found this interesting:
October 1995 - The band plan to release the follow up to Starshaped and Showtime. However, the film was never released because the band and film makers found it too dark. "It seemed to be a just a painful reminder of things that happened to all of us," says film producer Ceri Levy.

Also, it says:
November 2009 - The Sunday Times teams up with Blur and releases a freebie live CD recorded on the reunion tour, plus the trailer for the upcoming Blur documentary No Distance Left To Run.

What was the live cd?
