Yes! So excited. I'm gonna try to get some questions together on the blur subreddit so he can see that there's a hardcore blur fanbase on reddit. Also hope he goes to /r/blur and sees my CSS stuff that I'm pretty proud of :D :mrgreen:

A reminder that Graham's Ask Me Anything on Reddit starts at 19:30 tonight - so if you want to ask him anything, now's the time to get ready and think up some good questions... :)

There's a page of typewriter stuff in Everyday Robots.
Around half of it is what ended up becoming You & Me but the rest of it is Spaceman.

'i was iwas a spaceman

digging out my heart
in westbourne grove
the end of the world had come and gone in a blur
a new century upon us
wrapped in
caught in a world of tin foil
if the end of the world had come i did,nt'

I see that The Magic Whip wasn't even nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. Whatever. Bullshit, musical elitist award.

Blur have been nominated twice already and I think Damon asked for the Gorillaz to not be nominated in 2001 so fuck it off :lol:

And Damon was nominated last year. It is bullshit to me. If Everyday Robots was nominated, how the hell was TMW not?? I love ER, but TMW is a much better album.

They tend to be biased towards solo artists who make introspective music - much like Everyday Robots. The only two bands that have been nominated are Wolf Alice and Slaves.

And they've never even nominated a heavy metal band. Don't get me wrong I'm not expecting cannibal corpse or Motley Crue to get one but bands like mastodon and opeth should have. Opeth'a last album was a classic

The Dandy Warhols have posted something on FB about Blur headlining the Mexico bill but I don't get it.

I quite some of that Slaves album. Cheer up London, Sockets and Like an Animal = great punk/noisy indie tunes.

Singing is ropey as fuck though :lol:

I thought slaves were good live and their first album is great but the new one just sounds over produced to me
