The high voice on Terracotta Heart makes me think of the first Gorillaz album.

The only problem with Ong Ong is that it comes straight after the magnificent Pyongyang, and that song leaves me exhausted with how much I love it, so everytime Ong Ong starts I don't pay full attention to it :_D

excluding the 3 that were already put out, my favourite are Ong Ong, I Broadcast and My Terracotta Heart. I'm gonna try my best to not listen to the show again...too much. Go Out sounds so much better live and There are too Many of Us I like even more each time I hear it. Im quite please we had a couple of songs missed, it'll make 27 April even more exciting

^ Totally. It was a blessing in disguise really. I like New World Towers quite a bit. Sounds in similar vein to El Manana.

Having a listen to the music ripped from the live stream now and the one thing I do notice is that people are talking all the way through it! Its the first play of a new Blur album in years and people still can't shut the eff up for an hour! You lot were really lucky to get tickets and you still act like knobs. Bloody London gigs!

What's all this snobbery about Ong Ong? :lol:

It's a great little pop song. It makes me happy. But then I love Mr Tembo - such a great summer tune. You need songs you can hum in the shower.

RELATIONS BETWEEN THE members of Blur were still in such a delicate state when they reunited in 2009 that they were compelled to seek help from a professional counsellor. Speaking in the new issue of MOJO, available on UK news stands from Tuesday March 31, guitarist Graham Coxon reveals that the problems stemmed from his dismissal from the group in 2002 in confused circumstances.

“I probably said a few stupid things in the press. We were all raw and hurt by it.”
GRAHAM COXON


“Although we shoved it all aside when we got back together, I realised that passions were still slightly high about it all,” he says. “Y’know, in those years since [he left in 2002], I probably said a few stupid things in the press – because the circumstances of why weren’t together as a four-piece were quite unclear. We’d met a couple of times – one was some mediation thing where we had to go over stuff that was difficult… We were all raw and hurt by it, for quite a while.”

Coxon adds that by the time Blur started work on Think Tank in 2001, all four members had become estranged after the extraordinary success – and incredible pressures – they’d experienced in the Britpop years. “To be honest, the last couple of years when I was in Blur it wasn’t like we were good friends, like we could ring each other up. Everybody was going through management and we all had our own lives, our own problems.”

The guitarist’s revelations appear in MOJO’s 13-page Blur cover story by Keith Cameron, in which all four members of the group open up about the turbulent journey from their 1991 debut album Leisure to their surprise new reunion album, The Magic Whip, announced last month and heading for an April 27 release. The feature also has interviews with insiders including producers Stephen Street, Ben Hillier and XTC’s Andy Partridge, and record label bosses Andy Ross and Dave Balfe.
