Yes, exactly! Once I realised there clearly wasn't going to be a band performance element I was hoping to spot the boys sat around the edge of the room, just casually talking and watching the dancers.

apparently it was shot in america so maybe no likely they'd be there.
Bit of behind the scenes? Although that does not sound like lonesome street https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikLBygJ2Kic" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I think the video is ok, I just don't like the song! It really hasn't grown on me at all, in fact I find it a bit boring/annoying. I don't really have the desire for new Blur songs of that ilk anymore. I thought it sounded better live though.

It is the only song that I feel this way about though, the rest of the album sounds fantastic to me.

True, I don't think a bad video can ruin a good song, the music should always stand up on its own.

A good video can add to it though. For example the Coffee and Tv video, I always visualise parts of that video when I listen to the song.

Although I'd have quite liked a video that I could show to my friends that says "BANG! Blur are back!," I like Blur in part because they are not desperately trying to part of the mainstream and have always seem to have done things their own way, and this is no doubt better than the band hand out ice creams from Damon's van and doing funny walks in the street as if it's 1994. Looking forward to the album Tweedz!

Don't think there was much time to create cinematic quality videos with the band appearing. They rather spend their time in rehearsals for upcoming gigs
