Graham: iTunes Twitter Chat, 23rd April

Post by Leahscarlet2 » 22 Apr 2015, 17:28

Has everyone seen the q&a with Graham on iTunes? Thursday

-------

Full list of questions and answers from the #AskBlur Twitter Chat: - tom_cas1

--------

What inspried the album title, The Magic Whip?

Finding a wrapper from a firework in Damon's notebook.

How was the process behind recording this record different from previous albums?

The album derived from jam sessions rather than writing whole songs and then recording them.

Which words would you pick to describe the influence of Hong Kong on the album?

Red, dislocate, travel, jet lag, blur, ache, round, electrifier, hot, moving, pavement, noise.

Why have you been playing the Jazzmaster for the Strat parts?

It sounds a bit thicker.

Did you ever consider an alternative name for the album other than The Magic Whip?

We had a working title of 'Made In Hong Kong' but thought it was a bit obvz!

Graham, you're a clothes and shoe lover, does Damon sometimes ask you for fashion tips?

Never!!

What do you to do keep your old clothes in such good condition?

Let dog sleep on...

What's your favourite guitar effect on The Magic Whip and in which song is it?

Reeeevvvveeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrb!

Do you think you would have written an equally brilliant album had you had spare days in a different country?

I would hope so!

What's your favourite track on the albums?

I like "Thought I Was A Spaceman".

Would you like a cup of tea?

Two sugars please.

---Moan moan moan! - GC

In the song Lonesome Street, you whistled at the end of the song?

I had to stop whistling...doctor's orders. I think it is Damon! Shock horror!!

Describe fortysomething Blur in one word.

Too tired.

If you weren't a guitarist, which instrument would you like to play?

Drums!!!!!

Do you prefer cats or dogs?

I like the cog.

I think what Damon said about new music was completely wrong, music should reflect an era and it does just that. What do you think?

I don't anything should do anything. It's automatic. The human mind is too clever to be tricked. Most of them anyway...

I never get things answered on these Twitter tag things but Graham did reply to me recently on a drawing I did. I wouldn't normally post things like that but I do portraiture and I noticed he was retweeting a load of drawings so thought I'd join in haha

He answered me at least once in Twitter. He also told me the guitar tuning for Look Into the Light on the old Blur message board. :mrgreen:
