It's on also on BBC6, but B-list. I would have hoped that at least on BBC6 it could have made it on A-list....but it's better than nothing.
By the way, funny video, the boys are still in great shape!

I don't personally - it's a load of rubbish. I'm just thinking in terms of supposed demographics, shouldn't Blur feature fairly highly on their radar? Or is it still aimed at grannies?

I love it! :D Those costumes are hilarious! I agree that it should be made into a iOS game, it would be so cool, I'd play the hell out of it!

Isn't it likely that Radio 2 may move it up the lists when it's actually released? Or is it already 'released'?

I'm so confused by whether it's actually released or not :|

Luckily, Blur's social media team are always on the ball with up to date information, so I'm sure we'll know really soon. :P

C-List is a joke. Realistically, Radio 2 is Blur's only chance of mainstream radio success nowadays. Radio 1 won't touch them, and 6Music/Absolute/XFM don't have anywhere near the same reach.

In terms of "is it released" I think in this day and age, once the Promo is out, it's released, with a view to airplay ramping up towards the "Impact Date" which should be the peak amount of air play.

I love the new video. Especially Alex trying to fit through the door in his costume :roll:

I wish they'd released this one first really.

the sticker on the promo says the impact date is 29 June...

The impact date isn't for ages, it'll be a list on radio 2 and 6 music at the end of the month

I think this will be their last video.

I didn't think anyone under 30 listened to the radio, let alone Radio 2... I'm well over 30 and I don't listen to the radio :P
I've been drifting along in the same stale old shoes
