I Broadcast - Single

Post by aldamasta » 11 Oct 2015, 12:24

Well this is a surprise. The same person on the blur subreddit who discovered the Ghost Ship promo found a very similar promo for I Broadcast: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLUR-I-BROADC ... 58cf3c65e7" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Its impact date is also October 23rd, the day of their MSG performance. So if blur makes some US TV appearances, which I hope and think they'll do, will they play I Broadcast or Ghost Ship? In a perfect world they would play both :mrgreen: And now we know why I Broadcast appeared on 6 Music's A list!

Love the track strange how they have dropped it live though, perfect punk style Blur and better live....lads seem to be dropping the lively ones, Popscene, Trouble etc...bit more like hard work playing them lol.

At least the lack of artwork is justified by it actually being a CD-R acetate this time.

Also, a great track. I don't recall who won the Hyde Park graphics thing but I guess it would make sense for that to be the video.

ghost ship and broadcast are good choice to go together because they sound so different

I Broadcast is the first of several MW vids being rotated on the official blur site...

This has ended up getting much more airplay than Ghost Ship, 6 music love it! and I much prefer it, they should have kept playing it in their sets...

A) I find it amusing that they omitted I Broadcast from both the LA and New York shows
B) Ghost Ship is a far superior track and I'm real glad that they included it in the LA show =)
