Last night I was in a restaurant with a friend who likes Blur too. When I entered into radio CocaColo Mexico, the 1rst song that we were able to listen to was COUNTRY SAD BALLAD MAN live!!! I couldn't believe it!! That's one of my faves from the s/t album!!
(And Graham said during the afternoon on reddit.com about CSBM that but "i don't see a time when it will be played any time soon..." hahaha!! :lol: :mrgreen: CHEERS TWEEDZ!!! We love ya!!)

This Is A Low was another epic one.

And after dinner, my friend and I sang Stereotypes, G&B, For Tomorrow and The Universal walking by the streets, it was great! :D

Wishful thinking from me perhaps but I hope that playing more obscure songs is a sign that there's more to come from them in the future. The fact that they are playing Ballad Man and Caravan is great, hopefully it makes them realise how important those lesser played songs are and see the joy in everyones faces when they play them.

I know for a FACT that I'd go fucking mental if they played either of those two and if they threw in Ambulance or Battle as well then...well let's just say the cause of death on my death certificate would read "huge orgasm".

Have you noticed that every time Damons says something like "I don't think we've played this for like 18 years" or something like that ; then he is always wrong...

You should check out the gigography on this site before you go onstage, mate :D

I liked the choir in CSBM! It gave it a bit of a Bowie vibe.

The choir works great in CSBM, not so much in Pyongyang. It should never replace Graham's voice imo.

I don't like the choir in G&B for instances.
