La la la la :nice:



I think this shows us they're not near the end of their career. :wacky:


I think what's different about bands like Blur, The Jam and Stone Roses is that they didn't have much of a go first time round. You feel like they were stopped in their prime.


It's when people talk about an Oasis comeback, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, that it really gets irritating. Those bands had their golden eras before squandering it, but you get the feeling that people are only just starting to appreciate Blur for the innovative songwriters they've always been.


It's just my opinion but a new Blur album is just what we need. It'd give a renewed energy to British indie, it'd make rock music exciting again, and it'd give the band the much need lift from everyone else's shadows. Whatever they do, it'll be their record. Their free from the battle of britpop, from expectations.


I mean what else is there in British indie? Django Django? Viva Brother? Please.

Can't say I do. He's a private man, I can't think anyone would know.


I did a work experience at Q Magazine recently, and got the train in from the west. I saw the Westway everyday, and I think I've even seen the rooftop from the recent Twitter performances :P


Damon was unhappy with Q too - they recently did a feature and "made his shoes too shiny" in the photos :P
