Thread: No Blur or Gorillaz @ Coachella

  1. #1

    Default No Blur or Gorillaz @ Coachella

    The Gorillaz will start recording at the end of March in Syria for the new album. This pretty much confirms that there is no way Blur will be playing a huge festival a few weeks later (Coachella) as it will give them no time to rehearse properly.

    Now lets put any Damon Albarn rumors to rest...

    It doesn't really say they're going to be holed up in Syria to recording the entire album. It just says they're heading there for a session, which could just end up being some short-term jamming and taking in the environment to inspire them in the writing process. Who knows. That's NME writing for you.

    I don't trust the British in general...

    No but seriously, its noteworthy, but it still doesn't mean Damon can't hop on a plane to the US from Syria for an elongated weekend while the rest of the Gorillaz do some work over there.

    I'll take it into account.

    It sounds like something that would last a week. He probably already knows what he's going to record over there. Still, I was always iffy about Blur coming to Coachella first since they mean so much to the British. Gorillaz was always more likely, but I thought the album would be released in March, not recorded in March... It's still possible, but not probable. He can't record with Gorillaz too long. He's got to rehearse for Blur.

    it was never happening. the only reason anyone ever believed either band would be there is because so many of us want it so bad.

    also, syria. fucking awesome. does anyone remember when he was saying that he wanted to record the next bur album in baghdad? they never got around to another blur album though.

    If Bowie or the Smiths read this board and had a sick sense of humor, they would demand to play APW.

    Look, I'm just happy that Gorrillaz still exist and are planning to record. After Demon Days I was dreading that Albarn actually MEANT IT when he said that this was gonna be the last we'll hear from Gorillaz. Bastard. If he can concoct something as good as Demon Days, or even come up with another spectacle show as great as the one he did at Apollo, I'll give him till 2010 to headline Coachella.

    not sure. I think that guy's name is eslaam, yeah he is syrian. he went on tour with them just to perform mr whippy during the encore every single night. and fucking awesome it was too. that song should have been a gorillaz song.
