    "Leisure is a great album! Classic 808 deep base drum beats with psych 60's influence. This stuff was so fun to dance to in the Indie clubs back then. Yes its true, We're that old. Every song is good on that album, but the stand outs are "She's so high", "Bad Day" and "There's no other Way" which was a huge hit on the College and Alternative charts. Brings back some great memories actually.. I actually met and interviewed the band back in that time. Damon was so classic, he insisted on talking about my red, white and blue soccer jersey that I was wearing. The first thing he asked me when we sat down is "Are you Mod"? Then he wanted to talk about Football, and not English Football, American. He said he liked The Raiders.. No lie, He was also wearing low top Vans skate shoes which I thought was cool. I ended up staying back stage and drinking all their Guinness. There was a huge rainstorm hitting LA that night, and got to stay late after the show. The Rentals opened up for them and put on a good show too. Ahh good times~

    So yeah 13 and Think Tank were great, not sure which I liked more. Maybe the former, slightly. These are all initial listens. Basically everything was pretty great expect for MLIR, Parklife and The Great Escape. I know, right? Those seem to be classics so I bet a fair amount of those are used for live sets. I haven't checked. Regardless I'm looking forward to seeing Blur.

    I just cant see it happening that way guys.

    GV - We want Blur for 2013
    Damon - Great, we'd love to play
    GV - The Roses will close the big stage on Friday night after you guys play
    Damon - Fuck right off............OR.............Yes that's fine
    I know which response is more likely.

    I imagine call to the Roses camp would be much different

    Setlist for festival proper. Probably 90-100 minutes seeing how it was 5-6 shorter that UK shows that were a touch over 2 hours.

    I hope that it's the latter for sure. I am excited to also see The Stone Roses, but Blur would be a much better closer imo. I still think The Stone Roses will close weekend one, with Blur closing weekend two since that's how they are placed on the posters for each weekend.

    I remember some discussion earlier about whether or not the band would bring the horns and backup singers to Coachella. They had them last night so I think we will be getting the full show for sure.

    Thanks for the set list post. I need to study up on the songs I don't know. (I'm a lazy Blur fan)

    Thanks for the updates. Would have liked to see more songs from The Great Escape but it'll do. Love that they're playing Popscene and The is a Low.

    I've seen Blur live 4 times, and 3 of those times they played Popscene (the first time was before that song was released), so that will probably still be on the set list.

    I think Blur are more likely to close simply by virtue of being the "bigger" band but I would love the Roses closing instead. Imagine I Am The Resurrection being the last song you hear on the first day of the festival? That would be fucking boss, and would be my preference, even though I'm way excited for both sets.

    I'd bet a culo swap the Roses are closing. At least for W1. And most likely W2.

    I'd hope they add "charmless man" and "stereotypes" to the set and take out a couple of the slower ones.

    Am I the only one who really, really loves Think Tank? Behind 13 it's probably my favorite of all their albums, and it rarely gets mentioned and they don't really play any cuts from it.

    I love it too, but I doubt they'll play any songs from it since Graham wasn't in the band when it was made. If they did play from Think Tank, I'd want Sweet Song!

    On another note, what songs do you guys wanna hear that they'll most likely not play?
    My number one is You're so Great. Grahams voice is awesome in that song!

    I will be there and I agree that if there are less people there (while it would make me sad for the boys) - I'd be psyched. I was in Hyde Park in August 2012 and I couldn't fight my way to be anywhere near as close as I would have liked.

    BRING IT ON I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT!!

    *Also, douchebag, if the only song you can conjure up is 'Song 2' then you are just as much of a loser as the people you're calling out for only knowing 'Song 2'. BAM.

    disapointed that the setlist is the same as it was in 09 and 12, too much britpop, could do with more self titled and think tank. and just a general shake up, sad to see them become a nostalgia trip. ideal setliust for me...

    Popscene
    Song 2
    Movin' On
    Advert
    Trouble In The Message Centre
    On Your Own
    Coping
    Bank Holiday
    Girls & Boys
    Swallows In The Heatwave
    Coffee & TV
    End Of A Century
    Swamp Song
    I'm Just A Killer For your Love
    He Thought Of Cars
    No Distance Left To Run
    This Is A Low

    Sing
    Battle
    Battery In Your Leg
    The Universal

    ... but i expect the same stale setlist as mexico, including the dreadful country house

    Considering that we haven't had a show with the full band in America since 1999 I will take a brit-pop nostalgia set thank you very much.
