I got an email saying the live in hyde park mp3s are ready! downloading now.
interestingly enough, the email says we get 160 kbps mp3s. then I noticed the file name ended with _Low.zip. I removed the _Low from the file name and it started to download a larger zip file. hopefully better quality.
then I changed the file name to include the date for friday's gig (which I didn't purchase) and it started to download that too.
good security, sandbag.
I wish the people who took videos of the newest shows and posted them on YouTube could hold their camera still.
I screwed myself with the downloads this morning. my download of the thursday show got interrupted, now the link it tells me I've used the validation code too many times. I succesfully got the one I had no right to, but failed on the one I legally purchased. rofl. emailing them for help now...
Blur could play more shows. Guitarist believes the band could continue with gigs abroad
August 6, 2009
Graham Coxon has said there could be more Blur gigs.
The guitarist said the band might follow-up their shows in June and July by staging more concerts abroad. The comeback shows were almost all in the UK and Ireland, apart from one in France, in Lyon on July 5.
"We're talking about doing some more shows abroad... I'm not sure how much I can say about that, but we're definitely talking about it," he told XFM.
Coxon added that the band had also considered writing some new songs.
"I think I said that'd be quite good fun. That's as far as it's gone," he said of Blur's future plans. "We didn't bother really talking about it, we were just having a good time. We didn't want to put any adverse 'Gs' onto it."
As previously reported by NME.COM, Coxon said that he was interested in writing and recording another Blur album, but the band had yet to discuss the idea.
The guitarist also indicated that any new material would be unlikely to surface in the near future.
i'd be happy with a tour state side, though.
they're talking about it. let's be happy.
next week there will be another nme article on how nothing has happened in a week and the band must be over forever. it's like a childish drama with that publication.
unnecessary bumps to this thread are cruel. :-(
http://www.nme.com/news/blur/47568Graham Coxon: 'No more from Blur for now'
Guitarist says there's nothing on the cards for the foursome
Graham Coxon has confirmed that Blur have no further plans to play live together or do "anything else" as a band following their reunion this year.
The four-piece reunited to play live earlier in 2009, headlining Glastonbury festival and T In The Park as well as playing their own shows. Now Coxon has told NME.COM, in an exclusive video interview which you can watch by clicking on the right, that they have no plans for further Blur events.
"We're in touch and we say 'Wotcha' and all that but nothing has been mentioned about any more shows or anything else," he said. "Everyone's slipped back into what they do when the Blur creature isn't heaving around. Law and cheese and music, I suppose."
Although the guitarist had no Blur plans, he has geared up his solo career following the band live dates. He is set to play live with musical guests under the band name The Graham Coxon Power Acoustic Ensemble in November.
I'm going to find a puppy to kick.
Yeah Josh...just rub some more salt in my wounds.
oh fuck. this sucks. I am hoping for the Gorillaz though. I've been lucky in that I've gotten to see Blur live quite a bit, but not the Gorillaz.
are gorillaz a possibility?
