My next Blur book...title change?

I posed this question on the Facebook and Twitter pages, but I've been mulling over whether or not to change the title for my next Blur book. On one hand, I feel like the title is established and would help with exposure for the new book. On the other hand, since it is expanded and includes some new material (in the way of ticket stubs, passes, etc), it could be considered a different beast and thus may benefit from a new title.

What do you think?


  1. Hey, sorry, I don't know how to post general questions on the blog (though that's my technological failure - it's a brilliant resource). Was wondering if a recording of Goldsmith's '09 is up? I heard one existed, and it's possibly my best Blur memory (though having attended virtually every reunion gig, and many 'back in the day', I couldn't possibly say. It was just really special to see Blur back in the city that made them, playing in shitty New Cross, 10 minutes from my shitty home :P if it is available could you please point me in the right direction? Thanks very much!

  2. Hi there! Right now the only recording I have of Goldsmiths '09 is the audio ripped from various crowd-shot video, not the complete show. If a proper audience recording exists (and it hasn't surfaced yet but surely someone taped the gig), then that would be ideal, obviously! If I ever come across one, I'll let you (whoever you are!) know.

  3. UPDATE: I've come across two people who have a copy of this gig...been trying for over a year to pry a copy out, still working on it!
