Less Than a Week to Go!

Blur will perform their new tracks next Monday 2 July and then we'll all be able to download them for our listening pleasure.

While I still think the Twitter aspect of it is gimmicky and very "2012," I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thrilled!

There will be a live global webcast on July 2 where Blur will play the two new songs (with an interview in between). The double A-side will then be available for download, with a limited edition 7" version of it available for purchase online August 6.

Normally I'm against graffiti but this is different. Was this ugly or offensive? No. To fans or casual listeners, it was meaningful. And to everyone else, it was really inoffensive. Read this and check out the video by the crew who did the restoration a couple of months ago (see post below) and decide for yourself.

Keep up the fight!
