The Courtneeners had promise. Now they sound like another Depeche Mode wannabe band that’s so “it” right now…

Why Ed O’Brien is Awesome…

19 January, 2010

Part, I dunno, VI, I think? Anyway, here are a few more great examples of Ed’s guitar work (and work as a badass, in general):

As you can plainly see, Ed has written an amazing guitar part that creates the entire ambiance and atmosphere in this song, which is the most important part of ‘Let Down’. If you were to strip away the vocals, this song would have the exact same effect, emotionally, that’s a feat in and of itself in rock music. Also, getting that tone of a Rickenbacker is amazing.

Great Article…

Hey, I’m On a Roll…

15 January, 2010

To keep with the British music theme of this morning (Apparently) here’s one of the best riffs ever. Period. Way to go John Squire, between you, Duane Allman and Derek Trucks I don’t think I’ll try to learn slide guitar. I just couldn’t live up to this standard…

I found this in my search for a Blur image:

Why I Will Always Love British Bands

I don’t agree with the whole Oasis bashing. Sorry, sister, they’re my heroes. Noel especially. But this list is pretty great.

Not Really a Shocker…

So, No Distance Left To Run, a film about Blur, premiered last night and I have to say I’m genuinely perplexed as to why films can’t be released in other countries at the same time still. I mean, we live in the year 2010 and I still can’t get my hands on District B 13: Ultimatum or this movie?

I went to school for film, I understand the business end of it all, etc. but, come one!

Anyway, apparently Damon Albarn finally revealed why they released Country House at the same time as Roll With It.

Blur clear up one old mystery – saying it was Damon’s decision to release single Country House against Roll With It by Oasis.

The biggest chart battle of the decade became the defining moment of Brit pop – and Blur got the No1.

Damon says he did it to get back at Noel Gallagher. He recalled: “Noel used to take the p*** out of me constantly and it really, really hurt at the time. Oasis were like the bullies I had to put up with at school.”

Daaaaamn…
