Bought this on a trip to Minneapolis to see Lollapalooza “94. Still one of my favourite albums right down to the cover art.
Who exactly was that thought having Grimes on Boiler Room was going to mean that she would spend weeks crate digging to find ultra rare records then scour the internet for the newest in new remixes to play? If you want that, get an actual DJ to play.
Like what’s been noted, she talks about ultra mainstream pop music all the time. If people want to get bent out of shape about her playing, blame Boiler Room and Richie Hawtin for having her on. I’m sure within a one mile radius of the spot in Ibiza there were about 20 big name DJs just sitting around… like a DJ bullpen of sorts.
I travelled to see them play in NYC last year. I think they played everything from A Different Class, would like to have heard a slightly more scattered set list but other than that, had a great time!

No doubt! I’m definitely not going to listen to any of their songs I got for free off the internet last year because of this.
I live in a decent size city but we’re a bit out of the way geographically so lots of bands skip over coming here. Going to a festival is the easiest way to see a bunch buzz bands in one go that wouldn’t come here until their 3rd album comes out and everyone has already moved on.
blur has a bunch of other festival dates listed on their website so I was thinking they would play Coachella this year as well (fits their schedule, don’t think they’ve played any US reunion dates, if not now then when?). If they do, I hope they schedule a few North American warm-up dates like Pulp did last year. Here’s hoping!
