We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

BLUR (ABO #238)


One of the britpop's finest bands and one that was able to evolve into something arty, Blur is certainly a band that needs no introduction. Throughout their career, these London lads released 7 albums all of which have more ups than downs. While their third album, the very entertaining Parklife (1994), was the one launching their international stardom it was their self titled 1997's release which helped them break free of their britpop etiquette and allowed them to start experimenting on a whole other level. That was probably what caused their demise too as the limitation of the band ultimately lead Damon Albarn to want to pursue new projects of which Gorillaz is the most famous. True too that Graham Coxon, their guitarist, leaving the band didn't help and the mixed bag their final, to this day, album (2003's Think Tank) certainly suffered his lack of implication in the project. But that was 6 years ago and now the four men matured, patched up their differences and did a few concerts so to officially bury the hatchet. Let's hope it'll lead to a brand new album and that it'll be as good as the songs displayed on this compilation. I guess we'll have to wait and see and, meanwhile, enjoy Blur's baistophe.
