What exactly is their problem with Blur?
I love there music, but this kinda makes me dislike them.
10 years old news
it's old news, but I just don't get why they dislike them so much.
in my very silent office
was just a joke as Blur were playing the same time at a festival on the same day.
Both have been my favourite bands at some point so I don't really care.
I'm still sniggering at "Cheese master in more ways than one", and will use it as a counter to anyone who claims these stories on the Mogwai site are pointless.
[Disclaimer: I like Blur]
unless im thinking of another feud
actually read the thing on the website?
Obviously the original story is very old, which is why it's surprising that Mogwai deemed it worthwhile or appropriate to bring the subject up once again, unprovoked.
that's provocation enough
Now I've read it. I don't understand it, to be honest. So I'll just stick with my THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION!!!!!!1 failsafe.
I'm not sure if they ever explained why they ever said this, but re-opening a 10 year old one way argument seems like a bit of a cynical publicity stunt.
What exactly is his problem with JFK ?
this is like one of kev kharas' newspieces
"our reunion specialist...."
I've only just realised that Blur are more of an experimental act than Mogwai are.
should really end their life
..just a suggestion
i had that Blair Pie shirt!
This is so fucking childish. It was vaguely funny at first, but now it seems like Mogwai have some sort of insane pathalogical hatred for Blur. Surely there are more worthwhile targets for insane hatred out there? (I.e. Bono, Nickelback, Daily Mail to name a few...)
are very childish.
i find them dull and overrated
but seriously they should grow up and man the fuck up
lighten up??? Eeesh. Go play with the traffic.
Its just banter. Its not meant to be taken seriously.
Didn't Damon Albarn buy one of their 'Blur are shite' t-shirts anyway?
I heard Arab Strap made MOGWAI:ARE SLINT t-shirts though. lolz
blur are utterly fuckin dire ... always hav been
Sigh, how quickly people forget why the original T-shirt came about. Surprise, surprise that the NME couldn't remember either. Blur were and will forever be shite for that reason
Blur = scaredy cats
Damon "Swimming In An Opera-Sized Bowl of Money" Albarn was or ever will be terribly put out by a group of balding past-it rockers using naughty words about him
Lol, the T-shirt isn't why Blur were scared or put out fiddy and parse.
The slogan and T-shirt were a reaction to what Blur did at T in the Park and it's what Blur did that made them scaredy cats!
they probably sold more of these blur t-shirts than their music.
Are you sure you havn't mistaken Mogwai for James?
