Anyone have any substantial details as to why?
and decided that they were a bigger band...?
it's because the drummer hurt his arms from too many polyrhythms
but to be honest i suspect it would have been to do with schedule, on paper (with constant radio1 support, loads of tv, selling a shit tonne of albums) they're a bigger band than both foals and crystal castles but haven't been around as long (despite all of them only releasing 1 album).
that's my hunch. it's a shame because, as much as i love foals and cc none of the supports last night really had the 'songs' to connect with the massive crowd.
...not a great band, but one that has produced a very decent album. With that in mind, and in any right world, Blur should be overshadowed by them.
Not a big fan of Blur if I'm honest which is satisfying because lots of people seem to be - nice to be different. I probably wouldn't be as antogonistic towards them if it wasn't for the fact that everyone heaps so much praise on them.
I'd find a better band to support.
