“A band seizing the attention of an unprepared audience who then gathers, as if the four guys had always been part of the landscape.” Phoenix blesses the locals and tourists that happened to be walking around the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France on October 9th.
Official HD trailer for the new Blur documentary film “No Distance Left To Run” due to hit theaters in the UK on January 19th (international distribution planned as well). Filmed throughout the band’s 2009 rehearsals and acclaimed summer tour, the film finds the four of them together for the first time in nine years.
Gilles Peterson secures a rare interview and mix from young Joy Orbison (scan to the 1:19:00 mark). Inspired at the age of twelve by jungle tunes from the legendary V Recordings now he is making what some say is the most exciting electronic music out now. Future garage? The short mix includes a couple of new tunes set to be released as an EP on his Doldrums label. A great show overall. Music and words with Mos Def and Shuanise round out the show. Cheers to Core News for the rip.
