There is one exception, I saw Blur live with My Bloody Valentine and Dinosaur Jr twice.
Something like the 'Lollapolla tour" (??)
I wasn't very keen
This type of music - Blur et alia was not my thing.
I'm more a Pixies, MBV, Breeders, Throwing Muses, Pavement, Built to Spill type of guy...
well you KNOW i love the pixies. i just have limited exposure to all this other stuff. and i do love radiohead, across several albums. so i am open to suggestion. just the way of things, but this board and the people on it are really my main exposure to any music now. my son is no music fan. and if i don't play the turtles or the left banke or maybe a lil spirit around my sister, she takes a nap.
i used to be around music freaks in large numbers. used to go to shows. i had a few rabid music freaks in my family who had many different loves and turned me onto different things. i am the only music freak left in this house, and it aint like i'm going anywhere anytime soon. i'm thinkin of wearin a hazmat suit and heavy boots when i go out to vote.
i like turn-ons and i can get em here just fine.
