IAN BROWN “First world problems”

Post by MADCHESTER UTD » 04 Nov 2018, 11:47

Anyone else heard it yet? Seems to have split opinion a bit; some say it’s very basic, not particularly original, too long at 6 mins, not as good as F.E.A.R, Stellify, Always remember me etc. Others love it🤗. A lot of understandable comparisons with loaded, sympathy for the devil, black grapes submarine etc but I love all 3 songs so I’m fine with it.

I personally think it’s a great tune; it’s a bit funky, it puts me in a good mood listening to it as it’s upbeat, I love the 6 minute version (there is a shorter radio version) as I’m loving the guitar riffs in final couple of minutes. Basically I’ve been playing it to death and it sounds better with every listen 😎

Would put a link for the YT video for the song but I don’t know how to🤷🏽‍♂️

It’s appalling but I didn’t expect anything else from a man/band that peaked thirty years ago. Image

Personally, I’m really looking forward to the new The Good, the Bad and the Queen album on 16th November.

The new single is superb.

Mockney Damien was on Jools, so there are a few new songs on I-player.

'N Colchester ain't nowhere near Lndn. :wink:

Rather strangely the home of John Cooper Clarke, though. But maybe not as strange as him and Nico and what they got upto.

Just played it. Not my cup of tea these kind of songs; reminds me of when Bowie did “blackstar” :? . Some love it saying it’s “genius” but I just find it pretentious drivel. But I do love the classic Bowie hits and Damon is a talented guy so not knocking them as artists.

It'll all going on in Col.... (just for the record, I've never crossed paths with his daughter).

I read yesterday that scottish hero Robert The Bruce was born in Essex, not a million miles from Damon, JCC and Co(l) (well, near Chelmsford, in Writtle but still miles form Scotland).

Anyways, not bothered with new Ian Brown music. If I want to hear from him I'll chuck on The Stone Roses CD. Would enjoy that for the 1000th time far more than any of his solo stuff, new or old.

Didn't realise tB+tB&tQ were around again til I noticed they were on Jools this week, didn't particularly like their earlier stuff but I'll watch them on Jools in due course just to see. Damon is at his best in (early) Gorillaz IMO.

Brown's single is OK, a bit of a grower, maybe, albeit lengthy.

Damon Albarn's voice just sounds so flat in that record and you could argue that his best stuff is way back in the past. I'd rather like to picture Paul Simonon about to smash his guitar to smithereens, than contribute to something like this.

Either way, both records of importance probably to people over 40.
