Having been to 3 of the gigs last summer and a fan of Blur from the Parklife days (I was merely 10 at the time), the documentary was a wonderful and massively nostalgic look at the career of Blur. Interspersed chronologically, the time line of their comeback tour last year runs alongside their career from being a young student band through to the recording of Think Tank.

I know there have been good reviews about this series of books on Alfred, but I really felt this was a weak effort of a novel. As a huge fan of Cornwell's Grail Quest and Arthur Sagas, books that I was completely overwhelmed by, this novel has too many dull characters and there is a nasty feeling of deja vu, which I hoped would never happen. Compared to the first two books of the saga, it just didn't flow well or capture the emotions of war as in all other Cornwell books.

Still though, the saga is pretty good and definitely worth a read. Good historical stuff that Cornwell, by and large, is the best at.

After hearing the amazing "intervision" I was desperate to get my hands on some more. I won't be ashamed to say it, but the future of music can be found on this record. A combination of Philimonic Orchestra sounds and Jimi's personal slanted look at music making. "Out of Nowhere" is unpredictably stunning and I recommend it for the beautiful "Paint the Stars" alone. You'll thank me for this one. Top notch!!
