Have always liked Blur since their second single "There's No Other Way" in 1991. Favourite song is 'Sing' from their first album "Leisure". Are they playing an non-festival gig too? I recommend Alex James' autobiography. He's a very articulate writer as it happens.

I heard Pendulum were absolutely rubbish!

Heres the Pendulum bashers. I've seen them live 3 times and haven't been dissapointed once. I've seen many live acts and that rate up there with the highest.

Sorry, didn't realise it was sensitive sally week.

Well thats the thing. They aren't a DnB act, its just one style they use for their overall sound.

Pure DnB heads don't like Pendulum because it just isn't DnB. People who dislike DnB may not appreciate their sound either.

But prejudices aside they are a great act and their songs are the heart of many great dance floor mash ups.

Its only overhyped if you don't like it.

what about people like myself who are neither pure dnb heads nor people who dislike dnb?

u dont have to read too much into it ryan - i just dont like their music. pure and simple. i think they're an average act and i dont quite understand the hype but good on them for becoming as successful as they have. nothing nasty about it, i just think they're shit

They are the main reasons I hear people don't like Pendulum.

If you think they are shit then fair enough. Just like any other normal person I jump to the defense of something I'm a fan of.

Its great to see Empire of the Sun doing so well internationally at the moment, especially in the UK. When I was there in May/June 'We Are the Peolpe" was officially the 2nd most played song on UK radio. I can understand why as its a cracking tune.

They've just finished filming their next video near Lancelin apparently. Bought the album and it certainly has its quirky, oddball moments but we are talking about Luke Steele of course. Personally I find "We Are the People" much better than "Walking on A Dream" yet the latter was far more successful in Oz (Top 10 in the ARIA chart compared to No.24 for "We Are the People" and No.4 in the Hottest 100)

I'm not a fan of DnB at all however on TV at least, their Glastonbury set looked really good - they certainly know how to get the crowd going.

Blindfold, Blur are doing 2 standalone concerts this Thurs and Fri at Hyde Park. I'm going to the Thursday one. Been looking forward to it since Dec.
