I know of Blur and I do not care for them. Maybe its because I liked Oasis back in the day and the two bands loathe each other.

I just listened to him for the first time....sounds like Marc Bolan from T.Rex big time vocally

I stand corrected..he has a hit in the UK top 40 as we speak in dec. '07.....
Dave Edmunds produced both the Stray Cats and Shakin' Stevens.

I would not want to drink with the Gallagher Bros for fear of having a chair thrown at me and I doubt being one of the other musicians in Oasis was ever fun for long. But they have made some pretty good music that reminds me of a great year of my life.

The two of them are kind of like Ray and Dave Davies as far as fraternal strife.

Thanks for the info, Ich...feel free to comment more on here....this is a
pretty active post, and will prob be active for a while. I, personally, miss
that "Sun Sessions" sound. I also like the retro sound of those Royal Crown
Revue bands....lots of fun!
