The other night at the Splendour In The Grass festival in Australia (North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay, New South Wales) Blur performed a brilliant set in front of an ecstatic Aussie crowd. Most of the July 26 show was also broadcast over the radio, and now the good folks at Big O Zine have posted the tracks, along with relevant artwork, for free download.
Old faves like “Beetlebum” and “Song 2” shared setlist space with several new songs from The Magic Whip although, curiously, only one of the latter, “Ong Ong,” made the broadcast. (Five songs were cut: Go Out, There’s No Other Way, Lonesome Street, Coffee & TV, Out Of Time)
Below is the full tracklisting.
