The answers Blur but I haven't got a bad word to say about Ocean Colour Scene. Some cracking tunes and Moseley Shoals is a boss album.

Blur, no contest.

 

Don't listen to them now but absolutely loved them from She's So High to Parklife.

 

Ocean Colour Scene were fucking brutal. That song about the train is up there with my most hated songs.

Never liked Ocean Colour Scene, I always thought they looked like their mums dressed them. Saw Blur live at a festival once, they were pretty decent, so I’m voting for them.

Damon Albarn is obviously a bit of a knob, but he’s definitely pretty high up in the pop song business in the last 30 years with Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen.
A bit of their Britpop stuff was a bit wank, but a lot of Blur was good.

Blur are obviously more versatile but I've seen OCS live a fair few times and they're really good. So I'll give them a nod based on live performances.

Albarn and Alex James are two of the biggest cunts in music.  But Blur have better songs, OCS only have that Day we Caught the Walrus song so it has to be the twats from Essex on this vote.

I remember when Ocean Colour Scene first appeared in Bretton shirts doing a non-league version of Fools Gold...

I’ve voted Blur but I do think they are very derivative. Albarn very talented at mimicking other bands style almost to the point of parody. Song 2 is a straight Nirvana parody, Beetlebum could have been on the Beatles White Album, Parklife or countryhouse the Kinks. Not sure what an actual Blur song sounds like.

Yeah Beetlebum is a superb song.

End of a century is my favourite Blur song followed by Tender and The Universal. 

The universal could be from a Pink Floyd album, it’s all very derivative albeit very well done. That said, this thread has already shown they have a strong back catalogue. They could be contenders for the late stages. As we see with Oasis snd Primal Scream, ripping of other bands style is no impediment to success in this competition.

Blur, even if it's just for No Distance Left To Run - a song OCS couldn't write even if their Vespas lives depended on it. 

 

Modern Life Is Rubbish, Parklife and blur are all five star albums.

Blur haunt me in work. 

 

My brain has got an annoying habit of making subconscious links to songs and giving me an earworm without telling me why. A fair part of my job involves procurement: inviting tenders and evaluating them when they come in.  Every time I'm working on a tender, I catch myself humming "Come on, Come on, Come on, Get through it..."

 

It's an annoying habit. Fortunately, I quite like the song.

All bands rip off other bands though, I never let that worry me too much. If I like the music then that’s good enough for me. 
 

It’s like the ‘Oasis ripped off the Beatles stuff’ (More like Slade if anyone who are actually another notable omission from this) but loads of bands do it. Karma Police rips off Sexy Sadie by The Beatles. Start by The Jam is obviously taken from Taxman. Badlands by Springsteen rips off Don’t let me be misunderstood by The Animals. 
 

As long as the song is good what’s the issue?

    • A horrible horrible cunt. And Diouf.
    • Our academy did well when it started out, but it was stifled through the period when Rafa was here when they seemed at odds with each other philosophy and Rafa built a shadow young reserve team and there was little to no cooperation. But since then there's been plenty of wins despite how long it takes for players to come through. Admittedly a lot of those players haven't always started at the club at 8 and they've been parachuted in on their mid teens, but that's part of how it works now.  I would be amazed if it doesn't pay for itself and more. We currently have one of the best right backs in world football (well unless you're Gareth Southgate), along with some fringe players and promising talent. Surely it only gets better now the kids are on the same site as the players.    I don't think you can expect one superstar per generation and a handful of decent talents I think is the most we can expect and if we get more, it is a bonus. 
    • The only way I'd be behind a breakaway league is if it's a kick up the arse to UEFA and the Premier League to get their shit together - e.g. by employing competent referees. Sadly this just looks like a massive cash grab for the bigger clubs.
    • Defo hope we do this. Tough learning ground down there compared to the pampered academy players or some contract bagger.
        Been some decent signings for prem clubs the past couple of seasons and we’ve benefitted brilliantly with relegated players. Without any evidence to back this up, imo, these lads have that bit more hunger to succeed after being overlooked by the bigger clubs academies when they were younger and have been allowed to develop without the pressure of making it at the top clubs.   I don’t feel our academies been that much of a success for how long it’s been running. There doesn’t seem to be that much long term development in getting the right players in the big positions for the first team. From what I’ve seen over the years, it’s just a case of getting 11 players on the pitch in none competitive games and letting them stay doing nothing.
