As part of Record Day Blur sold 1000 limited copies of their freshly recorded new song Fools Day, their first material since 2003……sadly being a slightly obsessed Blur fan I was unable to get a copy on Vinyl, however Blur have kindly given the single away as a free download on their website. This has been available since midnight on record day, however I am writing this piece as I am getting increasingly frustrated with touts and having quickly popped on Ebay my annoyance has been renewed with the discovery that certain individuals are selling the record for up to £350 unplayed forcing true fans to pay ridiculous prices. Im not sure there is any real solution when it comes to music, but I still don’t understand why ticket touting is not made illegal!!
On a more positive note this is a superb return from one of the UK’s most important bands Blur – Fools Day (Click Here)
