Blur To World: Lick On This Ice Cream Man


Whether you like The Magic Whip, or prefer the cat o’nine tails, one thing is certain, we are all up up and away from Blur, who came, didn’t chart, played a gig and a show, and departed into the ether ever after with no Yank gigs on the horizon.

What a bummer but so are many things and before we go any further on dogging young Damon and Graham (who thinks The Magic Whip is Blur’s best album: I guess all the years of self-abuse have caught up with him), let’s offer it up for the best tasting thing about the dripsm according to Gigwise:

Blur fans will be delighted to know that for their forthcoming band the will also have the chance to try their own unique type of icecream.

Created by London dairy specialists The Licktators  – who have in the past released ice creams based around breast milk and female viagra – the frozen dessert will be available at their UK dates and at the Co-op. According to the brand they will be The Magic Whip flavour is “a dairy vanilla custard ice cream rippled with raspberry sauce.” The brand have also promised a unique Blur download with each ice cream sold.

What’s particularly good is that they’ve gone with the one ice cream who seems to delight in coming up with rock’n’roll icecreams. Previous efforts have included Jiggy Pop (popcorn flavour), John Lemon (Lemon curd) and Choc N’ Roll Rehab (chocolate and praline). One suspects that Alex James will be disappointed by the lack of a hint of cheese, but frankly we’re grateful.”

Ps for John Lennon, surely it should be some former of Yellow matter custard, right?
