To put Blur’s future into perspective all you have to do is listen to Graham Coxon’s latest interview given to the NME. According to Graham there are no more plans to play live together or “do anything else”. So there you have it. The lucky thousands who crammed into the Glastonbury and T in the Park festival venues and the few present for the intimate reunion gigs this year were the last to witness the band perform for a while, or perhaps forever?
The guitarist goes on to say: “We’re in touch and we say ‘Wotcha’ and all that but nothing has been mentioned about any more shows or anything else,” he said. “Everyone’s slipped back into what they do when the Blur creature isn’t heaving around. Law and cheese and music, I suppose.”
Although Coxon has nothing on the Blur radar he is going full steam ahead with his solo career. The Graham Coxon Power Acoustic Ensemble which consist of Graham and his musical guest are scheduled to perform some dates in November of this year
The group will play:
Manchester Royal Academy Of Music (November 11)
Edinburgh Queens Hall (12)
London Barbican Hall (28)
This interview was taken back in April and has Graham talking about his musical process, recording with Blur, and writng lyrics for the Kiss of Morning album:
