Blur’s last album, “Think Tank” was their greatest achievement which is a shame since it was their last album. That was 5 years ago. Since then, singer Damon Albarn has moved on to projects like Gorillaz and The Good The Bad and the Queen while guitarist Graham Coxon has worked on solo projects. However, it appears they are possibly reuniting. From NME:
Hey Blur, get back together already! Or don’t! Just, please, pick one. Blur’s maybe-ex-frontman Damon Albarn recently added yet another quip to his coterie of frustratingly vague statements, telling BBC Radio 2’s Janice Long that “Blur are certainly going to rehearse and see if we’re into it,” according to NME.com. Which would be cool and great and everything! ‘Cuz when Blur were good (in the 1990s) they were really good!
Then again, the man clearly says they may get past the rehearsal stage if, not when, they’re into it, so folks might want to keep the excitement in check. Another enticing tidbit: NME.com claims that Graham Coxon will be part of this rehearsal thing.
It should be noted that the occasion for the interview was a stripped-down performance of that Gorillaz opera Monkey: Journey to the West, which will air on BBC Radio 2 the evening of November 29.
Make it so.
