    Default Damon says Blur is "over"

    "The first time I heard the new single off the Bravery album, I actually cried, and I do not even remember the name of that damn song. It reminded me of this girl I am in love with." - kroqken

    I am still burning from their disappointing set back in 2003.

    Blur are maybe one of my top five bands of all time, and I've longed for the chance to see them once more as the proper quartet. But at the same time, Damon and Graham have both gone on to make some amazing music outside of Blur. Because of that, I'll be fine if they never get together again.

    hmm. kinda reminds me of the new order fiasco.

    it's quite a turnaround that Damon doesn't want to do another Blur record but Graham does. if Graham's got hope then I have hope. fuck, I'd love to see Blur do another record. Damon was all for it at one point, he was gonna take the band to baghdad to record there. and I remember the three of them had some studio time in december 2005 and said they had recorded something very "punk". I guess he lost interest along the way. still, I want to see them again.

    people seem to have a very divided reaction to that set. it's still one of my favorite coachella sets. my experience was near profound.

    Blur has been one of my favorites forever, but they're not really Blur without Graham...I love Damon, but the songwriting suffered greatly without Graham, and the lack of guitar playing ability apparent on Think Tank is embarrassing...listen to the album, and every single song is centered around the bass with only minimal guitars

    I've seen Graham several times solo, and it's been brilliant each time

    Their Coachella set wasn't bad, but it definitely ranks near the bottom of my Blur experiences.....chemical enhancement helped out greatly though

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I was a young'un when I discovered Blur in the mind-nineties; they are one of the bands that have had a significant impact on the type of music I listen to now. A Blur set w/ Coxon in the mix is definitely high on my list of things to see before I die.

    Damon looked unwell at Coachella'03 (reports later mentioned that he had the runs) and Coxon's presence was sorely missed. While their set was underwhelming, it was still a joy to see them.

    In related news, did you know that Alex James, the bassist, is a cheese farmer now? Who else watched the BBC documentary Cocaine: Alex James in Colombia?

    We'll see..seems like every few months, Albarn makes a pronouncement about a project that may or may not end up coming to fruition. I wouldn't be too surprised if a new Blur album is announced by the end of the year.

    EDIT: Been on vacation and just found out about the new Gorillaz album (WOOHOOOO!!!) so I guess Blur is out..for now.

    I enjoy it too, just as a long time Blur fan, in my opinion it doesn't even sound like the same band

    That response from Graham is very thoughtful and interesting. I hope they can pull the band back together someday. Love Blur.

    Also, Damon hasn't heard of Immodium? No one offered him some? (I guess he's British, but still).

    I was onstage for this set and I talked to Damon after and he seemed fine. He was talking about the sunset and stuff.

    I was lucky enough to see Blur tour in 1996. They were awesome live. I'd love to see Blur reunite at Coachella but Gorillaz would probably be a huge hit if they did the full crazy live setup with all of the guest vocalists.

    I've seen em live in 1992, 1997 (?), and 2003 for the Think Tank tour. They were always excellent live.
