    Default “It’s very possible I’ll go back to Blur, it really is very possible”

    Two threads by Alchemy today! How could I not post about this?

    Damon Albarn likes the idea of a Blur reunion
    By Alex Young on November 6th, 2008

    What’s this about the Damon Albarn discussing the prospects of a Blur reunion? Between the Monkey shenanigans and forthcoming Gorillaz release, it seems almost unfathomable to think the British musician is considering taking on another high-profile project. But in a recent interview with the BBC, the former Blur frontman hinted at just that - a reunion of his main outfit.

    After recently having lunch with former bandmate Graham Coxon, Albarn now believes a reunion of Blur could “be in the cards.” While previous get-togethers among members of the group were downplayed as nothing more than “enjoyable lunches” and even resulted in one such response by the Grammy-award winning frontman that proclaimed “Blur is over” after rumors began to suggest the contrary, it now appears the 40-year-old Albarn has a change of heart.

    “It’s very possible I’ll go back to Blur, it really is very possible,” Albarn told the BBC, though he refused to go into any specifics, “the truth be known Graham and I have been hanging out together a bit. We had lunch the other day…He’s great, it’s fantastic to get my old friend back. So it’s good but I can’t really say any more than that.”

    Coxon left Blur in 2002 and shortly thereafter the band disbanded following the release of 2003’s Think Tank. Since then, the guitarist has had a fairly successful solo career, which most recently included a collobartion with Pete Doherty for the former Babyshambles frontman’s upcoming solo album.

    Before the idea of a Blur reunion is entertained however, Albarn appears firm in finishing his current endeavors, which includes the release of the Gorillaz’s long-awaited follow up to 2005’s Demon Days. “I’m halfway through the next Gorillaz album at the minute,” he went on to explain in the interview. “That’s going to be interesting and different again. This next time around there will be a lot going on in it.” The album is rumored to see release in March.

    blur reminds me 2003, when one could simply walk up to the front of the main stage.

    maybe you should check them out

    in my mind, Blur and 13 are artistically ambitious masterpieces, that stray far from their early Britpop roots, with Parklife very nearly behind those two

    If you want to truly understand Blur, listen to Parklife.

    how many times have there been "it could happen" and "it won't happen" headlines since 2003? fuck. don't the press ever get bored of rotating between those two stories fuck. I wish they'd just wait until there's actually something to talk about.

    Yep. Those are the three best. I would love to see Blur, even more than Gorillaz.

    Gorillaz album, tour(?), then Blur reunion...

    Doesn't seem that unlikely of a timetable.

    Gorillaz is really great, and so are all of Albarn's other projects.

    However...

    Damon Albarn's full power is only unleashed when Graham Coxon is present. Which is why Blur transcends all levels.

    They have a pretty good compilation: The Best of Blur (the cover looks like my user image). I recommend Parklife and then Blur and then The Great Escape and then 13 and then Leisure and then Modern Life is Rubbish. All are different, all are great.

    Think Tank has some cool stuff too, but Graham Coxon is like... in 1 song "Battery in Your Leg"... which is one of the best Blur songs at any rate.

    pitchfork said it well:

    "There won't be another [Gorillaz] pop record."

    -- Damon Albarn to BBC2's Steve Wright, April 19, 2007

    "Gorillaz is making an album."

    -- Damon Albarn to CBC's Sarah Liss, September 17, 2008 (and to Pitchfork, more or less)

    "Blur is over."

    -- Damon Albarn to Argentinean newspaper Clarín, September 5, 2008

    "It's very possible I'll go back to Blur, it really is very possible."

    -- Damon Albarn to the BBC this week [via Idolator]

    SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP THIS MAN, CLEARLY HE IS VERY CONFUSED.
    and that only spans two years. if you look back longer, the trend continues.

    Damon Albarn is quite possibly the yummiest frontman ever in the history of yummy frontmen. Oh yeah, and he's talented. And apparently manic depressive.
