    Damon Albarn Confirms Blur... Rehearsals

    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.

    Damon Albarn confuses himself all of the time regarding this issue. I'm starting to think it's a gigantic marketing venture. He has built so much anticipation by announcing every little thing he does with the members of the band that it's excruciating.

    And anticipation=demand. Good business practice.

    Flame me all you want for asking this, but why all the praise for Blur? They're in the milk carton video right? Cute, but is there anything I'm missing?

    Try out the album Think Tank. It's their final album before their break-up/hiatus (?). What you'll mostly hear about Blur is that their 90's material (specifically Parklife and The Great Escape) are immaculate pop records (which is substantiated somewhat-I think they're excellent, but honestly I can't listen to them all the time). However, Think Tank, despite it being made without Graham Coxon, a great guitarist in his own right, is a really solid album that I constantly have rotating somewhere. It meets the mark right as he started to shift things over to the Gorillaz so a lot of the experimental pop leanings are in it however he keeps the sound quite distinct. If you are wary about throwing right into an album try the song "Gene By Gene" from it. It has a bizarre opening that sounds clumsy but then launches into an awesome electro-dub stomp with one of their better choruses. Personally, I like them so much because they wrote pretty spectacular pop music. When they're on target they destroy.
