    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.

    WTF? But Gorillaz are working on a new album right now? I will never understand how workaholics like Damnon Albarn and Mike Patton do it...

    I dunno man. I guess when you've got stuff to express , the means to express it, and awesome people to do it with, it probably doesn't seem like work at all. I wish I was damon albarn D:

    Yeah, I agree with that. Although, I might switch up Blur and Pulp, but I haven't yet heard everything from Pulp. Either Gorillaz or Blur would be awesome. If I could only see one of the two, it would definitely be Blur.

    I have no room in my life for new old albums to listen to. My plate is beyond overloaded, it's not even funny.

    Gorillaz first album was the first album I ever bought with my own money. It will always hold a special place in my heart. Also, the fact their follow up album, Demon Days, was an instant masterpiece doesn't hurt either. Even their B-sides are brilliant.

    On our drive up to Bonnaroo this year we popped in the first Gorillaz cd. I knew it but not as well as Demon Days. We ended up listening to the entire album on repeat for a chunk of the drive. I mean we heard that entire album maybe 4 or 5 times.

    That's a good way to pop your cherry. Mine was Offspring "Smash." I think.

    Blur would be sweet indeed. Honestly, I'll take Damon Albarn in any of his bands. I would be most pleased if he unveiled a new band at Coachella, but that would be too awesome for a simple-minded man like myself to handle.

    I thought so. My mom was mad because it had one of those "parental advisory" stickers on it. My taste went downhill after that though. "Smash" is not a bad way to start off though too. It's a classic.
