Definitely, Maybe – Do The Gallagher Brothers Make Up? GRAHAM COXON (Guitarist BLUR) Says: “Do It”
The first almost credible rumours of a reunion of Manchester‘s
infamous band OASIS (the best band in the world for 1 and half
year, according to Noel) are now coming from the longtime fighting
brothers directly. Liam said several times that Noel‘s wife opposed
A few days ago the news came in that Noel and his wife are divorcing.
So, if Liam‘s tweet (below) is credible, it’s possible Noel took inspiration
from his Oasis classic Don’t Look Back In Anger, or he needs the band’s
reunion money for a, probably, sky-high alimony.
Yesterday Liam started the fuss with this tweet.
The countless reactions, of course, were in favor
of a Liam/Noel meeting with an Oasis reunion
as the final result.
I love Blur’s guitarist Graham Coxon‘s response.
Many hate them, but millions love them. Anyway, I only saw Oasis 27 times
and It would be awesome to make it at least 35 times. Yes, if they do a reunion
tour, I’ll take a break from my daily blogging and follow them around Europe
like a fool on the hill.
You could wait for a lifetime
To spend your days in the sunshine
You might as well do the white line
Cos when it comes on top
You gotta make it happen!
English Duo THE WAEVE – Graham Coxon & Rose Elinor Dougall – Drop New Saxy Groove ‘KILL ME AGAIN’
Works faster and harder than caffeine
30 November 2022
British duo THE WAEVE – aka Graham Coxon (Blur) and songstress
Rose Elinor Dougall – uncage their first collaborative, self-titled album
on 3rd February 2023. Pre-order info here.
Ahead of it comes taster #3. KILL ME AGAIN is a riveting, promptly
infectious groove propelled by a pounding synth/bass riff, spiced with
Coxon on saxophone and mesmerizing (duet) vocals. Splendid stuff.
“Kill Me Again explores the feeling of non being or the sensation of shape shifting during
intense pleasure, the battle of light to exist within the universe as it becomes increasingly influenced by dark forces. It’s a celebration of sexual agency and the power generated by the physical merging of entities, the power that brings into being and how it will overcome evil.”

New sonic impulses…
21 May 2021
80s Brit-glam stars DURAN DURAN have no intention to retire.
Five years after Paper Gods they have a new longplayer in the
pipeline. FUTURE PAST arrives on 22 October. They invited
several guests to join them for the new record.
For the new single INVISIBLE they called Blur‘s guitarist Graham Coxon

was somewhere on it.
Same old band, same old vibe, same old songs…

‘Happiness In Magazines’ By GRAHAM COXON (2004)
Old and new albums to make your day…
20 February 2020
Artist: Graham Coxon
Album: Happiness in Magazines
Released: 17 May 2004 – His fifth solo LP
ALL MUSIC review: “…what is a shock is that Coxon has the confidence and will
to not hide behind the noise and obscurist tendencies that made his previous solo
efforts a bit laborious. Here, his emotions are pushed to the surface and they are
married to catchy, memorable songs that are delivered in an immediate and
imaginative fashion.” Full review here – Score: 4.5/5
TURN UP THE VOLUME!: The best rock album Blur never made.
Without Coxon, they would have become an arty-farty project
rather than Britpop icons they became.

Remember This Ace Album? ‘A+E’ By GRAHAM COXON…
Great, yet unsuccessful albums from the past…
10 September 2019
Artist: GRAHAM COXON
Who: Blur’s guitarist
Album: A+E / his 8th solo longplayer
Released: 2 April 2012 / only one week in the UK charts, at #37
Sound: The repetitive combination of snappy guitar riffage, addictive beatbox rhythms, Krautrock dynamics and Coxon‘s nervy and at times confused vocals turned this record into a splendid LP overlooked by the mass, but vitalizing fuel for alt rock addicts like me
Here come the stellar singles…
