‘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.

TOP TRACKS: Spectacular / Freakin’ Out / Don’t Be A Stranger

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

– OOH, YEH YEH –
