About this deal

You won’t learn too much more about Blur and the songs, but you will get to know Graham a little better. Paul Weller från the Jam nämns också flertal gånger, vilket är gulligt med tanke på hans senaste medverkan som förband på deras Wembley gig.

So what would a recovering alcoholic who suffers from anxiety hope to achieve by 'dishing the dirt' on ex partners and members of Blur? At its best when detailing Coxon’s approach to the creative process, and his discovery of a new confidence in his post-Blur solo albums and soundtrack work.Poorly written at times and suffers from lack of insight into Coxon’s relationships, and even those with the mothers of his children are very thinly sketched. Ho trovato estremamente sincere e confidenziali le pagine dedicate alla sua vita, al suo amore e al suo studio smisurato per l’arte e la musica e la sua franchezza in merito alla sua lotta contro la dipendenza, estremamente delicati gli accenni che avrebbero potuto essere assai più polemici verso gli altri, come d’altronde mi pare ci si possa attendere dalla sua anima, poetica, timida, introversa, fortemente autocritica.

One flashpoint was Blur’s 1995 hit Country House – ostensibly a satire on success – and its Damien Hirst-directed video. För att fylla upp sidor, istället för att beskriva VIKTIGA saker, beskriver Coxon alla av hans personliga intressen som vi som läsare inte alls är intresserade av. A refreshing innocence to his prose’: Graham Coxon, far left, with Blur at a MTV awards show in Paris, 1995. Imposter syndrome and self-doubt rears their ugly head time and again for Coxon, who is tasked with dispelling it frequently. Take Coxon’s solo works as an example, his brief explanations and the influences of the time, from folk music to Sylvia Plath and his back-and-forth with alcoholism, are pasted throughout.This isn't the first time such allegations have been brought up, but this time the scope has changed. Coxon comes across as a well-read, in-touch artist hoping to marry his interests together despite the weight of his doubts. Det roligaste är att läsa om Coxons inspirationskällor till musiken och det bara regnar namn av stora musiker han stött på genom livet. I think this one lands above Will Sergeant's (first) volume and below Jeff Tweedy and Johnny Marr's for me.

There would be no need for him to jeopardise professional relationships as he is entitled to his opinion about his own experiences, there would be no reason for it to lead to mud-slinging. A recent piece in the Guardian noted the striking number of musicians in hardcore punk who had grown up as army kids.I can't help thinking that Graham might have enjoyed being in Radiohead more than he enjoyed being in Blur. Coxon can be lyrical when talking about the music he loves – from the Who to obscure US band Mission of Burma – but his tone is mostly matter-of-fact. Among the noise and clamour of the Britpop era, Blur co-founder Graham Coxon managed to carve out a niche to become one of the most innovative and respected guitarists of his generation - but it wasn't always easy.
