Damon Albarn Extends the Olive Branch

Following in the footsteps of recent band reconciliations like the Pixies, Damon Albarn of Blur is trying to lure Graham Coxon back to the fold. According to, Albarn says he’s “waiting for Graham to talk to me again."

"I'd love to see if we could make another record. I miss playing live in something that I grew up in. I do feel it's a shame that we didn't stick to it. Hopefully, we'll play together soon. As musicians, we need to spread peace and love.”

Both Albarn and Coxon have been occupied with non-Blur endeavors as of late. Albarn has been busy with the Gorillaz while Coxon is busy launching a fairly successful solo career. Albarn shouldn’t hold his breath, though, as Coxon told NME earlier this year that a Blur reconciliation is, “Not in the cards.”
