Probably the only really unexpected information in the whole text is that during the recording of The Spinning Top he started drinking again and supposedly finally quit in 2017. Firstly because I thought Coxon was an alright bloke but he really hasn’t held back in showing everyone his true self. So what would a recovering alcoholic who suffers from anxiety hope to achieve by 'dishing the dirt' on ex partners and members of Blur?

Information surfaced that Comrade Coxon was communicating with his young female fans a little closer than is considered appropriate. And some of them may even be lurking inside yourself…is an intimate, honest reflection on music, fame, addiction and Art by one of Britain’s most iconic musicians”. Graham Coxon is an affable guy and a bit self-deprecating for some but it's those creative odds that pull Blur into different directions. Dessa delar var också bra, jag tyckte han beskrev det i bra detalj, och jag kunde faktiskt förstår VARFÖR han kände/gjorde som han gjorde.

Curiosare tra gli aneddoti, la nascita, l’infanzia, il primo “illuminante”- relativamente ai loro due diversissimi animi - incontro con Damon - poco più che undicenni, lui timido e privo di autostima che impatta con un coetaneo sicuro, di successo e strafottente. Graham has covered the Blur break up in interviews in recent years and so there is no real need to provide any more detail. This is a great book for any fan of the band or the era, casting light on an alternative side of the phenomenon that was easy to take against, but still made me singalong and dance like a fool. This was something that I hadn't heard directly from the mouth/pen of any of the bands members except for in interviews from around the time. Graham Coxon manages that with his solo work, Blur reunions and his recent memoir, Verse, Chorus, Monster!

With classics such as Ted Hughes's The Iron Man and award-winners including Emma Carroll's Letters from the Lighthouse, Faber Children's Books brings you the best in picture books, young reads and classics.

He was fairly quiet in my often watched video copy of Starshaped, compared to the two floppy haired running attractive flirts. Unica luce portante e piena di senso è l’amore appassionato e travolgente per la musica e l’arte grafica, amore che lo possiede totalmente, abitandone sogni, notti, risvegli e incubi, e le cui ispirazioni (come certi riff e strofe musicali e alcune immagini e pareidolie) giungono da un altrove non identificabile e lo costringono con urgenza insopprimibile a rielaborare le arie su uno strumento o a disegnarne le tracce e le emozioni come temporanea pausa dall’ansia. For some reason, when Blur burst onto the music scene in the early 90s, I really wanted to identify with the energy and confidence of Damon Albarn who would jump and leap around the stage like he was naturally the centre of the universe. Someone else wrote in their review that they ended up liking him less after reading the book and I know exactly what they mean. We hardly ever reached our last number without Damon being sick or the amps kneeling over and smashing".

The book does skim over his personal relationships a bit, but they're personal for a reason, and there are other people to think about. In music, though, he found a tribe, and in alcohol, a balm for his deep-rooted anxiety and the “constant buzz of embarrassment”. An incredibly intuitive and talented musician, Coxon spends most of the book writing as if he's anything but, afflicted with crushing doubts about his own abilities both as a musician and a Human Being. I gained fascinating insights into Graham’s solo work which I did not know before, as well as his art, interests and spiritual beliefs. Coxon comes across as a well-read, in-touch artist hoping to marry his interests together despite the weight of his doubts.funny how old friendships and relationships shape us up when we are young and finding out who we are. one of my favourite autobiography, cried at some moments as it captures the 90’s and blur’s journey so well. even if you do not listen to blur or grahams music, you should definitely read this as it talks more about sobriety and struggles through fame than the music itself. A hard-working musician and broad creative who cemented his personal legacy years before but cannot help contributing more to an already stuffed case file of quality.
