We’ve said nothing in any of our interviews – we’re probably the only band in history to do that. Dave just says nothing. Alex says nothing in an Alex way. Graham says nothing in a very negative way. I say nothing in a roundabout way. We do it on purpose because there is very little to say; it’s all about feeling. Our generation doesn’t need a spokesman.

Graham has obsessions. At the moment it’s American hardcore. They last from six to eight months, and it’s very hard for him to see anything else.

You know Manchester is always a bit of a hard place for people coming from London, just with all the history. Manchester has this immensely huge and healthy history musically.

With my daughter, who at the time was one, my domestic life needed to take more precedent and really with my own self I needed to develop quite a bit more. So that put Blur down the list of priorities quite a lot by the time I came to thinking about it.

Graham Coxon

There’s a focus that hasn’t been there for ages and ages and some American bands are sounding quite English like they did in the late 70s and early 80s.

There were some extremely good teachers there that were great artists really in their own right. It was actually very hard to concentrate on getting down to going any work being an art student especially when it’s a flighty thing at best.

There are a lot of people who can do it on the guitar and sing at the same time, but I think what is harder is bass players that can play the bass and sing.

Graham Coxon

Playing and singing at the same time is pretty cool, but sometimes it’s difficult to know when you can just really let go a bit because you’ve got to get back to bloody microphone and sing some stuff.

Graham Coxon

Manchester has it’s own pride and London has it’s sort of pride and sometimes we can be a bit mean to each other, but I think if we dig the music we can get on really well.

Graham Coxon

It’s the faster bands that made me want to play guitar, bands like The Jam.
