Blur – Coffee And TV (1999)

YouTube – Amazon –  iTunes – Discogs

Where to start with Blur… ‘Song 2’, ‘The Universal’, ‘Girls & Boys’. I have plumped for ‘Coffee And TV’. In 1999, their sixth long player 13 felt like a swan song after the much documented troubles within the band. Despite the divergence in musical direction, the missing son of the video, guitarist Graham Coxon, had been able to pull Blur along a new lo-fi Pavement/Beck-inspired path. So the milk carton falls for some strawberry milk, but only for a brief interlude before cruel fate intervenes. Blur would release one more album, Think Tank, in 2003, but do so without Coxon.
