I think that it is Graham's right - as well as being essential for his mental health - to 'hold back' information that does not add anything to that basic premise. Graham Coxon manages that with his solo work, Blur reunions and his recent memoir, Verse, Chorus, Monster! Skipping through the glory days of Blur and their Parklife period, Coxon instead focuses on the music which means the most to him and the processes which pulled him from the personal tumult. i've recently caught myself thinking how there are a lot of repetitive stuff in autobiographies, and i wonder why editors do nothing about it. Written with the journalist Rob Young – author of Electric Eden, a primer on British folk music’s transporting qualities – Coxon’s memoir does not reveal anything very new about a much-catalogued era.

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. Reading this book made me identify more with Graham Coxon as he discussed his anxieties and struggles with confidence / mental health. First Dave Rowntree releases a solo LP, then Alex James appears all over BBC documentary Sensationalists, and now we get the Graham Coxon autobiography - it seems the 'other' members of Blur are finally getting their solo moments in the spotlight.

There are moments in the book when you feel he has obviously self edited to avoid getting into discussing situations that could easily open up the floodgates of negativity.

He wishes for his work to be open and in doing so provide some help to those who need it, as his music does, particularly Superstate.this tries to balance being a light read (which I do believe it partly achieves, this is super easy to read - and this is coming from a person who is allergic to nonfic) and serving as a look into the creative process. Under en period levde Coxon på billigt rödvin och ost, efter att han fått för sig att bli vegetarian p.

Jag var både oerhört inspirerad av hans spelande samt konst, och han var faktiskt en stor motivator till att jag spelade gitarr (eller iallafall fortsatte). Coxon’s MO as their guitarist often involved lobbing “anti-solos” into the machinery, the band’s sceptical counterweight. There were also many times throughout the book where I felt he skimmed over any of his own short-comings and the impact that he may have had on situations instead I felt he chose to quietly point the finger at whoever the other person was without directly saying so.Like the feminist punk scene in the 90s, folk was another tribe from which Coxon (the notional “pop star”) expected a rebuff. 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.
