The Graham book thing was a joke I think.

He also said that "Blur are done", so I have learned not to trust anything he says. But this year has provided hope.

I hope the possibility of Graham's art book wasn't a joke, he did say "watch this space" when someone asked him about it on reddit. fingers crossed!

I always assumed it was a running joke but I didn't know he'd said that on reddit (then I still don't even know what reddit is, so it doesn't help :lol: )

I'd definitely buy it if ever it were true. Love his art. I'm always in awe at his albums' booklets...

Why have we stopped talking about how beautiful My Terracotta Heart is? Probably Damon's sweetest chorus since (ahem) Sweet Song's. And that bassline.

Nasty to see Mumford ahead of TMW, but a good placing nonetheless! So far the 3rd(?) albums of the year list that it's appeared on.

Radio X is a pile of dung. I wouldn't let that bother you.
