From the guardian interview http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/j ... -hong-kong" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;



Watching Blur interact onstage it seems crazy to think that such a tight group probably wouldn’t even exist any more if it wasn’t for a festival in Tokyo being cancelled. That’s fate for you. Even now, James admits that, with all their hectic schedules, the band’s existence remains on a knife’s edge. So are we witnessing the last chapter of Blur? Rowntree thinks probably not; Albarn says it doesn’t concern him if it is or it isn’t; James says he hasn’t got a clue, he just treats every show like the last. Only Coxon answers with any certainty: “I think it probably is, yeah.”

And would he be content with that?

“Yeah, I think so.”

it was a good read except the last part but well, it's obvious that someday it would be the end...I don't know if it's only myself, but I got the impression that Graham was in a bad mood...

Graham was in a bad mood cause all these music journalists tend to ask the same stupid questions of him and damon and all that shit (even he said to the journalist ask me something people dont know and should be interesting -a word the journalist didnt seem to know what means-).
I dont know how a music journalist prepare an interview but i dont think this Guardian Journalist prepared a shit. Even Alex got "mad" about the photograph question so.. i think Graham said that just because he didnt want to keep with the interview, not cause he thinks blur is over after the gigs that are left.

At this point I think only time will tell. I also think that since blur have proved that they're still a creative force making brilliant music, doing some of the best gigs of their career, and all on the best terms they've ever been on, it's more likely than ever that blur has a future.

It kicked off on 4chan, to the point where Blur were being called "irrelevant Dadrock" and Graham a hypocrite.

It seems that the comments Graham did about Kanye "retarded" west, are being criticize a lot..so is this what are you saying? the 4chan thing?

Yeah, it's pretty obvious Graham was just pissed off, he's usually quite a nice guy when it comes to interviews. I guess people who don't know Graham will instantly assume he's just your typical Brit old bore, cause that's what that interview is portraying.

I do love Kanye but I don't give a fuck about what Graham thinks about him. He did sound like an old git during the whole interview but that's probably due to him being annoyed by the journalist. I mean, he had to ask him to change his questions :lol:
