Graham Coxon: 'I'm raring to record with

Coxon, who left Blur in 2002, has spoken about his
band's imminent reunion, saying he is "raring to record".
Alex James had
previously explained to
that he was excited about plans for the band to record
together, after drummer Dave
Rowntree revealed the band had set aside a week to
record together as a four piece for the first time since 2002.

talking. I talk to Alex
the most. But there's four individuals in the band," he said.
"We're all really busy, but there's definitely a week [when
we're going to record].
"I'm just raring to record,"
he added. "But anything could happen. An alligator could come
out of the Thames and
eat the Tate Modern
while I'm in it, or a mosquito could come and kill us all."
When asked what the new
Blur material would sound like,
Coxon joked, tongue
firmly in cheek, that "there would be ten tracks, recorded on
a 16-track, and all the songs will have loads of guitar on
