Verse, Chorus, Monster!: Graham Coxon
About this deal
Raised in Derbyshire and not rich, Coxon was particularly vexed when Blur were cast as posh southern kids to the more hardscrabble Oasis.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I recently attended one of Graham's book events where he described the writing process of the book (hours of interviews recorded which Rob Young then edited down to form the book). This book was a fascinating, often amusing, insight into Graham's life long battle with anxiety and addiction and his musical and artistic creative processes, particularly his solo work. I gained fascinating insights into Graham’s solo work which I did not know before, as well as his art, interests and spiritual beliefs. Detta kan man säga om varenda person i boken; Dave, Alex, alla hans romantiska partners, hans föräldrar osv.However, if I was being brutally honest with myself, I would have recognised that my reality was more like the quiet bloke in glasses who was making strange noises from the guitar. I think a cut and paste lo-fi This Is Memorial Device splatter blast of influences and incidents would have been more engaging; like much of the book, I get the impression Coxon needs steering towards the things he feels but cannot grasp.
one of my favourite autobiography, cried at some moments as it captures the 90’s and blur’s journey so well. 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. Typ när han beskriver alla hans turnér och gigs, han tar aldrig upp en som stod ut som kanske sedan leder till att beskriva en viktig sak om han eller bandet eller WHATEVER.Coxon felt the chord sequences, the art, the books, the love, the detached adoration, the distortion and the mess. Embarrassed to admit how excited I got when he mentioned his love of Eames furniture I was fully ready to invite him for a tour of the collection. Efter år av turnerande tillsammans är det inte orimligt att vilja testa något nytt på eget håll, men det är fint att dom hittar tillbaka till varandra.
