Graham Coxon

Ex-Blur guitarist Coxon is back with another solo album and this one really is killer. The twanging guitars always associated with him are still around, but this time they are coupled with harmonicas, thrashing chords and all manner of harmonies.

Coxon throws in a good mix of arrangements on this release, with short, sharp punk bursts standing alongside sweetly sung ballads, showing that his versatility as a guitarist stretches to his vocals too.

Single Standing On My Ownagain is a stand out track, but it is the brilliant You & I which steals the show on this album. This album is a must for any fans of old school Blur, garage rock fans and anyone who appreciates a good bit of punking out.
