Blur’s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon reunite at NME Shockwaves Awards

Posted February 26th, 2009 by eric

Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon made a surprise appearance at the NME Shockwaves Awards, taking the stage after almost a decade to play a low-key version of its classic “This Is A Low” from the Parklife album, of course. Unfortunately, no videos of the performance have leaked yet (that I can find), but this post-show interview is available, wherein Damon and Graham discuss the last minute decision to play and how rehearsals for the coming summer’s full-fledged Blur shows are going. Albarn admits he’s the one who needs the most practice, as everyone else in the band knows their respective bits, especially Graham who “can play everything.”

UPDATE: Here’s a link to footage of the performance on YouTube (embedding is disabled, unfortunately). And word just in on a confirmed new album to commence recording in 2009.
