謠言?獨家?

儘管NME一向以散佈不實消息與挑起紛爭聞名,但謠言總是會有成為獨家的時候。以下這則新聞,正讓我有此預感。

Blur reunion gets closer
Is Graham Coxon finally ready to return to the fold?

Rumours of a Blur reunion and new album with the original fourpiece were further fuelled today (January 7) by bassist Alex James.

Speaking in the Sunday Times newspaper, James – who is currently focusing on cheese making – said recent contact with estranged guitarist Graham Coxon led him to think “the time is right [for Coxon to rejoin].

“I’ve been talking to Graham and there might be some good news,” he said. “It’s by no means in the bag, but it looks quite promising. Maybe the time is right. We’ve always left the door open for him, so that’s what I’m hoping for.”

The remarks build on those made by James in November when he said he’d like Blur “have a happy four-piece ending.” At the time, it was also suggested that once frontman Damon Albarn finished live dates with current side project The Good, The Bad And The Queen in February, Blur would reconvene in a studio to begin work on what may be their final album.

James also said in December that he and Coxon had met up for the first time in a year and discussed reuniting.

Coxon left in 2002 during sessions for the ‘Think Tank’ album. The other three members carried on and finished the album without him.

我們的鄉村起司熊男在各媒體中已經是第無數次主動出擊了,「quite promising」也不知用了多少回。打從一開始,我就認為不管葛拉罕決定如何,模糊都會在之後解散。既然橫豎都是死,不如死得漂亮點、死得開心些。也才會有「happy four-piece ending」這樣的籌碼可以丟給葛拉罕作定奪吧。

而依照紅字部份的猜測來看,至少這會是最快實現的一則推論。以前在模糊的官方討論區就看過不少預測,2008年推出告別作還被說太樂觀呢。看來大家都被漫長的等待折磨得十分喪志。

(一方面要怪有人總是一心多用外務太多!又是猴子舞台劇又是沒完沒了的巨猩計畫,哼。)

其實我現在最想看到的是目前已成假性隱居狀態的熊男啊。不要再做起司了啦。
