Tube: Old Street What do you get if you lock a cheese- making columnist, a trained pilot whos running as a Labour parliamentary candidate, a skateboard fanatic and a primate obsessive in a room together? answer: Britpops answer to the Beatles, and the biggest band we never got to say goodbye to. Since Blur never officially split, their hiatus was like a relationship break only one party wants. the boys drifted apart after asking Graham Coxon to stop attending rehearsals, recording 2003s think tank without him. Disbanding might have been the best thing Blur ever did. they left us salivat- ing, and also left themselves wanting more, it would seem. they dont need the cash, that much is clear. Bassist alex James has children named ar temis, Geronimo and agamemnon, names only those in the highest tax bracket can even consider. (Okay, so we made one of them up, but youll never guess which.) Its as if Damon albarn really wanted to rub the Gallagher brothers noses in it one more time. hey! Look up here!, you could almost hear him howling from the main stage at Glasto. My bands still bigger than yours! So how did it all happen? I got to the rehearsal studio and Graham was playing Shes So high, says James of the bands first comeback rehearsal. I joined in, then Rowntree started banging along. Damon ar rived and said Shall we do Beetlebum?, and it sounded like it did 10 years ago. Of course they didnt sound the same as 10 years ago. Just like a nice brie, Blur have become even better with age. MARTHA DE LACEY Blurreunion willbelikea niceoldbrieblur The Britpop band play hyde Park on Thursday and Friday.
