Blur Reunion Show Predictably Terrific


On Saturday, before an audience of 150, Blur played its first concert as a four-piece in a decade, at Essex, England's East Anglian Railway Museum (it's where they performed one of their earliest gigs) — and some wonderful person has uploaded video of practically the entire show. Since Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon have been onstage plenty these past few years, promoting non-embarrassing solo records, we knew their chops would still be in pretty good shape. But it's nice to see that Alex James and Dave Rowntree's new grown-up jobs (food writer for The Independent and Labour Party politician, respectively) haven't cost them their rocking abilities — "Girls and Boys" sounds pretty much as great as it did in 1994.

And, just for the hell of it, here's "Coffee & TV":
