July 31, 2001 - Blur frontman Damon Albarn had pretty much given up on having success in the United States. Two Blur records--1997's self-titled effort and 1999ís "13"--were modest hits, but thatís as big an impact the English pop band was able to make.
August 28, 2000 - Brit-pop cad, painter, record label honcho, skateboarder--think of Blur guitarist Graham Coxon as a post-Millennial Renaissance man. While his first solo effort "The Sky's Too High" could be considered a woozy case of mega-rocker sings the blues, his latest, "The Golden D," is hair-gripping punk glee that spits out MC5-like rave-ups and crude sonic sketches. It's both experimental and fanatical (he faithfully covers Mission to Burma's "Fame and Fortune" and "That's When I Reach for My Revolver").
