About Graham Coxon

Just as Blur-mania gets its second wind, we have Graham Coxon their massively influential and highly respected guitarist, visiting the Civic Bar with a gig that will showcase his hugely popular solo material - talented man!
 
Graham Coxon (Blur guitarist) - Wolverhampton Civic Hall: Friday 15 May 2009

Graham Coxon had already released three solo albums while as a member of Blur before his 2002 departure. His first, released on his own Transcopic label was The Sky is Too High in 1998, a ramshackle mixture of English folk music and 1960s-style garage rock, influenced by Billy Childish. This was followed by the more extreme The Golden D in 2000 and the thoughtful Dylan-Drakesque Crow Sit on Blood Tree (2001). After going solo full time, he released The Kiss of Morning in 2002. The album proved to be his most accessible to date and was promoted with the single "Escape Song" which proved to be an interesting hybrid of Syd Barrett's "Octopus" and progressive rock trail-blazers The Nice. In 2004, Coxon released his fifth solo album Happiness in Magazines, produced by ex-Blur and The Smiths producer Stephen Street.

This proved to be his most successful album to date, and he received the NME Award for 'Best Solo Artist' in 2005.

Coxon's seventh 15-track studio album titled The Spinning Top, produced again by Stephen Street[2], will be released on May 11, 2009. Coxon says the LP, which is primarily acoustic, follows a narrative - the story of a man from birth to death.

Please note: this is an early show with doors opening at 18:00.
