BLUR - VIEW EXHIBITION AND MORE B-SIDES
Blur are offering fans the opportunity to view two of the highlights of the band's 1999 tenth anniversary - the exhibition from London's Hoxton Square a B-sides gig from London Camden Electric Ballroom.

By accessing the blur:x website at www.blurx.co.uk fans can also listen to a jukebox showcasing all Blur's singles.

The exhibition, which ran last September 11 & 12 at the Lux Gallery in London's Hoxton Square, featured a variety of art installations by and about the four members. The website is posting 360: images of the rooms used, available to anyone who downloads IPix plugins.

The B-sides show, which took place on September 6 last year, was a precursor to the release of Blur's singles box set, a collection of every single and B-side they had ever released, which appeared on September 27.

Meanwhile, the Blur members have been working on a variety of side projects.

Damon Albarn has recently been in studio with Primal Scream collaborator Dan The Automator. It is believed they were working through ideas for Albarn's debut solo album, though it is unclear exactly when this will see the light of day.

Guitarist Graham Coxon has also been working on new solo material, the follow up to 'The Sky Is Too High' from 1998. Bassist Alex James is gearing up for the release of 'Jerusalem', the single he and Fat Les cohorts are putting forward as the unofficial soundtrack to the England football team's Euro 2000 bid, under the updated Fat Les 2000 banner.

Drummer Dave Rowntree is said to have been working through animation ideas for MTV.

They will reassemble as Blur for a performance at Scott Walker's Meltdown Festival on July 2.
