Graham Coxon: ‘Blur are ready to switch a tape recorder on’

Guitarist meeting up with Damon Albarn and co again

Blur look to be a step closer to recording new material – Graham Coxon has tweeted that they’re meeting up today (February 3).

The guitarist, writing on his Twitter page,, wrote that the four-piece were getting together for a hot drink and could end up recording.

“Now off to see the Blur boys and have coffee and maybe switch a tape recorder on!” he wrote.

When asked for more details he added: “We are having a meet-up, might get a guitar out.”

Last November Blur frontman Damon Albarn told NME that the band planned to reconvene in early 2011, but that firm plans were not locked down.

The band last released a single, ‘Fool’s Day’, in April 2010 as a limited-edition vinyl one-off for Record Store Day. Their last gig was headlining T In The Park in Scotland in July 2009.
