Alex James: My future lies in cheese

Bassist contemplates a change of direction

Blur bassist Alex James has revealed that he is ready to start producing his own cheese.

The musician, who also releases music with both Fat Les and Wigwam revealed his new plans in his regular column in The Independent.

“The more I think about cheese,” wrote James, “the more I like it and the more I want some, which is why I’m taking matters into my own hands and venturing into the world of independent cheese making.”

“My heart always beats a little bit faster in the cheese aisle of a French supermarket,” added the star. “The Italians, too, eat more cheese than us, as do the Danes. Danish cheese is not as well known, but well worth exploring.”

Meanwhile, as previously reported by NME.COM, James‘ fellow Blur member Damon Albarn‘s new band The Good, The Bad & The Queen are set to release their debut single ‘Herculean’ on October 30.
