Mogwai: ‘Blur: are shite once again’

Scottish band slag off Damon Albarn and co once more

Mogwai have re-opened their feud with Blur following the news that Damon Albarn and co have reformed and will play two gigs at London’s Hyde Park next year.

In 1999, the Mogwai baited Blur by selling t-shirts with the slogan ‘Blur: Are Shite’ adorned on them. The band went on to claim that ’78 percent of people agree that Blur are shite’. Blur refused to be drawn into a war of words.

Now, following the band’s reformation, they have re-opened their slanging session, by writing a blog on their website,


“Anyone fancy a ‘Blur: Are Shite Once Again’ T-Shirt?” the blog read. “It seeeeeems as if the seminal britpop band called Blur want to get back together again to make astounding new music.

“This could have catastrophic effects on our youth and middle-aged citizens. As the world’s 4th biggest economy, Blur‘s surprise reunion could have destabilizing ramifications which are too legion to be properly explained here.

“Only Patrick David Xavier McMeneman-McHanarahan, our specialist reunion specialist, can even start to describe the disastrous potency of this formative party’s regrouping on the world’s already dangerous pre-apocalyptic position.

“He says, ‘Their imperial designs know no bounds and we will have to use all of our vigor and guile to disperse this potential doomsday-making scenario else we sprint toward a life-ending britalocalypse.’

“He added: ‘Damon Albarn: Taller than a Chinese tree; Graham Coxon: Not a bumblebee; Dave Rowntree: Diddy Doo Diddly Doo Labour loser Doo Diddly Doo; Alex James: Cheese master in more ways than one.'”
