Blur reunion just sort-of didn't happen in the end

So, whatever happened to that Blur reunion, then? The studio was booked, the hatchets buried, Alex James persuaded to not talk about cheese for five bloody minutes... and then: nothing.

Graham Coxon has told NME what happened:

"I think people thought, ‘Oh, it’s a bit too much, just jumping into a studio’," he said. "We met for a catch-up and it was great, but there was no real talk of recording. It doesn’t really bother me. I’ve got enough going on to feel happy and fulfilled."

We think this elaborate code for "we got a bit drunk and fell out a little", to be honest.
