Blur: The Return Of The Fab Four

Paul Mathur, Melody Maker, 12 August 1995

That rumble at the earth's core can only mean one thing — BLUR are back! With new single, 'Country House', out in ten days and their fourth album, The Great Escape, out in September, PAUL MATHUR speaks to DAMON ALBARN about writing, football, cockney accents and coping with fame; to GRAHAM COXON about being a great guitarist and not just a piss-artist; to ALEX JAMES about being the elder statesman of the Britpop aristocracy; and to DAVE ROWNTREE about his brand new aeroplane (true!).
