Former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon on why Brits write off American bands as lazy. In this edition of Soft Focus, Ian speaks with former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon. Graham discusses his mixed feelings about being dragged through the whole Blur vs. Oasis media circus and Ian makes light of Graham’s drinking problem. They touch briefly on astrology before diving headlong into dissertations on the socio-economic factors that elevate music over visual art. Before bidding a fond adieu Ian and Graham discuss the ongoing tragedy that is post-grunge/Oasis rock fashion and follow that train of thought to its logical end: The Osmond Family and Apocalypse Now
