not sure if this is old news or not.


Jarvis Cocker has a song from his new album that you can preview on myspace.  Plus, a couple blog entries.  Not much, but the profile was just started at the beginning of the month.

britpop news

-Justine Frischmann is living in Colorado and studying visual arts and psychology at Naropa University

-Graham Coxon, the ex-Blur guitarist and now solo artist, has written a poetic tribute for Syd Barrett who recently died, citing the Pink Floyd founding member as one of his greatest musical influences.
"Lost him again… for bang on 20 years Syd led me to better places...
… from my age 17-year-old first listen of 'bike' to just the other
day… 'jugband blues'…
languished in his noise... and dreamt in his night… stared at his eyes for
answers... bent my ears to see his fingers… would have followed him into
the dark... certainly followed him into the bleached out morning… Syd,
dear man, what now?
The music is there… a door he left unlocked… spend time
there... it’s good."

-Hollywood movie mogul HARVEY WEINSTEIN is in talks with BLUR frontman DAMON ALBARN to produce a GORILLAZ movie. The former Miramax head visited Albarn and co-Gorillaz creator, artist JAMIE HEWLETT, to discuss a possible film starring the animated band at the band's recent New York gigs. Albarn says, "We're going to try and do something which makes the world not just think of WALLACE + GROMIT when they think of animation."

-Damon Albarn has revealed that he is currently juggling three different projects: the Blur EP, an album he's set to record in Nigeria with the surviving members of Fela Kuti's band and a new Gorillaz record.

He also said he would like Graham Coxon to rejoin the band.

"Blur's like a family with one brother no-one talks to," he told 6 Music, adding: "It is a realistic prospect - the only reason he's not in the band is because he didn't feel he was getting enough say. We're totally capable of making music together. I can forget about all the other things."

-Oasis is resting after their latest world tour

-Brett Anderson, former lead singer of Suede, is planning a solo album for early 2007

ill add more soon :)

Hi....what a great idea for a community (even though it's a bit quiet at the moment). Sometimes I feel like I'm the only britpop nerd in the Chicago area.

I also do an online radio thing. Britpop and related stuff! Check it out if you're bored.

Bizarre Love Triangle [May. 30th, 2005|03:32 pm]
Chicago BritPop
[mood |amusedamused]

Someone just posted this in one of the blur communities. It seems to be a joke from a British music mag. What a silly movie this would be! But would I go see it? Hell yes!

"britpop film gets green light"

the most torrid love story of modern times is to be made into a major hollywood film next year. plans are under way to dramatise the early 90s love triangle of damon albarn, justine frischmann, and brett anderson, with jude law and catherine zeta-jones rumoured to be interested in playing the first couple of britpop. "it's certainly a challange," enthuses tony slattery, fresh from the success of peter's friends, who will play the tormented fop brett anderson. "bringing the story alive will take imagination, consisisting as it does of stillted converstations in university corridors, shy glances from underneath haircuts, badly made joints, and uneventful visits to parents in the home counties. but we can make it sing." filming, under the watchful eye of an as-yet-unnamed director danny boyle, is due to start next may in miami, which will stand-in for pre-blair colchester.

bang july 2003
