Because teasing me and raising my hopes to Herculean levels and then crushing them brutally by never touring America is his cruel game, Damon Albarn has been dropping hint that Blur may be reuniting for the second time in two years. But, before your hopes start shooting for the sky, according to Spinner, the project will be “small”:
“The band reformed in 2009 after years in the wilderness to play a number of large-scale shows and festival appearances, but at the time it was said to be their very last hurrah.
“But, as Sky News reports, frontman Damon Albarn has gone on record confirming that the Britpop band have since met up — and have discussed ‘doing something’ early next year.
“He said, ‘We did talk about doing something in January, something small, no career-based world domination ideas.’”
No, Damon, please! World dominion is fine—seriously, if you don’t do it first, the Gallagher brothers are just going to get Oasis back together again, and I really don’t want to have to crack open this hollow tooth to find my cyanide capsule just over that. The world needs you now more than ever, Albarn (but not Gorillaz).
What would you think of another Blur reunion?
