Graham Coxon of Blur prepares for the end of the world at El Club

by

comment
One of the most contentious feuds of the ’90s was a Britpop battle: Blur vs. Oasis. While there may never be a clearly defined winner, Graham Coxon from team Blur has been going it alone for quite some time and doing a bloody good job.

Most recently, though, the 49-year-old has ventured into scoring, making his triumphant composing debut for the 2018 Netflix series The End of The F***ing World, which showcases his toolbox of singer-songwriter sensibilities. Coxon has recently gone on record to say that Blur may still have a future despite a three-year hiatus — and for that, we can let out a unified “woo-hoo.”

Graham Coxon will perform at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20 at El Club; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets are $30.
