Probably the only really unexpected information in the whole text is that during the recording of The Spinning Top he started drinking again and supposedly finally quit in 2017.
Inte bara att den inte känns personlig (som jag kommer komma in på lite senare) men bara att jag känner ingen koppling till någon eller något Coxon beskriver. Take Coxon’s solo works as an example, his brief explanations and the influences of the time, from folk music to Sylvia Plath and his back-and-forth with alcoholism, are pasted throughout.Faber Members get access to live and online author events and receive regular e-newsletters with book previews, promotional offers, articles and quizzes.
One glance at the music press back then would have revealed that Coxon, bespectacled, sharp and into American music as much as the Kinks, was not always thrilled at his band’s direction of travel. Much has been written about the tensions within the band at certain points but this is largely skimmed over within the book, very little opinion is ever given, Graham sugar coats the facts.Tack Graham Coxon, du har nu tagit några tiotal av timmar från mitt liv som jag nu aldrig kan få tillbaka. i would love a more of a deep dive in his inspo and process, otherwise here it just ends up sounding like an endless list at times and just a paragraph dedicated to a particular project that doesn't rlly get to the essence of anything at all. is an intimate, honest reflection on music, fame, addiction and art by one of Britain’s most iconic musicians.
Coxon moves swiftly through his career in the 300 pages with Blur's rise happening in almost the blink of an eye.
With classics such as Ted Hughes's The Iron Man and award-winners including Emma Carroll's Letters from the Lighthouse, Faber Children's Books brings you the best in picture books, young reads and classics. Under Blurs sämsta period, då bandet var splittrade i sina privatliv, umgicks Coxon i en slags riot grrrl krets. Jag var både oerhört inspirerad av hans spelande samt konst, och han var faktiskt en stor motivator till att jag spelade gitarr (eller iallafall fortsatte).
