Inside The Song with Graham Coxon from Blur - Song 2
Produce Like A Pro Click here to learn more about Blur's "Song 2": https://producelikeapro.com/blog/inside-the-song-song-2-by-blur-with-graham-coxon/ Blur is an English rock band formed in 1988, consisting of vocalist Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James, and drummer Dave Rowntree. The band was central to the 1990s Britpop movement. They achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided greatly by a chart battle with rivals Oasis in 1995, which was dubbed the “Battle of Britpop”. Their self-titled fifth album, released in 1997, incorporated influences from the lo-fi styles of American indie rock groups, and the album became their third to top UK charts. “Song 2” is the second track, and the single, from this self-titled album. This song was atypical of Blur’s previous style as it sounds the least like the rest of the band’s Britpop catalogue. When the band originally wrote the song, they wanted to play it for their label as a joke, because they thought it was far too noisy and horrible to ever be released as a single. However, the label loved it! The song was written to poke fun at the Grunge music that was bog in America at the time. Graham Coxon was tired of doing complicated parts and wanted to do something simple, but horrible and make as much noise as possible. The song was tracked in Maison Rouge Studio, with the vocals recorded live, and lots of fuzz and distortion on the guitar, producing the loud, extreme sound Coxon was aiming for. The song also featured two drum kits, with Dave Rowntree and Graham Coxon both banging on the drums simultaneously. The track’s title was originally just a working title, representing the track’s placement on the album, but the name stuck. In the end, the numerology works out well, as the song is not only the second song on the album, but is 2 minutes and 2 seconds long, features 2 verses and 2 choruses, and eventually peaked at #2 on UK charts.

Inside The Album with Graham Coxon from Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish
Produce Like A Pro https://www.youtube.com/user/WarrenHuartRecording/featured Sign up here to get exclusive videos and content http://producelikeapro.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T93y4b3vIuo Learn more about the making of "Modern Life is Rubbish": https://bit.ly/39Z5DaS Modern Life is Rubbish, released in May 1993, is the second studio album by English alternative rock band Blur. The album was a moderate chart success in the UK, peaking at number 15, while the singles from the album charted in the Top 30. Modern Life is Rubbish is regarded as one of the defining releases of the Britpop scene, and Blur’s chart-topping follow-up albums Parklife and The Great Escape, allowed the band to emerge as one of Britain’s leading pop acts. Before releasing this album, Blur had faced serious backlash from the media following the release of their first album, Leisure, in 1991. The band had fallen from public favour and was under threat of being dropped by their label. At the same time, Blur discovered that they were £60,000 in debt, due to mismanagement. Blur hired a new manager, who sent them to the US to try to recoup their losses, but the tour was unsuccessful. When Blur began working on their second album, they chose Andy Partridge as their producer. Partridge was dissatisfied with the songs, but was fond of the band, which is why he agreed to the project. These sessions, however, did not last long and did not go well. Bassist Alex James described the sessions as a “disaster”. Work on Modern Life is Rubbish resumed due to a chance meeting with producer Stephen Street, who had worked with the band previously on their 1991 single, “There’s No Other Way.” With Street now producing the album, Blur recorded a mix of material spanning both the period immediately after the release of Leisure and their 1992 tour. Though their label initially rejected the album and told the band to record more potential singles, the members of the band were pleased with the sessions. https://www.grahamcoxon.com Sign up here to get exclusive videos and content http://producelikeapro.com #ProduceLikeAPro #HomeRecording #InsideTheSong

That Pedal Show – Graham Coxon On Life, Music, Gear & Inspiration
Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below. In this episode we welcome the wonderful, enigmatic and popular-music-changing Graham Coxon to the show. Graham is a founding member of legendary British band, Blur who reigned alongside Oasis at the top of the 1990s Britpop scene. They’ve sold millions of records and go down as one of the most famous and successful British bands ever. Graham also has a successful solo career and he does soundtracks too. Coxon’s unorthodox, visceral approach to guitar and music is influenced by – and continues to influence – a long line of alternative players who eschew a traditional scales-and-‘correct’-technique approach in favour simply whatever works best in the context of the music. Quite a bit of this video centres around that whole discussion as it unfolds into a fascinating and inspiring insight into what's going on inside his head. Recollections of a few classic Blur guitar moments are the icing on the cake. Please note that there’s not a huge amount of playing in this video. That Pedal Shed is entirely out of context with Graham’s usual worlds of all-encompassing live performance, immersive songwriting and in-the-moment recording. He is a true artist and we thank him warmly for his insight and candour in this video… and of course his colossal contribution to British music. We asked Graham if he’d like to plug any current activity in this video. He’s way too modest for all of that, so please check out www.grahamcoxon.co.uk and sign up to his newsletter to find out what’s going on in his world.

Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below. This episode is an edit of some extra bits we filmed when Graham Coxon came to visit for the main video in March 2018. You can watch the main, full-length show here: https://youtu.be/_ijyk89uOCI One of the reasons for Graham’s visit was that he wanted Dan to put together a separate pedalboard that he could use for various creative projects: he wanted something portable but versatile; different but familiar; capable of inspiration over complication. So this episode comprises a quick flick through that board as Graham plugs in for the first time, interspersed with some Coxon gems as you would rightly expect. It’s not a full episode per sé, but loads of people have asked for the extra footage from the day. So here it is… We are massively grateful to Graham for giving us his time and sharing his insight and experience – what a privilege!

Gray Guitars presents - Graham Coxon (Blur, solo artist) - interview, riffs, history and gear
Graham Coxon is simply one of the finest musicians of his generation. The music of Blur helped to define British music in the 90s, with classic albums such as Parklife, Blur and 13 being the high water marks of guitar-led popular music. Graham's use of the guitar as sonic architecture knew no bounds - his experimentation with effects and textures was only matched by his incredible ability to create memorable riffs, melodies and solos within Blur's eclectic and unique songs. Graham breaks down some of his most iconic riffs - Parklife, Song 2, Bugman, No Distance Left To Run and There's No Other Way are all played and their back stories revealed. Graham talks about his acoustic playing, Blur's early days and gives very personal comments about his writing partner and lifelong friend, Damon Albarn. I am super proud to have Graham playing my guitars and I had a exceptionally enjoyable day recording the audio and video for this promo. For all fans of Graham and Blur - I am one of you. Being able to sit with Graham and listen to him playing the guitar one-to-one was a humbling experience and one that I will never forget.

Gray Guitars presents Graham Coxon and Stephen Street - talking 'Blur', 'Parklife' and much more
Gray Guitars is super proud to present this film that explores the creation of one of British Rock's finest modern albums 'Blur' by Blur. Tom Gray chats openly and exclusively with Graham Coxon and super producer, Stephen Street on the 20th anniversary of the album that included classics such as 'Beetlebum', 'Song 2', 'On Your Own', 'MOR' and 'Chinese Bombs'. Stephen is a legend in his own right, engineering, composing and producing for The Smiths, Blur, The Cranberries, The Kaiser Chiefs amongst many more. The film became longer than any of us expected and runs at over an hour. As a huge Blur/Coxon/Street fan, I simply could not bring myself to cut any of the footage out! We talk of 'Blur', recording techniques, riffs, songs and lyrics. We touch on musical influences, guitar chords, guitar pedals and recording techniques amongst many other subjects. We naturally got onto the subject of 'Parklife - how the title track almost never made it to the record, it's appeal to this day and the sources of inspiration for it's inception. Rough running order! 0 - 40 minutes: the 'Blur' album 40 - 50 minutes: guitar influences 50 - 70 minutes: 'Parklife' I hope you enjoy it! Maybe watch it in bits or sit through the whole shebang!
