Blur Not Out for the Count Quite Yet

By shane

So after Blur pretty much definitively said that they were done following last year's heralded reunion shows, we were left again mourning the loss of our Britpop heroes once more to a sea of less-than-great solo projects, failed bids at Parliament, and worse-every-time Gorillaz records. That's why we were all in shock to see Blur release a quick limited edition 7" last month as part of the global hoo-ha to celebrate International Record Store Day. While the 7" was only available in the UK (boo! hiss!), we were stunned at how good the track "Fool's Day" was, which made their decision to again split all the more painful. BUT WAIT... because Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn is in NME today waxing poetic about the prospect of MORE new Blur releases... but only in the form of the occasional 7", as the members claim they're waaay too busy to bust out with a whole new album. We'll take what we can get.
