It might be impossible to get Graham Coxon on board for the Blur reunion the group’s former bassist Alex James is hoping for (read more). Even before being ousted from Blur in 2002, Coxon was dropping solo albums, and his forthcoming effort, Love Travels At Illegal Speeds, is set to hit the States Nov. 14. Based on title alone, album opener “Standing On My Own” might be the anthem the singer/guitarist should have written when first released from Blur, but no one’s lamenting the break-up of that band anymore (except James), and the tune is just a ragged, guitar-driven Brit pop gem.
