Graham Coxon Illegal Speed

(PR) Graham Coxon's new album 'Love Travels At Illegal Speeds' will hit stores on November 14th via EMI UK / Parlophone. Yes, breaking up is hard to do, but everyone knows the best revenge is living well - especially Graham Coxon. His departure from Blur six years ago was marked by Anglophiles as something that required a moment of silence, but out of this schism came something absolutely glorious: Graham Coxon's astounding solo career that has covered lengthy territory in the guitar trajectory only to land us in a place where Love Travels at Illegal Speeds. Hailed as his best album to date within the British music press, Love Travels at Illegal Speeds shows our Graham at his finest, replacing introspective experimentalism with taut, finely crafted melodies, astute arrangements and a truly strong voice, both literally and figuratively.

Produced by Stephen Street (who was responsible for Blur's Parklife and Modern Life is Rubbish), Love Travels at Illegal Speeds, Coxon's fourth album in the US and his sixth solo effort overall, is his most vulnerable, honest album of his career. After a stint in rehab battling alcohol addiction in late 2001, the album shows Graham with a renewed sense of confidence - the songs are reflective, focused and pushed Coxon to write about things with such a brutal openness that it startled even him when he was making the record. Most of the songs reference all the punk rock greats - because, if 13 taught us anything, it's that Coxon is most comfortable outside of the margins - so while there are some licks that remind you of the Buzzcocks or the Jam or the Knack, the melodies come right from the heart of the man we know and love, the man who helped define a new breed of British Pop music to a generation of music fans hungry for a voice.
