Graham Coxon on World Cafe The Britpop band, Blur, made some of the most iconic music of the '90s, including "Song 2". But founding guitarist, Graham Coxon, has also released several solo albums, and his latest is a beautiful soundtrack for the Netflix series The End of The Bleeping World. That’s the radio friendly title of the show, a dark comedy about two teenagers. Today, Graham performs live in the studio and talks with host Stephen Kallao about writing the score's short songs – "fun sized," as Graham calls them. That's coming up, on the next World Cafe.
The Blurguitarist and prolific solo artist shares beautiful, fun-sized songs he wrote for the Netflix series The End of the F***ing World.
When you work at World Cafe, you quickly realize you are not making an episode entirely on your own schedule. The biggest moving pieces are, of course, the guests. We hope to catch them for a few hours as they criss-cross the country in search of sharing their craft and art with an audience, and hopefully some merch sales. It's part of our job to be ready then, for the tiniest of windows. When we realized we'd have 45 minutes to record a session with Graham Coxon, Blur guitarist and prolific solo artist, we figured that's the tiniest window we could work with.
