Graham Coxon has been confirmed as the main support for Paul Weller’s show at the Jodrell Bank observatory. Live From Jodrell Bank sees artists performing large-scale outdoor concerts in the shadow of the iconic Lovell telescope, one of the biggest and most powerful radio telescopes in the world and the Blur lead guitarist and solo artist is a welcome addition to what is shaping up to be a spectacular bill.
Graham releases his highly anticipated 8th solo album ‘A + E’ on 2nd April and his records mix alt-rock, folk and lo-fi with consummate ease. Graham Coxon is revered by his musical peers being described by Noel Gallagher as ‘the most gifted guitarist of his generation’ and has previously collaborated with Paul Weller on the single ‘This Old Town’.
Graham recently picked up the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award with Blur at the NME Awards and his set will be the perfect prelude to the Modfather taking the stage.
Baxter Dury showcases the expertly constructed psychedelic pop joy of his ‘Happy Soup’ album. His sharp portraits of odd ball characters and hook laden storytelling have marked him out as a wordsmith of some renown and his self professed ‘seaside psychadelia’ is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Collaborators of choice to the A-list, Little Barrie have also been added to a sonically charged line up. Having worked with Primal Scream, The Chemical Brothers, Spiritualized and Paul Weller himself, the band’s lead guitarist Barrie Cadogan is often referred to as the greatest guitarist of his generation and his band bring their undiluted rock n’ roll swagger to Jodrell Bank for what is set to be an unforgettable live performance.
