Blur legend Alex James recently spread awareness among his fans about the scammers who impersonate to be James’ social media team and sending out messages. Here is what he wrote:
“Hi All, we’ve had reports of scammers sending messages to my followers, pretending to be my ‘social team’. Please ignore and report these accounts if applicable. Cheers.”

The Blur fans were saddened to hear of the passing away of John Davis who was a truly wonderful audio mastering engineer who mastered numerous records of all major Damon Albarn’s projects – solo, Blur, Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, Monkey… – and many many other artists you know and love, from Led Zeppelin to Lana Del Rey. It is needless to mention that he was such a lovely human being and a big fan of Damon’s work, too.
Damon Albarn said:
“The dark arts of mastering have always amused and fascinated me. John is an adept and I’ve always enjoyed watching him cast his mercurial magic.”
It has been also noted that Blur, R.E.M., Garbage, Idlewild and more are set to reissue albums from the 1990s for next month’s National Album Day via NME. It was announced earlier this year that National Album Day will take place on October 14 and feature a special spotlight on the ’90s. Other artists set to reissue records on the day include Fatboy Slim, Bob Dylan, Wu-Tang Clan, Jeff Buckley and more.
