Director of Blur’s new film ‘To The End’: “This is about friendship and brotherhood”

Blur‘s new documentary To The End has spoken to NME about the emotional process of making the film – and what the future might hold for the band.The film, directed by Transgressive Records founder Toby L, follows the reunion of Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree on their return to record 2023 comeback album ‘The Ballad Of Darren’ ahead of a tour culminating in pair of shows at London’s Wembley Stadium last summer.However, with Albarn reeling from his split from his long-term partner Suzi Winstanley after 25 years, and some struggle for other members to return to being in an arena band, the road back isn’t as smooth at first as they’d hoped.In a five-star review of To The End, NME concluded: “They bicker, they hug, they call each other c**ts, they get the job done. While Blur’s last doc and accompanying live movie No Distance Left To Run was a portrait of a band celebrating their legacy and giving a nostalgia-hungry world exactly what they craved, this spiritual sequel shows a band simply supporting each other.

Noel Gallagher has said Glastonbury 2024 got “a bit woke” for his liking.Gallagher, who first performed at Worthy Farm with Oasis in 1994, did clarify that despite his various gripes, the festival was “probably the best fucking thing about Britain apart from the Premier League.”“Don’t get me wrong, I fucking love Glastonbury,” he told The Sun after the festival had concluded.“It’s getting a bit woke now, that place, and a bit kind of preachy and a bit virtue-signalling,” he continued. “I don’t like it in music, little fucking idiots waving flags around and making political statements and bands taking the stage and saying, ‘Hey guys, isn’t war terrible, yeah? Let’s all boo war.
