Ah, British bands and their caustic sniping. It appears that Mogwai is starting up again with Blur, following its first attack on the British lads in 1999, by writing nasty comments on their blog, www.mogwai.co.uk, about Blur’s recently announced reunion.
They write: "Anyone fancy a ‘Blur: Are Shite Once Again’ T-Shirt?" the blog read. "It seeeeeems as if the seminal britpop band called Blur want to get back together again to make astounding new music.
"This could have catastrophic effects on our youth and middle-aged citizens. As the world’s 4th biggest economy, Blur’s surprise re-union could have destabilizing ramifications which are too legion to be properly explained here.
"Only Patrick David Xavier McMeneman-McHanarahan, our specialist re-union specialist, can even start to describe the disastrous potency of this formative party’s re-grouping on the world’s already dangerous pre-apocalyptic position.
"He says, ‘Their imperial designs know no bounds and we will have to use all of our vigor and guile to disperse this potential doomsday-making scenario else we sprint toward a life-ending britalocalypse.’
Then, in a more personal effect, they write:
"He added: ‘Damon Albarn: Taller than a Chinese tree; Graham Coxon: Not a bumblebee; Dave Rowntree: Diddy Doo Diddly Doo Labour loser Doo Diddly Doo; Alex James: Cheese master in more ways than one.’"
Maybe Mogwai figured that it worked for Oasis. However, Blur is not responding, just as it did not respond the first time that Mogwai threw insults its way, indicating that might be (or consider themselves) above these type of shenanigans.
