Well, my Saturday morning wasn’t quite as relaxing as I’d hoped on Friday. My laptop broke down. Okay, actually, I knocked the screen’s lights out in frustration about a broken power supply cable. After I’d decided to empty my iPod so I could refill it with higher bitrated songs. So it’s pretty empty now, and the only Blur album that actually made it before the crash is the self-titled one. As I always have a little listen to the songs when I write these pieces that leaves me little to write about now. Hopefully I can sort something out tonight.

“Interlude” (the title is officially confirmed by a US promo) closes Blur, following hot (well, okay, lukewarm) on the heels of “Essex Dogs”. To me this instrumental that fades in and out in under two minutes always sounded as a sort of coda to “Strange News From Another Star”, but on closer listening the two songs have very little in common, an echo effect on the keyboards excluded. It’s all a bit repetative. Still, it’s nice to know it’s got a title and can now be separated from “Essex Dogs” so it’s got its own place on my iBaby. Empty as she may be.
