Dan Tallis Love Travels At Illegal Speeds, Graham Coxon's sixth solo album, is a more relaxed, varied and accessible affair compared to the full-on rock mode of 's Happiness In Magazines. There are still plenty of Coxon's trademark scratchy guitar sounds. Throughout Blur's golden period, Coxon kept sending out subtle signals that the truly perceptive observer could have interpreted as implying a slight discomfort with celebrity, such as punching his record label boss, becoming an alcoholic and threatening to commit suicide at the party celebrating Country House's accession to number one.
Nor did the three solo albums he had recorded while with Blur do much to suggest a continued high profile was guaranteed. Scrappy and lo-fi, they seemed, despite Coxon's frequent protestations to the contrary, to exist primarily in order for him to moan about the other members of Blur.
However, his next album, Happiness in Magazines , defied expectations by being both listenable and apparently unconcerned with the ghastliness of Damon Albarn. It made the top 20 and spawned three charming hit singles: not enough to stop people asking when he was going to rejoin Blur - you rather suspect Coxon is still going to be asked if he's thinking of rejoining Blur on his deathbed - but more than most people would have expected.
In its own funny little way, the follow-up to Happiness shares a certain ambitiousness with the work of Coxon's former collaborator. Admittedly, there are no guest musicians from Africa, Dennis Hopper is noticeable by his absence and the chances of Madonna asking to collaborate on a multi-media extravaganza for the MTV Europe awards seem slim, but it does attempt to recast public perceptions of Coxon in a most improbable way.
His specs, fourth-form haircut and wounded adolescent vocal style have never really suggested a whirlwind of bedhopping lubricity. And yet, here he is, his sleeve booklet decorated with drawings of nude women, variously depicting himself glistening with lustful sweat, lurking in a bathroom to tickle a lady's fancy behind her partner's back, and - if you interpret the second verse of Gimme Some Love in a certain light - on the receiving end of some vigorous manual relief.
