Blur's Graham Coxon to write songs for new Britpop-based film 'The Wanderers'
Blur guitarist Graham Coxon has signed up to write songs for the soundtrack for a new film titled The Wanderers.
According to The Sun today (July 11), the film is a "non-conventional Britpop teen musical" and follows the fortunes of a young band from Essex, where Blur are originally from.
The film, which is set in 1996, will also feature songs written by Ash frontman Tim Wheeler, whose band also rose to the fore around that time.
Wheeler is currently putting together the score for Spike Island, the new film based on The Stone Roses' gig in Merseyside 1989. That is due for release later this year.
Blur will play a huge show next month in London's Hyde Park to mark the end of this summer's Olympics, topping a bill that also includes New Order, The Specials and Bombay Bicycle Club.
