The communal wonder of Blur's Glastonbury comeback and the desperate alcoholic rage of guitarist Graham Coxon, which first caused their split, are polar opposite extremes from tonight's lovely show. Coxon has spent the day at a memorial for the great British folk guitarist Davy Graham, and is here to play his most relaxed and rounded solo album, The Spinning Top. The grandly named, 13-piece Graham Coxon Power Acoustic Ensemble gathered to do so include another folk legend, Martin Carthy, and Anglo-psychedelic master Robyn Hitchcock. Coxon is the only one sitting, as if Method-acting himself into stool-bound folk mode. He is still a bashful, unlikely frontman. But he is a fine, happy band-leader.

Obviously he's an amazing frontman and is known for being pretty nuts but I think he's a really underrated writer, too. Some of the melodies on the earlier Black Sabbath records are incredible. I'd like him or R. Kelly to front this band.

On previous solo outings, Graham Coxon's penchant for lo-fi American indie-rock and a rather solipsistic, self-pitying worldview has somewhat hobbled his ability to develop significantly as an artist.

Despite the chatter, don't bet your house (even if it is one you have bought outright with a parliamentary second home allowance) on Michael Martin, the hitlisted House of Commons Speaker, resigning before this year's summer recess.

You may have thought the seven-inch single was a relic of a bygone age, a heavy slice of black plastic to give voice to the cute Dansette record player or the pub jukebox you salvaged from a vintage furniture shop.
