News roundup: William Orbit says Damon is a 'shit' to Blur / Dr.Dee trailer / GSS in Japan / reviews

William Orbit twitter comments
We were waiting to see if this story would develop, but a few days ago (Wednesday), in response to a fan's question about Blur news, William Orbit replied: "Blur could have been good. But Damon, brilliant and talented tho he is, is kinda a shit to the rest of Blur". Check out a screen grab of the exchange (thanks to fan damon4president) here, and the tweet is still on Twitter here. William Orbit is a high profile producer who produced Blur's 1999 album '13', and as previously reported on G-U, has been doing some (apparently limited, i.e. not more than a few tracks at most, possibly only two) production work on some Blur tracks recently. The information about him producing some tracks also came out via him tweeting about it. All 4 members of Blur have commented in various ways about the possibility of Blur recording and releasing new material and an album, Damon has at most been non-committal on the subject, whereas there was one interview where Graham Coxon said Blur would 'definitely' release an album. We'll bring you more on this story as we get it.
