Blur The Musical? The idea might not seem so far-fetched due to the news reported today by NME that Damon Albarn is considering making the band's 1995 album The Great Escape into a musical.

"'The Great Escape' I've always thought that could be a great musical," he told BANG Showbiz. "We wrote that record as we were playing out the Britpop explosion with 'Parklife'. We were in the studio and every day I would go in and write about something that had happened in the papers. So it's a snapshot in time."
