Re: Gorillaz - Meanwhile... EP

Well said jonathas - Damon doesn't need to do gorillaz (in the way that I'm sure there was always pressure to come up another blur album in the early days), he makes music as gorillaz because he can. As you say, what a wonderful position for an artist in his 50s to be in!

Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

Did anyone watch the livestream? I would have gone to the Globe gig only I'm out of the UK at the moment. And to be honest, I thought the livestream pricing was a bit too much...

Have an amazing trip! The rock from the cover isn't in Iceland though, but in Devon (Great Mattiscombe Sands). Photographed by Marton Perlaki.

Re: Damon's new (2021) mullet

Given the mullet’s brief run, does anyone think Damon read this thread and got the message? I'd like to think so - but Damon doesn't do fan forums or social media - unlike dear old Graham who used to come on here quite frequently in the old days... I reckon the mullet was a bad haircut in Paris las...

Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

The first Manchester review is in - with news that the mullet has gone!! :) “It’s such a privilege being back on a stage,” says Damon Albarn, half way through tonight’s show. “And extra super lovely for me, being back in Manchester. At the festival.” Indeed, Damon Albarn has become something akin to...

Re: New Damon NME interview (29th June 2021)

"Since then I’ve been working on carnival-themed music with Gorillaz with a lot of people from west London. We’re really going back to the spirit of the first record. It’s really exciting and we’ve been really enjoying it. It’s a nice kind of counter-balance to ‘The Nearer The Fountain…’, really. I’...
