Re: Gorillaz tour 2021

it surprises me. I thought Gorillaz had been done for a while. It made more sense to present his new project about Iceland. But well, I suppose they will play the latest Gorillaz songs. I had already enough of Gorillaz ... Gorillaz cannot be done because as a project it has no boundaries. That's wh...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I reckon they've deliberately gone for a weaker one after Aries, because Aries is getting traction and still peaking. It's currently A List on 6 music for example. A weaker one lets Aries continue its momentum for another week or two

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I was thinking the other day that in theory Gorillaz should be the ultimate lockdown band being virtual. If they brought back some of the 2001-2005 style 3D character TV performances with a "live" recording dubbed over

Re: RIP Tony Allen

Deeply saddened by the news. Feel so lucky to have not only seen him perform many times but to have briefly met him as well. Lovely man and the master of his craft. Such a shame especially considering he was still at the top of his game, with performances and releases planned.

Re: Best album closer

Incredible selection of songs. I love Mirrorball, definitely under-rated

Has to be TIAL though, in the context of the album

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The new song Aries leaked... (obviously not sharing a link but it's not too difficult to find in the usual places) Spoiler alert - it is really really good and I can't think of many Gorillaz songs to compare it to. Maybe a cross between Pyongyang and Tranz. It's VERY New Order. Love it Really surpri...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

This is absolutely great

One of the best songs he has done for years

Would be great if we get an “end of season” live show - could that be too much to hope for

Re: New track from Gorillaz to premiere on BBC Radio 1 this Thursday

Confirmed on Gorillaz YouTube... Gorillaz - Momentary Bliss ft. Slowthai and Slaves premieres tomorrow at 7:30pm It is described as “Episode 1”. I suspect Song Machine is an “album” which will just see songs get released / added as and when they are ready. I remember an interview with Damon on Beats...

Re: The Great Escape

The album just needed minor surgery

Get rid of Topman and Ernold Same, add Tame and Ultranol and you have a great album

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Really enjoyed last night's show too. Thought they were pretty crap for the first 20 mins or so, when they were just a bit too downbeat, sombre and dark for a disinterested seeming audience, but as usual Damon grabbed the show by the scruff of the neck and - through sheer force of will - dragged ev...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Great gig last night, they had the Choir there too which I didn't expect at all (choir came back on for Poison Tree, Herculean and Nature Springs, and closed the gig itself) Band on absolutely top form.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, London, 20 Jun 2015

I was there with my wife and daughter 6 at the time. My daughter was on my shoulders the entire gig waving about a homemade Milky Carton (created by me) with Milky on one side and his female version on the other, bloody good effort it was, looking very close to the real one and had a number of othe...
