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

Royal Morning Blue getting a first play on Lamacq's 6 music show from 5:30pm onwards Going to try and avoid it personally as I am gradually becoming disillusioned with half the album being available before release (I loved that Superstate was a proper 'album' experience to listen to, with only Yoga ...

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

I think it was no doubt a challenging show for less interested fans. My long suffering partner did struggle a bit during the Dr Dee section I must say

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

I was at the Globe - great night. The new songs were captivating and the band were on top form. Some great deep cuts like material from Dr Dee and quite a lot of Merrie Land including Lady Boston One or two slip ups including Three Changes needing to be restarted Amazing venue as well Might have lik...

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

It is good to have both Graham and Damon on the 6 music playlist!

Hard to avoid comparing the two… they’re obviously very different… but I do find myself playing Yoga Town a lot more

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine Tour 2020-2022

Unbelievable show. Best Gorillaz set I've been to. And something about being back with that many people with loud, live music - I won't forget last night in a hurry.

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

'Yoga Town' is .... not what I was expecting from this project. It's a catchy, poppy gem. Love it

Premiered on Lamacq today - you can check it out on BBC Sounds (2 hours in)

Looks like its definitely all go for the O2 show now all restrictions will be lifted in 2 weeks.
Should be a very emotional celebration after 18 months of no gigs.
Has anyone recieved their tickets yet?
Looks like it is the O2's first gig as well

Can't wait! (No tickets received yet)

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

I was very surprised at how long the set was compared to the other acts It was a very very good performance. Obviously Twitter was full of people saying it was depressing etc, and perhaps he could have front loaded it with at least one 'well known' song (End of a Century could have had a great arran...
