Re: Damon rumoured to be working on new Adele album

Plastic Beach sold well in Britian (platinum disc) but it kinda dropped like a stone in America. The album didn't even go gold there (the first two albums sold about 2 million). Albarn working with Adele sounds like a good idea. If they could do a big orchestral ballad along the lines of To The End ...

Re: Damon on Band Aid 30:

She's a bell shiner who hasn't released anything anyone cares about for 24 years and even that was shit. And she didn't even write that, Prince did.

Re: Mercury Prize 2014: Damon Albarn shortlisted for solo de

I was at the gig, it was brilliant. Third time I'd seen the Specials and that was probably the best of the bunch. Graham was fantastic.

Re: Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots tour thread

I was at the Sunday gig. first time I'd ever been to the Albert Hall. Loved the venue, really classy! There was one moment of pure comedy when during a song, Damon was trying to climb down from the stage so he could walk through the crowd but the bouncer wouldn't let him through.
