I genuinely hate Paul McCartney, the guy is an absolute c**t
really frustrating, when one tries to come up with some arguments, you know, discuss the topic - then comes c...t like you to ruin it with meaningles, rude "post". Sad.

Re: Damon Albarn hints at future Gorillaz collab with Paul McCartney

It's a bit like football, two lumps of uber talent is barely a guarantee of success. Even more so when they're from distinctly different places, times, and are chucked together later on. 1) Damon and Paul are very similar musicians in terms of work ethics. They both view making music as a day job, ...

Re: Damon Albarn hints at future Gorillaz collab with Paul McCartney

Great news! Damon and Paul already met on the stage, during one Africa Express event in 2012, playing songs from McCartney II, the album for which, amongs many other things, Macca realy deserves Gorillaz collab and recognition. Also, Gorillaz have made several Beatles hints throughout their career,m...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I have been listening all day. It's really great, and definitely the best thing Damon has produced since Plastic Beach. Such detail and melody on every song. (Puts The Magic Whip and some of its lesser and disappointing throwback moments - e.g. lonesome street - in context in terms of Damon's engag...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Ok, no hard feelings :-) Lets say "anything" Albarn" is not a big deal for Cure fans - seemingly. As for St. Vincent, I don´t know much about her, but she did an album with David Byrne a few years ago. Anyway, it´s always funny for me to see St. Vincent (= Annie Clark), because long time ago, in the...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

They should - and maybe will - release "Valley of Pagans" as next proper episode, as official audio of the song is getting lot of views/listens on platmorms. This abum has been well promoted via Elton John social media. The reaction of Cure fans, as I saw some comments on youtube or under facebook ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Ah, sadly no flipping chance of #1! As I (kind of) predicted, Bruce Springsteen is miles ahead. He's on 37,000 and Gorillaz are at #2 with 9,000. Nothing but Thieves (I've never heard of them either!) are close behind and may overtake, especially if they've got a single out that's picking up airpla...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It works very well for me as an album. The Valley of Pagans is instantly catchy, there´s no slowing down to my ears. Aries is much more than just torelable, It´s beautiful song, that line "Feels like I´m falling again" is pure Damon at his best. Even the songs I wasn´t so excited about, when they ca...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Now I agree much more. I rated TMW around 7.5/10. Not a HUGE fan, but I still like it a lot, not least because of some reasons you just highlighted.

Re: New Graham project: Mexican Institute Of Sound - My America Is Not Your America (Feat. Graham Coxon)

this is his collaboration with Mexican Institute of Sound, a project created by mexican DJ Camilo Lara. It was recorded last year before Graham´s two shows in Mexico City. One song is already out for some time, it features Graham on guitar. What is yet to be known is whether Graham is featured on ev...
