Has anyone got a ticket for Song Machine Live? The timings aren't totally convenient for me, so not sure if I will bother. I asusme it will appear somewhere else pretty soon after. Gorillaz have "form" for that.

Yup - looking forward to Sunday evening's show :)

I've been trying to work out from the various trailers where 'the basement of Kong Studios' actually is. My guess is Printworks. I managed to wangle my way in there for the Humanz launch. If it weren't for this bloody pandemic I'd be trying to do the same :)

Doubt it very much mate - the bubble is 50 to 150 people!
I think Damon has already said it's going to be somewhere else...

Yeah I know nothing about this event, not really paid any attention to it. There's people attending? I thought it was just online?

sadly no - Damon's 50-150 strong support bubble consists of musicians and crew!!

Setlist for Song Machine Live From Kong - Performance 1:

Strange Timez
The Valley Of The Pagans
The Lost Chord (with Leee John)
Pac-Man
MLS
The Pink Phantom
Opium
Aries (with Peter Hook & Georgia)
Dead Butterflies (with Kano)
Désolé
Momentary Bliss (with slowthai & Laurie of Slaves)
- - -
Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head (with Matt Berry)
Last Living Souls
Dracula
Don't Get Lost In Heaven
Demon Days
Clint Eastwood (Ed Case Refix) (with Sweetie Irie)

Highlights for me were Strange Timez (the ending!), Opium and Momentary Bliss.
Some songs, like The Valley and The Pink Phantom, still need some work to shine live.

How was Matt Berry? That sounds the most interesting collab. I wonder if that means a future song with him or if he's playing a role in the Netflix film.

He's got a great voice, but the arrangement of the song was a bit awkward. The lyrics didn't have a good flow like in the studio version.

Just finished watching tonight’s performance, great show, very ambitious, but they pulled it off. If I was to pick one high I would say Momentary Bliss or maybe Aries, although I thought valley of the Pagans was pretty cool with hologram Beck and loved the transmission from the Pink Phantom/Opium, actually just changed my mind Opium was the high for me. 🙂
