The making of Gorillaz' Song Machine - comments



Peter Hook
" When Damon asked me to play on "Aries", I was incredibly nervous about it. He asked me to do it with him, which made me even more nervous! [Laughs.] But no, he was absolutely wonderful. He was great to be with. He was easy. The setup he's got there is amazing. The whole thing was not difficult, and came together really, really quickly in the odd way that some songs do and some songs don't. Literally I was out of the session in two hours. It was really easy to do."

Damon Albarn
" We've got around six episodes in the bag."

Saiph Graves of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
" A lot of stuff is in the works right now. They [Damon Albarn and co.] space out how they work on records... It will be a while before the [Gorillaz] record comes out. But yeah, Hypnotic will be on there."

" Much more to come from Gorillaz."

Jamie Hewlett
" The TV series has morphed into something else, something much bigger. It's going to take a while but it's happening."

Damon Albarn
" I just love the adventure of music every day. I mean this week - a week when I haven't done anything else - I've done a tune with Massive Attack, I've done a tune with Moonchild, I've done a tune with Joan As Police Woman. That's the way it goes. When I open the shop, anyone can come in - as long as they want to embrace the fundamentals of making music, which are an open spirit and a good ear."

Damon Albarn in July 2019 (source: Huck).


Joe Spurgeon of The Horrors
" When Gorillaz call you, you come. Joe playing Whitechapel bells at Damon Albarn's Studio 13."

Damon Albarn
" I have another one [Gorillaz album] as well, but I know I'm not gonna be allowed to even think about recording or putting it out this year. [...] It's there. If I get the time, or if anyone wants it, it's there."

Damon Albarn on 16th August 2018 (source: FM4).
