Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The yardstick for this Roert Smith tune was (in my head) "Not In Love", that Robert did in 2010 with Crystal Castles. I think this one falls well short of that! I liked the interview on 6 Music as they both sound like eccentric old cool guys. Fair play to Jamie with the visuals, they are consideraly...

Gemma Cairney (BBC radio) interviews Damon about his hobbies

Apologies if this was posted a while back and I missed it. I think it was recorded a couple of years ago. Gemma played Andromeda on the BBC 6 Music breakfast show yesterday then mentioned this - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0004d8n He is on good form and it's all interesting stuff I hadn't hear...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I see Damon's resin owl makes an appearance at 1:37 8-) We first saw this ahead of his 2015 solo tour - I think the plan was for it to sit on his piano, but I'm not sure it ever did. Perhaps it didn't want to go out on tour? Nice vocals by the way - I've always liked Damon's world weary delivery......

Re: Graham's soundtrack for Netflix series 'I Am Not Okay With This'

Hello folks, could I possibly be directed to some highlights of Graham's soundtrack type work? I haven't kept track of it. For example, for Monkey I would say "Heavenly Peach Banquet". For Dr Dee I would say "Apple Carts". Etc. The older I get, the more obvious it becomes that Graham's musicianship ...

Re: Gorillaz tour 2021

Rock Wechter (belgium) announced Gorillaz last night...there line up is pretty much a copy and paste of what should have been this year. I expect most festivals will follow the same line up, I guess it's easier just to keep the same acts Interesting that the tune they have chosen for their announce...

My only comment on this would be - I would appreciate someone sending me a DM to this doc so I could watch it. Thanks!

Re: DARE

I agree it's a bit slow. DJs typically speed it up slightly when playing it out

Re: Damon and the Paddington movies soundtracks

Joe Cornish explains it pretty well in the first ten mins or so here - its Damon, Suzi, Mike Smith and Nelson. https://www.globalplayer.com/podcasts/episodes/7DrZckj/

"London is the place for me" is such a distinctive (and wonderful) song, I knew Damon had to be involved.

Damon and the Paddington movies soundtracks

Was Damon involved in these? It's suggested he was in a band that performed some of the music. But its hard to get full info online. "London is the place for me" was used as the title of 2 Honest Jon compilations. It seems a pretty big coincidence that it was then prominently used in Paddington. Per...

High time this was leaked privately to us on here! Had hoped someone would offer me a copy for my 40th birthday in February!

Re: Blur Primavera Sound, Barcelona, 2013

I was there! They were really good. Probably the best I've ever seen from them. Surprised me therefore that Gabi (primavera promoter) didn't seem to want Damon/Gorillaz back. But I see that's been rectfied for 2021. I didn't know that Gabi didn't want any more Damon projects in his festival, even D...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

its not gonna happend i think. same no parklife or country house 2.0 I meant the next big hit. Will Damon ever write another hit for Gorillaz? Does he even have it in him? Or he just doesn't care anymore? The guy's main ambition seems to be to experiment as much as possible and collaborate with as ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I think the new tune is fine. You can't expect every song to be a cracker. Momentary Bliss does increasingly look like a higher tier of quailty in terms of music and video. Anybody know why the video was so different to all their others?

Re: Gorillaz tour 2021

It feels to me like there's been a big change of approach and rather than the huge gaps between phases, Damon and Jamie are now trying to make Gorillaz a kind of permanent presence. I wonder if the theory is that once they let it drop for a few years, at their age and with the prospect of a crossove...
