appears on new Terry Hall/Mushtaq album
Damon Albarn appears on the new
Terry Hall/Mushtaq album The Hour Of Two
Lights (Honest Jon's - HJRCD5). His vocals
and melodica are on the track "Ten
Eleven". Here are extracts from the press
release concerning Damon's involvement:
The Hour Of Two
Lights has followed a long and winding
journey since Damon Albarn first suggested it was
time for Hall to make another solo album and that
his own new label, Honest Jon's was the ideal
outlet for it. The two were old friends, the Blur
singer appeared on Hall's last album, 1997's
Laugh and Hall returned the
compliment on Albarn's Gorillaz project.
On Ten Eleven,
Hall's voice is joined by Romany Rad, a group of
Polish gypsy refugees living in the East End, the
blind Algerian rapper Mohammed and Albarn.
"Well we couldn't really keep Damon and his
melodica off, could we?", jokes Hall.
"It's his label."
The album was recorded at 13 Studios
and was released on July 21.
