Hey everyone. I saw this on www.mtv.co.uk/mtv2...

"Albarn puts solo project on hold as he launches new collaboration…
Two hugely successful bands and a solo career would be enough to satisfy most musicians – but not Damon Albarn.

The Blur and Gorillaz star has now formed a third band, The Good The Bad And The Queen, and has even put a Danger Mouse-produced solo project on hold to pursue it. The group consists of our Damon, The Clash’s bass player Paul Simonon, Verve guitarist Simon Tong and Tony Allen on drums.

Apparently the foursome are working on a concept album about London which is currently penned for a January 2007 release, and their live debut is planned to coincide with the BBC’s Electric Proms season at The Roadhouse in Camden this October."

Paul Simonon of the Clash WITH Damon Albarn? Is this a joke? Paul and Damon in a new band? Really? :shock:

Can anybody say if they ever heard about that... :?: :roll:

sounds like an uber-band -

Jan 2007 - could it clash with Arctic Album II?

OMG, I hate Blur and Gorillaz, not beacuse of Damon, but because of the sound. Hopefully I´ll be surprised by this project, cos it sounds pretty promising.

double post!

the album of the Good, the Bad and the Queen is out tomorrow 22/01/07 if I' m right. I bought their single Herculean and it was so FUCKING AWESOME that i' m gonna buy the album with my eyes closed.

Herculean is amazing. You know, it' s the kind of song you wanna hear while you're watching the sunrise... or alone in a corridor... i understand myself, that' s enough :milton:

but anyway, they' re really damn good. Thanks so much Damon for getting Paul Simonon out of the closet.

I thought they were a bit simple.
They just released their first single last week.
Unimpressed and I LOVE Blur+Gorillaz.
