The Good, The Bad And The Queen

In an e-mail to Blur and Gorillaz newsletter subscribers, the jaw-dropping supergroup of Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen, and Simon Tong have announced their first gig: 10/26 at the Roundhouse in London, as part of the BBC Electric Proms season.

Damon explains: “The Good The Bad and The Queen, it’s … it’s a story, it’s not a band. I’m very very proud of this record and I think it’s worth while putting it out. It’s a very English record, it’s the first time I’ve really written about home, since sort of Parklife. I’ve always wanted to play the Roundhouse. You know, I love the idea that you have to be something that hasn’t been heard before.

The band story’s album, produced by Danger Mouse, is expected next year. Watch a teaser (and it really does tease) here.
