The Good, the Bad and the Queen

November 5th, 2006 · No Comments

This just in:

What do you get when you put Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), Paul Simonon (The Clash), Simon Tong (The Verve), and Tony Allen (Fela Kuti) together in a room, and then throw producer Danger Mouse in for good measure?

Well, judging from “History Song”, it kinda sounds like Gorillaz minus the hip-hop influence. On the lead-off track from supergroup The Good, the Bad and the Queen’s forthcoming self-titled album (due out early January), lo-fi acoustic guitar bumps up against eerie piano and scratchy sound effects, creating a mysterious mood perfect for soundtracking scenes of cartoon intrigue.

The band recently performed their debut in London as part of the Electric Proms festival. You can stream “History Song” here.
