With his Blur mate Alex James content to make cheese, helm a Classic FM radio show and shill his autobiography to whoever will listen, Damon Albarn’s musical CV continues to bloom.

Recent strings to his bow include the “Monkey: Journey To The West” Chinese opera and the fascinating Africa Express project.

At Italia Wave, Albarn was leading The Good, The Bad & The Queen. This London song cycle collaboration with Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong makes for a hugely atmospheric and dramatic musical delight. Expect them to be one of this year’s highlights at the Electric Picnic.
