For those of you that don't know, The Good, the Bad and the Queen are the latest project for the team of Damon Albarn and Danger Mouse. That's not the name of the band - they do not seem to have a name. Confusing hey?
And here's 3 quick reasons why I think they're great.
1) They have a mix in styles unlike anything I've heard before. I can best describe this as a mix of raggae, African and vaudeville. Yeah, get your head round that.
2) It's from the same team that brought us Gorillaz. And let's be fair, they're cool.
3) They have Paul Simonon playing bass, who is the greatest bass player in the world. Not because of musical talent but because a) he looked cooler than anyone
else playing a bass and b) he
was on the cover of London Calling.
