As we previously reported, Damon Albarn’s other-other-other side project the Good, the Bad and the Queen reunited last night in London to play their first show in three years. In case you don’t know, the group is made up of Albern, the Clash’s Paul Simonon, the Verve’s Simon Tong, and Fela Kuti-associate Tony Allen. And while we’ve only heard hints of a follow up to their eponymous debut, we’re clearly excited about the band wanting to play together again.
Oh wait, Albarn said it’s a “one-off gig.” Sigh. At least someone caught some decent footage of their show, during which the Good, the Bad and the Queen played their own material while also covering Albarn’s other gig, Gorillaz. Watch the performance footage below. [CoS]
