Damon Albarn says no dice on Blur and Gorillaz, picks up toys and walks away.

Well, Well, Well. This is a First. Post. It should be only fitting, I suppose, that a website devoted to the sound, and for whom this is their first post, should have something about Damon Albarn breaking up both Blur and Gorillaz. Thanks for ruining my day damon. Thanks a lot dude. Want to know why? Lets hear a quote from the man himself.

“I find it very easy to record with Graham,” Albarn said. “He’s a daily musician. With the other two, it’s harder for them to reconnect … It’s fine when we play live: it’s really magical still. But actually recording new stuff, and swapping musical influences … it’s quite difficult.”

You’ve known these dudes for the better part of 20 years. Longer than most people can hold relationships with people not their family. All of a sudden you’re like dude, you don’t “get” Neutral Milk Hotel and you don’t even own a Sea and Cake record so therefore I cannot speak to you ever again.

I know you stay up late wondering what Alex James is doing, I know I do, so here’s what he’s been up to: James splits his time between the production of cheese on his Cotswolds farm. Ooooook? Sure, I mean, you’ve made your million, but when asked the question of what do you want to with your life you answered “making cheese”.  Right, I saw that one coming.
