Gorillaz in tune with the US
Damon Albarn thinks America is "in tune" with Gorillaz.
The singer - who is behind the cartoon group with artist Jamie Hewlett - said he is overwhelmed by the success of their recent US dates, and thinks it is because the country is in the right place to embrace their eclecticism, particularly of their live incarnation.
He said: "It just seems to be in tune with where America is at the moment. America is in a period of transition and sort of the idea of a very mixed crowd, an eclectic crowd is something they are embracing at the moment.
"So the fact that we have such a mad generational sort of mixture and Arab-American musicians, it's good and the crowds are just so mixed it's amazing."
Damon also said he's pleased to have finally made it in America, one of the few places in the world where his other band, Blur, never achieved mainstream success.
He added to website fasterlouder.com.au: "I can't believe it really, and it's a heartfelt sort of wonder cause I didn't really put a lot of time into America with Blur, and although we had a very cool, underground following it was really difficult stepping off the plane from having played to really, you know, ecstatic, empathic audiences in Europe and in the UK and also in Australia and New Zealand and then going to America always felt like it was a bit of a step down and a bit like hard work, and no-one ever got it and it was too English."Posted on 2 Dec 2010 16:15 to category : Music News
