via teh graun: Damon Albarn gets his Dr Dee out.
The record’s out now (and it’s lush), but the opera will be performed in London this summer by English National Opera. Apparently something cultural that’s going along with the big sports day?
Of course, Blur will be headlining the big shindig at Hyde Park (where have I heard that before?), which will surely be awesome. Oh yes.
Mondays are for exclusives…
First, a premiere from Boston band The Lights Out. About the song by drummer and singer Jesse James: “This song is about an experience I had with a bully growing up. Every day he’d pick on me during the same walk from one class to the another, and one day I just snapped and punched him in the face with all of my little 7th grade might. I saw the welt on his eye the next day and he never picked on me again. That was the day I learned that sometimes there’s only one way to handle a bully. When I came up with the chorus lyrics I was picturing the kid standing over the laid out body of his foe. His stutter, once the cause of his torment, has now become his battle cry.”
