Bill, I know you are somewhat a fan of Blur and admire Damon Albarn (and rest of band), as talented musicians and songwriters, a group with quite a unique vision.
I have already put a thread up in The World Outside The Window regarding this next bit, which is about Joan Wasser, A.K.A. Joan As Police Woman and her soon to be released new album. It's an album of other peoples songs, and this is the second time she's done such a venture. This new album looks to have a fantastic and eclectic mix of material on it, and one of the songs is her version of Blur's 'Out of Time', which just happens to be one of my favourite Blur songs.
This made a connection to you, remembering previous ( if somewhat sketchy in my mind now) comments you have made in the past regarding Blur, and got me wondering if you like Joan As Police Woman as a recording artist and have any thoughts regarding her work at all?...I can't remember you having made any comments about her before.
She is one of my favourite artists that's for sure and her own work and compositions are truly unique and wonderful....So, I would be interested to know your thoughts, and forum members too.
Here is the Joan As Police Woman version of 'Out Of Time', a track she has put up on YouTube herself as a sample, to help promote this new album.
..oh heck, I can't resist, here are a couple of old favourites of mine, just for good measure, that I hope you might enjoy:
