I’m usually on RNZ once a month to have a chat about some new albums. But now and then I present features on the show too. Most recently I got to talk about George Harrison’s music for almost a whole hour!
And then the team behind the summer programming asked me along to chat about Damon Albarn.
I got to reference the time I interviewed him. And we played some tunes. We didn’t get through all of them so I’ve included the planned playlist at the bottom there – and they also didn’t get one of the songs right at all. But oh well. Technical issues can happen.
Albarn’s a gem, possibly a musical genius. And yes I know that terms gets bandied about and no longer has the right meaning. But I’m a fan of most of his work and I’m impressed with the range he has offered across a handful of very good bands and side-projects across the last quarter century or so.
So click here to hear my wee chat about Damon Albarn from earlier this week if you missed it first time around.
