As we previously reported he would, Damon appeared at a poetry night at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall last night.

Damon to work on new "chanson française" -inspired musical, he says
Damon has revealed in an interview with French magazine Paris Match that he is currently working on a new musical in the style of "chanson française" (roughly, the tradition of French Popular Music, including artists such as Edith Piaf, whose records Damon played backstage before Dr.Dee's Onefest appearance recently). This is the first mention Damon has made of this project.
You can check out the full interview (in French - we'll try and have a full translation up soon) here.
'The Child Of Love' set to work with Damon and MF Doom according to report from thisisfakeDIY
This isolated report could mean any number of things, from just the fact that 'The Child Of Lov' will also be appearing on JJ Doom (the forthcoming project which is a collaboration between Jneiro Janel and MF Doom, on which Damon and Beth Gibbons have previously contributed to a track) or that he will be on the same track as Damon. Or, potentially, it might not even be on JJ Doom, though that's the only Damon-Doom collab we've heard about on the horizon before now.
