Blur! Sounds like the Brit-pop era all over again! I wonder if for the next Gorillaz Damon will go back to the first album style too. But I don't think he's as nostalgic for the old Gorillaz style as he is about Brit-pop.
The Puritan is funny song. Like it.

and Under the westway is just beautiful.
