“My favourite de­pends on which band of his it is – Blur, The Good, The Bad & The Queen… If it was Go­ril­laz, my favourite would be Me­lan­choly Hill. I was think­ing

about all these other things but on Rocket Juice And The Moon [a group fea­tur­ing Albarn, Flea of Red Hot Chili Pep­pers and Allen], it’s Poi­son. It was very en­joy­able play­ing that to­gether. Blur had done that song about me, Mu­sic Is My Radar [ 2000]. That was the first time I’d heard of him. I thought, ‘There’s this per­son singing about me, I feel that per­son must know what he’s talk­ing about.’ I liked his melodies, I liked his way of com­pos­ing, so I in­vited him to come and sing on my al­bum, Home Cook­ing, and he did. I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated that. Then af­ter he fin­ished the Go­ril­laz thing he called me up and said, ‘Let’s do some­thing fresh,’ and we did The Good, The Bad & The Queen. We’re on the sec­ond al­bum for The Good, The Bad & The Queen now. We’re go­ing to fin­ish it and it’ll be out soon.”
