OUT OF TIME

BLUR, THINK TANK (2003)

Q (UK) - - Damon At 50 -

Cho­sen by: Gruff Rhys, Su­per Furry An­i­mals

“Out Of Time res­onates for me at the mo­ment. I’m in­ter­ested in how songs’ mean­ings ap­ply dif­fer­ently at dif­fer­ent times and de­velop with time and this song seems very pre­scient. It’s a great bro­ken vo­cal, the whole feel of the song is very raw and sounds more like a Gá­bor Sz­abó track than a con­ven­tional pop song but ob­vi­ously his mad skills as a melod­i­cist shine through. Damon’s gift for melodies has al­ways made my ears pop out when I hear his songs and would prob­a­bly be off the scale on his Top Trumps card.”

“Mad skills”: on­stage with Gruff Rhys, Lon­don, 2012.
