Good Gossip: Damon Albarn's new band

Fans of Britpop genius and Gorillaz/Blur mastermind, Damon Albarn, will be as intrigued as I am to learn that he's forming a new band. (I hate the word "supergroup," don't you?)

Called The Good, The Bad & The Queen, they'll have their first live show at the BBC's Electric Proms festival on 10/26. No hints as to when they'll head stateside, but we can look forward to them launching their first album next year.

Get a load of who's in the band:
--Clash bassist Paul Simonon
--Former Verve guitarist Simon Tong
--Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen
--Danger Mouse, of Gnarls Barkley, Grey Album, and Gorillaz fame
