Damon Albarn: A life in notes

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 10:35 am on 14 January 2019

Now it's time to talk music and today we're going to be chatting about the life and work of one of Emile's favourite musicians, Damon Albarn. 

He's one of the biggest musical forces over the past 30 years. From making Britishness cool with Blur in the mid-90s to challenging the very idea of what a band is with Gorrillaz over the past 20 years.
