Jamie Hewlett talks about on Damon Albarn in his New Book

Famous for his work as the illustrator half of the band Gorillaz with Blur singer Damon Albarn, Jamie Hewlett has published an autobiography book on his life’s work. The artist’s first monograph contains more than 400 pieces of artwork, spanning the artist's career.

Get inside the mind of Jamie Hewlett - with influences ranging from hip hop to zombie slasher movies, Hewlett emerged in the mid 1990s as co-creator of the zeitgeist-defining Tank Girl comic. With then-roommate, Blur frontman Damon Albarn, he went on to create the unique cartoon band Gorillaz, a virtual pop group of animated characters, which recorded four studio albums and mounted breathtaking live spectacles.

Damon Albarn - New Tour Date for 2018

Heads up! Damon Albarn is going to perform in Tigery, France on March 17th 2018 (Saturday) from 9:00pm onwards. This show marks the first for the Blur frontman in a long time, after his successful Humanz tour last year for his other project Gorillaz.

Albarn will perform with Jupiter & Okwess, a group Jupiter formed with Okwess International. The genre of their sound can be described as an experimental trance. This sound like no other was the delight of Damon Albarn during his album with Congo music and DRC Music in 2011.

Gathering a tight slew of rhythmic patterns, Jupiter creates an electroshock, modern vibe using a traditional trance digest digested in the kinoise fashion. As Jupiter says, "They call me: Jupiter, Living Monument, Rebel General, Hope of Youth, Prophet of Congolese Music ... I accept all these nicknames! "
