Birth of a Supergroup

Jools Holland does not use the word supergroup often. And when he does, one should be excited...

The Clash
Blur
The Verve
Africa 70

Take 1 musician from each band, and put under the musical direction of the legendary producer DJ Danger Mouse (name behind Grey Album, Gnarles Barkley). The resulting band is truely a superband. These mucians are:

Damon Albarn of Blur
The Clash bassist Paul Simmon
The Verve guitarist Simon Tong
Afrobeat pioneer Tony Allen (he's a great drummer)

I haven't gotten a hold of the album yet, until that Youtube is my only source:



and also the band website:

EDIT: I'm lucky. They're coming to Berlin on 8th of Febuary.
