The good, the bad, and the queen

I went to a concert Sunday night at the Nuits de Fourviere, of the Good, the Bad, and the Queen, a band made up of someone from the Clash, someone from Blur, someone from the Verve, and someone else-- I forget. A supergroup, if you will. They play atmospheric, intense music and seemed a little posey and pretentious, in a good way. The opener was a band called the Serpent, which were completely derivative, yet catchy. Every song they played sounded like a different band: U2, Led Zeppelin. We said to each other, "This CAN'T be Stairway to Heaven! It CAN'T BE!" And it wasn't, although it sounded just like it.

I have the G, the B, and the Q cd and love it. It's an intriguing mix of showhall and dub beats. Of course, I've long thought Damon Albarn is a genius, so perhaps my opinion is overly biased.
