The Good, The Bad & The Queen - Merrie Land **** Earlier this year, Damon Albarn took to the stage at the Brit Awards to accept the British Group prize for another of his bands, Gorillaz. He has since admitted that he was “refreshed”. “I’ve got one thing to say and it’s about this country,” he slurred. “It’s a lovely place and it’s part of a beautiful world. Don’t let it become isolated.” Consider the revival after 12 years of The Good, The Bad & The Queen — his collaboration with Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, Clash bassist Paul Simonon and The Verve’s Simon Tong — to be a far more articulate extension of that speech. It’s his Brexit album, in a nutshell. Albarn has been putting an idea of Britishness to music since Blur’s second album, Modern Life is Rubbish, arrived as a reaction to American grunge in 1993.

A FUNERAL parlour has taken Simon Cowell's old Rolls-Royce and transformed it into a hearse. And it seems people are queuing to book in an X-Factor send-off. The high-spec silver Phantom VII, once owned by the multi-millionaire Britain's Got Talent judge, has been converted into a custom-built hearse by A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service. The unusual transformation was recently carried out by specialist coach builders in Italy and included ripping out the extravagant champagne cooler in the back seat. Its original interior also featured TV screens, mood lighting, fully reclining electric rear seats and sheepskins rugs.
