    HOLY COW!😲 This interview happened & I just found out half a year later.🆒 Of course, #AnthonyFantano. is the best interviewer I'd choose. 16:40 I can tell he was just as excited as I was cuz I've never seen him smile like that...or at all.😁 #Fantano was fantastico. However, there were 2 many edits throughout the video.

However, I want to say you are more talented than Faul. I don't care if Faul is the son of Crowley, I just want you to know you're a much better musician and artist. Keep it up

    DAMON!!! I think you should holler at Aminé & get him to rap with 3 Stacks over your vocals layered on top of a DJ Premier beat. Please gift those men the Gorillaz platform to verbally express their outrage over still dealing with this racism shit in the year 2020 & then use some of the cash you make to directly help out some smaller black non profs & organizations that have been making a real difference! Y’all could even call the track “Black Guys Matter” & you should def do an intro that spins off your OG Deltron 3030 State of the Nation to fully express your unwavering solidarity, my love. “It’s the year 2020...” Ohhhh how I hope you’ll read this & seriously consider my dream concept, D!!! Try to lock down André first & tell him the entire world needs to hear him RAP HARD AS HELL about this shit forreals! Once you got 3K signed on Aminé wont be able to say no & you + Aminé are about to be next level brilliant bouncing off of each other, watch! I get heart palpitations every time I think about it!!! Wooooh then with DJ Premier on the beat that makes 3 Aries & a Gemini joining forces to finally create a next level anthem that the BLM' movement needs & deserves by now!!!! Okay, but Hop to it like a bunny, my forever fave music God!!!!

  • Bunny Cat

    The track with Beck made me scream like a 90’s fan girl the first time I heard it, but NBD! Aries is def my most fave of all tho, it’s actually the most perfectly Damon sounding thing I’ve heard in a looooong time. Wooooh, my prolific music dude is always way too good to us!

    Opium would be such a good opening song for the live concert! The build up of music and the crowd 👍it's going to be electric! Like clubbing back in the day 😀 I think it's difficult to compare bands because even if someone has a similar vibe or sound they may be saying something totally different and vice versa, they may be completely different but may have the same message. Music is very personal but yet universal at the same time. I guess it's just a case of how a song hits you inside and what meaning or memories we attach to them! The song machine project is really creative because throwing the constraints out ( which we should all do really because when it comes to creativity, experimentation its how we find new and interesting things!) So I personally think that the song machine project is more integral to the creative process but then again my art teacher used to say that I get too caught up in the process lol However Damon and Jamie and their team really deliver the outcome really perfectly but it doesn't have to be perfect for fs, it takes balls to create and share with the world and that's admirable in itself! Fuck the critics, music is there to be enjoyed, I'm of the opinion if you don't like it don't listen and leave everyone else to enjoy it! Let music and creative expression live! Us humans are just the vehicles for it to express itself through👍
