Morning Becomes Eclectic hosts the band during a stop in L.A.
 

Oh how I love pulling up Morning Becomes Eclectic on kcrw.com and seeing there’s a fave band for the scheduled session that day! Such was the case when The Gorillaz performed August 18th and it was nice to experience the fresh sounds of live performance. Layers of certain songs were more prominent, the sound of an engine for example, so it all felt new again. It was also nice to hear Damon Albarn be more forthcoming during the interview compared to the “Colbert Show” where he was clearly not in on the ruse that Stephen Colbert is acting out a persona, or maybe Albarn was just hungover.

Here’s the link in the KCRW archives to experience it yourself!
