Red Hot Chili Blur Supergroup Gearing Up For Shows and Album Release
"We met on a plane in 2008," bassist/trumpeter Flea told Mojo magazine. "The three of us were going to Lagos as part of Damon's Africa Express Collective. I'm a huge Fela Kuti fan and Tony [Allen] is one of my favourite drummers, so to get to talk and play with him was phenomenal. The way I approach rhythm and groove is very similar to the way he does, and I feel with him a special something that is hard to put into words but it's a beautiful thing."
"We were going to meet someday," added Allen. "It feels like I've been playing with Flea for many years."
Albarn agreed that, "Everything just fell into place. It felt special being in a room together."
Rocketjuice and the Moon's self-titled debut album is due for release in March and has been recorded in London with overdubs in Paris, Berlin and Chicago. What on earth will it sound like? "It is all funk," Allen told Mojo. more on this story
