ALBARN: 'SO MUCH A COCK HE MAY NEED TO BE GIVEN SOMEWHERE TO ROOST', SAY EXPERTS: Oh, Damon, how did it come to be so? You've always had an interest in Iraqi music and so your desire to record in Baghdad isn't just some lame stunt-jumping? Watching Blur these days must be what it was like getting signed in as a guest at the Drone's club. Alex has always been a bit Bertie Wooster; with his madcap but wellmeaning embrace of any new whim that comes by, Damon is surely the Gussie Finke-Nottle of our times. [If you need further evidence, Dave is clearly Jeeves - watching quietly in the background with a detached raised eyebrow.] The brutalised people of Iraq look to the new occupiers to offer hope and a better future, and we're going to send them Damon from Blur. Right now, people in Pyongyang are muttering "If we can survive, we might get to work with Bernard Butler..."
