The Good, the Bad & the Queen

Damon Albarn

The Good, the Bad & the Queen is the album by an unnamed British alternative rock supergroup, made up of Damon Albarn, The Clash bassist Paul Simonon, Simon Tong of The Verve, and Tony Allen, the drummer and musical director of Fela Kuti’s band Africa 70. The album released in 2007.

Albarn has stated in several interviews that the band itself is unnamed, and that ‘The Good, The Bad & The Queen’ is simply the name of the album only. It is stated that the record is, in a sense, a concept album, as its songs are all themed around modern life in London. As of 2011, the band has not released any new material, though Simon Tong and Paul Simonon both made appearances on Damon Albarn’s next project, the third Gorillaz album ‘Plastic Beach.’
