Mick Jones & Paul Simonon guest on Gorillaz track!

(Mick Jones & Paul Simonon from the Clash)

Here's the title track from the forthcoming Gorillaz album, titled "Plastic Beach". Mick Jones and Paul Simonon from The Clash lend their 'axes' to this track, which marks the first time in over 30 years they've shared time in the 'lab' together. Their portion of the recording took just one day to record.

The album boasts a stellar guest contributor line up, which also features Lou Reed, Mos Def, Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg, and De La Soul & Gruff Rhys. "Plastic Beach" is a futuristic, 16 song, sonic romp that vividly portrays a polluted world which our future children may one day inherit. But then again, they should be so lucky to have the pop creations on this record.

"Plastic Beach" will be released this upcoming Tuesday, March 9th, courtesy of Virgin Records. You can pre-order the album HERE. Check out title track "Plastic Beach" below.

They Want The Airwaves

Here's the Delta Mirror's cover of "Blind" by TV on The Radio. This 8+ minute reworking offers an electronic makeover worthy of the moniker their forthcoming album is named after, "Machines That Listen". Covering a band like TV on The Radio takes a steady confidence and swagger, that is becoming very clear, the Delta Mirror possesses.

Tonight marks their first free show, of their month long residency at The Echo. They will be supported by another great and upcoming L.A. band, that includes friends of The Delta Mirror, Full Frontal.

If you want the chance to say you witnessed something brilliant, in the early stages, then you MUST go to the Echo tonight. The Delta Mirror has a tentative set time of 11pm.
