"In September, when the sun sets soon now"...




Damon Albarn - 'You and Me' (ft. Brian Eno)




Today's mood...
September's my month.
Westbourne Grove is my London hood.
Under the West way...
Love the softness of the tune and the vocals.




"You And Me" 

(Lyrics)


I met Moko Jumbi
He walks on stilts through All Saints Road
Looking over the brew now, for a possession loss
People sound, no days off
In September, when the sun sets soon now


In you, it radiates on you
Seven high they're rising
Over on the other side
Of September when the sun sets soon now

Jab jab, digging out a hole in Westbourne Grove
Tin foil and a lighter, the ship across
Five days on, two days off, in September
When the sun sets soon now


In you, it radiates on you
Seven high they're rising
Over on the other side
Of September when the sun sets soon now

In you, it radiates on you
Seven high they're rising
Over on the other side
Of September when the sun sets soon now


You can blame me
Blame me
Blame me
Blame me
When the twilight comes
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again

You can blame me
Blame me
Blame me
Blame me
When the twilight comes
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again

Some days I look at the morning trying to work out how I got here
Cause the distance between us is the glamour’s cost
Late night on the shop floor what language was i speaking
Not sure I remember the thrill and fall
Always in me
Let it go
You can blame me
Blame me
Blame me
Blame me
When the twilight comes
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again

You can blame me
Blame me
Blame me
Blame me
When the twilight comes
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again

Damon Albarn on Blur and drug addiction: ‘Heroin made me incredibly productive’



Speaking openly about his past drug addiction in a rare interview moment, he actually described the period in his life as "incredibly productive", and detailed how he would regulate his heroin intake to "five days on and two days off" to maximise on creativity.

Albarn, who has long since been clean of drugs, began his relationship with heroin "at the height of Britpop" after he came home from tour one evening and casually found it in his front room.

"I just thought, 'Why not?' I never imagined it would become a problem."
He then recites a line from the track "You And Me" to the reporter, which is a song on his forthcoming solo album, Everyday Robots.

"Tin foil and a lighter, the ship across," he sung. "Five days on, two days off."
"I'm happy I found that poetry," Albarn went on to say. "I can move forward now without all the nudge nudge, wink wink innuendo I've had in the background for years."

Albarn has expressed a similar sentiment about his drug use in the past. However, despite the impact heroin had on his creative career, he is also extremely vocal about the dangers of addiction.


"It's a cruel, cruel thing," he said. "[Heroin] does turn you into a very isolated person and ultimately anything that you are truly dependent on is not good."
