After a quick count revealed that our once some time illustrator Dan Wilson had contributed about 90% of the artwork for a new zine, it's time to humbly pay our dues.
Check out his often wonderful and sometimes weird drawings here......
With a band featuring none other than (tres youthful looking) former Clash bassist Paul Simonen who is also Albarn's cohort in The Good, The Bad & The Queen as well as Bobby Womack and everyone's favourite right-on rap star/interplanetary explorer Mos Def.
They performed the 80's soul tinged single Stylo, taken from this year's Plastic Beach LP.
They'll perform further on the full programme this coming Saturday on BBC 2.

Fledgling followers of this blog might not remember a zine we put out around this time last year entitled 'Against All Odds'. For those not in the know, it was a perfectly fitting name for what turned out to be a Herculean production effort of 10 hr stints at the keyboard, illustration choice infighting and on a personal level awaking at 5am under the Tally Ho office desk with a reassuring pat that it was 'done'.
Our attendance at this years Coachella is an equally triumphant story of a battle against cheap liqour , American niceties and nature itself. So hold tight over the next few days as I shake the post LA blues and try to write up the festival.
As a little taster you can expect reviews of Jay Z, Yeasyayer, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soundsytem, Beachouse, The XX, Hot Chip, Yo La Tengo, Spoon and PAVEMENT.
