The sanctimoniousness had been dialled down as Albarn dashed about with the manic zest of a man with things to prove.Once again, however, the emphasis was on Gorillaz worthy-to-dull third LP, Plastic Beach, one of those records which, believing it has profound things to say about a serious subject (the environmental cost of unchecked consumer culture), skates perilously close to hectoring the listener. He's not actually on stage, but he may well be the reason a good portion of the crowd has turned up.
With a fast-running rhythm, a wriggly melody, and Nagano's crisp delivery, anyone whose hips aren't at least twitching should probably be checked for vital signs. Looking lean and hungry in leather jacket and striped red T-shirt, Albarn was flanked by de facto lieutenants Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash (done up like sailors, in a nod to Plastic Beach’s nautical theme) and a football squad-sized line-up of support players.Glaring down from the video screen, Snoop Dogg arrived early on for a virtual cameo on Welcome To The World of the Plastic Beach.Little Dragon is a Swedish electronic music band from Gothenburg, formed in 1996.
The band consists of Yukimi Nagano (vocals, percussion), Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrik Källgren Wallin (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards).
