Latitude 2009

Countdown to Latitude - The Good, The Bad And The Queen

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE QUEEN

Not strictly the name of a band – they claim not to have one – but rather title of the debut LP by a supergroup of sorts, featuring Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, former Verve guitarist Simon Tong and Afro-beat drummer, Tony Allen.

The Good, The Bad And The Queen play Saturday July 14.
Latitude takes place July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
