Gorillaz, who released their Plastic Beach LP just a few months ago, could have another disc out by Christmas. Said Damon Albarn, who just completed a North American tour with the group, to NME: "I've been recording a new record on the road, which I'm going to try and put out before Christmas. It's a studio album made in hotel rooms across America.

"I've made it on an iPad," he continued. "I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad — which is ironic, being the sort of technophobe and Luddite that I am. But I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record."

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
