|Title||:||Gorillaz - 19-2000 (Soulchild Remix) [by Damien Mendis]|
|Description||:|| I got a call from Miles Leonard (President of Parlophone EMI Virgin) to talk about a project of Blur's Damon Albarn. It was called Gorillaz. Not a band as such, more of a collective of collaborators. They had inadvertently caught some heat, by way of a 2-Step Garage Remix of "Clint Eastwood". BBC Radio 1 weren't giving the original a lot of spins and decided (to keep in with its core audience) to do a radio edit of this popular dance mix. Since this version wasn't representative of what Gorillaz were about, EMI & Albarn initially weren't keen but relented to public demand. I was given a copy of all their demo's and unfinished/finished tracks for what was to be their debut album. The brief was "pick one that you can produce, remix or whatever into a hit single". I gave them all a listen and, nothing immediately screamed 'potential hit'. Regardless, I sent over a proposed budget for one song of their choosing. Things went quiet for a few weeks or so. I then got a call a few weeks later saying "Jamie Howlett has already started working on a video for the song "19-2000" - we'd really love it if you took that song and made into a hit". To my ears, it was a ropey durgy old demo lacking a great melody, let alone a big hook. After striking a deal with Miles, I agreed to do it. The fee (including production recording/mixing costs) wasn't what I wanted but he said "I promise I will make it up to you on another record". Well, 15 years later... He never did keep his promise! As far as creativity was concerned, his exact words were "you have carte blanche to do whatever you want". What happened next was nightmare-ish 10 days.... [MORE TO FOLLOW] |
