Does he still wear cool hats?
Still play great bass?
Is he currently in Damon Albarn's newest creation, The Good The Bad, & The Queen?
Is it the same as the Clash, Blur, or the Verve, as all the members were part of those groups?
Yes and No.
Hooks like Blur's Parklife, and vibes like the Clash's Sandinista. It seems like a chaser, or a chilled out follow-up, to either one of those albums. Albarn, Simonon, Tong, and Allen make good around each other. Nice to find Simonon again.
