Drug addiction is like being in love with the devil. It's a long, drawn-out romance that constantly betrays you, but which you always forgive because of its warm grasp and blanketing comfort. It's basically a deep, soulful yearning for something that will kill you.
You’ve just woken up and it’s 10am on a Sunday. Some birds are chirping earnestly outside your bedroom window and your head feels heavy from the night before. You didn’t get much sleep but at least you got some. “How you feeling?” you message a mate. “Still out”, they reply.
I often have to check my luggage for drugs. Usually a nice airport security staff member will do this for me, but I like to do it myself first. When you are a DJ people genuinely do throw drugs at you. Sometimes quite literally. They can put a ‘gift’ of drugs in your bags at the club with all the best intentions in the world. It doesn’t occur to them in a few hours the same bags will go through scanners and x-rays, expert dogs and machine-gun wielding professional sadists. Also there was every chance someone like my Tour Manager would put some in there ‘for safe keeping’ and then forget. So it is always best to check.
Gorillaz marks one of UK music’s most ambitious and interesting undertakings.
