If you haven’t heard, Rocketjuice and the Moon is the name of the project and corresponding album by Damon Albarn, Flea, and Tony Allen. When combined with members of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Sun Ra Arkestra trumpet player Phil Cohran, Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara, and South African hip-hop crew M.Anifest, they become a world music collective known as Another Honest Jon’s Chop Up, and it was during Another Honest Jon’s Chop Up performance in London on Saturday when Rocketjuice and the Moon previewed the track called “Poison”. Check out a recording below.
Update #2: The YouTube channel rocketjuicethemoon has uploaded live recordings of tracks titled “Red Skies” and “The Moon”. Check both cuts out below.
Update: As our reader @SamHecquet points out, you can also listen to a recording of the collective’s entire performance in Marseille, France on Sunday at France Inter (scroll all the way to the bottom.)
Over the weekend, we posted live videos of Another Honest Jon’s Chop Up’s Friday night performance in Ireland and you can check out that post here. The collective next performs at Dublins Vicar Street on Tuesday, November 1st.
