The Good, The Bad & The Queen in concert. With host Bob Boilen. The Good, The Bad & The Queen isn't a band. It's more of a project, featuring Blur frontman Damon Albarn, The Clash bassist Paul Simonon, Afrobeat pioneer and drummer Tony Allen and former Verve guitarist Simon Tong. They're making some of the smartest and catchiest Britpop and rock to reach the U.S. in years. Hear the band recorded live from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club originally webcast on NPR.org March 14, 2007.
