being a damon albarn’s fan is no simple job bc you not only stan one band but THREE, plus his solo career so the material out there for you to stan over is like 4 times a normal artist so get that we’re no ordinary fans, we’re superfans ;D
I’m downsizing a lot of my music / music memorabilia and 90% of that stuff is Damon related. I really want my old magazines and t-shirts and the like to go to some dedicated fans so I’m selling about half my collection on ebay. Everything will have free shipping!
Keep on eye on this space as there is LOADS more stuff coming in the future.
