Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn's Olympic Monkey Movie

Here's a little animated treat for you all.

"BBC Sport's marketing campaign and titles for the forthcoming Olympic Games are based upon the traditional Chinese folklore 'Journey to the West'. The animation and music were specially produced by Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn."

Did anyone get a chance to see Hewlett and Albarn's production of "Journey to the West" onstage in the UK last year? I watched a terrific BBC "making of" documentary about it, and am dying to see a filmed recording of the whole thing.

Yeah, I saw it in Manchester. It was everything you might imagine and then some. Absolutely fucking brilliant. If you *ever* get a chance to see it, DO IT!
I burn with jealousy...
