Remember a few months back, when I mentioned that Alan Moore, Damon Albarn, and Jamie Hewlett were planning on doing a rock opera about the life of Magician John Dee? Well apparently that’s not happening anymore, as Moore and Hewlett have dropped out. But Albarn Really wanted to make this thing, so he just went ahead and did it anyway.
From the Guardian Article:
Moore’s reasons for dropping the project can be heard in the video below the break, but Hewlett’s reasons seem to still be a mystery.

I’d really have loved to see what Moore could have put together on this, but, if the Guardian article is any indication, Albarn was very much in love with the ideas behind this project, so hopefully it will still be good enough A) to be worth seeing and B) come across the pond. At least in DVD form.
