Used live for Gorillaz's "Stylo", as is visible in the London Roundhouse gig from the Escape to Plastic Beach Tour at 7:51. The mic is specified by Damon Albarn’s longtime FOH engineer Matt Butcher in this July 15, 2019 article by Entec Sound and Light.
Although Butcher described his microphone selection as “very standard”, one departure from the norm was a Shure 527B CB-style mic with a modified push-to-talk switch that was used for distorted vocal sounds on songs such ‘Stylo’ and ‘Rhinestone Eyes’. “I’m a great believer in getting the right sound at source,” said Butcher.
