[B]Gorillaz thread[/B] [IMG]http://www.gorillaz.com/geep/images/red-gorillaz-logo.jpg[/IMG] [QUOTE]The terrible FAQ: Q. Who the fuck are they. A. as defined by wikipedia, Gorillaz are an English musical and visual project created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The project consists of Gorillaz music itself and an extensive fictional universe depicting a "virtual band" of cartoon characters. This band has four animated members: 2D (lead vocalist, keyboard, and melodica), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and drum machine), Noodle (guitar, keyboard, and occasional vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). Q. are they alter egos of someone? A. Actually, they are purely fictional, although Damon Albarn says 2D is based off a bit from him, Q. How do they perform live? They be cartoon characters, yo A. well gee nigga home b dawg dis be their magik: They either use Musion Eyeliner (it does a peppers ghost effect) to project the band members on stage Example: [video=youtube;BdAXIj5QViw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdAXIj5QViw[/video] or, the inexpensive option: Have a whole live orchestra, and the singers on. This works since 2D is basically Damon Albarns voice, and De La Soul and other guests just appear example: [video=youtube;1wuPOY-TDk4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wuPOY-TDk4&ob=av3n[/video] [/QUOTE] now stop asking questions.

My favorite band out there.
Fucking love Gorillaz. Plastic Beach was incredible btw.
Wasn't a massive fan of plastic beach to be honest, but it did have a few good songs on there such as On Melancholy Hill
Favorite band of all time. BTW I asked ChaCha a while ago if Gorillaz was working on another album yet because I was bored. They responded with "Actually Yes! Although there is no news about what all star rappers will be on the album, Damon and Jamie have confirmed that another album is in the works." :dance:
i loved gorillaz stuff with del tha funkee homosapien
Fantastic band, my dad actually opened for them with his band when they played at the convention center in Ocean City, MD. He had to ask me who they were :v:
First album I ever bought was the first Gorillaz album. Always remember this being in the artwork inside the cover. [IMG]http://maika.kiev.ua/pictures/katalog_futbolok/review/2026.gif[/IMG]

Oh my God if it's true that they're making another album then I'm a lot happier. Didn't Albarn say that they would never achieve 2010's musical success/accomplishments again?
Don't know about a new Gorillaz album but there's this [url]http://www.mxdwn.com/2011/10/27/news/damon-albarnfleatony-allen-supergroup-dubbed-rocketjuice-and-the-moon-to-make-live-debut-this-saturday/[/url] I love Flea too so this sounds great

Even though I can't see it going far.
one of my favourite bands. one thing i must say is, even though the fall is an awesome album, it feels as if it was missing a little something to make it complete.

Jamie helped design a few Converse shoes to go along with Gorillaz upcoming collaboration, and god, do I want the high-top Pazusus. [img]http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/1568/kgrhqnhue7wtttrclbo9ekt.jpg[/img] For those not in the know, Converse pairs up three artists (I think Matt & Kim, Andrew W.K., and Soulja Boy were the last match up) to record a brand new track. The release date is sometime in February. Let's hope the new song is a good one!
Demon Days was a god tier album the new ones are pretty mediocre
[QUOTE=En-Guage V2;34142024]Demon Days was a god tier album the new ones are pretty mediocre[/QUOTE] Demon Days is the worst. Plastic Beach is by far the best
Dunno about plastic beach but fuck ya so many classics on demon days
[QUOTE=SoSicklyAwesome;34140204]Says the guy with a Justin Bieber avatar...[/QUOTE] You realise it's a satirical avatar right? [editline]10th January 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=En-Guage V2;34142040]Dunno about plastic beach but fuck ya so many classics on demon days[/QUOTE] Only a couple songs I didn't enjoy on Demon Days.
The last half of it is almost totally useless, besides Dare. Plastic Beach has way more classic songs.
I'll give it a look I've heard bad things...
[QUOTE=Eluveitie;34142844]You realise it's a satirical avatar right?[/QUOTE] You realise I was joking, right?
The thing I've seen with plastic beach is either you love it, or you hate it.
I think the thing with Plastic Beach is it's probably the most rap oriented album by the Gorillaz so it might detract some fans who aren't major rap fans. I know that I myself didn't like it much until I warmed up to rap and usually people who like rap also like it.
[QUOTE=SoSicklyAwesome;34147895]You realise I was joking, right?[/QUOTE] You realise jokes about Justin Bieber aren't funny right?
One of the best bands out there. I was a huge fan of Blur, but I'm glad this side project was sooo different. The animations is the best part to me.

Oh God I love it, White Flag is amazing.
[QUOTE=Eluveitie;34155566]You realise jokes about Justin Bieber aren't funny right?[/QUOTE] they're not?
Demon Days and Plastic Beach are both incredible. I find it hard to compare the two though. Their styles are so vastly different.
