Biography

London, United Kingdom (1998 – present)

Gorillaz are a virtual band formed in 1998 by Damon Albarn of Blur, and Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the comic book Tank Girl. They had the idea to create the band while watching MTV in their London flat and originally intended to call the project Gorilla.

The band consists of four fictional band members: 2-D (vocals, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar, vocals), and Russel Hobbs (drums). These characters only appear in animated form and are not alter-egos of real people, as is often mistakenly assumed. There is an extensive fictional back-story behind these band members, written by Albarn and Hewlett. Their albums, several of their music videos, and their autobiographical book Rise Of The Ogre all tell the saga. Damon Albarn is the only permanent musical contributor to the band, which is also a collaboration between various musicians. Their style is broad with a large number of alternative influences including , , and .

They have released four studio albums: Gorillaz (2001), Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010) and The Fall (Also in 2010). Additionally, they have put out two B-side collections, G-Sides (2001) and D-Sides (2007), and a reggae remix of the Gorillaz album entitled Laika Come Home (2002).

    @Agusplayer I've been reading 2016 for quite a while now so unless there's some disater, I think he'll stick with it. Jamie's been putting drawings of the phase 4 Gorillaz characters on his Instagram for months as well, so I think we're closer than we've ever been.

    Well, last year Damon said in a festival that he was writing new stuffs for Gorillaz and that a new album was going to be realised in 2015. We all know that Blur realised an album in April (which was surprising) and now Damon is talking about Gorillaz in 2016. I wouldn't think that much in what he says... I want a new Gorillaz album too but Damon is too busy lately. I hope he can find time. I can imagine Damon recording the new album during the South American's Blur tour (which starts in October) lol. Oh, and he has Wonder.land again in November.

    С этой группой давненько знаком уже. Лет 10 как. Тогда увидел на каком-то музыкальном канале клип Feel Good Inc. и понеслось. Кто они, что они. Потом в дальнейшим покупал диски. В те года хотел плакат этой группы прикупить себе, но его нигде не было, а заказывать к тому времени я не умел [да и не знал, интернета то не было]. В общем я предпочитаю для себя не просто слушать аудиозаписи допустим, а просматривать клипы. Именно они мне и нравятся. Тексты некоторых песен также весьма привлекательны и даже грустны. Добротно!

    i have ~3600 scrobbles of Gorillaz. I swear, one day I'll fix my tags on the song names. Many have the featuring artists on them and many don't have.

    It's okay to like The Fall but it's not a studio album.
