ROTW – Gorillaz – Gorillaz

Gorillaz album artwork

 

Hello ……. is there anybody there?

To put paid to the rumour that I only bought vinyl in 1979 I’ve chosen Gorillaz’ self-titled  album, released in 2001 as this week’s Record Of The Week. I only bought this last year from the fabulous Tribal Vinyl at Eumundi Markets on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The menacing sound of The Day of The Dead excerpt from “M1 A1” was pumping out of the store as I walked past and I just couldn’t resist …….. well I resisted a bit because Tribal had such a great selection of music and I like to browse.

Gorillaz comprised a collective of animated characters, Russell, 2D, Noodle & Murdoc and was a real departure for 2D, alias, Damon Albarn. It heralded a new age for the Blur frontman as he went from project to project adding his Midas touch wherever he went. Gorillaz is an eclectic mix of Hip Hop, Electro, Pop Dub Reggae and Punk …. and cartoons. As Clint Eastwood once said, ” It’s a biggaro ting Jah!” …… the future is coming on

What ever happened to dear old Damon?
