Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000 - 'DoYaThing'

Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000 -...

Converse always manage to pull it out of the bag with their ‘Three Artists, One Song’ collaborations (remember Casablancas/ Pharrell/Santogold’s ‘My Drive Thru’?). ‘DoYaThing’ is no exception. Damon – in his “2-D” voice that...

Gorillaz, James Murphy, Andre 3000 - 'DoYaThing'

Gorillaz, James Murphy, Andre 3000 - 'DoYaThing'

Converse have laced together some impressive line-ups for their ‘Three Artists. One Song’ project over the years (such as Vampire Weekend, Kid Cudi and Best Coast in 2010). This though, has to be top of the pile, featuring the three weirdos...

Album Review: Gorillaz - The Fall (Parlophone)

Gorillaz - The Fall (Parlophone)

Anyone who has been following the career of Damon Albarn ’s second biggest group over the last 13 years will be well aware that post-punk legend Mark E Smith added his inimitable phrasing to ‘ Glitter Freeze ’ last year. The glam-acid...

Live review: Gorillaz, Madison Square Garden, New York

Live review: Gorillaz, Madison Square Garden,...

For all that he’s achieved musically in the last 20 years, Damon Albarn has rarely seemed comfortable in his own skin. The nauseating Mockney of ‘Parklife’-era Blur[/b] was a famously ill-fitting image, the joyless muso that fronted [a]The...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (01/02/10)

1. Gorillaz feat. Mos Def and Bobby Womack – ‘Stylo’ Beefed-up from the cute demo that Damon aired last spring, this has become a glossy, growling beast, muscular and mischievous. Mos Def mutters low in the mix, then Damon’s fey...

Gorillaz: 'D-Sides'

Gorillaz: 'D-Sides'

Crazy as a second Gorillaz B-sides album might sound, this rummage through the ‘Demon Days’ cutting room floor is totally justified. ‘We Are Happy Landfill’ veers between organ-driven ’70s rock and giddy punk rock on a jaw-clenching...

Gorillaz: Demon Days

Gorillaz: Demon Days

If you were to invent a pop act right now, where would you begin? Well, human beings take too many drugs and start boo-hooing when they don’t get their own way, so you’d create something, like a cartoon character, to front the whole shebang....

Gorillaz   :  Dare

Gorillaz : Dare

Ten years on from that Britpop beef and still not sure who won? Take a look around. The Gallaghers may still prowl the stadium circuit slugging out the hits, but it’s Blur who’ve weighed in this decade with a great album (2003’s ‘Think...

Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz  : Lil’ Dub Chefin’

Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz : Lil’ Dub Chefin’

He’s a workshy fop, Damon Albarn. Not only does he get some cartoons to do his promotional work but, having got another band to squeeze the last pennies from the Gorillaz album, he sits back and watches the money flood in. So what do his...

Space Monkeys vs Gorillaz  : Laika Come Home

Space Monkeys vs Gorillaz : Laika Come Home

Going by the dub scientist's rule of thumb that less is more, 'Laika Come Home' is that most exciting prospect - a Damon Albarn album, with all the Damon Albarn taken off it, but if his voice is seldom heard, the man is undoubtedly still present...
