Gorillaz | #gorillazband |
(Damon Albarn, Jamie Hewlett)
[1998-…], London, Greater London, United Kingdom |
Gorillaz is an English virtual band created in 1998.
The band was founded by Damon Albarn (frontman of the band Blur) and Jamie Hewlett (comic book artist and designer).
Gorillaz is fronted by four animated members: 2D (lead vocals, keyboard, and melodica), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and drum machine), Noodle (guitar, keyboard, and backing vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). These members are completely fictional and are not personas of any “real life” musicians involved in the project. Their fictional universe is explored through the band’s website and music videos, as well as a number of other media, such as short cartoons.
Gorillaz’ music is a collaboration between various musicians, with Albarn being the only permanent musical contributor. Their style is an amalgamation of genres, with influences including rock, alternative, trip hop, hip hop, electronica, dub, reggae and pop.
The band’s 2001 debut album Gorillaz sold over seven million copies and earned them an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band.
The future of the project was once under speculation due to the status of Albarn and Hewlett’s friendship; however, both have sorted their differences and stated that the project will continue at some point in the future.
A complete picture of the Gorillaz’ story so far, clever and conceptual music backed up with magnificent songs.
Good session! Enjoy!
