About Gorillaz

Gorillaz are a british virtual band (currently on hiatus) formed in 1998 by a collaboration between 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 is comprised 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.

LMFM Says: 
Damon Albarn has come out of the Britpop era appearing the most ambitious and influential. While Liam Gallagher, since the split of Oasis is starting a new band called errr Oasis and was also the man behind Little James, Albarn is writing operas and persuading a huge variety of artists to collaborate on his conceptual project - Gorillaz. The genre bending band has had some serious classics and with a new album recently released in 2010 are continuing to forge new depths and widening the horizons.
