It was a real shame to see the passing of Richard Pryor, he was a massive influence and was a huge part in creating the foundation of modern comedy. He leaves a great legacy in his wake and will be sorely missed.

  Russel Speach Bubble

I saw him once in LA live at The Comedy Store around 1996. It took him a while to get to the stage.
He told us at the time that he had MS. He said he caught it off his wife. It was when she had PMS.



Gorillaz have been nominated for an outstanding five awards at next year's
Grammys: Record of the Year - Feel Good Inc.; Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals - Feel Good Inc. (with De La Soul); Best Urban Alternative Performance - Dirty Harry; Producer of the Year - Danger Mouse; Best Short Form Music Video - Feel Good Inc. Winners will be announced at the ceremony on 8th February in Los Angeles.

Reached for comment at Kong Studios, the band had this to say:

Oh it’s that time of year again is it? The ‘Grab-A-Grammy’ Competition. Five nominations?! That’s great…Record of the Year? Really? Well I’d have to agree with that. I bought a copy for definite. In fact it hasn’t been off my turntable all year.

On behalf of Gorillaz I’d like to say how pleased we are with these nominations. Dangermouse did such an incredible job with the production on this record, so it’s great that he’s nominated for Best Producer.

Yeah, we just heard. Five nominations… That’s er… wicked. My mum’s gonna be well pleased.

On behalf of all of Gorillaz I’d like to say we’re all really pleased to hear this… De La Soul gave us such a great rap for ‘Feelgood Inc’ so its great that we’re nominated for the Best Pop Collaboration. But I’m really excited to hear about all of these nominations. It’s a real honour.

‘Best Urban Alternative Performance’?…Wow! That’s a mouthful. But Dirty Harry’s a great song and the kids choir sang so well on it. Er…Thanks for the nomination.

Plus working with Bootie Brown was an absolute pleasure. He’s one of the most well-mannered and considerate people you're ever gonna meet.

For once I’m…speechless. Really. I genuinely hope we win…’cos…er…I hear Grammys go for a really good price on E-bay. It’s incredible, isn’t it? Five Grammy nominations and I still can’t get someone to come round and unblock the drains…Our studio stinks.

Oooh... you’re so lucky!



It’s official: Noodle, Murdoc, 2D and Russel have been busy wading through an epic tidal wave of new artists and potential collaborators, in their quest to unearth brave new stars. Now it’s time for the verdict. The future is bright, the future is Kong-sized.

Search For A Star has seen more than 100 entries per week whittled down to around 10 to be put forward for the public vote. The 200+ entries displayed so far have been viewed over a million times.

Submissions have included pictures, music and videos; artists, musicians, circus acts, directors, special effects dons and weirdos have produced everything from cinematic genius to oddball homebrew fun. Hundreds of talented animators have put forward entries using a wide range of techniques, from stop frame to hand drawn to computer animation. With over 1000 image entries submitted alone the site will be opening a gallery room after the competition to display even more of the talent that SFAS has uncovered.

Over the 20 weeks since kick-off, Search For A Star has shone a light on a startling array of impressive entries, creaming off the best via weekly public votes. There are just 2 more weekly public rounds to go - the 23rd round is a wild card round and is reserved for the entries from previous weeks that Gorillaz think deserve another chance. Entries have already closed for the final round so if you've got through, now is the time to start chewing those finger nails in anticipation.

On 18th July the daily public vote begins. All 23 leading entries will be displayed on TV screens in the Search For A Star room. Visitors can vote on their least favourite entry, with the 2 finalists with the least votes booted off at the end of the day. By Saturday 23rd only the lucky 13 finalists will be left, as the competition hurtles on to its explosive conclusion.

The competition intensifies on the 25th - 2 more entries per day will be voted off every day until only 3 remain. From the 1st August the voting takes a different tack - visitors will be asked to nominate their favourite to win.

The glorious winning entry (and the winner's fabulous prize) will be announced on Wednesday 3rd August. The winner will be invited to collaborate with Gorillaz in a manner suitable to their unique talent.

Time Line
18th July - 22nd July: Public vote begins, eliminating 2 a day till the Lucky 13 remain.
25th July – 29th July: The Lucky 13 are put to the Public Vote, eliminating 2 a day till 3 remain.
1st August: The final 3 are put to the Public Vote
3rd August: Winner announced

Noodle Speach Bubble
" Part 'Billie Jean', part Rockwell. The beat on this tune is as infectious as influenza. We asked our friends De La Soul to lend a rap to the song, so they came over to the studio and hung out for a day. In the evening they delivered this crazy, gooning fun-filled rap."
Russel Speach Bubble

Murdoc Speach Bubble
" This cut is unstoppable."
Russel Speach Bubble

" That reminds me. Posdnous still owes me five pounds. I'll ring him now. "

The brand new video for 'Feel Good Inc' is here now for you to see. The band have been very busy making it - 2D and Murdoc speak out for the first time about excess and hedonism, exactly what the video's about and what really happened on the shoot...

2D: I think Gorillaz built a tower around themselves that they couldn’t get out of. Of excess and hedonism. The video is based on this feeling. For a while it was great to be on the inside, but the party’s got out of hand. It’ s become like the Last days of Pompeii….a…er…Sodding Gommorah. The Feelgood Inc Tower represents this. The palace we built has become a prison. In the video I’m just waking up from this year-long hedonists dream, and I realise that maybe… the fruits of success have turned sour.

Noodle is outside of the Tower, in the pale morning-after light, sitting on the edge of this floating island. And you can see she knows what’s happening. But people have to wake up to it themselves. So that’s what the video is about; being trapped by the things you make, and realising everyone else is caught up in it. Using it. Just…they need their party to continue, to keep this thing afloat. The Tower of Babel.

Murdoc: Apart from the obvious thing, which is my gyrating hips, the coolest thing about the video would be the the hydraulics on this gig. Just for the windmill section alone cost about 3.5 million pounds. That’s sterling. We had to buy a small island, make a mold of it and then scrape out all the insides. When that was done we filled the whole thing full of helium. Using the motor from the windmill we managed to get the thing to float, but it was an absolute bugger.

Demon Days will be released on 23rd May (11th may Japan, 24th May in the US), and will be preceeded by the single Feel Good Inc, released 9th May.

Gorillaz previewed their new album, Demon Days' for the first time at last weekend's South by South West festival in the USA. Damon Albarn and Dangermouse turned up to talk to the media about the contrbutions they'd made to the record. The band had a lot to say about it.

Murdoc: Well the thing about Gorillaz is that so many people involved in it just feel a need to overplay their part. If Damon Albarn and Dangermouse want to swan around Texas around telling people that they made the album, fine. It just highlights their desperate lust for glory really. There’s only four people who are responsible for making that record. Me, Noodle, Russel and er…2D. And to be honest, mate, I’ve even got my suspicions about some of them.

Russel: Both Damon & Dangermouse gave us a lot of support in making this album. There’s no way, despite the devastating skills that Gorillaz have as a band, that this album would have coming out sounding as it does without the work that they did. I feel it’s right for them to talk about their input in its creation. Also Gorillaz have always tried to do as little live TV promotion as possible, in order to keep the mystique, so in a way they’re kinda helping us out.

Noodle: Pah! I am not concerned with talk shows and your TV pie. My time is more valuable. I am already busy demo-ing for the Third Gorillaz album. Then this trilogy will have it’s conclusion.

2D: South by Southwest? That’s in Texas ain’t it. I hope Albarn brings me back a nice hat.

Russel: We asked them both to be the ambassadors for the ‘Demon Days’ album. Having had more of a first-hand insight into its creation they are in a perfect position to represent it to the outside world. Also I think Murdoc has already done enough damage by overstating his limited opinions in the press. So in order to keep the campaign fresh we thought it would be good for people to get a new angle on the music from these two, rather than just the usual venomous comments from our bass-player. Both Damon and Dangermouse are real music lovers so I’m sure they can talk about the album with integrity.



"Every great band is destroyed by their success: cartoon bands are no exception."

So says Gorillaz guitarist Noodle, who took the helm for new album Demon Days, the follow-up to the band's multi-million selling debut Gorillaz. "Noodle wrote most of this album herself," says drummer Russel Hobbs. "Murdoc may try and take the credit for it, but from the basic sketches to the finished album, this was Noodle's vision."

Demon Days will be released on 23rd May (11th may Japan, 24th May in the US), and will be preceeded by the single Feel Good Inc, released 9th May.

Co-produced by Gorillaz/Damon Albarn and the Grey Album mastermind Danger Mouse, Demon Days was recorded at the band's own Kong Studios.

The album is a darker and more intense affair than 2001's Gorillaz, explains Noodle: "The soul of the recording can't avoid being a manifestation of the time, climate and location of the place we were in when it was recorded. Consequently the colours are rich, dark and heavy while the rhythms are clean, strategic and relentless. It has a consciousness to it."

"Like someone has taken the first album and coloured it in," adds singer 2D.

Gorillaz reputation for excellence and enthusiasm has secured them a stellar guest list. Featured on the album are contributions from De La Soul, Neneh Cherry, Martina Topley-Bird, Roots Manuva, MF Doom, Ike Turner, Bootie Brown of the Pharcyde, Shaun Ryder, Dennis Hopper, the London Community Gospel Choir and the San Fernandez Youth Chorus.

The full tracklisting is as follows:


2.Last Living Souls

3.Kids With Guns

4.O Green World

5.Dirty Harry

6.Feel Good Inc.

7.El Mañana

8.Every Planet We Reach Is Dead

9.November Has Come

10.All Alone

11.White Light


13.Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head

14.Don't Get Lost In Heaven

15.Demon Days

The band is currently shooting a promo for Feel Good Inc. with image consultant Jamie Hewlett, starring the track's guest performers De La Soul alongside Gorillaz.



It's official. Gorillaz have completed recording their brand new album. The very first outing for the forthcoming album is said to be happening at this years' South by South West festival in the USA. Murdoc is rumoured to be taking the album over in person. He said, "I'm hand-delivering this precious baby myself. One slip up and these 15 tracks of gold will be splashed all over the internet faster than you can say 'bring forward the release date'" We'll keep you posted on all the latest news on the album release as soon as we have it.

Warning, Danger:
"Gorillaz.com Kong Studios has now officially re-opened. The Search For A Star Campaign is underway. To enter the competition you can visit 'The Auditions Room' to be found at the new Kong Studios. Doors open after Noodleblast.
To talk further of my mission I am hosting my own special Internet only communication-bulletin - NOODLEBLAST - to be cast live today 15th December at 5pm GMT. I will be taking and answering all questions pertaining to Gorillaz, the competition, live events, zombies and the new album. All plans - Past, Present & Future."
Noodle: 'We must stem the tide - or all lie in equal and impartial peril'

8th December 2004 12pm GMT
The sprawling metropolis that is Kong Studios, home of Gorillaz, has been re-built and the grand extension is finally finished.
Noodle, guitarist of Gorillaz, has returned from Japan, and the others - Murdoc, 2D and Russel - are on their way. Having learnt the truth of her past, she now speaks English. What's more, Noodle has also written a brand new album for the band!
But there is a black storm brewing...........
On returning to Kong she has discovered that the building is awash with the diseased, walking undead. What could have caused the dead to live again; mindless automatons whose brains are now Ebola-ridden slush? Once intelligent beings reduced to moaning groaning ghouls with cold, dead lifeless eyes? What's the cause? What's the cure!?!
With her new-found skills of translation, she has spent the last six months studying all culture from the multiple TV screens of Kong Studios. And the evidence speaks for itself.....a connection?
Noodle continues:
"The dark is rising! There is danger!! Disease walks our corridors!! We need fresh talents. Gorillaz are looking for new collaborators. In an effort to find a solution, I, Noodle am to launch the World's First Global Internet Talent Contest to be held within the walls of Kong Studios at Gorillaz.com
It is to be a rare Olympian tournament that engulfs all forms of artistic expression, with an aim to seek out the next wave of talented artists. The prize?.....The prize is to be new Gorillaz collaborators!.
We are looking for true artists. Special kids! Musicians, child rappers, animators, inventors, writers, painters, comics, Mexican magicians, maverick plumbers, graffiti visionaries, imaginary Jedi's or electric chefs.....People of vision!
People with souls, and a joy for experimentation.
The canvas is blank and the choice is yours!.
Are you a new Gorillaz Collaborator?
Are you what we're looking for ?!
