Endangered Gorillaz

Endangered Gorillaz

Wow, remember back in 2005 when this song came out from an animated

And it was just amazing that Damon Albarn from Blur was making such great music on the side


Then their second album featured just as many awesome songs

Tomorrow Comes Today


On Melancholy Hill

Jamie Hewlett was disappointed that not everything on Plastic Trees was animated. See this video

And thus, here's probably the last Gorillaz music video you'll ever see

Speaking of Gorillaz, it looks like the reported falling out between Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett in 2011 may have been true, despite representatives squashing those rumors at the time. Albarn called the band's future "unlikely" and said that it was Hewlett's decision to end the band. He also hinted that Hewlett's anger likely came from the lack of visuals on the Plastic Beach tour: "The music and the videos weren't working as well together, but I felt we'd made a really good record, and I was into it. So we went and played it." Gorillaz' "DoYaThing", the Converse song featuring James Murphy and Andre 3000, just came out in February.
Farewell Gorillaz. You were probably one of my favorite bands of the 00's.
