Ah yes, you gotta love them. What did they call they're style of music again? Dark pop or something? o.O; I love their remix to 19-2000

I think they're coming out with a new album soon, right?

My friends have seen them "live" and they basically set up these HUUUGE screens where they project all their animated selves playing while the artists are really in behind them.

They were pretty cool. I kept hoping they were the smashing Pumpkins in disguise.. I can't get over their breakup... ;_;

I really enjoyed their 19/2000 music video, what was up with that giant moose?

I think it's considered trip hop?

I love their videos too. :)

**tries to imitate 2D** "I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad, I got sunshine in a bag..."

Yeah, I've heard about the group... but I wish I could know about the people who were behind it.

Well, the Gorillaz have a pretty sweet website... http://www.gorillaz.com

From what I remember, the Gorillaz consists of:
Dan the Automator: DJ, producer
He's done a lot of work in the Hip Hop realm... was in another group called Handsome Boy Modeling School

Miho Hatori: Guitarist (Noodle)
Part of Japanese group Cibbo Matto

Del tha Funkee Homosapien: Guest Emcee

I can't remember the other member's names off the top of my head... but I know all of them have done their own stuff for a while before joining together for this project.

I looooooove Gorillaz! I just wish they would put out another album, and soon! Just wondering, does anyone know why the song "Clint Eastwood" is named that? I have no clue and it doesn't make very much sense to me...
btw - Damon Albarn from Blur is the voice of 2D. ^_^

Blur? Those guys behind "Song #2"? Thanks for the info then!

Kia
05-20-2003, 05:51 PM
Yep yep! And your very welcome. I just recently bought Blur's new 'Think Tank' because I loooove Damon's voice. I figure, if i can't get *real* new Gorillaz music, then I'll get the next best thing. ^_^

if I remember "sunshine in a bag" refers to a .45...

I really don't knwo much about Clint Eastwood (the actor). I've watched the video many times but I still don't get it... it's more like a Thriller parody than anything.

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless,but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on


Yeah... Ha Ha!
Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing cos I'm counting no age
Now I couldn't be there
Now you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
And I'm under each snare
Intangible
Bet you didn't think so I command you to
Panoramic view
Look I'll make it all manageable
Pick and choose
Sit and lose
All you different crews
Chicks and dudes
Who you think is really kickin' tunes?
Picture you gettin' down in a picture tube
Like you lit the fuse
You think it's fictional
Mystical? Maybe
Spiritual
Hearable
What appears in you is a clearer view cos you're too crazy
Lifeless
To know the definition for what life is
Priceless
For you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it?
Gunsmokin' righteous with one token
Psychic among those
Possess you with one go

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless,but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on

The essence the basics
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this
Childlike in nature
Rhythm
You have it or you don't that's a fallacy
I'm in them
Every sprouting tree
Every child apiece
Every cloud you see
You see with your eyes
I see destruction and demise
Corruption in disguise
From this fuckin' enterprise
Now I'm sucking to your lies
Through Russ, though not his muscles but the percussion he provides
with me as a guide
But y'all can see me now cos you don't see with your eye
You perceive with your mind
That's the inner
So I'm gonna stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes so mother fuckers
Remember where the thought is
I brought all this
So you can survive when law is lawless
Feelings, sensations that you thought were dead
No squealing, remember
(that it's all in your head)

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future is coming on
It's coming on
It's coming on
My future

*whew* Thats the whole song. Its way too long. Had to cut and copy just so I wouldn get it wrong.lol. ANd 2D stands for two dents.

I love gorillaz! my favorite is Murdoc! yes. why is the name of their video Clint Eastwood... Clint Eastwood??

I actually saw Gorillaz live back in 2002; interesting show, you could see the shadows of the band behind this screen, on the top half of which they played little animations and overlaid slides throughout the show. Noodle's my personal fave, but I also love Cibo Matto, which might explain that.

Kia
08-25-2003, 02:50 PM
I heard about their live show! It must have been cool! ^_^

I actually bought Blur's new cd "Think Tank" b/c there isn't any new Gorillaz stuff comming out and just hearing Damon Albarn's voice makes me think of 2-D. Blur can be my Gorillaz substitute. ^_^

saw them in concert. very different....one of my favourites...

hello kenney

yeah, its basically Damon from Blur's (woo hoo!) side project that he did with Jamie Hewlett the British comic book artist who created Tank Girl (yeah, that crappy movie was based off her work, but dont judge her from that,) I think I heard they were going out or something like that.

Overall, I think the gorillaz is really hit or miss- I mainly like the stuff with Del the Funky Homosapien rapping- anyone who digs the videos should get their 'celebrity take down' dvd.

Kia
08-26-2003, 07:17 AM
I agree about Del. My favourite tracks on the album have to be Clint Eastwood and Rock the House, if only b/c of what Del adds to them. ^_^

Its British Funk that I finally managed to like when I first heard them. But those cartoon characters they have just annoy the hell out of me.
