|"GorillazThe Gorillaz story is now something of a legend. The tale of a world-storming band born out of the sick mind of foul-smelling bass-player and ego-driven mastermind Murdoc Niccals. Undeniably, the four Gorillaz - Murdoc, singer 2D, drummer Russel Hobbs and the diminuitive Japanese guitarist Noodle - have changed the face of music and beyond, forever. An incredibly creative blend of music, animation, technology, wit and humour, Gorillaz re-invented the possibilities of entertainment with every release.This approach has made Gorillaz a global phenomenon, having sold in excess of 15 million records worldwide to date. They've won awards from Grammys to Webbys to MTV awards and more, for practically every aspect of their operation.By rattling the cages of the music industry so fiercely, the fearless nature of Gorillaz' experiments illuminated the way forward for all, pioneering techniques and redefining the cultural landscape along the way.In 2001, Gorillaz burst out of every TV and radio with their seminal hit 'Clint Eastwood' and then unleashed a fantastic collision of dub, reggae, hip hop, punk and Cuban music, in the form of their debut album. They thrilled us and wowed us with their jaw-dropping visuals and wicked sense of adventure. They brought a fresh, original and vital voice, breathing new life into tired formats, and left a rich, colourful legacy in their wake to inspire a whole new generation of artists to come.In 2005 with Demon Days, their second album, the fantastic foursome again blazed across our consciousness with a magnificent piece of work that somehow managed to surpass even the outstanding achievements made by their first record. Both musically and visually Gorillaz had reached further and deeper. The all-embracing attitude of Gorillaz provided a limitless canvass for a whole cast of talents, old and new, allowing each of them to express themselves in a unique, exciting way. Along with the album, another landslide of breathtaking videos, and some magical, moving live performances, Gorillaz gave the world something that had never been seen before - and an enchanting and invigorating sense that the impossible is perfectly possible.By truly uniting an astounding array of influences under one roof, they've displayed exactly what can be achieved when intelligence, understanding and creativity come together for the greater good.And hold on tight folks, because the journey's only just begun..."
