An animated band from the UK. Its fictional members are 2-D (singer), Murdoc (bassist), Russell (drummer), and Noodle (guitarist). The real people? Damon Albarn (who became famous with Blur
's Song 2
) and Jamie Hewlett (does the animation, known for Tank Girl
. Its genre? That's arguable. Most songs feature a short, repeated chorus with a large rap section (examples: Feel Good Inc.
and Clint Eastwood
. However, some of their songs are completely away from this genre, featuring more rock stylings (examples: White Light
and Kids With Guns
. They call themselves "Zombie Hip Hop".
They were "pop", thus causing a number of noobs
to download only 3 songs of theirs from the Internet. Only the true fans bought the new album, Demon Days
, which features darker songs, such as Last Living Souls
and All Alone
Their new advertising campaign is called "Reject False Icons
". The idea? Reject pop singers as false icons, and respect true icons, such as themselves.
Actually have NOTHING to do with the animal gorilla
. Some say they are drawn to look slightly monkey, some say they are monkeys. Neither are true.
The animation is the key part. I can't describe it in words.... just see the animation!
