Gorillaz is a SUPERGROUP, not just another random band. That means it is made up of distinguished artists and musicians that all have great careers and excellent reputations. The group is made up of artists from very different backgounds. Russell is Oakland rapper Del Tha Funkee homosapien who really is a tad geeky, but kicks major ass as an emcee. 2-D and Murdoc are both members of Blur. Last but not least Noodles is played by the lead singer of Cibbo Matto. The first album was produced by Dan the Automator who also produced Deltron 3030. Listen to "Time Keeps On Slipping" by deltron, you might notice a very similar style to the Gorillaz, right down to Damon Alabrns crooning and harmonica.
Lately the Gorillaz have made a combeack with the single "Feel Good Inc.". Their new album will be produced by Danger Mouse (of grey album fame) and rumor has it that del isn't on it, seeing how De La Soul has been doing the rapping on Feel Good Inc.
The animation is a gimmick, but the music is great no matter what. Groundbreaking stuff.
