Perhaps it was silly to think something was actually going to happen when the countdown on Gorillaz.com hit zero... Nothing happened.

i feel like Gorillaz performance will be something you have to see, kind of a rarity, although i bet they will tour this year, or is this a one-off?


They're not going to all this trouble for a one-off.


As of now, there are no plans for a US Gorillaz tour. FACT.


And as of now I'm telling you there's going to be one. FACT.


I don't need you to tell me that you have bullshit opinions, it's obvious.

But now that I think about it... Monklish is right. Gorillaz are going to do a huge US tour and hit every market. There is no need to see their set at Coachella... You should all just go home early.


Not a huge tour, but they're going to tour. They're not sinking hundreds of thousands of dollars into building this giant spectacle for a fucking one off you silly twat.


Your assumptions don't trump what I know.

This, you smug cunt.

Album Track by Track by Murdoc

Ahead of the release of 'Plastic Beach' on March 8, Murdoc explains the album in detail

'Orchestral Intro'
I needed something other-worldly to to open the record. This album’s been a while in the making and this needed to be The Big Reveal. It needed to be portentous, vast and… oceanic. But graceful. Like the morphine’s just gently kicking in as the listener glides into the Plastic Bay. Mmmm.

This little symphony was recorded with the Sinfonia Viva orchestra, in Derby, around April 2009. I recorded with them in the old Rolls Royce engine factory, where they built the engines for the World War II spitfires. Which fits the soul of all this - a bygone era, the remnants of war and planes and decay.

continued...

'Welcome To The World Of Plastic Beach' (feat. Snoop Dogg)
Snoop’s the grandaddy, isn’t he? 'Doggystyle' was for many people the record that got them into rap and G-funk. The track also features The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a Chicago nine-piece brass group featuring eight sons of Phil Cohran (who played trumpet with The Sun Ra Arkestra).

This is a proper soundtrack: brass-laden, pimped out, plastic funk, mixing the organic with the plastic to form something new and shiny. And who better to open up this world than Snoop?

'White Flag'
This one features the National Orchestra For Arabic Music. 'Plastic Beach' was intended to be a worldwide collage. Via the guests I brought in and used, I could take little snapshots of the world.

'White Flag' was recorded in Beirut, around the end of March 2009. Over there, the Israelis like to fly their jets really low over the city once a month. It’s called “sabre-rattling”. If they fly low and fast enough, it creates a sonic boom effect, taking out all the windows in the area.

This faintly surreal experience in Beirut and Syria got rolled into various themes on the album. What I wanted to do was then add a British counterpart. And who would fit the bill better than the British grime artists Bashy and Kano? What they bring to this is great.

'Rhinestone Eyes'
This one was recorded in my little submarine. I nicked a bit of my own ‘Electric Shock’ track, and stuck it in here, with a little delay over the top. Came out quite well, don’t you think?

'Stylo' (featuring Bobby Womack and Mos Def)

This is a new sound for Gorillaz. An electro-ish ‘crack funk’ sound, with a little bit of politics and a lot of soul going down. With 'Stylo', I wanted the music to feel euphoric, whilst still putting across how precarious our tightly packed situation is now, worldwide. Where we’re at as a species on this overpopulated planet (“Coming on to the Overload. Overload. Overload”).

Bobby Womack’s chorus, he just explodes into the track. How good is it to get Bobby Womack on the record? This was the first recording he’s made in 15, 20 years, so what an honour. Bobby said he only returned to do this Gorillaz track because his granddaughter said Gorillaz were cool. Which is true. We are.

'Superfast Jellyfish' (feat. Gruff Rhys and De La Soul)
When you think about Gorillaz, it makes sense to have a Super Furry Animal on there, doesn’t it? I’ve always loved them, so I sent a jet over to pick Gruff up and take him over here.

A lot of fun, this track. If you turn it up loud enough all the colours start spilling and washing out of the speakers. You could flood your room with a track like this.

`Empire Ants' (feat. Little Dragon)
A moment’s peace amongst the rush. I sampled a lot of this from the theme music to Tomorrow’s World, and the vocalist is Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon, an electronic band from Sweden.

It was actually 2D who got me into Little Dragon. He played me this lovely song of theirs called 'Twice', which he first heard on the TV show Grey's Anatomy.

'Glitter Freeze' (feat. Mark E Smith)
I'm really glad we managed to get Mark E. Smith on the record. I’m not sure he felt the same, but y'know. He wanted to do his part facing north. “Which way’s north from here?”

We used his question as a little intro, kind of like what we did with Shaun Ryder on 'DARE'. Sometimes the greatest moments are those little mistakes that you catch in the mix when you’re just warming up.

Like ‘Punk’ on the first album, and ‘White Light’ on ‘Demon Days’, this is the album's rawkus section of chaos. Every album’s got to have one.

'Some Kind of Nature' (feat. Lou Reed)
I grew up on Lou Reed, and the Velvets. And I loved Lou’s solo stuff, ‘Magic and Loss’ and ‘The Blue Mask’ and ‘Transformer’ of course.

It’s funny. This track’s got a good ol’ sunshiny vibe. Like something off Sesame Street. Apparently Lou Reed is one of the only people to never appear, or refuse to appear, on Sesame Street. So it’s quite a coup that we got him on this.

I recorded with Lou over in New York and he wanted to do his whole vocal thing in private, on his own. He ordered everyone out the studio. Me too. I love Lou, but y’know: this is my album. I wanna know what’s going down. Still, his track... wow! Solid gold.

`On Melancholy Hill'
The melancholy hill - it’s that feeling, that place, that you get in your soul sometimes, like someone’s let your tyres down. It’s nice to break up the album with something a little lighter. It's good to have something that’s a genuine pop moment on every album. And this is one of those.

‘Broken'
Erm….I don’t really know what to say about this track, y’know, like Frank Zappa said “talking about music is like fishing about architecture”. This track just works. I don’t want to talk about it. Is that, OK?

‘Sweepstakes' (feat. Mos Def)
The Hypnotic Brass brothers give us that full-on Chicago brass muscle, turning this track out into a ‘Quincy Jones’ version of hip hop, MC’ed superlatively by Mos Def. An absolute gent. I first met him in The Box club on the Lower East side of NYC. I like his rap work, and I saw him in Be Kind Rewind.

“Sweepstakes: you’re a winner.” Collect your little plastic prize at the counter. There’s a lot of rubbish that gets dangled in front of people on this Earth. Making people feel like a winner is one of the best way of hooking them in.

`Plastic Beach' (featuring Mick Jones and Paul Simonon)
It’s a special moment for fans of Gorillaz and the Clash. How did this come about? Well, I had commandeered Paul Simonon from the Good, The Bad And The Queen. And it made sense.

Gorillaz were always influenced by The Clash. They were always my favourite band, I loved how they took the heart and soul of punk and reggae smeared it in London graffiti and paint and then sailed it round the world. I don’t think that’s a million miles from what Gorillaz do now.

'To Binge' (feat. Little Dragon)
Another collaboration with Little Dragon, `To Binge' ends up as a beautiful duet between vocalist Yukimi Nagamo and 2D. A Hawaiian version of melancholy, yeah? You don’t see a lot of miserable Hawaiians, do you? It’s not known for its grim outlook on life.

`Cloud Of Unknowing' (feat. Bobby Womack)
This track’s a mirror of the opener, a final reflection on the Plastic Beach. Bobby Womack’s performance on this song can still bring tears to my eyes. That mixture of hope and uncertainty in his voice – the age and the experience, the fear and the joy... 'scuse me.

This song, like the Who’s 'Love Reign O’er Me' is the moment that gathers together the events of the album - and pauses for reflection: “Waiting to see what the morning brings, it may bring sunshine on its wings….”

`Pirate Jet'
'Pirate Jet' takes the album out swinging, a finale with shuddering jazz hands: “Did you like the show? It was called PLANET EARTH". We’re finished and now everyone’s evolved into plastic. A new breed of human.

But y’know, I want to clear this up. 'Plastic Beach'. It's not a green record. It's not a judgement on the world. It's just a picture. Plastic Beach: it's another place, another way of looking at the world. And this is its soundtrack....

Ah, you're right... Their site says that. Amazon only said ebooklet the last time I checked, so I wasn't sure.

Thank you sir, and might I add your knowledge of captains is thoroughly impressive. Has anyone figured out the banana challenge?

cormaic

Oh I don't claim credit for that list, I'm just as thankful for it as you are.

For the bananas, you have to knock a banana onto the peeler from the box at the other edge of the room, and then move to the peeler and move it back and forth fast to peel the banana, but it doesn't seem to work unless you have the screen pushed far left, if that makes any sense. The peeling thing would not respond to my mouse if I had the screen close to the bed, but when it was closer to the door on the left it would work. You peel five bananas for the achievement

I think it's odd how nobody ever mentions the best example. radiohead & kraftwerk in 2004 actually had 10 minutes gap between them. radiohead ended at 10.30, kraftwerk began at 10.40.

also I think the last 30 minutes or so of DM did overlap with Daft Punk.

Yep, that's how it was scheduled, but Radiohead came out late and went over...9:05-10:45.

These motherfuckers better play NYC - Just read an interview with Mick Jones where he says he and Paul Simonon are part of the Gorillaz touring band.

Oh fuck yes.


I've actually never tried to get a good spot for a headliner without camping out. Is it really that impossible?

Depends on the headliners. For Gorillaz, Im guessing one will have to be there before Pavement starts to get a good spot.

nothing new really, but from NME:

"At the moment I wouldn't want to play Glastonbury or something because I'd be setting myself a very high benchmark but we're definitely going to play some big gigs in the UK or in England or in London this year," he said. "The band is sounding really good, I'm really excited."

The Clash's Mick Jones later told NME.COM that he and bandmate Paul Simonon would be involved in the band.

BlackSwan
02-25-2010, 01:35 PM
how so?

Well, I have to choose between being able to see full sets of Thom Yorke, Jonsi, and Orbital three days in a row in a SF, and possibly be able to see Gorillaz if they announce another US show, or struggling to try to see them all on Sunday at Coachella. Festival sets experience-wise can be great, but musically I prefer solo shows, especially since Jonsi's stage production seems much more suited to a theater than a festival, and all the shows in SF are at great venues.

At the same time, I have a feeling Gorillaz set at Coachella could potentially be more special than all the other shows they may do, but then again that's just an assumption. I've always camped out for my must-see headliners, but that is probably going to be impossible if I want to see Jonsi. There is just too much unknown, and major risk with both to make this decision easy.

I dont think that Gorillaz/Madonna performance was a hologram at all. It looks like an LCD screen or projection to me, with Russel on a separate screen above them. If you look at it closely, Gorillaz look like they are on some platform. When De La Soul comes out you can see two things. You can tell that they are walking around on the real stage. Also, you can actually see that Gorillaz are surrounded by a pitch black rectangular screen and the actual stage is dimly lit behind it. Then Madonna pops up out of a similar platform, but that one is at a different height. She steps down onto Gorillaz's platform, and starts to move around very weirdly, like you would see the frames of a film. She also looks slightly pixelated, easier to see for a human than an animated character, so i think she is not there at all. That Madonna is part of the LCD screen as well; Thats how they make it seem like she walks behind Murdoc, but in front of Noodles. Its all computer generated and displayed on some screen. Madonna then walks off screen, and the camera is held on Gorillaz so that some sort of transition can be made where TV Madonna disappears, and Real Madonna can do her dance routine. You'll notice that the camera work is alot more dynamic and there are more closeups of Madonna once she starts dancing.

EDIT: I just noticed that the two Madonnas arent even wearing the same thing. The cake is a lie.

Well you know, if you have an alias, you can use it to post the most dumbfounded, idiotic, malicious things, to say the least, and the worst that can happened is it can be inderectly linked to your main username...Everybody wins!

Barnes and Noble has different previews: http://music.barnesandnoble.com/Plastic-Beach/Gorillaz/e/5099962754729/?itm=8&USRI=gorillaz

So does this German site: http://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/Gorillaz-Plastic-Beach-CD-DVD/hnum/9396980

I listened to all three clips for tracks that I was curious about. They don't suck, so that's nice. Snoop's rap is pretty silly.

And now I know what Lou Reed, etc are doing.

surprisingly easy for me, and I usually cave in first. But I HAVE been listening to Stylo and SFJF on a loop now

Why dont we look at sexy Damon to pass the time?

i just listened to the radio rips. you were right, BS, rhinestone eyes is really good. and, it was great hearing snoop on plastic beach. but, i gotta say...stylo is, by far, still my favorite jam on the album (from the tracks i've heard...i even love the alex metric rmx).

i'm getting very pumped for their set on sunday. i may be setting myself up, but my gut tells me that it's going to be very memorable.

"White Flag" was posted on the Gorillaz FB page for about 10 minutes, then mysteriously disappeared.

I liked what I heard, it had a long orchestrated intro and rhymes from Kano. I'm thinking the video will reappear on Youtube soon.

Ok, you probably will all think I'm crazy, but I've been trying to find a gorillaz song that I had on a burned cd when the Selftitled album came out. My buddy burned the selftitled album for me, and it had like 2 remixes of clint eastwood and 19200, and it had a song, that featured del, and he rapped about being in this house and the cops trying to bust in, and the chorus had something about "money stacks" or stacks of money or something....cant find any info on a third del song though..

And yes..it was definitely del, and it sounded like nothing But a Gorillaz song.


I Never dl anything off piratebay, but this one torrent claims to have like 46 unreleased remixes and songs that cant be found on gorillaz album..so my hunt continues



Does ANYone know what the hell im talking about :(
