“I think one of the most important ways Gorillaz does that, is in the range of influences that Damon draws on, for the songs.”
“Absolutely. I’ve spoken to Damon and Cass about this, and we’re all in agreement. That to us, is the greatest achievement of Gorillaz. It’s not the amount of albums that were sold, it’s not about the Grammys or the Brits or Ivor Novellos. That’s just record company shit. It’s that we know that a very large percentage of our audience are kids, who go on gorillaz.com, who go on gorillaz-unofficial.com, and through seeing the cartoons and hearing the tune, buying the record, are finding out about this stuff that they knew nothing about. So they’re learning about Vlad The Impaler, or Ronald Searle, or The Specials… so it’s like an education. They really get into it. And they discover it, the music we grew up on.”
"I say! That’s rarer than a witch’s third nipple… Leap years come about once every four years, but Gorillaz videos like this? Mmmm… once in a lifetime. Yup."
