It seems in fact that, following a dramatic exit from the Gorillaz’s Plastic Beach HQ, the miserable despot Murdoc Niccals has created yet another pirate radio station and is now sending transmissions from a brand new mystery location. What’s this all about? Tune in to the weekly broadcasts to find out.
 

On The AirMonday, February 6th 2012 : Transmission 2 – After establishing his new radio station, the Gorillaz’s Murdoc Niccals now dangles a tasty little tidbit. Supposedly it has something to do with the upcoming Converse 3 Artists – 1 Song track release, but who can be sure with Murdoc?
 


 
 

On The AirWednesday, February 1st 2012 : Transmission 1 – Murdoc breaks his radio silence to let the kiddie-winkles know that he’s created some sort of new monster. Tune in and let good old Uncle Murdoc fill your boots with this sticky bit of news.

It's Shoetime! http://gorillaz.com/news/news/It-s-Shoetime http://gorillaz.com/news/news/It-s-Shoetime "To converse: the exchange of thoughts, feelings or ideas. That's what Gorillaz are all about, working and collaborating and exchanging ideas with other artists and global communicators. We've been trading in ideas and conversing with one another for ten whole years. So I couldn't think of a better bunch of people to help celebrate our decade in the business than the good people over at the Converse shoe company. Plus I've been wearing my Chuck Taylor's since forever." - Russel Hobbs

"As Russel says, we're happy to help sell their soles." - Murdoc Niccals

The partnership between Gorillaz and Converse doesn't end with the shoes - Gorillaz and Converse will host a Gorillaz Sound System evening at the legendary 100 Club in London on Thursday, December 1 to celebrate the forthcoming collaboration and Gorillaz' 10 years in showbiz. Gorillaz will also be part of the latest installment of Converse's 'Three Artists. One Song' collaboration, coming next year. Watch this space for further details...

Dr Dee teaser http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Dr-Dee-teaser http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Dr-Dee-teaser

Tickets available from Ticket Master

Dr Dee is a new work composed by Damon Albarn and directed by Rufus Norris.

In the age before science and magic parted company, Doctor John Dee was the ultimate Renaissance Man: astrologer, alchemist, mathematician and spy, he coined the term 'British Empire' and equipped the Elizabethan Court with the knowledge to make it manifest. The inspiration for both Marlowe's Faust and Shakespeare's Prospero, Dee studied the Heavens, he spoke with Archangels, and he paid a bitter personal price.

Dr Dee explores ritual and symbolism in this country, past and present, using John Dee -- one of England's greatest but largely forgotten men -- as catalyst.

Rufus Norris is a theatre and opera directorwhose West End and Broadway shows include Cabaret, Don Giovanni, Festen, Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Vernon God Little.

Damon Albarn is a musician whose bands and projects include Blur, Gorillaz, The Good the Bad and the Queen and Monkey: Journey to the West for MIF07.

Countdown to Record Store Day! http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Countdown-to-Record-Store-Day http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Countdown-to-Record-Store-Day

Record Store Day you say? Well, what a coincidence, just in time for me opening up again! I see 2D's got a limited edition of "The Fall" out for it!

Sadly it's all too late for my wee shop down in Soho, "Big Rick Blacks Record Shack". It was torn from it's foundations and thrown in the sea by some suits.

It was a struggle out at sea, until I washed up here on Plastic Beach. Y'know, cockles don't buy records anymore! It's all CD's and iCod downloads...

Enough about little old me though, stop this happening to anyone else! Get out there and support your local record store, before you need some oars just to pick up a bit of Vinyl.

Gorillaz are proud to support our friends at independent retail on Record Store Day and has released a Limited Edition vinyl piece of 'The Fall', available at participating stores on April 16th. Go to www.recordstoreday.com for a list of locations.

"Well, this is curious...I don't remember recording this one at all. A whole album...and nothing. But it's got the Gorillaz name on it so I must have done it! Did I? Really? Yeah...I probably did. Did it on an iPad using all the music apps...Fatbooth, FaceAche, iBeer, InstantAlbum...all the great apps. "Great Appz"... Anyway... to all of you 'technology lovers' out there... the CD and digital release will be out soon. "April-ish!" Parlophone said to me...

The Fall vinyl out on Record Store Day http://gorillaz.com/news/news/The-Fall-vinyl-out-on-Record-Store-Day http://gorillaz.com/news/news/The-Fall-vinyl-out-on-Record-Store-Day The Fall is to be released on a Limited Edition 180gm vinyl for Record Store Day on 16th April 2011 by Parlophone. 2d's take on The Fall

"Uhmmm....The first Gorillaz album, our debut record, was more Russel's...like... lots of hip-hop, funk and Cuban dub stars. Demon Days right, came more from Noodle and her dark doomy demos that she made, and all of her contemplations on the world 'in a place of night'. Plastic Beach came out mainly from Murdoc's head, all of his mucky exploits and global collaborations and legendary mash-ups recorded on the Plastic Beach island in the middle of the ocean. Very rum and piratey... And this one The Fall, is mostly just me...something more gentle and just...well...it's just me and an iPad really mucking about...trying out some stuff. Just looking at America and then tapping on the screen...I'm not really concentrating too hard on it....So, right, each album got all of us on it somewhere, but each time it's... more of one of us than the others....Well, that's how I see it anyway."

Gorillaz : The Fall http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Gorillaz-The-Fall http://gorillaz.com/news/news/Gorillaz-The-Fall Merry Christmas!

From the 25th of December go to thefall.gorillaz.com to listen to all 15 tracks in full!

Phoner to Arizona video: Directed by Jamie Hewlett; Co-directed and Edited by Seb Monk; Additional photography supplied by Mike Smith and Oswald Lee Henderson.

From Montreal to Vancouver via Seattle, Texas and Toronto, over 32 days on their North American Tour this autumn, Gorillaz recorded a musical diary. The result is a collection of 15 tracks, some with vocals, some without, some combined performances and some solo.

The 15 track sonic journal, titled The Fall, produced by Gorillaz and Stephen Sedgwick, will be available to download for free by Sub Division fan club members on Christmas Day and will also be streamed on Gorillaz.com from Christmas Day.

The music was recorded during spare time while on the road. "I did it because there's a lot of time that you just spend staring at walls essentially. And it was a fantastic way of doing it" says Damon Albarn. "I found working in the day, whether it's in the hotel or in the venue, it was a brilliant way of keeping myself well." Adding that the collection is "..like a diary, I literally wrote everything on the day in each place and there's a strange sort of sound of America and its musical traditions that comes through. It feels like a journey through America."

A physical release is planned for later in 2011

The full track listing is:

  1. Phoner To Arizona
  2. Revolving Doors
  3. HillBilly Man
  4. Detroit
  5. Shy-town
  6. Little Pink Plastic Bags
  7. The Joplin Spider
  8. The Parish of Space Dust
  9. The Snake In Dallas
  10. Amarillo
  11. The Speak It Mountains
  12. Aspen Forest
  13. Bobby In Phoenix
  14. California And The Slipping Of The Sun
