Gorillaz, that animated band with a rotating membership has finally got a documentary out. For those fo you unfamiliar, Gorillaz has been formed as this odd cyber-group that has a variety of people who contribute. Damon Albarn, most famous for his gig with Blur, has joined forces with a plethora of other superstars. And yet they perform only as this animated group, you never really get to see them. Some major hip hop legends have been a part of this, from DJ Shadow and Del the Funky Homosapien to Dan the Automator and Dangermouse. They’re a pretty innovative experience, so check out the full documentary here, titled Bananaz.
In their own words:
“Bananaz is [Ceri] Levy’s story of the partnership & community behind Gorillaz. He takes you into the studio and out onto the road with this virtual phenomenon, showing a part of Gorillaz never seen before – reality. As one radio interviewer puts it, “It’s a parallel universe – these guys aren’t in the band but they know the animated characters who are.”
