Rock 'n' Roll Call: Gorillaz - The Fall

The FallNext up is Kong and Cheetah's favorite band, Gorillaz, the album is The Fall and it's on Virgin Records. It's the fourth effort by this virtual cartoon band, as such, they will never fight over each others girlfriends, over money, over who's driving the bus - there is no dreaded creative differences - they can play longer than the Grateful Dead - they're cartoons - cartoons as defined by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett - it's Max Headroom - don't remember him - as a band. You can look Max up - so, imagine Max as a band with pop sensibilities, popular culture connections, overdubs, rock stars sitting in everywhere, over the top pure power pop and hip hop, the bass player working overtime - in short, it's all over the place, sort of like King Kong who can go anywhere - and wherever Gorillaz goes, they're pretty interesting.
