Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

In 1998 richtten Damon Albarn en Jamie Hewlet deze virtuele band op. De fictieve karakters zijn 2-D, Noodle, Russel Hobbs en Murdoc Niccals. Albarn is de verantwoordelijke voor de muziek en heeft hiervoor samengewerkt met een aantal grote namen in de muziekwereld. De muziekstijl is een combinatie van hiphop, dub, dance en rock. Hewlet houdt zich bezig met het visuele gedeelte en het verhaal rondom de Gorillaz-wereld.


In 2001 verscheen het debuutalbum Gorillaz. Singles als Clint Eastwood en 19/2000 zijn afkomstig van dit album. Pas in 2005 kwam het tweede album uit Demon Days. Het album werd vijfmaal platina in het Verenigd Koninkrijk en werd genomineerd voor vijf Grammy Awards.


Na zes jaar radiostilte rond de band verscheen in 2017 het album Humanz en de daarbij behorende tournee.

Songtekst

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on (x2)
It's comin' on,
It's comin' on, (Right)
It's comin' on, (Yeah)
It's comin' on. (Haha!)

Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing 'cause I'm counting no age
Nah I couldn't be there
Nah you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
And I'm under each snare
Intangible (Ah no)
Bet you didn't think so I command you to
Panoramic view (view?)
Look I'll make it all manageable
Pick and choose
Sit and lose
All you different crews
Chicks and dudes
Who you think is really kickin' tunes?
Picture you gettin' down and ill picture you
Like you lit the fuse
You think it's fictional
Mystical? Maybe
Spiritual
Hero who
Appears in you
To clear your view
When you're too crazy
Lifeless
To know the definition for what life is
Priceless
For you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it?
Gunsmokin'
Righteous with one token
Psychic among those
Possess you with one go

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless,but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future (that's right) is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on

The essence the basics
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this
Childlike in nature
Rhythm
You have it or you don't that's a fallacy
I'm in them
Every sprouting tree
Every child of peace
Every cloud you see
You see with your eyes
I see destruction and demise
Corruption in the skies
From this fucking enterprise
Now I'm sucked into your lies
Through Russel, though not his muscles, but the percussion to provide
for me as a guide
Ya'll can't see me now 'cause you don't see with your eye
You perceive with your mind
That's the inner
So I'ma stick around with Rus and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes so mother fuckers
Remember where the thought is
I brought all this
So you can survive when law is lawless (Right here)
Feelings, sensations that you thought was dead
No squealing, remember that
( it's all in your head)

I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
My future is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
My future is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
My future is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
My future...
