Show Notes

There’s plenty of news to get excited about this week, as Damon Albarn premiers a new Gorillaz song and grows ever closer to his dream of seeing his beloved musical children brought to life via holograms. After that, Dillon and Trevor hop into the studio with various incarnations of the Gorillaz live band to check out the Demon Detour — a series of live tracks recorded to promote Demon Days in 2005 — as well as the group’s live iTunes session from 2010. Not all the performances are great, but hey, even the duds make for some “lively” discussion!

After trying to figure out the most passive aggressive way to gaslight the firstborn son of Jamie Hewlett into appearing on the show, Dillon and Trevor take a better look at two former Gorillaz producers by checking out a pair of promotional mixtapes they created while working with the band: “Gorillazish Mix” — a phase one compilation tracing the musical influences of Dan “the Automator” Nakamura — and “Roadkill”, a phase two showcase of the group’s new collaborators directed by Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton. It’s a level of content-scrounging unlike any the show has seen before! ...
