wow that was a pretty dark/depressing ending. This band used to be so much fun....

I think this might be the best animation I've seen from these guys... song just doesn't sound like a single, though.

Best song off the album, I think.

Yeah I was thinking that El Mañana was an odd choice for a single. "Kids With Guns" "November Has Come" and "All Alone" all seem like better singles. It almost seems like they chose this song because they really wanted to continue the "Feel Good Inc" video. I really love the video, the animation is really amazing. I especially like the "shaky" camera shot as the island falls to the ground and also the slow motion bullet hits.

bleak (but quite magnificently so.)

i began to see this short movie for casual. i like animations. but this is a very well-worked one. it's darkly ambient, it has got rhythm. and music is really good.

But the Gorillaz film is still in the distance.

A interview on

What actually happened to the film? What went wrong?

"Noodle: With most great works you need to have an element of vision and planning. A clear strong vision of the path that would need to be forged in order to reach the destination you wish to arrive at. However the people we worked with in Los Angeles were making everything up as they went along.

Russel: It became a romantic horror adventure comedy

2D: On Ice.

Russel: No-one was focused enough. 2D couldn't understand the difference between film and reality. Murdoc’s partying was relentless. He even got himself kicked out of the Playboy Mansions for stealing ashtrays.

Murdoc: And Russel got a big fat ego and then changed his name to ‘R Diddy’

Russel: We would have persevered if we thought the outcome would have been worth it, but it felt like it would have been sub-standard. So, eventually we decided to cut our losses and take time off to recuperate.

Noodle: We still have a plan to make a Gorillaz film. But as is in keeping with Gorillaz sensibility it will be something that is instigated from an original Gorillaz idea and not something dreamed up in a film studio office. It must have a purpose and reflect something of value in the Gorillaz world

Russel: Not just a ‘girl meets toy’ cartoon caper film."
