Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s epic creation, Gorillaz, makes the cover of the latest issue from Complex Magazine. Everyone’s favorite virtual band is back in full force as they celebrate the launch of their third album release, Plastic Beach, along with a scheduled headlining appearance at this year’s Coachella music festival. Check out a snippet of a Q&A with frontman Murdoc, below:
Ungh. It’s half past two in the afternoon and I’ve just been woken by the seagulls. Who are you and what do you want?
I’m from Complex—remember? We were supposed to talk about your new album.
Complex? Amplex? What…? Oh, COMPLEX! The magazine for the discerning gentleman! Why didn’t you say so?!! Hang on, I’ll just pour myself a tot of rum. Wait a moment while I light a Lucky Lung…ahhhh. You don’t mind if I do this interview in my boots and underpants, do you? I’m a bit more relaxed that way.
With you being MIA, though, your bandmates have been going through it. Have you been keeping in touch with them?
The last time I saw Noodle she was being shot at by helicopters as she parachuted off the floating island in the “El Mañana” video—KABOOM! The whole thing just crashed into the ground and exploded. Turns out she was dragged to Hades after that, in a terrible case of mistaken identity. Still…great video.
