“I’m a scary gargoyle on a tower
That you made with plastic power
Your rhinestone eyes are like factories far away
When the paralytic dreams that we all seem to keep
Drive on engines till they weep
With future pixels in factories far away”
Please enjoy today’s Little Ditty,
Lyrics By: Albarn, Damon; Hewlett, Jamie
In the fall of 2010, while Gorillaz World Tour performed in Montreal, an exclusive “Rhinestone Eyes” Storyboard Video was created and featured in the show. Somehow, that video found its’ way from the Montreal Venue to the World Wide Web. These rad dudes not only didn’t whine or insist the video be removed, rather they have provided visitors to their website a direct link to the exclusive rhinestone eyes storyboard video with a jovial reference to its’ mysterious existence on YouTube. Musicians, maybe just mankind in general (particularly Lars Ulrich) could learn a great deal from these incredible artists and musical visionaries!
Thanks for all the great tunes, Gorillaz… Though I remain aware that the albums I hear simply exist as part of your fictional universe, and the songs that I adore are created, recorded and performed by a virtual band of cartoon characters.
