Gorillaz are a virtual band from England, created by Damon Albarn (Blur) and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett in 1998. The band is made up of four completely fictional animated characters – 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs. They had huge success with their first albums, ‘Gorillaz’ and ‘Demon Days’ – the latter being the home of ‘Feel Good Inc.’ Feel Good Inc. reached number 2 in the UK charts, and number 14 in the US, and was the groups most successful song worldwide. The song also features American hip-hop group De La Soul.
‘Feel Good Inc.’ cleverly mixes calm guitar tones and relaxing voices, with hip hop beats and rapping verses. It also has a very old quality to it, making the chorus feel like it could be one of your fathers or grandfathers records. It is a very old school track.
Other songs worth listening to off Demon Days are ‘Dare’ and ‘Dirty Harry’. Also listen to ’19-2000′ and ‘Clint Eastwood’!
Have a great week!
