So musician Damon Alburn (Blur) and cartoonist Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl) joined forces to create The Gorillaz, a fictional cartoon band with real albums that are actually kind of cool. They then upped the ante with Monkey: Journey to the West, a live “circus opera” in Chinese.
Now, they’re releasing an album of the music from the production, and Hewlett has directed a music video for the first single.
I have no idea what the hell is going on, but it seems like Damon’s come a long way from getting his head checked by a jumbo jet.
Anyone speak Chinese?
