The Gorillaz are a british virtual band formed in 1998 by Damon Albarn of Blur, and Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the comic book Tank Girl. They had the idea to create the band while watching MTV in their London flat and originally intended to call the project Gorilla. They are currently in hiatus. The band consists of four fictional band members: 2-D (vocals, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar, vocals), and Russel Hobbs (drums). These characters only appear in animated form and are not alter-egos of real people, as is often mistakenly assumed.
Biography by Last.fm, available under cc by-sa license.
So many songs written about how good is for your health, a specific person being by your side and can't help but thing, that if that person decides to get out, for reasons that are never explained enough, how ridiculously easy, the medicine is turned to pure Cold Turkey. Yeah, inspired by true events!
This is the track that got me into Gorillaz, I liked the melancholy that flew out of that obnoxious band naturally. Abstract with not specific meaning, just throwing misery and ugly looking cartoonish dudes, taking over your mood both on both audio and visual levels.
