And we thought, let’s make a fabricated band, but kind of interesting.” The band originally identified themselves as “Gorilla” and the first song they recorded was “Ghost Train“. which was later released as a B-side on their single “Rock the House”.
Product description. Gorillaz is the debut album by British virtual band Gorillaz, released in 2001. It contains the singles “Clint Eastwood”, “19-2000”, “Rock the House” and “Tomorrow Comes Today”.
The Gorillaz universe still exists almost entirely online, and every bizarre, dark, hilarious twist and turn can be followed if you have the time. To roughly sum it up, the Gorillaz story is divided into four phases at this point – one for each album.
“Despite rumors to the contrary, the Gorillaz live and misbehave in London W10.” That’s the message we just got from representatives of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s cartoon band.

Not that it matters – Gorillaz is a virtual band. It doesn’t entirely exist. Its four members (2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs, and Noodle), designed and drawn by Hewlett, are fictional.
2-D and the other Gorillaz characters have been portrayed as progressively aging with each new Gorillaz release. 2-D was originally in his early 20s when Gorillaz was released, but has since aged and is in early 40s as of 2018.
The band originally identified themselves as “Gorilla”, which may be a pun on the word “guerrilla” which comes from the words “guerrilla warfare” – a term used to describe underhanded rather than overt war tactics .
Headed by Blur lead singer Damon Albarn and drawn by Tank Girl creator Jamie Hewlett, the idea behind Gorillaz was one that allowed Albarn to escape fame and facial recognition . “One of the things that really touched us was the nature of celebrity and the cynicism of popular culture,” Albarn once said.
