If you weren’t at your computer on Friday, April 30, you missed the live stream of the Gorillaz performing at London’s Roundhouse. We wish we could show the whole gig, which was great.
Their performance featured tracks from the new album Plastic Beach with special guests Mos Def, De La Soul, Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg and more. Plus The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon were a part of the backing band.
Since we can’t bring you that gig, we’ll give you a taste with videos of a recent performance by Gorillaz on the British show “Later … with Jools Holland.” Here are videos of “Stylo” and “White Flag.” Be ready to be grooved by Damon, Mos Def and many more.
In case you’re wondering what’s been up with Gorillaz of late, a lot has changed for the virtual supergroup since their album Demon Days. There’s been much madness, mayhem, kidnappings and explosions. Evil Svengali Murdoc Niccals has taken over the fantastical floating island of garbage known as Plastic Beach.
With airborne pirates hot on his heels and moaning whales surrounding Plastic Beach, Murdoc Niccals clearly has just one choice: Plan a massive party, and let the new Gorillaz album loose upon London and the world. All you have to do is watch the cyborgian experience unfurl.
