Publisher Comments:

"I tell you what, right, I can guarantee you're going to get some real juicy bits of Gorillaz info. I'll probably slag off loads of people, too. It'll be packed full of great shots from the sets of our videos, gigs, rehearsals, interviews...you name it. It's all in there. So place your order up front kids, this book going to be a scorcher!" — Gorillaz bass-slayer Murdoc Nicalls

This stunning, full-colour hardback will be the most unique rock autobiography ever published. Gorillaz have always been as much about the visuals as they are about the music, and the autobiography will be a feast for the eyes.

Featuring brand new art from and designed by Jamie Hewlett, this is the full story of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs for the first time. Included will be their emailing with their motley crew of collaborators, from Ike Turner to Sean Ryder, and accounts of the gigs, the movie (for the first time), the videos and the website — including the low down on Kong Studios, their legendary HQ. It is an essential purchase for a legion of fans.

Synopsis:

The multiplatinum, multimedia sensation Gorillaz reveal all in their official, lavishly illustrated, no-holds-barred autobiography.

About the Author

Gorillaz are the charismatically vile Murdoc (bass), charming 2D (vocals), haunted hip-hop hardman Russel Hobbs (drums), and ten-year-old Japanese phenom Noodle (guitars), who showed up one day in a FedEx crate speaking no English but packing a mean karate kick, an unknown past, and undeniable talent.

The brainchild of musician Damon Albarn of the band Blur and comic-book innovator Jamie Hewlett, who was just named the 2006 Designer of the Year — the UK's most prestigious design prize — Gorillaz are (according to the Guinness World Records) the "World's Most Successful Virtual Band." They shot to fame in 2001 with their debut album Gorillaz, which sold more than 5 million copies worldwide. Their second album, 2005's Demon Days, produced a string of chart-topping singles, went double platinum in the United States, and has sold more than 6 million copies throughout the world.
