Gorillaz have been missed

Cartoon rock side-project Gorillaz are no more, Damon Albarn has announced to a world that probably won't be that upset.

It's down to the rising cost of pencils or something.

There will be one last hurrah, with the sort-of-band signed up to do some sort of half-conceived big screen movie. Which is a valid artistic project in its own right, and not merely Albarn calculating that it presents his best chance of getting an oscar.

(Which does remind us: whatever did happen to Albarn the act-or? It's ten years since his first proper role - in Face, of course - which was supposed to add a second string to his bow. Hollywood not noticeably beaten a path to the door since, then?)

My only worry here is that they consider doing "solo" projects... oh dear... we could be in trouble...

I wonder if Gorillaz would do a reunion special 20 years from now...

Does this mean he can resurrect the flipside of Gorillaz, Deltron 3030? They released surely one of the most underrated albums ever and then...nothing. At least Gorillaz had a couple of albums.
