About this deal

At the front of the book, there is a ‘Demon Disclaimer’ stating the information is not all true, ‘especially the stuff Murdoc says’. J'ai acheté le livre en état "Neuf, je l'ai reçu avec une petite marque de Cutter sur le-devant la couverture, des marques de colles sur lesquels se sont déposés de la poussière, je trouve ça juste dommage qu'il y ait ses quelques petits défauts. Get the accompanying DVD Slowboat to Hades and the new vinyl figures from Kid Robot out now as well if you're a die hard fan like meself! The book explores their origins, their loves and hates, they're issues, victories, writing lyrics, creating videos, collaborating (with the ppl that actually took part in creating the band), photo shoots, romances, affairs, hauntings etc, arguing and discussing every thing while showing pictures of them every step of the way. 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.

The front cover of the book, when flipped sideways, is a silhouette of Murdoc Niccals' pet raven 'Cortez'. Very well-preserved, light wear to jacket edges and corners a little bumped due to storage otherwise VG bright and unmarked.

Even if you haven't paid much attention to Gorillaz (or if you have no idea what, exactly, they are), I still strongly recommend getting this book.

You discover so many things about the band through a funny, well-written story and the illustrations are fabulous. Thank you for preserving this excellent book - I have many great memories of checking this out from the library in high school over and over again and using it to piece together the lore behind a band I loved. Initially iTunes exclusive, one part was released every week for four weeks beginning December 5th 2006.My only wish is that they would release the book with added info, since Plastic Beach came out afterwards.

As a long time fan of Gorillaz, I enjoy watching, listening, and reading anything they come up with.While they could have gone and made a quick small book with existing artwork, they laboured in creating a genesis of a band showcasing every little minute detail in their lives to the present. It has the back stories of all the members and how they came together, and glimpses of the possible future of the band. surface tear to lower front edge of DJ, a little surface rubbing wear and discoloration to edge and top of spine of DJ, some rubbing and light scratches to jacket, internally VG and unmarked. The book blends fact and fiction throughout, interspersing commentary from the band members with actual quotes from their creators, collaborators and critics. As far as I can tell, this at least gets all the content right, even if the experience of leafing through that beautiful hardcover is lost.

Featuring brand new art from and designed by Jamie Hewlett, this is the full story of Murdoc, 2-D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs for the first time. Signed by Cass and Hewel, with the original fake library pouch~~VG+/VG 1st ed 2006 hardback, unclipped DJ. It is, absurdly, the fictional autobiography of a virtual band, with fabulous graphic artwork and comical interviews. It covers the band from 2000 and their first EP, Tomorrow Comes Today through their 2006 tour ending at the Apollo Theater. I bought a used version a whole 7 years after it was published for a total of 28 pounds which is a bargain considered this book sells for more than 70 in some instances.Bits like this help you enjoy this book twice as much as if you would only see it as one or the other. The original idea for the book was to be a compilation of all press interviews with Gorillaz from phases one and two. A community-maintained environment where you can find or share information about everything regarding the virtual band Gorillaz. If it won't get re-published (which I hope it will) with the addition of Plastic Beach story this may turn into quite the collectors artifact!
