"Imagine a city where graffiti wasn't illegal, a city where everybody drew whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it's wet. “ - Banksy

it was bloody cold.

dirty harry

kids with guns
kids with guns
taking over
but it won't be long...

"ex speed freak. personal hygiene problem. kiddie frightener. shoplifter. heavy smoker." - murdoc.

finally. the wait it over. i honestly couldn't believe it when i found out. the elusive, mysterious, and fucking fantastic Gorillaz are coming to nz in december. hell, i've never even seen a real picture of them, only the comic book characters that make up this "virtual band" - 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs.
the band started in 1998 and their first album 'Gorillaz' came out in 2001 followed by 'demon days' in 2005. from those two they sold over 20 million albums.
that's a helluva lot. these guys are really good. i've listened to them for the past six years and somehow i'm not sick of them.
sososo. tickets go on sale 9.00am friday 6th of august aka tomorrow yo and they're playing in auckland at the vector arena. sadly not wellington...

and not only are the Gorillaz playing, but also Bashy, De La Soul, Mick Jones, & Paul Simmons (The Clash), Kano, Little Dragon, Mos Def, National Orchestra for Arabic Music, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Shaun Ryder (Happy Mondays), and Bobby Womack.
what a fab ass line up.


ps. tuesday 21st of december guys. that's willy bangers buurffday.
