It was entertaining as a whole. Jan 16, Immano rated it liked it Shelves: He just keeps getting better and better.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The illustrations are beautiful and once again I was blown away by the talent that is Jamie Hewlett.
Oct 13, John Knowles rated it really liked it Shelves: Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett started this project of a “virtual band” who will be selling records and influencing pop-culture, paving their way through the new sensation called the Internet. The book also tells the fictional accounts of the virtual band members, their origins and how they met, their bizarre gogillaz hilarious adventures.
Gorillaz has been my favorite band since I was nine, it’s kind of a funny story, since after listening to two gorillaz songs but not remembering the name I had hunted to find more songs by the band who’s name I couldn’t remember, I did find them, by finding the video feel good inc, however it disturbed my eight or nine year old self, and I didn’t think it was the right band funny enough that feel good inc riise now become one of my favorites by gorillaz.
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. Damon Albarn left and Jamie Hewlett right: The book is filled to the brim with beautiful artwork by Jamie Hewlett, and it provides a lot of background information on even the tiniest things related to the band and their origins.
Narrated goorillaz the way of a biography-slash-interview, at times way too heavy-handedly to be effective, it works all the same and probably precisely because of it, because it’s in tune with the characters themselves.
I think a main strength in this book is the silliness behind it, and the idea to just roll with it. Feb 21, Gorlilaz rated it liked it Shelves: Definitely a worthwhile read for any fan of the band!
I love how it depicts Murdoc and how each person came ogge be. The book is filled to the brim with beautiful artwork by Jamie Hewlett, and it provides a lot of background information on even the tinies The Gorillaz have been a favourite band of mine for a very long time and when I found this book, I was in heaven.
I wont reveal anymore about the book, but obok a fan who wants more of the gorillaz, or just a better look gorillz the characters, this is a must have. Having been a Gorillaz fan since the release of the Demon Days album during my freshman year of high school, Hhe was mesmerized by the unique twist of alternative rock, hip-hop and rap, which hid a subliminal storyline within the beautifully animated music videos.
You have to adore the band to enjoy this book. Zombies, tequila, spirits, hellhole, Demon Days, ghosts, demonic possessions and 2D’s cockney accent – what more would you need? Oct 31, Dana J.
Jul 23, Writer’s Relief rated it really liked it. At some points, I wasn’t even sure what I was laughing about. The book also has interviews with the original creators, Albarn and Hewlett and the animators, producers, technicians and contributors.
Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre
For less than enthusiastic fans, Rise of the Ogre still has something to offer in terms of a loose story and dynamic artwork. And if you whack someone over the head with it, they’re really gonna feel it!
Attacking other cultures, other nations, is a self-destructive act. Music autobiographies Fictional history Gorillaz books Riverhead Books books. But to fans already familiar with the music, members, and canon, I strongly suggest looking into this.
Because of the uniqueness of the band not only in concept but also in sound, I gained a greater appreciation for the sheer amount of work, influence, and experimentation goes into Gorillaz music and fantastically weird music videos. It is an essential purchase for a legion of fans. This book was beyond awesome!
Whether you’re a long time fan of Gorillaz or just having discovered them, this ogrw a excellent book to read if you’re willing to know about about the character’s backstories, the inte best biography written. It reads like an actual transcript albeit far stranger. Jul 17, Jneny rated it really liked it.
Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre by Gorillaz
Nothing is sure other than Murdoc has completely lost his mind. So place your order up front kids, this book going to be a scorcher!
Still I liked hte. Looking for beautiful books? If you don’t know a single thing about Gorillaz, you probably wont like this Most singers and bands nowadays always seem to focus on appearances rather than putting out good music.
His style is colorful, crisp, and lively.
