So I guess
http://consequenceofsound.net/2012/04/damon-albarn-speaks-on-bleak-future-of-blur-and-gorillaz/
This happened.

In that interview Damon Albarn says hes done with Blur because the other guys "Are no longer daily musicians" and its hard to connect. As for Gorillaz? "Consequently, Albarn said he and Hewlett are no longer on speaking terms."

Well this sucks ass. I love me Gorillaz and have always enjoyed Blur. So lets talk about good music, weird inner storylines and cool music videos

    I liked some of The Good, the Bad, and the Queen.

    I have not dug on his recent music though so I am okay with all of this.

    The old stuff is still there/good

    blur has been inactive for years and the news of gorillaz becoming defunct is like a year old or something

    thank you for the update, though

    Didn't Gorillaz just do a mini album or something?

    I am actually crying right now

    I knew this would happen because of Blur's inactivity and the fact that Gorillaz was pretty much done

    But now it's official, and shit

    this is a shame but honestly i didn't expect there to be any more gorillaz albums and i don't give two shits about blur so i think i'll be fine.

    Gorillaz had a handful of songs I really liked but most of it was just super weird and I couldn't listen to it.

    HOLY FUCK I just now realized the same guy who sings Song 2 is also the Gorillaz vocalist.

    one of the weird side effects of being a 90s kid with internet is when all the 80s kids reveal the bands of music you forgot was everywhere when you just hit double digits

    like, i dunno, pre-youtube i just assumed music came from the lyricbeast or something

    That whole album (blur) was weird. One minute Blur are a pretty wanky pop band with a half dozen decent songs, and then they release this brilliant album and Damon Albarn is suddenly a musician.

    I still think they were replaced by pod people.

    This is the last Gorillaz video ever, apparently, and it's nice to see the tradition of damon getting completely upstaged by a guest rapper is alive and well. thank you 3 stacks

    I'm glad I saw them before they stopped doing stuff. I dunno though, haven't those two broken up and gotten back together.. like... five million times??

    Haven't they stayed in contact every one of those times?

    If they're not on speaking terms, I assume they had such a big falling out that this is a hiatus they shan't return from unfortunately.

  • KochikensKochikens Lovely-Cuddle-Blanket-Stephen-Fry-Awesomer Registered User regular
    I dunno, I mean, it sucks, but I would not be shocked if they got back together again.

    give it a year or two if damon albarn's solo stuff flops (it probably will, lets be honest here)
