Gorillaz Break-Up Not New

I ran across this article over at The Village Voice where writer, Tom Breihan, discusses the break-up of the animated super group, Gorillaz.

Now, the piece is dated for the 25th of April, and this has been pretty comon knowledge for, like, 4 or 5 months, if I'm not mistaken. The Gorillaz autobiography, Rise of the Ogre, was supposed to be the closing bookend on what was a wild and crazy near-decade of Gorillaz music and madness. I distinctly remember reading press on the book saying that the band was finished as of album #2 and the book is one last hurrah for the fans.

I checked the wiki entry on the group and it seems a little more vague on the whole notion of the band breaking up, as it were, but with Albarn having moved on to his new pet project, The Good, The Bad, and The Queen, one could say the writing was on the wall.

Anyway, there was no grand point to making this post other than to complain about Breihan's lack of spidey-sense when it comes to nailing the current events and to join in with the disgruntled comment crowd from the Voice site and say 'poo' for the ill informed and churlish comments he made regarding the band, their releases, and Albarn.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
