Format: Taschenbuch
Die "Gorillaz" sind eine wirklich außergewöhnliche Band. Das Projekt,hinter dem der frühere Sänger der Gruppe "Blur" Damon Albarn und der britische Comiczeichner Jamie Hewlett("Tank Girl") stecken,war konzeptionell bei ihrem ersten Auftauchen 2001 mehr als ungewöhnlich und innovativ,und ist es noch. Mit Russell,Murdoc,Noodle und 2D erfanden sie einfach vier Bandmitglieder,die von Hewlett liebevoll grafisch in animierten Videos,Artikeln und sogar Live auf einer Leinwand umgesetzt wurden. Albarn kreiert die Musik dazu,und arbeitet dabei mit so vielen verschiedenen Musikern zusammen,wie es ihm überhaupt nur möglich ist.
Dieses amerikanische Buch bietet auf über 300 Seiten mit deutlich über 1000 Zeichnungen oder Fotomontagen alles für Fans,die gerne tiefer in die Materie eindringen würden.Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist grandios,die erdachten haarsträubenden Werdegänge der Band sind eine bissige Satire auf echte Bands und die Grafik ist absolut umwerfend. Das Buch ist die perfekte Ergänzung zu der Musik und den Video-DVDs der virtuellen Band und begeistert mich auf jeder Seite.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ein sehr schönes Buch mit sehr vielen bunten Bildern und einer schön grotesk erzählten Geschichte dieser Band. Und wer sich nicht an der englischen SPrache stört, erhält ein lohnendes Produkt.
Manko: Bei mir war der lose Umschlag minimal eingerissen, aber das Buch ist auch an einem Montag gekommen vermutlich hatte ich nur pech. Der schlichte Einband mit goldenem Aufdruck ist generell schöner :).
Von daher volle Punktzahl.

Dead or Alive the G-band will live forever! 13. November 2006
Von Arcadio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
There's really two ways of looking at this "biography". One from a pre-production, writing and illustrative standpoint. It's an amazing piece of work put together for what some call a "fictional band".

The second way is reading this as if it were all true. And believe me you will think it is. The band is so well written, you start to think, "Oh Murdoc is a great lyricist!" But then you think, wait, it's really Albarn who did the writing. Bits like this help you enjoy this book twice as much as if you would only see it as one or the other.

And I have to say this is quite a bio. 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. And I love it. I love little details like these. You fall in love with the band even more.

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.

And they really are meant as "photos" of them. They've taken this to a new level. Where once one could easily turn themselves into a cartoon for the sake of a video, a cartoon here has literally become real, solid, tangible. Do you really want to know that 3 people played the part of Russel? Not including his voice? Or that 3 or 4 ladies did the voice and vocals for Noodle while others played the guitar parts? I certainly really don't. While I know most of the "real" background info on them, I much rather prefer to believe them as real people.

But it's easy to see the underlying notes throughout the book give little hints and glimpses of the real story, with the real people that brought it together, but it's so subtle you'll kindly smile because they did this so well it doesn't interrupt the pacing of the book at all.

But remember you love Kermit the Frog and Gonzo for them, not because it's Jim Henson and Frank Oz moving them.

So if you're a fan of the Gorillaz, this is a must have. If you're a fan of great pop art, great storytelling, and great music this is a must have as well. The Gorillaz can't be considered the "best" animated band, because technically they really are the only animated band. But at the same time, they shouldn't be considered that either.

They're really just another band. They put on shows, they do interviews, they do photo shoots they get drunk, they get beat up etc. Because in the end the music is what it's all about. And watching them live and create is a luxury all fans and spectators get to have.

*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!*

'Rise' Above 12. November 2006
Von The Lippmans - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Gorillaz, the best animated band in the multicolor world, have released an awesome hardcover, 300 page, thick-enough-to-kill-someone-if-you-knocked-them-over-the-head book, written, of course, by themselves. 2D, Murdoc, Russel, and Noodle all have stuff to say, and they don't hold back on saying it (what do you expect? They're cartoons.) This lavishlly illustrated... er... photographed book is amazing. The drawings... er... photos show parts of Gorillaz you've never seen, and they all have wonderful things to show, tell, and elaborate on. It's a wonderful book.

Just about everything a Gorillaz fan could ask for. 7. Mai 2012
Von Armando N. Roman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Ever since I first saw their video for Clint Eastwood back in 2001, Gorillaz have fascinated me. Each video by them not only sparked my interest in drawing again, but it also got me interested in playing music again as well. I'm glad that 10+ years later, the 'gimmick' of having an animated band hasn't died, and they're still going strong. Rise of the Ogre here was one of those books that I figured would be around for a while since Gorillaz is a popular band, but no luck! This sucker went out of print fairly quickly. Fortunately, I have some good thrift stores around here, and my daughter spotted a copy and nabbed it. I'm glad she did, as this book is full of practically every piece of released artwork involving the band up until a little after Demon Days.

One thing I had fun doing when I first got into the band was tracking down magazines that featured Gorillaz, so I could read up on them and collect the artwork. It was blown away to find every piece I had from magazines featured here, and in much better resolution. You can see that for yourself in the video portion of this review. The bottom line is that if you're a big fan of Jamie Hewlett's work, you'll be in heaven here. But the real meat of the book is the story and interview portions. They REALLY go the extra mile with the whole 'fake band' thing and develop an insanely cool back story for the band with a lot of things I hadn't read up on until this. It's not just plain interviews either- the trademark Gorillaz tone and humor is here, with bits where Russel gives Murdoc dirty looks or straight-up threatens him. I wasn't expecting such a detailed story for the making of their music videos so this was a nice surprise. They never talk about the real members behind the characters either! This book is presented as the real story of Gorillaz, not Damon and the others who've contributed to their albums. And if you didn't know any better, you'd think that the band really did exist as they're presented here.

From amazing group shots, to the blueprints for Murdoc's bass. From pre-production music video sketches, to the band mingling with real-life people...this book is full of everything you could ever want from the band. I have zero complaints with the book, and you should find a copy quick before the prices shoot up even more. Even if you 'just' get a paperback copy, it's worth it. This is one of the few art books that I regularly take off my shelf and flip through for dozens of minutes at a time.

Gorillaz Rising 7. Dezember 2006
Von Kimberly Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Murdoc. Noodle. Russel. 2D. Their life stories. What more could you ask for? This is a must own for fans, and a good read for people looking for a good laugh. And the art work! I would just buy a book of that, without text. Jamie Hewlett's art helps the book a lot- it wouldn't be Gorillaz without some pictures, come on- but Cass Brown's amazing writing skills make it all the more worth while. He really brings the characters to life, especially Murdoc. The only draw back is that a lot of the text has been release previously as interviews. The new material really make up for it, however. Funny at times and serious the next, 'Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre' is a wonderful ride through the lives of this animated foursome.

AMAZING! 3. November 2006
Von D. Krug - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is so amazing! It has some of the best illustrations I have ever seen in any book, even comics. It also has some of the best stories and written material I have seen in a book in a long time. I am amazed at the rich backgrounds that the creators have made up for these characters. The first page in the book is about Murdoc when he was a little kid and his dad forced him to act like Pinnochio and sing "I've Got No Strings". This book is absolutely amazing! It's a must have.
