Jamie comments on future of Gorillaz at Monkey NYC event

Damon and Jamie's opera Monkey is having a run in New York City from July 6 to July 28. All ticketing and event information is available through the Facebook page here.

Yesterday Jamie made a personal appearance at the Lincoln Center to promote the show, and Gorillaz fan TwoDent23 was there, recording Jamie's comment about the future of Gorillaz and passing it on to us.

Jamie said: ""There's also a five years gap between the albums because they take a long time to do and- and they're very exhausting and when you're finished you feel like you need to go do other stuff. So Damon's touring with Blur- hes doing a world tour with Blur at the moment and then they're working on a new album so there isn't really time for him, and I'm doing other stuff as well. So I think it's, um, we'll come back to it when the time's right. But also the music industry's changed so much since we started doing Gorillaz. There's no money- in the industry so you know you get these amazing new bands, like the Stripes from Ireland, kind of fourteen years old, you know, the best rhythm blues guitarist you've ever seen. Age fourteen, make songs and film it in their bedroom. It doesn't cost anything, and so Gorillaz is kind of expensive. It's expensive to do because it's animated. ...(the interviewer mentions how they cant age, they can reunite whenever)... So there's plenty of time basically."

Not unexpected, but glad to hear its not perminantly off the cards. If anything, I think the changing face of the music industry might inspire some interesting innovations. Though if they still went with some of the more expensive things they were playing with, like the peppers ghost holograms, those have come on in leaps and bounds since Gorillaz first did it. Just look at the Vocaloid live concerts.

Looking forward to seeing Gorillaz fit into a newer age of entertainment. :3

Not sure if anyone follows Jamie's Instagram, but he's recently been posting (new, I think) images of Gorillaz characters on a regular basis. He posted one of Murdoc in a WW1 bunker just 20 minutes ago. Should we read into this, or is Jamie just bored?

Uh-huh... Sure Gorillaz will be back. Eventually. Jamie and Damon have been giving us that kind of hope since 2007. Has anything happened? No. Gorillaz have turned into a bunch of rotten bananas. A comeback? Impossible. The characters sank so much, the only possible meeting would be in the cemetery... in their own graves. Let's face it, Gorillaz will never come back. It's a dead matter. And they'll keep giving us false hopes.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog
that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
was hoping maybe you would have some experience
with something like this. Please let me know if you run
into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

You could add the "fuck you" widget or the "go fuck yourself" one. Both suit you.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

You think it's complex because you're stupid. Go fuck yourself, in your extremely broad ass.
