Survey for dissertation on Gorillaz - appeal for interested fans

You may remember we featured an article by Lucy Scott-Galloway back in March called 'Reject False Icons - the Gorillaz and Postmodernism'. Now Lucy is drawing on the ideas in the article for her Masters dissertation, and is interested in hearing from Gorillaz fans about their feelings about the band. If you're interested in helping out, then the full list of questions can be seen by click 'Read More' below, or downloading them as a text file here (right click, save target as). Please send all completed questionaires to lucyeliza@hotmail.co.uk, not us, thanks!
