10:01am: Damon Gorillaz interview from Kiss FM - listen to the mp3
Garwulf sends the news that Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn called into Kiss FM yesterday to be interviewed about Gorillaz. You can listen again to the interview by going here and clicking on the mp3 link. You can also read our transcript by clicking 'Read More' below. Let's just say the interview doesn't go too well!

UPDATE 04/04/06: It seems that the radio show that did the interview (the 'Bobby Bones' show) seriously pissed off the record company. According to a statement on their website here:- "After our crappy interview with the Gorillaz last week, we got in a little bit of trouble with the record label". They also link Gorillaz-Unofficial.com which is nice! Greetings to all the visiting KISS FM listeners. Just to point out one thing, the majority of regular users of this site are from the US. So there is certainly no overall anti-US bias here. Thanks.

10:05am: Harlem Apollo Theater, 2 April, post-show (UPDATE #2: reviews, pictures and video!)
Gorillaz played to a sell-out crowd in New York City last night at Harlem's Apollo Theater. The setlist was the whole of the Demon Days album in order for the main set, and 'Hong Kong' as the only encore song. MF Doom and Dennis Hopper were not there, the rest of the guest stars were. The back screen for displaying the visuals did not work, and Damon appeared at the front of the stage to apologise for this, before the performance began.

UPDATE 20:53 GMT:- Steven Glekel sends the VIDEO of Murdoc and 2D's sketch before the show (It's a completely different routine to the one they did at Manchester). To watch it, click 'Read More' below. Steven has also very kindly sent two pictures from the night, one of Damon apologising to the crowd, and another outside the venue. Many thanks!
