Gorillaz news round-up

A few little things to report as we start the new year:-

Firstly, on Gorillaz.com the counter in the Hellhole that previously counted down to Murdoc's birthday last year, can now be seen counting down again. Many thanks to all of you who wrote in about this and especially to German Shake who supplied the calculation that the countdown is due to end on 10th February at 05:12:19 British time. Given the apparent randomness of the time and the fact that this is the start of a new year, it may be that the countdown is simply a result of a glitch in the programming of the counter.

Secondly, there are a few new-ish items of Gorillaz clothing out now (girls' shirts) and a new patch set, and new army-style caps. Check them out on the official Gorillaz shop here. (thanks to Kicchan for this news).

Third, this month's Q music magazine has a cover feature on "The 500 Greatest Lost Tracks", the magazine's choice of best tracks that aren't found on bands' regular albums. Gorillaz' Ghost Train is included in the list. You can see the scan by clicking here.

Finally thinwhite_duke sends a transcript of the recent Gorillaz Times Podcast interview. You can download the transcript here (right click, save target as), or click 'Read More' below to read an unformatted version.
