A previously reported on Gorillaz-Unofficial, Murdoc today hosted a webchat on his official facebook profile (check it out on here. Murdoc took questions in via an online form and responded to select questions through a specially designed Facebook application. Murdoc accepted questions for about an hour (from approximately 5:07pm GMT) then stopped taking more questions but still answered questions for around half an hour.

Perhaps most significant of the responses was Murdoc's answer about Noodle. He commented: "After the first album Russel had this big mad breakdown. He had the spirit of Del exorcised out of him by the Grim Reaper. Which kind of sent him mental. He tried to record a solo album but then he was saying that all these demons were flying out the speakers trying to eat him. Everyone thought he’d just gone loopy. “Living in a basement with Ike Turner”. Turns out tho he was right. The Demons were real! You couldn’t really make it up. So next thing we know is after Noodle disappeared after The El Manana video incident, we hear this voice coming out of the basin basement room of Kong. Out of a radio. Turns out that when these demons couldn’t get hold of Russ, they grabbed Noodle instead. Dragged her downstairs, to Hades! So of course it fell to muggings here, (that’s me), to go on some epic Odysseus type journey into The Underworld to try and rescue her. It’s all tied up with contract I signed with Beelzebub that shoe-horned Gorillaz up the charts in the first place. He was cocked off about some late payment of my eternal soul, or something stupid.... Noodle been dragged to Hell. She can look after her self, but this one's too big for her on her own.
