Gorillaz poster in NME this week

Previously we reported that this week's NME magazine would feature a Gorillaz art print ( see story here ) but the 27 Feb edition of NME was released today and it has a free Gorillaz poster instead, featuring the same image. The poster is not on the usual NME paper, but is glossy printed. The image is one that appears in Snoozer ( Snoozer scans news item still here, ) the one with the whale at the bottom and all 4 band members. The poster is in 4 x A4 size and is a pretty good way to get a good, cheap ( £2.30 is the price of the magazine) new Gorillaz poster!
