8:27am: News round-up: Tree Of Beauty from Gorillaz song,GBQ show on Rainbow Warriror, Remix, Africa Express
The news and developments from over the last few days...

Tree Of Beauty / Underwater Rotate connection
Thanks to an anonymous submitter on the G-U main page for this one. As previously reported by G-U last summer at the time of the Dr.Dee shows, Dr.Dee song Tree Of Beauty started life as a Gorillaz song, and now the Gorillaz connection can be revealed in more detail. Compare Tree Of Beauty, particularly 1:19 to 1:52 on Youtube here with the Gorillaz teaser clip Underwater Rotate here. (Apple Carts, as previously reported by G-U, also started life as a Gorillaz song based on clips in the Making Of Plastic Beach documentary. These are possibly the only two songs from the Plastic Beach sessions in Dr.Dee, but that has not been 100% confirmed at this time).
