Thanks for telling us about the problem. Dec rose, Matt 2D rated it it was amazing Shelves: This stunning, full-colour hardback will be the most unique rock autobiography ever published. May 31, Janitag rated it it was amazing Shelves: But in the end, I recommend this book to anyone that likes Gorillaz or the background of bands.

InAlbarn and Hewlett created a band that poked fun at the state of pop music and remained postmodern to its core. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Otherwise Murdoc’s put a curse on me. Feb 02, Xavfro rated it liked it Shelves: Featuring brand new art from and designed nook Jamie Hewlett, this is the full story of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs for the first time. If you’re a true Gorillaz fan, then you will love it, but you will have to go deeper into the history for the true story of the band, for this is the crude, funny, coincidential, deep, freaky, and artsy story of the band’s animated characters.


Apr 30, Joanna rated it really liked it Shelves: Rise of the Ogre is an autobiography about the virtual band Gorillazostensibly written by the four band-members in collaboration with actual Gorillaz musician and official scribe Cass Browne.

The book is funny and very well written, and the characters show tons of personality and the crazier side of me still wants to believe this virtual band isn’t so virtual as shown through their interviews. The book was a little difficult teh trek through at times and I found it occasionally somewhat boring because I don’t read autobiographies, but the entertaining characters and stories kept me going.

Rise of the Ogre – Wikipedia

This book is fantastic if you are a fan of the Gorillaz or visual novels in general. It’s all in there.

Granted, all this is done in a spirit of dry humor or are too cartoony to be realistic but may be deemed as crude by sensitive readers. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

But still a fun read. Oct 13, John Knowles rated it really liked it Shelves: Some landscape renderings can be dark in tone or content such as zombies, garbage, graffiti, alcohol, etc.

Gorillaz have always been as much about the visuals as they are about the music, and the autobiography will be a feast for the eyes. This book was beyond awesome!


The book also has interviews with the original creators, Albarn and Hewlett and the animators, producers, technicians and contributors. Why did I read this? The three stars is based on what I did actually read.

Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre

The book details the life-stories of the band-members: The only thing I could have done less with is the constant Cockney take on everything- for us Yanks, somewhat hard to fathom occasionally.

I have no idea, other than I am a slavering Gorillaz fan, and at my age, too. Included will be their emailing with their motley crew of collaborators, from Ike Turner to Sean Ryder, and accounts of the gigs, the movie for the first timethe videos and the website – including the low down on Kong Studios, their legendary HQ.

The book is filled to the brim with beautiful artwork by Jamie Hewlett, and it provides a lot of background information on even the tinies The Gorillaz have been a favourite band of mine for a very long time and when I found this book, I was in heaven.

Oct 06, Jake Doyle rated it it was amazing.

In short this is a band autobiography and art book more less.
