I really dig the new gorillaz video. and their commentary on it is good too.


The brand new video for 'Feel Good Inc' is here now for you to
see. The band have been very busy making it - 2D and Murdoc speak out
for the first time about excess and hedonism, exactly what the video's
about and what really happened on the shoot...

2D: I think Gorillaz built a tower around themselves that they
couldn't get out of. Of excess and hedonism. The video is based on this
feeling. For a while it was great to be on the inside, but the party's
got out of hand. It' s become like the Last days of
Pompeii….a…er…Sodding Gommorah. The Feelgood Inc Tower represents
this. The palace we built has become a prison. In the video I'm just
waking up from this year-long hedonists dream, and I realise that
maybe… the fruits of success have turned sour.

Noodle is outside of the Tower, in the pale morning-after
light, sitting on the edge of this floating island. And you can see she
knows what's happening. But people have to wake up to it themselves. So
that's what the video is about; being trapped by the things you make,
and realising everyone else is caught up in it. Using it. Just…they
need their party to continue, to keep this thing afloat. The Tower of

Murdoc: Apart from the obvious thing, which is my gyrating
hips, the coolest thing about the video would be the the hydraulics on
this gig. Just for the windmill section alone cost about 3.5 million
pounds. That's sterling. We had to buy a small island, make a mold of
it and then scrape out all the insides. When that was done we filled
the whole thing full of helium. Using the motor from the windmill we
managed to get the thing to float, but it was an absolute bugger.
