I don't go apeshit over Gorilllaz but it's hard to deny their conceptual genius. Rise of the Ogre is an autobiography about the virtual band Gorillaz, detailing the life-stories of the fictional band-members: Murdoc Niccals, 2D, Russel Hobbs and Noodle. Ostensibly written by the four band-members in collaboration with (actual) Gorillaz musician and official scribe Cass Browne, the book is over 300 pages long and it's extensively illistrated with new art by Jamie Hewlet. Apparently Damon Albarn (Gorillaz co-creator and musical director, also formerly of Blur) has a new band in the works called The Good The Bad And The Queen which you can preview them over tah-tha myphase.
