It’ll be packed full of great shots from the sets of our videos, gigs, rehearsals, interviews Oct 31, Dana J. Ogrf book reveals the whole story and meaning of the band and songs including their origins and “lives” from the beginning to the aftermath of Demon Days. I’ll probably slag off loads of people, too. This book was sooooooo goooooood.

It’s ore in there. Since this was published inthe story only goes up to Phase Two, the time period of the Demon Days release and its aftermath, so nothing regarding Phase Three Plastic Beach or beyond is in here.

Discography Awards and nominations Rise of the Ogre Monkey: Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. Gorillaz have seriously impressed me with the levels that Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have gone to to NOT take credit for the band and to make the four characters seem real.

Jan 02, Infamous rated it liked it. Whether you’re a long time fan of Gorillaz or just having discovered them, this is a excellent book to read if you’re willing to know about about the character’s backstories, the interpretation of the songs, and the creative process of how the Gorillaz came around.


Refresh and try again. Rise of the Ogre has also been released as the world’s first audiobook singles. Gorillaz has been my favorite band since I was nine, it’s kind of a funny story, since after listening to two gorillaz songs but not remembering the name I had hunted to find more songs by the band who’s name I couldn’t remember, I did find them, by finding the video feel good inc, however it disturbed my eight or nine year old self, and I didn’t think it was the right band funny enough that feel good inc has now become one of my favorites by gorillaz.

For more information see www. It’s the biography of the fictional band Gorillaz.

Which is why they decided to pen a story about themselves. Oct 16, destiny rated it it was amazing. The musicians behind them are real. But, like most people who bokk reviewed this book, I loved every second of it.

Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre

Lastly, there is nothing overtly sexual but occasional crudities do pop up, including a few goofy anatomical renderings intended, again, for laughs. For a moment, I almost forgot all of this is completely fabricated.

Jan 21, Ben Blumenthal rated it it was amazing. For less than enthusiastic bopk, Rise of the Ogre still has something to offer in terms of a loose story and dynamic artwork.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. They are a work that is imperfect godillaz the make as much as in character, and there is a sense of the creators rightly being in this for their own satisfaction which kind of hurts the narrative; when you learn on the internet that they’ve taken time apart out of differences and that they’re sometimes tired of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russell, that is the reason, and similarly, the times when this book is a hit off are so because you want to treat them, you have been made to treat boook characters like characters, not masks, so the fact that dise can be pulled off disconcerts and feels like a deprivation.

If you don’t know a single thing about Gorillaz, you probably wont like this Most singers and bands nowadays always seem to focus on appearances rather than putting out good music. Probably more interesting to people who have heard of Gorillaz. The book also pays homage to many of the legendary stars that have worked on the first two records and reminisces on the many difficulties they had to put up with early on in the project for instance, live performances.


Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett started this project of a “virtual band” who will be selling records and influencing pop-culture, paving their way through the new sensation called the Internet.

Unfortunately, my phone screen is much too thhe to be bookk to read the damn thing without zooming in and out an infinite number of times.

Jamie Hewlett continues to amaze Book ratings by Goodreads. Gorillaz have always been as much about the boook as they are about the music, and the autobiography will be a feast for the eyes.

It was entertaining as a whole. But because the music is good and the characters are endearing, this is a good read, especially goriloaz by the appropriate soundtrack. This book is fantastic if you are a fan of the Gorillaz or visual novels in general.

This stunning, full-colour hardback will be the tue unique rock autobiography ever published. Fans of the Gorillaz.

Feb 02, Xavfro rated it liked it Shelves: If you like Gorillaz as a musical project and a multimedia I don’t know who said that.

Jul 23, S-Meh rated it it was amazing. Sort of like they’ve been stringing us along just to laugh in our faces, in typical Gorillaz fashion. Rise of the Ogre is definitely more of an art book as opposed to a book for reading. Apr 14, Rob rated it really liked it Shelves: But to fans already familiar with the music, members, and canon, I strongly suggest looking into this.

They “think” they’re real. Like a lot of other reviewers, I grew up listening to Gorillaz and enjoyed their music.
