Olympic Gorrilaz

The dude who once told us he got his “head checked by a jumbo jet” is now producing work for the Olympics. WTF?

Damon Albarn sure has diversified his stock since deferring from a school of music that is as self parodying today as it was galvanizing a decade ago, Brit Pop. With his Gorillaz offsider Jamie Hewlett, Albarn has produced a 2 minute teaser for the upcoming Olympics in China. The animation featuring Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy of “Journey To The West” fame is aptly titled “Journey To The East”.
