On the Gorillaz’s most recent album Plastic Beach, mastermind Damon Albarn pushes his post-human cartoon rock saga to the next level. After burning down the group’s headquarters, Kong Studios, Murdoc escaped and set up camp on a floating island of plastic trash, where he recorded the new disc. His life was far from drama-free, though — he pocketed the insurance money from the fire, and has been dodging assassins who have been pursuing him ever since.
