I’ve been a Gorillaz fan since the first time I saw the Clint Eastwood video back when it was released. But it wasn’t until the past year that the scope of the project has started to dawn on me and trigger thoughts on the relationship between music and images, virtual bodies, and representations of celebrity.

Luckily my friend Gary has a radio show called Exploding Head Movies on CiTR 101.9 FM that focuses on music in movies and he was willing to let me geek out on virtual bands on air. The title of our show was “Showtime, Synergy!” and it was episode #41 of his show. One off from 42! That would have been magical.

Here’s the list of what we played:

Gorillaz – Superfast Jellyfish

The Archies – Sugar, Sugar

Josie and the Pussycats – Every Beat of My Heart

Josie and the Pussycats – 3 Small Words

The Misfits – Outta My Way

Jem and the Holograms – Only the Beginning

Deathklok – Hatredcopter

Deathklok – Face Fisted

Alvin and the Chipmunks – Woolly Bully

Fat Albert and the Junkyard Band – Don’t Go Telling A Lie

Prozzak – Strange Disease

Prozzak – It Sucks to be You

Gorillaz – Sweepstakes
