Murdoc On The Wire


February 1, 2012

Transmissions from Murdoc.

After nearly a year underground (or lurking in the dark corners of who-knows-where), Gorillaz’s Murdoc Niccals has resurfaced and is again wreaking havoc — this time over the airwaves. It seems in fact that, following a dramatic exit from Gorillaz’s Plastic Beach HQ, the miserable despot Murdoc Niccals has created yet another pirate radio station and is now sending transmissions from a brand new mystery location. What’s this all about? Tune in to the weekly broadcasts to find out.


On The AirWednesday, February 29th 2012 : Transmission 8 – Despite his best goonish attempts, Murdoc is unable to keep his video under wraps any longer. As the exclusive 3 Artists, 1 Song video for DoYaThing debuts, Murdoc pours himself a tot, kicks up his mucky feet, and prepares to bask in the glory of his newest Gorillaz spawn.


On The AirMonday, February 27th 2012 : Transmission 7 – Lest we forget, Murdoc takes to the wire to remind all you kiddie-winkles of the treat he’s got up his slimy sleeves. The countdown continues to the release of the exclusive 3 Artists, 1 Song “DoYaThing” video, coming 2.29.12.


On The AirFriday, February 24th 2012 : Transmission 6 – Murdoc rounds up both friends and foes at his undisclosed Gorillaz HQ for the making of Gorillaz’s exclusive DoYaThing video, featuring Andre 3000 and James Murphy. And in typical Murdoc style, he dangles the tasty bits in front of our noses as we wait with jowls a watering.


On The AirThursday, February 23rd 2012 : Transmission 5 – Murdoc’s day has come. Up at the crack of dawn and full of glee, Murdoc breaks the news of the exclusive 3 Artists, 1 Song track DoYaThing, available for free download today.


On The AirTuesday, February 14th 2012 : Transmission 4 – With word out about the upcoming 3 Artists, 1 Song track release, Murdoc’s home has become more than he bargained for. Listen in for Murdoc’s plans to turn his mucky situation into something else entirely.


On The AirThursday, February 9th 2012 : Transmission 3 – After weeks of keeping mum (due to the threats, of course), the elusive Murdoc Niccals hits the airwaves to unleash the names of his victims, ahem, artists featured on the upcoming 3 Artists, 1 Song track “DoYaThing”.


On The AirMonday, February 6th 2012 : Transmission 2 – After establishing his new radio station, Gorillaz’s Murdoc Niccals now dangles a tasty little tidbit. Supposedly it has something to do with the upcoming Converse 3 Artists, 1 Song track release, but who can be sure with Murdoc?


On The AirWednesday, February 1st 2012 : Transmission 1 – Murdoc breaks his radio silence to let the kiddie-winkles know that he’s created some sort of new monster. Tune in and let good old Uncle Murdoc fill your boots with this sticky bit of news.

  • Tamsin Parker God, Murdoc. First you abandoned 2D when he got eaten by a whale, as well as Russel and Noodle, who as you may remember were under attack from pirates, and now you're getting 2D to work for you again? I don't know what to say. I think it's good that you're so proactive and trying to get the band back together again, but I still can't forgive you for your abusive behaviour and your only-too-recent act of dirty cowardice. Anyway, an air kiss right back at you, Phil Cornwell. Tue Feb 21, 2012
