In the build up to Gorillaz Glasto headline slot and dull as drug water live showing with Lou Reed (heroin's a hell of a drug) I saw a T4/Aviva/something-or-other showing of their show earlier this year at the Roundhouse where they were described as the most successful animated band in the world...
who are they up against, really. All those other cartoon bands?
Well, my top 3 cartoon bands that aren't to Gorillaz are:
#3 - Josie & The Pussy Cats
Amazing opening theme lyrics: 'long tails and ears for hats'
#2 - The Archies
#1 M.C.Skat Kat
The cartoon cat, sorry, kat, from Paula Abdul's 'Opposites Attract' video who went on to release his own flop solo album and guest on a celebrity pro-recycling re-hash of 'Yakety-yak don't talk back' with Bugs Bunny and Ozzy Osbourne, Stevie Wonder & Pat Benatar. Now that's a career!
... and see the Yakety Yak vid for shocking 90's pop hell:
