Gorillaz limited release Strange Folks boxed set is re-imaged and self curated packaged set of the Gorillaz music.
The virtual band is as interested in character and story development as they are creating sound. Each character (Murdoc, 2D, Noodle, Russel) has an distinct individual personality but collectively they share in a similar low brow way of thinking. The music has been curated into four 7 inch vinyls. One for each of the characters. Illustrations, lettering style, and spot colors were designed in partnership with each character.
Murdoc: agressive, loud, violent
2D: Slower, somber,
Russel: Chill, smooth, rhythmic
Noodle: Techy, fast paced,
Fans can now sit down and listen to each character individually, hear their personality, experience them as an individual story.
An artist / lyric book takes the reader through each character's story, who they are, what part of darkness they represent, and their calling card song.
