If you think this means the duo are calling it quits, that’s what their publcist says. While no reason was officially given I wonder if the video is giving us the answer. I could never tell you which one was Thomas Bangalter and which was Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (I’m admittedly not one of the die-hard fans but I’m a bit above casual), but I wonder if the one that blew up just got tired of the gig or even just the “one day we mysteriously transformed into robots” gimmick and wanted to move on to something new. I guess we’ll never find out what the reason was for their mecha-transformation. Now that I think of it the Gorillaz had a deeper back story, but I’d rather listen to Daft Punk any time.
I don’t know what their future holds but I hope it’s something amazing. Thanks for the awesome music, guys!
