Gorillaz' bass-weilding nasty face Murdoc, he of two dimensions and erect nips, will deliver an alternative to the Queen's Christmas speech to literally some people, as he sends his festive regards to (mobile phone company) 3 customers across the country. Providing they can get a signal.
You've probably already read about this in the paper, but it's a slow day, so...
"We've all had so many 'ups and down' over the last year with toxic vapour clouds, earthquakes, face transplants, floods in Glastonbury and the end of the old Routemaster buses.
"But it's not all good news. On the bad side, we've had new music from James Blunt - who needs Valium? - Westlife, and more films from Harry Potter."So it really does look like we're just one step closer to the apocalypse, eh?"
The character goes on to spout all kinds of crap about giant human mice and 2006 actually being pretty good. Nah. Unless we win the World Cup, of course.
The speech will be exclusive to 3 customers until January 1st, when it'll be made available through the band's website.
