Have you any idea why they didn't use 'The Fall' as phase 4? Like you'd think with each album came the next phase? Any clue?
Sometimes I wonder that too. Every band member has their own album in each phase: their first album (phase 1) is by Russel, Demon Days (phase 2) is by Noodle, and Plastic Beach (phase 3) is by Murdoc. Also, each phase is centered around a certain band member. Like how phase 3 was about Murdoc and 2D trapped on an island. But either way, Plastic Beach was mostly about Murdoc losing his mind. It would make sense if The Fall was part of phase 4, but I guess Damon and Jamie never thought that Gorillaz would come back with another phase. Maybe in this new phase, it’ll be more about 2D. But I also think that it’s going to be about everyone in the band.
