Commercial releases

Lil' Dub Chefin was lifted for single release from Laika Come Home, the Gorillaz dub album remixed by the Spacemonkeyz, probably in an attempt to stimulate further interest in the album. Promos featuring the single as the lead track were circulated at the same time as full Laika Come Home promos and it was only slightly later that a full single release was decided upon. The release was promoted by a low budget video video which did not feature the Gorillaz (but did feature Gorillaz images).

Although the single made 'single of the week' on Phil Jupitus's 6Music show, it charted poorly and was not successful. However it offered fans the chance to get their hands on the catchy radio edit and the video on the CD. The release also contained a track that was not a Gorillaz track at all - 'Spacemonkeyz Theme' was written by the Spacemonkeyz and a couple of rappers, and performed by them too, with no involvement of Gorillaz. This release, like the album from which it was taken, is officially referred to as a release by 'Gorillaz Versus Spacemonkeyz'.

"Lil' Dub Chefin'" is a re-worked version of "M1 A1".

The single was a UK-only release.

This track is the 2nd of four songs to be played during a BBC Radio 1 session with Damon Albarn and Spacemonkeyz.
