Interviewer: What more could you ask for?

Murdoc: A decent guitarist.

Interviewer: And the only weak link appeared to be Paula, the guitar player.

Murdoc: I think we can skip this.

Interviewer: Who's Paula?

Murdoc: It doesn't matter, it's history.

Interviewer: No, come on. Who's Paula?

Murdoc: (Sigh) Paula was a girl who played guitar for us early on. And 2-D was seeing her.

2-D: My girlfriend.

Murdoc: Whatever. But't quite really work out with the band.

Interviewer: After Russel joined the band, Paula, 2-D's girlfriend of the time was drafted in to play guitar. But one night Russel found Murdoc and Paula up to no good in the toilets at Kong.

Murdoc: Cubicle number 3, I seem to remember.

Interviewer: For this gross act of disloyalty, Russel broke Murdoc's nose a further five times, giving us a grand total of eight fractures that afflict his mangled hooter today.

Paula Cracker, Gorillaz' first guitarist tells her side of the story:

Paula: Well, I'd been seeing Stu-Pot for about two months. I played a bit guitar and use to buy strings at the shop he worked in. He was very sweet. A bit thick though. He said that he was gonna be a singer in this band yeah? They didn't have a name yet. And I thought "yeah heard it all before". Still, I went to Kong Studios to check them out and played with them. But when I saw Murdoc with his thick, greasy hair, green teeth and yellow skin I thought "Ohhh! He's the one for me."

Interviewer: Paula becomes more increasingly animated. Maybe she's on some sort of medication.

Paula: Oh! He's such a dandy. Like Errol Flynn or something. But after that thing in the toilets, they kicked me out, but I never heard from Murdoc again, and my purse was gone. Since then, they became this big massive band so I guess I was pleased for them. But it also makes me kinda make me feel, uh.. sick.. in the head, like I want to hurt people. They try to write me off the story of Gorillaz. But I was the guitarist way before that Noodle. I've got half of mind to hunt them down, and start screwing with their heads.

Interviewer: I think she is on medication. 2-D seems hurt.

2-D: I can't believe you did that, Murdoc.

Murdoc: I did you a favour mate. She was a rubbish-looking bird. Seriously, she looked like Grayson Parry or something. You're best shot of her.

2-D (quitely): ...It's just the principal.

Murdoc: Look, she was depressingly ugly. Easily enough to put you off your dinner. You should thank me. *strange 2-D noise* Anyhow, on with the show...
