The Portacabin outside of the Kong Studios cemetery near the end of Phase 1


The Portacabin near the end of Phase 2

The Portacabin (also known as the Police Portacabin) is a portable building/trailer deployed by the Essex police in order to monitor Kong Studios during the absence of the Gorillaz between Phase 1 and 2. The Portacabin was later taken down by Noodle on November 25th, 2004. Near the final months of Phase 2, the burning wreckage of the Portacabin could be seen outside of the studio. The cause of the incident is still unknown.


  • The Portacabin has a tendency to appear whenever a phase of the Gorillaz is nearing its end. Whether there is a reason or simply coincidence remains unknown.
