20 years ago on this very day, an album dropped that would change the letter Z forever. Dillon and Trevor are back to re-review Gorillaz' self-titled debut, and this time they've brought along the mad genious behind Gorillaz vs. Log S. to join in on the fun. Gorillaz with the beat, y'all!
Dillon and Trevor gather together to review a Gorillaz collaborator album for the first time in over two years. Why? Because they are celebrating the life and mourning the passing of a one-of-kind, once-in-a-generation genius: the lyrical supervillain, MF DOOM. But before that, they'll crack open a few bottles of Hobbs Hot Sauce to try their hand at culinary criticism. Sure, Russel may know his way around a kick drum, but can he make a condiment with a kick?
Dillon and Trevor sit down with Humanz choir member and Circle of Friendz featured performer Brandon Markell Holmes to discuss the cherryade fountain, breakiing the rules, and taking off your clothes because you believe in your art.
Triple trouble! Trevor and Dillon sit down at the roundtable across from contest winner Alyssa Johnson (host of What a Concept!) to re-live the face-melting madness of Song Machine Live! Then the newly-formed trio rolls up their sleeves for a deep dive into Blur's landmark third LP, the Britpop generation-defining Parklife. How do you feel about getting one of the most jam-packed episodes in Hallelujah Monkeyz history? Because it gives me an ENORMOUS sense of well-being.
Having received the remaining episodes of Song Machine Season 1 far sooner than they’d ever anticipated, Dillon and Trevor take the fully assembled contraption for a test run. Plus, an exciting new contest! Don't miss your opportunity to guest star on a future episode of Hallelujah Monkeyz!
Dillon and Trevor are back to inject some momentary bliss into your year of misery and chaos! Listen as they fumble with technology, bid farewell to a legend, and dig in to four new Gorillaz songs and videos!

Dillon and Trevor tromp across sticky floors, shell out for overpriced refreshments, and cower under the unmerciful glow of those little flashlight wand thingies when Hallelujah Monkeyz goes to the cinema! Travel back to December when a global Gorillaz party went down in a theater near you, as the boys try to make sense of Denholm Hewlett's Phase 4 and 5 spanning documentary, Reject False Icons. And maybe, just maybe, you'll encounter some of the extended podcast family along the way...
It has been two long months since we left Dillon and Trevor in South Carolina and five long years since half of all life in the universe was extinguished in a snap. In that time society has completely destabilized. But from the soupy grey fog of defeat, hope emerges. Now this crack team of heroes will finally reassemble to give this wounded world what it so desperately needs: a podcast countdown ranking recent Damon Albarn albums and songs.
It's pledge drive time! Did you enjoy HM's recent live excursion to South Carolina? Well, it wouldn't have been possible without the donations of our cherished patreon donors! What's that? You'd like to pitch in a few dollars too? Well fortunately for you the Patreonkeyz Club is officially accepting new members -- and to celebrate, we're taking a beloved, exclusive, PREMIUM episode out from behind the paywall! Tune in for a sample of the high-quality entertainment you'll have access to when...
It was August 2018. A humid night in Charleston, South Carolina — Chucktown, the natives call it. The smell of cheap beer and the sound of Gorillaz filled the halls of the Pour House, one of the city’s many beloved music venues. Huddled in the corner with a tape recorder? The Hallelujah Monkeyz and local hero Maxton Stenstrom. Get ready to go bananas.
At long last Dillon and Trevor sit down with Gorillaz lore mastermind Cass Browne for an epic tumble down memory lane. They talk cancelled Gorillaz movies, where Phase 3 was going before it all came crashing down, and what goes into a Brompton cocktail. Truly an unforgettable episode. The cup that runneth over; return of the Ogre!
On a heartwarming and emotional episode, this week we talk to Noodle's voice actress, the delightful Haruka Kuroda! Learn about Gorillaz tour bus bathrooms, what Noodle's accent says about her personality, and what the hell was happening behind the scenes in phases 4 & 5. You're gonna fall in love with Haruka; she's the best.
This week, Dillon and Trevor are honored to have Simon Tong on the show to talk about Gorillaz, the Good, the Bad & the Queen, and more! But first they'll sit down with their reading spex and tall crimson candles to analyze, process and celebrate Damon's brand new Brexit record, "Merrie Land." Dillon even breaks down crying at one point while talking about fish, it's a wild ride.
Hallelujah Monkeyz never take leave, not even on All Hallows Eve! On this jam-packed Halloween special, Dillon and Trevor dissect the new single from the Good, the Bad & the Queen before sitting down for an incredible and candid chat with former Cibo Matto frontwoman and real live actual Noodle herself, Miho Hatori! Grab some cool shoeshine and come on in, but leave your dad outside!
The day of reckoning has come at last: join the Hallelujah Monkeyz live at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California as they venture deep into the heart of the Demon Dayz festival to bear witness to the grand finale of Gorillaz (for now, at least). Will the angels be in their favor once more? Or will the devils waiting around every overpriced lemonade stand, questionably-assembled amusement park ride, and skeletal gorilla effigy littering the Demon Dayz fairground spoil the...

FREETHESEA! This week on Hallelujah Monkeyz, Dillon and Trevor link up with the legendary Gorillaz-Unofficial to talk about an exciting new fan campaign, before getting a very special report from one of the band’s recent live shows. Then the boys take a seat at the round table for an in-depth discussion of the Happy Mondays’ “Pills ‘N’ Thrills and Bellyaches” — including a LANDMARK interview with Madchester icon and Gorillaz collaborator himself, Shaun Ryder! Hope you’re feeling lucky,...
At long last the time has come. As Damon Albarn prepares to see his animated band off for another decade or so with a few final exciting live shows, Dillon and Trevor sit down with a pair of guests that they’ve been meaning to speak with for quite some time: UK rap duo and Phase 1 Gorillaz collaborators Phi Life Cypher.
