Gorillaz craft a single that examines war and soldiers, reminiscent of Jedi Mind Tricks' Uncommon Valor in its first-person look at the battlefield. Dirty Harry was the first Gorillaz release of phase two when it appeared as a limited 12" white label vinyl promo with no band name or record label logo (catalog number KONG01). The song revisits some of the themes of earlier single Clint Eastwood, like violence and masculinity (indeed, it’s named after one of Eastwood’s better-known films).
Dirty Harry is the fifth track and third single on Gorillaz' 2005 album "Demon Days". It was the first actual release of phase two when it appeared as a limited 12" white label vinyl promo with no band name or record label logo (catalog number 'KONG01') in January 2005. Initial copies were released in the UK but by early February plenty had made their way over to the US.
Gorillaz is the eponymous debut studio album by virtual band Gorillaz. It was released on 26 March 2001 in the United Kingdom by Parlophone and in the United States by Virgin Records. The album reached number three in the UK and number fourteen in the US, and has sold over seven million copies worldwide
The words "Dirty Harry" do not appear in the lyrics, but the reference to Clint Eastwood's gun-toting vigilante character implies that this is the way much of the world sees Bush. He recalled to Q magazine June 2008 about recording the album: "At first he (Damon Albarn) didn't want me to do the whole Gorillaz album or anything. He was curious about me, to see whether we could work together. The first track we did was 'Dirty Harry,' which was a really raw, stripped-down demo. I had this vision of choirs and Gregorian chants and rapping, and Damon was like, 'Well, go ahead and do it!' But Damon's Songwriting is the strongest part of that record, not any fancy production.
