If it was meant for Gorillaz I'm guessing Damon would have demoed it between 1998-2000. Then demoed it again around 2002 for Blur.
yes, im 100% sure that ambulance was meant to gorillaz record (but i think demo ideas came after 2000)remember, at first damon didn't want to record think tank

So you're saying there could be 'Demo Ideas' for each track on Think Tank?

Wow. Yet they barely gave us any Think Tank rarities in the 21 box set. I can only imagine what other stuff is in the vaults.

It would be nice to hear the Crazy Beat version without the quacks.

but nutter and piano shouldnt be release! very, very weak tracks. they said they recorded about 30 tracks.

14 from album, 2 from fc singles, 5bsides + 1 from box-sir elton-together is 22. so maybe 5-8 still exist somewhere.

but the most what i want to hear are tracks from 2004/2005 session. still don't understand why they didn't release them!

Exactly, what happened to that EP stuff? Or did some of it get recycled at some point into Think Tank and/or Damon solo work maybe?

Well the EP was after the TT sessions and from what the interviews said especially in the Blurb, they were rock/punk songs that used simple 3 chord guitar playing to make allowances for Damon's lack of guitar skills, not a bad thing I'd have said, an EP full of WGAFOY songs would have suited me :)

Anyone ever heard of it?

No!!! Ahahahahaha! :D
If you read the setlist on the link, above "El Mañana", it is written that after the song (before they played "Broken"), a bit of a new song was performed with the choir!
