Gorillaz Rock The Colbert Nation

Various blogs are abuzz, understandably, today about last night's Gorillaz interview and live performance of "Stylo" last night on The Colbert Report. They noted Damon Albern and the featured appearance of Bobby Womack, and they lamented the absence of Mos Def and the subliminal images of Jamie Hewlett's (left to right above) Noodle, 2-D, Russel Hobbs, 2-D and Murdoc Nicalls.

But why no mention of these two blokes?

Yep, that's ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon and guitarist Mick Jones. (The two played with Gorillaz last weekend at Coachella and are featured guests on the band's latest release, Plastic Beach.) Granted, last night both were sporting caps right off a Gilligan's Island set, but they sure do know how to help pace the rhythm.
