Alone on a Friday night? .. Not exactly...
Ahhh, thank you for this! :D
Rate them: 8/10. I know Del is a super minor character who hasn't come up in ages (barring that amazing recent Insta post), but I think he was just so chaotic and FUN, plus his raps gave a lot to some seriously good songs. I'll always consider him a bigger influence on the band than Paula
Sexuality headcanon: Bi! I don't "kin" as the kids say, but this dude loves ladies and dudes with good vibes. He leans more towards women (result of internalized homophobia perhaps?), but Russel was really his soulmate.
Gender headcanon: Can you be considered cis if you're a ghost? I'm joking of course, but yeah, Del is a cis man. But he embraces Russel's gender fluidity when he spends a few years haunting him.
Favorite moment/random trivia: Perhaps when we got this picture for Phase 4 and people though the blue lighting was a hint that Del was coming back?
But also, my favorite moment is probably in the G-Bitez when he's betting real money with a ten-year-old Noodle. I love to hc that he was just this zany presence who popped out whenever Russel was sleeping or zoned out.
Random Headcanon: Hates Murdoc. Hates him! Always muttering in Russel's head about how he should just deck him in the face. If he wasn't incorporeal, Del would 100% wake up and choose violence every damn day in Kong. Bonus headcanon: I think Russ is the one with impulse control and Del is responsible for like 85% of the expensive, random shit Russel has purchased.
Opinion: He's just THE BEST. I'd love to hear his voice again in Gorillaz, or see him somehow return to the band in the future. Even if that isn't likely to happen, I just think he's neat and funny. More Del content, please!
Thanks @chai-selfship for bringing this to my attention, but what could this mean? I’m excited!!
