Dirty Harry (Schtung Chinese New Year Remix)

A Gorillaz remix commissioned most likely by Gorillaz' record company, for the Chinese New Year in early 2006. Around the same time, limited edition prints with Gorillaz and a new year's chinese greeting on them were produced (using existing Gorillaz images). The remix first appeared on an official, but obscure, Virgin records promo CD that has been spotted occasionally on ebay. It was also put up as a free download from the official Gorillaz fansite on 16th February 2006. Schtung are a Singapore-based company that mainly make music for adverts.
