Noodle is the guitarist and female vocalist in the Gorillaz. She joined the Gorillaz when they (presumably Murdoc) put an ad out for a guitarist, and Noodle arrived in a Fed-ex box. At first she could only speak Japanese and very few words of English. However, during the bands down-time in November 2003, Noodle went back to her home country and her amnesia was alleviated. She discovered she knew English fluently and was one of 23 children in a ‘super soldier’ project; thusly, she was a master of weapons, many languages, and musical instruments (specifically the guitar). Mr. Kyuzo headed the project and shipped Noodle to England so she may enjoy success. When she returned she began immediately working on the Demon Days album.
