Once bitter enemies now collaborators, the band leaders of Oasis and Blur respectively, Noel and Damon are also apparently standing at the same view point on Liam Gallagher. Noel Gallagher appears on the Gorillaz album Humanz and during a recent interview also bonded over the other Gallagher and his buffoonish actions.
Firstly, Damon Albarn had a word about the former Oasis Lead singer, Liam Gallagher…
So you immediately thought to call Noel Gallagher and ask him to sing on it?
In a sort of lighthearted way, I’d promised Noel he could be on this record. He was always like, “I want to be on the next Gorillaz record,” and I was like, “Sure.” I thought it might be cute, the idea of us singing about the power to love each other. Of course, no one’s asked Liam what he thinks about the song yet. No doubt he’d have a fantastic one-liner about what a bunch of fucking knobheads we are.
Liam liked the most recent Blur album.
Yeah, but The Magic Whip didn’t have his brother and I singing about loving each other.
Then Noel had his turn….
Now that you’ve sung on a Gorillaz track, will Damon repay the favor and sing on one of your albums?
Well, he was supposed to play on my new record, but at the time I was recording, he was finishing the Gorillaz record and didn’t have the time. Hopefully next time. I’d like to get him to play melodica on something, which is what he was going to do for me on this record.
Damon wondered what Liam would think about you two singing about loving each other.
Listen, nobody gives a fuck what Liam thinks about anything.
