With the new album, ‘Cracker Island,’ now reaching new heights, it seems that many want to be part of what may be to come by the Gorillaz in the future. One person of which being Noel Gallagher. Noel recently gave a little nudge to Damon Albarn about working together.
Damon Albarn has reacted to Noel Gallagher’s praise and offer to work with Gorillaz again.
What’s odd about this is that Noel and Damon have been on the outs for a bit, or at least they really were on the outs for a very good deal of time when Damon was still very active with Blur. Of course, at the time, Noel would grill Blur on what seemed to be a nightly basis. I’m unsure if it’s a change of heart or if he sees the money that comes with the Gorillaz.
As reported by Radio X – Quizzed if he had any plans to work with the virtual band’s co-creator, he told Radio X’s Dan O’Connell: “Yeah, me and him get on great. I love his band. I know most of his band. The Gorillaz, it’s a cool thing to be involved with because you get to meet lots of really cool…I mean I met De La Soul at their gigs and Most Def and how he puts it all together is really quite incredible. You have a good time doing it.”
As Damon had stated previously, he’s not the one that gets the special acts on his albums. He has people reach out to them.
He added: “If he needs me, I’ll sprinkle a bit of Northern magic for him.”
Could this lead to a whole new era for Noel? It would be very neat to see if so.
“The last time I actually saw Noel was in Porto after the Champions League game and I was going to get my car and he was waiting for his car and he wasn’t particularly pleased to see me on that occasion,” he joked.
“But I mean, cor blimey, how our fortunes have changed in the interim,” added the diehard Chelsea fan. “I’m, sure he’d love to talk to me about football now.”
“I love Noel,” he added. “I love him. He’s great.”
