Kano speaks of admiration for Gorillaz

UK rap artist Kano (info on wikipedia here) has spoken of his admiration for Gorillaz in a new interview.

Kano says: "I was a big fan of Damon's, especially that first Gorillaz album. I came up in the garage scene and they did a lot of garage remixes of 'Clint Eastwood', so I kind of followed that from there and when the second album came out I was like "Woah", I was so into that. When I met the man and we got speaking I hadn't even realised he'd lived where I come from, that's why he's really reggae influenced and why I could identify with a lot of the stuff on the second Gorillaz album, and I think that's what really attracted me to working with him.".
