Damon new interview with Irish Independent, mentions Gorillaz / MSN video interview / Sun interview

Irish Independent

Damon's asked about Gorillaz again, here's the extract (and it puts a halt to all these crazy 'Damon said Gorillaz could carry on without Jamie' articles that have cropped up over the last few days, based on what Damon said to Shortlist magazine, where he was basically only making the point that he made the music for the Gorillaz albums independently of the characters and storyline):-

"I think we've [Jamie and I] probably OD'ed on one another. Look it's the easiest thing to get going again. I do the music - he does the cartoons. We don't even need to talk to one another to do it. We don't even need to be on the same continent"
Irish Independent: But if you write all the music, surely you can do Gorillaz without Jamie?
"absolutely not," he answers, "I continue making music without Jamie obviously, but under the Gorillaz heading and using those characters? No way. That's something we did together so I wouldn't dream of doing it otherwise"
