Mark E. Smith comments about working with Gorillaz

There's an interview with Mark E. Smith, guest star on Gorillaz' track Glitter Freeze in the current issue (issue 50, Julian Casablancas cover) of the UK magazine Clash. Here is the Gorillaz extract:-

Outside of The Fall, you've just guested on the new Gorillaz album 'Plastic Beach'...
Yeah. I never related it to Blur. They just kept asking me and I was like 'I don't wanna do it,' then I thought 'Well, maybe they need some help.' I actually thought Gorillaz were some kiddie rap, like helping out Dizzee Rascal or something. I didn't realise it's a big thing, so I arrive at the studio limping, [Mark was recovering from a leg injury at the time], and...

...Damon Albarn was there?
Yeah. I walk in and there's all the stars of the universe there, people you're supposed to know. Domino [his record label] were crying, like, 'You've worked with Damon Albarn'. It's a very southern thing. Where I live in Manchester, Gorillaz mean jack shit, honestly. But down there Blur are like gods aren't they? It's alien to me.

Were you more of a fan of your fellow Lancastrians Oasis, then?
Yeah. Blur were doing a nancy Oasis thing. They were shite. My lads [in the band] are like, 'Who the fuck's Blur? Who the fuck's Oasis?' That's why I adore them. They're more into Motorhead. I think that's the best way.
