The Scottish band originally produced a T-shirt two years ago with the words ‘Blur: Are Shite’, which reportedly enraged Albarn at the time. Now, in an exclusive NME interview to appear next week, Mogwai have admitted that they considered marketing a follow-up with the slogan ‘Gorillaz: Even Worse’.
The band’s Stuart Braithwaite told NME.COM: “Now I don’t think we should even bother with Gorillaz. In the scheme of things it’s totally irrelevant.” But he added that Albarn was a “c—“, commenting “if Paul McCartney and Damon did a record, it would implode with pure evil.”
Meanwhile, Gorillaz have confirmed the details of their folow-up to the hit ‘Clint Eastwood’ single. ’19-2000′ is released through Parlophone on June 25.
A tour has also been confirmed, starting at: La Cigalle, Paris (June 22)
Dublin The Olympia, (24)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (27)
Birmingham Academy (28)
Manchester Academy (29)
