Damon Albarn has invited Noel Gallagher to join him on his Africa Express trip when he reprises the project later this year, saying it would represent a ‘nice chance to collaborate’.
The pair, who were at the eye of the Nineties Britpop media storm, have enjoyed something of a reconciliation over recent months and now, when interviewed by Shortlist, Albarn has extended an invitation for Gallagher to be a part of the musical collective which last year involved the likes of Dan The Automator and Totally Extinct Dinosaurs.
“Well, why not?” Albarn replied when asked if he would like to work with Gallagher. “He should come on the Africa Express train in September. That’d be a nice chance to collaborate.”
“I never held anything against him, even right in the middle of it,” he continued on their infamous rivalry. “I just kind of admired them in a way; that they were better at handling it all than me. They didn’t seem to get too affected by the bullshit.”
