Damon Albarn Admits Upset Over Boyzone

The man-band beat Gorillaz to number one earlier this year…

Damon Albarn has admitted he was “f***ing gutted” that GorillazPlastic Beach album was beaten to number one by Boyzone.
 
The third LP by the cartoon band was released back in March, but failed to hit the top spot after the Irish manband’s comeback disc unexpectedly sold more.
 
Albarn admitted: “I was a bit f**king gutted that Plastic Beach only got to two in America.  And I was obviously a bit gutted that it only got to two in England. Against f**king Boyzone!
 
“But at the end of the day it’s OK. I’ve had a lot of successful number twos over the years.”
 
Gorillaz will next release a non-Plastic Beach single called Doncamatic. The band plus assorted guests- likely to include Kano, Bashy, Daley and De La Soul- will also play UK arena dates next month.
