The British like sex to be a naughty thing. I think it’s because we have an asexual Queen.

It’s extraordinary that 16 year olds thrust their breasts at me and ask me to sign them. But they do.

Damon Albarn

I don’t care who I snog, girls or boys. It’s not a sexual thing at all, it’s more of a header.

We’ve said nothing in any of our interviews – we’re probably the only band in history to do that. Dave just says nothing. Alex says nothing in an Alex way. Graham says nothing in a very negative way. I say nothing in a roundabout way. We do it on purpose because there is very little to say; it’s all about feeling. Our generation doesn’t need a spokesman.

Damon Albarn

Graham has obsessions. At the moment it’s American hardcore. They last from six to eight months, and it’s very hard for him to see anything else.

Damon Albarn

We were young, good looking and in the best band in the world.

I was always a workaholic, but I just didn’t have any work.

I couldn’t fit in with the lads at school. I was the weirdo. Post-stroke-gay. I always got called gay.

Damon Albarn

I once owned up to flooding the toilets when it wasn’t me. I got the slipper from the teacher for it, too. No one else would own up and we weren’t allowed to go home, so I just owned up. I can’t remember whether it was for anyone in particular, or whether it was a random act of chivalry – or just play stupidity.

My grandad said ‘Smile and the world will smile with you.’
