John Lydon has branded Gorillaz "shit", saying Damon Albarn's band are not original enough. Lydon made his point in a video interview with NME shortly before taking to the stage at the Benicssim International Festival with Public Image Ltd. Watch the interview here. Lydon admitted he was feeling nervous ahead of his performance, and as a result did not want to dwell on other bands. "I really don't wanna talk about shit like the Gorillaz, you know what I mean?" he explained. "Come on, I'm the originator don't toss us with that." Lydon added: "I think there's less original talent now than 30 years ago. It's much more manufactured. And the shame is I opened so many doors for so many people and they've all foolishly slammed it behind them. so what you get now is a melange of shit." Thanks for the report to
