Damon Albarn has revealed he thinks that Blur's 'Country House' and Oasis' 'Roll With It' were "both shit".

Writing in a RedditAMA for Dazed Digital, Albarn revealed that he now thinks that both tracks were not any good.
Albarn recently told NME that making an album with Noel Gallagher is a "distinct possibility" in future.
"I still see Noel from time to time. We text a bit," Albarn said. When asked if the pair would be making a record together, he replied, "I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future. But, as yet we haven't really talked about it, although…"

Damon Albarn released his debut solo album 'Everyday Robots' yesterday (April 28).
