Damon Albarn Recalls Blur’s Legendary Oasis Rivalry: ‘I Was Never Gonna Beat Noel’

damon-albarn-BlurDamon Albarn has discussed his band Blur’s legendary rivalry with fellow Britpop giants Oasis in the 1990s.

Speaking to The Guardian, he also referred to the class war that the public identified between his band – who were from the South and perceived as middle-class – and the Northern, working class Oasis.

“The whole class thing was just insane,” he said. “But we were young and we let ourselves get caught up in it. And the competitiveness was ridiculous for a while, but, you know, I was never gonna beat Noel in a war of words.

Nowadays, they’re on much better terms.

“I still see Noel from time to time. We text a bit,” he admitted.

“I can imagine [working together] being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future. But, as yet we haven’t really talked about it, although… OK we have a little bit.

“We’re talking. It’s not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he’s doing his thing. He’s finishing a new record. I’ve got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something.”

He added: “You know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once.”
