Old rivalries never die as Damon talks Oasis

Damon Albarn has commented for the first time about the current problems plaguing Oasis.

During an exclusive interview with NME last Friday (September 10), Damon said: “Well, I just think it was a shame when they started appearing in Hello and OK! magazines. For me, that just seemed such a fucking betrayal of what they were all about.

“So I don’t know, where do you go from there? It’s not really my business. I just think it’s just not very cool being in OK! magazine.”


Despite the main Oasis vs Blur battles being almost five years ago – a bitter simmering rivalry has remained. Noel Gallagher – ostensibly talking about the departure of Bonehead – recently said: “I don’t fall out with people easily. Apart from that knobhead out of Blur. He looks like a dustbin man these days but good luck to him.”
