Damon Albarn Says Blur's 'Country House' And Oasis' 'Roll With It' Were 'Both Shit'














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

The two tracks went head-to-head in the UK Official Singles Chart in August 1995 – in a chart battle which has now become a symbol of the two bands' rivalry in the Britpop years. Blur ultimately hit the Number One spot.

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…"

Albarn continued: "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…you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once."

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

Damon Albarn will play a string of live dates to mark the album's release. Damon Albarn will play:

Noel Gallagher: 'I'll Reunite Oasis For Half A Billion Pounds"













Noel Gallagher has joked he would reform Oasis for £500 million – or 500 million condoms.

The singer made the comments when appearing on Talksport last night (April 28), as reported by Digital Spy.

Asked about the speculation over an Oasis reunion, Gallagher said: "I was in the newsagent the other day when the story broke and the Daily Star said, 'Oasis to get back together for £500 million', which is half a billion."

I'd do it for half a billion anything: Yorkshire Tea bags, condoms, Pot Noodles.

Rumours of a Gallagher brothers reunion began to spread after Liam Gallagher tweeted the letters O A S I S and a further tweet which read "OASIS LG" last Thursday night (April 24). Bookmakers Paddy Power and Ladbrokes then suspended betting on the possibility of the band reforming and headlining Glastonbury, where the final headliner is yet to be revealed.

However, Ex Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs told NME Gallagher's tweets may have been posted simply because the former bandmates went out for a drink together. Asked what Gallagher's tweets could have meant, Bonehead said: "Probably the fact that I texted him going, ‘Meet me in the beer garden’. That probably rattled his cage. Maybe that. I don’t know though, because I meet him every fucking month. Maybe he’s just reminiscing."

Damon Albarn On Oasis: "I Was Never Gonna Beat Noel In A War Of Words"














Blur frontman describes class rivalry between the two bands as "insane".

Damon Albarn has said that while Oasis and Blur were always rivals during their Britpop heyday, Noel Gallagher held the upper hand in the press.

He also discussed the division that many fans saw between northern, working class Oasis and southern, middle class Blur.

Speaking in an interview with The Guardian, the Blur frontman said: "The whole class thing was just insane," says Albarn, growing suddenly animated even after all these years. "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."

The pair have recently become friends and collaborators, and Albarn recently told NME that making an album with 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…"

Albarn continued: "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.

Noel Gallagher Rules Out Oasis Glasto Re-Union














Noel Gallagher says there is more chance of him and his ex-wife Meg Matthews getting back together than Oasis reforming to play Glastonbury this summer.

Andy Goldstein of talkSPORT had speculated on the chances of a reunion yesterday, tweeting: "I just text Noel asking about the chance of reforming . . . his reply "There's more chance of me and my ex-wife getting back together" So no."

Official denial also came from Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis who also ruled out an Oasis appearance at Worthy Farm. A fan had asked Eavis to "Please deny that Oasis are playing Glastonbury before tomorrow's ticket resale" to which Eavis replied, "Oasis aren't playing this year."

Liam Gallagher had sent fans into a frenzy of speculation this week with a series of cryptic tweets about his old band, which seemed to suggest they were reforming to play Glastonbury.

Liam And Noel Gallagher Back On Speaking Terms?














Noel and Liam Gallagher are back on speaking terms.

The two feuding brothers and former Oasis band mates - who famously fell out backstage at a show in Paris in 2009 - are said to be slowly reconciling and it is seen as a ''baby step'' towards an eventual reunion for the group.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''The mudslinging has stopped but it's very much baby steps for the two as Noel wants to release his second solo record at the end of the year and tour that in 2015.

''Really that leaves 2016 open for an Oasis comeback - it really doesn't seem likely that it would be this year.''

There has been speculation the Britpop icons could be set for a reunion after Liam individually wrote a letter of the band's name every half an hour on Twitter, but his former Oasis and Beady Eye band mate Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs played down the rumors.

Asking what sparked his tweets, he recently said: ''Probably the fact that I texted him going, 'Meet me in the beer garden'.

''That probably rattled his cage. Maybe that. I don't know though, because I meet him every (expletive) month. Maybe he's just reminiscing.''

The musician then took to his own Twitter account to spell out the word ''PUB''.

Emily Eavis: Oasis Not Playing Glastonbury














Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has tweeted to confirm that Oasis are not playing Glastonbury this year.

Bookies had suspended bets on the band playing after Liam Gallagher sent a cryptic series of tweets, using letters to spell out the name of his former band.

This year's Saturday headliner still hasn't been announced.

It's 20 years since the release of Oasis' debut album Definitely Maybe.

Eavis confirmed the band wouldn't be appearing in a simple tweet, responding to someone asking her directly.

Gallagher's tweet could have been linked to the fact he was pictured this week with Oasis band mate Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs.

The pair apparently had a drink together, with Bonehead tweeting the word 'pub' in a similar style to Liam's message.

Arcade Fire and Kasabian are the headliners for the Friday and Sunday nights of the festival, held in Somerset at the end of June.

The Black Keys, Dolly Parton and Lily Allen are some of the other acts performing over the weekend.

Oasis To Reunite? Bookies Suspend Betting On Band Playing Glastonbury














Two bookmakers suspend betting on the group playing Glastonbury after several cryptic messages cause a storm on Twitter.

A series of cryptic tweets from former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has provoked a frenzy of speculation the band could reform.

He spelled out the band's name in a series of five messages on Twitter on Thursday night.

Gallagher followed this up with another tweet that simply said: "Oasis LG."

Many fans took the tweets as evidence the group is getting back together, and the messages have since between retweeted tens of thousands of times.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes and Paddy Power have suspended betting on the band headlining Glastonbury as a result.

Oasis, which included Liam's brother Noel on lead guitar and vocals, enjoyed worldwide success before an acrimonious split in 2009.

Noel quit after an altercation with Liam, bringing to an end one of the most famous and successful partnerships in British rock history.

It is almost 20 years since the release of the band's debut album, Definitely Maybe, which went straight to number one.

Last year, Liam said he would be willing to "bury the hatchet" and get back together to mark the anniversary.

On This Day In Oasis History...















"Some Might Say" is a song by British rock band Oasis and was released on the 24th April 1995.

The song was written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was the first single to be released from their definitive second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory ? in 1995, and provided the band with their first #1 in the UK Singles Chart.

















The track was apparently inspired by the Small Faces and/or T-Rex. It was the last Oasis track to feature original drummer Tony McCarroll, who was asked to leave the band before the main recording sessions for (What's the Story) Morning Glory ? when tensions arose between McCarroll and the Gallagher brothers. The rest of the tracks on the album feature Alan White on drums.

The sleeve artwork, shot at Cromford railway station in Derbyshire, England, features art director Brian Cannon's father with wheelbarrow and his mother with mop. Also pictured are Matthew Sankey, Cannon's aide and Carla Knox, barmaid of his local pub. Liam Gallagher can be seen on the bridge whilst Noel can be viewed with a watering can. Cannon himself rates this piece amongst his greatest works.

The planned promo video for the song was canceled due to Liam not turning up for the shoot. Instead, a makeshift video was created using footage from the "Cigarettes & Alcohol" and US "Supersonic" videos.

B-sides
Aside from the title song, the single boasts some of Oasis' finest B-sides, all of which were deemed worthy to grace the critically acclaimed Masterplan album. "Talk Tonight", is one of many acoustic B-side tracks sung by Noel, and was, at the time, the most vulnerable song he had attempted. It was inspired by the near-breakup of the band in Los Angeles in autumn 1994, when Noel walked out without telling anyone and headed for San Francisco.

The B-side "Acquiesce" was released as part of the Stop the Clocks EP in promotion their compilation album, Stop the Clocks.

In an interview promoting the compilation album, Stop the Clocks, Noel stated that "Some Might Say" is the "archetypical Oasis song' and 'defines what Oasis is". Noel added later in the interview that along with "Some Might Say", its b-side, "Acquiesce", was also the song that defined Oasis.

The song also appears on Stop the Clocks, as do two of the b-sides. Suprisingly, this means that the "Some Might Say" single contains the fourth largest number of tracks to appear on Stop the Clocks of any Oasis release (after Definitely Maybe, Morning Glory and The Masterplan). Therefore, more songs from this single ended up on Stop the Clocks than Don't Believe the Truth (2 songs), Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, Heathen Chemistry (1 song each) and Be Here Now (no songs from this album appear on Stop the Clocks).

"Some Might Say" is a playable track in both Guitar Hero World Tour and The European version of Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades.
