The Truce between Blur and Oasis Begins on Record Store Day

Posted April 1st, 2011 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

The longstanding Blur vs. Oasis battle will officially come to and end on this year’s Record Store Day when Liam Gallagher’s new band, Beady Eye, will release a cover of Blur’s “Country House,” the very song that went up against Oasis’ “Roll with It” in that infamous first week sales challenge back in 1995. Gallagher has even gone so far as to admit: “The chart battle was only a bit of a fucking laugh and secretly ‘Country House’ was always my favorite Blur song.” My my, how Mr. Gallagher has mellowed.
