Today is a great day to be a Britpop fan. NME reports that Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn, frontmen of Oasis and Blur, respectively, might be working on a new project together.

This is a big deal, and not just because Oasis and Blur were two of the most popular British bands of the '90s. Longtime fans of either band will recall the "Battle of Britpop", a 1995 chart war that stemmed from both bands releasing singles on the same day. This rivalry between Oasis' Gallagher brothers and Blur's Albarn spiraled out of control, leading to "two decades of Britpop animosity," according to NME.

Lately though, things have warmed up between Albarn and Noel, the elder Gallagher brother. The two performed together at a charity gig in London's Royal Albert Hall earlier this year (see above photo), and in July, Blur bassist Alex James was quoted saying that Albarn and Gallagher were "like best mates now."

James went further in an interview before Blur's set at Hungary's Sziget Festival last Friday, revealing that Albarn and Gallagher are now "working together on a lot of stuff." Though James was unclear about exactly what he meant by "stuff," his interview seemingly put the final nail in the coffin of the two bands' rivalry, surely a relief for anyone tired of the multitude of NME articles that pit "Blur Vs Oasis."
