Damon Albarn gets up close and personal to Noel Gallagher in Brit Awards 2012

Damon Albarn snuggled up to Noel Gallagher in the Brit Awards 2012 - on Feb 21st, Tuesday evening.

The two members of Britpop supergroups Blur and Oasis hugged it out on the red carpet, made their amends, reconciled their differences and  even suggested getting "drinks" together in the after-party.

In an NME February interview, Damon said "Yeah, we met up and I look forward to having a beer with him again. He has great charisma. And he didn't slag Liam off once!". He said he "didn't mind" Noel's solo album because "a big chunk of our history is the same".

Noel Gallagher called Damon as "mad as a box of frogs" a few weeks ago (Click to read full article) and said he would like to record with him rather than Coldplay's Chris Martin.

There has been some eventful happenings of that night, and these two weeks have been hectic and exciting. Blur has been compared to "drunkards" on the stage, but they thrilled many long time Blur fans who were happy to see them play. 

You win some, you lose some- but Blur's record sales went up significantly afterwards. On iTunes's top 10 rock hits, there were 4 Blur songs on, including Country House!  

Blur won 4 Brit Awards in 1995 for their album Parklife, which was hugely successful. Blur then battled it out with Oasis for UK No. 1 single the following year, with a release of their singles "Country House" and "Roll with It" on the same day. Blur won the battle, but Oasis sold more albums in the long run.

Damon Albarn also revealed that Blur were offered the Outstanding Contribution to Music award a few years ago, but "turned it down". The award went to Robbie Williams that year.

Funnily enough, 17 years later in 2012, Blur looked somewhat the same in the Brits stage!
