They’ve long since buried the hatchet but it’s still a bizarre sight to see Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher performing side by side, and it helps when the song is an absolute banger.

We all know the back story – back in the mid 1990s, Blur and Oasis were engaged in the almightiest of ding-dongs at the top of the music charts and, after Noel once said that he hoped Albarn and Alex James would “catch AIDS and die,” you’d never have thought that one day we’d be watching them on stage together.

On Friday night, Albarn and the elder Gallagher performed ‘We Got The Power’ from the new Gorillaz album Humanz, and what starts off as a bit of a plodder turns into something incredible as it gathers pace.

Liam Gallagher recently labelled his brother a “massive girl” for working with his former adversary.

“That gobs***e out of Blur might have turned Noel Gallagher into a massive girl but believe you me next time I see him there’s gonna be war,” he tweeted.

And there was more, before Liam went back to flogging Beady Eye memorabilia at the nearest car boot sale.
