During this period, the British press seized upon a supposed rivalry between Oasis and Britpop band Blur . Previously, Oasis did not associate themselves with the Britpop movement and were not invited to perform on the BBC's "Britpop Now" programme introduced by Blur singer Damon Albarn. On 14 August 1995, Blur and Oasis released new singles on the same day, setting up " The Battle of Britpop " that dominated the national news. Blur's " Country House " outsold Oasis' " Roll with It " 274,000 copies to 216,000 during the week. [25] Oasis' management came up with several reasons for this, claiming "Country House" sold more because it was less expensive (£ vs £) and because there were two different versions of "Country House" with different B-sides forcing serious fans to buy two copies. [26] An alternative explanation given at the time by Creation was that there were problems associated with the barcode on the "Roll with It" single case, which did not record all sales. [27] Noel Gallagher told The Observer in September that he hoped Damon Albarn and Alex James of Blur would "catch AIDS and die", which caused a media furore. [28] He subsequently apologised for this in a formal letter to various publications. [29]
