Blur's "Quoasis" Accusations Finally Ring True





Ever since 1995 and the initiation of the Great Britpop Wars between Blur and Oasis, the latter has been accused of sounding like late '60s traditional rockers Status Quo. Now, the two bands are finally working together. Kinda. Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has lent vocals to the title track of the new Death In Vegas album, Scorpio Rising. That track also has writing credit given to Francis Rossi of Status Quo, as it samples the band's hit "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" (later covered by Santa Cruz indie rockers Camper Van Beethoven. The album dropped in the UK two weeks ago, but no word yet as to domestic release, so if you want to check out the "collaboration," you'll have to go visit your favorite import store for the time being.
