Fromage friends

Who would’ve thought it? 90s Brit pop rivals Blur and Oasis are going to bury the hatchet and make cheese. No, not the musical variety. Actual cheese! Alex James of Blur is a cheesy enthusiast with his own dairy farm producing delectable soft cheese. And apparently those Gallagher brothers love nothing more than a nice lump of the milk product.

Says Mr James: "From hard drugs to soft cheese! That's me. From boozy, vegetarian vampire of the Groucho Club in London to rural sober family man. It's amazing, the friends you can make, just through cheese. People get very emotional about it." Yes, we’re sure some people do. We often weep at the thought of a hunk of good Stilton dripping with chutney…

The two bands want to work on a new cheese for next month’s Brits. Maybe they could make the awards out of cheese? Perfect, if a bit smelly. Mmmmmmmm…

So, the first time, surely, that a long-standing feud ended over the cheeseboard. Maybe they should invite Robbie Williams over. He could bring some crackers. On second thoughts, he’d probably bring the wine…
