OASIS singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher is fuming after a fan mistook him for musical nemesis BLUR singer Damon Albarn.

The two bands have been bitter chart rivals since they released albums (WHAT'S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY? and The Great Escape within a month of each other in 1995.

Since then the two groups have enjoyed a war of words in the media - so Gallagher was stunned to be mistaken for Albarn, who also performs with animated dance act Gorillaz.

He explains, "This bloke said, 'I'm a massive fan. When's the next album out?' So I said, 'Some time next year.'

"He asked, 'Will it be with the band or with Gorillaz?'"
