The Great Metal Standoff – Oasis vs Blur w/The Sports Desk

Oasis v Blur WEB

For this festive season. Jason & Imran have gone a bit silly and pushed heavy metal aside to reignite the old Oasis vs Blur Britpop rivalry. It’s the 1994 releases of each band being examined in track-by-track, Oasis’ debut Definitely Maybe and Blur’s third album Parklife. This battle was made possible by collaborating with Sam Menhennet from SYN’s flagship sports show The Sports Desk where you will learn when he isn’t spotted in the grandstand at the game, he can be found fully immersed in the magical and rad Rock n Roll, and Britpop is his specialty.

Follow The Sports Desk on SYN every Wednesday at 5PM and Friday at 9AM on 90.7FM, DAB+, or online at, and click here for all their podcasts
Plus stay up to date on Facebook & Instagram
Also, hear Sam’s previous work on Rockology, his music show from 2017-2020. Keep an eye out for updates on that show
