Fans of ’90s Brit-pop, brace yourselves: Blur’s Damon Albarn and Oasis’ Noel Gallagher performed together Sunday night. The two former rivals collaborated for a worthy cause, the birthday of Clash bassist Paul Simonon — who’s worked with Albarn on post-Blur projects The Good, the Bad & the Queen, and Gorillaz.

Albarn and Gallagher reportedly played a set packed with Gorillaz and Clash songs and were joined onstage by the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde. The two rockers previously performed together at a 2013 charity gig in London.

Both men had busy years in 2015, with Albarn reuniting Blur and putting out an album with the group, and Gallagher releasing a solo effort of his own. Another thing they had in common? A mutual distaste for Adele.

Check out a brief clip of Albarn and Gallagher performing the Gorillaz song “DARE” below.
