      APPLETONS REVEAL ALL


    BBC3 Documentary

    By Nicola Methven, TV Editor

    ONE of their rock star lovers doesn't read, they bicker constantly and they are still bitter about the break-up of their old band - welcome to the weird world of Appleton sisters.

    Natalie and Nicole, who split from All Saints two years ago, are to star in a warts-and-all documentary.

    The BBC film reveals intimate details of Nic's relationship with Oasis wildman Liam Gallagher - with whom she has a son Gene - and Nat's marriage to Prodigy star Liam Howlett.

    SISTERS: Natalie and Nicole

    And fans will see how the sisters clawed their way back to success with their first single, Fantasy, which went straight in at No2 in the charts in September.



    But perhaps the strangest moment in the programme comes when Nicole, 28, reveals how fiance Liam "can't read".

    As they discuss the Appletons' autobiography Together, she claims the Oasis singer needed help with the book's contents.

    She says: "I've read the book to Liam. He was nervous to read it because it makes his stomach turn a bit so I got a copy and started reading it to him.

    "He didn't want me to stop - Liam doesn't read you see, he can't read."

    But the singer, who recently lost two teeth in a bar brawl in Germany, is quick to correct her. "I can read," he says. "I just can't be bothered - I prefer to look at the pictures."

    But that's not the only embarrassing moment for Gallagher.

    Recalling her sister's wedding to Liam Howlett last summer, Nicole reveals how the Oasis singer forgot his own name while acting as the Prodigy star's best man.

    She says: "Liam had to sign the book and he was so nervous that he forgot how to spell his last name."

    Liam admits: "I just didn't know what my name was."

    Nicole and Natalie are obviously blissfully happy with their men - but admit to mistakes in the past. Giggling Nat says of her former boyfriend, TV star Jamie Theakston: "He was too tall. He was way too tall.

    "I suffered from very bad neck problems from being with Jamie. My neck got better when we broke up."

    As she speaks, however, Nicole stifles a yawn and pretends to fall asleep - sparking one of their legendary rows.

    Nic mutters: "Jamie being tall, that's not very interesting."

    So Natalie, 29, hits back: "Oh, let's hear all about Liam Gallagher. She really thinks we're really interested and that we care about the smallest little detail about Liam."

    And so it goes on. And on. And on.

    One person who has grown used to the arguments is Liam Gallagher, whose bust-ups with brother Noel are legendary.

    He moans to the camera: "Me and Noel are not a patch on these two. We fight and stuff but they're at it every five seconds.

    "Being in a band with your brothers and sisters, it is hard. Girls can get a lot more verbally. They throw insults at each other and that hurts more than me and our kid rolling around slapping each other.

    "I prefer the fighting than the insults that girls throw at each other. That's worse."

    Sitting together, Nicole and Liam talk about how they met - and Liam can't resist winding his fiancee up.

    He says: "It was in France. I was in a pub in Cannes and one of Nic's friends knew we were there and came down to meet us.

    "They wanted to meet us cos they'd never met a proper band before."

    Nicole laughs: "I wasn't your fan - you're full of s***.

    "It was more the other way round. He said to me, 'When I heard you were coming down I was really excited'. He even did his hair."
    The film, which was directed by the Appletons' eldest sister Lee, also reveals the lasting bitterness caused by the break-up of All Saints.

    It is clear the sisters haven't patched up their differences with former bandmates Shaznay Lewis and Melanie Blatt.

    Nicole says: "I did see them in my late stages of pregnancy and just after I gave birth to Gene - but there was nothing there.

    "It was just because they had to show that they did care but it wasn't real. It wasn't like a real friend coming to see me."

      Only One Critic at Rollingstone.com picks Oasis for TOP ALBUM CHART


    [24 Critics contributed to this years TOP ALBUMS OF 2002 CHART]

    "With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats . . ." -- leave it to an old Rolling Stones song to sum up 2002. Our cash flow was down, and, as the RollingStone.com critics' lists reflect, so were our spirits......


    LILY MOAYERI
    1. Chemical Brothers, Come With Us (Astralwerks): Returning to their dance-floor roots, the Chemical Brothers employ their perfectionist production skills in creating crisply bombastic beats and explosive, multi-textured rhythms.
    2. Coldplay, A Rush of Blood to the Head (Capitol): Chris Martin's sublime vocals soar over these painstakingly manicured tunes. The influence of Echo and the Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch is apparent and welcome, particularly on standouts "Clocks" and "Daylight."
    3. The Doves, The Last Broadcast (Capitol): Shoegazers of the world, don't despair. Doves wall of guitar effects are the backdrop for their shimmering, layered, simply beautiful melodies.
    4. High Contrast, True Colours (Hospital/Breakbeat Science): High Contrast's highly original, tunefully melodic tracks sound great at home when you play them low and call for rewind after rewind at drum 'n' bass events when played loud.
    5. Gomez, In Our Gun (Virgin): Getting stranger and more unidentifiable, on this gumbo of an album, Gomez's crusty blues are updated with smooth electronic brushes and dabbles in hip hop.
    6. Haven, Between the Senses (Virgin): Overflowing with confidence, brimming with sensitivity, going from power ballads to epic stormers, this is the album angst-ridden teenagers should be air-guitaring to in their bedrooms.
    7. Oasis, Heathen Chemistry (Epic): Although never coming close the greatness of their debut, this is somewhat of a return to form with straight-up, guitar-driven, rock & roll, plus the bonus of new songwriting blood.
    8. Roni Size, Touching Down (Full Cycle): Hard-hitting, aggressive, perfectly created, the jagged crunches of these pummeling numbers are balanced by funkiness and meant for the dance floor and nowhere else.
    9. South, From Here on In (Mo' Wax/Kinetic): Channeling the Stone Roses as much as DJ Shadow, this trio's psychedelic compositions revolve around swirling melodies and a plaintive vocal.
    10. Starsailor, Good Souls (Capitol): Falling just shy of overwrought, the torment here is balanced by upbeat melodies while the happy lyrics are tortured by distraught melodies.
    Reissue: Marc Bolan and T. Rex, 20th Century Boy -- The Ultimate Collection (Universal): Nothing ever gets near the perfection of T. Rex. None of the imitators have quite captured the elusive star quality or the unique take on glam rock. Stick with the innovator.

      Noel getting older.....


    NOEL GALLAGHER says he is no longer a rock ’n’ roll hellraiser – he needs afternoon naps. The Oasis ace confesses: “Getting older does my head in. It gets to 4pm and I think, ‘Can I get half-an-hour’s kip before dinner?’” Noel says age is affecting brother Liam, too: “Now he’s 30 the arrogance has all gone. He was even worried about releasing our next song because it’s the first track he’s written himself.”

      DAD FOR IT




    Oasis lads dote on kids

    SOME might say they're just a pair of mad-for-it Manchester louts, but our exclusive pictures show the soft and, er, cuddly side to the Oasis brothers.
    Liam and Noel Gallagher were captured on camera with their kids—and little 'un by little 'un, they're clearly doting dads.

    When Noel, 35, took a stroll in a north London park with daughter Anais and nanny Amber, he made sure the two-year-old was wrapped up warm.

    In her hat, scarf and cosy coat, Anais was well-covered...unlike mum Meg Mathews, who this month appeared on the cover of Elle, starkers apart from a pair of white fluffy boots.

    Meg, who split from Noel two years ago, has laughed off suggestions she wants to get back with him. She said: "It's total rubbish. Not a single word of it is true." But she has admitted she longs for a new man.

    She said: "The other weekend I got this little twang of how nice it would be to watch a movie while curled up with a man."

    Definitely maybe, Santa will be kind this Christmas...

    Meanwhile Liam, 30, was spotted out with Lennon, his three-year-old son by Patsy Kensit, and 18-month-old Gene, his boy by Nicole Appleton.

    While Liam kept an eye on the kids, Nicole was able to get on with the Christmas shopping in Hampstead, north London.

    Liam got his two front teeth punched out in a bar brawl in Germany earlier this month.

    But who needs teeth when you're such a sucker for your kids!

      Liam and Coogan


    According to www.ananova.com, Steve Coogan recently told US chat show host Conan O'Brian of his night of debauchery with Oasis wild man Liam Gallagher:

    'It was a very drunken night. We were in a posh converted castle and went down in the dungeon, where there was a bar. There was a woman who asked Liam 'Would you get up and sing for us?' He wouldn't but he told me to get up and sing, so I did Wind Beneath My Wings.'

    'The next thing I remember was waking up on top of the bed with him. I've felt a bit funny about it ever since.'

      Oasis Fail to place HC in top 50 Rock Album " Poll of Polls"




    Rock act Queens Of The Stone Age have topped a year-end poll of polls to land the definitive album of the year accolade.

    Their third album 'Songs For The Deaf' has done consistently well in numerous magazine "best of the year" lists.

    Its strong showing has put it at the top of the charts in a round-up of 2002's greatest albums.

    The inventive hard rock band are based around guitarist-singer Josh Homme and bassist Nick Oliveri.

    Runner-up was British act The Streets for debut release Original Pirate Material.

    Rock giants Oasis failed to make the top 50 with their fifth album Heathen Chemistry.

    HMV has produced the UK's only Poll of Polls, compiled from the individual Album of the Year listings in 12 of the country's leading music publications.

    Magazine polls which were analysed for the list include NME, Mojo, The Face and Muzik.

    The top ten are:

    1. Songs For The Deaf - Queens Of The Stone Age.

    2. Original Pirate Material - The Streets.

    3. Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots - Flaming Lips.

    4. A Little Deeper - Ms. Dynamite.

    5. 2 Many DJs - 2 Many DJs/Soulwax.

    6. The Coral - The Coral.

    7. The Eminem Show - Eminem.

    8. Sea Change - Beck.

    9. Last Broadcast - Doves.

    10. Beginning Stages Of… - The Polyphonic Spree.

    Coldplay's 'Blood' Is Billboard's Critics' Choice

    Billboard's critics have chosen Coldplay's sophomore Capitol album "A Rush of Blood to the Head" as No. 1 in their survey of 2002 albums. The honor comes from our annual critics' choice round-up, where the staffs of Billboard magazine and Billboard.com, and the freelance writers who contribute to each, are invited to submit a list of their top-10 favorite albums, singles, or musical events of the year.

    Coldplay's album narrowly edged out Queens Of The Stone Age's Interscope set "Songs for the Deaf," which is No. 2 on the list. The top-5 is rounded out by Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" (Nonesuch), Norah Jones's "Come Away With Me" (Blue Note), and Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising" (Columbia). The full tally can be found in the "Top-10 Lists" portion of Billboard.com's special 2002: The Year In Music section

      NO NOEL FOR NOEL





    Noel Gallagher has banned Christmas from his home - saying it's the most depressing day of the year.

    The Oasis star, whose ex-wife Meg Mathews recently stripped off for a magazine photo-shoot, said he will stay at home alone on December 25.

    He will have no decorations or cards and will keep his curtains closed.

    Noel said: "It's the first time I'm going to be on my own this Christmas and I'm really looking forward to not having any cards or decorations up.

    "So I'll be in London, sat on my couch, arns folded, curtains drawn, having a drink."

      A critical look back at the Brighton concert


    What with lawsuits, infighting and lost teeth, it's been a tough old month for Oasis. Yet, as they emerge tonight to the strains of 'F*cking In The Bushes' and launch straight into 'Hello', it appears to be business as usual. The guitars are loud and Liam is centre stage; his hands are behind his back and his voice is rasping. The Boys Are Back In Town. So far, so familiar.

    However, the huge visuals flashing above seem to transmit a more foreboding message. Depicting the Gallaghers' in a multitude of iconic black & white portraits they create the atmosphere of a tribute concert. Staring at these moody photos of Liam and Noel circa 1997 it feels as if someone, or something, has just died. As the gig continues this proves to be very apt.



    The set is a fair approximation of where Oasis are presently at. We get a fair shake of 'Heathen Chemistry', plenty from 'Definitely, Maybe' and 'What's The Story', a brace from 'Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants' and nothing from 'Be Here Now'. In short, they play the songs that made them the biggest band in Europe, plus some new ones that sound similar.

    This is a problem. As Bono might put it, they're stuck in a moment they can't get out of.

    Liam wanders round like an impotent lion with false teeth, still thinking that staring out the crowd qualifies as entertainment. Maybe it once did, but he'll be doing it in 2042 at this rate. Meanwhile, He who used to be in Ride, and Him from Heavy Stereo, add less personality than a Louis Walsh boyband. They simply stand there like clones, looking vacant in Aviator glasses. The long-departed Bonehead and Guiggsy were The Glimmer Twins by comparison.



    Maybe it's not their fault. Maybe the crowd needs Liam to be Liam and Noel to be Noel in the same way we need 'The Great Escape' and Morecambe & Wise at Christmas. They have become some sort of nostalgic sing-along-a-safety-blanket.

    Certainly, there are some embers of talent still burning, but these emanate almost solely from Noel. Whenever he takes the mic - for a welcome acoustic rendition of 'Married With Children' and for 'Little By Little' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger' - then some sort of passion stirs again. The minute Liam lopes back on, the atmosphere drags more than his knuckles. They finish with 'My Generation' which is possibly ironic. If not, then it's pathetic. A slur on all of us.

    If it were a football match then tonight had 0-0 written all over it. A scrappy long-ball game played by journeymen. To stretch the analogy further, if Oasis were a football team, they would be Blackburn Rovers: winners in the mid-90s, then relegated, and now offering little more than mid-table mediocrity. And in the Champion's League era that's no longer enough. In fact, maybe that's unfair on Blackburn - this was a strictly Second Division affair.

      Royal Court Liverpool Review




    AFTER much wailing and gnashing of (broken) teeth, the Oasis circus finally rolled into the city.

    Firstly for the benefit of the curious, let me say that nothing scandalous happened last night.

    There were no tantrums or trouble and the entire concert was a success but not in the way the tabloids would have liked.

    In the 1,500 capacity Royal Court a band that once played to 250,000 people in only two days took to the stage with smiles and professionalism.

    Tickets had sold out in 15 minutes and were then being touted on for a reported £500. But plenty of people did not even think the gig was going to happen at all after the frenzy which has surrounded this year's Oasis tour.

    Last week, singer Liam Gallagher had his front teeth knocked out in Munich and was arrested for brawling and it suddenly looked doubtful whether they would play together again.

    So for the crowds of fans the sight of the long-haired front man was a relief.

    This was a concert for the lucky few. The people who were there enjoyed the fact that they were there to see one of the most important groups of the past 10 years.

    There were no video back drops or fireworks, just five men and a crowd eager for a good gig.

    As usual, the band played the music exactly as it sounds on their records.

    There was no alteration in style or mood - with the exception of a blues version of Wonderwall - and so you had to like what they do or lump it.

    The set list had a weighting towards the latest album although the rest sounded like a greatest hits compilation.
    Meanwhile, Oasis did what they always do. Liam swag-gered around, Noel played and looked important while the rest of the band kept out of the way.

    That is not to say that this was not an accomplished concert, more that the band were great but uninspiring.

    When you strip away the hype, a competent, rather than good, group remains.

    You fall in love, not with a live band, but more with everything about Oasis - fights in bars and all. They are as much Liam's swagger as Noel's musicianship.

    That impression however is almost entirely reliant on the simple matter of whether you think that makes Liam is cool or a complete and utter idiot.

    There is after all only so much rock posturing that one person can take.

    Although when standing at the front of the stage only illuminated by flash bulbs of a hundred fans trying to capture the moment it all seemed important.

    When first making a name for themselves in the North West, Oasis played at Liverpool's cult Lomax club, then in Cumberland Street, often in front of less than 100 people.

    Oasis are important because of their fans' devotion but then again that is more than enough to make for a memorable Monday night in Liverpool

      Rock 'n' roll store




    THE GALLAGHER brothers belied their bad boys reputation when they paid homage to the Beatles before their Royal Court show last night.

    The Oasis frontmen made two surprise visits to The Beatles Shop in Mathew Street, delighting staff and fans alike.

    First in, at lunch-time, was Liam. The hellraiser was "polite and he didn't swear once," according to staff.

    Jamie Ferguson says it was a pleasant shock seeing him come in: "I was actually going to go to the stage door of the Royal Court and leave T-shirts for the band, but then Liam came here. "He was great and even signed an autograph for me on the back of a John Lennon notepad."

    Liam then told one young shopper the real truth about losing his front teeth.

    Says Jamie: "He told the lad that he was 'well ratted' that night and that he fell down some stairs and out the teeth popped. Contrary to reports in the papers, Liam said he wouldn't be left with a lisp and that the incident was blown out of all proportion. "Then he actually asked us if WE wanted a photo."

    Liam also went to the Mathew Street Gallery next door.

    Manager Melissa Storey told The insider that Liam looked around and said: "I can see some right Christmas presents here."

    Later on, brother Noel dropped in to the shop and bought some Magical Mystery Tour models and other Beatle memorabilia. He also bought a line-drawing from the gallery next door.

    The Beatles Shop manager Stephen Bailey says: "He must have spent £300 and he was really chatty saying that he was enjoying the current tour, but not really enjoying playing the old songs that much. "When I asked him about his brother Liam he said:

    'Oh, he's alright.' "Then he told me that he himself was leaning towards Buddhism in his life."

    It's not the first time Oasis have bought souvenirs from the shop ...

    They did purchase some Beatle knickers for their then respective girl-friends a few years ago.

      Oasis to sue over Brighton allegations


    17.12.2002
    Oasis are considering legal action against a number of UK tabloid newspapers which carried stories over the weekend claiming that the group were booed offstage during their show at the Brighton Centre last Wednesday (11th December) and that Noel wished the fans "died of hypothermia".

    A spokesperson for the band said "The story that first appeared last Friday as the cover story of the Daily Star is an incredible distortion of the facts. The truth is the show in Brighton was a successful concert that passed off without incident. The band were not booed offstage, Noel did not wish anyone died and we have a recording of the show to prove it. Those of us who were at the show and many of the industry guests including journalists who attended were shocked to read the press stories. We couldn't believe they were talking about the same show.

    "Whatever the press think of members of the band personally, Oasis are one of the most successful and exciting live bands ever to come out of this country. They have never been booed offstage in their ten years of touring. There have always been parts of the UK press who obviously have a vendetta against the band and resent their success but this is really going too far and we cannot accept this fabrication without response."

    The group are also considering action in relation to a newspaper article that claimed the first night of their UK tour in Cardiff was far from full, when in fact the show had sold out in less than half an hour

      LIAM HINTS FOR PRESENTS




    Now that Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has got his two front teeth back, all he wants for Christmas is a picture of George Harrison.

    Liam was out Christmas shopping in Liverpool's Cavern Quarter when he started hinting at what he'd like to find in his stocking.


    Browsing in a Beatles memorabelia shop, he swooped upon a £2,000 photograph of the late legend.

    Gallagher, taking a break from sound checks prior to tonight's sell-out gig at the Royal Court, expressed an interest in the 1966 print.

    Gift

    But rather than splash out on the photograph of Harrison, the Manchester-born singer suggested a member of his family may like to buy it as a gift for Christmas.

    Beatles Shop boss Stephen Bailey, 38, admitted he was won over by the Burnage bad boy, who recently lost his two front teeth following a fracas in a German hotel.

    He said: "Liam was dead nice. He was chatty and friendly to everyone who came in.

    "To be honest the first thing he asked was if they were going to the gig tonight. And if not he offered to stick their name down on the guest list.

    Fan

    "The picture of George Harrison upstairs in the gallery did seem to catch his eye.

    "He said he'd have to have a word with someone in his family."

    Gallagher, who lives with former All Saint Nicole Appleton, is a big Beatles fan, naming his son Lennon after the legendary Fab Four singer/songwriter.

    He bought three t-shirts and a set of badges spelling out the title of the band's hit HELP! during his shopping trip.

      Go Forth with Anger




    The Oasis circus has rolled into the UK amid reports of a shambolic date in Brighton, with Noel Gallagher apparently announcing he wished some of the audience would "die of hypothermia".

    The band's show at the Brighton Centre on Tuesday evening reportedly also featured Liam abusing technicians and hissing his way through the chorus of one of the tracks from current album 'Hindu Times'.

    Sporting a new set of front teeth, Liam apparently threw his customary tantrum when technical difficulties led to excessive treble on his vocal. He cursed his sound engineers and his microphone, raging at the inanimate "f**king thing."

    When he came to sing the chorus to recent hit 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' he apparently exaggerated the problem by simply emitting a persistent "ssssssssss."

    However, fans at the show denied tabloid reports that Noel Gallagher poured scourn on the crowd when they sang along to his acoustic performance of 'Wonderwall'.

    The Sun claims that Noel raged at fans when they sang throughout, describing him as having "screamed" at the crowd: "All you c***s who sang to 'Wonderwall', I hope you all die of hypothermia."

    However, fans claim that the quote has been taken out of context and was, in fact, another example of good-natured Gallagher humour. They also deny that the band was booed off stage.

    For a full review of the Brighton show, check-out dotmusic later today.

      Oasis in Brighton


    Oasis are a band which defined a generation. They led the charge of the lad brigade brandishing bad attitudes, foul mouths and bruised knuckles.

    Their anarchy captured the imagination of Thatcher's children. Their raw arrogance was refreshing and their spirits untameable.

    But that was the Nineties and times have changed. Oasis, on the other hand, have not.

    The band still live the cigarettes-and-alcohol lifestyle of their heyday. The fists are still flying, the arguments raging and the feuds simmering.

    It's no secret the music has suffered. Recent albums have been short on anthems and large on average guitar songs. But, these days, Oasis are less about the music and more about hype.

    And what better hype than losing your front teeth in a drunken brawl, casting jeopardy over your UK tour and falling out with your band-mate brother in spectacular fashion.

    It's rock 'n' roll baby and it's what Oasis do best. In Brighton, Oasis were larger-than-life, their show a kind of rock pantomime.

    At least five songs passed before Liam acknowledged the crowd and then it was only an unintelligible murmur. In fact, Liam hardly spoke throughout the gig. Perhaps his new front teeth were giving him stick or maybe it was his rumoured lisp that was keeping him quiet.

    Regardless, the crowd were mad for it, reflecting Liam's sulky attitude with their own.

    They hurled beer, plastic bottles, shoes, jackets and crowd-surfed with a vengeance.

    Unlike at their Cardiff gig no one threw wind-up chattering teeth, perhaps because we were searched on the way in.

    Noel stood as far away from Liam as possible, not a look or word passed between them.



    Liam had continuous problems with his mic and, at one point stormed off, leaving Noel in the limelight. Like a break in the clouds, the atmosphere changed and the crowd adapted its behaviour accordingly.

    We swayed rather than moshed, sang rather than hurled abuse and, for a couple of minutes, it was a completely different gig.

    But then attitude-boy returned, tambourine under his arm like a baseball bat, giving it large, sneering at the crowd and the tension rocketed once again.

    We were given all the hits and tracks from the band's latest album, Heathen Chemistry.

    Noel attempted an acoustic version of Wonderwall but gave up because he didn't want people singing along.

    Security was tight because the Appletons were backstage along with a hoard of celebs.

    Hove's Steve Coogan and his fiancee were also in the crowd. After more than an hour-and-a-half, they finished with a track by The Who.

    The song was, quite aptly, My Generation

      Noel hates me



    Robbie Williams has revealed that his feud with Noel Gallagher is far from settled.
    "Noel hates me," said the singer. "He said he'd rather be dead than be me and I've never done anything to upset him. I just find it really weird - but I'm glad I spend a lot of time in his thoughts." Robbie reckons his life is pretty peachy right now, having released his latest album Escapology through a reported £80m deal with EMI. "I don't regret anything really," the Robster reckons, "apart from a few people who I slept with - you know, some right dogs!"

      Oasis in Plymouth


    Plymouth Pavilions
    Thursday December 12th
    Tickets: SOLD OUT



    The appearance of Manchester rockers Oasis is another big coup for the Plymouth Pavilions...but there was a last minute scare after the incident in Germany which saw Liam Gallagher needing hospital treatment.

    Liam was involved in a scuffle just days before the group's gig in Plymouth, and needed emergency treatment to damaged teeth.

    However, despite having to cancel their remaining German concerts, the group announced they were able to play in Plymouth as scheduled...prompting huge sighs of relief all round.

    The Gallagher brothers and the rest of the band remain among the top acts in the world - and their latest CD, Heathen Chemistry - is the best thing they've done for ages.
    Liam Gallagher
    Hindu Times, Stop Crying Your Heart Out and Little By Little/She Is Love/My Generation have all been hit singles taken off the album.

    The group are on a UK tour, following their gigs in the US - two of which had to be postponed when Noel Gallagher, Andy Bell and Jay Darlington were hurt in a car crash in Indianapolis.

    The Plymouth show will feature much of the new CD, but expect oldies like Wonderwall, Don't Look back In Anger and Married with Children, as well.

    The band's main songwriter, Noel, is known to be ruthlessly self critical. Yet he told the band's official website that he really loves the new album.

    "It's a better collection of songs than the last two or three. It boils down to that: the songs are better. It does get more difficult. You can't just write Raspberry Fields Forever."



    Noel Gallagher
    "I don't know if I'm a better songwriter," he said. "But there is something in the air around the band that breeds better songs."

    He added: "The best songs pour out of you. You sit there with a guitar and a piece of paper and a pen, get the first line right, the rest of it comes immediately."

    After years of playing stadium gigs, the band deliberately decided to play smaller venues during their latest tour, to get a more intimate setting for their fans.

    Three thousand, six hundred tickets for the concert went on sale at 9am on Saturday 31st August and were sold out by 10.30am.

    The group will be playing to a capacity crowd in Plymouth. The Pavilions is one of only eight venues the band will play this December.

    It is not the first time Oasis have played in Devon, they have previously thrilled crowds at Westpoint Arena near Exeter.

    Notorious as they are for being the "bad boys of pop", it remains to be seen whether the Gallagher brothers will be up to any of their tricks in the city.

      Noel rants at fans "I hope you all die!"



    Noel Gallagher launched into an angry outburst against his Oasis fans before being booed off stage last night - saying he hoped they "died of hypothermia".

    The attack came after his brother, Liam, stormed off stage after struggling with vocals and demanding a new microphone four times.
    The 30-year-old also had problems with his new front teeth after he lost his original set during a fight in a German bar.

    Noel, 35, halted an acoustic version of Wonderwall when fans ignored his request to remain quiet. He said: "I told you, I don't want to hear you sing, I want to hear myself sing."



    As the band was preparing for an encore, he said: "All you c***s who sang through Wonderwall, I hope you all die of hypothermia."
    The band then left the stage at the Brighton Centre.

    Fan Paul Whittles said: "It wasn't the best Oasis gig I have seen but one thing you can say about them is they are not boring."

      Liam just a big wimp says Tony

    The Sun




    LIAM GALLAGHER is a complete wimp who couldn’t punch his way out of a paper bag, says ex-OASIS drummer TONY McCARROLL.


    Tony, who was sacked by the band during the making of their second album, says the Oasis frontman’s beating in Munich proves to the world that Liam is no hardman.

    He says: “I used to turn him upside down for fun. He’s not a f*****g hardman.

    “Liam can be intimidating but that’s it. Make no mistake, he couldn’t punch his way out of a paper bag.

    “He’s always hiding behind his security guards. The hardman image is total b******s.”

    Liam had to have emergency dental surgery on his front teeth a week ago after having them smashed out in a bar brawl in Germany.

    Meanwhile, Liam and brother NOEL are still not talking.
    Liam drove to last night’s Brighton gig with fiancée NICOLE APPLETON while Noel stayed in the coastal city’s Hotel du Vin. They didn’t exchange a word all night

      Rolling Stone Down Under - Noel Interview

    January 2003 | Rolling Stone Australia
    By Jeff Apter



    When Oasis songwriter/guitarist Noel Gallagher decides to pack in the band, he's bound to end up hosting a talk show. Garrulous and opinionated - and bloody funny - he clearly got the smart Gallagher genes, whereas his brother, 30 year old Oasis singer Liam, tends to act first and settle out of court later. Now 35, Noel and the band have spent much of 2002 on the road, pushing their fifth album, Heathen Chemistry. During downtime, he recovers from hangovers, embarrasses himself in public libraries and dreams of writing lyrics like Morrissey.

    How did you start writing songs?

    It's a calling, innit? One day I picked up an acoustic guitar and it felt
    right. I was the only one in the gang of people I used to knock about with
    that was musical. Everybody else was into theft and football violence. But
    what led me there? The Unseen God of Rock & Roll, whatever that is.

    What was the first song you fell for?

    "She Loves You", The Beatles. My parents had the red and blue albums so I guess I heard it there. I liked the way they'd shake their heads and go
    "Wooooh". It's a good song.

    What was the first song you nailed on the guitar?

    "House of the rising son". I managed to meet up with a guy who lived nearby, who I heard had a guitar. Was it easy? Fuck no. I found it easy to stay on one chord, but the jump from A Minor to C took about a month and from there to D took another month. I was in my early teens. Never looked back. well, only in anger. Boom boom.

    And the first album you bought?

    It was the Sex Pistols' Never mind the bollocks. I bought it when I was 13
    from a shop called Sifter's, which was immortalised in the song
    "Shakermaker". It was a bit of a giggle because it had swearing in it.
    Especially "Bodies", which had "fuck" and "shit" in it and you had to play
    it softly so your Mum didn't find out. You didn't understand at that point
    that it was a culturally significant record.

    Do you still go record shopping"

    Funny story. I been out record shopping in Melbourne. I went into this shop
    and picked out a load of records - I had a spectacular hangover. I was in
    there for an hour and these records were in fucking great nick, all vinyl.
    So I put them on the counter and this bloke said "Can I have your name
    please?" So I said it was Noel. And he asked for my last name and I said
    "Gallagher". He punched it into a compute and I thought , "this is a bit
    fuckin' fascist!". He asked if I had an address, and I said "Yeah, England".
    Then he told me my name wasn't coming up on the computer and I said, "why would my fucking name be coming up on your computer?". Then he said, "because this is a library." Then I went back to the pub where I should have stayed in the first place.

    I believe you're a friend of Bono's.

    He's great. People say "Look at him with fucking Geaorge Buch" and that but
    he wears his heart on his sleeve. I tell you what: He's as real as it gets.
    I love him.

    Do you have a favourite U2 song?

    "One". Fantastic song. I have a funny Bono story. One night it was me, Liam
    and Bono in the back of a limo and me and Liam were going on about the song
    "One" and how great it was. Now, i'm sure that fucker had a hand in this
    somehow, but guess what song came on the radio when we turned it on? Fucking
    "One" by U2. He is close to God, that fucker. We looked at him and said
    "Have you got your own radio station?"

    What would you like to change about your songwriting?

    I could do with a fuckin' lyricist, I tell you what. Music and melody comes
    naturally, words - well, I get it right more often than that - but I wish I
    could articulate feelings and thoughts like Morrissey or Bono or Thom Yorke.
    But they couldn't write a song like "Hindu Times" , so it balances itself
    out.

    Has anyone ever told you they've had sex to Oasis records?

    Absolutely. Last time I was in Japan I met a gang of strippers who told me
    they danced to "Champagne Supernova" and "Wonderwall" all the time. I said,
    "Oh really?". I didn't get a demonstration, unfortunately.

    Would you and Liam agree on Oasis' best song?

    "Live Forever". It just meant so much to everyone at the time. Every band
    that was in Britain was great up until the time that came out - we became IT
    after one song. It kickstarted the whole thing. Two weeks later the album
    came out and then - fucking bingo.

    What's your take on the Vines and the new garage rock bands?

    I really want to like the Vines but I'm not too sure what's stopping me.
    There's the whole Nirvana thing going on, but I think Kurt Cobain had a far
    better sense of melody. I want to see them live before making my mind up.
    The jury's out.

    How does your daughter Anais react to your music?

    "Roll with it" is her favourite, probably. She's as batty as a box of
    frogs - but I tell you, she's a good little dancer.

      MEG'S NAKED GLORY



    Noel Gallagher's ex-wife Meg Mathews has stripped off for a sensational photoshoot - and rubbished rumours that the couple are set for a reconciliation.


    The Oasis star reportedly wants to get back together with Mathews two years after they split.

    But Mathews told Elle magazine: "It's total rubbish. Not a single word of it is true."

    The 35-year-old is pictured naked except for a pair of fluffy white boots on the cover of the January edition.

    It is her first major interview since the couple divorced and Mathews is attempting something of an image makeover.

    Party

    The woman once famed for her wild party lifestyle is reinventing herself as a hard-working single mother - although first she has to find a job.

    "The world is my oyster. I've been a stylist, fashion buyer, artist manager, events organiser, PA. I've just got to work out where to blag myself next," she said.

    Mathews still has some contact with Gallagher because of their daughter, two-year-old Anais.

    Since their split, Gallagher has been less than kind about Mathews in interviews.

    Dignity

    But she refused to hit back, saying: "There's been plenty of times Noel has said things about me in the papers and I've wanted to say something back, but then I think `No, keep your dignity, keep your head down for Anais'.

    "So I will never talk about our split. It's to do with me and him and not everybody else."

        LIVE FOREVER "this one's for my teeth!"

      LIAM GALLAGHER dedicated ‘LIVE FOREVER’ to his missing front teeth on the opening night of OASIS’ UK tour last night.

      The show at the Cardiff CIA (December 8) marked the group’s first live performance since their fracas in a German hotel, in which Liam is alleged to have kicked a German policemen and battled with a group of Italians.

      The band took to the stage at 9pm, with Liam clad in camouflage jacket, his trademarked half-crescent tambourine clutched in hand.

      Noel Gallagher remained silent for the majority of the show, but loosened up a little in a short solo acoustic spot, performing acoustic readings of ‘Married With Children’ and ‘The Masterplan’.

      Earlier in the weekend however, Noel had hinted that relations were still strained between the Gallagher brothers.

      "All I'm bothered about is that he can still sing," he told the News Of The World newspaper. "My concern is for his voice. But I haven't spoken to him directly. Why should we talk after what's gone on? Since I've been back I've been looking after my daughter.

      "I really don't know what we're going to do about his drinking and behaviour - we've been here before but I really don't want to be here again, if you take my meaning. At least the tour is back on and I'm glad because I don't want to let down any of our supporters."

      Oasis were forced to cancel their remaining four European mainland dates in the aftermath of the brawl so Liam could return to the UK for vital dental surgery.

      The group continue their UK tour this evening with a second show in Cardiff, and are due to end at the Birmingham NIA on December 19. All shows are sold out.

          Liam Beaten up

          OASIS have been forced to cancel a gig in Munich tonight (Sunday, December 1) following an attack on frontman LIAM GALLAGHER.

          The Oasis singer suffered facial injuries and several broken teeth after he and his entourage were the victims of an "unprovoked attack" by a gang of youths in Munich late last night (Saturday, ). Drummer Alan White was the only other band member involved in the brawl and he escaped without injury. Two of the band's security men, who were with the Oasis pair, both needed hospital treatment. One of the security men, who has not been named, is still in hospital under observation after he was knocked unconscious in the attack. The German youths fled before police arrived. Liam Gallagher and his entourage were arrested and taken to the police station where they were questioned about the incident, before being released without charge. Liam Gallagher is believed to receiving emergency dental treatment and the band have cancelled tonight's sold-out gig at Munich Zenith. Oasis' spokeswoman issued this statement: "Some members of Oasis and their entourage were the victims of an unprovoked attack by a group of youths in a Munich club last night. Liam Gallagher sustained facial injuries, including several broken teeth, while two of the group's security guards were forced to seek hospital treatment, one after being knocked unconscious. "The attackers left the scene before police arrived. The police took several of the Oasis group, including Liam Gallagher, to the local station for questioning in relation to the incident. All those arrested were later released without charge." Police inquiries continue. The band remain in Germany where they are next due to play at Hamburg's Color-Line Arena tomorrow (December 2).

          ROBBIEMANIA

          ROBBIE WILLIAMS has beaten OASIS' record in selling out two dates at Knebworth - selling out in just seven hours, beating the Gallaghers record by two hours. In order to satisfy demand Robbie has added a third date on 1 August 2003 in addition to dates on the 2 and 3 August at Knebworth in Hertfordshire.

          The new date is the latest edition to a 16-date European tour which also sees him taking in Edinburgh and Dublin. The news is bound to reignite animosity between Robbie and the Gallaghers which has frequently boiled over since Liam dismissed Robbie as a 'fat dancer'. Oasis sold 250,000 tickets in 1996 to their Knebworth shows - although over two million attempted to buy them. Robbie Williams is almost certain to go straight to number one later today with his fifth album 'Escapology' after recently inking a deal with EMI reported to be worth £80 million.

          Tickets for the tour are on sale now, priced £35. Tickets are available from the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 663. Calls are charged at national standard rate.

          Liam and Noel no longer speaking

          LIAM and NOEL GALLAGHER have fallen out again, NME.COM can reveal – and the brothers are no longer on speaking terms. The falling-out between the brothers happened almost six weeks ago when Liam stormed offstage at the beginning of an Oasis gig in Japan. Liam had bowed out of the gig at Fukuoka Kokusai Center after he said his voice had packed in. But Noel reacted furiously and is still blaming his younger brother for leaving him to sing a solo set.

          Noel told NME.COM: "Liam had been whingeing about his monitors all the way through the tour, really pregnant doging. After the fourth song, '…Morning Glory', I said to him 'Are you gonna f**king shut up for the rest of the f**king year, or are you gonna carry on moaning you moaning bastard?'. He looked at me really weirdly and threw his tambourine on the floor like a woman, then walked off." At first, Noel assumed Liam would return. But he had gone for the night. Noel added: "The tour manager said he had gone, so I thought: 'You f**king wanker'. They got Liam on the phone and there was just this torrent of abuse. I haven't spoken to him since. Not a word. It's probably best that way, until the tour is finished. Because if I did, I would probably knock him out. "If he walks into a room, I'll walk out because I think he f**king let us down. I don't mind if he's got a sore throat, but not if he just wantonly has a diva fit on stage because his elder brother tells him to stop moaning. Because if everyone at the gig sees the singer having a bad time, they think: should I be having a good time or a bad time?"

          OXFAM at the London Astoria

          NOEL GALLAGHER and CHRIS MARTIN teamed up to perform a cover of THE SMITHS' 'STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU'VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE', as part of an amazing night of collaborations at the LONDON ASTORIA. As previously reported, 'Fair Play' (October 29) was organised by Emily Eavis, the daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael. The show was intended to raise cash and awareness for Oxfam, helping to raise the profile of their Make Trade Fair campaign. The bill featured Lamb, Idlewild, Noel Gallagher and Coldplay, who were billed as featuring 'special guests'.

          After a solo set from Gallagher, which featured the likes of 'Wonderwall', 'Slide Away' and 'Married With Children', Coldplay took to the stage, and performed a handful of their own songs. They were then joined by Ms Dynamite for a cover of Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds', and her own songs 'It Takes More' and 'Dy-Na-Mi-Tee'. She was then replaced by Noel, who performed a duet of Coldplay's hit single 'Yellow', and Oasis' 'Live Forever'. During the duets, Martin appeared overcome, telling the audience that it was one of the best moments of his life. Their set also included a cover of The Smiths' 'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before', a song that originally featured on the legendary Manchester group's 1987 album, 'Strangeways, Here We Come'. Noel Gallagher's set ran:

          'Talk Tonight'
          'Slide Away'
          'Wonderwall'
          'Don't Look Back In Anger'
          'Married With Children'
          Coldplay played:

          'In My Place'
          'Don't Panic'
          'The Scientist'
          'It Takes More' (with Ms Dynamite)
          'Three Little Birds' (with Ms Dynamite)
          'Dy-Na-Mi-Tee' (with Ms Dynamite)
          'Yellow' (with Noel Gallagher)
          'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before' (with Noel Gallagher)
          'Live Forever' (with Noel Gallagher)
          'Many Rivers To Cross'
          'Whatever' (with Noel Gallagher)

          Sept 15 2002

          OASIS made a triumphant return to hometurf last night (September 14) with at the first of two massive outdoor shows. The gig, at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, was the band’s biggest Manchester show since their Maine Road bash in 1996. Celebrities in attendance included former Cast frontman John Power, Primal Scream's Mani and actor Ralf Little. Despite a troubled live campaign, which has seen Noel involved in a car accident and Liam beset by throat problems, the hit-packed show was uneventful, except for Liam and Noel both urging fans at the front to calm down and avoid any crushing. Liam did not, however, refer to the venue itself. Rumours had it that the Gallagher brothers had insisted that all promotional material should use the alternative title ‘Lancashire Country Cricket Club’, stringently avoiding any reference to the Manchester City fans’ arch rivals, Manchester United. Oasis’ full set-list was:

          'Hello'
          'The Hindu Times'
          'Hung In A Bad Place'
          'Go Let It Out'
          'Columbia'
          'Morning Glory'
          'Stop Crying Your Heart Out'
          'Little By Little'
          'Cigarettes & Alcohol'
          'Live Forever'
          'Better Man'
          'She’s Electric'
          'Born On A Different Cloud'
          'Acquiesce'
          ' Force Of Nature'
          'Don’t Look Back In Anger'
          'Some Might Say'
          'My Generation'
          'Wonderwall'

          Support came from Richard Ashcroft, The Electric Soft Parade and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. Ashcroft debuted tracks from his forthcoming second solo album ‘Human Conditions’, including new single ‘Check The Meaning’. His set was light on material from much-maligned 2000 solo debut ‘Alone With Everybody’, concentrating on Verve tracks. He ended with a radically reworked, bass-heavy version of ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’, which did away with the strings the brass parts.

          The same line-up return to Old Trafford today (September 15).



          --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          Sept.2002

          OASIS UK tour has been dealt a blow after LIAM GALLAGHER walked offstage, complaining of a lost voice.

          The band were playing the second of two nights at the Aberdeen Exhibition And Conference Centre last night (September 10), their first indoor gigs in Scotland since a show at Glasgow Barrowlands last October as part of their 'Ten Years Of Noise And Confusion' tour. Towards the end of the band's gig Liam lost his voice, leaving Noel and the rest of the band to fill out the set, which ended with the guitarist playing a solo version of 'Wonderwall'. Noel also performed the encores himself, telling fans Liam had a sore throat. Liam's throat problems mirror that of the opening show on the band's US tour (August 2). At that date at the, 3,000 capacity Pompano Beach Amphitheater in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Liam announced his voice had gone "awry" during 'Go Let It Out', and walked off. Noel carried on with the show, performing some songs with the band and an eight-track acoustic set.

          Oasis are due to play two hometown shows at the Manchester Old Trafford Cricket Ground with Richard Ashcroft (September 14-15) with this weekend. NME.COM can announce that the bill will also include the Electric Soft Parade and Soundtrack Of Our Lives. Before that, they play another date in Scotland, at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange tomorrow night (September 12).




          --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
