      Why Starsailor is not like Oasis...

    Interview Excerpt with James Stelfox :


    The new album is called "Silence Is Easy." Is it?

    The title was sort of an answer to our critics in Britain. We were never the rock stars like the Gallagher brothers from Oasis and Blur and bands like that. We've always been perceived by the press as just letting the music do the talking. But we drink, and we take drugs occasionally--we just don't go and tell the press that we do it all the time. What we do in our spare time is our business.

    Maybe you need to do some more outlandish stuff to get the press' attention?

    If you're a rock star like Liam Gallagher, and you're an asshole, you're going to be well covered. So maybe we'll start getting high in front of people ... that might boost our success.

      NME reports on Oasis split



    In this weeks issue:

    Oasis split again .....

    OASIS - Why has Noel Gallagher been playing drums on the new record?

    UPDATE :


    The Article

    'Throughout the week rumour circulated saying that the drummer had left, but injury (tendonitis) wasn't the real reason.' As NME went to press Alan hadn't issued his own statement. The band will be in the studio this week to record the follow up to Heathen Chemistry and Noel IS believed to be drumming on the EARLY recordings.

    Under the title...

    'THEY'VE ALREADY FOUND A REPLACEMENT'

    NME has been told that ex-Proud Mary drummer Terry Kirkbride is the favourite to join the line-up. He'll be the 11th Member of Oasis! Steve White (Alans brother) is not interested in drumming for the band.

    Noel also says:
    'This album is gonna be ten songs. There'll be no ballads or string sections on there. Hearing it in my head its gonna be a proper psychedelic rock 'n' roll record. Imagine Bob Dylans 'Highway 61 Revisited' crossed with 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' with a bit of The Stone Roses thrown in for for good measure' The band are also rumoured to be playing Glastonbury in June, although nothing was confirmed as NME went to press.

      Steve White rules out joining Oasis

    ALAN WHITE’s brother STEVE has ruled out joining OASIS - even though he’s played with the band before.

    Steve White is currently working with Paul Weller on his new album. The star, who also plays drums, has filled in for Alan before, notably on a 2001 tour with the Black Crowes when he had a problem with his thumb. Writing on his official website, Steve said that he’s been bombarded with questions asking he will join Oasis, but has no plans to do so. He wrote: "The question of Alan’s membership of Oasis is not my business…have I been asked to replace him in the band? CATEGORICALLY NO. Would I replace him? CATEGORICALLY NO."


    NME.COM revealed last week Oasis have started work on their new album without Alan, who they say they asked to leave the band. A statement read: "Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members. There are no plans to replace Alan. The band's scheduled recording sessions remain unaffected."

    White joined Oasis after original drummer Tony McCarroll was booted out before the recording sessions for classic second album ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)’ in 1995. White is the closest thing the Gallaghers have to a founder member besides themselves, having played on four albums and countless tours. Oasis will release their new album later this year, possibly in September. NME.COM understands Noel has been drumming on the early demos.

      Tough going for Britpop in US

    LONDON (AFP) - Not that long ago, music from Britain consistently topped the US pops, but in recent years, no British pop music act has managed to excite the American public quite like the Beatles in the 1960s, even if Coldplay, a rare recent success in the United States, offers a glimmer of hope. The figures speak for themselves: in this week's US top 100 album chart, there were just four British singers or bands. Coldplay, Chris Martin's young rock band, came in at number 36 with "A Rush of Blood To The Head". But they trailed well behind The Beatles, who reached notch number 26 with "Let It Be ... Naked", 40 years after the Fab Four first hit the US charts and 23 years after the murder of John Lennon.

    But the highest British placing went to another rock veteran, Rod Stewart, at 18 with "As Time Goes By". Sting, the former Police frontman long turned solo artist, was at number 61 with his latest album "Sacred Love". Sam Shemtob of the Association of Independent Music noted that both soul star Craig David and Coldplay have "sold well" on the other side of the Atlantic. "So some bands, some UK acts are bucking the trend a bit," he said. "Possibly things have improved." But Conor McNicholas, editor of British music weekly New Musical Express, was less optimistic, and does not see Coldplay as an augur of better times ahead. "It isn't a sign of a renaissance at all. We just do not have the bands to do that at this point," he recently told the Guardian newspaper. "Coldplay are exceptional for a whole host of reasons. They are by far and away the best British band that are working at the moment, and I include Radiohead in that, too."

    Back in 1986, British "new wave" bands like Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys and Simple Minds seized a remarkable 32 percent of the US market. Thirteen years later, however, the British share had slumped to 0.2 percent, and Fat Boy Slim's "You've Come a Long Way Baby" was the only British album to make the US top 100 in 1999. A British Council report in 2002 found that 92 percent of the US music market was made up of homegrown music talent. British music, the report found, suffered in a market which was "increasingly fragmented and localised and therefore more complex and costly to access".

    It also blamed "the negative attitude" of certain British bands for contributing to the drop in sales, especially the antics of Oasis and its volatile singer Liam Gallagher. At the end of the 1990s, Oasis "encapsulated both the positive and negative sides of the British music 'brand'," the report found. "Rightly or wrongly, Oasis were viewed as one of the leaders of the last readily identifiable British US musical invasion under the banner of 'Britpop' -- an invasion that, in retrospect, clearly failed to match the impact of its predecessors," it concluded.

    The bold solution, according to the British Council, would be to establish a British music office in New York to promote British music. But so far, the project has not got off the ground. According to Shemtob, "talks are still ongoing regarding the UK music office in New York City."

      Session drummer expected for Live dates


    Rock band Oasis have sacked drummer Alan White, the band's longest-serving member after Noel and Liam Gallagher. Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members," the band confirmed on their website. They said there were no plans to replace White, who joined Oasis after original drummer Tony McCarroll was asked to leave in 1995.

    Oasis are currently working with dance act Death In Vegas, and said the move would not affect their recording plans.
    It is expected that Noel will play drums in the studio and a session musician will be drafted in for any future live dates. There have been a number of line-up changes in Oasis' chequered history since their debut single Supersonic in 1994.


    Liam and Noel Gallagher are the headline grabbers of the band.

    The original band was Noel and Liam, Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul McGuigan and Carroll. Carroll was the first to leave, followed in 1999 by McGuigan and Arthurs a few years later to be replaced by Andy Bell and Gem Archer. In 1999, Carroll was awarded £500,000 in unpaid royalties but later attempted to sue the solicitors who handled his record contract. But the case for compensation was dismissed because he had taken too long to file it.

      Noel to drum on new album ?


    NOELASIS


    OASIS have kicked out drummer ALAN WHITE and replaced him with — NOEL GALLAGHER.
    That makes him guitarist, singer, songwriter and now king of the skins. It seems no one’s job is safe — at this rate by 2010 the band is going to look like my mock-up above. The four members, Noel, brother LIAM, ANDY BELL and GEM ARCHER fired Alan over claims he was not pulling his weight. Noel takes on his new, er, roll this Monday when the boys start work on their sixth studio album at a secret Cornish location.


    Last night a group statement read: “Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members. “There are no plans to replace Alan. The band’s scheduled recording sessions remain unaffected.” An industry insider told me: “There was talk Alan had an injury and had to leave but the truth is there have been questions about his commitment. “Noel can’t be a***d with getting a new drummer when he knows he can do the job perfectly well himself. “He thinks it’ll probably be the best drumming heard on any Oasis album.” Alan is the second drummer the band have sacked since they burst on to the scene in 1994. He replaced TONY McCARROLL who was axed after their first year.

    The unnamed album is being produced by indie dance duo RICHARD FEARLESS and STEVE HILLIER from DEATH IN VEGAS, whose Scorpio Rising album Liam sang on last year. When Oasis tour the as-yet-untitled album next year they will draft in a session musician to play on most of the tracks. But they are not ruling out the possibility of Noel doing a PHIL COLLINS and taking to the drums and singing.


    I reckon he could do a convincing cover of LEO SAYER’s One Man Band.

      Band requests Alan to leave Oasis

    From the official Oasis website Oasisinet :

    Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members. There are no plans to replace Alan. The band's scheduled recording sessions remain unaffected.

    From NME.com :

    ALAN WHITE'S DEPARTURE FROM OASIS CONFIRMED

    ALAN WHITE is out of OASIS - and the band say they’ve asked him to leave.

    The future of the drummer has been the subject of intense speculation all week after a tabloid newspaper claimed he was to quit the group because of problems with tendonitis.

    White joined Oasis after original drummer Tony McCarroll was booted out before the recording sessions for classic second album ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)’ in 1995. White is the closest thing the Gallaghers have to a founder member besides themselves, having played on four albums and countless tours.

    A spokesperson for the band contacted NME.COM today, and confirmed White had left the band.

    She said:"Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members. There are no plans to replace Alan. The band's scheduled recording sessions remain unaffected."

    Oasis will release their new album later this year, possibly in September.

      Injury forcing Alan White to quit Oasis

    Drummed Out


    Oasis are proving yet again that they're a real rock band by keeping up the great tradition of rock bands since rock began: changing drummers every few years. First they dumped Tony McCarroll, apparently because he had a perm. Now Alan White is quitting too.

    Unusually for Oasis there are no reports of punch ups, fights and shouting matches accompanying the announcement. Alan's just knackered his hands and he needs to give his wrists a rest. And before you all start nudging each other and winking, he's hurt his wrists by holding his drum sticks wrong, alright!?

    Alan had to step away from the drums and take a break during the band's last tour because of injury. His brother Steve briefly took over the beat duties, but whether he'll replace Alan full time remains to be seen.

    *******

    Terry Kirkbride first in line ?

    Terry who drums for Proud Mary seems to be the most mentioned possible replacement for Alan White.
    This little out take is from a Q magazine interview with Proud Mary :

    Q. Who’s drumming for you now?
    Spot: Terry Kirkbride is back with us now. He’s doing really well now, does all Noel's demos, plays with Weller, Daltry. Kelly Jones, Ashcroft. He deserves it, he’s a mint drummer and a top lad .

    Other possible replacements in the rumor mill are Steve White ( Alan's brother) and Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey
    who's been drumming for Johnny Mar in The Healers.

      Oasis and the rest of Rock in 2004

    The big question as we enter 2004 is simply "Do you want some?" The answer will come when Liam Gallagher and elder brother Noel return to the fray with the new Oasis album later this year.

    Although to some the Mancunian brothers' group may be too tied up with the hangover of '90s Britpop to ever be a potent force again, they are still undoubtedly one of the biggest rock groups in the country. They do like to tread water, however, and a much-needed change in direction may finally come with the introduction of Death In Vegas man Richard Fearless as producer.

    And the ageing Oasis fans should be, if not mad for it, at least reasonably excited. Even so, Liam's drive to be Top Rock Dog will have stiff competition from acts both old and new.

    For a start, there's U2 who'll be back to apply for the job of The Best Band In The World. Bono's mob are giving usual studio accomplices Brian Eno, Steve Lilywhite and Daniel Lanois a rest and have drafted in legendary Brit-rock producer Chris Thomas (The Sex Pistols, Roxy Music, The Pretenders and Pulp) for the follow-up to All That You Can't Leave Behind.

    They said it couldn't happen, but after the death of bassist John Entwistle, even those legendary rock survivors The Who are back in business. Britain's greatest living rock songwriter Pete Townshend and singer Roger Daltrey are together again on their first album since Face Dances in 1982.

    The Gallagher brothers and everyone else will also have to be on their toes to better a raft of inspired up and coming British bands. The ones to watch out for include euphoric tunesmiths The Stands, angst rockers The Veils and prog-accented The Open. Also in contention are The Coral's soul-mates The Zutons and Scottish rowdies Franz Ferdinand.

    Even so, the old men of rock still won't be silenced. So expect celebrations of late-flowering fatherhood and his Fab life from Sir Paul McCartney who has a new album due. Other pop royalty pushing the solo boat out include Sir Elton John and Led Zep singer Robert Plant. Guitar god Eric Clapton will step up to the breach before the summer, with a customary live run at the Royal Albert Hall included.

    Aerosmith will deliver a back-to-their-roots blues album and Modfather Paul Weller will celebrate his new deal with Richard Branson's V2 label by releasing a set of cover versions.

    Bridging the gap between the old and (relatively) new, Plant's Led Zeppelin partner John Paul Jones will produce the new album from Kiwi AC/DC soundalikes The Datsuns. Lenny Kravitz will have a new album out in May and we'll all have a chance to ask the fake Hendrix, Who are you trying to kid man? while Nicole smoulders to the sound of his axe.

    Prepare for a rush on bouffant hairdos, mascara and goth-rock reminiscences as Robert Smith leads The Cure through their umpteenth revival. The garage rock gravy train will get a further fuel injection when sharp-suited Swedes The Hives re-release their first album since their homeland was declared the new musical epicentre of the known universe. Their fellow countrymen, psychedelic maestros The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, will release the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated Behind The Music album.

    Sweden is also where emotive Scottish rockers Idlewild have been recording their fourth album, the follow-up to the acclaimed The Remote Part. They'll be hoping to build on much goodwill and a future in Coldplay territory.

    Meanwhile, back in the world of bling, Destiny's Child will be recording a new album which aims to bring us the best of Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyoncé. And no doubt a little Jay-Z too. On the home-front, talented young Nu-Soul Camden lass Amy Winehouse will be looking to oust the American competition.

    Mike Skinner's alter ego The Streets will follow up his groundbreaking Brit garage rap album Original Pirate Material. Among the most eagerly anticipated rap albums of the year from across the Atlantic will be the new one from the eccentric but inspired duo DM & Jemini and a solo outing from former Organized Konfusion member Prince Po.

    If she gets her childcare, drug and legal problems sorted out, everybody's favourite celebrity freak show Courtney Love may finally unleash her American Sweetheart solo debut and, a decade after her husband's demise, finally prove whether or not she has artistic life beyond Kurt Cobain. REM will also be releasing the first album since their career-embracing In Time hits collection.

    So, the end of the road or the start of a new era? The final decision as always will rest with you, the listener. Unless of course Liam Gallagher has something to say about it...

      Oasis NME article

    THE ULTIMATE ROCK 'N' ROLL STARS ARE BACK

    Have Oasis still got it? This is the year they show us what they're made of. Here's the inside track on their crucial sixth album - straight from Noel Gallagher's mouth

    The year 1994 was the year Oasis. Ten years later ago this August, the M&S clad gang of Burnage hooligans released their first albu, the landmark 'Definitly Maybe'. It was the perfect distillation of the spirit of the times, a big-hearted, full throated celebration of cigerattes and alcohol, of sun-shee-ine, and the white lines.

    Now its 2004 and everything has changed. The Gallagher brothers are the only remaining members of Oasis, Noel Gallagher is a 36-year old father of one, Liam is happily coupled-up father of three (although the old madness is still there - he did karate chop an NME journalsit last year). The rock n roll landscape has been transformed from everyone from The Strokes to Dizee Rascal and the cultural mood of triumphant optimism has been replaced with something more downbeat. Is there still a place for Oasis?

    Their live popularity isn't in doubt. But Oasis have to keep coming up with the goods on record too.
    This autumn, we'll find out if they're still a force capable of of duking it out with the young bucks. Here, for the very first time, NME brings you the story so far of Oasis' most important album yet.

    ITS GOING TO BE A PSYCEDELIC ROCK N ROLL RECORD!Noel says the album - expected in September, with a single preceeding it in July, will be a concise, ten-song pyscedelic rock n roll record with no ballads, string sections or self-indulgence. He says he's aiming for a cross between Bob Dylan's 1965 classic 'Highway 61 revisited', The Rolling Stone's famously out-there album "Their satanic majasties Request" and The Stone Roses' 'The Stone Roses'.

    LIAM'S WRITTEN LOADS OF SONGS!

    "Much as it pains me to say it", Noel told NME, "Liams songs are amazing! I'm writing these six minute-long Champagne Supernova things and Liam's writing all these three minute pop songs. He's got the blues man. His new songs sound like The Yardbirds."

    One of them, "They ain't got nothing on me, they ain't got nothing on you" was written in a German cell, after a legendary fight in Munich in December 2002.

    SO HAVE NOEL, GEM AND ANDY!

    Gem and Andy have written a pair of songs, each of which, Noel says "I wish I'd written." As for cheif himself, Noel debuted "Stop the Clocks" at an acoustic show in Liverpool last February. Written at the end of the Heathen Chemistry sessions, its musically somewhere between Wonderwall and The Hindu Times, while the lyrics deal with lost love and growing old. It will definitly appear on the album, as will another called "Lord don't slow me down". Other rumoured titles include "Revolution Man" (a demo from the SOTSOG session), "Longer", "Singin Your Life", "You wanna feel my shame", "Say it", and "The Good rebel".
    After years of being Oasis' sole songwriter, Noel's now keen to delegate. "I'm 36 now but when your'e 21 and your single you can just sit and write songs all night", he said. "Whereas now I've got kids and this and that, I don't have the time to write as much as I used to. I was talking to Weller about this and his next album will be his 604th album or something, and what more is there left to fucking say? It's just a constant struggle to say the same thing differently.

    THEY'RE WORKING WITH DEATH IN VEGAS!Death in Vegas (Richard Fearless and Tim Holmes) teased out Liam Gallagher's best vocal performance in years on their own 2002 single "Scorpio Rising". "He's the greatest rock n roll singer in the world", said Fearless at the time.

    However, any suggestion that Oasis are "going dance" is well wide of the mark. In a recent interview with Manchester mag City Life, Noel said, " I was saying to Richard Fearless, 'We don't need anyone to produce it. The reason we want Death in Vegas to produce it is because we want you to, not because we need you to.' I'm quite capable of doing it myself, I can happily make a psycedelic rock record on my own. But I can't be fucking arsed this time.... why should I do all the fucking work?

    "Nobody else in the band wanted to use any outside producers, they all wanted me to produce it. Now I'd love to but I wouldn't feel comfortable telling other people, 'Now this song is shit and that it isn't going on the album.' So it was my idea to get someone who had no connections with the band and say 'Here's all the fucking songs, now do summat with it'. The rest of the band were pretty dead set against that for ages and ages. Trying to convince Liam was the hardest thing. He'd always be like 'What the fuck do producers do anyway? Sit there, drink coffee and tell you how shit you are."
    Recording begins this week in Noel's own studio on his Buckighamshire estate.

    IT'S GETTING TASTY OUT THERE!
    Over the past year, Noel has bigged up new acts from The Hiss to BRMC, showing his particular fondness for the new breed of Liverpool bands, such as The Stands . And he's less competitve than he once was. "To me", he told City Life, "the best band out there is Coldplay but were not really in competition with them. Chris Martin is a fucking genius as far as I'm concerned. But all in all, this has been a fucking dissapointing year for bands' second albums. Now I fucking love The Strokes, I love the way they look, I love what they stand for, I love the fucking drummer... but that second album? It's fucking dog's piss. And the same applies to BRMC and The Vines. They're top live but the music's shit.

    As for The Darkness, despite Liam liking them, Noel says: "I just find them really, really, inoffensive. I don't know why people hate them or like them. It doesn't do anything for me. I'd put them in the same category as The Flaming Lips, where it's like I'm not even sure whether the people who like them genuinely like them. For me, it's like, 'Come on you wierd cunt, Try and play without a 20 foot fucking vegetable jumping up and down behind you.' People go to a Flaming Lips gig to watch them, not listen to them. And I can't stand their fucking fans either - Cat Deeley bands - thats what the fucking Flaming Lips and The Darkness are, Cat Fucking Deeley bands! But nothing against Cat Deeley - I'm sure she's a very nice girl.

    IT'LL STILL BE BLOODY MASSIVE!While even Noel admits that "at some point you have to accept that music has moved on and you're not the cat's whiskers anymore", Oasis' fanbase will ensure the new album will be a smash. Just as well, since as Noel told NME, the bands enormous anthmes wouldn't fit any other context. "I think Oasis only really makes sense if it's played in front of 50,000 people. I think if its played on a pub it wouldn't make much sense. Size is an important part of Oasis. I couldn't imagine "Definitly Maybe" being some cult album only 50 people owned. I could never see us being The Jesus and Mary Chain. That was one of the first things we said to Alan McGee, I said 'Don't think your signing some band that's gonna be happy selling 30,000 albums and getting on Top of the Pops once, 'cos it ain't gonna be like that. We're going to to the top of the tree."
    After all this time, can Oasis stay there? Only the next 12 months will tell.

    Pretty Green - mens clothing from Liam Gallagher






      Darkness bites back....

    We've had Blur versus Oasis, Robbie versus Oasis, and now glam-rock twits The Darkness are getting in on the act.

    Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher recently called the Lowestoft rockers "inoffensive", adding: "I don't know why people hate them or love them. It doesn't do anything for me, and I'm not even sure whether the people who like them genuinely like them."

    Darkness singer Justin Hawkins has used a fan website to reply, posting: "Noel Gallagher is the most over-rated 'lead' guitarist in rock history."

    Ooh, get you.

      Marc Russel's wild about .....Republic of Loose

    Stand by for 'the most exciting new band since Oasis' and an exposed belly button with outstanding soul credentials, says Neil McCormick


    ......Republic of Loose's debut is an astonishing work of wit and soul, blurring musical boundaries in a distinctly 21st-century fashion, and I believe its sheer individuality will force it to wider attention.

    Confirmation that this does not just represent some peculiar aberration of McCormick family taste came for me when I met Oasis over the festive season and started raving about the record to Noel Gallagher. "Not you as well!" responded Noel, incredulously.

    It turned out that Oasis manager Marcus Russell has also been enthusing about the Republic of Loose, asserting that they are the most exciting new band he has seen since, well, guess who. "They're like Sly and the Family Stone meets Happy Mondays," was Russell's summation, which is as good as anything I can come up with. Remember where you read it first. (I love writing that sentence).

    Oasis go into the studio this month. Being one of the few critics not to have written them off as a creative force, I was heartened by Noel's enthusiasm for the new venture, which unites them with Death in Vegas, the maverick psychedelic-dance-rock production team who previously collaborated with Liam on the majestic single Scorpio is Rising. It's a collaboration that could push the Oasis sound into another realm, marrying their songwriting nous and unparalleled rock sensibility with the dark inventiveness of Richard Fearless's sonic imagination.
