      Back to the drawing board

    OASIS have gone "back to the drawing board" with the follow-up to ’HEATHEN CHEMISTRY’.

    The band, who headlined Glastonbury over the weekend (June 25), have been working on their sixth album for much of the year. They originally recruited producers Death In Vegas before ending the sessions, and have also been recording without drummer Alan White, who has left the band.

    Noel Gallagher told the BBC that "the moment has passed" for some of the songs that have been recorded so far, and Oasis will work on more new material before the album is released.

    He said: "We've got to decide what kind of record we're going to do now, because the record that we tried to make with Death In Vegas, that kind of didn't happen and the moment has passed for that batch of songs. So it's back to the drawing board really. Hopefully, it will be out by the end of the year but I wouldn't have thought so."

    Two new songs, titled ’A Bell Will Ring’, and ’The Meaning Of Soul’, were played at Glastonbury. A third unreleased song has also been played live in the past, titled ’Stop The Clocks’. A band source has told NME.COM that the band are happy with a number of songs already recorded for the album, but that all four members of the band are working on material.

    Pretty Green - mens clothing from Liam Gallagher






      Set lacked passion and originality ?



    OASIS headlined the Pyramid Stage of Glastonbury on Friday - but the reaction to their 70 minute set was decidedly mixed. Popular hits including Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova and Supersonic brought the end of the first day of the festival to a buzzing climax.

    But the Gallagher brothers failed to meet the high expectations of many eager fans. Despite delivering a series of crowd pleasers, mainly from their album Definitely Maybe, their performance was criticised by fans as lacking passion and originality. Festival founder Michael Eavis said the performance did not live up to his expectations. He said: "I'm an Oasis fan. I thought it was a good set but the two of them looked a bit grumpy and didn't talk to the audience at all. In that sense I was a bit disappointed."

    Meanwhile Scissor Sisters’ singer Ana Matronic was also left unimpressed, reportedly labelling the rockers "a tribute act to themselves." But Noel Gallagher told Radio One that “it was pretty good. I don't know though, cos my manager's not here and I trust his judgement more than anyone and he's not here but I think it was pretty good.”

    However, ex-Beatles drummer Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, impressed fans with his exciting performance.
    In their only major festival appearance this year, Liam, who wore a long white coat with a feather collar, dedicated Stop Crying Your Heart Out to the England football team.

      Oasis fail to surprise Glastonbury



    Oasis were the first band to headline the main stage at this year's Glastonbury Festival, but a lacklustre and uneventful performance prompted a mixed reception from fans. Having long cited The Beatles as a major influence, brothers Liam and Noel enlisted Ringo Starr's son Zak as their drummer for the night.

    But while the band's Friday appearance was boosted by a light show colourful enough for one of the world's largest festivals, there were no fireworks onstage. Their 70-minute set was a routine run-through of hits and fan favourites such as Live Forever, Champagne Supernova and Rock 'n' Roll Star. The fact that Noel dedicated Stop Crying Your Heart Out to England's defeated Euro 2004 football team was the only hint that the band had not been in hibernation for the past two years. The sole musical surprise came as the band performed an energetic cover version of The Who's My Generation.

    Out of sync

    An unsettling sound delay showed Liam singing on giant screens beside the stage before we heard the words coming from his mouth. Likewise Oasis seemed out of sync with the rest of the 21st Century music being performed elsewhere at Glastonbury. Despite the lack of excitement, Oasis received a warm reception from some Glastonbury revellers.

    "It was a good gig," said Matt Strong, 23, from Newport. Nothing unexpected happened but they are a good festivals band, with the whole crowd dancing, cheering and drinking."

    "Liam's white jacket was actually brighter than the stage lights," said Pete Fellows, 20, from Sussex. "You could have seen it from outer space." He added: "Zak Starr seemed like a better drummer than his dad."

    'Classic band'

    Twenty-two-year-old Becky Davies, from Cardiff, said: "It was great to see Oasis because they were a classic band playing their greatest songs. It was good to witness them in action." Liam and Noel just did not seem that into it, they didn't seem that involved.

    Her friend Carey Ringwood, 22, from Cardiff, added: "They were good but their set did not begin amazingly well. Liam and Noel just did not seem that into it, they didn't seem that involved. After a while things improved, though." The friends heard plenty of their favourite Oasis tunes but were left wanting renditions of She's Electric and The Masterplan.

    Liam's status as a compelling frontman remains intact, however, even as he rewarded the audience with little onstage banter. "He did look beautiful," said Berry White, 36, from Sussex. "Near the end of the show he put his tambourine on his head and walked down to the front to meet everybody."

    Long-time Oasis fan Kiernan Murphy, 34, from Sussex, was not as impressed. "I felt that they were just going through the motions," he said. "It was a very nostalgic gig, played to fans who liked the band 10 years ago."

      OASIS TRIUMPH AT GLASTO




    OASIS made their triumphant return to GLASTONBURY tonight (June 25) as they headlined the PYRAMID STAGE in front of a rapturous audience.

    The band, now joined by Ringo Starr’s son Zak on drums, also treated fans to a taste of what’s to come from their forthcoming sixth studio album.

    Opening the set with ’Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’, Liam Gallagher, dressed in a white parka jacket simply shouted to the crowd, ”Glastonbury”.

    Oasis ripped through a career-spanning set including the tracks ’Cigarettes & Alcohol’, ’Wonderwall’, ’Live Forever’, ’Stop Crying Your Heart Out’, ’Songbird’, ’Columbia’, ’Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and the set-closer - a cover of The Who’s ’My Generation’.

    The band also gave the Glastonbury crowd an idea of what to expect from their forthcoming as-yet-untitled sixth studio album, with the new tracks ‘A Bell Will Ring’, and ’The Meaning Of Soul’.

    Before playing ’Stop Crying Your Heart Out’, Liam told the audience: “We’d like to dedicate this one to the England football team”.

    Tonight was the first time that the band have played at Glastonbury since their headlining 1995 appearance, and marked their biggest outdoor show since their gig at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground in 2002.

    Last time Oasis took to the Glastonbury stage they were joined by Robbie Williams who, just after quitting Take That, came to the festival in 1995 and even joined the group onstage to dance.

    To warm-up for tonight’s performance Oasis played a warm-up show at Poole Lighthouse on Wednesday (June 23).

    Starkey was adding his skills on the drumkit following the departure of former sticksman Alan White earlier this year.

    Oasis are currently in the studio working on the follow-up to their last LP, ’Heathen Chemistry’.

    Tonight’s setlist was:

    ’Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’
    ’Bring It On Down’
    ‘Supersonic’
    ‘Morning Glory’
    ‘Columbia’
    ‘A Bell Will Ring’
    ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’
    ‘Little By Little’
    ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’
    ‘Live Forever’
    ‘The Meaning Of Soul’
    ‘Acquiesce’
    ‘Champagne Supernova’
    ‘Songbird’
    ‘Wonderwall’
    ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’
    ‘My Generation’

    SOME might have said Oasis are past it... but how wrong they were.

    The bad boys from Manchester took to the stage on Friday night with a point to prove and, unlike England, they didn't fluff their big moment.

    Put simply, Oasis once again proved they are still the best rock 'n' roll band we've got. And, oh, how they rock.

    There were few surprises in their 90-minute show but who cares?

    A cover of My Generation was awesome. Rock And Roll Star, What's The Story Morning Glory, Don't Look Back In Anger and Wonderwall reminded the audience that the Brothers Grim DID, at least, know how to write great songs once upon a time.

    There was even a tune dedicated to the England team, Stop Crying Your Heart Out, which led to a classic Glastonbury singalong.

    Dressed in an uber-trendy, white full-length parka, Liam was everything a true rock god should be. Noel was calmness personified and Andy Bell and Gem Archer played their roles to perfection.

    The revelation of the show, though, was Zak Starkey, who stepped in following the axing of Alan White.

    OK, if your dad's Ringo Starr you would hope to be a bit tasty banging the skins. And Zak - who usually drums for The Who - is something else. In fact, if the Gallaghers have any sense, they'll be pleading with Zak to take the role full time...and let him carry on breathing new life into the band.

      Growing older sees Oasis getting further apart

    EVEN before they became thirtysomethings, the Gallagher brothers, who provide the creative energy for Oasis, had what therapists call “issues” with each other. Now that Noel has reached 37 and Liam 31 it seems they can’t bear to be near one another when they are not on stage.

    The brothers rejected plans to put them in adjacent dressing rooms for their appearance at Glastonbury. Friends say that both fear that a row could jeopardise their biggest live performance in years: headlining on the festival’s main stage tonight.

    A friend said: “Everyone is quite shocked. Obviously, we are all aware there have been problems in the past, but they haven’t performed a gig this big for years. Everyone is surprised that they are so intent on staying apart.”

    The band’s PR company spokesman did not deny the story, adding: “I saw them both 12 hours ago and they were about two feet away from one another.” The pair have a long history of rows. Noel and Liam had to be pulled apart after coming to blows in their hotel just hours before a US show in 1996 and the rest of the tour had to be cancelled.

    Oasis were “spotted” by Michael Eavis, the Glastonbury Festival organiser, in 1993, after they sent him a demo tape. Two years later they were performing on the Pyramid stage, their last appearance at the festival. The presence of Sir Paul McCartney, the headline act on the Pyramid stage tomorrow night, is a particular pressure. Oasis, who have employed Ringo Starr’s son Zak as their drummer, have often compared themselves favourably with the Beatles.

    More than half of the 115,000 festival-goers had arrived by the end of yesterday, many turning the weekend event into an excuse for almost a week off work. Police estimated that some 52,000 had turned up by yesterday morning, and thousands more in time to see the England-Portugal game on big screens. Mr Eavis apologised for the chaotic ticketing system. Tickets were snapped up in just 22 hours, amid widespread complaints about jammed phone lines and websites.

    “I am very sorry that you had to work so hard to be able to get a ticket,” he said. “Next year we will have in place a system that will be much easier to use.”

      Euphoric atmosphere at Poole Lighthouse gig

    Oasis played a gig at Poole Lighthouse last night as a warm-up for their Saturday headline slot at Glastonbury.

    However, the football also crept in, with the crowd chanting 'Rooney, Rooney' before the set, and Oasis changing the words of 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' to 'Cigarettes and Football'.

    The rest of the set was also a real crowd pleaser with all the old favourites including, 'Rock and Roll Star', 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out', 'Wonderwall' with Liam on lead vocals, 'Morning Glory' and 'Live Forever' to name but a few.

    Oasis introduced new drummer Zak Starkey, Ringo Starr's son and he got a great reception - there were even rumours Ringo was in the audience alongside other celebrities such as Jude Law.

    They also debuted two new songs which were both very well received.

    One of them was 'A Bell Will Ring' which is along the lines of 'Live Forever' and "The Meaning of Soul" which was written by Liam who, although quiet on stage, didn't dampen the euphoric atmosphere.

      Poole audio clips

    A L4E members review of the Poole gig :

    Best Oasis gig I've been to (Shep's Bush, Finsbury, Nottingham, Brighton, Poole). The venue was tiny. Liam and Noel didn't really talk to each other but Liam was really enthusiastic about the gig. A Bell Will Ring was fantastic - you're right about it being like Who Feels Love? - but The Meaning Of Soul didn't sound great. Although it starts and ends very abruptly and sounded very cool I'm not sure if it has much substance really. Noel added at the end that Liam wrote it.

    Didn't notice and difference with Zak, he doesn't seem any better or worse than Alan. Liam introduced Morning Glory as a new song again and his voice was great. The Heathen Chemistry songs went down best.

    We'll get a boot soon so you can all hear for yourselves. Overall me and my 3 mates were all agreed on it being Oasis at their very, very best.

      'Greatest hits' and 2 new songs

    OASIS played their first gig of the year tonight - and gave their biggest hints yet to the songs they’ll be playing at this weekend’s GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL.

    The group warmed-up for this weekend’s headlining slot on the Pyramid Stage with a show at the Poole Lighthouse, Dorset (June 23).

    The gig is their first since a small run of dates in Germany and Ireland in March 2003, and their smallest UK show with the full band since 2002.

    The band’s 90 minute set was mainly comprised of greatest hits, but also featured two songs set to appear on their as-yet-untitled new album - ’A Bell Will Ring’ and ’The Meaning Of Soul’.

    ’A Bell Will Ring’ has been described by NME.COM’s reporter at the gig as a mid-tempo track in a similar vein to ’Live Forever’ or ’Songbrid’, while ’The Meaning Of Soul’, written by Liam, is a full on rock number reminiscent of ’Bring It On Down’.

    The set ended with a cover of The Who’s ’My Generation’.

    It was the first chance fans had to see new drummer Zak Starkey, who filled in for Alan White, who left the band earlier this year.

    The setlist ran:


    ’Fuckin’ In The Bushes’
    ’Rock & Roll Star’
    ’Bring It On Down’
    ’Supersonic’
    ’Morning Glory’
    ’Columbia’
    ’A Bell Will Ring’
    ’Stop Crying Your Heart Out’
    ’Little By Little’
    ’The Hindu Times’
    ’Cigarettes & Alcohol’
    ’Live Forever’
    ’The Meaning Of Soul’ ’Acquiesce’
    ’Champagne Supernova’
    ’Songbird’
    ’Wonderwall’
    ’Don’t Look Back In Anger’
    ’My Generation’

    Support were the Bees.

      Morrisey handed Icon Award by Noel Gallagher

    A whole list of musical heroes were honoured at the MOJO Awards in London yesterday (Tuesday).

    The magazine wanted to reward the legends who inspired and influenced musicians of today - and they certainly got a good turnout.

    James Brown was there to pick up the Lifetime Achievement Award, Mick Jones from the Clash got the Inspiraton Award and the Red Hot Chili Peppers were given the Maverick Award for producing consistently good music and honouring their staying power.
    And backstage they were as modest as ever: "Well, you know, it's tough being so handsome and talented and smart and everything. I'm just trying to work with it. It's tough. It's lonely at the top."

    Oasis can't wait for Glasto


    Morrissey was given the Icon Award by Noel Gallagher. The Oasis star had been tidying up at home before going to the awards bash and said the band are really looking forward to playing Glastonbury - especially as they'll have Zak Starkey - Ringo Starr's son - on the drums:

    "Great, you know. He's a really nice guy and he's a great drummer, and it'll be an honour for us to have one of The Beatles' kids in our band, you know""I'm looking forward to doing the gig. The bit leading up to the day, I don't like the hours leading up to these things. It can be a bit of a pain trying to get everyone in and all that ****, but the gig will be great and afterwards will be amazing!"

    ......

    OASIS are set to play their first gig of the year tonight - and NME.COM will be the first place to get a review!

    The group warm-up for this weekend’s headlining slot at Glastonbury with a show at the Poole Lighthouse, Dorset (June 23).

    The gig is their first since a small run of dates in Germany and Ireland in March 2003, and their smallest UK date with the full band since the start of 2002.

    It will also be the first chance fans will have to see new drummer Zak Starkey, who will be filling in for Alan White, who left the band earlier this year.

    Noel Gallagher recently said the band were planning on playing two new songs from their currently unfinished album during their Friday (June 25) night slot at Glasto, so there’s also a chance they’ll road test them tonight as well.

    He said: "We weren't going to do any (new songs) but we timed the set and we came up short. We were doing all the ones that we wanted to do and then the tour manager said 'That's about an hour', so I said 'How long do we have to play? And he said 'An hour-and-a-half'. We'll be doing two new songs I think."

    Click back to NME.COM tonight for the first setlist and report from the show, minutes after the Gallagher brothers have walked offstage.

      Gallaghers feud again

    Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher have stunned organisers at this year's Glastonbury Festival - by requesting to be kept as far apart as possible while off-stage.

    The temperamental twosome have endured a rocky relationship throughout the Live Forever band's 10-year career, but insiders say the recent rift is threatening the future of the rock outfit.

    And confirmation of just how bad the relationship between wildman Liam and his older brother came when Glastonbury bosses received a request not to put them in neighbouring dressing rooms for the show.

    A source told British newspaper the Daily Star: "Noel and Liam seem to have a real problem with being around each other.

    "Everyone is quite shocked. Obviously, we are all aware there have been problems in the past, but they haven't performed a gig this big for years.

    "Everyone is surprised that they are so intent on staying apart other than when they're on-stage. The Gallaghers very nearly didn't take part, so there is no way in the world they are going to upset them."

      Noel with Gorillaz ...?

    Noel reenacted an encounter with a clueless fan for Chris Moyle's radio show last week. The fan approached him at the recent England - France game wrapped in a Portugal flag. Went something like this:

    Fan: Are you gonna have a new album out ?

    Noel: Yes

    Fan: Will it be with the band or Gorillaz ?

    Noel : With the band but there will be a monkey singing all the songs ...

      Oasis: No Drugs at Glasto

    Glasto Live Cam


    Regular rock bad boys Liam and Noel Gallagher have insisted on a drugs free zone when they play at Glastonbury this week.

    The Oasis frontmen have told organisers at the music festival they do not want any trace of illegal substances backstage.

    The Gallaghers, who have been known for their bad boy image and divorces, say that is all behind them now - fatherhood has made them more mature.

    "They have done the whole bad-boy rock thing and now they are respectable adults with children," a source close to festival organisers told the Daily Star.

    "Glastonbury to them is the ideal place for them to show off the new Gallagher style and prove that they are back after such a long time away."

    But critics should not be so surprised by the new attitude. When the boys first made it famous, they scrubbed themselves up for a drinks evening at Downing Street hosted by Tony Blair.

      Oasis casualties

    To lose one band member is unfortunate, to lose three... The name remains the same, but the people around Oasis seem to just slide away. John Robinson surveys the casualty list



    Two out of five ain't bad: Whitey, Bonehead and Guigsy line up with the Gallaghers in 1996. Photo: David Sillitoe/Guardian


    Tony McCarroll
    Who? The band's first drummer, apparently expelled for a combination of the following reasons: his shoddy drumming; his often-referenced "punch-up in Paris" with Liam Gallagher; his arguable resemblance to someone from the Merseyside area.
    What's the story? The ousted McCarroll, buried by his bandmates in the Live Forever video, came back to haunt them. In 1999, after the departure of Guigsy and Bonehead, he even offered to rejoin as bass player. More seriously, that same year he was awarded £550,000 in a one-off payment against future royalties, prompting one tabloid to ask, "Is this the most stupid man in showbiz?"
    And then? In 2000, he debuted a new band, Raika, formed with his brothers. "I'm not interested in all that being-seen-on-a-yacht-with-Kate-Moss-business," he remarked. Which is probably just as well. Last sighted at the helm of another unsuccessful legal action.

    Alan McGee

    Who? Creation Records boss, who legendarily signed Oasis after seeing them at a gig in Glasgow.
    What's the story? Escort to Noel when Britpop drinks were held at 10 Downing Street, the public image of McGee and Oasis was as a very tight unit indeed. By 1999, though, he was moving in less grand circles, hearing the playback of the Go Let It Out single in the company of the Belgian licensee. "I thought, 'Fuck this for a game of soldiers'," said McGee. Liam countered by accusing McGee of spending the label's money signing "a load of dickheads".
    And then? McGee sets up the Poptones label which, initial losses aside, had the prescience to license the Hives. Now manages the Libertines. Well, someone's got to.

    Ian 'Robbo' Robertson

    Who? Ex-paratrooper bodyguard to the band. Wrote one of the first biographies of Oasis, called, as it would almost have to be, What's The Story? It is weirdly filled with quotes from Proust and the like.
    What's the story? Said eldest Gallagher brother, Paul: "Liam hated him after several incidents including being dragged out of bed one morning when he was entertaining, and being pushed up against the wall with no clothes on."
    Who? Excuse me Liam, since you're enjoying your evening out, would you mind if I took a... Ow! Not in the... OW!
    What's the story? Liam Gallagher has enjoyed a turbulent relationship with the gang of long-lensed money-printers that comprise the professional photography community. In March 1998, he cut his teeth on an amateur, clouting a backpacker with a camera in Brisbane. By November he was brawling with snapper Mel Bouzad in London. After a quiet couple of years, in 2001 there was a tussle at a Black Crowes aftershow in New York, and an altercation with photographer John Lillington in London.
    And then? In the main the scales of justice have weighed Liam's aggro leniently. It's worth mentioning, though, that in 2001 he was voted Madame Tussaud's "Most Hated And Feared Waxwork", romping home ahead of Saddam Hussein.

    Scott McLeod

    Who? Former member of Oldham band the Ya Ya's, fleetingly fancied in NME in 1993.
    What's the story? The Oasis life had taken its toll on Paul McGuigan by 1995, resulting in a bout of nervous exhaustion. Or as the ever-sensitive Bonehead called it, his throwing "a crispy". McLeod was drafted in, found it tough, then one morning, after a gig in Pittsburgh, left without warning on a plane back to England.
    And then? A couple of weeks later he phoned Noel to say he thought he'd made the wrong decision. "I think you have too," said Noel. "Good luck signing on."

    Alan White

    Who? Younger brother of Steve White, the longtime drummer with Paul Weller's band, "Whitey" was Oasis drummer from (What's The Story) Morning Glory? until the beginning of this year.
    What's the story? At present, it's hard to tell, with both parties tight-lipped about his departure. Whatever, the official explanation - White's ongoing hand problems, which surfaced as early as 1999 - seems a bit insubstantial. Or as White has deemed it, "bullshit".
    And then? One would imagine a lengthy legal wrangle. Always one to enjoy a drink on the town with Liam, White's involvement in last year's "German fiasco" (he was also detained by police) may be at the root of all this.

    Paul 'Guigsy' Guigan/ Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs

    Who? In a band led by two fighter aces, Guigsy and Bonehead were, as Peter Stringfellow memorably called them, "the tailgunners". One a deadpan football fan and pothead. One a man who chased two souvenir hunters down the street in his wife's nightie when they stole his doorknocker.
    What's the story? The making of Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants seems to have been the final straw for these two. Recorded under a Noel-imposed, Liam-calming prohibition, the strains start to show. One night Bonehead gets extremely drunk, breaks down a door and then leaves. Guigs is not far behind.
    And then? Noel is unmoved. "It's hardly Paul McCartney leaving the Beatles," he says. Bonehead (singer/songwriterly stylings) and Guigsy (dub-influenced noodling) have since been looking for deals.

    Noel and Liam Gallagher

    Who? To the newspaper-reading public, "The Battling Gallagher Brothers". To the rightly-enthused record-buying public, "the heart and soul of Oasis".
    What's the story? What began as the tale of a band's breathtaking ascent to greatness quickly became the soap opera of this two. Fights. Some storming off-stage. Some ruined American tours. Two broken marriages. Though the pair have come through the last 10 years reasonably unscathed physically (until Liam's altercation with some German estate agents, during which he lost two front teeth), they have their scars. The sole original members of the group, they are, as Noel has often said, "chained to each other".
    And then? The saga continues. Having quickly become the rock'n'roll stars they aspired in their best songs to be, the appetite for greatness quickly evaporated, but Noel and Liam retain a magnetic power for audiences. Sometimes it's like a car crash. Sometimes, though, it can still be magnificent.

    Cast no shadow

    A few did get out of the Oasis wars unscathed

    Richard Ashcroft
    Verve frontman, band chum, and inspiration for Cast No Shadow. Now writes songs about the missus, and lives happily ever after.

    Robbie Williams
    Feuds aside, "Robster" remains unharmed, not to mention the bigger draw. Sensibly moved to another country, mind.

    Matt Deighton
    Stand-in for Noel during brief fit of pique. In quick. Out quick. Sound judgment there from the former Acid Jazzer.

    Paul Weller
    Spiritual leader, guest artist, man of fine footwear. Still plays grumpily to large devotional assemblies of bellowing dads.

    Damon Albarn
    Didn't like him much, did they? However, unlike other people we could mention, he still makes good records.

      Liam sour, Noel joking...



    Liam Gallagher went on a shopping spree in Spain - then lost his luggage.

    Brother Noel says: "Liam's not in a good mood. Some baggage handler is larging it in a furry parker and big shades."

    The OASIS pair headline Glastonbury this month.

    Noel told Radio 1: "If I ramble in between songs it's to stretch it out. We'll only be doing two new songs."

      Noel: We'll play 2 new songs at Glasto

    NOEL GALLAGHER has revealed OASIS will play new material during their headlining at GLASTONBURY

    Gallagher explained that the band are planning on playing two new songs from their currently unfinished album during their Friday (June 25) night slot, but the decision to include them did not come out of choice.

    "We weren't going to do any (new songs) but we timed the set and we came up short!" he explained to Chris Moyles on Radio 1. "We were doing all the ones that we wanted to do and then the tour manager said 'That's about an hour', so I said 'How long do we have to play? And he said 'An hour-and-a-half'. We'll be doing two new songs I think."

    Oasis will play a sold-out warm-up show two days before their Glastonbury appearance at Poole Lighthouse, Dorset on June 23.

      Short set of Oasis classics planned for Glasto


    Oasis have announced they’ll be playing a one-off gig ahead of Glastonbury next month.

    Noel Gallagher has been talking to Chris Moyles about Oasis' upcoming Glastonbury performance. He dropped into the Radio One villa in Portugal this morning after watching the England match last night. But he is flying back to the UK tonight to carry on rehearsing for their headlining performance.

    They haven't played Glastonbury for almost ten years and Noel told us what we should expect from their set: "The last time we played Liam managed to talk me into doing six or seven songs from 'Morning Glory', which we had just finished the night before, and it sort of fell a bit flat." "We won't be doing too many new songs this time round so it should be alright."

    "Actually, we weren't going to do any, but we started rehearsing, and we timed the set and it come up short." "We were doing all the ones we wanted to do and then the tour manager said 'Well, that was about an hour', and so we said ' Well how long do we have to play for?' and he said it was about an hour and a half."

    "So, if people are there and I look like I'm rambling between songs - that's just to stretch it out."

      Special Noel interview

    Noel Gallagher speaks exclusively to Glynn Pegler in a special interview for the Glastonbury Festival website.

    Picture this; it's a hot sunny day, you’ve got yourself comfortable on a nice patch of shaded grass for a bit of a chill out when you notice a familiar looking Mancunian, donning sunglasses, swaggering confidently over. In this case the man in question, dressed discreetly in a white tee and blue faded jeans, is a music icon; part pioneer of the so-called ‘Brit pop’ music genre, and part all round contemporary rock music legend in his own right. His name, as he reliably informs me when he introduces himself, is Noel. And he’s brought with him two pints of cold beer. Sweet as!

    Not known as a particularly forthcoming person when it comes to press interviews, (and fair enough, he’s done enough of them), it comes as a bit of a surprise that it was Noel who decided to talk to us, unaided by PR or record company pressures and currently in between albums, he comments to long-term girlfriend (Sara), now standing proudly beside her man, that he thinks the other journos who have been clustering around him are “pretentious t***s” and as “they” (me and my colleague) “aren’t up their own arses”, he doesn’t mind speaking to us. Nice of him to say so. Anyway, I digress. Read on for a few of the Glastonbury related gems revealed during the interview and find our what our kid Noel had to say on whats next for Oasis and some of the people he thinks we should watch out for in 2004.

    Before we start, remember if you will, just a few things: Oasis are a band who on their own sell 120,000 tickets in just a few hours. In just one world tour they performed to a combined audience of 1.2 million people across some 23 different countries. They are one of the most successful music acts of all time, and they’re here for you, at Glastonbury 2004.

    Currently in the studio recording what is now their sixth album, Oasis are taking some time out to headline at this years festival, silencing the critics with their first major gig for months. With a special 10 year celebration DVD released in September and the new album to follow shortly after, Oasis have got a lot to shout about. So, why choose Glastonbury and what makes it so special for them? If you weren’t a fan before - and lets face it how could you not be? - but if you weren’t, then put any pre-conceptions painted by the press of Noel and Oasis’ supposedly increasingly bizarre behaviour aside as all notions of this kind of behaviour are immediately dispelled as it becomes clear that in fact, as many of their hardcore fans already know, Noel Gallagher is a pretty top bloke...

    Noel, Glastonbury Festival; how would you describe it to someone who maybe hasn’t ever been before?
    Glastonbury Festival is something very, very, very special. Everything you’ve ever heard about it still can never really prepare you for the whole event once you get here and it can’t ever really be put into words. (Smiles a cheeky grin), And if there are good bands on at the same time, its even better.

    Which festival acts would you suggest people make sure they get along to see?
    As far as line-ups go, having Morrissey there makes a festival for me. I’m looking forward to seeing Kings of Leon. (Second on the bill, playing just before Oasis on the Friday night - Ed). They’re a really good band. The Stands are a great live band also.

    As a festival regular now, have you got any stories from Glastonbury Festivals past that you can legally share with us?
    (Laughs and thinks for a LONG time). The first year I came here I remember sitting up in one of the fields somewhere and it was about half past one on the Saturday afternoon. I had been at the festival since the Friday and all I remember from then is being tapped on the shoulder on that Saturday afternoon and turning around to see that it was two official looking chaps who had come to tell me that I was due to play on the stage in about 15 minutes! (Laughs) I spent my time then trying to convince them that i’d played the day before. I didn’t know where I was, I was out of it, (sunstroke perhaps? - Ed) but I got there in the end and it was great!

    How was it for you when you popped your Glastonbury cherry?
    I could take that question some well rude places, man! (Grins). Seriously though, the first time at Glastonbury is always the best. The second time there’s not quite the same impact but perhaps you enjoy it more, although you don’t have the surprise of seeing just how many people there are there, and how big it is. You know your way around though when you go the second time, and in the Glastonbury environment, thats a definite advantage.

    We’ve heard lots of different stories about Oasis taking a new direction with the sound on the next album, whats the latest?
    We’re all in the studio writing separately at the moment and we don’t put timescales on these things anymore. We’ve all got stuff thats sounding really good now. I’m really proud of Liam with some of the stuff he’s been writing and the album will be ready when its ready. Its just one of those things and we’ve never listened to the pressure that other people try to put on us, just hopefully deliver the goods in the end, in our own time and in our own way.

    All bands seem to get on the collaboration bandwagon at some point or another, is there anything new like this in the pipeline for Oasis?
    Well, if we could collaborate with anyone, for me it would be Neil Young. I’d only choose Neil Young slightly above Morissey because for me they’re both legends in my house and I think it would be really cool. There’s nothing sorted in the form of a collaboration as yet.

    What do you think of the current trend by the majority of the music press in constantly feeling the need to pigeon-hole bands and put them all under a certain label, which if you don’t fit sometimes means you're not acceptable?
    Pigeon-holing bands is a sign of the times. Its the 21st century and this is a sad sign of the times and I think that its really bad that this is the way that the music industry is going. You have to have a badge on you that labels you by the rest of music industry before you’re accepted and its not just about the music anymore, its got to be either one thing or another and thats really bad for the whole industry. Don't even get me started on all that Pop Idol shite either - more bands like The Stands, The Bandits and Basement; that's what the UK needs right now. Thats just my opinion though and people can always take it or leave it.

    Whats your opinion of Glastonbury in comparison to other festivals?
    They should actually ban all other festivals and just hold Glastonbury for a whole week at the end of August each year and make it the people’s festival.

    The rest of the festivals out there don’t even match up. -The rest of the festivals are all only good until you’ve been to Glastonbury, and then once you’ve been to Glastonbury you think well (clenches fist and sticks middle finger up) to everything else! All the other events are gigs - Glastonbury is a festival; the other festivals are just big gigs in a field and Glastonbury is a proper festival. The mother of all festivals!

    You can see Noel, little bro Liam and the rest of Oasis performing live on the Pyramid Stage, Friday night, headline slot at Glastonbury 2004. If you weren’t one of the lucky people to get a ticket this year, you can catch the whole thing live on the good old BBC; one not to miss!

    On 6th September 2004, Oasis release ‘Definitely Maybe – The DVD’ to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of this landmark album’s release. Including rare vinyl-only track ‘Sad Song’, the DVD also contains over four hours-worth of archive and new footage, including an hour-long documentary about the recording of the album featuring interviews with the band, label, friends and entourage. Memorable live and TV performances of ‘Definitely Maybe’s twelve era-defining tracks and more extras besides make up the rest of what is a treasure chest of classic Oasis music and footage.

      Noel's Glasto tips

    NOEL GALLAGHER has given his tips for this year’s GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL and said the band’s new album will be "ready when it’s ready".

    Oasis headline the Pyramid Stage at this year’s festival. Speaking on the official festival website, Noel said that this year he’ll be looking forward to seeing Morrissey, The Stands and Kings Of Leon, who are on just before their headline slot.

    Noel revealed: "Glastonbury Festival is something very, very, very special. Everything you’ve ever heard about it still can never really prepare you for the whole event once you get here and it can’t ever really be put into words. "As far as line-ups go, having Morrissey there makes a festival for me. I’m looking forward to seeing Kings Of Leon. They’re a really good band."

    Noel also revealed what the festival has meant for him in the past. He continued: "The first year I came I remember sitting up in one of the fields somewhere and it was about half past one on the Saturday afternoon. I had been at the festival since the Friday and all I remember from then is being tapped on the shoulder on that Saturday afternoon and turning around to see that it was two official looking chaps who had come to tell me that I was due to play on the stage in about 15 minutes! I spent my time then trying to convince them that I’d played the day before. I didn’t know where I was, I was out of it, but I got there in the end and it was great."

    The band are currently working on a new album, which is scheduled for either late this year or at the start of next. In the interview Noel said the band are "all in the studio writing separately", and that the album will be "ready when its ready". The band warm-up for the festival with a sold out gig at the Poole Lighthouse (June 23).

      Gallaghers Guest On New Prodigy Album

    The first album of new material from The Prodigy in seven years will feature a guest appearance from Noel and Liam Gallagher from Oasis.

    The album titled 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned' will be released on August 16. The album will be a star-studded affair with Princess Superstar, Kool Keith, Twista and Juliette Lewis also making appearances.

    The last album from The Prodigy was 'Fat of the Land' in 1997. It featured the controversial 'Smack My Bitch Up' as well as the song 'Firestarter', recently covered by Gene Simmons of Kiss on his solo album. 'The Fat of the Land' was a platinum album in the USA. Collectively, The Prodigy have sold more than 600,000 units in Australia alone.

    +++

    LIAM GALLAGHER’s long-rumoured guest appearance on the next PRODIGY album has been confirmed – and his brother NOEL appears on the same song. The Oasis singer has long been touted as a guest on the long-awaited ’Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned’, which is released on August 16.

    However, the tracklisting has now been finalised, and Liam Gallagher’s contribution has definitely made the final cut. Also, his brother Noel plays bass on the song, which is called ’Shoot Down’. Other collaborators include Princess Superstar, Kool Keith, Twista and Hollywood actress Juliette Lewis, who recently told NME.COM how the collaboration came together.

    She said: "I went to England. I didn’t want to do the taping, that was too frustrating. I wanted to know what Liam (Howlett) had in mind. I wanted to get closer to him and collaborate in a real way. We had an amazingly creative process. "I think what [Liam] is doing is really amazing because he’s not trying to repeat old successes with the Prodigy. He’s actually taking it up a notch."

      "DEFINITELY MAYBE" DVD release date

    Oasis Looks Back With 'Definitely' DVD

    Oasis is eyeing a Sept. 6 release date for "Definitely Maybe -- The DVD," commemorating the 10-year-anniversary of the U.K. rock act's debut album of the same name. While full details have not been announced, the package will apparently include the original album, augmented by the rare B-side "Sad Song."

    Of greater interest to fans will be four hours of archival and new footage, an hour-long documentary about the "Definitely Maybe" recording sessions, concert and TV performances of such singles as "Live Forever" and "Supersonic" and interviews with band members and associates.

    Earlier this year, the band solicited photos and videos from the "Definitely Maybe" era for potential inclusion in the new project, but it is unknown if any of this material made the final cut.

    Although not an immediate smash in the United States, "Definitely Maybe" eventually reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and has sold 742,000 copies here, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It set the stage for Oasis' full-scale assault on North America with 1995's "(What's the Story) Morning Glory," which has sold 3.6 million copies.

    The Noel and Liam Gallagher-led band has kept a low profile over the past year while working on its next studio album. The group will return to the live stage June 23 in Dorset, England, as a precursor to an appearance two days later at the annual Glastonbury Festival.

      Glastonbury not a classic this year ?

    The full Glastonbury line-up has scarcely been announced, and already the sound of dissenting voices can be heard. There are complaints that Friday-night headliners Oasis are apparently not going to perform any new material, despite a two-year gap since the release of their last album, Heathen Chemistry. There are derisive sniffs that 2004's biggest act, Paul McCartney, no longer constitutes the musical cutting edge to which Glastonbury should aspire. [....]


    [....] Given the grumbling, it will be intriguing to see how McCartney's set-closing performance of Hey Jude is greeted by the Glastonbury audience. As a euphoric mass singalong? As one of those legendary "Glastonbury moments" when worries about the outside world and the state of the festival toilets briefly evaporate, to be replaced by an fleeting few seconds of transcendent happiness? Or with disappointed yells of "No! This no longer constitutes the musical cutting edge! We demand to hear avant-garde, techno, grime and free jazz!"? Time will tell. As for Oasis, going by the standard of their last three albums, the paucity of new material in their set counts as a small mercy. In fact, if Eavis could inveigle Noel Gallagher into signing a document agreeing that Oasis play no material whatsoever dating from after 1995, then Friday night would look even more promising....

    If you can't find anything you like at Glastonbury, you clearly hate every aspect of popular music in 2004. You may perhaps be better off staying at home.

      Bono : No plans for Live Aid II

    BONO has dismissed tabloid reports that he's planning on organising a LIVE AID II concert next year to help with Third World Debt.

    The Sun newspaper (May 31) quoted Government sources as saying the U2 singer is hoping to organise the event next summer, backed by Prime Minister Tony Blair.

    Not true, according to the man himself. Speaking in Dublin today (June 1), where he was meeting with EU leaders, he said: "At this point there are no plans for a Live Aid 2. It's always there in the background but right now, no. Right now we're after billions (of dollars) not millions. A Live Aid 2 would help, but it wouldn't fix the problem."

    The original Live Aid took place in 1985 in Britain and the US, and saw appearances from the likes of Queen and David Bowie. It raised tens of millions of pounds for Africa which was suffering a catastrophic famine.

    The newspaper also said that Bob Geldof, who organised the 1985 event, could also be involved in 2005. He's also said he won't be taking part.

    He said in a statement: "I told The Sun this afternoon it was not true. This only serves to undermine the concerted efforts of those concerned with the tragedy of poverty in Africa. However, if the Prime Minister wants to organise a Live Aid II, then good luck to him."

      Glasto finally official !

    Not really News for us anymore but here it is:

    Oasis and Macca lead Glasto line-up

    The waiting and the rumours are over - the line-up for this year's Glastonbury Festival has finally been revealed.

    Oasis, Kings of Leon, PJ Harvey, Groove Armada and Elbow will be among the acts on the Pyramid Stage on Friday. On Saturday it'll be graced by, among others, Paul McCartney, Black Eyed Peas, Starsailor, Lostprophets and Scissor Sisters. On Sunday you can catch Muse, Morrissey, The Libertines, James Brown and Joss Stone.


    On the Other Stage, highlights will include The Chemical Brothers, Goldfrapp, Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, Jet, Basement Jaxx, Damien Rice, The Von Bondies, Orbital (for their last ever England gig), Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Belle and Sebastian.

    Acts to appear in The Dance Tent include Dave Clarke, Kosheen, DJ Fergie, Tim Deluxe, Sister Sledge, Scissor Sisters, Stanton Warriors and Goldie Lookin' Chain.


    In the New Tent, Spiritualised, The Bees, Zero 7, Tim Booth, Hope of the States, The Killers, The Stills, Television and The Broken Dolls will be among the many acts to perform.

    Fergie, Fabio and Grooverider, Seb Fontaine and The Essential Mix will also be playing live for Radio 1. Basement Jaxx haven't played Glastonbury for a few years so they're really excited to be in the 2004 line-up: "The last time we played there was 2000 and that was a momentus occasion." "It was definitely one of the best gigs we've done. The most exciting because it's a real seminal festival. It feels like it's special going there." "It's like the English Woodstock isn't it? It's been there for years, it was started by hippies, and it's still got a bit of realness. It's still got some grit."
