      Liam makes Church's drinking buddy list

    It’s no secret that Charlotte Church likes a tipple or two on occasion.

    Normally she’s sprawled all over the tabs in snaps of her with her troop of taffy tarts hitting the clubs in her hometown of Cardiff. Charl’s revealed her top six star suppers who she’d love to down a few with.

    Despite his groomed girlie look, apparently her rugger bugger boyf Gavin Henson makes the cut. (We sense favouritism, surely Charlotte could drink him under the table?!)

    According to the Sun, Charlotte likes her funnybone to be tickled on a night out – she says she’d like to have a drink with funnymen James Nesbitt, Lee Evans and Paul O’Grady.

    Charl also reckons Posh would be a great boozing bud. “I’d quite like to see Victoria trollied. I think she’d be quite funny.”

    And her number one lager lout would be Liam Gallagher.

    Rumour is that Liam wouldn’t say no to a few bevs with the Crazy Chick: “She could be the next Liam. She’s got a great voice. She knows how to get hammered and she freaks people out.”

    Watch out Gav, a night out with Liam and Charlotte could get messy.

      Noel Gallagher lashes out at Rappers

    Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has launched a scathing attack on modern hip-hop artists for their violent and misogynistic lifestyle.

    Gallagher reckons the current wave of rap and R&B stars are badly dressed, sexist and hypocritical and branded them "idiots".

    He said: "What's masquerading itself as hip-hop-slash-R&B is horrible. These guys will go on the telly going, 'Hey kids, stay in school, don't do drugs,' and then they'll be shooting each other down at the shopping mall.

    The Mancunian fumed "The disregard for women, stuff like that, I find it quite sickening. And the clothes they wear, and it's all about 'Me, me, me.' Give it a rest you bunch of idiots."

      Oasis and Kasabian to team-up

    Night on the booze leads to collaboration plans

    Oasis and Kasabian are set to collaborate together - unless they were just drunk when the idea came-up.

    The bands, who are currently touring America together, have discussed working on some songs, though Oasis leader Noel Gallagher admitted that might have been the beer talking.

    "A lot of things are said in dressing rooms at 4 o'clock in the morning when you're drunk," Gallagher told MTV. "We're talking about doing some stuff with them, but I don't know that anything will come of that."

    However the sobered-up, the guitarist added in the cold light of day he still hoped the two bands would link-up.

    "They are more than welcome in my studio, and there's a chance I might be doing some songs," said Gallagher. "I hope it does [happen] - it will be great."

    As previously reported on NME.COM, Kasabian plan to enter the studio on their return from the tour with Oasis, something guitarist Serge Pizzorno says his band are really looking forward to.

    "It's nice to just sit in a studio and start crafting and working things out," he explained. "We are so full of ideas - 'difficult second album' has even entered our heads."

      Oasis dominate Q award nominations


    LONDON (Reuters) - British rock band Oasis have returned to the musical spotlight with five nominations for the 2005 Q awards, the organisers said on Tuesday.

    The Manchester band won their first Q award in 1994, taking the Best New Act title before being named the Best Act In The World Today just two years later.

    Oasis were nominated for five awards including Best Track and Best Album for their latest release "Don't Believe The Truth", which Q magazine described as "their most focussed, reflective and relaxed album to date".

    Another British band, Coldplay, were nominated for four awards while singer James Blunt, American group Green Day and Irish rockers U2 received three nominations each.

    Coldplay will be looking to take the Best Album category having won the title for "Parachutes" and "A Rush of Blood to the Head" in 2000 and 2002 respectively.

    The awards, which will be hosted at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Monday October 10, are one of the few music industry prizes voted for by the record-buying public.

      Oasis wrap up West Coast gigs

    The band play a triumphant set at the KROQ Inland Invasion...

    Oasis wrapped up their final date of the West Coast leg of their American tour with a triumphant set at Los Angeles radio station KROQ's Inland Invasion on Saturday (September 17).

    The band, who performed a sold out gig at the Hollywood Bowl earlier in the week, returned to the Southern California area to thrill nearly 60,000 fans with an hour long set.

    A host of artists including members of The Bravery, Jet and Weezer stayed on following their sets to watch the group's performance made up of classics including 'Lyla', 'Wonderwall', 'Champagne Supernova', 'Don't Look Back In Anger', and 'Live Forever', which frontman Liam Gallagher dedicated to hurricane ravished New Orleans.

    frontman Tom Meighan also stayed on past his event-opening set missing his scheduled ride to Phoenix[/B] on Sunday (September 18) to catch the rock giants.

    "I was supposed to go on the Jet tour bus and their tour manager was like, 'We're going now!' I went 'Nah, I'm fucking staying. I want to watch Oasis,'" he told NME.COM. "They were pulling me going, 'We're going now!' and I'm going 'Nah, I'm going to get a flight tomorrow,' but I did stay behind to watch Oasis."

    Oasis' performance capped off the day long event billed by KROQ as the "last festival of summer". Other highlights of the show included a greatest hits set by Beck, a jolly mid-afternoon ska romp by Madness, Bloc Party on the side stage and Weezer battling through sound difficulties to play for the fans.

      Oasis still conjures the magic...

    ....., minus the hype

    A kinder, gentler Oasis? An Oasis without the tabloid sideshows? An Oasis minus the bratty interviews and cocky bombast?
    Well, yes. Kind of.


    No fears — the British quartet hasn’t become Up With People. But today’s Oasis is certainly a tempered version of the band that a decade ago earned a reputation both noteworthy and notorious, thanks to a double whammy of exemplary rock and offstage raucousness. Those were the whirlwind years, a swirl of hype and hits whose personal impact, says leader Noel Gallagher, is only now being properly absorbed by the band.

    Now, as Oasis traverses America on a tour, the vibe is different. Where the Oasis story once played out in a very public way, band members’ lives have been steadily tucked behind the scenes. There are wives, kids, domestic comforts — and a new album that has been resuscitating the musical reputation of Gallagher and his brother Liam.

    On the new "Don’t Believe the Truth," released in May, "the new songs are better than the last set of songs," says Noel Gallagher in requisitely wry fashion. "In that sense, we’ve grown."

    The emphasis, in other words, is back on the music, a move that has pleased Gallagher and those fans who feared that the creative abilities of Oasis had become a mirage. While the heady days of "Definitely Maybe" and "(What’s the Story) Morning Glory" came with all sorts of amusing tabloid fodder, Gallagher says, they were also full of distractions — drugs and alcohol not the least among them — that caused subsequent work to suffer.

    Noel Gallagher, Oasis’ chief songwriter and frequent voice of reason, says it wasn’t until years later that he was able to put that era into perspective.

    "I’m only looking back on that period now. People are still talking about ’95 and ’96 — two years," he says. "When I look back, I think, ‘What an amazing time.’ Back then, you’re too close to it."

    Gallagher concedes the dramas came with a price.

    "At the time, I thought it was quite embarrassing," he says. "Now, looking back, I’m kind of relieved it didn’t overshadow the music, which is kind of cool. If I have one regret, it’s that we should have taken two years off after ‘Morning Glory’ instead of going right back into the studio and the madness."

    The result was "Be Here Now," a mixed-bag album that launched an erratic creative stretch for Oasis.

    Gallagher, who used to unflinchingly proclaim Oasis the universe’s best band, has adopted a stance more suited for the world of 2005. With the critical and commercial success of "Truth," which debuted at No. 12 on Billboard’s U.S. chart, it’s clear he feels grateful to have survived not only the public’s volatile tastes, but his group’s own high-profile follies.

    The album is carried by some of the most accomplished songwriting of Gallagher’s career. And though it’s typically derivative it’s also refreshingly Oasis, at times evoking the soaring feel that had been missing for years.

    Gallagher is proud that the record sounds relevant, recapturing the vibrance of earlier Oasis work while brimming with a sense of immediacy.

    "I think that once a new generation comes along, it’s difficult for bands like us from previous generations to carry on," says Gallagher, 38.

    Music’s tectonic plates have shifted considerably since Oasis stormed onto the British landscape in 1994, triumphed in America the next year, and inserted the term "Britpop" into the musical lexicon. Most significantly, rock has seen its position eroded, its cultural currency grabbed up by hiphop and dance-pop music. In the UK press, the pages once dominated by the brothers Gallagher are now occupied by Kylie Minogue and Justin Timberlake.

    "That’s the challenge for us — to keep a level of interest so that the albums aren’t just advertisements for the tours," says Gallagher. "Our albums still matter. I don’t mean that in the scheme of ‘It’s gonna change music.’ I mean that when somebody buys a new Rolling Stones album, they don’t give a (damn) — they just want to see them on tour. When people buy our records, it still means something."

    ROLLING Stone Keith Richards has been voted the biggest hell-raiser in rock. The 61-year-old veteran beat competition from young pretenders like Pete Doherty.

    Crack addict Pete Doherty, Babyshambles frontman and boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss, came fourth.

    Former Voice of an Angel Charlotte Church was ninth. At 19 she is the youngest on the list, but her partying has put hardened hell-raisers to shame.

    Among her admirers is Liam Gallagher, who said: "She could be the next Liam. She knows how to get f***ing hammered." Liam and his brother Noel complete the list at number 10.

    Top 10 Living Hell-Raisers:

    1 Keith Richards

    2 Courtney Love

    3 Ozzy Osbourne

    4 Pete Doherty

    5 Shaun Ryder

    6 Tommy Lee

    7 Johnny Rotten

      The band play their biggest Los Angeles show yet

    Oasis pay tribute to hurricane victims at gig

    Oasis paid tribute to victims of Hurricane Katrina last night as they played their biggest ever show in Los Angeles (September 12).

    The Manchester outfit were performing for the first time at the city’s Hollywood Bowl , when midway into their set, frontman Liam Gallagher paused to pay tribute to one of the locales affected by the tragedy.

    "The next one’s for the people in New Orleans ," he said simply before the group launched into 'Live Forever' .

    The band played a 90-minute set including the likes of 'Lyla', 'Champagne Supernova' , 'Wonderwall' , 'Don’t Look Back in Anger' and 'Rock 'N' Roll Star' .

    Before the group’s last song – their traditional cover of The Who classic 'My Generation' - guitarist Noel Gallagher took time to recognize Oasis reaching the landmark venue after over a decade of playing live the USA.

    "It’s nice to get here after all the years of fucking about in nightclubs," he laughed before dedicating the cover to "people of Mexican origin".

      Oasis, Kaisers and Franz in frame for Ibiza festival

    Ibiza is set to get its own rock festival in 2006 : Ibiza rocks


    Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Hard-Fi and Goldfrapp are being lined up for the three-day event next June. Bands will play outdoor stages and the 10,000 capacity club Manumission.

    Club bosses are taking advantage of Glastonbury's year off in 2006. Michael Eavis is giving the fields and villagers a break from the festival. Bands and fans are likely to be tempted by the sun and sea. Kaiser Chiefs and Maximo Park played the Ibiza rocks series of gigs on the white island this summer.

    Nick Baines of Kaiser Chiefs said: "It's a great idea to give kids a package deal where they can come to a festival from all across Europe. "It has the appeal of Glastonbury with great music but you are guaranteed great weather."

    Bands are being booked to play Ibiza due to the decline in popularity of dance music.

    Andy McKay of Manumission said: "At last we have 18-year-olds bringing energy back into Ibiza, which is vital if it is to stay central to youth culture. Name me the superstar DJ who can sell as many tickets as these new rock bands?

    "We are ready to up the ante and Ibiza will stage a three-day live music festival next summer. The sites have been identified and discussions are taking place with artists."Glastonbury is not happening so there is a window of opportunity next June. But we want the festival to become an annual event." Bands will also be able to play into the early hours thanks to Ibiza's relaxed licensing laws.

      Oasis ranked 5th in festival poll

    Foo Fighters Triumph In Festival Poll


    NME’s annual Festival poll has culled the opinions of 10,000 of its readers about who were the best bands during this year’s festival season, with Foo Fighers topping the list and Babyshambles failing in remarkable style…


    The new poll featured in this week’s edition of the NME collated the votes of over 10,000 readers to find out how this year’s festival season fared against previous summers and
    which bands were the most, and least impressive.

    Pleasingly enough nearly half of the readers polled (45%) named 2005 the best summer ever for live music, but despondingly only 25% of people admitted to having sex at Glastonbury (also voted the best music event of 2005) this year. Last year nearly half the punters asked said they found time to romp – then again, the weather was hardly conducive to that kind of thing.

    As for the best bands, there’s a predictably strong showing for Pixies and Oasis in fourth and fifth position, while Kasabian and Arcade Fire were judged equal second but Foo Fighters romped home with 16% of the vote as the best band of the festival year.

    Sadly for Pete Doherty, with 13% of the vote Babyshambles were voted the worse festival attraction of the year, that said, Oasis were voted the second most useless festival act, just ahead of Razorlight and Iron Maiden.

    Interestingly, equal seventh were the uber-popular Kaiser Chiefs and the universally loathed Maroon 5, which goes to proved how enormously confusing these polls can be and how fickle the gig-going (i.e. you) public is.

      Noel : 'Music is all I'm good at...'

    The rock diet plan

    Oasis' Noel Gallagher: 'Music is all I'm good at. If I wasn't doing this, I'd just be getting fat at home'

    Oasis (performing with Jet and Kasabian Wednesday at Coors Amphitheatre) has something new for its summer album: songs by everybody in the band.

    The things you hear about the brothers in the British rock group Oasis – that they're bratty and offensive and they love to brawl – those things are all pretty much the truth.

    In the more than 10 years that Liam and Noel Gallagher have been playing Beatles-tinged rock together, they've done the following: started feuds with other bands, canceled concerts on a whim, stormed off TV interviews and insulted each other on stage.

    And still, fans can't get enough of their rock-star behavior.

    Even now, at age 38, Noel Gallagher still loves to bash the bands he hates, such as current media darlings (and competition) Bloc Party: "It's amazing that bands like Bloc Party get record deals," he said by phone while vacationing with his girlfriend in Cabo San Lucas. "You've seen a photograph of them, right? You look at photographs of these people and think 'How does that happen?'"

    Thanks to its heavily publicized feuds with fellow Brits Blur and most recently the Libertines, Noel Gallagher has become as natural at rattling off attention-grabbing quotes as he is at writing anthemic rock songs.

    Look, here's another one:

    "I have not heard a masterpiece of British music since (Coldplay's debut) 'Parachutes,'" he said. "There are about a dozen bands, like Franz Ferdinand, who have great songs but have yet to make great albums."

    It's easy to see why Noel Gallagher's standards are set so high.

    Since forming in the early 1990s, Oasis has sold 34 million albums around the world. Its first release, "Definitely Maybe," was the fastest-selling debut album in British history. And its second disc, "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" released in 1995, continues to be one of Britain's top three albums of all time.

    "I don't think we can achieve anymore in terms of record sales," said Noel Gallagher. "If I had something better to do, I'd probably do it. But music is all I'm good at. If I wasn't doing this, I'd just be getting fat at home."

    As the group's guitarist and main songwriter, Noel Gallagher is the one responsible for penning practically every one of the band's Top-10 hits, including "Live Forever" and "Wonderwall."

    After being turned down as a frontman for the band Inspiral Carpets when he was 24, Noel Gallagher then focused his attention on his younger brother's band.

    He joined Liam Gallagher's group on the condition that he could have complete control.

    But that dynamic changed over the summer, when Oasis released "Don't Believe the Truth."

    Rare for the band's long, tumultuous history, the album includes songs written by the rest of the band: frontman Liam Gallagher, guitarist Gem Archer and bassist Andy Bell.

    "Not writing the full record meant I didn't have to work as hard," Noel Gallagher said. "I always get the final say on songs. In the past, when the guys would bring me their songs, I didn't feel like they fit in with where we were going. But this time around, I thought their songs were fantastic."

    The result is a record that, after several years of uninspired releases, recaptures the energy and excitement of the group's earlier music.

    Sure, it still sounds distinctly like Oasis – roaring guitars, nasal vocals – but there's a new level of diversity to the music.

    Noel Gallagher's classic, arena-friendly song "Lyla" fits well next to Liam Gallagher's short, indie-influenced "The Meaning of Soul."

    The band isn't breaking any new ground – it's still obvious they love the Beatles, especially on "Love Like a Bomb." (Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, plays drums on most of the songs.)

    But what is surprising is that Noel Gallagher enjoyed watching his brother succeed at songwriting.

    So what about that famous sibling rivalry?

    "It doesn't rear it's ugly head as regularly as it used to," Noel Gallagher said. "Liam's only just started to write songs, so he's playing catch-up. I didn't teach him how, I think he must be watching and learning. I don't think I could teach him, he wouldn't be the best pupil. He tends to focus a lot on the extracurricular stuff."

    Because Oasis is scheduled to tour well into next year, including stopping at Coors Amphitheatre Wednesday, that doesn't leave much time for goofing off, especially for the more responsible, older brother.

    When Noel Gallagher's not on stage, he's usually the one spending his free time plugged on the phone talking to reporters.

    "It certainly feels like I'm the one who does all the press," he said. "But that's because the rest of the three don't exude any kind of charisma. They just don't have much to say. I on the other hand. ..."

    Just because Noel Gallagher has plenty to talk about, it doesn't mean he's ready to take centerstage. Even though he has to put up with his brother's drunken rages and on-stage outbursts, Noel Gallagher is happy in the background.

    "I'd much rather be the Keith Richards character," he said. "Who wants to be Mick Jagger? I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy."

      Oasis score with new film soundtrack

    A previously unheard OASIS track will be released on October 17 – and could be the last from the band for some time to come.

    With Noel Gallagher telling NME.COM last week that the band won’t release a new album until at least 2007, possibly even 2010, the band have contributed a brand new song to the soundtrack of the forthcoming football film ‘Goal! The Movie’ called ‘Who Put The Weight Of The World On My Shoulders?’.

    Written and performed by Noel, insiders who have heard the track revealed: “The song really feels like a classic Noel-fronted track, it’s principally acoustic but has got really melodic strings all over it.”

    The track appears to reference the band’s current album ‘Don’t’ Believe The Truth’ and the guitarist’s contempt for TV news which inspired it, with Noel singing: “Who put the weight of the world on my shoulders?/ Who put the lies in the truth that you sold us/ Lost behind a silver screen are all the things you could have been to us”.

    “It’s a weighty, heart-felt lament from Noel,” added the insider, “in a way it sounds like the other side of the coin to ‘Whatever’ (1994 single), epic but really soulful.”

    Noel’s contribution to ‘Goal!’ came about after director Danny Cannon visited him while the band were recording in Los Angeles earlier this year. Having agreed to take part, the new track was recorded in London just after the band’s short club show tour in May, and was produced by UNKLE.

    The soundtrack also features other rare Oasis material, with an unreleased mix of ‘Morning Glory’ by ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’ producer Dave Sardy which adds an aggressive edge to the track, plus the new UNKLE ‘Beachhead’ re-recording of ‘Cast No Shadow’ featuring Noel on vocals. B-side ‘Acquiesce’ is not slated for the soundtrack album, but features in the film itself.

    ‘Goal!’ follows the story of a Mexican illegal immigrant who journeys from Los Angeles to Newcastle hoping to make it as professional footballer, and is released on September 20.
