      David Grohl: " I love Oasis"

    The Foo Fighter praises Mancs after Noise And Confusion

    Dave Grohl has paid tribute to Oasis after sharing at stage with them earlier in the month.

    Foo Fighters joined the Manchester band at Noise And Confusion at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on December 10, and their frontman had nothing but praise for the Gallaghers.

    "I love Oasis. There's no way that you can't love them because they make such excellent fucking music," Grohl told NME.COM. "There are really very few bands that make it that difficult to hate them just by being so fucking good. I know in interviews they come over like touchy bastards or whatever but you can sit down with them in a bar and have a couple of drinks and you will have the night of your life.

    Grohl added: "I get on with anybody, but those guys are great. The last time I saw Noel he was walking through Covent Garden and he just tapped me on the shoulder and was like 'Alright, mate'. He was happy because he'd just got out of an interview. Their music is fucking good and their songs are fucking contagious. I just have a lot of respect for them."

      Oasis reveal Spiritual influence

    Oasis guitarist Noel Gallager claims the band are set to record a new song inspired by influential space-rockers Spiritualized.

    Gallagher claims that 'The Boy With The Blues', which was penned by his brother Liam, is reminiscent of Jason Pierce's cult favourites and is likely to be the lead track on a new Oasis EP.

    In fact, Gallagher is so excited by the song, which was considered too obscure to appear on the band's last album 'Don't Believe The Truth', that he wants the band to give up some of their holiday time in January to go into the studio and record it.

    Speaking to the NME he said: "It's a bit like Spiritualized. It's driven by a piano and acoustic guitars."

    He added: "It's got a chant at the end. There's not much of a chorus to speak of which is why it didn't go on the album."

    The proposed EP could be released next summer.

      Noel on Brits , Liam's shorts and recording plans

    THE BLAST NOEL

    OBVIOUSLY no one's told Noel Gallagher it's the season of goodwill to ALL men - even those on holiday!

    The Oasis rocker thinks Brits abroad are a "disgrace". He says: "OK, the British like to travel, but they don't have to carry a Union Jack with them. I'm embarrassed when I see Brits in Australia, they act so... English. "They have their tops off, wear flip-flops and shout at the tops of their voices."

    Then he turned his rant to Liam's habit of wearing shorts on stage: "A man his age - it's f******g out of order!"

    Not much chance of Noel mellowing in 2006, then.

    Oasis plan EP recording

    Noel Gallagher has revealed to the Daily Star that Oasis plan to spend January in the studio recording material for a new EP with a view to a summer release. Noel explained, “If we spend January recording and mixing it, it could be out for the summer”, he also added that brother Liam was unaware of his plans.

    Oasis are also nearing the end of their contract with Sony records which could mean a greatest hits record in 2006 should they fail to record a new studio album.

      Noel's rant of the year

    Here's the best of what pop and rock stars had to say to yours truly in 2005:

    2005 RANT OF THE YEAR


    Noel Gallagher of Oasis wins the prize for best quote as he summed up Live 8 to the Sun's Jane Stevenson:

    "But I don't like the way that somebody suddenly decides that all the bands in England are going to fookin' play and everybody jumps to attention.

    "No, it's the general thing that rock stars should be doing something to fookin' sort this out.

    "The fate of the African continent does not fookin' depend on a load of fookin' musicians in Hyde Park singing fookin' shit songs to kids. And they're saying they're fookin' raising awareness for it.

    "If you're not aware of it by now, you can be aware of it for the half-hour. But I bet you that 99% of that audience will walk out while they're still eating McDonald's on the way home and won't realize that by actually standing in McDonald's you're perpetuating poverty in some way.

    "I think, more effective is taking out some of the fookin' government leaders in Africa and starting again, really. A crook is a crook right? Saddam Hussein sat on a load of oil, right? Look at (Zimbabwe president Robert) Mugabe, sat on a load of shit. So he gets to perpetuate evil against his people.

    "Team America -- the American army -- should be in Africa, shouldn't they? All the little puppets going around taking out African leaders. That would be my solution to it. Well, I mean if they really want to do good for the world. That's what I'd do.

    "I don't believe pop music, or Annie Lennox singing Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) is going to do anybody any favours, apart from Annie Lennox."

      Back to studio for new single ?

    GALLAGHER LETS BROTHER IN ON PLANS

    OASIS rocker NOEL GALLAGHER has plans to work on a new single written by his brother LIAM, but hasn't told him yet.

    Noel, the oldest of the rock siblings, knows it will take some persuasion to get Liam back into the recording studio after a year spent on the road, but thinks the song is too good not to release as a stand-alone single.

    He says, "Liam's got this tune that's left over from the sessions called THE BOY WITH THE BLUES, which he got in a right f**king a**e about and it could've been on the record.

    "And I would like to - because we've got a month off in January, we've got all of January off - I'd like to get back into the studio to add a bit more to it.

    "I haven't spoke to Liam about this. This'll be the first he hears of it when he reads it now and he'll be like, 'What the f**k are you on about?'

    "I'd like to put it out as a one-off single, 'cos if we spend January recording it and mixing it, it could be out for the summer.

    "It's got a chant at the end. There's not much of a chorus to speak of, which is why it didn't go on the album.

    "DAVE SARDY (producer) was like, 'It needs a chorus,' but it's got this chant at the end where the words go, 'Come all together/if we come all together/We'll come all together for you."'

      Oasis greatest hits album next ?

    The next Oasis album is expected to be a Greatest Hits collection, Noel Gallagher has confirmed.

    The Oasis songwriter has confirmed the group have completed their contract with Sony and have no plans to sign a new one, potentially opening the door for the compilation.

    Gallagher has admitted to being unhappy at the prospect of the album, calling it "a scam" and saying the band would rather wait until they've split up.

    He explained: "We've come to the end of our contract with Sony. We won't sign with them again. I'm worried they'll cash in and release a best-of.

    "I've always said we'd never do one until we'd split. I think they're going to force our hand. I really wouldn't want to do one, but if they put one out we'll have to get involved otherwise it'll be s*it."

    He concluded: "I hope we don't do one. It's all a scam. You should put one out only when you're finished - in chronological order. But I have a feeling they'll do the dirty on us."

      Noel looking forward to break

    NOEL GALLAGHER is looking forward to some time off when the current OASIS tour is over, because he'll be sick to death of his bandmates and crew.

    The LYLA hitmaker, who will have toured for nine months when his band plays their final gig, openly admits he will be desperate to get away from all involved with the tour, including his younger brother LIAM.

    He says, "We finish touring next March in Mexico City. By the time it gets to that I'll be f**king sick of it and everybody in it.

    "I'll be f**king sick of Liam and GEM and ANDY and everyone, sick of the songs, sick of singing THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IDLE every night and it'll be like, 'Right. I'm off on holiday for six months!'"

      The importance of being vital

    Oasis, SECC, Glasgow fourstar


    Even less partial observers would assess the last 12 months of Oasis's career and deduce that 2005 was the year they got their groove back, snatching victory from the jaws of a career seemingly growing ever more stagnant.

    Very little of the blame for their gradual decline since the era-defining gigs at Knebworth Park in 1996 can be laid at the door of the band, although the meteoric rise that took them there in the first place can't have helped. The two years previous to these shows saw the Gallagher brothers rapidly ascend from mouthpieces of a nominally talked-about new band on an independent label to popular national figureheads.

    They were boastful, confident and as in love with their own opinions as they were with the aspirational excitement of rock'n'roll music, and many felt that they should have embodied the shock of the old-made-new only as long as it took their first two albums, Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story) Morning Glory, to wake British music from the self-reverential torpor it lay in at the time, before imploding like their less often cited heroes, the Sex Pistols.

    Yet here they still are, and the best part of nine years spent working hard and just barely staying on their feet, like old barroom sluggers, seems to be paying off. As even the most fevered, vocal and easily-pleased fan may admit to themselves, the fire was going out. And now, by ceasing vainly to fan it and instead accepting their new, less vital place in the world - like other credible survivors such as U2 or New Order - they've managed to keep it crackling along.

    As this gig bears testimony, the old formula hasn't required much amending. Liam - still youthfully handsome-featured and sporting a suave safari coat and impressive sideburns - possesses a rare kind of rock-star magnetism that's attractive and repulsive at the same time. He's familiar enough that the whole audience can snigger along with his dedication of the drug-referencing "Morning Glory" ("all your dreams are made/ when you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade") to Kate Moss, yet he's also dismissive enough to risk offending a more genteel crowd with the farewell: "Merry Christmas, you fuckers, this is the last one." Naturally, Oasis's traditional fanbase care not for niceties, and roar their brusque hero on.

    Noel, for his part, still plays the eternally affable big-brother figure, although the once-dictatorial guitarist is now allegedly part of a cooperative with fellow musicians Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Zak Starkey (the drummer, and the son of Ringo Starr). Yet it's telling that "Lyla" and "The Importance of Being Idle", the two consecutively chart-topping singles that have restored the band's pride this year, were still written by him.

    The versions of old favourites such as "Cigarettes and Alcohol", "Live Forever" and "Wonderwall" that many fans doubtless attend for are present and correct, nostalgia-tinged yet delivered with commendable passion. Yet what's most pleasing about the show - probably for Noel as much as anyone, a man who knows too much about the workings of rock'n'roll to settle for becoming his own tribute act - is how much the strident and energetic new songs like "Turn Up The Sun" and "A Bell Will Ring" give these classics new life.

    For too long, aside from the odd decent single, a contemporary song in Oasis's set has been a cue to head for the bar, or to take a breather and wait to join in with the polite applause at the end. But now, when, for example, "The Meaning Of Soul" pounds into life, an enlivened crowd give it their full attention - a crowd, it's worth pointing out, not just made up of late-twenty- and thirtysomething nostalgia seekers, but teenagers who are just starting to buy into the excitement that Oasis have only recently begun to represent once more.

    For Oasis, it'll be, doubtless, a happier New Year than they've seen in a while.

      A different class. Oasis & Coldplay

    It's the Nineties versus the Noughties as both of Britain's biggest stadium acts take to the road. But will Coldplay be as happy as Oasis to tread the path of crowd-pleasing familiarity?


    Oasis
    Exhibition & Conference Centre, Aberdeen

    Coldplay
    Earls Court, London SW5

    Oasis and Coldplay released their latest albums within seven days of each other; they end the year with a tour that finds them performing within seven days of each other.

    Monday night in Aberdeen and 8,000 fans wait impatiently for Oasis. Some are survivors from the Nineties but the veterans from the Britpop wars are easily outnumbered by those for whom the Oasis versus Blur rivalry is as much part of ancient history as a Conservative government.

    When they emerged Oasis were a swaggering response to the self-indulgent whining of grunge. Kurt Cobain loathed celebrity but the Gallagher brothers gave every impression of relishing their fame. Two classic albums, however, were followed by successive disappointments. By the time they headlined Glastonbury last year they were a letdown.

    With Don't Believe the Truth some of the fire has returned. They begin with 'Turn up the Sun' which is greeted with delirium. From the opening number onwards every song is welcomed with an eardrum-perforating roar. New songs 'Lyla' and 'Mucky Fingers' are welcomed almost as enthusiastically as older favourites 'Live Forever', 'Champagne Supernova' and 'Cigarettes and Alcohol'.

    Liam Gallagher, sporting startling mutton chops and a pin-striped jacket, remains compelling while behind him Zak Starkey, Andy Bell and Gem Archer give understated but powerful support. Noel takes lead vocals on 'The Masterplan'. It is hard not to be moved by these songs which form the soundtrack to my generation. Rather fittingly they close the show with a cover of The Who's 'My Generation'.

    Based on tonight's performance Oasis can still deliver what their fans desire: unvarnished anthems, free of self-doubt and which sound instantly familiar on first listen. But there is nothing that feels surprising or unpredictable. The latest album freely borrows from the Beatles as well as the Stranglers, the Kinks and the Velvet Underground, but what made those acts great was their willingness to innovate. Damon Albarn, the Gallaghers' Nineties nemesis, has spent the past decade doing just that with his Mali Music project and the Gorillaz albums but Oasis appear unwilling or unable to stretch themselves or their audience. For all their working-class roots, Oasis in 2005 are an essentially conservative outfit trading on past (morning) glories.

    A decade on from Britpop and the group's current public school educated opponents take the stage of London's Earls Court for the first of three sold-out shows. This year Coldplay vaulted into the stellar league. Despite a difficult gestation X&Y was a worldwide hit; the band produced a stunning set at Glastonbury, won Best Act in the World at the Q awards (where Liam described Chris Martin as a 'plant pot') and played a prominent role in the Make Poverty History campaign. Once dismissed as 'music for bedwetters', they are ending the year in triumph.

    The show opens with a giant digital clock counting down; silhouetted against it stands Chris Martin while the opening bars of 'Square One' ring out. The song is quintessential Coldplay: music influenced by Pink Floyd and Radiohead and lyrics that are possibly profound or a load of windy tosh. 'Is there anybody out there who/ Is lost and hurt and lonely too?' sings Martin as the crowd is bathed in green, red and blue light.

    When not hunched in front of the keyboard Martin is bounding from one side of the stage to the other, not so much throwing rock star shapes as performing onstage yoga. During 'Politik' the background screens are filled with billowing flames of red and orange; for 'Yellow' dozens of huge yellow balloons magically appear and float above the audience.

    If Oasis appeal to the bladdered, Coldplay's music speaks to the bewildered; like a male Dido, Chris Martin makes polite music for the faintly puzzled. His lyrics are spiritual, sort of; restless and yearning, vaguely. They come framed inside huge chiming, tremulous guitars, which is as close as their sound gets to having (the) Edge, insistent skeletal piano melodies and occasionally some fierce drumming. When it works as on 'God Put a Smile on Your Face' it creates an intricate, claustrophobic aural backdrop to Chris Martin's possibly meaningful words.

    After a pulsating 'White Shadows' and 'The Scientist' come two songs dedicated to Johnny Cash: a moving 'Til Kingdom Come' and a cover of 'Ring of Fire' which does not quite come off. Chris Martin conveys little sense of having known true hurt; famously married to Gwyneth Paltrow (they already have one child, Apple, and with the news that Paltrow is pregnant look set to have a pair), he manfully tries to remain self-deprecating, giving the impression of not quite being able to believe that the assembled thousands are there to see him and his band. Having thanked those sitting at the very back of the vast Earls Court, he goes further and runs the length of the arena to be closer to them. A wistful and fragile 'Swallowed in the Sea' is followed by 'In My Place' and the inevitable 'Fix You' which has become Coldplay's 'Imagine'.

    They might be easy to hate but Coldplay's rootless, doubt-filled ruminations reflect the Zeitgeist as surely as Oasis's cocksure anthems for the Loaded generation did a decade ago. It has been unquestionably their year but the challenge is how to ensure that when fashion changes they are not left stranded. Let's hope that in 10 years' time they don't look back in anger.

    · Oasis play Belfast Odyssey Arena (tonight and Mon) and Dublin Point Theatre (Wed and Thur). Coldplay play Newcastle Telewest Arena (tonight), Manchester Evening News Arena (Mon) and Belfast Odyssey Arena (Wed)

      Oasis at Glasgow's SECC

    Now these guys know what they're doing, and so they should. In addition to the fact they have been performing worldwide now for more than 10 years, they still have the barefaced arrogance to put on a remarkably impressive show.

    Amid the aeroplane hangar-like surroundings of Glasgow's SECC and a 10,000-strong crowd, Liam Gallagher stands, flanked to the left by Andy Bell and Gem Archer with brother Noel holding up on the left, motionless, staring into the lights, chin aloft. And this, it would appear, is all he needs to do in order to get the beer-soaked mob jumping to the bass and pointing fingers in mid-air.

    The band's ingenuity is faultless as they swagger through a set of their latest material from last summer's hit album, Don't Believe the TruthLyla, Mucky Fingers and Turn Up The Sun – and the ever popular classics, Masterplan and Champagne Supernova. Even Kate Moss gets a dedication in the form of (What's the Story) Morning Glory. The urgent strains of Liam are lucidly complemented by the more dreamily introverted tones of Noel, a reticent reminder of these brothers' original inspiration, Lennon and McCartney.

    This year Oasis have achieved the No 1 spot twice as press and public alike heralded a return to their Definitely Maybe form. In fact, Oasis have ebbed and flowed through the past decade, evolving and adapting. Now it is a mixed crowd that pours through the doors to see them; from those who were there for Supersonic first time round to a freshly excited younger generation of moochy teenagers. Their reason for still successfully existing remains as clear as it was when they were first spotted in Glasgow, 12 years ago. Perhaps their rock'n'roll will indeed Live Forever.

      Liam cries his heart out

    It seems Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher isn't as tough as his indie rocker image would suggest.

    The big softy recently admitted that he blubbed like a big baby when he went to see blockbuster movie King Kong at the cinema.

    He reportedly felt a strong connection with the big hairy ape in the film.

    He might want to listen to the lyrics of one of his own songs and "stop crying (his) heart out".

    The gorilla in the movie is actually a computer animation voiced by actor Andy Serkis.

      Noel's interview with The Bangkok Post

    What's the story?

    Noel Gallagher, the Oasis guitarist/singer/songwriter, talks about the new album, what he thinks of new music these days and the upcoming gig in Bangkok

    Noel Gallagher was right on the dot. Despite being in the midst of the Oasis Australian tour, the senior Gallagher managed to find time to place a call the minute that his label said he would. To make matters more intriguing, one half of the notoriously thugish pair of siblings did not swear once except at the mention of the new disco punk darlings, Bloc Party.

    Why the big fuss over a punctual, polite musician, you may wonder. Isn't it the norm? No, not when it's Noel Gallagher, who, together with his brother Liam and their band Oasis, were swept along with the Brit Pop craze and were introduced to the world with their 1994 now classic debut album, Definitely Maybe.

    This is a man whose constant, public feuds with everyone from the press to his own brother earned him more tabloid space and reputation than he cares to remember. This is a man who often litters his speech with ``fooking'' (a bit of Manchester accent there) and ``c***s''.

    Maybe the mood has been lifted because Oasis had such a phenomenal gig in Melbourne two nights ago.

    ``I've got good days and bad days,'' said Gallagher, on the subject of being on the road. ``Some days I love it. Some days I wish I were home, but that's kind of the same for any artist, I think.''

    Australia might not be the only place that will elevate Gallagher's spirits _ the band are booked as one of the headliners of an upcoming international rock festival to be held in Bangkok in February next year, which would be the second time that Oasis have played on these shores.

    ``Be patient. We will be with you next year,'' said Gallagher, in confirmation.

    That's where Oasis are these days _ touring the world. They are no longer Brit Pop royalty, trading acidic barbs with Blur on a regular basis or even appearing too often in the tabloids, bruised and hammered. They are indeed one of the few who survived the abysmal end of the Brit Pop era in the mid-'90s, along with Blur. Oasis now play stadiums worldwide and dub themselves as ``the best band in the world''.

    This ``best band in the world'' has come a long way. Formed by a group of Mancunian schoolmates Liam Gallagher (vocals), Paul ``Bonehead'' Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCaroll (drums), brother Noel later joined the group upon his return home after a stint as the Inspiral Carpets' roadie. The band forced themselves and their demo onto the Creation Record head honcho Alan McGee, who, of course, signed them. The first single, Supersonic, released in 1994, paved the way for the rest of the Oasis saga.

    They were hailed as one of the most exciting rock acts ever with the original line-up (former guitarist Bonehead now works with Sek Loso) during the height of Definitely Maybe and 1995's (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. They were helped by their true Brit lyrics, swelling guitars, anti-metrosexual poses and Liam's still intact sneer.

    Even so, they have suffered since then from less than flattering reviews of their other studio albums, the last being Heathen Chemistry in 2002. Oasis have also suffered at the hands of critics who view the band as stagnant in terms of sonic development, but Gallagher does not seem to be concerned.

    ``We make Oasis music. We don't make any particular kind of music, you know what I mean? I don't think we've grown much as a band. And in 10 years' time, I think we'll be pretty much the same as we are now really, except we'll be old with grey hair and fatty bottoms.''

    Their latest album, Don't Believe the Truth, released earlier this year, seems to be salvaging the band's reputation from being has-beens. It took three years to produce the album, one major overhaul where everything was scraped, and one fired-up pair of electronica wizards, Death in Vegas, to produce.

    Gallagher concedes that the line-up is now better than ever with Andy Bell, the former member of Ride and the founder of Hurricane #1, on bass, and Gem Archer, the ex-guitarist of Heavy Stereo, on rhythm guitar. And after the departure of Alan White, Oasis got a bit of help from Zak Starkey (son of the Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr) whom critics said was the best drummer Oasis ever had.

    ``It makes it a lot easier to record music because everybody has fairly good ideas, not just for songs, but for parts of the songs as well,'' he said.

    Don't Believe the Truth also sees the older Gallagher giving up his role as sole composer. Liam wrote three songs, the most he has ever contributed to one album, while Bell and Archer contributed two and one respectively. Surprisingly, Gallagher is not overly concerned that the writing torch is being passed around.

    ``My input is diminishing slightly, but I don't mind that as long as the record's still great. I can concentrate on the good songs that I've written, instead of trying to write a full album. And I much prefer it this way than the old way, where I was writing everything. It does tend to slow things down a little bit but I think that for the most part, it [turned out to be] for the better, so I'm pretty pleased,'' he said.

    Gallagher senior, however, was still the one who selected which songs went onto the album.

    ``I suppose I'm the oldest, so I get to choose,'' he quipped, adding that he believed fellow band members trusted his ear.

    ``I just choose the ones that I think are the best and everyone seems to agree with me. I think I know a good song when I hear one, because I've been doing it for long enough.''

    There was a rumour that super prolific Oasis wrote over 100 songs for this album _ which is actually not far from the truth.

    ``We wrote 66 songs for this album and we chose 11, so we got 55 left,'' Gallagher said. ``About 44 are not very good. So I think we got enough material for another record.''

    The first single from this album, Lyla, went straight to No. 1 in the UK and many countries in Europe and quickly became a mass chant-along at recent Oasis gigs.

    ``It's about a girl who's like Cinderella,'' Gallagher said. ``But of course, Cinderella won't be a very good name for a song.''

    Their second single, The Importance of Being Idle, is probably the most Oasis-sounding track on the album and won the Best Single of the Year Award from Q magazine. The latest single, Let There Be Love, is being claimed as a defining moment in the band's history. ``It's the oldest song on the album. It was written about seven years ago and it's only just finished off prior to the beginning of the recording of this album. It's a very special song. It's very beautiful.''

    Cited as an influence on many new UK bands, and, at the same time, dubbed outdated and irrelevant, Gallagher is not all that enthusiastic about the music scene these days.

    ``It's nothing more than okay,'' he said. ``I don't think there's been a great album release for a few years now. I don't think bands are very concerned about making it big any more. I don't understand a lot of music these days.''

    He does not hold a high opinion of Bloc Party, one of the most hyped new bands this year. Mention of them actually unleashed a few of the swear words for which he is famed.

    For him, the last great album was Parachutes, the debut album by Coldplay. So it's probably not a surprise that Chris Martin has said how Coldplay were influenced by Definitely Maybe.

    ``I feel flattered,'' Gallagher said. ``I've got to say I don't hear it in the music, but that's cool because I like Coldplay a lot.''

    So if a lot of new music is terrible, what's been playing on Noel Gallagher's stereo then? ``I listen to Kasabian a lot. I listen to the Coral a lot. I also listen to Bob Dylan, the Velvet Underground and the Beatles a lot,'' he said.

    For their next UK tour, Oasis will be supported by Shack, a band that Gallagher believes to be an ``absolute f***ing legend''. He has just signed them to his label and they will be putting out a record by 2007 at the latest.

    Gallagher has two record labels, but refuses to call himself a businessman. Rather, he describes himself as `` an ideas man''.

    ``Somebody else takes care of the business. I just come up with some fantastic ideas for music and bands,'' he said.


    Before wrapping up the interview, one question had to be asked: Does Gallagher truly believe that Oasis is the best band in the world?

    ``I think we are the best band in my world,'' he said.

    And for the 2005 Noel Gallagher, that seems to be enough.

      Oasis rock Millennium stadium

    The Millennium Stadium was full of attitude on Saturday afternoon - Liam Gallagher-style.

    Thousands crammed into Wales' largest venue to see Oasis, who were due on stage shortly after 2100 GMT.

    Fans who had travelled from across the UK paid homage to frontman Liam, with many sporting his trademark parka coat.

    Some even walked like him, adopting that unmistakeable swagger, while some others shook tambourines - Liam's instrument of choice when on stage.

    By 1600 GMT, the stadium's pitch was a sea of faces and most of the seats in the stand had been taken up.

    Before Oasis though, the crowd was treated to several other top acts.


    The Foo Fighters were sensational, and worked the crowd up into a frenzy, performing some of their latest hits in a memorable set.

    Razorlight and the Coral didn't disappoint either, but everyone at the Millennium Stadium's Noise and Confusion gig had come to see the headlining act, Oasis.

    The band has enjoyed a revival as an act once again to be reckoned with after the launch of their latest album, Don't Believe the Truth.

    But ironically the fans who packed in to watch roared most when Oasis played tracks from the Britpop era.

    Live Forever, Cigarettes and Alcohol, which Liam Gallagher dedicated to the memory of George Best, Wonderwall and of course Don't Look Back in Anger, were hugely appreciated by the crowd of 68,500.

    However one of the loudest cheers of ther night was reserved for a little-known B-side, Masterplan.

    Oddly though, there was no mention of the Gallager's idol John Lennon, just days after the 25th anniverveary of the ex-Beatles' death.

    Oasis' set ended with The Who's My Generation, and then suddenly they were gone, leaving with a tongue-in-cheek remark that they'd be in Cardiff's Whispers nightclub later "if you want to join us".

      Noel reveals Kasabian's toy cure

    OASIS guitarist/singer NOEL GALLAGHER was amazed when he heard the temporary cure for fellow British rocker TOM MEIGHAN's attention deficit disorder (ADD) - a visit to toy store Toys 'R' Us.

    Gallagher toured the United States with the KASABIAN rocker and his bandmates earlier this year (05) and was taken aback by Meighan's behaviour when he would start to merge his sentences into one long monologue.

    He says, "He is mental. And when he gets too mad, they have to take him to a toy shop to calm him down... I don't know whether I'm supposed to say that. He can hold 20 conversations at the same time.

    "He was in our dressing room one afternoon, and he's drinking a pint of vodka and Red Bull, and this is before the soundcheck, and in literally one sentence he's going, 'Have you got any f**king Red Bull? Look at that lighter! F**king hell, four for a pound! D'you smoke Marlboro Lights? Birds' fags!'

    "And apparently whenever he gets like that and he's too mad, they have to take him to Toys 'R' Us. The last time I actually laid eyes on him, he was in our hotel, he was in LIAM's (GALLAGHER) room, but management were s**tting themselves.

    "Somebody turned up, put him in a cab to take him to Toys 'R' Us in Times Square, calm him down, because of all the flashing lights and he plays with the toys and then he's alright. That's f**king genius, man!"

      Noel takes a dig at Jack White

    Noel Gallagher of Oasis has accused fellow musician, Jack White from the White Stripes, of selling out after recording a track for Coca Cola.

    Speaking to the NME Noel explained he’s disapproval by saying...

    “"He's supposed to be the poster boy for the alternative way of thinking. Coca-Cola man, f***ing hell! And alright, you wanna spread your message of peace and love, but do us all a favour. I'm not having that, that's wrong. Particularly Coca-Cola, it's like doing a gig for McDonalds."

      Noel pays tribute to Best

    OASIS star Noel Gallagher has paid George Best the ultimate compliment - saying the soccer legend was cool enough to be in the band.

    Guitarist Noel, 38, said: "Georgie transcended football. He was called the fifth Beatle and he looked cool as f***.

    "He owned a nightclub and a clothes shop, drove a Ferrari and he shagged Miss World."

    Asked whether George was cool enough to be in Oasis, Noel replied: "The only thing he didn't do in his life that was cool was play music, and he probably would have been good at that, too."

    Noel - a staunch Manchester City supporter - became pals with George after meeting at a charity function. They remained in contact after the Manchester United icon was diagnosed with liver disease.

    Noel and his ex-wife Meg Mathews sent flowers in 2000 when George was taken to hospital for tests on his liver. He later had a transplant.

    Noel missed George's Belfast funeral on Saturday due to tour commitments in Australia.

      Welsh concert will be emotional one

    WHEN Oasis take to the stage in Wales on Saturday, there'll be one Welsh voice cheering louder than all the rest - Ebbw Vale-born Marcus Russell, their manager and friend.

    The softly-spoken former school teacher, also chief executive of Ebbw Vale RFC, has been managing the band for the past 12 years.

    And despite having toured all over the world with the Gallagher brothers, the Noise and Confusion gig at the Millennium Stadium is the one that means the most.

    Marcus, 45, said: "It's going to be a big day for everyone.

    "Obviously I'm really pleased, coming from South Wales there's no greater venue for the band to play.

    "Liam and Noel have been very keen to play at the stadium ever since it became available. This is the first real opportunity they've had to do it, the first time it has fit in with our touring schedule.

    "It's great for them because it's fulfilling an ambition.

    "They have never been in the stadium before. Everyone knows they're huge football fans but they've never even caught a game at Cardiff so this will be something incredibly special.

    "People who've been there keep telling them the atmosphere and noise in there, with the roof on, is incredible. It'll be an emotional, fantastic night."

    Marcus played a pivotal role in Oasis conquering both the UK and America.

    But despite his globetrotting - he boards almost as many planes for far-off destinations as Liam and Noel now - his heart remains in Wales.

    Speaking from Australia as the Gallaghers left the stage in Melbourne this week, he said: "I was actually at the stadium for the Wales v Australia game last weekend, just before flying to Australia to join the boys on tour.

    "I've lost count of the number of games I've seen at the stadium but, strangely enough, I've never seen a concert there so next weekend will be a new experience for me too.

    "I'm back and fore to Wales a lot because my family are still here. I probably make it back around twice a month."

    In an amazing comeback year, Oasis have played 77 sell-out gigs around the world - from the UK, to Europe, Japan, America and Australia.

    Their album, Don't Believe The Truth, which went straight to number one in the UK and Japan when it was released at the end of May, has already spawned two number one singles in the form of Lyla and The Importance Of Being Idle.

    And with Scottish and Irish sell-out gigs taking them right up until December 22, a European tour planned for January and February next year, and Let There Be Love looking set to chart high in the singles chart this week, it seems there's no rest for Oasis or Marcus.

    He says: "I think you can safely say 2005 is the best year we've ever had. We're just loving it. It has been a very successful year. The boys have a very good work ethic. They're still working hard."

    So are the once-brawling brothers now all grown up?

    "Yes. And I'm sure their families will be in Cardiff next weekend to support them.

    "I think, if anything, they appreciate what they have got and where they are, as artists and individuals, now more than ever.

    "And they definitely appreciate the fans. So getting out there and performing has been excellent."

    As for Marcus, music has been a part of his life from his early teens, when he remembers his brother bringing home Rolling Stones singles.

    He first left Ebbw Vale in 1975 to study education at Middlesex Polytechnic. While there he promoted several punk bands and even staged a show for the Sex Pistols.

    When he finished college he settled with his wife in Essex, where he took up a teaching job. But when they split years later, disillusioned with teaching, he drifted into management with Eighties hopefuls Latin Quarter.

    When the Smiths split in 1987 he managed guitarist Johnny Marr. And then he saw Oasis.

    But his monumental success doesn't mean he's neglected Wales' music industry.

    He said: "Oasis recorded their first two albums in Wales. The massive album, What's The Story, Morning Glory? was recorded at Rockfield and we've recorded at Caerleon and Monnow. But the boys have not been back to Wales since then.

    "In January and February we are touring Europe and the band have invited the Stereophonics to tour with them. They've never played with them before so that looks set to be a great tour.

    "The Super Furry Animals have also been with us for the big UK stadium gigs we did back in June.

    "And there was a good relationship with the Manic Street Preachers.

    "I don't think it's a conscious decision to keep the Wales connection but over the years everyone gets to know each other. Plus, you know, there are good bands in Wales and all of those who become successful deserve a place on the big stage.

      Oasis track crowned best of the year 2005

    Coldplay have cemented their position as Britain's biggest band, with their album X&Y named the best of 2005.

    The recording, which went straight to number one in 28 countries and became the second fastest-selling album in British history after its release in June, was given the award by Q magazine.

    Runner-up was Demon Days by Gorillaz, the second-album from the cartoon-hip hop group createdby Damon Albarn of Blur.

    Kaiser Chiefs were third with their debut album, Employment, which has sold 2.5 million copies since March.

    The Leeds g roup exploded onto the music scene this year with the re-release of a demo single-Oh My God, and went on to perform at Glastonbury and Live8 in Philadelphia.

    Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson said: "I'm actually dead chuffed. I would have hoped it would have been in there to be honest - which I know sounds arrogant, but then being in a rock band you have to be arrogant, don't you?

    "Glastonbury was a big turning point for us - the first show I didn't get nervous at and the first show I really thought we proved ourselves to everyone that we were contenders, a lot more than just eyeliner and blazers."

    Fourth place went to Oasis's Don't Believe The Truth, which Q said was "their most vital since the Britpop glory days".

    In fifth place was I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning by the little-known American band Bright Eyes. The top female artist in the list of 50 top albums was Scottish newcomer KT Tunstall for Eye To The Telescope.

    Meanwhile, the Oasis return to form was confirmed with their single The Importance Of Being Idle at the top of Q's 100 Greatest Tracks Of The Year, which were voted for by the magazine's readers. The song topped the singles charts in August. Coldplay's Fix You was in second place and the Kaiser Chiefs took the third and fourth spots with I Predict A Riot and Oh My God respectively.

      Oasis beats U2, says Noel Gallagher

    OASIS guitarist Noel Gallagher has declared that his band is better than U2 and Coldplay.

    And he insists the other bands know it.
    "They know that we s--- over them," Gallagher said yesterday on the eve of the British band's sold-out Festival Hall show.

    "We've got two guitarists in our band. They've only got two between them. End of story.

    "Me, Chris Martin (Coldplay) and Bono (U2) have a friendly rivalry. Not that we're in some celebrity club, but I do talk to them on a regular basis and they know we're the bollocks.

    "They were on their hands and knees begging us to play Live8. It wasn't a big enough show for us."

    Oasis has had a remarkable comeback this year. Next week its new album Don't Believe the Truth is set to be the band's third consecutive British No. 1 this year with the Noel and Liam Gallagher duet Let There Be Love.

    "Coldplay and U2 haven't had three No. 1s in a row," Gallagher joked. "Coldplay haven't had any No. 1s in the UK, actually."

    Gallagher scoffed at rumours he's feuding with brother Liam after an incident in Brisbane.

    "It's bollocks," Gallagher said. "It's quite preposterous. Things are fine."

    Gallagher is a fan of Australia. "I'd move here if it wasn't so far away. It's like America weather-wise, but it's not full of fat idiots," he said.

    Oasis's final Melbourne show is at Festival Hall tonight.
