Havoc and Fun at the Oasis Brits after Party
NOEL KICKS CELEBS OUT OF PARTY
FOR many celebs, it was a humiliating night they'd rather forget.
One after another they rolled up at the Oasis Brit's after show party - only to be turned away in front of photographers and scores of mere mortals.
Many begged bouncers to be let into the ultra-trendy Cuckoo Club in London's West End early yesterday morning - but Noel Gallagher was standing behind the door, personally vetting each one, and cruelly rejecting anyone he didn't like.
Laughing, Noel told us: "We're throwing our own party so we can snub people and not let them in."
Among those sent packing were James Morrison (who'd just won a Brit!), Badly-Drawn Boy, Suggs from Madness, Alex Zane, Sadie Frost and Jamie Callum. They were all forced to do the walk of shame back to their cars.
Amusingly, one of the few bands allowed in were double winners the Arctic Monkeys - even though they had snubbed the Brits ceremony itself.
Noel took his role as chief bouncer very seriously - when he wasn't standing behind the door checking who wanted entry, he was approving each name personally as messages were ferried to him by door staff.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, while Noel was on door duty, his brother Liam was causing a riot outside the club. It started with him scrawling on snappers' lenses and bald heads with a permanent marker pen.
An autograph hunter was left concussed, cars were smashed, and punches were thrown as chaos reigned. While Liam unleashed terror outside, we watched from our brilliant vantage spot inside, while pampered celebs were sent packing. We laughed as they pleaded and whimpered with bouncers that they had been invited - only to be turned away. It wasn't as if the place was even full. Those lucky enough to be allowed in included Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, The Kooks, Carl Barat, The Fratellis and Corinne Bailey Rae.
After a few beers, Noel really warmed to his role, and perhaps our favourite spat was when he realised Alex Zane had got past him with Sadie Frost.
The Roll With It star ordered his doorstaff to remove Zane from the dancefloor and boot him out! Sadie was left fuming and pleaded with staff to let Alex stay - only to flounce out in protest.
Another highlight came when Keith Allen arrived with his mate Badly Drawn Boy, aka Damon Gough. Keith was let in but when Damon was rejected he ranted into his phone and hung around for 20 minutes before sloping off home. Undeterred by losing his drinking-buddy, Keith danced around like a madman.
Meanwhile Liam, who should have got an award for Outstanding Contribution To Causing Trouble, sat in a booth looking spaced, randomly shouting at people as they walked by.
And considering the Manc lads' difficult relationship, it was something of a miracle that Noel even allowed his own brother into the party!
