      Gallagher , Stewart and Hoffman chat with Parkie

    It's a battle of horrid hairdos at 90 paces when Rod Stewart and Noel Gallagher sit down to talk to Parkie with only Dustin Hoffman's more urbane coiff separating them. The two musicians discover they have more in common than they had probably expected, giving rise to a rather unfortunate contest of "my football pitch is bigger than yours".

    Hoffman is less self-inflated than he might be, sometimes adding valuable humour to balance the musos; Stewart is predictably a fully paid-up member of his own fan club; and Gallagher is surprisingly interesting.

      Noel: ' Johnny Marr made me pick up a Guitar'

    Oasis leader Noel Gallagher has admitted that The Smiths inspired him to pick up a guitar.

    The star claims that seeing the Manchester legends on 'Top Of The Pops' for the first time turned his head.

    "I remember seeing The Smiths on Top Of The Pops, and I don't mean this in a sycophantic way, but I wanted to be Johnny Marr," he said. "He had the Brian Jones haircut, the turtleneck, and the big red semi-acoustic guitar and he was cool as fuck."

    Gallagher made the admission on this week's Britpop edition of '7 Ages Of Rock'.

    The show will also recall the rise of a host of indie bands including Blur, Suede, The Stone Roses, The Libertines and will document Oasis's legendary Knebworth gigs.

    Reflecting on their famous gigs Gallagher added: "Knebworth House is Batman's house in the films. Did you know that? Well, when you see the Batman films and they drive through the big gates, well that's Knebworth House. So there I was driving into Batman's fucking gaff right, in a rolls royce, off my head!

    "And I remember driving into this big field, and sitting on my Rolls Royce thinking I was Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, and nearly having a panic attack cos I'd been up all night drinking, and going yeah! I'll take it. Where do I sign?"

    '7 Ages Of Rock' will be aired on BBC 2 on Saturday at 9pm and on BBC 1 on Sunday at 11.05pm.

      Blur's Alex James praises Wonderwall

    Blur bassist Alex James wishes he wrote classic Oasis hit 'Wonderwall'.

    The musician, whose band famously feuded with the Manchester rockers during their Britpop battle of the 90s, is envious of the song's magic.

    He said: "The first time I heard it, I thought it was a really great song. I wish I'd written it to be honest.

    "Liam Gallagher has got a great voice, and I think that's their finest moment."

    After the two bands' epic 1995 UK chart battle - in which Blur's single 'Country House' beat Oasis' 'Roll With It' to the coveted number one spot - 'Wonderwall' propelled Oasis to worldwide success, while Blur's career faltered.

    Alex, 38, recently admitted that beating Oasis to the top spot was one of the highlights of his career.

    He wrote in his book 'Bit of a Blur': "I can't deny it, sitting in the car and hearing that we'd won the battle, I felt very smug.

    "I couldn't stop smirking for weeks afterwards and there was a lot of satisfaction in knowing how upset Oasis were about it."

      Noel Interview to air on 'Seven Ages of Rock' Series

    Noel Gallagher has explained why Oasis' third album, Be Here Now, was 'bloated' saying it followed their second record "too quick".

    Speaking on the BBC's Seven Ages of Rock programme, shown on BBC2 this Saturday at 21:00 BST, Noel described the immense freedom thrust upon the band which was mismanaged.

    "It was too quick after Morning Glory," Noel said. "There was no kind of time to sit down and think, right, what are we going to do next."

    He added: "We were given … unlimited studio time, wherever you want. 'Can I have a 40-piece orchestra?' 'Have a 100'. Why not? At the time we all thought it was the … greatest thing that had ever been committed to tape, but we were all on drugs."

    The Oasis elder statesman described what was supposed to be the first single from the album, clocking in at over eight minutes and taking two minutes for the drums to kick in. "It's all feedback," Noel added.

    The band also went on what Noel described as a "ridiculous" tour with Be Here Now, emerging from a "12ft phone box" every night.

    Concluding the BBC's seven-part series, What the World is Waiting For will document the rise of British indie music from the Smiths to Arctic Monkeys.

    Previous episodes have included punk rock, stadium rock and the likes of David Bowie, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.

      The Verve to Reunite

    Oasis pal Richard Ashcroft reunites with band and writes new songs. The Band is set for a winter tour.

    The original band of Richard Ashcroft, Nick McCabe,Simon Jones and Pete Sailsbury have got together for the first time in almost a decade.

    In a statement, the band have announced they were: "Getting back together for the joy of the music."

    It is believed they will take a summer break and then return to the studio to complete their next album.

    The band broke up in 1999, with the tumultuous relationship between Ashcroft and McCabe being well documented with the two exiting the band repeatedly since they began in 1993.

    The band are set to play:

    Glasgow Academy (November 2,3)
    Blackpool Empress Ballroom (5,6)
    London Roundhouse (8,9)


    Tickets are set to go on sale on July 6.

      Noel Gallagher Pulls out of Kasabian Gig

    British rockers Kasabian were left disappointed when Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher pulled out of a one-off collaboration at the Glastonbury Festival. Gallagher - whose long-awaited rockumentary Lord Don't Slow Me Down premieres at the English festival later on Sunday - was forced to cancel his duet with the band in favour of time in the studio.

    Kasabian bassist Chris Edwards says, "It's the only weekend Noel can work with a U.S. producer (Dave Sardy) on his new album."

      Noel Gallagher and Dave Sardy to make Album plans

    Noel Gallagher is apparently meeting up with top producer Dave Sardy this week to start making plans for the next Oasis album.

    The 40-year-old will be talking to the music man - whose credits include the Spider-Man 3 and Casino Royale soundtracks and studio collections for Wolfmother and Jet - about the follow-up to Don't Believe The Truth.

    The Oasis singer told the Daily Star: "We start talking about the new album on Friday. I've got 17 songs ready, everybody else has three each. F*** knows when it will be out - 2010. Don't hold your breath."

    The 40-year was snapped partying at the Mojo Awards earlier this week with his pregnant girlfriend Sara MacDonald.

    He joked the duo had been discussing names for the baby.

    "I'm thinking Genghis, Gandhi or Goliath for the kid. Something with a G has got a ring to it," he laughed.

      Soap Star would love to play Liam in Biopic

    LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Rob James-Collier would love to play Liam Gallagher in a biopic film of his life.

    The 'Coronation Street' star - who plays Underworld factory boss Liam Connor - is a huge Oasis fan and thinks he looks similar to his hero.

    Rob told Britain's Soaplife magazine: "Before I come on Corrie some people though I was a bit like Liam so if there's a film of him I'd love to do it.

    I love early Oasis."

    But the 28-year-old may have trouble getting into character as he does not share the 'Mad Fer It' Manchunian's two greatest skills - singing and fighting.

    Rob said: "I can't sing and I can't dance. Just the thought of it scares me.

    "And I'm the softest lad you'll ever meet!

    "When it comes to fights I'm a runner. When in doubt - get out!"

    The sexy soap star - who scooped the Sexiest Male Award at this year's British Soap Awards - is currently dating a fashion designer, but has promised to keep her identity a secret.

    He said: "She says she doesn't want jealous girls coming looking for her!

    "I think she's bigging me up a bit there!"

      Oasis to Start Work on Band's 7th Album


    Oasis are to start work on their seventh studio album on July 3.


    Guitarist Noel Gallagher has named the date when the band will be recording a follow-up to 2005's 'Don't Believe The Truth'.

    "The songs are written... but don't hold your breath because the last album took three-and-half-years and three goes," he told BBC News. "It would be great if it was done by the end of the year and we could get out on the road by next summer, but that's insane wishful thinking."

    Previously the guitarist has told NME.COM that this album will be more experimental than Oasis' more recent efforts.

    "For the next record I really fancy doing, you know, a record where we just completely throw the kitchen sink at it," Gallagher declared. "We haven't done that since 'Be Here Now' (in 1997)... get like a 100 piece orchestra and choirs and all that.

    "I think since 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants' (2000) we've been trying to prove a point of just bass, drums, guitar and vocals and nothing fancy. But I kind of fancy, like, making an absolutely fucking colossal album. You know? Like literally two orchestras, stuff like that."

      Oasis' Special' Beatles' Session

    Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher talks about covering the Beatles, and why there will never be another band like them.

    Oasis have recorded a version of the Beatle's Within You Without You to celebrate 40 years since the release of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    They were among a number of bands - including Razorlight, Kaiser Chiefs, Bryan Adams and The Magic Numbers - who recorded contemporary version of songs from the iconic 1967 album.

    Gallagher - who also turned 40 this year - said it was an album close to his heart.

    'Floaty and dreamy'

    "Sgt Pepper
    is special for me because I was born on the 29 May, and it came out on the 1 June," he said.

    "So when I was being born in St Mary's Hospital, Manchester, it was being played on hospital radio.

    He added: "Because the songs are not rocking or having it, it's very floaty and dreamy, I think the older you get the more you appreciate it.

    "And it still contains some of the greatest Beatles songs like A Day in the Life, and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

    Gallagher said his brother Liam chose to do their own version of the George Harrison solo Within You, Without You.

    "When we were approached, I wasn't overly enthusiastic. I was thinking it was a bit pointless going there to copy the Beatles because it was never going to be as good.


    The Beatles were of their time... you can't compare a band from today with one from the 1960s

    Noel Gallagher

    "But I said if Liam wants to do it, I'll do it, so he was up for it and decided he was going to pick the song.

    "I just assumed he would say A Day In The Life, but he came back with Within You Without You , and I was like 'what? There's no guitars on it!'

    "There's nothing on it apart from singing and an Indian orchestra, but he said 'I can hear it in my head', and I said okay, brilliant.'"

    Gallagher said the band was inspired by the Beatle's soundtrack compilation album Love, when it came to recording the song.

    "The one good bit on the Love album, is a bit where they briefly cross Tomorrow Never and Always with Within You, Without You, so we said if we are going to do it, lets do it like that, because that sounds really exciting, and it also means we can all play on it."

    While Geoff Emerick - the engineer in charge of the original 1967 sessions - used the same equipment to record the new versions, Gallagher says only Oasis got to use the original desk.

    "We - maybe arrogantly on my behalf - said if we are going to do it we want to do it at Abbey Road, with the actual equipment or we are not interested," he said.

    The Kaiser Chiefs

    Gallagher said he was 'embarrassed' for The Kaiser Chiefs

    "The BBC bent over backwards and managed to book a couple of days in the studio.

    "The desk was in Lenny Kravitz studio, and somehow they managed to convince him it would be a good idea to rip it out, ship it to England, let us work on it, and ship it back again."

    Razorlight performed the track With A Little Help From My Friends, The Fray covered Fixing A Hole with the Magic Numbers playing She's Leaving Home.

    Getting Better
    was sung by the Kaiser Chiefs.

    Gallagher said the bands taking part in the recordings and working on the original equipment had a number of challenges to face.

    "Number one - you've all got to be able to play in the same room together," he said.

    "I was watching Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight on the documentary and with the greatest respect to those two bands, it was embarrassing. I was embarrassed for them.

    "Luckily for us we grew learning to play together in the same room, so we didn't do a great many takes. I think we got it on the sixth."

    New album

    Gallagher said it was impossible to compare the bands of today with the Beatles.

    "You can only be of your time," he said.

    "The Beatles were of their time... you can't compare a bad from today with one from the 1960s. Music doesn't mean as much today as it did in the 1960s.

    "That's why there will never be another Beatles."

    Gallagher added that Oasis were due to start recording their seventh studio album on 3 July.

    "The songs are written... but don't hold your breath because the last album took three-and-half-years and three goes!

    "It would be great if it was done by the end of the year and we could get out on the road by next summer, but that's insane wishful thinking."

    Noel Gallagher was talking to the BBC's Colin Paterson.

    Sgt Pepper's 40th Anniversary is on BBC Radio 2 at 2000 on Saturday 16 June.

      Oasis check out The White Stripes at Hyde Park

    Jack and Meg kick off the 02 Wireless Festival

    The White Stripes were watched by the likes of Oasis and The View as they kicked off the London leg of the 02 Wireless Festival at Hyde Park tonight (June 14).

    After two 'warm-up' gigs in the UK capital this week, Jack and Meg White played their festival show in front of a crowd that included Oasis bandmates Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer and The View's Kyle Falconer.

    The White Stripes played only three songs from new album 'Icky Thump' (released June 18), the title track and single, 'I'm Slowly Turning Into You' and 'A Martyr For My Love For You'.

    The rest of the set was made up from a series of older favourites including singles 'Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground', 'Hotel Yorba' and traditional set closer 'Seven Nation Army'.

    Jack and Meg had two big screens either side of them which showed them and the crowd in red and white monochrome. Jack rarely spoke, other than to express his pleasure at playing in the park, and to express his awe at support act Queens Of The Stone Age's performance.

      Macca Felt Sorry For Oasis

    PAUL MCCARTNEY chuckles every time a newcomer promises fans their act will be bigger than the BEATLES - because there will never be another Fab Four. The British star admits he was amused when Oasis rockers Liam and Noel Gallagher boasted they'd become more famous than his group - because there's no such thing. He tells Newsweek magazine, "When they started out, Oasis... said they were going to be bigger than the Beatles. And I felt sorry for them. "It's a prediction that doesn't come true. It's a fatal prediction. I sort of sit by and go, 'Good luck, son.'"

    SUPPOSE I asked you to name one Manchester City fan who would be prepared to say publicly that: a) he was amused by the problems besieging Thaksin Shinawatra's takeover bid, and b) Joey Barton is a damn good chap really. Yep, I think you know who.

    Noel Gallagher and controversial statements go together like City and calamity. He's never apologised for it; he's not going to start now.

    So when Radio Five Live reporter Colin Paterson caught up with him in the cafe at Abbey Road studios in London today and asked him for a few words about everything that's going on at City at the moment, Gallagher let rip - and then some.

    The broadcast version of the interview lasted just 75 seconds, during which Gallagher claimed he was enjoying the takeover troubles, dismissing them as "pure Man City", joked about making a bid for the club itself (with Manchester DJ and M-People overlord Mike Pickering), described former Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock as "a Mickey Mouse manager", argued that Joey Barton is a good guy if you get to know him and stated that Richard Dunne will probably be the next big-name player to leave the Blues.

    All the interview needed was a melancholy guitar track in the background and Oasis could have released it as a single. Maybe they will.

    So, the highlights of the Gallagher interview were as follows:

    On the takeover: "This takeover is never going to happen now, because the government has had his bank accounts frozen. It's pure Man City. I love it.

    "The fixture list comes out on Thursday, we haven't got a manager, we've only got half-a-team and we haven't sold any season tickets. It's brilliant.

    "I'm thinking of mounting a hostile takeover - me and Mike Pickering. I reckon we could scrape together about £400,000 in cash. I reckon we would get it for that."

    On the lack of a manager: "In the dugout, I would like to have seen Sam Allardyce, but he went to Newcastle.

    "It depends who's available now. It would be good if they got a foreign coach.

    "But it all depends on the takeover. If there's no takeover, we'll get Neil Warnock - and a more Mickey Mouse manager than him you couldn't find anywhere."

    On Joey Barton: "He's a good lad, Joey; he's a friend of mine. He gets a bad rap. But when you meet him, he's a really nice lad.

    "It's good for him that he's moving to Newcastle. I'm made up for him. But I'm sad to see him go; he's our best player.

    And on the future of the rest of the squad: "I was sad to lose Sylvain Distin; he was another of our best players. At least we haven't lost Richard Dunne yet, but I'm sure he'll be out of the door soon."

    Ah, come on Noel, tell us what you really think.

      Is Louder Music Better ?

    Older generations have always complained that modern rock music is nothing but a monotonous racket.

    And now recording experts appear to have confirmed they are right - music is getting louder and the sound of some chart-topping albums is so distorted it is making listeners feel sick.

    Record companies and bands like Oasis are using digital technology to ratchet up the volume on CDs to make a bigger impact on their young listeners.

    But by artificially pushing up sound levels they also drown out the dynamic range of the song making everything sound 'loud'.

    They use a technique called 'peak limiting' which squeezes the sound range on a track to one level by removing the peaks and troughs that would normally separate a quieter verse from a pumping chorus.

    Britain's leading studio engineers are now launching a campaign against this widespread technique.

    In the days of vinyl the record would jump out of the groove if a track was too loud, but modern CD players respond to the change in frequency by adding a buzzing, distorted sound to the loudest parts of the song.

    This can drown out essential musical details like vocals and snare drums and make it unbearable to listen to.

    Oasis started the loudness war and recent albums by Arctic Monkeys and Lily Allen have pushed the loudness needle further into the red.

    The Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Californication, branded 'unlistenable' by studio experts, is the subject of an online petition calling for it to be remastered without its harsh, compressed sound.

    Peter Mew, senior mastering engineer at Abbey Road studios, said: 'Record companies are competing in an arms race to make their album sound the 'loudest'.

    'The quieter parts are becoming louder and the loudest parts are just becoming a buzz.'

    Mr Mew, who mastered David Bowie's classic 1970s albums, warned that modern albums now induced nausea.

    He said: 'The brain is not geared to accept buzzing. CDs induce a sense of fatigue in the listeners. It becomes psychologically tiring and almost impossible to listen to.

    Geoff Emerick, engineer on The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album, said: 'A lot of what is released today is basically a scrunched up mess.

    'Whole layers of sound are missing. It is because record companies don't trust listeners to decide themselves if they want to turn the volume up.'

    Downloading songs has exacerbated the effect. Songs are compressed once again into digital files before being sold on iTunes and similar sites.

    The reduction in quality is so marked that EMI has introduced higher-quality digital tracks, at premium price, in response to consumer demand.
