      'Noel's too rich to write'

    OASIS star NOEL GALLAGHER is too rich to write chart-topping songs, according to THE KOOKS frontman LUKE PRITCHARD. Pritchard wants to compose as much material as he can, before his band become too successful - because he believes wealth sapped Gallagher's creativity. He says, "He wrote all the songs before he got big. You can't write about having a s**t time when you're living in a mansion."

      Hospice gets an all-star boost

    ROCK stars Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Ian Brown's efforts means East Lancashire Hospice is set to share in a £250,000 bonanza.

    The Park Lee Road hospice is one of a number of beneficiaries from an all-star gathering arranged by former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke.

    Other stars involved in the March 2007 Versus Cancer concert included The Charlatans and Peter Hook, Former Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School pupil Nova Rehman helped to pull together the star-packed event, which included partial reunions of both the Stone Roses and The Smiths.

    Nova's sister and father were both diagnosed with cancer within a short space of time, inspiring the Blackburn music impresario to master-mind the concert for the Great Northern Aid Trust.

    The former owner of Nelson-based Phantom Power production company, Nova now manages Rourke and has a host of music contacts.

    East Lancs Hospice will use its share from the concert's proceeds to buy a new hoist to move patients.

      CBGB's Founder Hilly Kristal Dies

    Hilly Kristal, the famed founder of CBGB, died Tuesday at age 75 of complications from lung cancer. A singer/songwriter himself, Kristal ran the club for 33 years, kick-starting the careers of Blondie, the Talking Heads, Television, and the Ramones—to name a few. CBGB closed in 2006, after long legal battles in an attempt to save thousands of dollars in back rent with an historical landmark status. However unsuccessful, the club saw shows from Bad Brains and the Dictators before they finally shut its doors. Since then, Kristal had been running merchandise sales in New York and worldwide, as well as planning to open new clubs in several locations. He is survived by his daughter and son, and will always be remembered for his contribution to punk rock.

      Versus Cancer raises quarter Million Pounds

    Versus Cancer has raised a quarter of a million pounds to benefit cancer charities across the North of England.

    Following the massively successful concert at Manchester's MEN Arena on Friday March 30th this year, which saw unique performances from Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Ian Brown, The Charlatans and many more, The Great Northern Aid Trust, organisers of the Versus Cancer concerts, has announced its first money raise for 2007.

    "It was an amazing night and we're overwhelmed that so many great artists gave up their time for free to make it happen," said Great Northern Aid Trust founder Andy Rourke. "Of course this is just one more step for us, with a DVD due out soon and more events in the pipeline, we hope to raise even more money for cancer charities."

    The biggest beneficiary from the concert will again be the Christie Hospital, a specialist cancer hospital in Manchester, who have received £100,000 for innovative cancer research.

      Morrissey refutes Smiths reunion Rumors


    Devout fans of seminal rockers the Smiths best reach for the tissue box, for the sobbing is about to escalate: Morrissey has confirmed that in fact a Smiths reunion is not in the future. According to a statement, which seeks to derail rampant "rumor mongers," the "one thing the future will not bring is a Smiths reunion tour." The statement continues, claiming Morrissey was approached by numerous promoters and offered up to $75,000,000 to perform alongside axeman Johnny Marr for a tour in 2008 and 2009. The offers, which the Mozzer rejected, did not include either Smiths drummer Mike Joyce or bassist Andy Rourke.

    Further adding to the tear shed, Morrissey has also confirmed that his latest tour, which includes residencies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, will be his last "for the foreseeable future" and that he plans to "go out with some great memories."

      Sex, Cigs and Alcohol

    KEITH RICHARDS’ idea of rock ’n’ roll used to be crashing cars, injecting heroin in front of groupies and trashing hotel rooms.

    On Thursday night he shuffled to the front of the stage at London’s O2 Arena to light up in defiance of the smoking ban.

    Hardly the wild man of old. So whatever happened to our legendary misbehaving music stars?

    Today’s acts still have a taste for Class A drugs — witness the shambling wrecks that are Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty.

    But the over-the-top bizarre behaviour that fascinated millions of fans seems a thing of the past.

    Richards puffing a roll-up to wild cheers from the £150 corporate seats — telling fans it contained cotton wool — would have Keith Moon turning in his grave.

    The Who’s drummer — known as Moon the Loon — was the undoubted king of the swingers.

    He was famous for destroying his drum kit, dressing as a Nazi, blowing up toilets and throwing TV sets out of hotel windows.

    But his most famous moment — later immortalised on an Oasis album cover — was when he drove a Rolls-Royce into a hotel swimming pool during The Who’s first US tour in 1967.

    Moon was celebrating his birthday drinking with cronies at the Holiday Inn in Flint, Michigan, the party culminating with a naked Moon sending the posh motor to a watery grave.

    Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne runs Moon close.

    Among his excesses were biting the heads off a bat and a dove, snorting a line of ants and trying to kill his wife Sharon after one too many.

    But in February 1982 he reached a new low.

    Drunk in his hotel room, he grabbed the only clothes he could find — one of his wife’s dresses.

    He then decided to visit the Alamo, a US national shrine and, caught short, relieved himself against a wall.

    He spent the night in jail and was banned from San Antonio for ten years.

    Led Zeppelin were notorious for their insatiable appetite for groupies.

    But what took place at Seattle’s Edgewater Inn in 1969 has gone down in rock legend.

    The band’s entourage, including drummer John Bonham, discovered they could fish from their hotel room window.

    They caught several small sharks and hung them in the wardrobe.

    But after tiring of this, they decided to involve a groupie in their antics.

    The rumours were that the groupie had sex with one of the sharks.

    Years later, road manager Richard Cole was happy to clear up the misunderstanding.

    He explained: “It wasn’t a shark, it was a red snapper.

    “And it wasn’t some big ritualistic thing; it was in and out and a laugh and the girl wasn’t sobbing — she was a willing participant.”

    Elvis Presley was not only the king of rock ’n’ roll but also the king of rock excess.

    His favourite snack was the Fool’s Gold Loaf, a speciality of a Denver restaurant — a whole loaf, a jar of peanut butter, a jar of grape jelly and a pound of bacon.

    One night, Elvis got the munchies so he rang the restaurant from his Memphis mansion and ordered 22 of the loaves.

    He then flew the 877 miles to Colorado with two buddies on his private jet to tuck in before flying back.

    Punk also spawned its own rebels.

    The Sex Pistols caused national outrage by swearing on teatime TV.

    Guitarist Steve Jones called interviewer Bill Grundy a “dirty f*****” and a “f****** rotter”.

    The Clash’s Paul Simonon and Topper Headon were arrested for shooting racing pigeons while The Stranglers appeared on stage with strippers.

    The last great wild Lead man is Liam Gallagher.

    The lead vocalist of Oasis spent ten years drinking, doing drugs and getting into scrapes with the law.

    The most notorious was in December 2002, when Gallagher and two other band members began fighting each other in a Munich hotel nightclub.

    One fell into a table where five or six large Italians were sitting. They joined in.

    The band’s security men came to help.

    The police arrived and, possibly in an attempt to restore calm, Gallagher kicked one in the chest.

    The fight continued outside, where Gallagher lost two front teeth.

    He narrowly escaped a GBH charge and a two-year prison sentence.

    To date, he’s been banned from an airline, four hotel chains and Channel ferries.

    Sadly, since Gallagher settled into fatherhood, hell-raising has been a dying art.

      Noel wins a Scooter....

    [slow news day.....]

    NOEL GALLAGHER won a scooter and DAVID BECKHAM fragrance in a pub quiz at his local.

    The OASIS legend made a sterling skipper of The Wrong ’Uns at the Islington boozer.

    But missus SARA MACDONALD overruled him on one question.

    It was: Who did the Bond movie producers intend to take over from SEAN CONNERY as 007?

    Sara didn’t think that the answer was Oliver Reed, so changed it and lost a point.

    Their baby is due soon. I reckon they should call the tot Olly if it’s a boy.

      Oasis at Abbey Road Studios London



    Oasis have apparently been hard at work since August 6th recording tracks for their new album. Lucky fans Elisa and "SallyCinnamon" (pictured) met and talked to Liam and Noel Gallagher outside Abbey Road Studios in London. Liam proclaimed the new material to be "Huge" while Noel added everything was coming along fine.

      Be Here Now turns 10

    A decade ago today, Oasis released their bombastic third album, later regarded as one of rock's all-time folies de grandeur. So what does it sound like now?

    Now this is what I call an anniversary. Never mind Diana, or the first Blair victory, or the decade that will soon have passed since the release of Kula Shaker's epochal K - today is the tenth birthday of Oasis' Be Here Now, and anyone who has not yet taken their copy to Record and Tape Exchange should surely give it at least one celebratory play. You'll laugh; you'll cry; best of all, you will surely be transported back to the strange days of 1997, when Oasis's imperial phase began to draw to a close, and the moment of giddy innocence that was Britpop died with them.

    At ten years' remove, you can only marvel at what on earth they thought they were doing. Did Noel Gallagher really listen to a playback of the impossibly over-wrought, soupy, completely meaningless Magic Pie and sign it off? Did no-one listen to the absurdly Bon Jovi-esque intro to Fade In/Out and advise even a slight re-think? As the last five minutes of All Around the World found trumpets colliding with strings, the guitar overdubs piling into infinity and the whole conceit threatening to collapse in on itself, why didn't anybody pause for thought? Most bafflingly of all, isn't "All my people, right here, right now/D'you know what I mean/Yeah yeah/Yeah yeah" among the most woeful choruses ever put to tape?

    What's most baffling of all, perhaps, is that precious few of the critical fraternity caught the whiff of spectacular failure (and though I didn't actually review it, by way of a mea culpa, I include myself in that). The Guardian's review claimed that Be Here Now "validates most if not all of the Gallaghers' boasts about their greatness." The Daily Telegraph told its readers that Be Here Now was simply "a great rock record." Q and awarded BHN the full complement of five stars and compared it to The Beatles' Revolver. NME reckoned it was worth eight of ten; in Mojo, Charles Shaar Murray was so enraptured that he lapsed into patois: "This is Oasis's world domination album. Dem a come fe mess up de area seeeeeeerious."

    What was going on? There was, undoubtedly, a massed desire to somehow prolong the fun that Oasis had commenced in 1994. In several reviews, you could make out an obvious subtext bound up with the fact that many people had (rightly) thought that (What's The Story) Morning Glory? was not nearly as good as Definitely Maybe, but been wrong-footed by its sky-high sales figures. Perhaps most importantly, 1997 was the last stand of the absurdly positive, romanticized, starry-eyed mindset that Britpop fostered. Be Here Now, let us not forget, was not the only dud to be so hysterically lionized; two years before, very similar gasps of appreciation had greeted Blur's The Great Escape.

    As I recall, it took until the end of that year for the penny to drop, when a run of indulgent, arrogant arena shows exposed Oasis's washed-out state, and Liam Gallagher served notice of the strange place at which they'd arrived by dedicating Live Forever to Princess Diana. Not long after, when his elder brother had quit the drugs and moved out of London, there came his own spurt of self-criticism: "It was an album mixed on cocaine. That's why it sounds like it does. Loads and loads of trebly guitars...I wasn't prepared to make things any better. I'd get to a certain point and go, 'Fuck it, that'll do.' We made the record to justify the drug habit."

    So, there you have it: the empty sound of being off your head and convinced of your own brilliance at the start of the Blair era and the endtimes of what was known at the time as - oh, please - Cool Britannia. These days, Be Here Now actually sounds grimly fascinating: a crystallization of its time whose absence of restraint (try, for example, timing the length of the intros) is really quite something. For those of us who are occasionally partial to the musical equivalent of visiting graveyards, might it be time for the obligatory 'Collectors' Edition' and DVD?

      Doherty Arrested Again - Morrissey US Tour Dates



    In what will likely log as his damning arrest among many, many others, renowned toxin-lovin' Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty has again been taken into custody for alleged possession of narcotics, NME.com reports. Banned from London following his last arrest for possession of heroin, crack cocaine, ketamine, and cannabis, Doherty was allowed a brief return by the courts to perform at last night's Virgin Festival event. But around 2 A.M. following his performance, a vehicle Doherty was riding in was pulled over by police in East London. The 28-year-old rocker was subsequently arrested and currently sits in jail awaiting bail. Due to face sentencing in his previous drug arrests Sept. 4, Doherty was warned by District Judge Davinder Lachlar at his last court hearing (Aug. 7), stating his sentencing would be based upon his progress and conduct up to the date. Uh, oops.

    In a very odd, coincidental twist of fate, XFM.co.uk reports that former Libertines band mate and current Dirty Pretty Things frontman Carl Barat will perform inside the walls of London's Pentonville Prison, the same prison in which Barat visited Doherty four years ago. The prison, which Doherty was sentenced to for burglarizing Barat's instruments for drug money, is hosting an event in partnership with the Wasted Youth Campaign to address the high suicide rates of youths in custody. With his latest arrest, will Doherty be issued a front row ticket?

    Morrissey tour dates:

    In what could be an attempt to meet his final resting place a little sooner, the king of mope Morrissey has mapped an exhaustive, possibly throat-cracking nationwide tour highlighted by residencies in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City. His tour, commencing with a gig in Las Vegas, will see the sexy vegan perform four shows at San Francisco's Fillmore venue, before heading south to Los Angeles and logging an 11-night stand at the City of Angels' Palladium. Next, following a few assorted shows en route, will appear at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom five nights, and wrap with shows in Boston, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

      Manchester VS Cancer Concert DVD

    Jim Spencer is currently mixing the 5.1 audio for the latest Manchester Versus Cancer concert recorded in March this year. The lineup for the event features Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, The Charlatans, Echo and the Bunnymen & Ian Brown to name a few.

    The DVD is planned for release late in the year and also includes Jims mixes from last years event featuring New Order(Joy Division set), Johnny Marr, Badly drawn boy and many others.

    There are some really special moments in both concerts, the New order set is amazing and Johnny Marrs version of How soon is now is blinding.

    Jim reports:" Noel's set is going to be on the dvd. He played 10 songs and I think it likely that 1 or 2 of those will be included in the dvd extra's menu, whilst the rest will be on the main discs.

    As for the release date, the people running the show hope to have it out by Xmas, but i think that is a little optomistic. If not then early next year.

    The set sounds great by the way!"

      Noel supplies DVD with alternative Commentary

    Oasis To Release New Material This Year, Tour Documentary And New Track Set For October.

    Oasis are releasing their long-awaited tour film Lord Don't Slow Me Down in two months time.

    Although the band aren't planning a new album until 2008, fans will be able to get hold of some new material when the DVD of the on-the-road documentary is released on October 29.

    The film follows the band through 26 countries on their last world tour and features a brand new Noel Gallagher song - the title track, 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' - on the film's credits.

    "It's quite rocking, it's just 12-bar blues really, but it's a good song." Noel told NME "It got left off the last album because it was the same verse all the way until the end, but it's kind of locked into that now because it appears at the end of the film."

    The black and white documentary, shot by Baillie Walsh, mixes live footage with exclusive backstage access that sees the band hanging out with Kasabian in New York, Liam Gallagher meeting his self-proclaimed "spiritual heir" Charlotte Church and Noel going guitar shopping and winding-up interviewers in Japan.

    Any good? Liam Gallagher thinks so...

    "I buzzed off myself," he declared after a screening. "I played a blinder."

    An edited version of the documentary appeared on British TV last year, but the two-disc DVD features a series of extras.

    The band's triumphant homecoming show at the City Of Manchester Stadium from July 2, 2005 is featured in HD, along with a Q&A between fans and Noel.

    However, Oasis have saved the best to last, as the DVD will feature the band themselves providing providing an alternative 'director's commentary' to the film.

    We're thinking 'Wibbling Rivalry' (the epic NME interview released as a single on Fierce Panda back in 1995) over two hours.

    "I'm doing the DVD commentary, yes" Noel declared enthusiastically when NME asked him about the project. "I begged them to let me do it. I'm going to have some fun with that."

    Oasis have announced they are to release new material this year -tour documentary 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down'.

    The DVD release will feature the full-length film - and edited version was shown on British TV last year - along with a host of extras.

    Footage of a Noel Gallagher fan Q&A is also included, while the whole band have provided an alternative 'directors commentary' to the film.

    Additionally, the release will feature a second disc with footage from the band's homecoming show at Manchester City's Eastlands Stadium on July 2, 2005.

      How Tony Wilson changed Music

    Tony Wilson, the music mogul who has died at 57, leaves behind an enormous musical legacy.

    Tony Wilson had been suffering from cancer before his death. He played an integral role in establishing Manchester as a cultural centre, signing bands such as New Order, whose distinctive sound turned them into a global success.

    The Factory label and the Hacienda nightclub were two of his best-known projects.

    However, he was also recognised for his talent-spotting ability and his foresight in predicting the popularity of downloaded music.

    Here are five ways that Wilson changed the music industry.

    BRINGING PUNK TO THE MAINSTREAM

    Wilson, who had been working as a reporter at Granada TV, gave the Sex Pistols their television debut in 1976.

    He had seen the punk pioneers' legendary gig at the Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall that June.

    And he booked them for the second series of his Granada music programme So It Goes.

    The audience also included future stars such as Morrissey, Mark E Smith and Mick Hucknall, who were inspired by the event to form their own bands.

    Only about 40 people were in the crowd, according to author David Nolan, who wrote a book hailing the concert The Gig that Changed the World.

    "What those Mancunians did was astonishing," he told the BBC last year.

    "They sent club culture around the world; they sent the independent record scene around the world; they took a style of music around the world."

    SETTING UP FACTORY RECORDS

    Joy Division, New Order and Electronic were among the acts on the roster at Manchester's Factory Records.

    New Order's hits included True Faith, World in Motion and Blue Monday It has often been said that Wilson wrote contracts in his own blood, saying the artists owned everything and the label owned nothing.

    Whether this story was true or not, the principle certainly was.

    It was a powerful and revolutionary statement of creative freedom - but it was also financial suicide.

    Albums were overdue and over-budget when they were delivered.

    New Order's Blue Monday became the biggest-selling 12" single in UK history.

    But Factory lost money on every copy sold because of the intricate die-cut design of its sleeve, which looked like a floppy disc.

    Wilson also claimed that Factory was on the verge of signing Oasis and Pulp before it went bankrupt in 1992.


    ESTABLISHING THE HACIENDA NIGHTCLUB

    Rob Gretton, who was the manager of Joy Division and New Order, decided there should be a venue that played the kind of music he liked to hear.


    The Hacienda was an integral part of 2002 film 24-Hour Party People
    The Hacienda was funded by New Order and Factory Records, and as well as being a magnet for clubbers, it also hosted gigs - such as Madonna's first UK appearance.

    "The Hacienda changed Manchester forever," said Vaughan Allen, chief executive of the city's Urbis centre, which is currently hosting an exhibition about the club.

    "It did 25 years ago what MySpace does today, bringing together creative people to create something new," he told the BBC last month.

    The venue was officially opened by risque comedian Bernard Manning.

    He departed quickly, however - some accounts say he left his fee behind because he was so unimpressed by the sound system, while others claim it was owing to the fact that his act went down badly with the crowd.


    RUNNING THE "IN THE CITY" CONFERENCE

    Set up in 1992, it is the UK's largest and most influential forum for finding new talent and discussing the future of the industry.


    Oasis played at In the City before they had their first hit, Supersonic It allows the music industry to run the rule over the cream of the UK's new and unsigned bands.

    And it has helped launch the careers of almost every major British act of the last 15 years.

    Oasis, Radiohead and Suede played at the first In the City.

    Muse and Coldplay appeared in 1998; Snow Patrol performed in 2000; and The Arctic Monkeys put in an appearance five years later.

    Wilson was renowned as "one of the great spotters of music talent", said Alan McGee, who founded Creation - the home of Oasis and Primal Scream.

    "He was a complete inspiration," McGee told the NME website following Wilson's death.


    PIONEERING LEGAL MUSIC DOWNLOADS

    Wilson was one of the first people to realise the full implications of the illegal downloading revolution that Napster ushered in at the turn of the millennium, and to turn it into an opportunity.

    Napster had let fans download songs without paying royalties
    Back in 1999 - four years before iTunes was launched - Wilson was preparing a site called Music33, which sold tracks from local labels for 33p each.

    He said the 33p price-tag was based on an honest assessment of the costs of digital delivery.

    However, the site failed to take off and the cost of digital music was set much higher by the major players in the coming years.

      Alex James has hair tips for Liam

    Alex James: 'Blur will be around forever'

    The Bassist also has a pop at Liam Gallagher

    Speaking to NME.COM, the bassist poured scorn on the regular split reports.

    He said:"I think we are kind of stuck together forever- one way or another. There will always be Blur somehow or other, I think."

    James also had a dig at Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, saying that the frontman's hair was bad.

    He said Gallagher was "starting to look a bit like Kevin Keegan. And I'd never have any 80s cut. It was truly a tragic time for hair".
