      Ashcroft & Co Rock The Theatre at MSG



    The Verve
    Madison Square Garden Theater, New York City


    It's fitting that we're writing about reunited Britpop titans the Verve the same day Coldplay's new single hit the web. Watching Richard Ashcroft sway and heave last night, we couldn't stop thinking about how Chris Martin swiped his rock star act from the willowy Verve front man. But while Martin often seems to be playing a rock star rather than being a rock star, there's no question Ashcroft is the real thing. Immediately after walking out from the wings last night, he glared at us in the photo pit, angrily pointed and then proceeded to flip a massive bird our way while launching into the crushing "A New Decade." There was no real rhyme or reason behind the gesture (we never stole Ashcroft's girl or anything) — that's just what rock stars do. Ask Liam Gallagher.

    The Verve's reunion tour rings truer than similar treks because they're not just simply recycling hits. Along with the obligatory "Bittersweet Symphony" (forever undeniable) and "The Drugs Don't Work" (somewhat lifeless), the four piece broke out two new songs and several older tunes that harked back to the days before they worried about working pop hooks into their death-obsessed psych-rock. And, truth be told, the Verve seemed way more excited to play early '90s tracks like the cascading noise-fest "Already There" and the epic "Gravity Grave" than most of the more popular tracks from their breakthrough LP, Urban Hymns. To wit, one of the new songs, "Sit and Wonder" was a dark swirl of feedback and near-tribal chanting — safe to say it has zero chance of breaking through a la "Bittersweet Symphony" here in the States. (The other new one, "Love Is Noise," didn't sound like the Verve new or old — the hi-hat heavy rave-up came off like a Bloc Party anthem.)
    But one of the best moments came when Ashcroft peeled a banana, ate it and threw the remains onto the stage mid-song ... and made it look cool. Let's see Chris Martin pull that off.

      Full Glastonbury Lineup Leaks Early

    Glastonbury organisers planned to announce the full line-up at midnight on Tuesday. They did not immediately return calls today.

    The leak is the latest in a long line of misfortunes to befall this year’s event. Organisers have faced a barrage of criticism after choosing Jay-Z as the festival’s headliner.

    High-profile musicians, including Oasis member Noel Gallagher, have asked why the festival has chosen a hip-hop act instead of continuing its rock tradition.

    "If it ain't broke don't fix it. If you start to break it then people aren't going to go,” Gallagher complained.

    “I'm sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go 'Kylie Minogue?' I don't know about it. But I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."

    Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has defended the choice.

    “Jay-Z is far from the first hip-hop artist to perform at Glastonbury, as one might assume from some strangely hysterical press reports."

    While tickets have sold out within hours in previous years, this year sales were down.

    After 37,500 tickets were left unpurchased, organisers were forced to reopen registration.

      Phil Collins V Noel Gallagher yet again

    Phil Collins has announced that he is retiring from music.

    Having completed a reunion tour with Genesis, the multi-instrumentalist has said in a newspaper interview that he has no plans to tour or make another album.

    Collins told The Times that he will continue to write, simply because he does not know how to stop.

    The interview quotes Collins as saying he is being more interested in his collection of memorabilia from the Battle Of The Alamo.

    Collins added: "It's not that unusual for a man of my age who grew up reading Davy Crockett."

    Collins was speaking ahead of his appearance on Sky Arts TV series 'Songbook'.

    But he also re-ignited an old feud with Noel Gallagher. The Oasis man famously said ahead of the 2005 general election: "Vote Labour: if you don't and the Tories get in, (Collins) is threatening to come back from Switzerland, and none of us want that.

    Collins said of the comment: "I don't care if he likes my music or not. I do care if he starts telling people I'm a wanker because of my politics. It's an opinion based on an old misunderstood quote."

      On the road with Oasis

    The fights between Oasis' Liam and Noel are legendary. In 1994, on the band's first American tour, tensions bubbled over so much that Liam hurled a chair at Noel. Then during the 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' tour in 2000 arguments got so bad it prompted Noel to jack in the tour and head home.

    And during the recording for'(What's The Story) Morning Glory', the duo used a cricket bat on each other to relieve in-studio stress.

    Now Ballie Walsh, the man who spent a year with the Gallaghers during their 2005/2006 'Don't Believe The Truth' tour, has revealed the brothers' highly-organised system for preventing further scraps: refusing to go out together.

    Walsh, whose first motion picture, Flashbacks Of A Fool, has just opened in UK cinemas filmed the band for his Lord Don't Slow Me Down documentary film, released on DVD last October.

    He explained the Gallaghers operate a "one day on, one day off" policy with regards to socialising, only going out to party after gigs on alternate nights so they never have to drink together, therefore avoiding battles. "What happened is Noel went out for one night and had a rest the next night when Liam went out. he revealed.

    When asked if he thought this was over the top, Walsh said: "We'll would I want to tour with my brother? No. I think how they manage to keep it working is great. The fact that they've survived this long and they're still doing it [touring], and they go on stage every night well, it works."

    Walsh would not be drawn on details of the Gallaghers' partying antics, although he did say their social schedule played havoc with his own sleeping patterns, as he had to go out and film either Noel or Liam as they took their turn to have a night out. "I never got a bloody rest!" he laughed.

    The director went on to explain that while it might seem like a blast travelling the world with Oasis, it was in fact very dull - something, which may be down to the Gallaghers' timetable quashing potential hell-raising nights out.

    "It's insanely boring, he said of the long hours of hanging around before gigs and travelling.

    "You go from dressing room to stage, to hotel to coach, to dressing room to stage. That's all you've got!"

      Wiley wades in to Glasto row

    Grime ace Wiley reckons Noel Gallagher is against Jay-Z playing Glastonbury because he feels the honour should go to a UK artist.

    The Oasis fella, 41, opened a can of worms when he became the most high-profile star to suggest the Glasto signing may have been a bit of a faux pas.

    Fans seem to agree, with the festival failing to sell out immediately, unlike previous years.

    Wiley, whose tune Wearing My Rolex is set for the Top 10 this weekend, told me: “What Noel means is: ‘How come a US artist is headlining Glastonbury?’

    “He doesn’t mean urban, he doesn’t mean black. Noel is just upset because he’s not getting his band on there.

    “He should stop worrying about what other people are doing.

    “He’s got money, he should stop being greedy.

    “Personally I like Jay-Z, and respect him.”

      Liam & Noel Gallagher can't party together...

    www.live4ever.us

    Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher never party together anymore, according to film director and documentary maker Ballie Walsh.

    Walsh, who produced last year's Oasis DVD 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' and is currently promoting 'Flashbacks of a Fool', claims the pair operate a "one day on, one day off" system as they are unable to spend time together under the influence of alcohol.

    Instead, he said, they go out separately when on tour with their system deciding whose turn it is to go out drinking.

    Speaking about his time filming the band, Walsh told NME: "What happened is Noel went out one night and had a rest the next night when Liam went out."

    The filmmaker defended the brothers' actions, arguing that it was impressive they had managed to stay together as a band for over a decade.

    He said: "Well, would I want to go on tour with my brother? No. I think how they manage to keep it working is great. The fact that they've survived this long and they're still doing it [touring], and they go on stage together every night - well it works."

      Courteeners star lashes out over Oasis comparisons

    Courteeners rocker Liam Fray is sick of being compared to Oasis Liam Gallagher.

    The Mancunian, whose band are currently in the Top 10 with debut album St Jude, has been accused of being just as lippy as his namesake following catty remarks about their rivals.

    But despite having been inspired by the Gallagher brothers and hailed by U2 and Morrissey as the best British band to emerge since Oasis, the new Liam says he is tired of being tarred with the same brush as his predecessor.

    He said: "Some people seem to think we are bad lad bruisers because we are from the north of England, but it is just southern media bias.

    "I was inspired by Oasis, though. I remember being in the back of my dad's car when I was 10 and hearing Wonderwall for the first time and knowing that was what I wanted to do. None of our songs sound like Oasis, but people always say that.

    "If you see Noel or Liam on the front of a magazine, you are going to buy it because they are funny.

    "We are similar because we don't tell lies. There's no marketing campaign around us and no media training, as you can probably tell.

    "We have wanted to do this since we were small, so to finally get the record out and for it to do well is buzzing.

    "It is everything I have been working towards since I was in nursery. You choose your mates and the social circles and the albums you decide to nick off your pals at school shaped from that. It's an album that has been 22 years in the making."

    Meanwhile, he says the fact the band are being criticised means they are already a success - but insists there's no Blur versus Oasis rivalry on the horizon.

    Liam said: "As anybody starts to get successful, people try to shoot them down. But if they want to say negative stuff, we will just silence them with good songs."

    The band have also announced another UK tour, which sees them play Dundee's Fat Sams (October 6) Glasgow's Barrowland (October 7).

    They're also heading to T in the Park this summer for a show on the festival's Radio 1/NME stage on Saturday, July 12.

      Andy Cowan: Noises Off

    Don't be a stick-in-the-mud, Noel. Jay-Z will be a hit at Glastonbury

    The fuss over the news that Jay-Z is to headline this year's Glastonbury festival has caught me by surprise. When I first heard, I thought Jay-Z was a natural fit – the world's biggest hip-hop star at the UK's most forward-thinking music festival. Noel Gallagher disagreed: "Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music... I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury," he said. "It's wrong." As a hip-hop fan, that struck a nerve with me. So when the BBC asked me for a comment, I gave them a quick, equally ill-considered quote: "These are the typical reactionary views of a pampered has-been." It's not that I have a problem with Noel or Oasis, it's just that I can't stand such monomania in the broad church of modern music.

    The next day, I awoke to an in-box full of emails from irate Oasis fans; many reiterated Noel's point, that Glastonbury was about "indie rock" and nothing but, and how dare that big scary bogeyman Jay-Z spoil their beautiful garden party? Their response exposed one myth: that the old tribes of pop have all but dispersed, making way for a generation of technologically savvy, cosmopolitan consumers who cherry-pick the finest sounds from any number of contrasting genres. The furore also prompts a bigger question: is the Jay-Z row a storm in a teacup, or symptomatic of a far deeper malaise?

    The hostility you see on the NME message boards – "we don't need this hip-hop wank" ran one posting – is hard to explain. Perhaps it's simply the prospect for "indie rock" fans that Jay-Z's appearance will force them out of their comfort zone. Or perhaps, as Emily Eavis, the co-organiser of this year's Glastonbury, alluded to in The Independent on Tuesday, at the heart of this row may be something more troubling than differences in musical taste: race. It would be interesting to know what the reaction would be if it weren't Jay-Z headlining, but Eminem.

    British festival audiences have had their musical tolerance tested in the past, and found it wanting. In 2004, when 50 Cent (right) and his G-Unit crew played Reading, they were viciously bottled by a braying mob (don't take my word for it, go to YouTube). 50 was remarkably sanguine about it. "That was fun," he laughed. "It reminded me of when I first started. How do you react to it? You start to take it all in while you're up there and laugh – what are you going to do, get mad?"

    That was an exception, and I don't think it'll happen to Jay-Z this year. His show isn't full of the cheesy rituals that you normally get in a hip-hop show: he's very

    focused. He knows how to whip up a lethargic crowd with nothing but his superstar presence. But he's also part of a tradition in hip-hop of audience interaction – as opposed to the kind of rock gig where a band will play a song, wait for the applause, and carry on, often without so much as an aside to the crowd between songs. In contrast, Jay-Z will pick a member of the audience and rap straight to them for a minute at a time. It gives his shows a laser-beam intensity, and if people can approach it with an open mind, his appearance at Glastonbury will win a lot of converts. (One of the highlights of last year's festival was Dizzee Rascal joining the Arctic Monkeys on stage.)

    The boy from Brooklyn's cause will be helped by the fact that, like the Arctic Monkeys, he understands the power of the special guest appearance. Last year at the Royal Albert Hall, Jay-Z brought on stage Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. How fitting it would be if hip-hop's biggest act issued an invitation to indie-rock's pin-up boy at Glastonbury in June.

      Noel Gallagher Fans Attack

    After L4E ran Black Book Media's article Noel Gallagher Jealous Definitely, Racist Maybe it caused Ben Barna's usually sparingly used comments box to overflow with your messages of concern. See Ben's response below:

    Earlier today, a concerned gentleman e-mailed BlackBook demanding I issue an apology for my post on Noel Gallagher’s negative reaction to Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury (the gentleman doesn't think it's right). Apparently the article was picked up by an Oasis fansite (Live4ever.us), causing the minions of Oasis Nation to unleash their wrath upon me in the comments. Throughout the day, my colleagues and I shared laughs over gems such as: “ben barna you have your head jammed up or [sic] politically correct ass,” while another lauded “Classic idiocy from a low-grade journalist who clearly hasn’t done their research.” At least they consider me a journalist. Thanks guys! See the comments yourself for the full effect. What pissed them off so much, was that apparently I called the fragile Mr. Gallagher a racist.

    I have since learned that you cannot use such a loaded term when discussing someone as beloved as Noel, which is why Emily Eavis, co-founder of Glastonbury, tip-toed around it. Allow me to address those upset by the post, in all caps, so you don’t miss it this time: EMILY EAVIS INSINUATED THAT NOEL GALLAGHER’S COMMENTS WERE RACIALLY MOTIVATED. I SAID THEY WERE NOT. I SAID THEY WERE BASED ON JEALOUSY. Read the last sentence again, and maybe you’ll get it. Take your time, no rush. What I found so delicious about this whole episode is that everyone who isn’t a rabid Oasis fan (i.e. doesn’t spend their time on Oasis fan forums) didn’t interpret the post as a anti-Gallagher smear. Meaning, fans let their commendable passion for Noel Gallagher and his band override those equally commendable reading comprehension skills.

    I am a huge fan of Oasis—I grew up with their music, and I love the Gallagher brothers. Noel is a brilliant songwriter, and Liam has one of the most distinct voices in modern rock. Five years ago, after leaving the hospital after an 18-day stay, the first song I listened to on my walk home was “Cast No Shadow.” It was inspiring. But, having said that, I will never ever let my love for Oasis alter the way I read and understand sentences. That would be dangerous and irresponsible. But I’m glad you guys do, because this last day has been an absolute hoot.

      Just Another Wannabe Oasis Act ?

    Review: Courteeners show they deserve 'new Oasis' tag ****



    THE latest "must see" band of the moment, The Courteeners, delighted a bustling Liquid Room last night with the kind of performance that has already led critics to dub them "the new Oasis".

    Not only does Courteeners singer Liam Fray share the same first name as Liam Gallagher, he also bestows the same cocky swagger so closely associated with many Manchester bands. And just like Oasis themselves, the dishevelled looking quartet from Middleton have a nifty line in sing-along tunes. Devoid of any pretence, the band simply turn up the volume on their guitars, swig back the beer, and play a few songs. And that's about as complex as it gets really.

    A large screen print displaying the cover artwork from the band's debut album (St. Jude) hangs from the back of the stage, the band's amplifiers encased by large picture frames. The crowd, meanwhile, jump up and down as if cheering on their high school at a swimming gala. Fray, though, just stands there – a mixture of concentration and bemusement across his face.

    "I can't believe all this," he says, clearly taken aback by the wild reception his band is receiving. "It's weird for us to be experiencing such a big crowd."

    And he's right. Two years ago The Courteeners' name might have been mistaken for a fan club of an old popular British car. Now they're being touted as the next big thing by none other than John Squire, guitarist of the Stone Roses. That other, more famous musical poet laureate, Morrissey, would begrudgingly agree Liam Fray has a poetic way of singing about everyday life (loving relationships, going to the pub, getting by, etc). The Courteeners even sound like The Smiths: melodic and tuneful, yet possessing the punch and aggressiveness of The Arctic Monkeys.

    One after the other, the set list is reeled off with all the speed of a busy housewife ticking off her shopping list at the supermarket. The audience waste no time turning Aftershow into a call-and-response chant with the band, the anthemic What Took You So Long? discarded with like an empty crisp packet. There's barely a second to breathe, and when a roadie comes to switch Fray's broken microphone halfway through the gig, it comes as a brief, yet welcome, respite.

    Later on, Fray's band members left the 22-year-old on his own to sing a meaningful number that echoed a more youthful Billy Bragg. Yet, despite shouts for an encore after the head-charging finale (Not 19 Forever), the band refused to come back out for another song. Disappointing for the fans, perhaps; however it proves this fine young band are neither egotistical nor the type to pander to anyone.

    Liam Gallagher and co. might want to pay special attention to the young Mancunian upstarts closing in on them.

      Noel Gallagher: Jealous Definitely, Racist Maybe

    [All views expressed in this article are those of the authors, and do not necessarily represent the views of live4ever.us]

    Stumbling across this story about Noel Gallagher sounding off against a fellow artist has us feeling all 1996-y, when Oasis mattered, and our dad surprised us with a new Nintendo 64. But this time it isn’t fellow Brit-poppers Damon Albarn or Richard Ashcroft getting singed by Gallagher's molten tongue—it’s the untouchable Hova. Gallagher is upset because his beloved summer festival Glastonbury, the centerpiece of Europe’s summer-fest smorgasbord, has booked Jay-Z as its headlining act, and attributes lagging ticket sales (it has yet to sell out, unlike previous years) on the American rapper’s presence. “If it ain't broke, don't fix it," the-brother-who-writes-all-the-songs told the BBC.

    He’s upset because Glastonbury’s headliners are traditionally rock acts, and Hova riffs from his head, not from a Les Paul. “If you break it, people ain’t gonna go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. No way. No. It’s wrong.” Lucky for Jay-Z, Gallagher doesn’t curate Glastonbury (although his band headlined it twice), so his spot on the bill looks safe. Glastonbury’s co-organizer Emily Eavis hinted at something more sinister lurking beneath Noel’s words, but stopped short of blurting it out: “There is also an interesting undercurrent in the suggestion that a black, U.S. hip-hop artist shouldn’t be playing in front of what many perceive to be a white, middle-class audience. I’m not sure what to call it, at least not in public, but this is something that causes me some disquiet.” Here’s where we intercede and remind Ms. Eavis that racism and jealousy are two very different things.

      Weller Reveals More Details on Gallagher Collaboration

    Paul Weller has commented further about working with Oasis’ Noel Gallagher and former Blur musician Graham Coxon on his new solo album 22 Dreams and has also revealed details of the possible first single.

    Gallagher appears on “Echoes Round The Sun” alongside fellow Oasis member Gem Archer, and the album track is expected to be the first single released on May 26, a double A-side with “Have You Made Your Mind Up”.

    Weller who previously helped out on Oasis’ Champagne Supernova told BBC news this week that a new collaboration was a long time coming. He said: "Well me and Noel have been talking about trying to write something for years now. He had the idea for the backing track and I just put the tune and the words on top."

    Weller also adds that Oasis fans could be disappointed that the Gallagher doesn’t sing on the track, saying: "He's not singing on it, he's playing a lot of keyboards and some bass which is not necessarily the first thing you'd think of."

    Graham Coxon features on 22 Dreams album track ‘Black River’ and Weller says they "worked on that early last year” adding that “Graham plays drums, backing vocals and guitars."

    Weller also commented on the collaborations in general saying: "I think among most musicians you just get on with it and enjoy it, and it's fun and just a joy to do."

    For more details on the new studio album and for the full 22 Dreams tracklisting, click here.

    Meanwhile, Paul Weller is back on stage. You can see him at the following venues next month:

    Victoria Theatre, Halifax (May 5)
    Victoria Hall, Stoke (6)
    Empress Ballroom, Blackpool (8)

      No Oasis 02 Arena residency

    Press speculation about Oasis playing a residency at London's O2 Centre later this year is pure nonsense.

    An Oasis Management spokesman said:

    "Oasis simply don't do residencies. The O2 Arena is one of a number of London venues that's been considered for a show later on this year."

      New Oasis Photo Gallery



    The Gallagher brothers perform with Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs at an Virgin Megastore instore in 1994. Bonehead left the band in 1999 (and was replaced by Gem Archer) and went on to form a band called Moondog One with Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke of The Smiths.


    Oasis have recently announced their return to the live arena - a string of North American dates in August and September and some UK appearances, although they've denied rumours of a residency at the O2. Noel said the O2 Arena is "too Americanised for me, and it's too far away. Any gig you can get to by boat that hasn't got a beach is wrong".

      Hip Hop Editor labels Noel Gallagher a "Has Been"

    Hip-Hop Connection editor Andy Cowan has described Oasis star Noel Gallagher as a "has-been".

    He hit back at comments Gallagher made about the arrival of hip-hop music at Glastonbury Festival being "wrong", describing the rocker's views as "reactionary".

    The guitarist suggested yesterday that Jay-Z's addition to the Glastonbury bill was the reason behind the lower number of ticket registrations for this year's event.

    Cowan told the BBC: "These are the typical reactionary views of a pampered has-been.

    "Having had the grave misfortune of seeing Oasis play Glastonbury in 1995 - a lumpen, turgid mess of a set - Gallagher himself has set the bar very low, and I've no doubt Jay-Z will be a huge success this year."

    Festival organiser Emily Eavis also responded to the remarks, pointing out that urban acts including De La Soul, Cyprus Hill and The Roots had all played the summer bash before.

    Glastonbury Festival takes place on June 27-79. The full lineup will be announced on May 1.

      Paul Weller Unites Oasis and Blur


    Once upon a time, Oasis and Blur in the same room would have almost guaranteed fisticuffs. But now Paul Weller has done the seemingly impossible and brought two of the biggest warring bands of the '90s to the same record...sort of.

    The Modfather has recruited both Noel Gallagher and Graham Coxon for tracks on his new solo double album, 22 Dreams.

    Weller previously worked with the Gallaghers, providing guitars on Champagne Supernova on their second album What's The Story, Morning Glory.

    He told Newsbeat they've been trying to figure out a musical collaboration ever since.

    He said: "Well me and Noel have been talking about trying to write something for years now.


    Noel has recently spoken out about rapper Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury
    "He had the idea for the backing track and I just put the tune and the words on top."

    The track in question, Echoes Round The Sun, also features Noel's bandmate Gem Archer. It's expected to be released as a double-A side with Have You Made Up Your Mind on 26 May.

    Weller admits that fans expecting to hear Noel singing may be disappointed.

    He said: "He's not singing on it, he's playing a lot of keyboards and some bass which is not necessarily the first thing you'd think of."

    Black River

    Sadly, Coxon does not appear with the Oasis men but lends his musical skills to another track, Black River.

    "We worked on that early last year, Graham plays drums, backing vocals and guitars," said Weller.

    "I think among most musicians you just get on with it and enjoy it, and it's fun and just a joy to do."

    Of the younger crop of UK bands, Weller revealed he's a big fan of The Enemy. They performed together at a charity event in London earlier in the year.

    Weller said, in particular, he's a fan of singer Tom Clarke's songwriting.

    He said: "I just think it's nice to hear a band that's got something to say and just putting some effort into the lyrics.

    "There's a lot of good music out there but no one has startled me, lyrically, but Tom and the band seem to be doing it."

    22 Dreams is released on 2 June.

      Noel On Glastonbury And The New Oasis Album

    Noel Gallagher has criticised the decision to have a hip hop act as the headline for the Glastonbury Festival.

    The Oasis guitarist said having rapper Jay-Z at the festival is the reason it has not sold out this year.

    He also said the event's organisers had changed things too much and that it was "wrong" to have a hip hop headline act.

    There were 100,000 tickets sold for Glastonbury on the first day, but in past years all tickets had sold out in a matter of hours.

    Gallagher said: "If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    "If you start to break it then people aren't going to go. I'm sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.

    "Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go 'Kylie Minogue?'

    "I don't know about it. But I'm not having hip hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."

    Oasis headlined the main stage at Glastonbury in 1995 and 2004, with the event selling out on both occasions.

    Gallagher also rubbished recent stories saying that Oasis were ready to "do a Prince" and have a residency at London's O2 Arena.

    "We'll never play the O2. We went there to see Led Zeppelin and to be honest the gig was fantastic, but it was the most soul destroying venue I've ever been to.

    "And much to our manager and agent's disappointment we came back and said we would never play there

    "So it means we are going to have to do 640 nights at Earl's Court, I would have thought.

    "It's too Americanised for me, and it's too far away. Any gig you can get to by boat that hasn't got a beach is wrong."

    New album

    He did confirm that Oasis seventh studio album is complete.

    "That's finished. All done. We're just kind of waiting to get a record deal and get it out.

    "We've not managed to get a title yet. We're in the middle of doing the art work. Down to a shortlist of about three. The first single? That will be four-and-half minutes long."

    When asked if Oasis were still Britain's band, or whether the Arctic Monkeys had taken over that mantle, Noel admitted: "We'll be bigger than them in terms of ticket sales, but they'll probably sell slightly more records than us.

    "But then again they've got about 20 years on us. So see where they are in 2089, or whenever it is they'll be my age."

      Liam Gallagher joins kids show

    Liam Gallagher is being lined up for a role on super cool kids' TV show Yo Gabba Gabba!

    Star names like Lord Of The Rings hero Elijah Wood, skateboard legend Tony Hawk, sexy R&B star Mya and US indie pop heroes The Shins have already appeared in the smash-hit show on kids' channel Nick Jr.

    Now the Oasis frontman is set to be next after his six-year-old son Gene talked him into accepting an invitation to take up the role.

    A source close to the 35-year-old star said "He thinks the show's really good and he's ready to get involved."

    US-made Yo Gabba Gabba! has become a global hit since it was first screened in America last year.

    It launched in the UK on Nick Jr on February 18 and has quickly become a must-see for kids as well as adults. It is hosted by a character named DJ Lance Rock and five toy monsters - Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex and Toode.

    The show uses its cuddly creatures, wild jokes and catchy music to teach kids of five and under that, for example, it's OK to apologise when they make mistakes or to try foods they have never tasted before.

    Happy

    Christian Jacobs,who co-created the show and takes the role of MC Bat Commander, is also the lead singer in US rock band The Aquabats. He's happy adults can watch the show "without wanting to hang themselves with a guitar string. My Kids don't know who bands like The Shins are or why they're cool but we can introduce them to each other."

    An insider added: "We can't wait to see Liam. His sense of humour is perfectly matched to that of the show."

      Oasis to play 10 nights at O2 in London?


    Some might say they're more suited to a pipe and slippers these days.

    But I can reveal Oasis frontmen Liam and Noel Gallagher are planning a return to their cigarettes and alcohol heyday. I hear the lads have been in talks with AEG - the owners of the O2 - about a series of gigs later this year.

    And I'm told the dates at the Dome will pocket the Britpop boys a supersonic £15million. The gigs will follow a series of shows in Canada and the US in August marking the release of the seventh Oasis studio album - recently finished in Los Angeles. A band insider says: "The dates will be a real special event - and the first major rock residency at the O2.

    "There have been lots of pop acts there - the Spice Girls and Prince. And Led Zeppelin did one date. But no band has yet set up camp there for a whole run.

    "They are lining up 10 dates some time in the autumn at the Dome before taking on the rest of the world."

    Their London shows alone will net the band around a cool £1.5million a night.

    The shows will eclipse Liam and Noel Gallagher's legendary weekend at Knebworth in 1996 when they earned a staggering £6million playing to 250,000 fans.

    As yet no other UK shows have been announced, but I also hear they will be announcing a load more US dates.

    Superfans like me will remember the early years, when every trip to America turned into a nightmare - with Noel famously quitting one tour in 1994.

    Let's hope the older and wiser Gallaghers have put their warring ways behind them and finally bury the hatchet - just not in each other.

      Kasabian Test Out New Album on Noel Gallagher

    Kasabian have revealed that they have almost completed their third studio album, despite the obvious distractions.

    "We go to the studio, potter around, eat sandwiches and it's hard to get things finished. We're about 80 per cent done now," said bassist, Chris Edwards talking to The Sunday Mirror.

    Details of the follow up to Empire have been scarce, but songwriter Sergio Pizzorno confirmed that last year’s very limited edition single 'Fast Fuse' will feature on the record.

    "I think it's going to go on the album,” explained Pizzorno, to Uncut’s sister publication, NME. “We've had thousands of people saying we want it on the album, we want it on the album, so it's going to go on."

    "We're sort of in the process," added Pizzorno. "I don't really know when it’s going to be released, but as soon as we think it's ready it'll be out. It's psychedelic this one, it's going to open your mind."

    The band has also revealed that they will test out the new record on their close friend, Noel Gallagher

    He added, "We're going to play it for Noel in a couple of weeks. He speaks his mind."

    Kasabian will headline Creamfields and Scotland’s Hydro Connect festivals this summer. See www.myspace.com/kasabian for details.

      What's in a band name?

    Here are the stories behind the monikers

    So how do bands end up with their names? Is there a band-naming website? Well, yes, actually, but none of these acts needed it. Gavin Cumine gets etymological



    When Lou Reed moved into his new apartment in New York in the early Sixties he came across a book called The Velvet Underground, by Michael Leigh, which detailed various underground sexual practices of the early Sixties.

    In 1977 post-industrial Manchester Ian Curtis was reading The House of Dolls by by Yehiel De-Nur. In the novel De-Nur describes joy divisions, which were, allegedly, groups of Jewish women in concentration camps during the Second World War kept for the sexual pleasure of Nazi soldiers.



    In the early nineties the band The Rain were looking for a new lead singer and a change of name. They decided to take on local loudmouth Liam Gallagher as singer. Hanging on the wall of Liam's bedroom, which he shared with brother Noel, was an Inspiral Carpets tour poster. Noel at the time was a roadie for the band. On the poster was one of the venues : the Oasis Leisure Centre in Swindon.

    The beginning of any band's biography is their name. It is the starting point of a band that will accompany its sound for the rest of their career, through success and failure. Some band-names come around by coincidence, careful thought or just simply for the fact that it is a great combination of words that slip off the tongue easily. Here are some of the best stories behind the names.

      New Tour Dates for Western Canada Confirmed

    As rumored on several Oasis websites last week more Canadian Concerts have been added on to the North America mini tour!

    Tickets for Oasis’s Western Canadian dates are proving very popular and selling fast. Following such popular demand Oasisinet is pleased to announce that the band has added two more dates to what has turned into their inaugural Canadian tour. The cities of Winnipeg and Ottawa will now be included in the tour that starts in Seattle, WA and concludes with their headline appearance at the Virgin Festival in Toronto.

      Echoes Round The Sun

    Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller have done cover versions as The Smokin' Mojo Filters, appeared on stage together plenty of times and no doubt often call each other up to complain about young people nowadays. But the pair have never written a song together until Echoes Round the Sun, due to appear on Weller's ninth solo album, 22 Dreams.

    “Noel came down to the studio with this loop he'd never been able to do anything with. He played the bass and the piano and then Gem [Archer, Oasis guitarist] played guitar on top. It's a top tune,” Weller has revealed.

    I've heard it and have to agree: Noel's bass dominates, pounding through the song in thick slabs, pausing only for a basic piano breakdown. Archer's guitar feeds back enjoyably, Bollywood-style strings add drama and the whole thing motors along at a terrific pace.

    It's one of many signs that Weller is feeling rejuvenated after his Lifetime Achievement Brit last year. The new album (released 2 June) is a wide-ranging double, with 21 tracks that include trad folk on Light Nights, racing soul on A Dream Reprise, winsome balladry on Black River (which stars another big Britpop name, Graham Coxon) and One Bright Star, an oddity seemingly designed for ballroom dancing. He sounds like he's having fun, playing with his mates and experimenting a little. And why shouldn't he?

      Gallagher Brother Spins and Tells....


    Dennis (Pictured with Paul Gallagher) from Phil and Paul's DJ set in Belgium on the weekend.

    Dennis got to ask both some questions about the new Oasis album, and although they were both "hammered" they gave the same information.



    - 11-12 songs (Noel is yet undecided)

    - No album title yet

    - A lot more RNR then the last 2 albums, songs are longer as well, and more guitar orientated.

    - Phil has heard 4 songs, Paul has heard 7 or so.

    - They said the Album is out, second week of August.

    Dennis : "If it's true I don't know, but as i said before, they both said the same thing, so it must have been rehearsed or something."

      The 2 Noel's enjoy Stones Premiere After Party


    THE two NOEL's enjoyed a night on the sauce at the Groucho club last night.

    Both GALLAGHER and FIELDING were spotted looking a touch worse for wear after carrying on their night having earlier attended the premiere of ROLLING STONES film, Shine A Light.

    While Gallagher blended in with the rest of his party, the same could not be said of Fielding, who stuck out a mile wearing a furry hat, a green leather jacket capped off with his now trademark red clown boots - and a hairdryer.

    Band-mate Ronnie Wood said his favourite Martin Scorsese film is Raging Bull.

    Describing the new film, Jagger said: "It's a bit different. You feel like you're on the stage. It's a good time to do it and I thought Marty (Scorsese) would be a good person to do it."

    He added: "I'm very pleased with it and I'm very glad to be bringing it here. I've seen it quite a few times but when you see it on a big screen it's a bit strange!"

    Band-mate Ronnie Wood also heaped praised on Scorsese. He said: "It's just an honour to work with him. It was over in a flash."

      Oasis Legend Caught Streaking In The US

    The Oasis Newsroom

    Footage has appeared on YouTube of Oasis wildman Liam Gallagher streaking while recording the bands seventh studio in the US.

    It shows Liam, 35, running naked past a surprised local news reporter April Fooole during a live report last month.

    A source close to the band said: "We had all had a few drinks and we saw a live news broadcast taking place, Noel, 40, bet Liam $30,000 he did not have the balls to do it.

    The next thing I see is Liam running down the road completly naked, I was shocked at how fast he could run without any shoes or socks on".

    He added: "Noel's face was a picture, he did not think his younger brother would take up his dare".
