      The Gallagher's Favorite Music of 2008


    The stars pick their best tracks of 2008

    Noel: The MGMT album, Oracular Spectacular. The video for 'Time To Pretend' was great. All the stuff about moving to Paris to shag supermodels and do heroin - not to condone heroin - it's like they want to own a Boeing 747 and be Led Zeppelin. Not plant trees at the local rabbit sanctuary. The Verve's single 'Love Is Noise', is the best thing they've ever done.

    And Weller's album 22 Dreams! He takes such pride in what he does. He means it from the moment he gets up - it's scary. I was in the studio when some of it was recorded, and musically he does stuff I don't understand. It was mental. he and Steve Cradock talk in catchphrases. The only way anything makes sense is to get absolutely f**king arseholed.

    Liam: The last album I bought was Duffy's Rockferry. That song 'Mercy', was alright. I like the Weller one; 'Push It Along' is a great tune.

    I like The Last Shadow Puppets' album but it feels a bit grown-up.They're two young lads, but they look like little old men in Polo necks playing guitar, staring into each other's eyes like a couple of old farts. F*ck Off! I thought you were both in bands, anyway. Some of the tunes are all right.

      Guadalajara Tales

    From Noel Gallagher's official tour diary on oasisinet.com

    What happened there then? Seem to have missed a couple of days! That'll teach me to try keeping up with Ricky Hatton (safe journey home, lad - it's been a fuckin' pleasure!).

    Been in Guadalajara for the last 48 hours (or is it 24? Fuck knows, I can't remember).

    Met a woman at Mexico airport who asked me could I get her son any tickets for last night's gig.

    "Tickets? Not my bag, love. I can put him on the guest list though?

    "Tell him to bring i.d." I said. "Just in case there's any problemos".

    "I.d.?" says the woman. "He has no i.d.. He's only 6!!"

    SIX!!?

    City won away in Europe. Wonders never cease, etc. Fuck that "orange" kit though. Actually, its official title is "Blaze"! Either way, it's horrible. Get rid.

    Couldn't tell you what the show was like last night. The crowd were so loud I couldn't hear much of anything else. They seemed to enjoy it so it's all good, I expect.

    Incidentally, I may have tasted the greatest can of Guinness of all time last night. Quite unbelievable.

    Just about to fly to Monterey. Not the one where they had that festival in the 60s (that's in California), but the real one about 5 hours from here.

    Gotta plane to catch.

    Hasta luego.

    GD.

      Q and A with Alan McGee

    Our UK partners SCYHO did a Q and A with Alan McGee a Scottish music industry mogul and musician famed for founding the independent Creation Records label which ran from 1983 to 2000.

    Hows Things Alan?
    Good I'm a house dad and loving not dealing with idiots.

    Did you ever have dreams as a child of being in a band and becoming a rock star?
    I was in a band for real till 21, 'Biff Bang Pow' was a hobby band with Dick Green.

    You will mostly be remembered as the man who discovered Oasis, are you satisfied with that? or do you feel there's still more that you would like to accomplish?
    Bringing up my daughter really, and I like doing Death Disco and running clubs and DJ'ing but that's a hobby.

    Other than those on your label, Is there a band from your time at Creation that you'd wished you'd have signed?
    The Stone Roses.

    Apart from the albums Oasis released on Creation, what's your favourite album the label released?
    Probably Trashmonk 'Monalisa Overdrive' an absolute classic, I released late 1998.

    What do you think about Heavy Stereo's first album?
    Good better than people think it is.

    Do you wish Ride had stayed together longer?
    Yes I loved them.

    What is your favorite moment of the 90's?
    Getting off drugs.

    What are your memories of Primal Scream when they were signed to Creation?
    All good we drifted apart as we got older, I got sober but I like their new single.

    If they ever Make a film about your life who would play you?
    Sean from The Vortex an Indie band from Manchester, I love that bloke.

    Have you ever thought about writing a book about your experiences with the music industry?
    They want me to, so I probably will.

    If you could name a band Dream Team - who would be in it?
    Oasis 'Definitely Maybe' line up.

    When you first saw Oasis perform did you ever imagine that one day they would become a defining symbol of Rock 'N' Roll?
    No.

    What do you think is the best song Noel's ever written?....and did he ever give you a song where you thought "my god that's shit"?!
    Don't Look Back In Anger, I never really got 'Gas Panic', but i love him the way i love Neil Young and I don't love everything he's ever done.

    We know you consider Noel a genius, but what do you think about Liam's songwriting?
    Getting really good, I really liked the 'Meaning Of Soul' Liam is a one off they broke the mould, he's a dude.

    What do you think of the albums Oasis have released since leaving Creation?
    I really like the new one.

    Who were worse to manage Oasis or The Libertines?
    I never managed oasis I signed them to my record company, on The Libertines no comment.

    Will Oasis ever be inducted into the 'Rock n' Roll' Hall Of Fame?
    Should be, they deserve it.

    If you had to choose....Would you rather have signed Oasis and nobody else. Or have signed all the other acts but not Oasis?
    No i really only listen now to Oasis from the Creation days, none of the other music turns me on in 2008.

    Are you still in contact with any of the original members?
    Bonehead is a mate and Noel we have a text relationship with, when I see Liam it's cool, Guigsy I haven't seen for years as Tony McCarroll.

    Is there anything you'd change if you could have the Oasis period again?
    No glad I left when I did, I was burned out and had to go and do my own thing which i enjoyed.

    Special thanks to Alan for taking the time and effort to do this for the site, it's most appreciated.

    For more information on Alan visit his MySpace page here.

      Status Quo : Oasis are Dull and Boring

    London, November 29 (ANI): The frontman of Status Quo Francis Rossi has said that he thinks rock band Oasis is anything but rock ”n roll.


    The rock veteran, who with fellow band legend Rick Pafitt will soon release their new single Its Christmas Time, said that he found the Manchester band dull and boring, reports the Sun.

    He said: What always comes to mind is Oasis. They call themselves a rock band and they stand there looking at the floor. Bored s***less they look. Im not saying theyre a bad band, but that to me isnt rock n roll.

    The lead guitarist concentrated much of his disapproval on Liam Gallagher, who along with older brother Noel Gallagher is the co-founding member of Oasis and the band’’s leading songwriters.

    He added: That fella is still trying to pretend hes 20 and hes angry and really annoyed with his brother apparently. And he has got a really grumpy face and he has to stand there with the f*****g hump.

    Now, I dont believe that anymore. I may have believed it some years ago but not still.

    Oasis have often been dubbed as Quoasis in the past for ripping off Francis and Ricks three chord hit formula.

    source: ANI

    ================

    WHAT have OASIS done to rattle the golden oldies?

    A string of rock veterans have been queuing up to pick a fight with the GALLAGHER brothers recently.



    Call yourself a rock band? ... Liam Gallagher

    Last week I told you how SIMPLY RED frontman MICK HUCKNALL said he blamed NOEL and LIAM for giving t’North a bad name.

    Now it is STATUS QUO’s turn. They say although Oasis may sing a song called Rock ’N’ Roll Star they don’t know how to rock.

    FRANCIS ROSSI reckons the Gallaghers are not a patch on him and fellow Quo legend RICK PARFITT.

    Francis rants: “We’re from a generation of acts that are very physical, we put physicality into it.

    “But some of the younger bands don’t want to put that physical commitment in, either because it’s not cool at the moment or whatever.

    “What always comes to mind is Oasis. They call themselves a rock band and they stand there looking at the floor. Bored s***less they look.I’m not saying they’re a bad band, but that to me isn’t rock ’n’ roll.”

    Perhaps Francis should get his stonewashed denims along to an Oasis gig — I’ve never witnessed much boredom on show.

    Francis, who with Rick has a new single It’s Christmas Time out next Monday, singled out Liam for most of the criticism, accusing him of being a one-trick pony.

    He fumed: “That fella is still trying to pretend he’s 20 and he’s angry and really annoyed with his brother apparently.

    Grumpy

    “And he has got a really grumpy face and he has to stand there with the f*****g hump.

    “Now, I don’t believe that anymore. I may have believed it some years ago but not still.”

    Oasis have been nicknamed “Quoasis” in the past for ripping off Francis and Rick’s three chord hit formula.

    So Liam will already be well armed with a few words of his own about Francis and his dodgy ponytail when he finds out.

    In the same interview Francis claims MUSE and SNOW PATROL are his favourite bands.

    Accusing Oasis of being dull but then loving Snow Patrol? Hmmm.

      Pop Quiz: Noel Gallagher of Oasis

    You may not have noticed, but Oasis returned a few months ago with its first decent album in ages, "Dig Out Your Soul." After getting burned so many times, it's understandable that the mouthy British rock band's fans have thinned out since its mid-'90s heyday.

    But the Gallagher brothers can still deliver killer quotes and make a nice racket in big venues, which makes them as valuable as ever. We spoke with guitarist Noel Gallagher, 41, shortly after he was attacked onstage in Canada. He couldn't comment on the incident but was happy to talk about the reception that the new album is getting. Oasis plays Wednesday at Oakland's Oracle Arena.

    Q: Did you read the reviews of "Dig Out Your Soul" or is that something you generally avoid?

    A: Oh, no, I don't avoid them. But by the same rule, I don't go out of my way to read them all. I've seen a few.

    Q: They were cautiously optimistic.

    A: They're just the same Oasis reviews to me: "Some songs are good, the s- ones are s-, why are they still f- making music?"

    Q: It probably goes back to your third album, "Be Here Now." Critics gave it such great reviews before realizing that maybe the music wasn't actually all that great.

    A: They've never forgiven us for that. I'm quite proud of that. Yeah, so, I've read a few. They still do that thing where they slag you off for your lyrics, yet they print the wrong lyrics. It's like, hang on a minute, you're printing your f- lyrics, you're not printing mine. That's not what it says on the f- song, you doofus.

    Q: Does it really make a difference?

    A: No, it doesn't. I'm not sure what the overall goal is of a review. What is its point? Is it to guide people through the quagmire for them to say you should really be listening to this kind of music? If one has four stars and one has got three, does that mean if you're cursed with a choice in a record store you should buy the one with four and not the one with three? Is that what it is?

    Q: Have you ever bought a record based on a review?

    A: I've bought one or two, and I'm at pain to say this, but they were all f- great.

    Q: There you go.

    A: No, the reviews weren't great, but the albums were great. I read a review, and if it mentions anything about the Beatles or the Stones or the Stooges or the Kinks, I'm like, "Well, I'm f- buying that." The albums I bought were American albums, funny enough.

    Q: How about your live shows? People moan that you just stand there. Have you ever suggested to your brother Liam that he make a little bit more effort onstage, maybe watch a few old Rolling Stones videos?

    A: God, have you seen that film "Shine a Light"? Well, Mick Jagger takes it to the next level, man. It's f- ludicrous. But, no, Liam's turned the standing-still thing into a bit of an art form. We can't all be jumping around like f- Jumping Jack Flash, can we? Would it work if Liam was like Mick Jagger? No, it f- wouldn't. {sbox}

      Mexico Football, Ricky Hatton and Hangovers

    From Noel Gallagher's official tour diary on oasisinet.com

    Well, Ricky turned up. Sven didn't. Mexico have lost a couple of games and apparently he's not flavour of the month. He thought it would be best if he didn't play out. He sends his regards though. Shame. I loved that man.

    Gig wasn't all that, to be honest. We haven't played for 2 weeks and it felt like it.

    Nursing a sore head today. Sat up most of the night drinking with Ricky. Feeling it now though. Good job we've got a day off. Not in any fit shape to do anything other than stay in bed and watch TV, which is exactly what I'm doing.

    Flying to Guadalajara tonight. Gonna get me some room service now, so...hasta luego.

    GD.

      'Standing on the Edge of the Noise' Rehearsal Film

    In August Oasis performed in their rehearsal studio prior to the start of their 2008/09 World tour.

    Through Oasisinet they invited a few fans to join them for the final night of their rehearsals before they hit the road. Over 10,000 fans applied to go in under 24 hours for the 100 places on offer. The resulting film - 'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise' - is a unique, intimate look at the band performing in their own space, instead of the huge stadium stages on which they are more often seen. The programme includes a mix of classics and new tracks from the current album.

    'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise' will air on Channel 4 this Saturday at 12:20am (UK ONLY).

    The gig will also air internationally in the forthcoming months so be sure to check your local listings.

      Mexico, Steve Jones and 'Where's Ricky?'

    From Noel Gallagher's official tour dairy on Oasisinet.com

    Hola.

    We've finally made it to Mexico. That day of press in LA was great. All of us went into Indie 103 see that Sex Pistol Steve Jones. He's fuckin' great, Jonesy. We had a top laugh. The show descended into farce when he ran an impromptu competition to win tickets to come see Oasis next week. Fuckin' funny.

      New Oasis Photobook launched in London

    Paul Slattery tells NME.COM about their early days on the road.

    Oasis photographer Paul Slattery launched a book of rare photographs trailing the band in their early years prior to and following the launch of first LP 'Definitely Maybe' in London last night (November 26).

    The snapper marked the occasion by laying on a small exhibition of his work from 'Oasis: A Year On The Road' at the Gibson Guitar Studio while the band's debut album was played on repeat.

    From March 1994, Slattery had total access to the band as they criss-crossed the globe during their speedy ascent, which saw them going from playing small club gigs to sold-out arenas.

    "The first gig I saw them play was in the 100 Club (in London) but within six months they were playing big theatres and I just thought, 'Shit, they're going to go all the way'," he explained.

    "But I didn't realise they were going to do it so quickly though. Within a year they were playing Sheffield Arena to 10,000 people."

    Slattery first hooked up with the band at Eden Studios in west London through mutual friend and band engineer Mark Coyle.

    "I took a case of beer down there and I had unfettered access to the band," he said. "It was unbelievable because when you see a great band like that you just become a teenager again. I lost 30 years in one year."

    The photographer, who shot the band in black and white, went on the road with them to Japan and the US, where he snapped a comical shot of Bonehead and tennis legend John McEnroe.

    Slattery recalled: "There is a great picture of McEnroe in the book with Bonehead, who's pulling a funny face. He was always great to work with because he was like the clown prince of Oasis.

    "When things were shit Bonehead would be the one that would go, 'Come on you fuckers, we're a rock and roll band we're going to have fun'. He kept people's spirits high."

    But the snapper's favourite shot in the book and moment with the band depicted Liam Gallagher leaning into the crowd at a gig in Nagoya in September 1994.

    He recalled: "Every single one of those pics has a story but I must admit that's the best. It was an amazing night and there was something special happening with the crowd.

    "It was the first time I've ever seen them do an encore, and everybody at the end of that gig was just in tears."

    As Oasis got bigger and access became more difficult Slattery stopped shooting the band, and has never worked with them since to this day.

    "By that time things were getting difficult and it was harder to deal directly with Noel (Gallagher) because very few people had mobile phones in them days so I couldn't just call him up," he explained.

    "I've not done anything with them since because I've always had that philosophy that I like to see bands when they are small and hungry - that's the excitement, and that's what rock and roll is all about."

      Noel Gallagher's Rolling Stone Interview

    Noel Gallagher: " You have to see us in a league with the Rolling Stones "

    On the eve of Oasis' tour with Ryan Adams, the songwriter talks drugs, violence and the secret to his success

    Oasis are celebrating the holidays by hitting the road for a North American tour, which kicks off December 3rd in Oakland, California. There's much to be festive about: the band put out their finest album in a decade in Dig Out Your Soul and guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher has fully recovered from being attacked on stage in Toronto in September.

    You've said yourself that you don't really need hits in America. Why do you still tour here?
    I like the vastness of this country. In between each city when you're on that tour bus some of the stuff you see is stunning. It just took me awhile to understand the corporate nature of the music business over here. I never really understood why I would have to get up at nine o'clock in the morning, go down and see the guy who owned the local record shop and meet his fucking wife and fat kids.

    What do you think the band has offer to an American teenager who is seeing you for the first time?
    Nothing. Don't come and see us if you're expecting anything. I can't offer anybody anything apart from the music that's coming out of the speakers. And if they listen to that and they find some meaning in the songs, good for them.

    OK, so you're not a spokesperson. What does the band have to offer?
    Power. Musical power. Volume. Impeccable shoes. I speak for myself, by the way.

    You and your touring partner Ryan Adams are both pretty opinionated guys with healthy egos. Do you get along?
    Well, I'm pretty and he's opinionated. I got a lot of respect for the man. He's a great guitar player. He's a little eccentric. He wears stripy socks and platform shoes, but not everybody's perfect. I wouldn't be on tour with him if I didn't like him.

    What did you find out about that guy who attacked you in Toronto?
    Nobody knows why he did what he did. There's a legal case going on so they tell me I'm not supposed to talk about it. I'm sure the footage on YouTube says enough.

    Has that kind of thing happened to you before?
    No. I've never been violently attacked. Maybe by my girlfriend a couple of times when I stayed out later than I should've.

    How did it affect you, other than...
    Other than the fact that I got three broken ribs and I had five weeks off? Do you mean I wake up sweating in the middle of the night and think the guy stood over me? That kind of shit? Oh, no, not in the fucking slightest. It's a meaningless act. Something always happens to me on Oasis tours. I was in a car crash. If it's not that, it's getting fucking busted. If it's not that, it's coming down with some ancient fucking disease that's not been got by anybody for the last 600 years.


    Is there something in particular that you'd like to achieve with this tour?
    Five million dollars. Besides that, not really.

    Have you pulled out any songs that you haven't played in awhile?
    Yeah. "Slide Away," "The Masterplan," "Supersonic." We're not going to turn any new people on to Oasis. Oasis is a band that you either get it or you don't. Everybody knows who we are. You have to see us in league with the Rolling Stones now. Everybody's heard of the Stones, everybody knows what they sound like, everybody knows what they do. You either go because you like it or you don't. It's easy.

    There was a time when the band didn't seem to be enjoying themselves in concert that much.
    Well, I'm not sure about that. There was a few years where I really should've traveled the world with my girlfriend and shit like that but we decided to carry on putting out records. But I love being on stage. It's the one place where there's no bullshit. Don't get me wrong: It looks like I'm having a bad time. But that's because I'm not a fucking asshole that feels like I have to talk to the crowd every two minutes or put on a big smile or run up and down the stage like an idiot. I like to play that guitar. I have to stare at it while I?m playing it because I'm not very good at playing it.

    What gets you off at a show?
    If I'm singing well and I'm playing well, then that's enough for me. Obviously there are nights where you go off stage and think, "Well, that was a bit fucking shit" because there were technical problems. But I can assure you this: I am fucking brilliant every night I go out there. I could give a fuck about anybody else in the band. They look after themselves. But I am always cooking on a solid eight-and-a-half out of 10.

    What do you do to do that?
    I'm afraid I was born with it. It's not something you go out to Wal-Mart and buy. "Can I buy some brilliance please?" They don't sell that shit over the counter. You either got it or you don't.

    How do you get back the high that drugs gave you?
    Drugs brainwash you into thinking you can't survive without them. I was never in a mess mentally or physically. I have the constitution of a large ox. If anything, it was the people that I had surrounding me that were very uncool. I never needed to be on drugs. I just wanted to be on drugs because it was fucking brilliant. But then there came a point where I didn't want this anymore. So I wanted to be straight. And then there comes a point where you maybe want to be somewhere in between, which is where we're at now I think.

    That you're able to take them occasionally and it's fine?
    Well, I wouldn't say I take them at any point. But when I gave them up I gave up drinking and everything. But now I drink like a fucking fish and I smoke like a chimney. I've always been a magnificent drunk. I've been told by hundreds of people I'm actually a better person when I'm drunk.

      Dizzee Rascal wants to work with Oasis

    Rapper wants Noel Gallagher for new project

    Dizzee Rascal has said he wants to work with Noel Gallagher – despite the Oasis guitarist's opposition to Jay-Z playing Glastonbury this year

    Speaking to BBC Radio 1, the British rapper said he did not believe Gallagher was against hip-hop.

    "I don't think he hates hip-hop. Maybe he just felt a way about Jay-Z being at Glastonbury or hip-hop being at Glastonbury. He's into music," said Dizzee Rascal. "There must be some hip-hop over the years that he must've liked, or Liam. They're party animals, so somewhere they must've enjoyed some hip-hop track."

    Dizzee, who collaborated with Arctic Monkeys on the track 'Temptation Greets You Like A Naughty Friend' in 2007, added that he was now keen to combine his and the main Oasis songwriter's talents.

    "Yeah [I'd still like to work with Noel]. That's another thing to me like working with the Arctic Monkeys," he said. "Obviously they're [Oasis] older and they set their bar from earlier."

      Oasis' Fallen Empire

    Earlier this month, Noel Gallagher opined that he abhors comparisons to a certain outfit from Oxford. "The biggest criticism that the music press has against us is that we're not Radiohead," the Oasis guitarist told Plavi Radio in Zagreb, Croatia. "Correct me if I'm wrong, they've been making the same record since Kid A, have they not?"

    Aside from his rather surly disposition, Noel's chief character flaw has always been a dearth of self-awareness. It's essentially why Oasis' aesthetic has evolved very little since those budding early days of bar chords, root notes on bass, and 4/4 drumbeats. It's why, somewhere right now, Noel is talking glowingly about the Beatles. And it's why the group hitched its wagon to Britpop — a cultural movement that centered on the dizzying rebranding of England — despite the noted lack of an Anglocentric tinge to Oasis' canon. While Britpop contemporaries were achingly provincial (hear the social and generational malaise captured on Blur's Parklife, or the claustrophobic, smutty elements of urban life portrayed in Suede's self-titled debut), Oasis was relatively unconscious during an extraordinary stirring of national consciousness.

    Sure, the band had the necessary gestures down pat: singer Liam Gallagher famously spouting, "It's the greatest flag in the world — we're here to do something about it!" during his first visit to the Creation Records offices; Noel Gallagher playing a guitar emblazoned with the Union Jack at a 1996 show at Manchester's Maine Road stadium. However, penetrate that slick production work, pare away those fat melodies and overlapping guitars, and, well, you get some truth: The Biggest Band Since the Beatles was all style and — short of those legendary mountains of cocaine — no substance.

    Post-Britpop, the vacuousness only deepened. Releases like 2000's Standing on the Shoulder of Giants and 2002's Heathen Chemistry further proved that the depth of Oasis' genre-mining related to its lack of focus. Nicking from countless English predecessors (T-Rex, the Kinks, the Stone Roses, etc.) wasn't enough of a sin; now Oasis was keen on making it all sound lumbering and banal.

    Which brings us to Dig Out Your Soul, the group's eighth studio album and possibly the final nail in Oasis' pine box. Aside from "The Shock of the Lightning," where Liam cements his status as the most skillful vocalist ever at pronouncing long vowel sounds ("Love is a time macheeeeen/Up on the silver screeeeen"), and the poignant "I'm Outta Time" (Britpop's end theme if there ever was one), Dig Out Your Soul lacks any of the melodic verve and scuffed menace typical of the band's early efforts.

    "Waiting for the Rapture" and "(Get Off Your) High Horse Lady" plod along underneath Noel's stock chord progressions and flat vocals. "Bag It Up" is a blues-bar stomp that's largely forgettable; it's then poorly rehashed later as "The Nature of Reality." And of course, no Oasis record would be complete without the Gallaghers' aimless nostalgia for You Know Who. Some instances are subtle: The opening drums to "Falling Down" are a nod to "Tomorrow Never Knows," while the coda to "The Turning" cribs from "Dear Prudence." Others border on idolatry, like the insertion of a John Lennon soundbite into "I'm Outta Time."

    That spacious guitar-and-drum sound, those big rhymes and anthemic choruses — they're here once more, Oasis still reaching for a pop grandiosity the group will never quite grasp. When Britpop was at its heady peak, the NME's Steven Wells made waves by panning the cultural movement, saying it was posturing typical of a faltering empire folks no longer gave a shit about. Fitting, really, because the same could be written of Oasis and Dig Out Your Soul.

      Noel in LA: ' It's Good To Be Back '

    From Noel Gallagher's official tour diary on oasisinet.com

    Now then, it's been a couple of weeks. How's things?

    Been in that Las Vegas for the last couple of days. Me and wots'iz'name were carrying Ricky Hatton's belts out for his world title fight against Paulie something-or-other. A great, great night. What a buzz! The atmospherics at Ricky's fights are unbelievable.

    Met David Beckham for the very first time and I can tell you he smells magnificent!!

    Fuck me, we had a proper drink up afterwards. Felt like a lump of shit yesterday though.

    On the way to LA today. Got to do a couple of days of press then fly down to Mexico. Few gigs there. Back to the States for 3 weeks touring.

    It's good to be back.

    In a bit.

      Liam and Noel Gallagher lead Ricky Hatton to victory


    Noel and Liam Gallagher of Oasis bring out boxer Ricky Hatton of England's belts before taking on Paulie Malignaggi during their light-welterweight fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada in the early hours of this morning.

    More pictures from the fight can be found here.

    Ricky Hatton continued his unbeaten run at light-welterweight by outclassing Paulie Malignaggi with an 11th-round stoppage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

    Hatton, breaking from his trademark brawling style in his first fight under new trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr, looked a different class against the slick but light-punching Malignaggi.

    The victory took Hatton's professional record to 45-1 (32 KOs) in the same ring he had suffered his only defeat almost a year earlier, a 10th round stoppage by Floyd Mayweather Jr at welterweight.

    And it also sets up a possible superfight with the winner of the massive December 6 showdown between Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao.

    Malignaggi's trainer Buddy McGirt had climbed onto the ring apron and referee Bayless called a halt to proceedings, much to the American's annoyance as the Hatton fans chanted "easy, easy" in celebration of their man.

      Oasis Bad Boy a Mellow Soul


    He's had both of the Gallagher brothers in his taxi, the London cab driver tells me. The nice one and the naughty one.

    He dropped off the nice one at his (nice one's) house at the height of the band's fame. Crowds were waiting outside.

    "Then another time I picked up the naughty one, when he was still with his missus, Patsy Kensit," the cabbie says. "She was pregnant. I didn't really want him in my cab in case he started something, but he was with her, so it was all right."

    Ten minutes later I find myself alone in a room with the naughty one, though this time Liam Gallagher, 36, is being exceptionally nice.


    We're at the Roundhouse, the north London venue where Oasis is to take the stage as the closing act of the week-long BBC Electric Proms series. The gig sold out in 42 seconds.

    Liam, wearing a black leather jacket and scarf, is in a chilled out mood.

    He will be doing a special show with a 50-piece choir, but it's all in a day's work for the younger Gallagher. He would be at home, which is just around the corner, but his missus, All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, and her mates are "getting dolled up".

    In 15 years in Oasis, Liam has earned a reputation as an enfant terrible, with antics including allegedly head-butting an Australian fan and being banned from airline Cathay Pacific.

    Now, though, he's settled down with Nicole -- whom he married this year after eight years together -- and spends time with his three children. He gets up at 6am, goes for a run, likes to eat out early and is likely to be in bed by 10 or 11. He couldn't be happier.

    He admits he's mellowed.

    "Not too much, though," he says quickly.

    "You have to be when you get older and you have kids; it's your duty, innit? You can't go out every night drinking. I can't handle it any more -- the hangovers."

    Noel and Liam Gallagher were the unlikely princes of British pop culture. Growing up in a rough area of Manchester with a devoted mother and unkind father, they had a fearless ambition.

    They sang about living forever, not dying young and their music -- along with that of arch rivals, educated southerners Blur -- is associated with Britain's optimistic renaissance. They were the anti-grunge.

    Staying true to rock 'n' roll, Oasis's latest album, Dig Out Your Soul, its seventh British No.1 recorded in the famous Abbey Rodd studios, recreates the magic.

    In the foyer at the Roundhouse, where fans mill outside, photographs of Oasis's greatest moments line the walls, including two giant headshots, where the Gallagher brothers appear like Roman caesars, untouchable, godly.

    A fan sums it up for me: "Their songs were about being from a working class background and being downtrodden and rising above that. And when you're a teenager you're always feeling downtrodden."

    To Liam, music is as important as ever: "Yeah man, if not more important. This is my life. This is what I do. This is it. This is where I get my kicks from. This is what makes me feel untouchable."

    On stage, Oasis is whipping up an electric mayhem as the crowd almost drowns out the 50-piece choir.

    In the dress circle, the band's partners and celebrity friends move enthusiastically.

    Suddenly, a spotlight singles out a certain celebrity and the band stops.

    The crowd erupts into a frenzied football chant: "Who are ya? Who are ya?"

    It's actor Daniel Craig, or as Noel points out: "Bond, James Bond."

    Dig Out Your Soul contains three Liam-penned numbers, including the current single, I'm Outta Time.

    A WISTFUL, romantic tune, it could have been written by the ghost of John Lennon and at the end of the song Lennon's voice can be heard in a quote recorded just before his death.

    "I've always thought it would be nice to have someone speak on it and obviously John Lennon's the man. So we went through these tapes and that was the first one that pops out. Sometimes you get lucky. That was the magic in that. It just fitted straight away," Liam says.

    Liam's love of Lennon is no secret. He even named his son after him.

    "He's just the best. He's a f------ dude, isn't he? He's got a great voice. A funny personality. He didn't give a s---. He didn't take no s---. I'm not obsessed with him. I like his music and I like his voice."

    At Abbey Road studios, Liam says he definitely felt the vibe.

    "It's the best studio in the world. That's where we should make our music all the time. That's why our record sounds good. Obviously our producer's good and that, but you can hear Abbey Road in it. If you don't make a decent record at Abbey Road, you shouldn't be making music."

    Liam doesn't think much of the current crop of enfant terribles dominating the tabloids. Instead of mixing a little drugs with their sex and rock 'n' roll, they have let drugs take over their lives.

    "Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse? They're f------ scumbags, aren't they? They need to have a wash. Apparently they're really talented. They're talented at being scruffy I know that. I don't care for them. They're grubby little bastards."

    Liam's relationship with Noel has weathered many storms. More like colleagues than family, the brothers don't hang out socially. Liam prefers to be in bed by 10pm, while Noel's out with his celebrity mates.

    "We were never that touchy-feely, cuddly brothers kind of thing anyway, so it's still the same sort of. We don't really speak that much," Liam says.

    "We only speak when things need to be said. The thing is about our relationship, there's no bulls--- involved."

    R ECENTLY in Toronto, Noel was attacked on stage by a fan. Liam was ready to get into the ring to protect his brother.

    "Without a doubt. I think he'd do the same thing. I'd do it for any of them. Without a doubt. You have to look after your brothers, haven't you?" he says.

    Liam now has two sons, close in age. What legacy would he like to pass on to his children?

    "Just to be themselves, man. Nobody's perfect. You wouldn't want to be. Be yourself. It don't matter what people think of you. That's the only thing."

    Those words sound familiar. The words are echoed in the first line of Supersonic, Oasis's first single released in 1994: "I need to be myself, I can't be no one else."

    "It's not about everyone liking you. As long as you like yourself, then you'll be all right," Liam says.

      Oasis Exhibition at Snap Galleries London



    Snap Galleries is currently showing an exclusive exhibition of Oasis photographs by Michael Spencer Jones . Michael's images appear on the covers of Oasis’ first three studio albums: Definitely Maybe, What’s the Story Morning Glory? and Be Here Now and eleven of their early singles, from Supersonic through to All Around the World.

    For the first time, Michael is bringing together and exhibiting photographs from every one of his Oasis albums and singles sleeve sessions, a new limited edition book, a lavish portfolio box set of 15 individual window mounted photographs, a new collage featuring over 100 different Oasis photographs, and if all that wasn’t enough, some other surprises as well.

    The portfolio box is a really beautiful piece of work - a 21st century update on David Bailey’s 1965 Box of Pin-ups project, with a price as keen as mustard. It won’t stick at the launch price forever, but we have set it very much with the credit crunch in mind. Limited editions are available to purchase, with prices from £95 to £13,950.

    The exhibition is currently running at our showroom in Covent Garden in London up until Christmas and will run in our Birmingham gallery at Fort Dunlop from Saturday 6 December 2008 until Saturday 28 February, 2009.

      Mojo Goes Behind the Scenes With Oasis


    OASIS: “Bring it on, you little dicks! On the road and behind the scenes with the biggest band in the land, MOJO’s Pat Gilbert enters the inner sanctum of Oasis’s sold-out UK tour to discover the secret story at the heart of Dig Out Your Soul. “We’ve been to the dark side,” reveals a typically candid Noel Gallagher.

    In the latest issue of MOJO magazine (on sale Tuesday) Oasis’s Gallagher brothers unveil the latest and possibly the strangest of their infamous spats.

    Involving Liam’s sudden flit, in the middle of sessions for Dig Out Your Soul, to get married without warning, it would prove to have massive repercussions on the record they were making.

    If nothing else, the contretemps illustrates that almost 15 years since Oasis began their triumphant march into British music history their fire burns as fiercely as ever. Band members have come and gone, decade-defining songs have been locked into the public consciousness, but that fractious relationship between Noel and Liam Gallagher remains the propellant force behind a seventh Number 1 album, a sold-out UK arena tour and the prospect of three sold-out nights at Wembley Stadium next summer.

    MOJO magazine’s tour piece – for which writer Pat Gilbert was allowed unprecedented backstage access – is haunted by the after-effects of the September 7 attack on Noel Gallagher at Toronto’s V Festival which left the guitarist with three broken ribs and a reliance on powerful painkillers ("It's like walking on sand," he admits). But, as MOJO can exclusively reveal, the boat had already been rocked by a decision made earlier in the year.

    At mixing sessions for Dig Out Your Soul in Los Angeles in February singer Liam Gallagher had yet to record a single vocal, and the atmosphere was edgy. Then, as Valentines Day loomed, the Oasis frontman split for London and a surprise wedding, splicing with partner Nicole Appleton after eight years and two children together. Yet he invited none of the band, and informed none of them of his plans.

    “I was f**king furious about it,” Noel tells MOJO. “I don’t give a shit about the fact he didn’t invite me to the wedding; but when it affects our work it infuriates me.”

    The impact was critical as two tracks slated for inclusion on the record – one described by Noel as “an epic Champagne-Supernova song with backwards Are You Experienced-type rhythms” – were left incomplete. Consequently, Dig Out Your Soul hit the shelves with reduced psychedelic potency, and two tracks – Get Off Your High Horse Lady and Ain’t Got Nothin’ – originally intended as B-sides.

    As usual, Liam remains defiant. “It was private,” he tells MOJO. “Our Kid should get over it. I wouldn’t be upset, I wouldn’t want to go to his wedding anyway.”

    With some observers concerned that Oasis had swopped inspirational mayhem for pipes and slippers, the palaver is strangely reassuring, and the revelation is unlikely to harm their revitalised career. Plus ça fookin’ change, say the experts, plus c’est la fookin’ même chose.

    LIVE & DANGEROUS! To read our mammoth 13-page world exclusive Oasis tour report, be sure to pick up a copy of MOJO – on sale from Tuesday, November 25!

      Liam Gallagher Shows His Soft Side

    Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher gave money to a homeless man after eating out in London last night (November 19th).

    The singer was surrounded by photographers as he handed over a collection of notes.

    Gallagher had been to the capital's popular Nobu Berkley restaurant before being stopped by the man.

    As previously reported on Gigwise, Oasis will embark on their biggest ever UK stadium tour next year in support of latest album 'Dig Out Your Soul'.

    Coventry trio The Enemy and Kasabian will act as support on the tour, which includes three night residencies in London and Manchester.

      Simply Red Star Has Some Words For The Gallaghers

    Mick Hucknall has risked reopening a war of words with Oasis after claiming the Gallagher brothers have made northerners look like a “cliché”

    In an interview for the new edition of Q, out on November 25, the Simply Red star accused Noel Gallagher of making the north “sound stupid”.

    His comments come after the dust had settled on a ten-year-old dispute between the Hucknall and Oasis which saw the singer brand Noel “a dickhead” in an interview and reportedly led to a scuffle with Liam.

    But in the interview for Q’s regular “A Round With ….” Feature, Hucknall revisits their feud. Asked if he had seen the footage of Noel being attacked on stage in Toronto, Hucknall said: “No. Was that for making the North sound stupid?”

    Asked to explain, he added: “I think it’s fair comment. I love that Harry Enfield sketch when [Kathy Burke as Perry] comes back from a weekend in Manchester walking like this [affects cocky Liam Gallagher gait] and goes, ‘F***kin’ sound. Bangin’!’. They’ve made a cliché out of presenting Northerners, especially Mancunians, like that.”

      The Soul of Noel

    It may have been a long time coming, but Noel Gallagher is a new man these days. At 41, the Oasis leader is older, wiser, and altogether calmer – a far cry from the hard-partying hedonist who frequently got into fistfights with his vocalist kid brother, Liam, both onstage and off. Now a mature father of two, the guitarist has not only come a long way from the band’s Britpop-defining 1994 debut, Definitely Maybe, but is now prone to penning deep, reflective processionals like those featured on Dig Out Your Soul, the latest set from Oasis, which instantly topped charts around the world upon its recent release.

    After a few surreal wake-up calls of late – including the horrific experience at Toronto’s recent V-Fest where a crazed audience member angrily attacked him onstage for no apparent reason – Gallagher has revamped his life philosophy. “I don’t have an ‘all are welcome’ kind of policy,” he notes soberly. “My own thing now is that I know what’s best for me. Other people can tell me what’s best for them, but to me it’s all live and let live. But I don’t let people into my life, and I don’t try to walk into their lives. As long as I know who I am and stay true to my self, then everything’s cool with me.”

    Gallagher may have changed, but get him talking, and that old sardonic snarkiness starts to resurface. Oasis diehards wouldn’t have it any other way.

    The Wave: On the new album’s bonus-disc track, “Lord, Don’t Slow Me Down,” you sing “I’ve got a habit that the cat won’t lick.” What bad habits do you still have?

    Noel Gallagher: Smoking and drinking, I still do that. But apart from that, not many.

    TW: You look remarkably slim and healthy for your age. Did you change your diet, start working out?

    NG: About three years ago, I suffered real bad back problems. I went to see a guy in London, and he sent me to a sports therapist, who said, “If you don’t start doing some exercise, in about five years you’re gonna be f***ed.” I’ve always shied away from exercise, pretty much because of the clothes, the gear you have to wear when you do it. But I got so addicted to it, I kept it going. I went and actually did boxing – I put the gloves on. So we did a bit of that, and just getting on these fairly complicated machines that strengthened my back. But I got so into it, I was doing it three days a week. I think the key is, if you exercise, you can eat whatever you want, so I haven’t changed my diet in any way.

    TW: When you were boxing, did you go a round or two with anyone?

    NG: No, it wasn’t real boxing. It was just gentle sparring. And I’ve got to say, I wasn’t very good at it. The thought of it is better than the actual doing it. I’d get my face smashed in if I was in the ring – I don’t have the killer instincts.

    TW: Are you still recovering from the incident in Toronto where you were tackled on stage?

    NG: No, no, no, it’s all fixed, it’s all gone – and it’s been two months now, really. He broke three ribs and bruised another five. Why? I dunno. He’s been up in front of a judge in Canada and the case was adjourned, so nobody’s heard his explanation yet. But he hasn’t got an explanation – he’s just an idiot. There is no logical explanation for why people do things like that.

    TW: You’ve often said that you’ve learned a whole new way of walking through urban environments, where you stare straight down at the sidewalk and never make eye contact with potential nutcakes like that.

    NG: I live right in the middle of the West End in London. It’s surprising how much privacy you get when you’re just surrounded by millions of people. I don’t get noticed at all. So I guess being in the eye of the hurricane, that’s where the calm is. If I was to be the famous rock star down at the end of a leafy street in the suburbs, you’d get more hassles because everybody would know where you lived. But I live right off a main high street, and nobody bats an eyelid at me.

    TW: I thought you’d moved to rural Buckinghamshire.

    NG: I’ve got a place there, too, but I moved because I kinda missed the heartbeat of the city. There are only so many months of the year you can spend in solitude. I like to hear police sirens; I like to hear the choppers overhead. I like to hear traffic, because it gives me a sense that I’m part of something. But I’m lucky enough to have two places, so when I get pissed off at the city, I can go live in the country for a while. But I’m always drawn back to the city, because that’s where it’s at. I like to be surrounded by people.

    TW: Dig Out Your Soul touches on death, religion, and the question of the hereafter. Those are some heavy issues.

    NG: A lot of people have said that. I’m not a morose person that would think about mortality a great deal. But for my own part, I find writing about God and religion interesting.... I’m not really a believer in any sense, but I’m curious about the imagery of it all. And I’m fascinated by people who are so into religion in a big way. You live in America and I live in England, but you know the religion I’m talking about.

    TW: Well, it’s only the fundamentalists who demand that you believe just as they do.

    NG: You just hit the nail on the head. You can worship whatever you want, but you can’t then say that I’m not allowed to worship nothing. It’s like, “You just be cool and be happy with who you are, and I’ll be cool and be happy who I am, and the world will be a better place.” That’s my ideal for living. If you believe it and it makes your day-to-day existence better, if you can insert that kind of thing into your life and it works for you, then brilliant. Personally, I don’t need to believe that I will find redemption or that there will be a God who will judge me at the end of all of that. I believe that you get one shot at this, and it’s on Earth, so I’m not waiting for a second chance when I walk into the light. When they finally put me in the ground, that’s it. It’s over for me, done. I will rest in peace.

    TW: So when you say “Dig out your soul,” do you believe you actually have one to dig out?

    NG: Liam’s always bangin’ on about soul and blah, blah, blah, but I’m confused as to what it means. To me, it’s music. I listen to Motown and think, “Well, that’s got soul,” but I don’t know what that fu**ing means. The line comes from one of Gem’s [Archer, band guitarist] songs, and it’s actually when you’re at a party and someone’s putting on a record, it’s like, “Can you put a soul record on? Dig out your soul!” Like in a DJ type of sense.

    TW: The new album has that hip-shaking, vintage-soul groove all the way through.

    NG: That wasn’t the plan going into the studio. We’ve got more British rock ’n’ roll songs in the bag that we intended to record, but our producer, Dave Sardy, heard two or three songs that had that groove and said, “I need some more songs like this – do you have any?” And I said, “Well, not really, but I’ll write some!” And it was the first time we ever let him direct the whole piece. I wrote the bulk of my songs in the studio, and we’ve hit on the novel idea that every other band’s been doing for the last 15 years: “Hey, let’s let the producer produce it!”

    TW: Returning to what we were initially discussing, it’s not so bad to actually slow down a little, right? You’ve got kids now – you need to stick around.

    NG: Oh, yeah, totally. It’s not cool to be into drugs when you’ve got children, no matter which way you look at it. You have a responsibility to see them grow up, and then you have a responsibility for them to see you as a role model, I guess, in that this is how one lives one’s life. I mean, I don’t want my kids to grow up and think I was never there, physically or mentally. I want them to see me as… as just plain old dad.

      Noel Gallagher Thwarts Dog Napping

    We never had Noel Gallagher down as a Bond figure, but he scared the Living Daylights out of a gang of wannabe dognappers.

    The Oasis star stepped in when he saw the lads, who wore hoodies, trying to steal a black labrador belonging to a former Bond Girl.

    Noel gave them a right ear-bashing and threatened to take them all on – leaving them shaken and stirred. Give the man a Dog Licence to Kill!

    Noel, 41, was near his £2.5million mansion in central London when he saw the youths trying to nab a dog tied up outside a supermarket.

    Having seen the pedigree pooch going walkies with owner Caroline Munro, 58 – buxom star of The Spy Who Loved Me – he barked at the thieves. The gang fled instantly, with their tails between their legs.

    A neighbour tells us: “Noel was so brave – the blokes could have been carrying knives but he just didn’t care.

    “He’s a tough bloke and he doesn’t like people taking what isn’t theirs.

    “So he tackled them and they quickly did one.”

    The lucky lab was then reunited with Caroline – who played ill-fated helicopter pilot Naomi in the 1977 Bond movie. She showered Noel with thanks after the incident, earlier this month.

    We hear: “The dog is the cutest little thing and wears a red neckerchief.

    “Caroline takes him everywhere – even to the pub.

    “So she was ever so grateful for what Noel did. She’d have been devastated to lose him.”

    It is not the first time that Bond-fan Noel has tried to muscle in on the fictional spy’s patch.

    At the Electric Proms in London’s Camden, Noel told Daniel Craig: “Get me the next James Bond theme tune, instead of dopey Americans.”

    He could do a new version of Wonderwall… Thunderwall, anyone?

      Noel Gallagher Interview with Relix

    Noel Gallagher: 'I'm Not Ashamed of Anything I've Done'

    The rampant ego, unapologetic hedonism and regular punch-ups—these are the reasons everybody loves Oasis. But with the group’s seventh studio album, Dig Out Your Soul, trading the usual assortment of drab pub-rock anthems for lush grooves and far-out melodies, people are once again paying attention to the brothers Gallagher for their music.

    Even a few days after getting attacked by a crazed stage-invader in Canada, the Britpop group’s guitarist and chief songwriter Noel Gallagher, 41, remains typically defiant: “My glass is half full at all times!


    You called the album Dig Out Your Soul but it’s not this huge confessional epic, is it?

    No. That title is there out of necessity because I couldn’t think of a decent one. Ironically enough, as soon as the albums were printed I came up with six in half an hour. I don’t know what it means but the album is not hugely confessional, no. I have no confessions left at my age.

    Was there a time when you did?

    No, because to confess anything it means you’re ashamed of it. I’m not ashamed of anything I’ve done or said or wore. Confessions would lead one to believe that one believes in some sort of redemption from some sort of god or another and I don’t live in that world. I shouldn’t apologize for anything I’ve done.

    Do you see music as an emotional outlet, say, if you have a particularly bad day?

    I have to say, and this goes right back to my youth, I don’t have bad days. Never. I mean, I’m going through a pretty shit bit at the moment because I have a few broken ribs. Other than that, I don’t have bad days. I don’t say that to be a smart-ass or trick you in any way. It’s like, what could possibly ruin a day?

    You obviously have a different disposition than the general songwriting population.

    Well, yeah. Thank god, eh?

    Do you think music should be about escapism?

    To me, that’s what it’s about. My favorite bands were always at their best when they were singing songs about people that didn’t exist and situations they never got into. As soon as they started singing about how shit it was being a heroin addict I was like, “I’ve had it with this fucking whining bit.” You know what I mean? Let’s move on. I ain’t into all that. So your mother left you when you were a child? Join the fucking club.

    What were the bands that made you want to pick up a guitar?

    It started with The Beatles and then went into Sex Pistols and then The Smiths and The Jam. I fucking loved The Smiths. But I’m not as literal as Morrissey and didn’t envision ever becoming half the guitarist Johnny Marr was. When I saw The Stone Roses it was like, I could do that. The songs they were writing didn’t seem to come from another planet. They spoke to me. A door opened and that was it.

    With the exception of The Stone Roses, all those bands broke up while they were still at the top of the pile. Do you ever think Oasis should have called it quits after the massive Knebworth concerts?

    It would have been super fucking cool to announce it onstage and then get in a helicopter and fly off and that would be it. But then it would have spoiled everybody’s day. Looking back on it, we were all addicted to one thing or another. You’re addicted to the attention that fuels the drugs that fuel the ego that kind of thinks you can go on and do it forever. In the cold light of day, I can sit here and say we probably should have just disappeared. Instead, what we did is went in the studio and tried to make another record while [(What’s the Story)] Morning Glory was still on the charts. It was insane. But those were great crazy fucking days.

    Didn’t you think you were going to make 12 classic records?

    Oh, absolutely. I still think we’ll make 12 classic records. It might take us 25 albums to get there but we’ll get there in the end.

      Music Videos for the Deaf : Don't Look Back in Anger



    A wacky music lover has become a huge hit on the internet after using sign language to make pop videos for the deaf.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have viewed Tyrone Whittle’s unique interpretations of classic tracks by The Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, and The Smiths, which he performs in public.

    The 43-year-old can be seen signing the lyrics to the songs as he strikes some unusual dance moves in public places ranging from trains stations to shopping centres.

    Tyrone has built up a massive repertoire of other hits on YouTube by bands such as The Verve, The Cure and Coldplay.

    The smooth mover started performing his routines after a life-long interest in using movement to communicate and in a bid to impress his former partner.

    After learning sign language through a book, and refusing to allow his lack of dance practice to hold him back, his reputation blossomed.

    .... Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis has attracted 20,000 hits, while I Know It’s Over by The Smiths has gone 5,000 better.

      Kasabian Ready to Rock on Oasis Tour


    Kasabian have said they're looking forward to playing with Oasis after long-term fan Noel Gallagher invited them on their stadium tour.

    Singer Tom Meighan said: "The fact he likes us is just nice, it's a plus."

    Kasabian will play as guests of Oasis over seven dates in June and July next year, concluding the tour at Wembley.

    After a relatively quiet 2008, the band say they can't wait to get back out on the road when the third album comes out in the New Year.

    "There's gonna be a hell of a lot of noise," said guitarist and singer Serge Pizzorno.

    "It'll be almost deafening I think, we'll be banging on everyone's door."

    "We're just going to tour… tour, tour, tour," added lead vocalist Tom Meighan.

    "We're gagging to get back out you see, after some time off. We're real on stage, that's who we are and there's not many people left like that anymore."

    "It's a great line-up and the chance to play to all those people is a gift," added Serge.

    Not to mention of course, the chance to make some of the festivals squirm.

    "The problem is all the same bands play the same year. You get the same headliners, nothing really happens.

    "We might just not do any next year and just wait until 2010. Then when we do turn up, everyone's gonna be like: 'Wow this is going to be special, this is going to be incredible', rather than: 'Oh it's them again. And again."

    You won't get any disagreement from Tom, who is not the world's biggest festival fan either.

    He said: "I don't really enjoy it. I don't really like hanging around.

    "If we're playing it's great, but the toilets, the portaloos, the whole situation's horrible. Stick me in a hotel room or something, I'm alright."

    "Then again," argued Serge, "When festivals are special, when things happen, they're the most amazing places to be."

    The band got briefly reacquainted with their fans at the Union Chapel in North London over the weekend - where they performed as part of the Little Noise Sessions in aid of Mencap.

    viagogo, Europe’s leading ticket exchange, has seen ticket demand soar for Oasis’ mini-tour in Mexico as Ricky Hatton fans look for a famous Manchester double header.


    Hatton lines up against Paul Malignaggi on Saturday 22nd November in Las Vegas, with his fellow Mancunians, Oasis, beginning a run of three dates in Mexico four days later. Fans clearly have their eye on an extended celebration with hundreds of people snapping up Oasis tickets at the same time as securing their tickets for the big fight.

    Noel Gallagher is due to carry Hatton’s belt into the ring and the boxer intends to return the compliment by taking in the Oasis shows. His fans will be following him from the ring to Mexico for a night out with the Gallagher Brothers, with tickets trading for around £100 on viagogo for the show at the Sports Palace in Mexico City on Wednesday 26th November.

    Hatton’s loss to Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand this time last year has not stopped fans snapping up tickets for his return to Vegas. In fact viagogo has seen more than twice the number of tickets traded for the bout against Malignaggi than Mayweather. Tens of thousands of Hatton-ites are expected to descend on the gambling capital of the world to roar their champion home.

    Eric Baker, CEO of viagogo: “Ricky Hatton fans are the most passionate fans in boxing and we’ve seen a huge demand on viagogo for his return to Vegas. What’s interesting is that his fans have also been snapping up tickets on viagogo for Oasis’ dates in Mexico so it should be one hell of a party!”

      Oasis and James Brown Tunes at Hatton's Gym

    RICKY HATTON reckons he will be top of the pops in more ways than one when he faces Paulie Malignaggi on Saturday night.

    Superstar rock brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher will carry his IBO and Ring Magazine belts into the ring before the bout gets underway.


    And in Hatton's personal chart he has placed them at No4 as he spoke for the first time about his Oasis pals.

    He said: "Noel and Liam are going to carry both of my belts into the ring.

    "When I think of the most important things in my life, there's my family first and Campbell my son, then I've got boxing, next comes Manchester City, then it's Oasis."

    Hatton came close to persuading the Gallaghers to perform in the ring but schedules blocked it.

    The Hitman, 30, added: "If they wanted to perform before the fight it's something that could happen. At the moment they’re touring America and it might not be the right time.

    "They're coming to the fight, staying over and then they fly out the next day.

    "I'd be happy to let them put on a performance but maybe after this fight and possibly for a future fight.

    "I'm sure they would love it and I'm sure we could look at it at a future date."

    Hatton has been blasting out Oasis CDs as he prepares with new trainer Floyd Mayweather Snr for his first fight back in Vegas since he lost his unbeaten record to Mayweather Jnr last year.

    But it has not gone down too well with his trainer who has had Hatton running up the mountains wearing massive combat boots.

    He said: "The first day I went into Floyd's gym all I could hear belting out was James Brown.

    "I thought 'What is this s***e?' so I took it off and put on some Oasis.

    "Floyd was slagging me off for my taste but it was good fun.

    "I'm a bit of a karaoke merchant. There aren't many songs I don't know — Floyd has started calling me the white Luther Vandross."

    As for the boots that have been like anchors around his ankles, Hatton added: "I look like Sylvester Stallone in Cliffhanger.

    "It's really hard work with the air being so thin and I'm running at nearly 8,000ft above sea level.

    "I've never felt as tired as I do after a session with Floyd but I feel better for it."
