      Dylan Moran on Oasis: They were a Boring Band

     Another comedian with an opinion :


    Dylan Moran has said that Oasis were always a boring band.

    The stand-up comedian told The Quietus that he much prefers the Arctic Monkeys to the now-split Manchester group.

    Moran said: "The Arctic Monkeys are very witty. It's a banging tune with funny lyrics and they're having a whale of a time. What more do you want? Why does it have to be an apocalypse?

    "Oasis were boring the first time around. It's reconstituted from a f**king 60s compilation. It's music for people whose idea of a good time is roaring your lungs, never remembering anything you did yesterday and trying to pick out pieces of chicken tikka masala out of your pubes."

    He added of his tastes as a teenager: "I was very into New Order, Joy Division, all of that when I was younger. I had a lot of bootlegs that I saved up my pocket money to buy.

    "I had all the obscure early EPs. I did throw a lot of eggs into one basket, as you do in your teenage years - 'I am buying THESE records, I am wearing THIS'. I did quite a bit of that. You have to do it, wear your stupid shoes, wear your stupid hair."

      The Most Influential Albums of all Time ?

    Debating the quality of music must be one of Britain’s favourite pastimes. Rarely, however, does conversation turn to influential music. This list is designed not to provide a definitive guide, but to give you food for thought and provide a catalyst for further debate. So here goes: the 10 most influential albums of all time.




    10. The Spice Girls - Spice



    Mock if you will, but we’re talking about the most influential here, and make no mistake, The Spice Girls sensation changed music. Scary, Sporty, Posh, Baby and Ginger burst the Britpop bubble with the release of Spice: the fastest and bestselling album by a British artist since The Beatles. Liam Gallagher must have been sobbing into his Burberry jacket...



    09. The Who - My Generation



    Initially dismissed as a rushed and unrepresentative piece of work by The Who themselves after its release in 1965, My Generation has since cemented itself as one of the best rock albums of all time. The Who lent a fresh sound to rock, incorporating synthesized sounds that had rarely been heard beforehand, and inspiring future artists of the heavier rock kind, most notably, Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Iron Maiden.



    08. The Clash - London Calling



    It’s difficult to imagine a more fertile music environment than the North of England in the 1970’s and 80’s. One could be forgiven for thinking that you wouldn’t be able to walk down the street in Manchester in 1980 without bumping into Ian Cutis or Paul Weller. The Clash were by far the most notable exception to the rule; Southern lads at the very forefront of the Mod rock revolution. London Calling marked a change in direction for the band; their intriguing blend of rock, ska and pop really gave those Northerners a thing or two to think about.



    07. Michael Jackson - Thriller



    The most commercially successful album of all time, Thriller is considered MJ’s greatest musical achievement. This was his sixth studio album, however, and for this reason, its actual influence in terms of a change in direction in music is debatable. Nevertheless, the influence Jackson had and continues to have on pop music is too significant to ignore. Everybody loves this album.



    06. David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars



    Put simply, there hasn’t been anything like this before or since. Bowie’s originality is little short of staggering, with this album undoubtedly being his very finest work. Consistently credited as one of the most significant rock albums ever, Ziggy Stardust transcended its glam rock foundations to influence a number of other musical genres.



    05. Elvis Presley - Elvis Presley



    One word springs to mind. Originality. There was absolutely nothing like this before Elvis released his debut album in 1956. One could argue that Bill Haley was the proverbial ‘Big Bang’ in the rock world, but The King was something different altogether. He was a trailblazer in every sense of the word. He dared to go where no artist had gone before. He pretty much invented, mastered and then set alight the world of Rock and Roll, becoming quite literally one of the most iconic and recognisable figures of the 20th Century. He transcended music, and occupies a mantle not all that dissimilar to that of God to this day. Enough said...



    04. The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds



    This album is another example of a true change in direction. The experimental vocal harmonies, inventive instrumentals and sound effects make the cut of this album’s jib very interesting indeed, and nothing short of an absolute masterpiece. Cited by Paul McCartney and The Beatles as a major influence on their work, Pet Sounds largely dictated the direction in which pop music went for decades into the future.



    03. Oasis - Definitely Maybe



    In bronze medal position, we have one of the most successful British bands of all time. These pioneers of Britpop followed in the footsteps of their punk and post-punk rock predecessors and perhaps defined the 1990s. Locked in an intense charts battle with main rivals Blur in 1996, Oasis ultimately won the war and continued to make critically acclaimed music well into the noughties. Definitely Maybe is often hailed as the greatest album of all time by critics and the list of bands that claim to have been influenced by Oasis reads like a who’s who of modern music. The Killers, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian; I could continue... Oasis’s influence is simply staggering and this is the album that introduced them to the world.



    02. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band



    Well, you knew it was coming didn’t you. Think this is a bit of a cliché? There’s a reason why things become clichés. It’s because they’re inescapably true. Every now and again something comes along that just changes everything, and in the world of music, this is one such thing. The Beatles’s eighth studio offering was received with both popular and critical acclaim, achieving incomprehensible commercial success. This album virtually provided the soundtrack to the 1960’s. One critic even branded Sgt. Pepper: "A decisive moment in the history of Western civilization". Make of that what you will. Maybe they were more popular than God...



    01. The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols



    October 27th 1977. An unsuspecting British music scene is rudely awakened by Johnny Rotten screaming ‘I am an anarchist!’ If the previous 9 albums combined caused ripples in the music world, Never Mind the Bollocks was a 1000ft tidal wave of punk rock innovation that violently shook the very foundations of British music. Underestimate the influence of this album at your peril. It is unquestionably the most significant offering out of all the Manchester Brand artists of the era. When one considers that this list includes the likes of Joy Division, The Clash and The Jam, this statement mounts The Buzzcocks upon a solid gold plinth of musical infamy and superstardom. Without it, it’s unlikely you’d have heard of bands like Blink 182 and Greenday. It really was that important. Think I’m talking out of my hat? Listen to it and then listen to American Idiot. You’ll see what I mean...

      The Rise And Fall of Factory Records

    Dear readers, we've got two very special stories featured covering Manchester UK's legendary music scene for you over in our Live4ever Web-zine. Visit our Brit Rock Daily to read all about Factory Records and the people behind it and check out our exclusive interview with Manchester's Brit Pop Rockers "The Answering Machine".

    Here's a short excerpt to hopefully wet your apetite for more:


    Factory Records - The Rise And Fall of UK’s Legendary Indie Label

    On this day in 1992, Factory Records was finally declared bankrupt, ending one of the most fascinating stories in British music. Here we take a run through the rise and fall of the legendary label and the people behind it.

    In 1973 Tony Wilson, a Manchester born Cambridge graduate, returned to his home city to persue a career in journalism. He took a job as a reporter with Manchester’s independent station Granada Television, and became known for his ‘Kamikaze Corner’, in which he would undertake various stunts including a stab at Hang-gliding which was later recreated in the 2002 film ‘24 Hour Party People‘. In July 1976, Wilson was given the chance to combine his burning passion for music with his television career when he landed the presenters job for a new Granada music and culture programme called ‘So It Goes‘. Brought in to rival the BBC’s established music shows ‘Top Of The Pops‘ and ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test‘, the programme gave Wilson the platform to premiere a clutch of new bands who were emerging from the burgeoning punk scene, a scene which Wilson had fallen in love with.

    Just a month before ‘So It Goes‘ hit the airwaves for the first time, Wilson had been present at the Sex Pistols‘ now legendary gig at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall, and Wilson subsequently gave the band their television debut on his show which also introduced the likes of Iggy Pop, Blondie, Patti Smith and The Jam to the north of England.



    Not content with merely giving bands their break on his TV show, Wilson took his musical interest one step further when he began managing a small group of local bands including A Certain Ratio with his friend Alan Erasmus, who at the time was an actor who had landed a few small roles in programmes such as the long-running soap Coronation Street. It was in his new found status as a Manager that Tony Wilson visited the Stiff-Chiswick challenge at a local club called ‘Rafter’s‘ in April 1978. Amongst the acts playing that night were Joy Division, a four-piece who were led by enigmatic frontman Ian Curtis. Said to be angered at having to go on stage last, the band delivered a blistering performance which captivated Wilson. Rob Gretton, a DJ at the club that night, immediately approached Joy Division and became their manager. Gretton would soon become a partner and leading player in Factory.
    The next step for Tony Wilson was to find a venue to showcase his own bands as well as other groups which were emerging from the North West of England. Eventually, Wilson and Erasmus settled on a venue called The Russel Club in the Moss Side area of Manchester. They were given a Friday night spot and the club, on the suggestion of Erasmus, became known as The Factory on those Fridays. It was to promote this new club night that Wilson and Erasmus first enlisted the talents of Peter Saville, an art student, who’s subsequent art designs for Factory would become almost as legendary as the bands themselves.

      An Interview with Bonehead

    THE VORTEX
    Live at McQ’s, Bannockburn

    Saturday 14th November 2009

    ......The Vortex may have that well-documented attitude on stage but off it they are perfect gentlemen; opting to sit all night amongst their own fans rather than hiding away backstage in a bubble of their own self-importance. Keen to keep the rock ‘n’ roll myth alive however, the band are earlier spotted before the doors of the venue are opened, indulging in an excessive pre-gig cocktail of steak pie, chips and veg...

    Bonehead still enjoys the designer labels and Jaguar motor cars that his self-made wealth allows him but he’s refreshingly grounded. Despite travelling the world more than once as part of the biggest band of the last twenty years he‘s under no illusions as to who creates the best atmosphere,



    “I’ve done places like Rio and I’ve done Sydney and I’ve done New York, all these places, and people say, ‘What’s your favourite city in the world to play?’…. Glasgow mate. Why? The people. The reaction. The passion. They do it. It doesn’t matter if you play the Barrowlands or you play an arena. We played in Bathgate last night and they were down the front dancing. They were having it. They were loving it.”

    It’s difficult not to mention Oasis when speaking to Bonehead. After all, he was in the Burnage band before a Gallagher had even joined and he was a major factor in creating that ‘wall of sound’ on their best-loved albums. But any thoughts of avoiding the subject of his former band are quickly dashed when front man Mike Price mocks Bonehead during his sound check with jocular taunts of “Supersonic!” and “Live Forever!”

    But Bonehead looks back fondly on his time with Oasis. He’s quite rightly proud of what they achieved.

    “We were really, really fortunate in the fact that we turned up at King Tut’s, Alan McGee happened to be there, he liked what he saw and he said, ‘I like it. I love it. Do you want a record deal?’ We were in the right place at the right time, simple as that. We were just lucky in that sense.”

    And does Bonehead ever wonder what Oasis would have achieved had McGee not missed his train that night?

    “We did have a demo but we didn’t hand it out to people. Who knows what we would’ve done. Would we have handed it out to record companies? Would we have got bored with that? I don’t know.”

    So what does Bonehead think his band needs to do now, 16 years later, to get a record deal in this digital age?

    “These days it’s a lot different. You’ve got MySpace, you’ve got Facebook, you’ve got the Internet, you’ve got a massive tool there.

    Record companies aren’t what they were. We were selling millions. Bands don’t sell millions of records anymore. Record companies don’t have any money anymore so who knows? It’s a day at a time for us.”

    From multi-million selling albums and sell-out tours with Oasis in the nineties to the unsigned but hungry and ambitious Vortex in the noughties. How did Bonehead get himself back into a band and playing live again?

    “I was doing a radio show on BBC Radio Manchester with Terry Christian. Terry left and I ended up doing it with two girls who are big friends with Nick, the bass player in The Vortex, and I got to know Nick through them.

    He turned and said ’We’re doing a gig in Manchester, do you want to DJ before we come on?’ I said, ’I’ll tell you what, I might come on and do a few songs with you cos I really like your stuff’ and it turned into a regular thing where the Vortex were playing and I’d jump on and do two songs because I enjoyed doing that.

    I really wanted to join them but I didn’t dare ask them and they didn’t ask me so I just butted in… You‘ve got to be cheeky in life.”

    Conscious of the fact that Bonehead and Nick do most of the talking and not wanting to be cheeky to the rest of the band, I ask front man Mike how he’s enjoying life on the road. Mike is a little coy about answering questions but has something he wants to get off his chest:

    “I don’t do interviews. Chris Martin’s shit though I’ll tell you that and Coldplay are fucking rubbish.”

    So that’s why McGee didn’t liken The Vortex to his favourite “bed-wetters” then…

      Noel Gallagher Attacker Admits To Push - Sentencing in February 2010

    A clean-cut Pickering man admitted yesterday he attacked Noel Gallagher while the leader of British rock band Oasis performed in Toronto last year.

    Daniel Sullivan pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm against Gallagher, whose band was headlining at the Virgin Music Festival, on Toronto Island on Sept. 7, 2008.

    “Sullivan managed to make his way up to the main stage area, run past the electrical cords set up along the stage, pass the drum kit and lunge toward Noel Gallagher, shoving him violently from behind with great force,” said Crown attorney Ruth Neilson in reading an agreed statement of facts to Justice Richard Schneider in the Ontario Court of Justice.

    Gallagher, who was facing the crowd and playing his guitar at the time, suffered three fractured ribs when he fell forward on to a speaker. Sullivan then turned and ran toward Liam Gallagher, the leader singer who was standing 10 feet away from his brother Noel.

    “Sullivan almost made it to Liam Gallagher, but was tackled by security and was taken to the ground on stage,” said Neilson.

    “He was held backstage for police to attend. Police report Sullivan was resisting, struggling and screaming as he was arrested. Officers tried to calm him down.”
    Neilson said Sullivan was intoxicated at the time and has no recollection of how he was able to mount the stage, except that he “remembers attempting to climb over the fence .

    “It appears no one attempted to prevent Sullivan from gaining access to the stage until he was tackled on stage by Oasis,” said Neilson.
    Noel Gallagher was taken off stage and felt “winded” for some minutes but resumed playing the last 20 minutes of the show, court heard.

    When he was re-assessed two days later, he was told to cancel all performances until he was better. He kept feeling pain for the next two weeks.
    A CT scan in London, England on Sept. 22, revealed he had fractured his ninth, tenth and eleventh ribs on his left side.

    As a consequence, Oasis was forced to cancel five concerts that were scheduled to promote the band’s new recording. One of those concerts was slated for London, Ontario, and another was a major record launch in New York City.

    Noel Gallagher stated it took eight months before he felt normal again.
    Oasis rescheduled the London, On., concert last December.

    Schneider ordered a pre-sentence report for the 48-year-old Sullivan. His sentencing hearing was scheduled for Feb. 5, 2010.

      Further News of Liam Gallagher - Miles Kane Collaboration

    Miles Kane says he wants to get his new friend Liam Gallagher to appear on his forthcoming solo album.

    Liam Gallagher is to make a record with Miles Kane.

    The former Oasis singer - who recently revealed he wants to head back out on the road, two months after the group split following the departure of his guitarist brother Noel Gallagher - has befriended the Last Shadow Puppets star, who said he hopes the 'Live Forever' hitmaker will team up with him on his new solo LP.

    Miles told NME magazine: "I was chatting to Liam at his party. He's my hero and we both love Lennon and we were just chatting about my record and what he's up to.

    "I've got a couple of tunes on my record that are very Liam, there's 'My Fantasy', which he'd be great singing on, who knows, leave it open."

    Liam recently revealed he is currently working on new material with Oasis bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.

    He said: "We're sort of doing things at the moment. Not Oasis, Oasis is done. But with everyone except for Noel."

      Liam Gallagher's New Band Has 7 Demos Recorded

    Italian fan site Wonderwall.it is reporting that Liam Gallagher, on his recent stop in Italy to promote his clothing line Pretty Green, informed fans that his new, yet to be named band, already has 7 demos recorded.

    If reports are correct ex band members Gem Archer and Andy Bell, as well as Chris Sharrock (drums) and Jay Darlington (keyboards), are on board with Liam. Apparently Andy will switch to guitar to help Gem take up the empty spot Noel Gallagher has left behind. The band is currently talking to some bass players to complete the group's lineup.

    Liam Gallagher Has A New (Old) Band With No Name

    Earlier this year, something inevitable happened: Oasis was finally torn asunder. Noel Gallagher and his brother Liam, who made up the core of one of the biggest bands in the history of England, had always had a contentious relationship, often squabbling in public and undercutting each other in interviews.

    They managed to survive through seven studio albums, a handful of genuine worldwide hits (including "Wonderwall" and "Live Forever") and more than a few drug problems. Now that Noel has left to pursue other interests, Liam announced that he will continue performing with the remainder of the band. Noel's future remains uncertain, though there are so many former members of Oasis that he could still recruit a band and reasonably call it "Oasis."

    The name will be free, because Liam announced that his new old band would not be using it. But what will this new project be called? Liam hasn't announced anything yet, but here are a few suggestions.

    Better Than Ali: The Gallaghers always declared themselves as the greatest band in the world, but at this point one of them should declare himself the greatest single performer in the world, surpassing James Brown, Sir Laurence Olivier and Muhammad Ali.

    No Way Sis: This is actually the name of an excellent Oasis cover band, but they would certainly give the name up to their heroes, right?

    Boring and Ugly: That's what Liam once called Radiohead fans. Since the singer always needed a good feud to keep him going, why not take aim directly at the group that supplanted them as one of the U.K.'s most beloved acts?

    Liam & the Blokes
    : Because nobody ever cared about anybody in that band not named Gallagher anyway.

    The Beatles: They might as well, right?

    What do you think? What should Liam name the band? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

      Brotherly Love Will Reunite Oasis

    Oasis will get back together because the warring Gallagher brothers love each other but won’t admit it, according to the man who launched them to rock stardom.

    Creation Records founder Alan McGee, whose label has sold 60 million records and signed Oasis in 1993, has moved from London to enjoy an “early retirement” in a retreat near Hay-on-Wye, Powys.

    As their mentor, Glaswegian McGee compared his shock on hearing about the band’s split in August to the death of Michael Jackson.

    But he said he is still in regular contact with Liam and Noel – separately – and is confident that they will reform in the future.

    “It is hard for them but we still get on great,” he said.

    “I saw Noel last week and Liam the other month and I’m big mates with Bonehead (former guitarist Paul Arthurs),” he said.

    “Yeah, I see Marcus Russell (manager) who owns Ebbw Vale’s Rugby Club and Owen Morris is a talented producer.

    “At the moment, there is no chance of Oasis getting back together and I don’t want to go into it. But the brothers love each other. They are great people.”

    McGee signed Oasis as Britpop began to rise and form the backbone of the cultural movement known as “Cool Britannia”.

    But after being invited to a high-profile Britpop party by former Prime Minister Tony Blair in the 1990s, he now says he feels cheated by Labour.

    “I can’t forget Britpop but we were all conned,” he said.

    “After 17 years of the Tories, we needed to get them out.

    “We thought we were getting a Labour like a mix of Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan – but in Blair we really got another Margaret Thatcher.

    “Me and 13 people were conned. This Government has committed crimes against humanity in Iraq, destroyed our civil liberties with CCTV and given us a nanny state which is serving the banks.”

    But he is full of praise for Brecon and Radnor Liberal Democrat MP Roger Williams, who called at his house after he complained about access problems.

    “Roger gets my vote,” he said. “In London I didn’t even know the name of my MP.”

    At the end of the 1990s, the Creation empire crumbled after a hangover from a decade of drug abuse which saw McGee suffering from debilitating cocaine-related breakdowns.

    He says his “well-documented bad behaviour” will feature in the film Upside Down: The Story Of Creation Records, which is released in March.

    But McGee stresses that his days of drink and drugs are now well and truly over for the sake of his two children, aged 21 and nine.

    “I don’t drink or take drugs anymore. At 49 years old, I did eventually grow up,” he said.

    “People keep wanting me to get back into the record business, offering me crazy jobs like getting involved in an internet project, funded by the Chinese. But kind of like just being a dad.

    “I spend most of my time DJing with Death Disco in London and Hay-on-Wye and on the computer – I’m a turning into a virtual recluse, an eccentric,” he joked.

    “It is undignified when you have kids to be a ‘cano’ or an alcoholic. With kids it’s different; I want them to be proud of me.

    “And me and the kids are happier than we’ve ever been in Hay-on-Wye, and the missus is getting there.”

      Jedward Mania

    Jedward mania has given me a novel idea of how one could reunite Oasis - give the band a new name that's a combination of the Gallagher brothers' names.

    Niam or Loel? Could that work?

    The Jedward phenomena has passed me by a bit. All I know is if I was in a band, the name of which was a composite of the two members, I'd be cheesed off if I only got one letter and my brother had his whole name in.

    Edward must be the more dominant twin - in fact, if they go solo he'll flourish while J will struggle to get a J-ob. I think maybe J was originally conjoined to Edward's nut-bag and was grown in a petri dish.

    I have no evidence to back this theory - it's what we journalists call a hunch. Noel's "too good" girlfriend Sara is with Bizarre Lord Noel for all the right reasons.

    Noel revealed to me that when the pair were viewing houses he was vexed by Sara's indifference to his work. He asked the estate agent for a property with a study for him to write music in.

    "I've never seen you write any music?" said Sara. Baffled Noel responded: "You do accept that I do write music though?"

    She retorted: "I've never seen you."

    The exchange ended with the wrinkly Mancunian rocker dragging his gorgeous Scots bride down to Our Price to marvel at his back catalogue.

    Oh well, at least she's not with him just because he's famous - it must be the eyebrows, which look suspiciously like they may have been trimmed of late.

    The day after that was revealed I had an extraordinary encounter.

    I like to go running on London's Hampstead Heath of a morning and am keen to maintain my trademark black clobber while I burn the calories in preparation for my next film Arthur, in which I'm inexplicably naked fifty per cent of the time.

    I wear these tight black leggings when I run, which I like to think make me look like Spider-Man when he goes evil. But just might actually make me look a bit of a ponce.

    Especially as they don't leave much to the ol' imagination - sex-organ-wise.

    Imagine my horror, then, when on one of my morning sprints I heard: "All right big b*ll*cks", shouted by an approaching runner. The terror was compounded when close inspection revealed it to be Hampstead's rowdiest keep-fit fanatic Liam Gallagher.

    Thankfully he was wearing the Exact same costume as me.

    Who had the bigger package? Well we didn't stop to compare, but I left the encounter with a real spring in my step.

    In other news:

    Russell Brand has told the Telegraph his next projects would be producing a series of podcasts with friend Noel Gallagher which he promised would be a ''laugh and mucking around.''

    Russell Brand Scandalous Live at the O2 DVD is in stores now.

      Liam Gallagher Announces First Solo Gig



    Liam Gallagher has vowed to play his first solo gigs "in a couple of months'" time.

    The former Oasis frontman made the admission during a radio interview with Italian station Radio Deejay this morning (November 13). During the interview, he also gave more details about what caused Oasis to split.

    Asked by presenters whether he was missing touring since the band split in September, Gallagher responded: "I'll be back doing that [playing live] within a couple of months. I've just done a tour, I always miss singing songs. I miss the people."

    He added that he isn't keen on playing smaller venues for the gigs, before confirming that he's currently writing new material with his former Oasis bandmates, minus brother Noel.

    "We're sort of doing things at the moment. Not Oasis, Oasis is done. Everyone except for Noel," Gallagher explained.

    Talking about Oasis's split, Gallagher said he thinks his brother had wanted to leave the band for some time.

    "To be quite honest, I think our kid [Noel Gallagher] wanted out. But you'll have to ask him when he comes in and does his little solo thing. We had an argument – but we've had bigger ones, about more important people. Basically, I think he wanted out, wanted something different, but he hadn’t got the bollocks to tell the band or the fans."

    The singer also went into specifics about the argument that lead to Noel Gallagher announcing he was leaving Oasis in August, confirming that both brothers had smashed each other's guitars.

    "I didn't smash it [the guitar] on him, I wish I had, man. He sort of… treated my guitar poorly, which was a present off my wife," he said. "So I thought it was only fair to pay the compliment [back] so I smashed one of his," Gallagher explained, adding: "It sounds ridiculous, like a pair of old women."

    However, the frontman added that he regrets smashing Noel Gallagher's guitar, as it was Oasis' property.

    "That guitar of mine was mine. The guitar that I smashed of Noel's was Oasis' guitar. Part of the thing that I pay for. So I shouldn't have smashed it really!"

      Only 2 Proper Bands Left After Oasis Split



    Mercury nominated and Q award winning songwriter for adored Leicister City rockers Kasabian, Serge Pizzorno, sat down with clickliverpool to talk about a year to remember. The band is coming off a highly successful one with a number one award winning album 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' and a sold out arena tour ahead of them.

    “This is it where it starts man,” Serge exclaims. “This is it where it all kicks off. Playing a stadium tour is just the beginning for us and I don’t want this to be the peak – there’s work to be done!”

    Playing to huge crowds is nothing new for the guys as they had joined their mentor super stars Oasis on a massive stadium tour as support band .

    “I’m not scared at all about playing arenas but it’s a difficult thing – you’ve got to be careful. They’re big buildings so you’ve got to put on a show but also keep the vibe going. I think it gives us more of a chance to do everything bigger – make it a real psychedelic trip. It will be a beautiful show.”

      Bonehead Sad Oasis Came to an End with a Fight


    He spent eight years in Britain’s biggest band – but Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs is going back to basics with his new outfit.

    The former Oasis guitarist even drove the tour bus when The Vortex recently toured Europe
    .

    “It was us against Europe,” grins the 44-year-old who quit Oasis in 1999. “We spent a couple of weeks in Germany and Holland, and it was brilliant. It was more of a feeler for the band, letting them see how it is to be in each other’s pockets 24/7 in a different land.”

    Bonehead joined The Vortex full time in January after a string of guest appearances with the band.

    “I got to know the bass player when I was co-presenting a radio show for BBC Manchester,” he recalls. “I went to see them play and really liked what I saw and heard.

    “They asked me to play a couple of songs with them when they performed in Manchester and it became a regular thing. At the end of last year they asked me to join full time and I jumped at it.”

    Bonehead’s eight years in Oasis means he has a wealth of experience to share with the younger members of The Vortex.

    “I’m the old man of the band, the others are in their early 30s,” he laughs. “I’ve been giving them advice, simple things like booking a hotel for days off and getting a van. It’s always ‘leave it to Bonehead’. But I’ve added a dimension soundwise as well. It’s now more polished and bigger.”
    After building up a following in Manchester and London, where they had a residency at Alan McGee’s Death Disco club, The Vortex are undertaking a UK tour.

    Bonehead says that for him there’s an element of deja vu about the band whose line-up is completed by singer Mike Price, guitarist Maz Behdjet, bassist Nick Repton, backing singer Jaxx and beats man Sean O’Donnell.

    “People say we’ve got a Manchester sound, whatever that is, but it was their attitude I was attracted to. It reminded me of the feeling I had in 1993 with Oasis. There’s a real gang mentality, a real passion.”

    He says there is no parallel between him joining The Vortex and Noel Gallagher joining, and taking over, his band, Oasis.

    “When Noel came into Oasis, me and Liam had three songs written between us. Noel came in with Live Forever, Round Our Way, Cigarettes & Alcohol and Rock & Roll Star all written. With The Vortex I walked into a band that was already armed with songs. There’s only one song in the set that’s mine.”

    And his verdict on Oasis’s demise?

    “I’m just sad it came to an end with a fight. I wish they could have gone out with a bow – ‘Thank you, goodnight. We were Oasis’.”

      Liam Gallagher Interested in Miles Kane Collaboration


    Liam Gallagher held a launch party for his clothing label Pretty Green in London on Saturday night, where, according to one report, he was trying to persuade Miles Kane to form a band with him.

    Richard Ashcroft, Kasabian, Keith and Liam from The Prodigy, a heroically pissed Ricky Hatton, Phil Etheridge from The Twang and TV presenter Holly Willoughby were amongst the celebs in attendance at the swanky bash at the Gore Hotel in Kensington.

    Unsurprisingly there was no sign of Liam's older brother Noel.

    According to The Sun, Gallagher spent most of the night chatting to Miles Kane from The Last Shadow Puppets about forming a band together.

    A 'source' told the paper: "Liam was being really passionate. It looked like he was recruiting."

    Praising the former Oasis man's taste in clothes, Serge Pizzorno from Kasabian said: "He knows how to put an outfit together. He's got some style but he still needs a few tips from me.”

      Ricky Hatton Get's Down on Liam Gallagher Party Dance Floor

    I can guess who was feeling Pretty Green yesterday - Ricky Hatton.

    The Hitman rocked up at the official launch of Oasis star Liam Gallagher's clothing line on Saturday night.


    And the boxer spent most of the night wobbling about on the dancefloor at the London bash.

    One party-goer said: "Ricky owned the dance floor all night. He was the star of the show. Sometimes he just stood there on his own. It was funny but a bit tragic. He was off his face."

    It was an odd mix of folk at the Gore Hotel, in Kensington. I was shocked to see This Morning's seemingly-sweet host Holly Willoughby chatting to Liam's missus Nicole Appleton and on a tear-up with Kasabian and Richard Ashcroft.

    Another surprise guest was Sugababe Heidi Range, there with her bloke Dave Berry.

    One person noticeable by his absence though was, of course, Liam's brother NOEL.

    Liam spent most of the night chatting to Miles Kane from The Last Shadow Puppets. There's talk he's trying to persuade Miles to form a band with him.

    A source said: "Liam was being really passionate. It looked like he was recruiting."

    Pretty Green designer Liam also paid a backhanded compliment to Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno.

    He said: "He knows how to put an outfit together. He's got some style but he still needs a few tips from me."

    Seemed like a top night. Liam even mixed his own tequila cocktail for the party.

    It was probably too many of those which did for Ricky.

    Last I heard they were all still at it in Liam's penthouse room at 8am yesterday.

    It seems the rocker is showing no signs of slowing down.

      Liam Gallagher Plays in Local Fund Raising Football Game

    A football side poses with a surprise new signing - rocker Liam Gallagher.

    Liam, 37, was secretly asked to play for bankrupt Berkhamsted FC in a fund-raising game.

    And 200 fans saw the Manchester City supporter star in a 5-2 win over The Arcadia Group at his side's Hertfordshire ground.

    Paul Smith, boss of club sponsor Stoneforce, said: "We recently refurbished Liam's house and I asked him to play. It was great to see everyone's faces when he came.

    "He raced up and down the wing and came close to scoring a few times. He's pretty fit. Then he stayed until 1am drinking and telling stories.

    "He even played the lads new songs. He had a great time.

      Something For Liam's Wonderwall

    How do you make a normal wall into a Wonderwall? How about hanging a huge picture of yourself and your wife Nicole Appleton on it?



    The Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher was spotted taking delivery of this huge canvas of himself gurning while Nicole grins at their north London mansion.

    There were also several smaller prints of the couple, so we can only assume they're making a shrine to themselves. That'll be fun at dinner parties.

      Noel Gallagher has ditched his plans for a solo album

    Noel Gallagher has ditched plans for a solo album now Oasis are no more.

    It is more then six months since the guitarist and songwriter hinted to Q Magazine that he was working on a solo project after a show at London's Albert Hall.

    But now he say's "I'm not doing a solo album as I'm taking time off.

    "I'm enjoying bumming around watching Coronation Street. I much prefer it to East Enders. That show is too depressing for me."

    Noel was at the Music Industry Trust dinner and, with his arm wrapped firmly around Playlist's Natalie Edwards, he told her: "I never tire of being told I'm a legend or people wanting their photo taken with me.

    "As long as it's with girls like you."

    What a charmer.

      New Oasis Could Reform - Wanna Bet?

    Oasis still may reform according to Paddy Power and if they don’t Paddy Power are offering odds on a range of names for Liam Gallagher’s new band. The most likely outcome for the egotistical Mancunian is he will name the band after himself!


    Oasis Could Reform But Most Liekly Band Name Is Gallagher
    Paddy Power don’t think we have necessarily seen the end of Oasis, they offer 2/1 that Oasis (including Liam Gallagher) record new material or perform live before 2011. If that doesn’t happen then it is very likely Liam will be forming his own band and Paddy Power are betting on the name of that band, the favourite is ‘Gallagher’ at 5/1 with Paddy Power whilst another strong contender is ‘Burnage’ (are in Manchester where Oasis spent their early days) and that can be backed at 8/1 with Paddy Power.


    Interesting Band Names Could Include Dig At Noel Other Liam Gallagher related names include ‘Our Kid’ which is 18/1 with Paddy Power, ‘Genius’ at 25/1 with Paddy Power, ‘Maine Road’ at 33/1 with Paddy Power or ‘Tambourine’ at 33/1 with Paddy Power. Less likely names include ‘NOASIS’ which is 66/1 with Paddy Power or ‘Noel Is A Tw*t’ which is 150/1 with Paddy Power. To find out the odds on more names and to bet on the success of Liam’s new band, visit the Paddy Power website and click on Novelty Bets.

      Noel Gallagher : I'm Quitting London For Manchester"

    The 42-year-old star announced his plans at the Music Industry Awards held last night.


    The revelation comes just over two months since Oasis split after a bust-up between the Gallagher brothers before a gig in Paris on 28 August. Noel said he �could not go on working with Liam a day longer�.

    Speaking at the awards at the Grosvenor House hotel, Noel said: �I'm leaving London to go back up north, to Manchester. I've been advised to do a Rod Stewart, as in a tax exile, but I don't want to do it. But London has lost its spark.�

    The Mancunian songwriter moved to the capital in the wake of the band's smash hit 1994 album Definitely Maybe. The news is the clearest sign yet that Noel is now settling down with girlfriend Sara MacDonald and their two-year-old son Donovan.

      Noel Gallagher Celebrates with Pals Ross and Brandt



    Britain’s Music Industry Trusts’ Award, presented annually to recognize achievement and generosity in the music business, was held tonight at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The 2009 recipient was Jonathan Ross, whose programs are hugely influential in providing exposure to both new and established musical acts.

    On hand to help celebrate and honor Mr. Ross were two of his closest pals, comedian Russell Brand and musician Noel Gallagher (of the late, great Oasis). It’s fantastic to see these three talented, funny men together in one place … now if only Brand would make his long-awaited return visit to Wossy’s Friday night show!

      Michael Rother of Neu defends Oasis Track on Brand Neu Compilation

    The Quietus' man of metal Dr Rock recently interviewed kosmische legend Michael Rother ....

    During the course of the interview, Rother was asked about his thoughts on the Brand Neu! compilation, released earlier this year to much hoo-ha and complaints from Neu! fans upset at the inclusion of Oasis track 'I Can See It Now'.

    But it seems as if the man from Neu! himself isn't with the haters: "I very much enjoyed listening to that compilation," he told us. "To be honest, I also quite like the Oasis track. I mention that because I read in some reviews that they got a bit of a beating. It was of course surprising to read that Noel Gallagher expressed his admiration for Neu! and that he convinced his brother to adopt some of the ideas. When I heard that Oasis single 'The Shock Of The Lightning', I immediately understood the idea behind that, the fast-forward movement, the strong surge in combination with a Beatles-esque sound. To me that's an interesting combination, Neu! crossed with Beatles ideas. But some of the bands on Brand Neu! don't impress me that much. I would have liked to have Fuck Buttons on there."


    Here’s the tracklisting in full:

    Ciccone Youth (Sonic Youth) ‘Two Cool Rock Chicks Listening to Neu!’

    Primal Scream ‘Shoot Speed / Kill Light’

    Pets With Pets ‘We Only Found This Place’ (unreleased)

    Oasis ‘I Can See It Now’

    Foals ‘Titan Arum’

    Cornelius ‘Wataridori’

    Holy Fuck ‘Super Inuit’

    Kasabian ‘Stuntman’

    LCD Soundsystem ‘Watch The Tapes’

    School Of Seven Bells ‘Device fuer M’ (exclusive for this compilation)

    Fujiya & Miyagi ‘Electro Karaoke’

    Hook & The Twin ‘They’ll Get Your Head’ (unreleased)

    La Duesseldorf ‘Sketch 1_08’ (Klaus Dinger’s last recording)

    Michael Rother ‘Neutronics 98’

      Jay-Z on Gallagher Collaboration: It's Not Like We Had Any Talks of Doing It

    Jay-Z has refuted reports that he will be teaming up with former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher in near future.

    The rapper clarified that his comments about a possible project were misinterpreted.

    “It was an offhand comment, someone asked me if I would work with him. I don’t have any problem, so I said anything is possible,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

    He added: “It’s not like we had any talks of doing it, it’s like someone asked me would you work with him, I said ‘Yeah, I don’t have any problem with it’.”

    Gallagher had criticized the organizers of the U.K.’s Glastonbury festival last year for bringing in Jay-Z to play in the rock n’ roll festival.
