      Liam Gallagher and Family Take Vacation on Cruise Ship

    Twitter was a-buzzin on Tuesday with news that Liam Gallagher, lead singer of one of Britpop’s most successful act Oasis, was spotted around Halifax shopping with his kids and wife Nicole Appleton.

    The controversial rocker was enjoying a day around town during a stopover by a luxury Silversea Cruises ocean liner, popping into downtown stores like Argyle Street’s Biscuit.

    Gallagher reportedly began recording his first post-Oasis material with former bandmates over the past winter and expects to release a new single in October with an album to follow in 2011.

      Noel Gallagher Denies He's Working on Demos with Andy Bell and Gem Archer

    New official figures show OASIS had a very lucrative final album with Dig Out Your Soul in 2008.


    Recently filed accounts for Big Brother Records reveal Liam and Noel Gallagher earned £13million from record sales that year.

    The two brothers were paid a salary of £144,000 and split a dividend of £3million between them.

    It doesn't reveal their full earnings for the year because they also own Noise And Confusion Touring and Oasis Merchandising.

    Noel is a regular Bizarre reader and pointed out that he hasn't spoken to Amorphous  Androgynous since September last year and has not been demoing with Andy Bell and Gem Archer , like I told you earlier this week.

    He has mainly been eating crisps, being a family man, watching Sky Sports News and following Manchester City.

    Apologies, chief.

      Adam Ant Wants His Ass Kicked by Liam Gallagher

    Interview excerpt with Adam Ant:


    Adam Ant: I'm a punk rocker, I'm a pirate metal rocker now because these guys, metal, they look great, they're sexy, they play hardcore and they don't give a monkeys. And they look like Hayley. And you. So why not, fuck them. No really, I'd love to go on there. I'd love Paul Morley, Liam Gallagher talking about style. Oasis have been ruling the roost, remaking Beatles records and trying to convince people it's not. They've got one fucking song, 'Wonderwall'. What else you got? I mean, Noel's OK but hey, you ain't fucking Miles Davies, you certainly ain't fucking Bryan Ferry and you aint Adam Ant, Charlie."

    He's won some kind of poll in Q magazine for the best front man ever
    AA: "Well in my view he's the best backman. I mean, I've got a Q Award, I don't give a fuck. I gave it to me mum. Q, I mean fucking hell it must have cost them all of 30 pence, they can stick it up their ass. Those ones up there, the Ivor Novello awards, they're the only ones I've got in my flat because they are for songwriting, they're Oscars. I've not met the man, I mean he's probably a very nice chap…"

    No he's not, I've met him

    AA: "Marc Bolan was lovely. Bryan Ferry was lovely. Michael Jackson was lovely. Liza Minelli was lovely. I'm dropping these names because I fucking met these people and they taught me something: Be nice. People that are really brilliant are really nice, people that ain't got a lot of mouth. So here you go Liam, you cunt. I'd like to have a fight with him whichever way he wants: physically, mentally I'd beat him in anyway shape or form, I know that."

    Well, if anyone ever needed a slap…
    AA: "Yeah but he's probably got a very big bodyguard, but that's alright because I've got Hayley. I mean even the Spice Girls offered him out and he wouldn't take it."

      Andy Bell and Gem Archer to work with both Liam and Noel Gallagher


    Oasis stars Andy Bell and Gem Archer must have sore backsides from sitting on the fence.

    Neither bass player Andy nor guitarist Gem have taken sides with either Liam or Noel Gallagher since the Oasis split last summer.

    But Liam is about to get them into rehearsal for live dates later this year and Noel has also needed the lads for demo sessions.

    So it's all pointing towards some difficult times when the inevitable clash of commitments happens.

    A source said: "It's a tricky situation for Gem and Andy.

    "They are working with both Liam and Noel. Liam's begun rehearsing tracks for his new project, while Noel has been doing demos of songs as well.

    "It's great for Gem and Andy, though. They get paid twice, but it's bound to lead to trouble in the future."

    I hear Noel has more than enough material for a solo album.

    He's had house moving and family duties to take care of but once that has settled I'm sure he'll be back to work.

    Especially after another taste of the action on stage with Paul Weller last week.

    He has also been recording with dance producers Amorphous Androgynous.

    Duo Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans are responsible for one of the best rave tracks of all time - 1991's Papua New Guinea, recorded under the name Future Sound Of London.

    Last year the duo re-tooled Oasis single Falling Down to spectacular psychedelic effect.

    A lot of people are excited to hear what tunes will emerge, me included.

      Noel Gallagher Set For the Silver Screen

    Manchester City FC and production company Endemol Sport have confirmed that they have teamed up to create what they are calling 'a landmark feature film' about the Premiership club.

    Titled Blue Moon Rising, the film is set for release in cinemas in the Summer, with Endemol Worldwide Distribution handling TV and DVD distribution following its run-out on the silver screen.

    The news follows on the back of rumours earlier in the year, suggesting that Endemol (which has a deal in place to help City build its brand globally) was set to make a TV documentary. At the time there was no indication that the production would secure a cinema release.

    Blue Moon Rising focuses on a group of City fans through the 09/10 season, capturing their emotions in victory and defeat, while also taking the viewer (who we presume is also a fan) into the boardroom with exclusive footage and access to the club's new owners.

    An interview with Noel Gallagher is also featured.

    Manchester City's brand and marketing officer David Pullan said of the project: "Blue Moon Rising reinforces Manchester City's standing as the most fascinating story in the world of football.

    "We wanted to give football fans around the world a unique insight into the club and its future by getting them close to the action in this unique year.

    "It will be a lasting testimony to one of the most exciting years in Manchester City's history."

    The film is directed by Stewart Sugg and produced by Nick London.

    Endemol Sport MD Gregg Oldfield added: "This promises to be an entertaining, intimate, and funny film that reveals a passion for football rarely seen before on the silver screen."

      Russel Brand Goes On the Defense

    He rubbishes Liam Gallagher's claim...

    Russell Brand has denied he was responsible for the break-up of Oasis.

    Earlier this month, singer Liam Gallagher appeared to suggest his brother Noel’s friendship with Brand was behind the split last year.

    He also compared Noel and the comedian to Neil and Christine Hamilton.

    In an interview with Rolling Stone, Brand said he had spoken to Noel about Liam’s comments, and that the only people to blame for the band’s break-up were the band themselves.

    “Yeah, that was a bit odd,” Brand said. “I spoke to Noel about that.

    “Look it's not like you're in a band for years and then you start hanging out with Russell Brand and it's over – as if the two things are mutually exclusive.

    “The only people responsible for the breakup of Oasis are in Oasis.”

    Brand added: “I don't want to be the Oasis Yoko Ono without even getting to have sex with John Lennon!”

    The comedian’s comments came in the same interview in which he claimed that exposing young musicians to hard drugs would help strengthen the music industry.

      No Jail Time For Daniel Sullivan



    The man who attacked Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher as he performed on a Toronto stage received a conditional sentence of 12 months Wednesday, meaning no jail time.

    He’ll serve his sentence in the community under house arrest.

    Daniel Sullivan, 48, of Pickering, Ont. had pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm.

    The father of three said he was so drunk he couldn’t remember how he got backstage at the Virgin Music Festival in September 2008 and pushed Gallagher from behind.

    Sullivan was then tackled by security guards as he approached Gallagher’s younger brother, singer Liam.

    Gallagher suffered three broken ribs and the band was forced to cancel several concerts.

    The Crown was seeking a sentence of six to eight months in jail. Defence had asked for the conditional sentence.

      Man who attacked Noel Gallagher to be sentenced today

    The man who shoved Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher so hard that the rocker said he felt like he "had been hit by a bus" is to be sentenced Wednesday in a Toronto court.

    Daniel Sullivan ran on stage and pushed Gallagher from behind into his speakers during a music festival in September 2008. Gallagher said in a victim impact statement that he has undergone months of rehabilitation and doses of pain killers, but still suffers from pain.

    Gallagher suffered three broken ribs and the band was forced to cancel concerts in Paris and New York.

    Sullivan, a 48-year-old Pickering, Ont., contractor, pleaded guilty to causing bodily harm.

    He admitted he was drunk and couldn't remember how he got backstage at the Virgin Music Festival.

    His lawyer said the combination of daily stress, alcohol and keeping a business afloat during a recession led to the attack.

    In videos taken by fans that went viral on YouTube, Sullivan is seen storming the stage and pushing Gallagher into his floor monitors while the band performed their 1995 hit (What's the Story) Morning Glory."

    A flailing Sullivan is then tackled by security guards as he approaches Gallagher's younger brother, singer Liam.

    The Crown is seeking a sentence of six to eight months in jail - suggesting that Sullivan, an amateur actor, had perhaps been seeking his 15 minutes of fame.

    Gallagher has also launched a $2-million civil lawsuit against Sullivan.

    In addition to a string of hits in the '90s the band is also known for the bickering between the Gallagher brothers. The remaining members disbanded earlier this year after Noel left the band last August after an altercation with Liam.

      Adam Ant's New Album Has Ex Oasis Member On It


    Adam Ant has confirmed to NME.COM that he is working on his first album in 15 years, and that an ex-Oasis member reportedly plays on it.

    The album, which will be named 'Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner's Daughter', also features collaborations with former 3 Colours Red guitarist Chris McCormack and Ant's long-time songwriting partner Marco Pirroni.

    He said that "one of the songs features a member of Oasis". Morrissey's writing partner Boz Boorer is also understood to have contributed to the album.

    According to Ant, the album is a "live record that lends itself to performance" and will feature a "kind of concept. It's a very old fashioned, old school, step-by-step album".

    In addition, Ant has recorded a song in tribute to the late Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, who died earlier this month, and who also once managed Adam & The Ants.

    Named 'Who's A Goofy Bunny Then?', the track was only previously available as a demo recorded in the early '80s, but Ant says he wants to release a new version in tribute to the late punk manager.

    "Malcolm was a sort of mentor in my life" he explained. "As close as you can get to a surrogate father."

    The song takes its name from a term of endearment bestowed upon McLaren by Ant - referring to his "quite prominent teeth".

    Meanwhile, Ant admitted that he still has "a whole bunch" of demos from the early part of his career that he is considering revisiting and recording properly now.

    "[There are] literally about a hundred songs done on a four-track and I use them whenever I can," he explained. "There was a whole album before 'Dirk Wears White Sox' (1979 debut album) that never really came out, but I've still got the masters. It's a labour of love, this catalogue. To get rid of it would be like giving away something John Lennon and Paul McCartney banged out in a night in a pub in Liverpool. I think it's your duty to catalogue your work."

    Adam Ant's last solo album, 'Wonderful', was released in 1995.

      Some Highlights from Noel Gallagher's Talk Sport Appearance Last Night

    Noel Gallagher was on Andy Goldstein’s Sport Bar on Talk Sport last night (Sunday 18 April) and spoke about the following:

    His circle of friends: “I actually bumped into Mike Pickering today in the park (Regents Park), I socialise with him and some other people from bands when they’re in town, but not really... Weller, maybe... but I’ve not got a massive circle of, I like to keep myself to myself.” “I’ve got lots of mates but they’re kinda in bands so they’re never really in the same place at the same time, if I’m not on tour, my mates in Kasabian will be off on tour, or Weller will be doing summat so it’s very rare we’re all together at the same time.” “My best mate is, he’s not famous, he’s just kinda, he’s just my mate, his name’s Strageboy. He used to play keyboards in Oasis in ’97 and he was just like a mate of a mate but he came on tour with us to play keyboards and we were at an airport lounge one afternoon and I was just looking at him, going, ‘he’s just really weird’, you know, and the name Strangeboy stuck and I guess he’s my best mate, but I’ve got another best mate who lives up in Manchester, but I guess my best mate in London would be... I guess Weller’s my oldest friend, I suppose, and I don’t mean the fact that he’s like 50, I mean the fact that I’ve known him for a long time, I’ve known him for about 12 years.” “There’s an unwritten law that I never go out with Paul Weller, he’s a nightmare. He’s hardcore – if you go out with him, if you come home at all there’s bumps and bruises, there’s been scuffles in the street and you’ve probably fallen out with him.”

    Man City’s loss to Man U: “I haven’t got any complaints, United wanted it more, I just thought City were really flat and very Italian. I thought we got what we deserved, which was nothing, it seemed like Mancini had settled for a draw on the hour, you know what I mean, and United kept coming, coming and coming and to be quite honest, although I did swear at the television and nearly threw it out the window when he scored, you could kinda see it coming, you know what I mean?, they wanted it more. I felt pretty let down by the end of it, but no complaints on the score.” “We got away with it in the first half, but the way Mancini played it in the previous two derbies, he never went for it in the first half, anyway, but I cannot believe that he never got his head around putting somebody on Scholes in the second half and I had a real problem with him taking, not so much taking off Johnson, but if he had taken off Johnson and put on Wright-Phillips, when Wright-Phillips came on he had Evra booked within five minutes, so it would have put him under pressure, but he puts on Viera, it’s like, you know, come on, I mean we’re supposed to be going for the Champions League here, it’s like we’re not gonna get it by drawing games, you know.” “When Tevez was going on about the players being tired in the week I was thinking, ‘Oh come on! You’re only kicking a football around twice a day’, but they did, de Jong and Barry have started virtually every single game for the last six months, and Tevez has played for Man United, obviously he’s a professional, he knows what he’s on about and he’s been there in the Champions League and he’s won the Premiership so he knows what it takes, I thought they looked a bit tired, I thought there was no zip to the game, I thought there was no, I thought there was no drive going forward, but you don’t know whether they’re told that by the manager, to keep their energy and stuff, but they did look tired, I’ve got to say.”

    Man City’s chances of finishing 4th: “In a way, United winning has given them something to play for, if we had put United out of the title race yesterday they’d have had nothing to play for at Old Trafford, so hopefully they’ll do Tottenham. If we can get something, anything at the Emirates then it’ll stand us in good stead but I still think it’ll go down to the last game.”

    His opinion on Mancini: “He’s not the guy who is gonna, em, as long as Hiddink and Mourinho are out there then they’re the two guys that everybody’s gonna be talking about. I’m afraid, you know, if you want a nil-nil draw away on the last day of the season, then he’s probably your man, but you’ve got to go out and win games in the Premier League, it’s as simple as that, you know, you’re not gonna get anything for nothing in our league, it’s not like Italy. I think he’s history at the end of the season, anyway, I think he’s gone at the end of the season, you don’t give someone a six month contract, do you, you know what I mean? If he’s your man, you give him a five year contract and that’s the end of it, you don’t give someone a six month contract and then a three year one on top of that, IF you get in the Champions League.” “I think for City to attract the top top players, like Kaka and all that, you know, they’ve got.. players wanna play for the big, glamorous managers, that’s my opinion, anyway, and I’m not sure whether, I’m not sure whether Mancini, well, tactically he doesn’t seem to have it for me, but I think until they get somebody like Mourinho or Hiddink, that can inspire the players then, you know, I think they’ll always be looking. But you wouldn’t hear any players coming out and criticising Mourinho’s methods, would you?, cos they’re in awe of him, right, for Tevez to come out and say that in the week leading up to the derby there’s got to be something going on, and there’s been rumours that Bellamy’s had a pop at him and all that kinda of thing, so, you know, there must be something not right. He seems like a nice enough guy and all that, and obviously he’s kinda done the business in Italy but this isn’t Italy, you know, there are no easy games in our league.”

    His plans for the week: “I’m gonna get me hair cut this week and.. hang on a minute, I’ve got something to do this week... I’ve got something important to do this week.... dono... I can’t remember what I’m doing, I’m getting old, I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing...”

      Oops , He Does it Again: Jay-Z covers Wonderwall at Coachella



    Jay-Z reprised his cover of 'Wonderwall' at Coachella Festival on Friday night.

    Much of the 90-minute set featured guitars with samples and backing tracks from The Doors, The Prodigy and even U2 being added in at various junctures.

    In an echo of last year's Glastonbury performance, he also used a breakbeat-augmented snippet of Oasis' 'Wonderwall'.

    Towards the end of the show, Jay-Z devoted a segment of the set to cover early parts of his career which culminated in a mass sing-a-long of 'Hard Knock Life'.

    He then invited Beyonce on stage to duet with him on the finale of 'Young Forever' as fireworks lit up the desert sky behind them.

      Noel Gallagher wants to use a choir on his forthcoming solo album

    Noel Gallagher wants to use a choir on his forthcoming solo LP. The former "Oasis" guitarist, who quit the band August 2009 following a series of explosive rows with his brother, frontman Liam Gallagher, wants the Crouch End Festival Chorus to appear on the record after performing with them at London's Royal Albert Hall last month.

    "I was speaking to Noel's manager about this and I was saying to him," David Temple, the choir's conductor, said. "We'll get the very best out of the choir if we get any recording. It'd be in a studio, we'd love it."

    While Noel has said little about his solo record, Liam has revealed his is working with his fellow former Oasis' band mates, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, but won't be reprising the name because he hates it. He said, "It's not Oasis. That was a s**t name anyway. I'm glad to see the back of it."

    "There's one that we're digging at the moment, but we're going to get on with the music and see how it goes. If we haven't got a better one by then, we'll go with the one we're into."

    "We'll be on stage this year, without a doubt. We're halfway through the record, the demos, that is. We're in the studio this April to see if this producer works out. If he does, we'll crack on with the album through June and July."

      Paul Weller on Liam and Noel Gallagher: 'Lovely boys. They're all good. They're all buzzing'

    Paul Weller says Oasis’ split last year was the best possible outcome for brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher.

    The Manchester group disbanded after guitarist Noel said he could no longer work with his brother.

    “I feel the weight's been lifted from both of their shoulders and creatively it's going to be better for everyone,” Weller told XFM.

    Noel and Liam are currently working on solo albums, and Weller, who is friends with both, said he expected their new projects to be “really good”.

    “Lovely boys. They're all good. They're all buzzing,” he added.

    Weller is currently promoting his new album, ‘Wake Up The Nation’, which is released on Monday (April 19).

      Russel Brand's New Film Inspired by the Gallaghers, Jagger and Morrissey


    Russell Brand has said his latest film role has been inspired by the likes of Liam and Noel Gallagher, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Morrissey.

    The comic is currently filming for Get Him To The Greek, which sees him reprise his character Aldous Snow from 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall.


    In the new film, Snow fronts a band called Infant Sorrow, and when he was asked whether any musicians had inspired the role, he replied: "Lots. Jagger, Keith Richards, Bowie, Morrissey, Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher. I'm friendly with some musicians so I'm able to watch them. They're very different from comedians. They're rude - at the least the ones I know. They're so self-assured."

    Brand told Comingsoon.net: "I didn't ransack the biography of my musical chums. I felt that would sort of be like grave robbing. I did lots of characteristics and traits from some musicians I know like Morrissey or Noel Gallagher for example."

    In February, director Nick Stoller told Hitfix that Carl Barat has written songs for the project, which are likely to be sung by Brand fronting the fictional Infant Sorrow. Jarvis Cocker has also contributed three songs.

    P. Diddy, Metallica's Lars Ulrich, Christina Aguilera and Brand's girlfriend Katy Perry all appear in the film.

      From the Oasis Audio Vault: Strange Thing (1993 Demo)



    Strange Thing was a song included on 'Live Demonstration', a demo tape made by British rock band Oasis in 1993, prior to their rise to fame. The tape helped secure a recording contract with Creation Records, with most of the tracks ending up on the band's first batch of releases, including their debut album, Definitely Maybe.

    In 1992, Oasis were an up-and-coming live act in Manchester, with a small following, but no signs of a record contract. Realising their potential, Oasis guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher contacted Tony Griffiths of the Liverpool band The Real People. The two had met on a North American tour with the Inspiral Carpets, on which The Real People had been the opening act and Gallagher had worked as a roadie. Gallagher asked him if Oasis could use their studio to produce a professional sounding demo which they could then send to record companies. Griffiths and his brother Chris claim to have taught the band a lot about recording songs during that period. Around a dozen songs were recorded at the studio at Dock Road, Liverpool in Spring 1993, of which six songs ended up on the final demo tape. The versions of "D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?" and "Married With Children" were recorded at the home of co-producer Mark Coyle.
    Back of an original Live Demonstration cassette

    It is estimated that 10 cassette copies were sent out with a J-card insert depicting a swirling Union Jack and the now famous Oasis logo designed by Tony French. More cassettes were handed out without the picture sleeve, but with instead, a handwritten set of notes.

    In May 1993, the band were invited to play a gig at the famous Glasgow nightclub King Tut's, by a band who shared their rehearsal rooms. Oasis found the money to hire a van and make the six-hour journey to Glasgow. Among the people at the club that night was head of Creation Records, Alan McGee, who knew some of the other acts playing. Upon seeing Oasis for the first time, he was apparently so impressed that after the show, he went up to the band and offered them a record deal on the spot. A copy of the demo tape was handed to McGee that night, of which the contents made McGee even more determined to sign up the band. A couple of months later, Oasis signed a 6-album deal with Creation Records.

    The strength of the tracks on Live Demonstration was proved by the fact that four of the tracks eventually ended up on Definitely Maybe; ("Married With Children", "Rock 'N' Roll Star", "Bring It On Down" and "Columbia"), with three others appearing as b-sides ("D'Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman?", "Fade Away" and "Cloudburst"). The other song, "Strange Thing", has never had a commercial release.

      Gibson’s Saturday Night Special: Oasis Definitely Maybe


    “Is it my imagination, or have we finally found something worth living for?”

    Yes, we have, Liam Gallagher. Yes, we have.

    In 1994, England was ready to shake off years of bleak Conservative rule and spotty native Anglo music to throw the party to end all parties. Certainly the Stone Roses, Suede and Blur brought kids to the house, but Oasis was the guy who commandeered the stereo, smashed the front window and whipped a Carlsberg can at the poor officer responding to the scene.

    Supersonic, indeed.

    Definitely Maybe lit the island country and the world (fair enough, not so much America) on fire. The fastest-selling debut album of all time in the UK, Definitely Maybe mobilized hooligans and hairdressers alike. That summer, the whole of England was ordering gin and tonics and lifting two fingers to the establishment because tonight — TONIGHT I’M A BLOODY ROCK ‘N’ ROLL STAR!

    That very invocation to anarchy and idolatry kicks off the album, with songwriter-guitarist-sibling foil Noel Gallagher bending the G-string on his trademark ES-335 mercilessly before pick-sliding into a fifth-gear riff that never lets up. If ever there was a song to kick the door in for a band, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star” was it.

    “Shakermaker” follows, oddly enough, with a melody pinched from a hippie Coke commercial. But the lyrics — featuring a Manchester music shop name-check and the first post-Beatles utterance of the word “plasticine” — root the album in a uniquely British context, no less Anglocentric than “Waterloo Sunset” or “Penny Lane.”

    The frivolity of “Shakermaker” only greatens the impact of the track that follows; “Live Forever” stands as one of rock’s all-time great anthems. Soaring, reverb-drenched guitars bathe painstakingly sincere lyrics, beckoning “Maybe you’re the same as me/We see things they’ll never see/You and I are gonna live forever.” A mere three songs into his debut album, Noel Gallagher had already joined John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend and Ray Davies in the rarified air of the English songwriting elite.

    “Up in the Sky” ironically returns the album to earth, sending it back into head-bobbing rock mode, with the propulsive march of “Columbia” following close behind.

    Then, after much-baited tension and anticipation, the album reengages the fiery rock of its opener with perhaps the heaviest one-two-three punch of boozing, brawling anthems ever queued: “Supersonic,” “Bring It on Down” and “Cigarettes and Alcohol.”

    “Supersonic” encapsulates the stagger of a late-night bender, with lyrics wildly careening from autograph requests to bartender summons. Even as they spill over into the ridiculous (“I know a girl called Elsa/She’s into Alka Seltzer”…huh?), the unrelenting momentum of Gallagher and rhythm guitarist Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs steers the song headlong into rock and roll oblivion.

    From there, the only place to go is…harder, faster…with “Bring It on Down.” If ever a song sneered up from the gutters and challenged you to a fight, it was this one. Even oft-ridiculed drummer Tony McCarroll couldn’t hold back the sheer force of this guitar-overdriven juggernaut. “You’re the outcast/You’re the underclass/But you don’t care/Because you’re living fast.” Liam Gallagher’s Lennon/Rotten hybrid sneer has never dripped with so much venom.

    And then comes, perhaps, the greatest drinking anthem of all time, “Cigarettes and Alcohol.” When there are no jobs and no prospects, this is as good as it gets. “Is it worth the aggravation/To find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for?/It's a crazy situation/But all I need are cigarettes and alcohol!” For kids on the dole from years of Thatcherism aftershocks, this was their song. This was their life.

    The silly, lasagna-themed vignette, “Digsy’s Dinner,” cleanses the palette (if you’ll forgive the pun), before the band launches into the final epic track (though not the final track) on an epic-track-laden album: “Slide Away.” The unbridled passion of “Live Forever” spreads its wings once more for this paean to teenage love, when the heart most recklessly tumbles headlong into nothingness. Brother Noel claims he wrote the song with a Les Paul given to him by Smiths guitar god Johnny Marr and has often referred to it as Liam’s, if not the band’s, finest moment.

    Definitely Maybe closes, curiously, with the warm, playful acoustic number, “Married with Children,” almost a musical acknowledgement that everyone who has hurtled through this relentless, white-knuckle gauntlet deserves a quiet smoke before heading off into the night.

    So closes the album that NME readers recently voted “the best of all time,” with The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band finishing second and Revolver third. Great as those albums were, they never got you drunk and stole your wallet. Cheeky album.

    Michael Wright/Gibson

      Liam Gallagher Interview

    Liam Gallagher isn’t ready to hang up his tambourine just yet, as ShortList’s Luke Edwards found out when he met the music world’s most outspoken icon

    Even through the heavy hotel door, the muffled Mancunian jabbering of Liam Gallagher is an intimidating sound. This is the man who has – between recording seven No 1 albums – fired a fire extinguisher at Paul Gascoigne and swung a cricket bat at his own brother. Suddenly, that question about monobrows we’ve got scrawled in our notebook doesn’t seem quite so clever. But, as we enter the large room, the atmosphere is surprisingly serene. Meeting our outstretched hand, the 37-year-old rock’n’roll legend, father and burgeoning fashion entrepreneur, who has just started his own clothing brand Pretty Green, greets us with an “All right, mate”.

    Across a 20-year career, the former Oasis frontman has done it all, from headlining Glastonbury to irking Peter Kay at the Brit Awards. But, of course, there is an elephant in the room that we can’t help but mention before we start…

    Was the recent conflict within Oasis a good thing?
    Oasis ran its course. We stepped over that fine line. People in the band grew up and went different ways. He [Noel] wanted to be a certain way and I wanted to be another. He wanted to chill a bit – our kid’s not rock’n’roll, mate… I am. I’m still going for it ’til the day I die, without a doubt.

    What would you do if you saw Noel?
    I don’t wanna see him. But if I see him, who knows what would happen? I’ll probably end up f*ckin’ leatherin’ him.

    Noel seems like he is mates with Russell Brand now…
    They’re a f*cking match. Who do they remind me of? You remember that old politician, the weird little b*stard with the wife that were dead tall… Neil Hamilton! That’s who they look like.

    What did you think of Blur reforming?
    Them gigs weren’t as good as our gigs. No way. But, they’re all right. They’re in it for the money, aren’t they? The f*ckers. You won’t catch Oasis reforming, y’know. Never.

    Do you maintain your own Twitter account or get someone to do it for you?
    [Stands] I do it when people get f*ckin’ fresh, then I hit them, big time. It’s like a weapon, know what I mean? Just shuts a few people up. [Sits] But I don’t go, “Hey, I’ve just had a biscuit,” or, “Just tied my f*ckin’ shoe lace,” or, “I’ve just had my ninth sh*t of the day.” It’s f*ckin’ ridiculous.

    Have you got anything else to say to Peter Kay [who insulted Liam at this year’s Brit Awards]?
    [Stands again] On that subject [shouts], which is what I should have said on that f*ckin’ Twitter is, “Talking of knob, have you seen yours lately, you f*ckin’ fat c*nt?” Know what I mean? Bet he ain’t seen his for years, has he? But no, f*ck him, that is one c*nt who would get decked if I saw him on the street, believe you me.

    You’re a Catholic man – do you believe in forgiveness, or God for that matter?
    I’m pretty Zen-like. I believe in f*ckin’ feeling good and feeling positive and all that, and letting things go. Saying that, I’ve just said I’m gonna bite f*ckin’ Peter Kay’s head off when I see him next…

    Do illegal music downloaders bother you?
    Downloading’s the same as what I used to do – I used to tape the charts of the songs I liked [off the radio]. I don’t mind it. I hate all these big, silly rock stars who moan – at least they’re f*ckin’ downloading your music, you c*nt, and paying attention, know what I mean? You should f*ckin’ appreciate that – what are you moaning about? You’ve got f*ckin’ five big houses, so shut up.

    When are you going to start touring with the new band?
    Towards the end of this year. The album is written, we’re recording it in April for three weeks then we have a break, then go back in for another four weeks and it’ll be done by June. But it won’t be coming out ’til next year ’cos we’ve got some Oasis sh*t coming out later in the year. But we’re pushing to have a single out in October – so hopefully do some gigs around then.

    What’s been the inspiration for the album?
    Same as before. Just annihilating sh*t music. There’s enough inspiration out there, just looking at all these other sh*t bands. People are gonna be surprised, it’s a lot more musical than Oasis.

    Which are the best and worst bands right now?
    The best bands have gotta be Kasabian, the Arctic Monkeys are all right… that’s about it really. The worst? Oh, all that shit, Bloc Party – I don’t even know the names, just all that indie shit. People who don’t believe, who are just getting a little career out of it so they can go to the pub with a mate and go [puts on a feminine voice], “Oooh, I’ve been on Top Of The Pops.” It ain’t about that.

    You have expressed an interest in working with Jay-Z and he feels the same way. What’s stopping it?
    If he wants to do a tune with me and he rings me, and I don’t have to do that much and he wants to put my voice on a tune that I like, then, y’know, I’ll do it – but you wouldn’t catch me rapping or anything.

    Are you still on the drink and drugs?
    Not as much, but if we’re going out for a drink I’ll be the last f*ckin’ one standing mate – I know how to put it away, know what I mean? I don’t do it as much as I used to, but when I go, I f*ckin’ go. Start off with a lager, then get bored of that and hit the tequilas… then that’s it. Not into ales and all that – it’s f*ckin’ Peter Kay tackle that, i’n’t it? Dart-player nonsense. Let’s talk about your new clothing label, Pretty Green – how far back does your love of fashion go?
    I wouldn’t say I’m into fashion, know what I mean? It’s just things that look good. I weren’t going round town going, “Oh, look at that material there, that looks good.” We just got on with it. And when the Manchester scene blew up with all the band, I got a bit more involved.

    The general election is coming up – who will you vote for?
    I’m not telling you. Doesn’t matter who you f*ckin’ vote for – it’ll still be sh*t unless you join a band.

      Liam Gallagher: 'Noel And Russell Brand Are Like Neil And Christine Hamilton'

    He slams their friendship...

    Liam Gallagher has compared his brother Noel's friendship with Russell Brand to the relationship between Neil and Christine Hamilton.

    The pair have developed a close bond in recent years after Noel made a series of regular appearances on Brand's former BBC 6 Music radio show.

    In an interview with Shortlist, Liam said his brother and Brand, who also co-hosted a one-off show on Talk Sport last year, were a “fucking match”.

    “Who do they remind me of? You remember that old politician, the weird little bastard with the wife that were dead tall...Neil Hamilton!" he said.

    “That's who they look like.”

    As previously reported on Gigwise, Liam also used the interview to discuss Oasis' demise last summer – and insisted they would “never” reform.

    He also claimed he would “probably end up fuckin' leatherin'” his brother if they came face to face.

    Liam is currently working on his debut solo album, which he said was due to be released next year.

      Time Flies Artwork Info



    There have been so many iconic gigs throughout the history of Oasis. From Maine Road, Wembley Stadium (both new and old!), Madison Square Gardens to River Plate Stadium in Argentina, to name a very small handful.

    But we think most people will agree that the most iconic of them all was their record-breaking weekend at Knebworth. 2.5 million people applied for the available 250,000 tickets for those two sunny days back in August 1996 .

    So it’s fitting that the front cover of the sleeve for the upcoming singles collection features a stellar shot of you the fans from those historic gigs at Knebworth.


    'Time Flies... 1994-2009' is the forthcoming complete singles collection by Oasis and is released 14th June. More more info, click HERE!

      Noel Gallagher Writing Songs Again

    Noel Gallagher was a guest on the Sports Bar again last night (4 April)

    Some excerpts:

    What he has been up to: ate loads of chocolate today, went to see Arsenal v Barcelona on Wednesday as a neutral as “I don’t mind Arsenal”, and as a guest of “some company, I don’t know” and he enjoyed watching the boxing.

    Andy Goldstein asked, now you have done the Royal Albert Hall, is that it for gigging at the moment?

    Noel: “Yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s it.”

    Following Noel’s comment last Sunday that he collects sunglasses, they invited listeners to send in some for Noel:

    Football: his thoughts on the forthcoming Manchester derby, “It goes like this, if Rooney plays, they’ll win, if Rooney doesn’t play, we’ll win.”, he was pretty critical of Man U, “It shines a light on what actually you really are without Rooney, which is quite average, innit.” and reckons it is Chelsea’s title to throw away now, was positive and complimentary about Man City, especially Adam Johnson (and nothing negative about Mancini at all!) and that he’s going to go to the City v United, Tottenham and West Ham games.

    Carrying out Ricky Hatton’s belt in Las Vegas:

    “It was quite nerve wracking, do you know what I mean? I don’t know why, you know... It was the first time I’d been in a ring with our kid and I thought, ‘I might as well just knock him out while I’m here!’” “You go in Ricky’s dressing room and there’s about 30 people in there, who all look like they’re car thieves, from Manchester, and he’s got Oasis on his ghetto blaster and he doesn’t really say much but he kinda runs around and does a bit of shadow boxing and you’re thinking, ‘Is he gonna lamp me here in a minute, or what?’, but he’s kinda focussed and intense but I was out with him the other night, he was down at the Royal Albert Hall gig and he’s kinda, he’s two different people, when you see him before a fight and he’s like, you know, he looks like he’ll rip your head off and the other night he was down at the gig and he was like, wow, born athlete.“

    Plans for this week:

    Noel: “I probably might try and write a song.”

    Is it more difficult to write a song now that you’ve got a nice big house and a stable lifestyle?

    Noel: “Yes it is..... Cause I just think, ‘What’s the point?’”

    I’ve written a few, do you want help?

    Noel: “Anybody can write songs, the trick is writing good ones. It’s a fine line between genius and idiocy, and you’re coming down on the other side...”

    Do you want to write a little tune for the Sports Bar?

    Noel: “No.”

    Thanks to Dougie/SCYHO

      Noel Gallagher Thinks Mancini should be sacked

    Roberto Mancini will look back in anger after Noel Gallagher said he should be sacked as Mancheser City manager.

    Rock star Noel, doesn't even fancy City's chances it they make the Champions League, even after Mancini and his Eastlands side hammered Wigan 301 at the start of the week.

    He said: "From what I saw on Monday, if we get on the Champions league next season with that team we'll get murdered.

    "We got Carlos Tevez and three or four great players.

    "I don't think we're 70 percent of the way to being the finished article yet and I think we need a great boss.

      Bonehead Talks Vortex, Oasis - Present and Future


    Our friends at SCYHO caught up with Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs, founder member and former guitarist with Oasis, who has is about to start a UK and European tour with Manchester’s most talked-about new band, The Vortex. The band and are currently recording their debut album with Bonehead on production duties. He chatted at length about his past, present and future.

    Interview excerpt:

    What is your favourite Oasis song since you left the band?



    Since I left, mmmmm that's a hard one ain't it, cause if I say a Noel song Liam will get the hump, and if I say a Liam one Noel will get the hump. so none of them, they’re all a bag of shit. I tell you what, I really love 'Mucky Fingers', I really love that one and that fucking Liam one 'I'm Outta Time', I absolutely love that one. I just love everything they do, I'm still the world’s number one Oasis fan, it's hard when people say, I don't like that, I say fuck off, I love it but I do.

    I do love 'Mucky Fingers' and I don't know why. It's something about it, it has a real 'Velvet Underground' feel to it. There’s something about that song that I love. But 'I'm Outta Time' I really love.



    I like hearing Liam and always look forward to listening to Liam's new stuff , I feel proud for him as he's come from 'Little James' to 'Im Outta Time' and you can just see Liam writing songs that he never did. I just sort of feel really proud for him when I hear 'Im Outta Time', for the first time it was a real proud moment for me and for Liam. It's a really, really nice song, I love it.


    What was the real reason of you walking out of the recording for "Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants"? There are so many rumours......


    There’s millions of rumours, loads of rumours... Legally you don't leave Oasis overnight, you don't wake up one morning and think “I'm walking, I'm going”, it just doesn't happen. There were lots of reasons but the main reason was, for me personally was there was a definite spark to that band. When we first came out in 1994 to sign that deal we were just five lads of the street, there was a real sort of energy in that band. A lot happened very fast and we reached a great height very fast, by the time we came to record 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' we were all living and rented this big chateau in the south of France that belonged to Christian Dior.


    And we set up a studio in there on our own, and we started recording an album there. It had a swimming pool, we were driving big sports cars, you know, we had the world at our feet. To reach that stage then you should be having so much fun, and that should have been so much fun and for me personally there was no fun there and that spark has gone. The original spark didn't feel like it was there, it really didn't. I don't know it had just gone.


    I'm not saying I didn't enjoy being there, but it was just a feeling that had gone on over time with me. And I did a lot of serious thinking, and that sort of nailed it for me. And I just thought, that's it for me, the old gang thing had gone for me and it does not feel right. And if I had carried on and finished that session and then gone on and done a two year world tour to promote it I would not have been giving 100% to the band and the fans. And I have said it before you can't be in a band like 'Oasis' or you can’t be in 'Oasis' full stop if you're not giving 100%.


    Now, I could have finished the album, I could have gone out on tour but I would have been giving 90% and that's not good enough, you got to be giving your all. So I would have been lying to the band, lying to the fans. I'd have been lying to myself and that's what really made me make my decision. I just thought I can’t go on with this, to sort of kid people I'm giving my all when I won't be so I just made my decision, that was the main reason.


    It's not an easy decision, believe me, but I had to do it. But once I made it there was no going back. I was set... I certainly don't regret one minute of what I did in Oasis, absolutely not. I look back and think proudest/best moments of my life ever. But I could not carry on by not giving 100%, I just couldn't do it. I mean the truth be told, I think when we did Knebworth that was such a massive thing to reach in such a short space of time. And I have said it before and I will say it again, I think we should have done Knebworth and on that second night we should have all taken a bow and said, thank you and good night, we were Oasis.


    We should have bowed out but we didn't, we carried on, it was a bit of a struggle after Knebworth, fucking hell. To go over to America and play to a few thousand people, when you just played to a quarter of a million. I think we reached that point and more that we ever dreamed we could have reached. I think we should have bowed out after Knebworth, but then again, I think the band did pick up after I left.


    After I left I think they got better, got better, got better, then, unfortunately they split. But I do think they were progressing back to their roots as it were.

      The Making of Noel Gallagher


    Many of you, I'm sure, have figured out that our Noel Gallagher sculpture story was an April Fools Day joke. All you Manchester City fans can calm down - MUSCUSA was never paid a $250 ransom. However, the beautiful sculpture does exist and was created by New York 3D illustration artist Liz Lomax. Check out here world renown work at lizlomax.com!

    This time lapse video shows a behind the scenes look at the making of Noel:

      Oasis single collection 'Time Flies’ in stores in June

    “Oasis will become the premier gilt-edged rock ‘n’ rollers of the age; they will irreversibly change the way you walk and talk, the way you dress… the future’s assured. The past is gone. This is now. Listen. That’s the story.” (NME 1995)

    “I consider Noel to be the finest songwriter of his generation.” (George Martin)

    ‘Time Flies’ is the complete singles collection celebrating the work of Oasis from start to finish. Released on 14th June through Big Brother Recordings, the songs that comprise this album span fifteen glorious years walked tall alongside a staggering seven consecutive number one albums. 1994’s ‘Definitely Maybe’, 1995’s ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’, 1997’s ‘Be Here Now’, 2000’s ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants’, 2002’s ‘Heathen Chemistry’, 2005’s ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’ and their last from 2008, ‘Dig Out Your Soul’. Starting with their irresistible debut, ‘Supersonic’ and finishing with their very last release, ‘Falling Down’, the album features all 26 singles - 23 Top Tens including 8 No.1's. A deluxe version of ‘Time Flies’ features all 36 videos ever made (all previously unreleased) including versions made for the UK and America, as well as the last ever recorded Oasis live show from The Roundhouse in London on the 21st July 2009.

    April 1994 it begins. Effortlessly, the classic singles, ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Shakermaker’ provided a tangible feeling that something was happening; then came ‘Live Forever’, where we saw a young Liam Gallagher nailed to a chair in that bizarre video and somehow the notion that one of ours could again excite, incite and not to mention, sell millions of records was very real. They virtually reignited an ailing industry and revitalised the global music scene. They did this by becoming “the most complete pop group on the planet”. They knew it too; as Noel Gallagher, the band’s principal songwriter, simply explained, “We’re not arrogant, we just believe we’re the greatest band in the World.” His younger brother who went on to become one of the ‘greatest frontmen of all time’, once remarked, “There’s Elvis and me. I couldn’t say which of the two is best.” Oasis owned attitude, and noise and confusion often followed. Early on, Noel said, “All I know is that the gigs are selling out and we’re probably gonna get in loads more trouble on this tour…”

    It was this kind of self belief and ambition that flung the world open to Oasis. From their landmark 'arrival' performance at T in the Park in 1994 to the now legendary gigs at Maine Road, a weekend of history-making at Knebworth, world famous venues that included sell out shows at Madison Square Gardens and the Hollywood Bowl, and stadiums from Wembley to River Plate, Argentina and beyond, as well as just about every single festival here and abroad, Oasis rapidly grew but never lost their high cool. How many bands manage that - and why? Undoubtedly, millions identified, aspired, shared the dream of the boys from Burnage making very, very good. Their outspokenness and the very real relationship of Noel and Liam kept us enthralled and amused. At times, it provided real drama, but nevertheless the humanity shone through more often than not.

    So what is there left to say about the greatest rock 'n' roll band of our time? These could be the best days of our lives. And they were. And they still are. Oasis entertained on every level. At every concert tens of thousands united to sing along to, be moved by, be energised by and reminisce with this incredible set list - a definitive chronicle of a generation, national anthems, a series of musical lunar landings. Remember whose eyes you were looking into when you first heard ‘Wonderwall’? Who had their arm around you during ‘Don't Look Back In Anger’? Who did you steal a glance from during ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’? Mosh with to 'Lyla'? Who did you want to ‘Live Forever’ with? And why did it all work so well, for so long, all around the world, for so many people? For a time, they did change the way we walked, we talked, the way we dressed. For Oasis it was always so simple. Liam Gallagher comments, “I’m totally proud of everything we’ve done… I liked the crazy times and the not so crazy, I liked it all, man.” And Noel Gallagher sums it up by saying, “The fact that we kept it together for so long is testament to our love of the music. It’s from the heart.”

      Noel Gallagher Sculpture Held For Ransom


    Someone stole a sculpture of Ex Oasis singer Noel Gallagher from New York City's Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Annex it was reported this week.

    The Rock N Roll Annex closed its doors to the public in January but still keeps a large storage floor full of Rock N Roll memorabilia at its old location, which is maintained by their headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.

    A security officer, on his routine daily check , discovered a door ajar and unlocked and what appeared to be a ransom note on the shelf where the sculpture was kept. It was scribbled on the back of the photo (pictured) and read: "The chief is in safe hands. Send $250 to MUSCUSA public relations office by Sunday, or else...The 3 Manu-teers."
    The Soho police station is now treating this as larceny and extortion after the Hall of Fame main office forwarded them a cell phone photo it received. In it, the sculpture appears to be in good condition and kept at an undisclosed location.


    NYPD  Police Captain Eddie M. said his officers were investigating the theft and added: "This was the first incidence of theft at that property. “It’s been pretty safe there,” As far as suspects, he said he had no idea who would’ve stolen the sculpture. “Perhaps some , you know... them hooligans” he said.
