      Alan McGee Went Out Looking For Women And Found Oasis

    Alan McGee has been recalling the moment he discovered Oasis in 1993, Alan told californiachronicle.com: "It was a complete fluke. Because I was single, I was always on the lookout for women.

    "My sister was trying to hook me up with one of her mates who was doing a bit of modelling.

    "I was on the chase so I went to King Tut's in Glasgow but she didn't show up.

    "Oasis did show up and they were good. But it wasn't until they covered I Am The Walrus by The Beatles that I realised how good they were.

    "I went up to Noel Gallagher and asked if he wanted a deal.

    "He said: 'Who with?' I said Creation and we shook on it."

    Alan hoped the Manchester band would sell 100,000 copies of their debut album, Definitely Maybe, earning gold certification.

    His estimate was a little bit out. The album sold 12million and Oasis went on to become the most successful band of the Nineties, selling 70 million records worldwide.

      Interview with Brian Cannon @ Microdot - At The Forefront of British Rock n Roll



    Via our friends at ZANI

    Unbridled access to two of the country's biggest bands, a work ethic unmatched and a walk-the-walk rock 'n' roll attitude, Brian Cannon acted as Artistic Director for a number of projects with both Oasis and The Verve. He has also created work for a number of world-wide brands such as Converse and Levi's®. His company, Microdot, has just celebrated its twenty-year anniversary at the forefront of British Rock 'n' Roll. To celebrate Brian's work and his achievements, I put some questions to Brian.

    ZANI - Tell me about your youth and about growing up in Wigan – what did you spend your time doing? You’re a Wigan fan aren’t you?

    Brian Cannon - Growing up in Wigan was cool. When I was young, I had nothing to compare it to, but I was happy enough. It was close enough to both Liverpool and Manchester to visit when I started buying records. There has been a good music scene in Wigan since the early Seventies and The Casino, so growing and and being into music was good in Wigan. Yes, I do support Wigan Athletic. I have supported them since the non League days, so following the club now is special (if erratic.).

    ZANI - Was it always photography that appealed to you? Or did you start with art and drawing, etc?

    Brian Cannon - I got turned onto drawing as a small child by my dad; he was an amazing illustrator, but not a professional. He’s retired now, but he previously worked in a coal mine. He encouraged me, as did my mother.

    ZANI - Who inspired you to do what you do, and can you remember the exact moment when you realised, “This is it. This is what I want to do”?

    Brian Cannon - I got into punk, like a lot of working class kids I knew, when The Sex Pistols broke. I didn’t have the patience to learn guitar but I thought I really want to get involved with music, so I decided to use my talent for art and concentrate on producing music-related imagery. So, in a nutshell, punk-rock – and in particular, The Sex Pistols – was my inspiration.

    ZANI - I presume you had posters in your bedroom when you were growing up? Who were they of?

    Brian Cannon - Punk stuff: The Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks...

    ZANI - You started Microdot after finishing University in 1989. When you first started, what hopes and expectations did you have?

    Brian Cannon - I set out to create the best sleeves for the best bands around, something I think I pretty much achieved.

    ZANI - Did your parents think you were mad?

    Brian Cannon - My parents fully supported me, if not totally understanding what I was doing.

    ZANI - When was your first major break, Brian?

    Brian Cannon - It came as early as in 1984. I got into the early Electro and Hip Hop. Again, I used my artistic talents and started doing large-scale New York-style graffiti murals in Wigan. The top Electro DJ in the UK at the time was a guy called Greg Wilson – he saw one of my pieces and I was summoned to meet him. He told me that he was expecting to see the American graffiti style in the UK sooner or later, but not in Wigan.. We got on well and he was setting up a small independent dance label in Liverpool for which I did all the graphics while still at college – my first professional work. On leaving Leeds Poly with my degree, he asked me to design record sleeves for The Ruthless Rap Assassins who he managed and who were signed to EMI. So to sum up, it all began with me vandalising a warehouse wall in Wigan in November 1984..

    ZANI - Tell me how you met The Verve ?

    Brian Cannon - I first met Richard (Ashcroft) at a party in Wigan in 1989; he was a 17-year-old student at the time who I had nothing in common with it seemed: he was wearing a floppy hat with flowers on it and I was 23 at the time, dressing in Adidas trainers. We got talking and he found out that I was just starting out and designed record sleeves – he found that interesting as he was just starting out with his band. I didn’t see him again for another two years when I bumped into him at a petrol station at six in the morning buying a pint of milk... He recognised me, told me his band (Verve as they were known then) had been signed and that he wanted me to design their covers.. Stroke of luck...

    ZANI - Didn’t you go on tour with them? What is your lasting moment being in the “Verve bubble”?

    Brian Cannon - I went on tour with The Verve A LOT. I’ve seen them play over a hundred times. The best times were, as with most bands, when they first started to get a following nationally – turning up in a city where you don’t know anyone and there being a couple of hundred kids who are into the band. My lasting memory was from the Gravity Grave tour of 1992; I was the only member of the posse over 25 for the sake of the insurance to drive the tour bus – a Volkswagen LT 35. In the evening, we drove into Edinburgh and could see the city in the distance, while the band in the back were watching Rolling Stones videos. It was something else.

    ZANI - Some of The Verve’s artwork is outstanding – was it a collaborative effort? Or were you just left to produce the pieces for approval?

    Brian Cannon - In each case I had a chat with Richard, sometimes he would have specific ideas but, on the whole, it was left to me and the ideas were mine.



    ZANI - How did you get involved with Oasis?

    Brian Cannon - Noel asked me to do the Oasis artwork after he saw the early Verve sleeves.

    ZANI - What was your impression of Creation Records?

    Brian Cannon - Creation was a one off, coupled with the fact that I was working with Oasis, I have never had so much creative freedom with a label. They just let me get on with it and then paid the bills... couldn’t fault them really.

    ZANI - Some of the covers you did including the Oasis single Some Might Say relayed the lyrics to the song within the artwork. Do you always listen to a song before you decide on the angle of the work, or do you just get ideas?

    Brian Cannon - I find it astonishing that people actually design covers before, or not even listening to, the record at all. I think it’s impossible to do a good job that way. I am charged with the responsibility of ‘dressing’ a piece of music so I ALWAYS listened to the track(s) as much as possible and got my head around the lyrics too.

    ZANI - You toured with Oasis back in 1993 for 12 months, just before they took off. It must have been something special to be “in the eye of the hurricane”: what can you remember from the period...if anything?

    Brian Cannon - I remember it being very exciting. The band themselves were absolutely bang into it. I can’t stand po-faced bands who think the world owes them a living and that rock 'n' roll lifestyle is the norm. Bonehead used to be a plasterer before the band took off and he, more than the rest, never forgot what he might otherwise be doing: it was a full on fun time.

    ZANI - Is it true that you and Liam once offered out a whole pub?

    Brian Cannon - I can’t confirm that either way, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    ZANI - You were there during the short, but hectic, recording session for (What The Story) Morning Glory?, in which (rumour has it) Noel hit Liam with a cricket bat after he brought back the whole pub to the studio. Is it true that you locked yourself in your room as all hell broke loose?

    Brian Cannon - Totally. It was between the two of them and there was NOTHING anyone could do to diffuse the situation. I just went to my room, had a beer and waited for the whole thing to die down.

    ZANI - Tell me about the shoot for the Wonderwall cover – wasn’t the girl in the picture-frame an employee from Creation?

    Brian Cannon - We originally shot the sleeve with Liam depicted through the frame (an idea I nicked from the paintings of Belgian surrealist painter, Rene Magritte). Mid-shoot, and I am totally serious about this, Noel just happened to be passing in a taxi. I mean, talk about a coincidence. We were shooting on Primrose Hill, London, and Noel Gallagher by chance drove past.. He obviously did not get the message I had sent to his manager about the session. The taxi screeched to a halt, and, much to everyone’s amazement, an irate Noel jumped out, called a halt to the proceedings stating that it had to be a girl in the shot. This totally put me on the back foot as the artwork was due to be delivered in a few days. Primrose Hill was a few hundred yards from the Creation Records office at the time; we called upon Anita Heryet who worked there, and that’s how she became the cover star.

    ZANI - Do you think it’s fair to say you held the sixth Oasis member tag for a while? Weren’t you also part of the group that added hand claps to All Around The World at Air Studios?

    Brian Cannon - I dunno about the sixth member thing, but I was part of the ‘inner circle’. You have to understand, I had known them before they were massive and when they finally became big many people tried to befriend them and leak stories to the press. They knew myself and all the Microdot guys could be trusted. Liam would turn up at my flat in Camden at tea time on a Friday night and get hammered all weekend with us lot knowing that nothing would appear in the papers. I did do handclaps on All Around The World, and I also played keyboards on the title track to What’s The Story? A little known fact.

    ZANI - Was that a “pinch me” moment?

    Brian Cannon - The whole Oasis thing was a pinch me moment.

    ZANI - Would you mind sharing the story of when you and Dave Halliwell pitched the one-off 1996 Oasis magazine to a certain publisher? (Only if you want to of course, I read about it on your Facebook page, it sounds funny)

    Brian Cannon - I pitched the idea of an official Oasis magazine to Noel and Oasis manager Marcus Russell as a counter to all the garbage that was being written in the press about them at the time. They gave me the green light to publish it. I was Editor and Art Director on the project, Dave Halliwell (who was The Verve’s first manager) was Business Manager. The magazine industry works on the following premise – you only get paid once a magazine has physically sold over the counter and then you can only expect 50 per cent of the cover price. We had a cover price of £3.50 and managed to convince the Virgin Megastore Group to take the mag on an exclusive basis if they gave us £3 per copy and paid us upfront... Dave and I left the meeting at their office with a cheque for 30 grand and we hadn’t even had the magazines printed by then...

    ZANI - Do you still stay in contact with any of the band members you worked with in the bad old days?

    Brian Cannon - A few of them yes.

      Noel Gallagher, Carl Barat and Guy Ritchie at Russel Brand's Stage Party

    Russell Brand celebrated his final days of freedom last night during his stag party but instead of thinking of an original plan he merely had dinner at the pub before heading to Stringfellows.

    Jonathan Ross, Noel Gallagher, Guy Ritchie and The Libertines’ Carl Barat were among his guests and even Peter Stringfellow himself showed up to wish Brand all the best.

    The lads started their day with watching his team-of-choice West Ham United beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Upton Park along with David Walliams, Noel Gallagher and David Baddiel.

    The 35-year-old and his pals then carried on to the York and Albany gastro pub in Regents Park and stayed there for several hours eating and drinking.

    Once the boys had satisfied their cravings at the pub, they moved onto Peter Stringfellow’s Angels table dancing club in central London, where they were greeted personally by Mr Stringfellow

    After doing what boys do at the club, they finally left at 1:45am and returned to their north London hotel.

    But they didn’t just jump in any old taxi, the group had hired a special bus that they could all ride, which took them back to the hotel to end the night.

    Carl Barat was said to be in the worst shape by the end of the night, but soon-to-be married Brand actually looked quite sombre considering it was his do.

    Brand clearly enjoyed his party though and later tweeted: ‘Wes Ham beat Spurs and [Peter] Stringfellow just told me to ‘do what you like’; truly I am the Duke of Essex.’

    The British comedian hid under a pair of large aviator sunglasses and sported his usual skinny black jeans, leather jacket and a silver boots.

    While his former BBC pal Jonathan Ross decided to dress formally for the occasion in a grey tweed suit.

    Brand’s party followed his fiancée Katy Perry’s recent hen party which was thrown by Rihanna.

    The Teenage Dream singer decided to have her bash at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where she arrived in a stretch Hummer Limo and was joined by 25 friends for the event.

      Club 100 London Venue Closing? Home to Famous Oasis , Pistols and Clash Gigs.

    The famous London venue the 100 Club, which has been treated to performances by countless acts including Bob Dylan, Oasis, The Clash, David Bowie and the Sex Pistols over the years, is being faced with closure after a large raise in rent costs.

    The London Evening Standard reports the current owner Jeff Horton has said the club, which is situated in London’s Oxford Street and was once described Aerosmith’s Joe Perry as ‘the finest rock n roll club in the world’, could now close ‘within months’ unless a new buyer is found due to soaring overheads which are stretching to £4,000 a month.


    Check out the 1994 Oasis gig reviewed at Club 100 with a special Digsy's Dinner audio recording!

      Brandon Flowers on Meeting Oasis: "I'm One of the Lucky Ones"

    The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has paid tribute to Oasis, who split last year.

    The singer told Shortlist magazine the Manchester band didn't need to reform because “they've already left their mark”.


    Flowers also said he had been “lucky” when meeting Oasis brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher in the past.

    “They've made some good music so that's good enough for me,” Flowers replied when asked if he hoped the band would ever reform.

    “I've met [Noel and Liam] and they've been kind to me. I'm one of the lucky ones.”

    Flowers is currently promoting his debut solo album 'Flamingo', which topped the UK album chart earlier this month.

      Brand and Ross Hoping To Reunite With Noel Gallagher On Air

    RUSSELL BRAND and JONATHAN ROSS will be together on the radio next month for the first time since Sachsgate.

    The pair will record a podcast live from Hackney, east London, for Absolute Radio.

    It's all part of the promotion for Russell's new Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal, which is on sale next week.

    And Russ is hoping to get most of the old team from his Radio 2 show back together for subsequent programmes.

    He said: "I'll be doing a series of podcasts and the first one will be with Jonathan. Then I'll be doing between five and ten with my old sidekick Matt Morgan.

    "I'm hoping to get NOEL GALLAGHER back on, too.

    "We'll record them at my live shows. We'll do some things backstage and then do the show.

    "It should be really good."

    Noel is one of the driving forces behind Russell's return to radio.

    Russ said: "Noel told me he would put the radio on top of the television and him and his missus SARA would listen together.

    "He said when it was gone, he missed it as a thing to listen to, and that's lovely."

      Oasis' Chart Record Broken By Lady Gaga

    Pop superstar Lady Gaga has surpassed Oasis’ record of 134 consecutive weeks on the UK charts, the Guinness World Records have announced.

      Mad For It , The Wit & Wisdom of the Brothers Gallagher - Win a Copy


    Live4ever  will be giving away two copies of this new book so read on how to win a copy for yourself!

    Associate editor at the NME Paul Stokes has for the first time ever archived two decades worth of Liam and Noel mouthing off at each other, the press, aliens or just who ever happened to be listening at the time, about everything, anything and anyone who needs a slap! In this compact collection of comical gems and thought provoking food for thought of uninhibited, darkly amusing and offensive social commentary on modern times, Liam and Noel set about putting the world to rights.

    Warning Kasabian’s Sergio Pizzorno about his pointy shoes, their disappointment in Jack White and his Coca Cola song, the warbling of Florence Welch, threatening certain porkpie hat wearing smackheads with a smack and begging Bono to just ‘sing one and shut the f*** up about Africa’.


    Leaving little a stone unturned, the Brothers take in everything from Britpop rivals, reality TV and the global financial crisis. There are also chances to read what the brothers have to say about the band, the music and taking lumps out of each other; Noel describing Liam as ‘rude, arrogant and lazy… the angriest man you’ll ever meet. He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup’ and Liam predicting in ’94 ‘we’ll be the most important band in the f****ing world. If time is on our side, and there’s not so much bad s***, and no one dies, we’ll be the new Beatles’.


    This is an absolute must for any Oasis fan where in a world when pop stars are air-brushed and ‘media-trained’ into identikit banality, these Mancunian motor-mouths resolutely refuse to shut up.

      Alan McGee Talks Creation Documentary 'Upside Down' and Oasis


    Misrepresented? Possibly. Machiavellian? Potentially. Maverick? Certainly. Alan McGee, former label boss of the hugely influential Creation Records, has been called all of the above and worse. Not that he gives a fuck. During the 80’s he propelled two musically inspired misanthropic brothers into the public consciousness in the form of The Jesus and Mary Chain. And just to show it wasn’t a fluke he did it again a decade later with the Gallaghers, when he signed Oasis. Throw Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub and a host of others into the already heady mix of bedlam and breakdowns and you have one hell of a story.

    ‘Upside Down’, premiering at next months London Film Festival charts it all; the deals, drugs and disenchantment of Creations unprecedented 15 year history. In an exclusive interview about Danny O'Connor's film Clash spoke to an amiable, amusing and always provacative Mr McGee.

    In similar sort of terms we run an independent magazine and we’ve done everything the way we thought we should do it and not necessarily the way that other people do it.I think the music business now is incredibly corporate. I’ll be honest,I’ve lost interest in music now really. The only things that interest me are Noel Gallagher and Glasgvegas, if you’re talking about current music. The demos of Noels new record are fucking amazing and James Allan I think is an incredible talent. And I’m interested in Liam’s new band and hear what he’s doing. They could maybe come up with something amazing. Who knows?

      Noel Gallagher and the Man City Player Brawl

    Manchester rockers Noel and Liam Gallagher love a good brawl.

    So we weren’t surprised to hear they’d had the mother of all fights with a horde of Man City players.

    Noel told us: “There was a mass brawl one night in the dressing room which involved Steve Lomas, Georgi Kinkladze and Terry Phelan at one of our gigs at Maine Road. It was absolutely mental.


    “Somebody insulted somebody’s wife. Next minute it was chaos, fists everywhere, with all these City players going mental.

    “Eventually it involved us. Well, it’d be rude not to get involved.”

    Chatting to us at the Manchester premiere of film Blue Moon Rising, a behind-the-scenes story of the club’s 2009/10 season, Noel, 43, continued: “No-one has quite got to the bottom of the argument. Neil Lennon was involved as well.”

    Just sounds like a typical man brawl to us, pointless in all aspects but fun to watch.

    Noel appears in the movie as one of City’s celebrity fans but admits he’d never become an actor full-time. “Needless to say I’d be brilliant at it,” he boasts. “But I like being a rock star.”

      Noel Gallagher Puts Solo Projects On Hold Till Later Next Year

    Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has told fans not to expect any solo material in the near future, following the band's split last year.

    Asked about his plans for new music, he replied: "I'm moving house and my missus is nine months pregnant so I'm not doing anything until well into next year.

    "I'll be doing nappies and all that malarkey."

    His brother and estranged bandmate Liam has announced a new band, Beady Eye.

    They are currently in the studio and are expected to release their debut album next year.

    Noel Gallagher played his first post-Oasis solo shows in March, but has not yet unveiled any new material.

    The singer and guitarist was speaking at the premiere of Blue Moon Rising, a documentary about his beloved football team Manchester City.

    Gallagher appears in the film, which follows seven die-hard City fans through the highs and lows of last season, and also features several Manchester City players and manager Roberto Mancini.

      Noel Gallagher Thinks It's Time for New Set Of Proper Rock Stars

    We love Noel Gallagher for many reasons, but mainly for just telling it like it is.

    The rock ’n’ roll legend thinks the new flow of music stars are too clean-cut and are ruining the raucous nature of showbiz.

    Ranting about well-behaved chart-toppers, the Oasis rocker, 42, condemned them as “dull”.


    Chatting at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards, Noel told us: “The showbiz scene is really boring these days, everyone’s so dull. The old days of wild partying seem to be a thing of the past.”

    And we have to agree. Party pioneers including Amy Winehouse, 26, Pete Doherty, 31, Russell Brand, 35, and Kate Moss, 36, are taking it easy after pickling their livers for many years.

    We need some new vodka-guzzlers to arrive and start a royal booze-up. However, the Manchester strummer is adamant things are set to go back to rock ’n roll revelry soon.

    “There will definitely be a new wave of coolness, it’s just a matter of time. You girls are just going to have to sit and wait for the Muppets to go by.

    “It’s about time a new set of proper rock stars came out.”

    Mr Gallagher has always been a notorious booze-hound but even he’s slowing things down, admitting: “My days of waking up with someone else’s chandelier in my bed are over. I’ve got kids now, I’m more chilled out.”

    Looking sharp in a camel blazer, Noel spent most of the night chewing the fat with cricketer Freddie Flintoff, 32, and muso Mark Ronson, 35, at the bash at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden.

    (photo: Live4ever)


    As his recent album ‘Wake Up The Nation‘ is set to learn it’s fate at tonight’s Mercury Music Prize ceremony, Paul Weller has revealed he is already close to completing it’s follow-up.

    Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper at Jersey Live!, Weller confirmed he had finished the bulk of the album over the course of four days, and outlined a more pop feel which is dominating the new material. “We’ve done about eight tracks over four days and they sound mega,” he said.

    Recently Noel Gallagher confirmed that he had been sitting in and drumming during some sessions with his pal.

      Beady Eye Members at Jim Jones Revue Gig in London

    Swan-diving into rock 'n' roll's primordial ooze, the Jim Jones Revue previewed their new album, 'Burning Your House Down,' with a combustible set that recalled the holler of Little Richard and the electric energy of the MC5 at intimate London club Madame Jojo's on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 2.

    The audience at the packed-out venue included band producer and Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos as well as former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher and his Beady Eye guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell.

    Displaying a ferocity and near gospel passion that's in all too short supply these days, the Jim Jones Revue are poised to break through to a wider audience as one rock 'n' roll salvo after another was fired with nary a thought for personal safety. While current single 'High Horse' gained the biggest cheers -- its presence on radio increasing on a daily basis -- it's the likes of 'Big Len,' 'Elemental' and 'Killing Spree' that delight long-time observers.

    The Jim Jones Revue sweat profusely and heartily. Refusing to stand still, Jones and band -- guitarist Rupert Orton, bassist Gavin Jay, keyboardist Elliot Mortimer and drummer Nick Jones -- wring every drop of energy from their own energy reserves and three-chord ramalama. Like it or not, they're here to save your soul.

      Liam Gallagher Attends Jim Jones Revue Album Launch Party

    The Mancunian wide boy, 37, visited one of Simon Cowell's favourite haunts, The Colony in Marylebone, with some scruffy mates.

    They didn't fancy anything on the menu and said they wanted builder's tea and bacon butties. The barman said they had Silver Needle Tea but no butties.

    An onlooker said: "Liam said it was 'f***ing expensive' and stomped out. ........"

    Liam, who later rocked and rolled at Madame Jojo's for the Jim Jones Revue, then went to the greasy spoon opposite and stuck up two fingers.

    Is that how many pence you've got on you, Liam?

      Phil Collins Surprised By Liam & Noel Gallagher's Comments



    Phil Collins clearly has his bêtes noires. 'I get a bit… surprised at the vitriol of [Noel and Liam] Gallagher and people like that who consider me the Antichrist of music.

    I don’t think I’ve done anything that bad,’ he says. In any case, the fact that the American hip-hop community has embraced him – his drum sounds and melodies are ripe for sampling or covering – helps balance things out.

    And the smash hit 2007 Cadbury’s 'drumming gorilla’ ad was a timely reminder of his adroit pop songwriting skills.
