      Noel Gallagher: Finest work is now behind him


    (Photo: Live4ever)

    ROCK superstars have died out because the music industry no longer makes them enough money, Noel Gallagher has claimed.

    The Oasis star, pictured above, feels artists such as Michael Jackson and Guns n’ Roses enjoyed the best years, benefitting from huge record company advances.
    Gallagher, 45, said his ­finest work was now behind him. He was at his most creative while pushing to make the Britpop band he formed with brother Liam, 39, a success.
    He said: “Rock stardom will die because nobody will make enough money any more to be rock stars.

    “Everybody will be jobbing musicians. It’s unbelievable. The music industry has changed beyond all recognition. The music business we signed in to does not exist any more.
    “What is fascinating about that is that there was a way of making money and selling records that got happened upon in the Sixties and it worked for 30-odd years then all of a sudden, in under a decade, it’s gone, never to return.

    “It used to be about the A&R man going to see gigs, demos and people going into record labels saying ‘give us a chance’ and it’s not like that any more.”

    Gallagher also feels his millionaire lifestyle has detached him from his ­audience.
    He said: “You can’t be a hypocrite and write songs about the plight of the working man when you are sipping champagne at eight in the morning in the South of France with a supermodel.”

    Oasis shot to stardom thanks to hits like Live ­Forever and Cigarettes & Alcohol. Their second album, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory, sold 23 million copies worldwide.

      Noel Gallagher suffers power cuts during Dublin gig

    Noel Gallagher was hit by a complete power cut not long into his appearance at Dublin’s Marlay Park yesterday (August 23rd).

    Gallagher opened up the show as co-headliner with Kasabian for the night, but was forced off stage early on during a performance of the 2005 Oasis album track ‘Mucky Fingers‘. Noel’s High Flying Birds were soon able to return, albeit with a slightly shortened set that included the enforced omission of his current solo single ‘Everybody’s On The Run‘.

    Kasabian later followed Gallagher with no major issues being reported, and the Leicester band will now move on to the Reading/Leeds festival for twin performances over the coming August Bank Holiday weekend.

      It's Bound to get Messy

    From Noel Gallagher's 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere' tour diary.

    Yes comrades.

    Where we up to? Fuck knows, let me check . . . .

    So, it would seem the last time we spoke I was getting ready for a festival in Vienna? It was good as I remember. Hadn't played for a while so I wasn't expecting much but it was pretty fucking good. Spoiled only by the death of one of my guitars. Well, it might not be actually dead but it was seriously maimed. A sad day. Rest in pieces my friend, I loved you very much.

    After that we flew to Chelmsford for the 1st night of that V festival. Weather was great. Hot, hot, hot! That festival though (the Chelmsford end of it anyway) has become swamped with young boys in vests and silly hats. Big, big crowd though. Smashed it I think. Legged it pretty much straight off stage up to Manchester. 4 hours in the back of a car. It’s as grim as it get's let me tell you.

    I was up in Manchester for no other reason than to see the new, and still defending, champions of England kick off the new season. Thank fuck it's back. Life is well shit without football. We won. Unconvincingly, if you ask me. Great game though. After that there was a mad dash to the northern end of V in Stafford. What a great gig!! Up there with Benni'. I'm sure it was the same crowd!! Big up if you was there!!!

    So after that we flew to Belfast. A little festival. Good though. Rowdy as fuck. United lost!! We did laugh. Drove to Dublin straight after. Had 2 days off. Drank more than enough Guiness. Lovely.

    Getting ready for a co-headline thing tonight in Marley Park with my old mates Kasabian. Haven't seen them for a while so I'm well looking forward to it. I lost the toss so I'm being put into bat first . . . so to speak. Got a day off tomorrow so it's bound to get messy.

    Oh dear.

    ONWARDS.

    GD.

      "Be Here Now" is 15 years old




    These days, people queue outside shops all night for the latest iPhone or the new Call Of Duty. Fifteen years ago to the day, Oasis fans queued outside record shops to get their hands on ‘Be Here Now’.

    Such was the anticipation and build-up to the release of Oasis’s third album, its release was a full-scale event. The music within seemed oh-so aware of its own importance. The opening track, ‘D'You Know What I Mean?’ begins with the sound of a helicopter and lasts for eight minutes. It’s like the opening scene of an action movie. It must have been a ‘90s thing.

    But back to 'Be Here Now', critics were given preview copies on cassettes that they had to sign for – at the time, this was maximum security for new music. Having been caught out by the success of '(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?', many raved about ‘Be Here Now’. There was a collective will for them to deliver a masterpiece, a collective delusion that the album was better than it really was. The normally tight-fisted Q magazine awarded it a very rare five stars. Others wished they didn’t like it so much. “Halfway through the epic ablutions of 'All Around The World', you realise that every single hair on your arms and neck is standing erect,” wrote NME’s reviewer. “And you think, defiantly, but very, very quietly, "Bugger".”

    Yet over time, peoples’ perceptions of the album began to change. It began to be seen as a rock folly, a coke-fuelled monument to ‘90s excess. There was mass backtracking. It was the emperor’s new clothes, and we were all blind to the reality. Even the most hardened fan would struggle to put ‘Be Here Now’ before B-sides compilation ‘The Masterplan’ in their mental list of the best Oasis albums.


    Producer Owen Morris remembers the sessions this way:

    The only reason anyone was there was the money. Noel had decided Liam was a shit singer. Liam had decided he hated Noel's songs… Massive amounts of drugs. Big fights. Bad vibes. Shit recordings.

    So, 15 years on, numerous paler Oasis albums later, where does ‘Be Here Now’ fit in? Well, yes, it’s ridiculous. Yes, it’s the sound of two men’s egos exploding simultaneously. Yes it’s got lots of empty sentiment covered up by strings and noise. But really, this was ambition and self-belief on a grand scale, with big tunes thrown in for good measure. Can an album that includes the epic, rock ‘n’ roll rush of ‘D’You Know What I Mean’, the sing-along-y ‘Stand By Me’, the council estate pop of ‘The Girl in the Dirty Shirt’ and their most accurate Beatles pastiche, ‘All Around The World’ really be that bad?

    Maybe it’s time to re-re-appraise ‘Be Here Now’. Or perhaps it was never meant to be scrutinised so closely at all. Noel Gallagher himself remembers it as follows: "the sound of five men in the studio, on coke, not giving a fuck." And suddenly, it all makes sense.

      Catching up with Noel

    From Noel Gallagher's 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere' tour diary.

    Yes comrades. . . been a long time. Been on my holidays see? Very nice it was too. Went to a place called Spain. Mallorca to be precise.

    So . . . as I remember the last time we spoke I was just about to play at that Edinburgh Castle? The show was pretty good as I remember it. Didn't rain anyway which is always a bonus up in Scotland (which is where Edinburgh is!).

    Now after that we had a few days off. Then flew to Japan for 72 hours to do that festival Fuji Rock. Very good it was too. It didn’t rain there either which might be the first year that's ever happened. Managed to stay on English time so didn't feel too bad at all. I almost enjoyed it!!!!

    As I was sleeping all day and up all night I managed to catch that Olympic opening ceremony which was on Japanese tv at 6:00 in the morning. Very psychedelic. Didn't see it all mind. How long did it go on for? 9 hours or summat? Good though eh?

    Arrived back in old England and because I'd stayed on UK time guess what? NO JET LAG!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable. I'm definitely trying that next time I'm over there (whenever that'll be I don't know!).

    Anyway . . . after that me and Team NG legged it to Spain for a week or so. Needed it to be honest. Nowt like sitting in the sun. When we got back to old England we'd managed to blag some tickets to that last Saturday at the Olympic stadium. Now I've been to the biggest sporting events on the planet and I've done some monster shows but to be in that stadium and feel the noise and witness the fitness of the great Mo Farah was simply incredible. I have to say when the toffs what run our country started spouting waffle about the Olympics and how it would bring out the best in us blah, blah, blah I was - like most of us I expect – thinking "oh fuck off!" and I've never been one for that last night at the proms bollocks (it's the Celt in me see?) but I have to say they were right. You couldn't fail to be moved.

    Saying that - thank God the football's back. I was up at the pre-season kickabout that is the Charity Shield between God's own team and some other mob called "Chelsea". We won. In style. Looked awesome. I'm very excited about the new season as this tour finishes in November, which means I'll get to see most of it!!!

    Now . . . that brings me to Wednesday night. Did a little acoustic gig for that charity Warchild at that little club in Camden called Dingwalls. Great night. Rowdy as fuck. Could barely hear myself think!

    Which brings me to today and the here and now. You find me in the great city of Vienna in the great nation of Austria. Back on the festival circuit. Not sure how any of the songs go now. I'll have to wing it.

    Wish me luck.

    ONWARDS.

    GD.

      Noel Gallagher: I did play a bit of cat and mouse with Olympic Organisers

    Noel Gallagher's told Xfm his brother Liam and Beady Eye had to get his permission to play Wonderwall at the Olympic closing ceremony on Sunday night...

    Speaking ahead of his intimate show for Xfm and War Child at Dingwalls in Camden the former Oasis man explained how the Olympic Closing Ceremony organisers had to get his agreement for the iconic track - written by Noel - to be used by his brother/former bandmate's new band.

    "They had to re-record it and then send it to me," he explained to Xfm's Danny Wallace.

    "I did play a bit of cat and mouse with them for a few days - I took it 'til Friday night at ten o'clock before I said yes and they were shitting it. Not Beady Eye, the organisers. Because I had to say yeah and I was like 'meh... it's alright.... I'm not sure with this new string arrangement' and they were like 'fuck! the gig's on Sunday' so I was like 'okay, alright, you can have it then'."

    Noel played the track himself at the tiny show - dedicating it to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band".

    David Bowie, The Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones all reportedly turned down the chance to appear in the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony according to The Guardian.

    Noel admitted to Danny that he also said no to performing.

    "I was asked to do it a long time ago and... to be frank.. they were being so secretive about it," he explained.

    "I was like... 'who else is playing?' and they were like 'we can't tell you, you've got to sign a confidentiality agreement' - it's like it's the Iran nuclear programme or something.

    "I mean what do they think is going to happen? ITV are going to get hold of it and put on a gig the night before with the same bill?!

    "And then they wanted me to do it acoustically and then they wanted me to mime... and I'm all for miming in TV shows - I'm all for that - but if you're in a stadium with 80,000 people and you're pretending? I can play live! One of the organisers... I said [to him] 'why do you want me to mime?' and he said 'it's a big gig'. Really?! I do this shit for a living!'"

    "In the end, I was just like... you know what I'd rather watch it on the telly."

    Singer mocks brother Liam's performance at the Olympic closing ceremony

    Noel Gallagher dedicated 'Wonderwall' to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band" at a War Child benefit gig in London tonight (August 14).

    Noel made the jibe in reference to his brother Liam's appearance at the Olympic Games closing ceremony on Sunday night, which saw the younger Gallagher performing 'Wonderwall' with his band Beady Eye.

    The High Flying Birds frontman played an intimate acoustic set at Dingwalls in Camden in aid of the War Child charity, airing a number of Oasis tracks including 'Wonderwall', 'Supersonic' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

    Noel also performed the song 'Angel Child', (see below) the b-side to 1997's 'D'You Know What I Mean' for the first time live, telling the crowd: "I've not heard this since I recorded it."

    He also dedicated 'Supersonic' to British Olympic champion, the "great Mo Farah".




    Noel Gallagher played:

    '(It's Good) To Be Free'
    'Talk Tonight'
    'If I Had A Gun'
    'Supersonic'
    'Wonderwall'
    'Whatever'
    'AKA... What A Life!'
    'D'Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman?'
    'Half The World Away'
    'Angel Child'
    'Don't Look Back In Anger

      Liam Gallagher & Beady Eye Perform Wonderwall at Olympics Closing Ceremony

    Beady Eye, Muse and The Who were among the artists who performed at the Olympics closing ceremony.

     Beady Eye played Oasis' classic 'Wonderwall' during the 'A Symphony of British Music' segment. Backed by a string orchestra, Liam Gallagher was joined by the athletes and the thousands in attendance in singing the 90's Britpop hit. It is the first time Liam has sang the track live since Oasis split up in 2009. Check out fan reaction to the performance on our twitter feed

      Noel Gallagher: I'm yet to play to a person my own age.

    Noel Gallagher is sitting in an Edinburgh hotel, sipping tea. He's in jubilant spirits after playing his 100th gig as a solo artist at Valencia's Benicassim festival. He describes it as "the best one so far, an unbelievable night".

    Not one for understatement, the senior Gallagher brother adds: "It was one of the best gigs I've done in the last 20 years, let alone the last year."


    When he first announced his solo project around a year ago, he seemed reticent about stepping out on his own. The name, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, was chosen because he couldn't bear to perform under just his own name. He hadn't even decided if his microphone would even be centre stage as he'd become so used to standing slightly in the shadows to the right.

    "I'd got that role absolutely nailed," he said at the time, "standing there with my guitar, backing vocals, the odd song. I was absolutely brilliant at it."

    If there were nerves back then, the 45-year-old can no longer remember.

    "I suppose I always knew it was something I'd have to do," he begins.

    "I knew I wasn't going to be in a band – once you've been in a band the size of Oasis what's the point? The album was one thing, where I asked myself, 'Am I comfortable singing ten tracks in a row?' But that was easy really, because I love being in the studio. The only obstacle was that first gig."

    The afternoon of his first show, his beloved Manchester City beat their rivals United 6-1, so any fears went out of the window.

    "I haven't looked back since the first note of the first song. My only worry was whether people would accept it, but they have.

    "Any confidence I have on stage comes from the songs I've written. As the song goes, I haven't got moves like Jagger. I've more got moves like Wyman. People at gigs either want to dance or sing, and I can make people do that. Plus they're not watching me anyway, they're staring at the heavens singing their hearts out, and that's magical. Lucky me."

    Saying music fans have accepted his new work is something of an understatement. His eponymous debut has so far sold more than 600,000 copies, including more than 120,000 copies in its first week of release. To put that into context, the debut by his estranged brother Liam's band Beady Eye only managed to sell that many in its first seven months of release.

    Given that Oasis gigs were more like carol services for the inebriated, emulating football terrace chants, the live arena is still where Gallagher's music makes most sense.

    Whether in smaller venues in the UK, arenas or at festivals all over the world this summer, things very quickly turn into a mass sing-along.

    The Isle Of Wight festival in June was particularly memorable, with around 70,000 people united in their appreciation of Don't Look Back In Anger.

    "We toured for so long in Oasis I got used to it but then every few years I think 'Wow, this lot are kids' and I realise that they weren't there on the last tour, they're just experiencing it for the first time.

    "And that is truly amazing, that a fanbase keeps regenerating itself.

    "I'm yet to play to a person my own age. I'm sure the oldies are at the back doing their knitting, but all I'm playing to is a load of teenagers going berserk at the front."

    Initially Gallagher and his management expected a six-month tour to follow the album release. That was soon extended to nine, then 12, and now, by the time he finishes up in Houston, Texas on November 9, it'll be 14 months on the road.

    "I think my manager wants me to get another six months out of this, but it's time to put it to bed in November, I think. The tours have all run like clockwork, so there's no complaints on that score. It's all the same people that managed Oasis, so they know what they're doing. Experts sit around big tables with coffees and pastries and work all this stuff out. They then just tell me, and that's that."

    Despite missing his wife and three children, the only regret Gallagher has about being on tour for so long is that he missed most of last season's football and Man City's first ever league title win.

    "I watched City win the league in a wine bar in Santiago at 9am, and I'll never forgive myself for that," he says.

    "The plan when I started this album campaign was to just blitz it, to get to a point where people are absolutely sick of the name Noel Gallagher. I'm even sick of it now. I was in the mirror having a shave this morning and I looked up and thought 'Oh not you again'.

    "Next year is basically going to be me at home waiting for a call to do something.

    "After I left Oasis, I wasn't thinking of music. One night I went to bed thinking and music couldn't have been further from my mind. The following morning I woke up and thought it was time to go in the studio."

    As announced last year when he unveiled the band, there's a second solo album already recorded, a more psychedelic collaboration with producer Amorphous Androgynous. The as-yet-unnamed album was meant to have been released already but needs more work.

    "Because I've been on the road, I've not been around to mix it, and the songs that have come through so far I'm not happy with, but we'll see.

    "For now I'm just going to enjoy the rest of the tour, and look forward to sitting on my arse next year. Being a solo artist is fantastic."

      Liam Gallagher buys Essex House condo in NYC



    Liam Gallagher has taken a liking to a two-bedroom condo in the Essex House at 160 Central Park South, which he bought for $2.5 million, according to city records.

    The apartment, listed for $2.9 million with Stribling broker Mary Ellen Cashman, features a large foyer, living/dining room and open kitchen (not many walls, wonder or otherwise, in this apartment).

    Rock star touches include a kitchen with a wine cooler for 40 bottles, in-building laundry/valet and 24-hour room service. When Mr. Gallagher goes on tour with his new band Beady Eye, he’ll have a place to stay in the states.

    And while the location of Mr. Gallagher’s pied-a-terre, purchased from Readman Property NYC LLC may surprise his diehard British fans, it’s not so surprising to learn that he succumbed to property lust. After all, this is a man who allegedly refused to go on Oasis’s first big American tour because he wanted to go house shopping with his wife in England.

      Liam Gallagher: 'clothes are important, man'

    Liam Gallagher: 'Clothes Are Important, Man' His rock star fashion label is a global hit and he'll still look cool at 40, the not entirely former wildman tells Luke Leitch.

    As well as being the finest frontman of his generation, Liam Gallagher is a famously gifted dispenser of insults. The juiciest in this interview is aimed at Wayne Rooney's hair transplant.

    "I'm not having it," cackles Liam from behind his red-tinted Lennon shades and mod-style mid-forehead fringe. "He looks like a f------ balloon with a f------ Weetabix crushed on top. He's better off as a skinhead, isn't he?"

    Along with the insults and that swearing, an interview with Liam wouldn't be complete without mention of his brother Noel. The brothers have been away from each other and Oasis for several years now, touring with their own bands. Even their public feuding has ceased since Christmas.

    "My mum told us we ought to chill out after that suing thing. I went, 'All right, cool'." He adds: "I can't talk to him, but I've never hated him. He's doing his thing and I'll do mine. But I did enjoy our little spats - since we called a truce the world's just boring. It's been hell. We need to get the party started again! Maybe in Japan…"

    Ah, Japan: the reason for his appearance on the Style pages. Three years ago, Liam started his own clothes company. Named Pretty Green and dreamt up by Liam and his security chief-cum-Man-Friday Steve by a pool in LA, it was based on a straightforward idea: to produce the kind of attire that Liam, a self-confessed clothes addict, likes to wear. So think Beatles-y suits, Quadrophenia -ish parkas and polos, carefully cut denim and plenty of paisley.

    Although Liam, unlike so many dubious celebrity "designers", has never professed to create the clothes himself, he does control the quality of everything - and stringently so. "If it isn't cool it gets binned," he says. "I know people might buy it anyway and not everyone's me, but that's how it is: you've got to look at every detail, otherwise you'll end up selling s---."

    Pretty Green has since done pretty amazingly. In its first year of trading turnover was a reported £4 million, and there are 11 stand-alone shops across the nation. Now it is going international, says Liam: "We've got something going on in Copenhagen and there's Tokyo as well."

    The company's first Japanese store opened last week at a party attended by several hundred label‑loving fans and Liam himself, who was passing through for a gig with his post-Oasis band, Beady Eye.

    Liam's move from rock to retail (although he's still rocking) has not only been a success during a particularly difficult period for clothes sales, but seems to have come at the perfect time for a man whose fortune depended partly on record sales. These might have been destroyed by the internet - but you can't download a jacket.

    "Yeah, you're right," he says. "No one's making money out of records so it has been a good move. But it wasn't a planned move, it just happened." Gallagher is keen to avoid sounding too enthusiastic about being in the fashion business because, quite simply, he loathes fashion. "I don't want to get caught up in it," he sniffs. "I'm not hostile, but 90 per cent of the music business is run by idiots and I'll guess it's the same for fashion, know what I mean?"

    To drive the point home, he adds: "I haven't got a favourite brand, I haven't got a favourite designer. I like what I like. I spend a lot of money on clothes so I know my s---. In fact, I probably spend more on clothes than 90 per cent of these fashion people because they get it all for nowt."

    And although he stars in his own campaigns - as evidenced by the largest image on this page - he is even endearingly shifty about endorsing his own clothes. For instance, yesterday, he says, team Pretty Green dropped off some new designs during his band rehearsals. Suffering from a hangover, "I had to walk down Hampstead High Street from the studio with two Pretty Green bags. This bloke at the traffic lights was looking at me with my new clothes in big bags like Victoria Beckham would have -but whereas she'd only have one, I had two - and I could tell he was thinking I looked like a right ----."

    He reserves particular disdain for other musicians who allow themselves to be dressed rather than dressing themselves. "I'll never have a stylist. If I like something, I get it and I put it on. Who are these judges? If you like something, you like it, and if someone else doesn't, well it doesn't mean you're wrong, does it? At least you went out and dressed yourself. If someone turned around to me and was like, 'here mate, take that rubbish off that you've worked your b------- off to buy and get this on you…" A look of withering froideur flits across his face.

    He may despise fashion but Gallagher is perfectly happy about "growing" his brand. He is, he says, "passionate" about doing boys-wear on behalf of his sons, Lennon and Gene. "Lennon's 13 so he can start wearing the T-shirts but Gene [just 11] is desperately going, 'Dad, can I have a parka? Can I have this?'And I'm mad for getting them made." 

    Although he notoriously uses it to aggravate, a lot of Liam's ruckus-whipping rhetoric is, in truth, delivered with a self-deprecating wink. This comes out best today when I ask whether he plans to make Pretty Green perfumes - a question designed to rile him but which delights him instead. "Why not? I'm down with the fragrances. I love my Chanel Bleu - I love it, man - and I get non-stop compliments off the girls who work in toy shops, man. I put loads on, you can smell me coming. So I'd definitely do it, without a doubt. I've got no idea how you go about it, though."

    Next month Liam turns 40. He plans a party - "just another party" - and doesn't seem worried about the milestone: "Bring it on!"
