      Oasis headlining Glastonbury 2014? - odds slashed

    Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Oasis headlining the Saturday night of Glastonbury 2014.

    The Gallagher-fronted band were previously 16/1 to headline the Pyramid Stage next year but those odds have dropped to 9/1 following a rush of bets over the past week. Paddy Power have also cut the odds on the band reforming from 12/1 to 5/1 and Oasis are now at 11/2 to release an album of new material by the end of 2015.

    Alternatively, Noel Gallagher is 20/1 to headline the festival on his own in the slot previously claimed by the likes of Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, Jay Z and, this year, The Rolling Stones. Paddy Power are not, however, currently offering odds on Beady Eye topping the bill in 2014.

    Despite the reduced odds, Oasis still remain an outside bet to headline the Worthy Farm festival next year with Foo Fighters, David Bowie and Daft Punk still favourites with the bookies. Dave Grohl and co. are odds on at 4/1 while Bowie and Daft Punk are at 8/1.

    A spokesperson for Paddy Power said: "We've seen a lot of money being placed on Noel and Liam burying the hatchet, reforming, and rocking Glastonbury – it's enough to make anyone think there could be an expensive divorce or paternity claim just around the corner."

    Other bands and artists included in the latest odds include Kasabian, Elbow, Fleetwood Mac, Prince and Rihanna. Popstar Olly Murs is a long shot with odds of 100/1. See below for a full list of Glastonbury Saturday night 2014 headliner odds:

    Foo Fighters - 4/1
    David Bowie - 8/1
    Daft Punk - 8/1
    Kasabian - 8/1
    Oasis - 9/1
    Elbow - 9/1
    Fleetwood Mac - 12/1
    The Stone Roses - 12/1
    The Killers - 12/1
    Prince - 14/1
    Rihanna - 20/1
    Lily Allen - 20/1
    Noel Gallagher - 20/1
    Bob Dylan - 20/1
    Depeche Mode - 20/1
    Black Sabbath - 33/1
    Olly Murs - 100/1

      Did Gary Glitter make £1million from Oasis hit 'Hello'?

     Tabloid Alert

    POP paedo Gary Glitter has raked in £1million of royalties after Oasis used a clip of one of his hits, it was claimed last night.

    The shamed glam rocker will “continue to earn pots of cash for many years” from Oasis track Hello.

    It is the opening song on (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and includes the lyric ‘Hello, hello, it’s good to be back’, from Glitter’s 1973 hit Hello, Hello, I’m back again’.

    The 1995 Oasis album has sold 22 million worldwide.

    Glitter, 69 — real name Paul Gadd — gets a payment for each album sold, or when the song is played on the radio or internet.

    He is entitled to the cash as he is still credited as the co-writer of Hello — despite receiving an estimated £200,000 for copyright infringement after taking legal action against Oasis in 1999.

    Music lawyer Craig Brookes said Hello could have earned Glitter £1million — on top of £300,000 a year or more from royalties linked to his back catalogue of songs.

    He said: “It’s distasteful, but sadly he is legally entitled to the money — despite being an awful human being.” Glitter was jailed for four months in 1999 for downloading child porn. In 2006, he was caged in Vietnam for molesting two girls. He served almost three years.

    He was also quizzed by cops investigating paedophile Jimmy Savile. Last night the Performing Rights Society said it would continue to collect royalties for Glitter, one of its members.

      Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn are best buddies now

    Former Britpop adversaries Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn are best buddies now, according to Blur bassist Alex James.

    Speaking to Irish radio host Ray D'Arcy, Alex James said: "Ironically Noel and Damon are like best mates now. They go off and smoke cigars together. I think we realised we we're all on the same side eventually."

    Damon and Noel had a rather rocky relationship (to put it lightly) in the 90s, as they were both the figureheads of Blur and Oasis respectively, two of the largest bands in the UK at the time. Noel famously said that he hoped Damon would "catch AIDs and die", and Damon accused both Noel and his brother Liam Gallagher of being bullies. However, the pair have buried the hatchet and even joined each other onstage earlier this year for a performance of Blur's 'Tender' - although Noel couldn't do so without getting one last dig in, saying that he only offered to join in because the song was "easy to play on guitar".

    James also spoke of Blur's break up and subsequent reunion, saying: "It was 2003 when Blur really kind of stopped. And it had been 15 years of us doing the same thing, just the four of us. That's a long time. I think we just all needed to go off and do other things. We've all worked with other people. So when we come back to play together I think we do it just because we want to – there's no pressure… It's actually the best thing we ever did, splitting up."

    He continued: "Back in 2009 when we got back together, they were the best shows we'd ever done. And I think we all thought that was a good place to leave it, maybe. Then we got the call to do this big show last summer to mark the end of the Olympics and I think we all felt we can’t really say no to that. It's such an honour to be asked. And it was so brilliant, we thought what's not to like?"

      Video: Beady Eye - "Shine A Light"

    Beady Eye premiere the video for their latest single ‘Shine a Light’, taken from the 2013 album ‘BE’... Directed by acclaimed, upcoming filmmaker Charlie Lightening, the video depicts the band gathering around a last supper-like banquet and dining like you’ve never seen them dine before.

    Driven forward by Bo Diddley-esqe drum beats, gritty bass and explosive rhythmic guitars, ‘Shine a Light’ takes the listener on an intoxicating journey through intricate and expansive soundscapes and cosmic textures, showcasing Liam’s vocals at their rawest and blistering best.

      No next Oasis on the horizon

    Alan McGee has said he doesn't think it would be possible for him to discover the 'next' Oasis. 

    McGee signed the Britpop band to his old record label Creation but, in an interview with Louder Than War, the music mogul suggested he wouldn't be able to repeat the trick with his new label 359 Music.

    Asked how likely it was that he would be able to attend another un-hyped gig and stumble upon the next big British rock'n'roll band, he replied: "I don't think it's something that could be repeated to be honest, Oasis were the last of that type of phenomenon. With 359, I'm just happy to put out records that I'm into and really like."

    He also spoke about his forthcoming book Creation Stories, which will be released in November on Pan Macmillan. "It's an honest book, by which I mean there's a lot of stuff that nobody has heard me talk about before," he said. "I don't mean salacious gossip but a lot of stuff that I feel I've never really admitted to myself before. I suppose a lot of it is me having a look at myself and how and why things happened the way they did, and just being honest about them."

    McGee, who also founded Poptones, has joined with Cherry Red Records for the new venture. Talking about the label in a recent press release, he said: "My vision for 359 Music is a launch pad for new talent and some ignored older talent. We intend to release on average a dozen new bands per year every year - maybe more if I find a lot of new talent I like. Hopefully some of the artists will stick around and make numerous albums with 359 but some will go on to other things and that is just nature of the musical beast."

    Creation Records was set up in 1983. Its roster included Oasis, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Super Furry Animals. McGee sold half the label to Sony in 1992, before dissolving it fully in 1999 to form his own label Poptones, which signed The Hives. Poptones wound down in 2007, with McGee citing financial reasons.

      No room for Oasis in Queen's 12 minute Britpop medley

    The Beatles and Blur make the cut but there’s no room for Oasis and the Rolling Stones. A 12-minute medley of British rock’s greatest achievements will be performed at Buckingham Palace after the Queen requested a potted history of Britpop.

    A four-day festival, with a “Best of British” theme, opens to the public on Friday in Buckingham Palace's gardens, to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.

    The event will showcase British fashion, food, technological innovation and the arts. For the musical contribution, the Palace has chosen the chart-topping band The Feeling, to play a tightly-constructed medley featuring the most essential music of the Queen’s reign, which neatly encompasses the popular music era.

    The Feeling, whose set list was approved “at the very heighest levels” by the Palace, have boiled down 60 years of artistic innovation and cultural reinvention into just seven songs.

    The medley begins with The Beatles and revives the sonic crunch of The Kinks. It singles out the 70s rock operatics of The Who, the flamboyant showmanship of Queen with David Bowie and the artful state-of-the-nation addresses delivered by Pink Floyd and Blur.

    There are unavoidable omissions, said Dan Gillespie Sells, frontman of The Feeling. “We had to leave out the Rolling Stones and we chose Blur over Oasis because they were the band who most influenced us,” he said. “We could have chosen from a million songs but we went for artists we liked and tried to cover all the bases inside 12 minutes. We didn’t want the medley to be too quickfire either, we restricted it to seven songs.”

    The Queen was spared some controversial choices. “We couldn’t have the Sex Pistols’ God Save The Queen. I’d have liked to do an Elvis Costello song but it would have been too political,” said the singer.

    “We had to send the set-list to the Palace for approval but that’s fair enough – the event is in her house.”

    However some may wish to send The Feeling to the Tower for including their own hit, Love It When You Call as the climax of their Britpop history. “The palace asked us to include one of ours. It was the most played song on the radio so I think it’s fair enough,” explained Gillespie Sells.

    The band debated whether Pink Floyd’s “We don’t need no education” lyric was appropriate for the Palace. “We wanted some Floyd but they don’t really do pop songs,” said Gillespie Sells. “This one clips along and helps with the pace of the medley.”

    At least The Feeling, soon to release a new album called Boy Cried Wolf, did not use their valuable minutes to try out some new material. “We could have included a noughties song from Coldplay,” Gillespie Sells said. “But it’s a bit weird to cover a song by your contemporaries who are your friends.”

    The Feeling will perform their medley each day during the festival and hope the Queen will attend one of the performances.

    Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson, Katie Melua and Laura Wright will also perform at the festival of “innovation, excellence and industry”. Each day more than 6,000 ticket holders will attend the palace gardens which will be filled with more than 200 display stands exhibiting products and services.

    Tickets for the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace at:

    The Best of Britpop?

    Day Tripper – The Beatles (1965 UK chart peak - No 1)

    You Really Got Me – The Kinks (1964 No 1)

      Entire Oasis music catalog soon to stream on Spotify

    Music Week reports that Oasis' entire catalog is set to arrive on Spotify soon, as the band's management says it's "purely a matter of timing".

    The band is one of the biggest holdouts in the UK since it launched in 2008. The post-Oasis work of both Noel and Liam Gallagher (High Flying Birds and Beady Eye) is on the service, but Ignition has not made track available from albums like Definitely Maybe, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Dig Out Your Soul.

    Ignition Records director John Leahy said: "It is the case that historically the Oasis catalogue isn't on Spotify in the UK, but we're talking to Spotify at the moment to address that - and it will be addressed very soon."

    Ignition co-owner Alec McKinlay, who has worked with Oasis since 1993, added: "It's purely a matter of timing. If you're working with artists in any part of the industry, you have to engage with fans in the way they want you to."

    Other long time holdouts have recently appeared on the platform, including Metallica, Pink Floyd and The Eagles. Other bands not available include The Beatles, Led Zeppeln and AC/DC.

    Ignition, meanwhile, is busy handling self-released albums from Primal Scream, Stereophonics and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. It uses a model similar to Oasis' Big Brother Recordings.
