      Radio 1 says 'Noel Gallagher's music is more at home on Radio 2'


    Playlist bosses George Ergatoudis and Nigel Harding discuss Green Day, Robbie Williams and Muse.

    BBC Radio 1music bosses have described Noel Gallagher's music as "more at home on Radio 2" while admitting that Green Day's recent output has not been good enough to get played by the station.

    Both head of music at Radio 1, George Ergatoudis, and Nigel Harding, the station's music policy director, have answered a number of questions from music industry figures in the new issue of Music Week. Among those quizzing the pair is Kevin McCabe, a music promotions specialist, who asked what the concise criteria is regarding an artist's age and how that affects their chances of being playlisted on Radio 1.

    Responding to the confusion around Robbie Williams' 2012 single 'Candy' not making the playlist but his 'Goin' Crazy' collaboration with Dizzee Rascal being played heavily, Nigel Harding says: "This is all about the age of the artist's primary audience. In Robbie's case we believe that his main fan base is comfortably over the age of 30, whereas Dizzee's is clearly much lower." Moving on to Noel Gallagher, Harding adds: "I think Noel's music feels more at home on Radio 2, and the last Green Day project simply wasn't good enough."

    Muse also came into consideration with Harding stating: "Muse are approaching a crossroads - their last single was the first one not playlisted by Radio 1 in a decade. The door remains open to them but we'll have to think carefully about their next album."

    Previously,Robbie Williams called Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw a "bastard" during a live appearance following the stations refusal to playlist his song 'Candy', saying that the former Take That singer was too old for them to champion.

      Liam Gallagher to perform at charity concert for Jon Brookes

    Liam Gallagher will play live at a one-off charity concert being organised by The Charlatans in memory of former drummer Jon Brookes.

    The Beady Eye frontman will play alongside The Charlatans at London’s Royal Albert Hall in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity on October 18. The line-up addition was confirmed by Gallagher over the weekend via his official twitter account and comes following the death of Brookes in August. Tickets for the gig are on sale here now. Brookes passed away peacefully in hospital on the morning of August 13, with his family at his bedside.

    Brookes had been receiving treatment for a brain tumour since suffering a seizure on tour in Philadelphia in 2010. Though he continued to perform with The Charlatans – he was back on stage a month after his US collapse – he underwent several operations and received radiotherapy and chemotherapy. He suffered a relapse in September 2012 and was operated on as recently as July this year.

    Burgess paid tribute to Brookes in a blog he wrote for NME.COM in which he says: "Last week we lost a brother, a friend, a band member and a huge part of all our lives."

    The charity show will be one of Liam Gallagher's first appearances since Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer injured himself earlier this year. The guitarist was hospitalised on August 1 with severe head trauma, forcing the band to cancel all scheduled live performances for August, including appearances at V Festival. It has since been reported that Archer fractured his skull after falling down a flight of stairs at home, but Beady Eye have confirmed that Archer is "expected to make a full recovery

      New Injury for Gem Archer?

    Tabloid alert

    Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer Gem Archer is reported to have broken his leg whilst at home recovering from his recent skull fracture. 

    Earlier this month, the band reported that Archer was making a 'full recovery' in time for the band's upcoming UK and Ireland tour in November after it was previously feared that the guitarist was unlikely to perform with the band for the remainder of the year after suffering a serious head trauma in August - forcing the band to cancel their appearance at V Festival.

    But now, a source has told The Sun newspaper that Archer has had a metal pin inserted into one of his legs nd will spend four months in a plaster cast after a recent accident in the bathroom at home, where his leg snapped in two places.

    "Gem's on a bad run of luck right now," said the source. "First the fall down the stairs and now this. He can't even explain how it happened, it was just a freak accident. His leg gave way under him and just went. 'He's got a double fracture to the tibia and fibula, the two long bones in the lower leg.''

      Noel Gallagher camp denies there are secret talks to reunite Oasis

    A spokesperson for Noel Gallagher has said that rumours the band will reunite and play a series of gigs at Knebworth in 2014 are "not true". 

    A story began circulating at the weekend with the Daily Mail claiming that Noel and Liam Gallagher have been "approached by promoters willing to pay huge sums for them to play two shows to mark 20 years since their debut album 'Definitely Maybe'". A source told the paper "If the gigs happened, they would perform 'Definitely Maybe' from start to finish." 


    However, a spokesperson from Noel Gallagher's PR company said simply: "It's not true" when approached by NME to comment on the story. 


    This backs up Noel's own dismissal, which came earlier in the year. Asked during an appearance on Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy's talkSPORT radio show on August 15 if there is any truth to reunion rumours, Gallagher replied with a simple "no". He was then asked whether he would like to reform the band next year, and once again responded with a short, sharp "no" before confirming: "No, it definitely won't happen." In June, Noel's brother Liam Gallagher told NME that the band had "unfinished business" and suggested that he and Noel could "bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour" to celebrate the anniversary.

      Another Definitely Maybe reunion rumor surfaces



    Tabloid Alert:
    It wouldn't be normal if another week went by without musics's most popular reunion rumor:

    Noel and Liam Gallagher are in top-secret talks about re-forming Oasis.

    The brothers have been approached by promoters willing to pay huge sums for them to play two shows to mark  20 years since their debut album.And their answer could match the album’s title: Definitely Maybe.

    The brothers have not been on stage together since a dramatic showdown at a Paris gig in 2009 when Liam reportedly smashed one of Noel's guitars

    The pair could be tempted, despite Noel once saying the band wouldn’t re-form ‘even if all  the starving children in the world depended on it’.

    'Talks are said to be fragile but the package on the table may prove irresistible to Liam.
    The 40-year-old needs to pay for £500-an-hour lawyer Fiona Shackleton, who is handling his divorce from Nicole Appleton. Oasis split four years ago after fighting between the brothers. Since then Liam’s new band, Beady Eye, have had only a fraction of the success of Oasis.

    If the concerts do go ahead, they are expected to be staged next August at Knebworth. When Oasis played there in 1996 they sold 330,000 tickets – the fastest-selling in British rock history.
    A source said: ‘If the gigs happened, they would perform Definitely Maybe from start to finish.’

    Noel, 46, subsequently quit the band saying: ‘I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.’ He has since fronted his band High Flying Birds. But in June, Liam hinted there could be a reunion. He said: ‘I’d do it for nowt, but if someone’s going to drop  a load of f**king money, I’d do it for that too.’

    Both brothers’ spokesmen declined to comment.

      Noel Gallagher blasts BBC Radio 1 and One Direction

    It’s news to absolutely nobody that brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher – of Oasis fame – don’t hold back on their criticism and acerbic barbs, and in today’s Sun, it’s been reported that this week, it was Noel’s turn to fire several blasts across the bows of Radio 1, One Direction and the music industry in general!

    In an expletive filled interview with GQ magazine, Noel began by lambasting Radio 1, remarking, “There’s a lack of soul on Radio 1…

    “I mean, what’s going to be the future of chart music?”

    Branding the station “pretty f****** dreadful” he added, “I can’t get my head round pop music.

    “It’s all on the same frequency. It all seems designed to aggravate my teeth.

    “You know music that makes your teeth hurt?

    He added, “Everybody’s winning out of it.”

    And of One Direction – who are of course Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne – Noel said, “One Diretion aren’t working in the local f****** Costcutter, so they’re winning.

    “The geezer who’s writing the f****** s*** tunes, he’s winning. He’s got f****** new houses coming out of his ear holes.

    “The record company are winning because they’re all getting their f****** bonuses at Christmas.

    “The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day, they might actually grow up to give one of them a b*** job.

    “They’re all winning. No one’s losing.

    “The only people who are losing are idiots like me at 9.30 in the morning when you’re trying to get the kids out the door for school, and they’re f****** murdering one of Blondie’s songs.”

      Noel Gallagher confirms he's up for working with Damon Albarn

    Former Oasis songwriter finally ready to collaborate with Blur frontman but denies Oasis will play Glastonbury 2014.

    Noel Gallagher has said that he is "interested" in working with Damon Albarn but refuted claims Oasis will reform in 2014 and headline Glastonbury.

    Gallagher spoke about his friendship with the Blur frontman, as well as the future of Oasis, while at this year's GQ Awards where he collected an Icon prize. He told The Sun that he is up for working with Albarn but there is no chance fans will see him back with brother Liam and Oasis next year.

    The Sun reports Gallagher responded with a firm "no" when asked if Oasis were reuniting in 2014 and that he added there is no chance of the band playing Glastonbury. However, his friendship with Albarn may move in a musical direction with Gallagher adding: "I like Damon and would be interested in working in something."

    As previously reported, Noel aimed a jibe at Foreign Secretary William Hague from the stage at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London on Tuesday night (September 4). Appearing on stage to collect his Icon prize, Gallagher told the audience: "Welcome to the Tory party conference, by the way. Nice to see the Foreign Secretary here with all the shit going on in the world that he should be sorting out. Good for you."

    Gallagher was presented with the Icon prize at last night's GQ Men Of The Year Awards, where other winners included Arctic Monkeys, Lou Reed, Elton John and The Who's Roger Daltrey.

      Interview with GQ Icon Noel Gallagher




    To mark his Icon award at this year's GQ Men Of The Year Noel Gallagher sat down with Danny Wallace to discuss his thoughts on literature, One Direction and so much more. Read the full interview in the October issue but in the meantime here are Gallagher's thoughts on the increasingly strange world of citizen paparazzi and what happened when he gave Rihanna a gift backstage.


    "I don't do rock star stuff. I don't wear sunglasses all the time - I tend to wear them when it's sunny. I don't have an entourage, and when I do it's pathetic. Never more than two people. I was at a festival in Norway and Rihanna's just arrived with a hundred people. F***ing small army. And I had to go into this room, which was all just racks of clothing and stuff that designers and punters had brought to give to Rihanna. And they all had these cards in front of them, saying: 'Dear Rihanna, we are such huge fans, please accept this $90,000 handbag from whoever and whoever'. And I'm reading all these cards as I'm waiting to go in… so I went back to my dressing room and got the little bowl of Cadbury's Sensations and left it there on her table with a card saying 'Dear Rihanna, please accept these chocolates on behalf of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'. And she took them. She f***ing took them.

    The celebrity thing is… I've been at airports or restaurants or walked into newsagents and it can be like something from the Wild West… everyone goes for their pockets. They're going for their phones. And you can tell that some of them, they don't even know who you are - but they know you're famous. And their first reaction is to get a picture. Why? What are they going to do with that? What on earth are they going to do with that? And if I say no, why insist? Why follow me down the high street, complaining, saying, 'But I've bought all your records!' I don't care if you've bought all my records! Go home and listen to them then! I don't understand the trophy photograph. No one - not one of my mates - has ever once gone to me, 'Look! Here's a photo of me with Telly Savalas!'. Brilliant. Well done. What are you going to do with that? Put it in the National Portrait Gallery? What is the point? And the thing is about people taking pictures - they don't f***ing know how to operate a camera. None of them. 'Can I get a quick photo?'. Well, it's not going to be quick, is it? Or if someone comes up to you in Selfridges while you're buying socks and pants, and gives you a tube ticket to sign... I have to say, 'I am not signing that'. It's the argumentative soul in me. 'Why not?' Well, what are you going to do with it? Are you going to put that tube ticket on a plinth at home? Come on. Go and get an album. I'll be in this section buying socks for the next 45 minutes. HMV is downstairs. You can be there and back in ten minutes. Do not make me sign the back of a f***ing receipt from Boots."

      A Message from Beady Eye

    Hi

    A big thank you to everybody who's been in touch to give messages of support for Gem following his accident. He and his family really appreciate it and so do the band.

    We are gutted about all the cancelled shows but thank you for understanding that we need to prioritise our mate and his recovery.

    The good news is Gem is doing well so far and is expected to make a full recovery over the next few weeks.

    This is just to say thanks for your patience, and for all the messages that have come in from all over the world. We are buzzing about getting back on stage for the UK and Ireland dates in November.

    Thanks, Beady Eye.

    Tickets are still available to see the band when they return to the stages in November. Check here

    [EDIT: Seems this message was sent out weeks ago originally. Would think Sony had something new to say in an update?]

      New release: Noel Gallagher: Alone on the rope (Live @ TCT)




    Noel Gallagher, who earlier this year curated the annual Teenage Cancer Trust shows at London's Albert Hall performed himself on March 23, with support from none other than Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon.

    It was a special night - additionally special because Noel played his song Alone On The Rope live for the very first time. The studio recording of it first appeared as a bonus track for customers of Amazon who pre-ordered the High Flying Birds album.
