Video: Noel Gallagher interview with KFOG, San Francisco
Noel Gallagher was in San Fransisco recently to play the Warfield and stopped by KFOG to talk about New Orleans, his fondness for America, the Irish and their ability to drink and why U2 should do the #BoobProject
Noel Gallagher has discussed the last days of Oasis and the intense rivalry with his brother.
In a new interview with Noisey, writer Jon Doran asks Noel Gallagher about Wibbling Rivalry (a recording of Oasis having an argument from 1994) which prompts the songwriter to remember the last days of Oasis. "If I think back to it now....my argument is 'Be a cunt all you want... but let's do the gig first and then be a fucking dick'. His argument is 'I'm just being a dick all the time'. Repeat endlessly until fucking 2009."
Gallagher remembers that on a number of occasions he would be left to appease audience members during Oasis performances. "I remember countless gigs where three songs in he'd just pop his fucking headphones out and just get off. You'd be doing a guitar solo and you'd get to the end of the song and think 'It's not that mad for him just to disappear during the guitar solo and not sing the rest of the song - he's obviously gone back to fix his sunglasses or something'.
"Then you'd just go 'Where's Liam gone?' He's got off. What do you mean he's got off? He's got a sore throat. What a cunt. Then you've got to go out and say in English to a perplexed Japanese people... 'I know you don't understand what I'm fucking saying but what' I'm saying is the singer has got off' [applause]. 'So I'm going to have to sing the rest of the song' [applause]. And then you start singing and they're all like 'What the fuck is going on here? Where's the singer gone?'"
Noel added: "I could never forgive him for that. Ever."
Episode 5 - "Liam was a was into breakdancing and Noel was dressed like a rockabilly"
In this weeks episode of The StageLeft Podcast, the eldest Gallagher brother entertains with tales from touring the globe as a DJ, how dance floor audiences differ around the world & what it was like DJing to disgruntled Oasis fans the night the band split.
Paul also gives The StageLeft Podcast his views on the possibility of Liam working with Richard Ashcroft, the family's Irish heritage and the prospect of Oasis reforming.
“This is a big business. I’m sure it will happen one day, there’s too much money for it not to. They’re a premier band. Regardless of what they say..... money talks.”
Noel Gallagher accepts "Best Rock Interview" award from Rolling Stone
When we (Rollingstone Magazine) learned that Noel Gallagher was going to be in the building earlier this week, we knew we couldn't let the occasion pass without doing something special. Beyond the fact that he's a brilliant songwriter and performer, he's an absolutely sensational interview subject. In our most recent talk with the High Flying Birds frontman, he bashed nearly everyone involved with Tidal, made hysterical points about Zayn Malik's decision to leave One Direction and slammed opponents of gay marriage.
The interview generated headlines all over the world, and proved to us once again that Gallagher is the single greatest interview in rock. He never hesitates to name names, talk shit and say whatever comes into his mind. He's insanely funny, extremely well-read and fearless in every respect.
Gallagher knows that nearly every interviewer he comes into contact with will ask about a possible Oasis reunion, and like a great jazz musician that never plays two notes the same way twice, he always explains why it won't happen in a completely different way. The only difficult part about talking to him is that sometimes we're laughing too hard to ask the next question.
With all that in mind, we created a Best Rock Interview trophy, got some flowers and glitter and presented this to him in an impromptu ceremony captured in the video above. He refused to wear the paper crown we constructed, but was otherwise a good sport about the whole thing.
"This is unbelievable," he said. "As you can clearly see, I'm overwhelmed by this. I'd like to thank my mum for giving me a belligerent attitude. I'd also like to thank my dad for giving me probably the rudest tongue in all of rock interview. I'd also like to thank my wife and children for putting up with this nonsense when I'm off camera and Rolling Stone for this award, which is quite exceptional. Long may it continue."
Amen to that. Noel, whenever you feel like chatting, we're right here to listen.
Still Changing After All These Years - Noel Gallagher Live in New York
(Photo: Paul Bachmann/Live4ever)
It’s funny to think, after all these years, that Noel Gallagher is at the moment changing more profoundly than at any other time in his career.
While on second solo album ‘Chasing Yesterday‘ the change was hardly seismic, it was change nonetheless. In approach its recording was as far removed from Oasis in its introverted, minimalist nature as could be imagined, while the make-up of the album itself at least had hints at a more broad musical range ready to be explored further in time.
Live too, things have been taken up a notch since world tour dates started with a bang and a trip around UK arenas back in March.
Where the nature of the 2011-12 production reflected the pleasing, but safe nature of debut solo album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘, this tour instead is developing a life all of its own.
At the Webster Hall in New York last night (May 7th), it was up on the stage where the changes were most apparent.
Video: Noel Gallagher 's High Flying Birds - Live in London 2015
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds perform a stunning exclusive gig in South East London exclusively for Absolute Radio, in 2015. The full set includes the tracks 'Do the Damage’, ‘Everybody's on the Run’, 'In the Heat of the Moment’, 'Lock All the Doors’, ‘Riverman’, 'You Know We Can't Go Back’, 'Ballad of the Mighty I’, ‘The Dying of the Light’, 'Dream On’, 'The Mexican, 'If I Had a Gun…’, 'AKA... What a Life!', plus Oasis Classic ‘The Masterplan’.
On Friday, Noel Gallagher was the latest musician to take plunge and participate in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). The outspoken Oasis guitarist delivered with a number of spectacular quotes, including a declaration regarding his place within rock and roll’s hierarchy.
Asked how he feels being “one of the last true rock stars,” Gallagher responded, “It feels good to be one of the last rockstars,” adding, “In fact, that’s what I am.”
In a related question, Gallagher was asked whether a rock band in 2015 can reach the popularity of Oasis, to which he replied, “I think that the days of a rock band explodin’ out of a council estate in the north of England and going on to connect with so many people in so many countries around the world… I think the chances of that happenin’ again are very, very slim.” But he added, “We live in a world of hope.”
He also believes “rock n’ roll has turned into – or been turned into – a thing that is now referred to as ‘modern rock,'” adding, “I just think that the attitude, and the spirit, that we had is definitely disappearing.”
Elsewhere in the AMA, Gallagher declared Oasis’ third studio album Be Here Now “shit .. And I’m allowed to say that because I fucking wrote it.” Despite that, there will be a reissue of Be Here Now in the near future, which will include “The Mustique Demos.”
As for an Oasis reunion, while Gallagher didn’t address it specifically, it definitely seems like it won’t be happening anytime soon. Gallagher told fans he expects to tour with the High Flying Birds well into 2016.
Also unlikely is a collaboration album with Damon Albarn. Despite previously suggesting a joint album was a realistic possibility, Gallagher isn’t so sure now. “The thing with Damon was a flippant comment as casually thrown around as ‘We should go for a drink.’ As for makin’ an album, I would be amazed if either of us ever had the time to make that work.”
