Noel Gallagher ‘s spent most of 2015 dominating the UK’s booming vinyl market, and he’s back at the top again this week with his latest ‘Chasing Yesterday‘ single ‘The Dying Of The Light‘.
Gallagher is the Top 20 of the UK Vinyl Singles Chart too with his previous solo single ‘Lock All The Doors‘ – one of Live4ever’s tracks of the year – while there’s more new entries from New Order , Roisin Murphy, Enter Shikari, Sonic Youth and Inheaven.
Dedicated vinyl album and singles charts were launched by the Official Charts Company earlier this year in recognition of the continuing resurgence of the traditional format – the singles chart is compiled from sales of 7″ and 12″ records.
Noel Gallagher joins Damon Albarn & friends to perform at Paul Simonon's Birthday
Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher led a supergroup formed to celebrate Paul Simonon‘s 60th birthday in London last night (December 13th).
The pair were joined by Jeff Wootton, Chrissie Hynde, Zak Starkey and others for covers of Gorillaz and Clash tracks – one of which, ‘DARE‘, can be seen below.
Albarn and Gallagher’s publicly played out nineties rivalry reportedly cooled following a chance meeting in London in 2012. This show marked the second time since then that they’ve performed together on stage after Gallagher covered ‘Tender‘ with Albarn and his Blur bandmate Graham Coxon during the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts of 2013.
And last year Albarn discussed the possibility of them writing music together at some point, telling NME:
“I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future,” he said of a collaboration. “But, as yet we haven’t really talked about it. OK, we have a little bit. We’re talking. It’s not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he’s doing his thing.”
“He’s finishing a new record. I’ve got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something, you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once.”

He then returned in High Flying Birds guise for the main event, airing songs which have served him well during the 2015 touring campaign behind second solo album ‘Chasing Yesterday‘.

‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’
Noel Gallagher has discussed his regrets over the way Oasis broke up, speaking in an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 last night (December 7).
Oasis parted ways in 2009, with rumours of a potential reunion circulating earlier this year. However, earlier this year Noel said that there is only a one per cent chance of the band reforming.
Speaking to Whiley, Gallagher has now said: "Leaving Oasis – that was a horrible night [in Paris, 2009]. I knew that it was going to be a decision that would follow me around – there’s still not a day where I don’t read something about us getting back together – so I knew what I was getting myself into. [It was the right thing to do], definitely. What Oasis had in its future was to do bigger tours and generate more money, which is great. I wasn’t planning on going solo, but it was such a mess that I was happier off [doing that]."
He added: "I wish – this is all in hindsight – that we hadn’t broken up. That we all agreed we’d all do different things, and then one day we’d all get back together – but it all got vicious, and I wish it had been handled differently. But I don’t have too many regrets."
Speaking about his current relationship with brother Liam, Noel continued: "It’s difficult for people to understand that to be in a working relationship for 20 years with someone you’re so close with is really difficult. And there’s a whole mess that’s gone on around it. But I’ve no doubt that, one day, it’ll be all OK again."
Gallagher also revealed he won't be seeing his younger sibling at Christmas.
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds released latest album 'Chasing Yesterday' earlier this year and enjoyed a triumphant festival season, including a headline appearance at the Calling Festival in London.
The band will be back on the road in April 2016 with a tour that begins in Glasgow at the SSE Hydro on April 21 and culminates at the end of the month at Bournemouth's BIC. The band also play dates in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham. Super Furry Animals support on all dates except in Bournemouth.
Lincs FM played host to an intimate gig with Noel Gallagher at the weekend, and was branded as the best one yet by the station.
The event, on Saturday 5th December in Lincoln, was restricted to 200 lucky listeners, playing with ex-Oasis bandmate Gem Archer for the first time since 2010.
It was Noel’s first visit to Lincoln, where he played new material along with classics such as Wonderwall and Don’t Look Back in Anger.
On bringing Noel to the area, Lincs FM’s Director of Programming Sean Dunderdale said, ‘It was amazing – we have been doing these up close gigs for a few years now and this was the best one of the lot.
“The fact that he did over an hour was fantastic. It was great to bring him to Lincoln, we brought Adele to Louth just before she became really famous but Noel is a big star right now.”
Noel Gallagher's Thoughts on Recent Terror Attacks
Noel Gallagher says music is now more important than ever in the wake of the deadly Paris terror attacks.
"In the light of the things that have gone on in Paris recently, it makes it even more special," Gallagher told Australian publication Music Feeds. "These f**king animals are trying to take that s**t away from us. They hate musicians. They hate women. They hate music. That's all I love. It's even more important to put more music out there in the world - to protest that, to counter that. That's the way I see it."
Gallagher also made a comment about Damon Albarn, hinting at the fact that the two have discussed working together soon. He added that whatever it is they are working on will be made public shortly.
'Noel Gallagher settles the Score' - Interview with NZ Harald News
Not only is he funny, friendly and unflinchingly honest, but it turns out Noel Gallagher is good at getting his excuses in early.
On Don't Look Back in Anger, one of two anthems that made Oasis, albeit briefly, the biggest band in the world, he sang: "Please don't put your life in the hands, of a rock 'n' roll band, who'll throw it all away."
That was 1995. I could have listened, but then I wouldn't have the story I've been waiting to get off my chest for more than six years.
It was 2009 and Oasis were in the last throes of a world tour. Noel was using his tour blog to predict dark times for the band.
