Noel Gallagher's Naughty Pretty Thing

Noel Gallagher has ripped off a song by The Pretty Things for the new Oasis album.

The Oasis guitarist is planning to include an unapproved version of The Pretty Things track 'Baron Saturday' on the band's new album and is worried he may be sued by the band's lawyers

Noel confessed: "I hadn't heard this at all until about three months ago and a friend of mine, who is in Kasabian, sent me a CD of some stuff he was listening to and it completely bent my head.

"I spent the next three months trying to rip it off for when the next Oasis record comes out.

"I shouldn't really be saying that because The Pretty Things' lawyers will be listening to this now, won't they! But there you go."

Q&A With Peter Crouch

Peter Crouch was born in 1981 in Macclesfield and spent his early years in Singapore, where his father worked in advertising, before returning to London.

He joined the junior ranks of Queens Park Rangers, then at 14 joined Tottenham Hotspur.

In 2000 he returned to QPR and his career took off, taking him to Portsmouth, Aston Villa and Southampton.

In 2005 he made his England debut and moved to Liverpool for £7m; he later became the first player to score 10 international goals in a calendar year.

Walking Tall, his autobiography, has just been published. He lives in Cheshire.

When were you happiest?
The last time I scored.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
A penalty for England at Wembley against Jamaica when I was on a hat-trick - I tried to take the piss out of the goalkeeper by chipping the ball, and it went over the bar.

What is your favourite book?
Angels And Demons, by Dan Brown.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
Gazza - he'd have some good stories. Ronaldo. Noel Gallagher - I was a big Oasis fan. And Ricky Gervais.

Exclusive Liam Gallagher Picture Gallery By MOJO’s Kevin Westenberg

In a startling interview in this month’s MOJO magazine, Oasis singer and professional loose cannon, Liam Gallagher, declares that his feud with former Blur whipping boy Damon Albarn, is over.

“I don’t mind Blur. I’m over it,” he reveals. “ When I see Damon Albarn, I buzz off him.” It is just one of many remarkable statements that culminate in the mind-boggling claim that he is “The Enlightened One”...

Liam Gallagher: The Oasis vs Blur Fued Is Over

Singer says he now 'buzzes off' Damon Albarn

Liam Gallagher has called an end to his feud with Britpop rivals Blur.

His band Oasis and the London group were arch rivals in the 1990s, with it all coming to a head when both bands released a single on the same day in 1995 - Blur's 'Country House' beat Oasis' 'Roll With it' following a massive war of words between the two bands.

Now the Oasis frontman says he's not only over the rivalry, but actually likes Blur frontman Damon Albarn.

"I don't mind Blur," Gallagher told Mojo. "I'm over it [the rivalry]. It was a laugh man, that's what you do when you're young."

He added: "When I see Damon Albarn, I buzz off him. If I was still caught up in it now I'd be a right wanker."

The singer's comments follow those of guitarist Noel Gallagher, who told NME.COM earlier this year that he respects his rivals as musicians.

"You know Damon, bless him, I've got a lot of respect for him. This never comes across in interviews, but I really do mean it," Noel said. "Because I'm indifferent to Damon, he thinks that I think he's a cunt. Our Liam will talk to him. I won't because he's just another singer in a band to me, but I don't think he's a cunt. Good luck to him."

Blur, meanwhile, are set to consider reuniting for a new record next week. Bassist Alex James has said all four members will have lunch together to discuss working again following guitarist Graham Coxon's departure from the band in 2002.

Liam Gallagher: I Sounded Like Tweetie

Liam Gallagher always said Oasis were the biggest and best band in the world.

But now the gobby frontman has confessed most of their early material makes him cringe — because he says he sounds like Tweetie Pie.

He said: “I hate my voice on all them records. I sound like f****** Tweetie Bird.

“I mean, they were good at the time, it’s the best I could do, but I prefer it the way it is now.

“When I hear Slide Away, I think, ‘That’s a vocal’. Supersonic, that’s all right.

But certain songs, Live Forever, some of the high bits I just think (head in hands), ‘Aw, f*** that’. I was young. I hate that vocal on Whatever. I despise it. It’s s***.”

So, I got my graphics whizzes to do Tweetie up with a Liam haircut.

Even so, I reckon he’s being tough on himself. The Manc legend turned 35 last week and has clearly mellowed, admitting, “I'm not too shy to give love, man.”

The way he talks about sons Lennon and Gene — by his ex Patsy Kensit and his missus Nicole Appleton — is a far cry from his Britpop hell-raising days

Of six-year-old Gene, he said: “His hair is like, golden blonde. My kid’s got the best haircut in the world, man. I do it every day. The comb is your friend! I think I’m a top dad. Haven’t got a nanny, none of that.”

Describing a typical day in the life of Liam, he said: “Get up, tea, relax and watch Jeremy Kyle give it everyone. I love Jeremy Kyle, he’s a geezer.

“One day he's gonna lose it and proper have it with someone (mimes headlock) and I'm mad for that on live TV.

“Followed by Loose Women. The Loose Women are having it, man.”

The reformed rocker also opened up about his fears about the day Oasis split. He said: “I’d go insane, wouldn’t I? ’Cos it’s your life.”

“I'm dreading the day if that's the way it's gonna be. But who knows what it's gonna be?

“Just concentrate on one year at a time. One day at a time.”

Music certainly wouldn’t be the same without him.

First Listen Lord Don't Slow Me Down

From the whimsical acoustic version Noel plays on the tour bus in the film 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' has grown into a full-blooded, hard-living, rock 'n' roll stomper.

Its pounding drums and bluesy guitars provide yet more evidence of how Oasis are evolving - no, really this time!

The Coral Speak About There Friendship With Oasis

The Coral are a peculiar band. Not as people – a nicer bunch of lads you couldn’t wish to meet – but if they wanted to be, they could be some of the most recognisable faces in music.

Instead, they’re rather anonymous, much preferring to let their excellent music – on CD, such as their new album Roots And Echoes, and live (they go on tour this autumn) – do the talking.

As the story goes, lead singer James Skelly was once sitting in the Kop at Anfield, home of his beloved Liverpool FC, and overheard the lad sitting next to him telling a friend how much he liked the band, but failed to notice the singer sitting inches away.

The album was recorded at Wheeler End studio, owned by one Noel Gallagher. Their invitation to work at the studio came when the band were partying with Oasis at their hotel in Scotland.

“I nipped out onto the balcony to have a ciggie,” Ian recalls. “Liam was out there too, and he said we should go and do some tunes at Wheeler End as they weren’t using it at the time. ”

“It’s a great studio. There’s loads of vintage gear in there,” James says. “I’d definitely work there again.”

Ian recounts how they repaid the Oasis main man for letting them use the studio: “We bought this tiny model of a Gibson Flying V and all signed it. I swear it wasn’t meant to seem as cheeky as it looked!”

Even though they can count Noel as a friend rather than an idol these days, they can’t help nervously making fools of themselves when he’s around. “I behave like an idiot, and say such stupid things,” cringes keyboard-player Nick. “He’s a cool guy though, Noel. He’s really mellow, and dead down to earth.”

One of the most popular radio stations in England - Radio 1 feature many new bands each week, speak to some of the biggest bands around at the moment and are generally notorious for providing excellent music, presenters, new music and interesting features such as the live lounge.

The concept behind the live lounge is to provide listeners with especially recorded live versions of their favourite bands tracks. This was a huge success and what became even more popular was recording of artists covering other artists, some of similar style other of something completely different and unexpected.

The album is highly successful in taking familiar and popular songs and giving them a very interesting twist from the eyes and ears of other popular artists.

There are 42 tracks on this album in total featuring the more popular live lounge sessions up until late 2006. About a third of the songs are artists recording their own songs live and the other two thirds, very interesting live covers of other artists songs.

This album is very different but very enjoyable and highly listenable. There is a wide range of content, but it all runs smoothly as any album should. With such a range of content, there will undoubtedly be some songs you do not like, however there will equally be a number of songs you especially do like.

This is a must have cd, whoever you are, whatever your music taste is.

Oasis Star Noel Talks Babies And Football

He Talks Football At Son's Birth

IT looks like footie mad Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher got his priorities a bit mixed up during the birth of his new son.

Noel was playing the dutiful boyfriend to a tee when he accompanied girlfriend Sara to the delivery suite to see Donovan Rory arrive into the world on Saturday.

But the Manchester City nut soon spoiled his new man image by asking her to make sure the tot arrived before his favourite football show finished.

Noel revealed his clanger during a chat with Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles.

He told him: "I just stood there in my leather jacket, nodding and going 'It will be alright, just get it out before Soccer AM finishes'."

Noeland Edinburgh-born Sara picked the middle name Rory after the baby's 72 year-old Scots grandad.

The Boy's Don Good, Noel

Allow me to introduce Donavon Rory MacDonald Gallagher.

The little lad left London’s Portland Hospital on Monday, with dad Noel and mum Sara MacDonald.

And my exclusive snaps show he may have inherited his mum’s gorgeous looks.

The legend’s beloved Man City have already moved to add another Gallagher fan, with a gift pack of junior membership, a baby City kit and a Baby Blue On Board car sign.

A club source said: “We wouldn’t want him becoming a United, Arsenal or Chelsea fan – I’m sure his old man agrees.”

The emotional impact of McKee's work cannot be underestimated - like a faded photograph found at the back of a drawer - the artist's work brings to life people, places and characters that time has all but erased. Mods, rockers, British seaside holidays, chopper bikes, working men's clubs, factory girls and teddy boys are just some of the subjects that live on in the world of Pete Mckee. Since his first exhibition in a Sheffield pub in 2005 Pete has had over ten solo exhibitions, showing in New York, London, Dublin, Brighton and Saltaire.- www.petemckee.com
Of the process the artist says:

"It was great to Have Noels direct involvement with the guitar and he was very keen to make sure all the records and bands he chose reflected his influences as a lad learning to play guitar, to the point that underneath a couple of the sleeves lie rejected choices only he and I know about."

Gibson GuitarTown London is a community art project aimed at bringing the community of London together through art, music and charitable giving. Through The Gibson Foundation, the proceeds from ticket sales to the event on Thursday, November 8th, and the sale of the guitars at auction will benefit three non-profit organizations.

Oasis To Release New Single In Three Weeks

The Gallaghers embrace the digital age with 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down'

Oasis have broken their vow to have a year off and will release a new single in three weeks' time.

The Noel Gallagher fronted track from their first ever digital-only release on October 21.

The song will be available from the band's website www.oasisinet.com, and comes bundled with two live songs from their City Of Manchester Stadium gigs in 2005. A video for the song will appear on YouTube from October 1, the same day the song debuts on radio.

Noel explained he felt the song was good enough to go on a album, but included it in the documentary instead. "It's good and rocking - just 12 bar blues really," he said. "It's got left off the last album as it was the same verse all the way through, but it's kind of locked into that now as it appears at the end of the film."

The song's bluesy feel reflects the Oasis leader's current listening tastes. "I probably listen to Neil Young and Bob Dylan more than any other artists," he explained before revealing how his songwriting process works these days.

"One day you hit a chord - let's say A minor, the saddest chord of all and it won't mean f**k all. The next day you're in a different head space and it will sound completely different," he said. "Usually I start with a chord on the guitar and if the first line pops into your head you realise you're going to make a fortune soon!"

Meanwhile, the DVD of Lord Don't Slow Me Down will be out on October 29. Noel explained that the documentary was an accident, as Oasis had only intended to make one video with director Baillie Walsh.

"Baillie started making a video for 'Let There Be Love' and he thought the stuff was so great he convinced us to let him come on the road for nine months, " stated Noel. "I was concerned because the years of kissing the sky and drinking champagne out of cowboy boots at 10am are gone. He just said he'd tell it like it is - and this is it!"

Noel added that a film of the 'Be Here Now' tour would have been very different. "That's the greatest thing I've ever been involved in with the band, "he declared.

"We toured the globe as the biggest band in the world and everything you could possibly want you got two of!"

Noel Gallagher Wore Leathers During Birth

Noel Gallagher reveals that he wore his leather jacket throughout his wife's childbirth at the weekend.

The Oasis guitarist told Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles that he just stood nearby and nodded while his wife was in labour with their son Donovan.

Gallagher commented: "I was there. It was all right for me but my missus was giving me a bit of stick afterwards, saying, 'You never took your jacket off all the way through!'

"I was in my leather jacket, nodding 'You’ll be all right - just get it out before Soccer AM finishes.' I think the worst thing is that you don’t have any specific role. You just stand there and nod."

As reported yesterday (September 24), Oasis are set to release their first ever digital-only single. The track will be released on October 21.

Speaking to NME.COM, Oasis leader Noel Gallagher declared that the track is not simply a throwaway song he had hanging around, but one that he was considering for an album before it got linked to the band's tour documentary of the same name.

"That got left off the last album because it was the same verse all the way until the end," he explained, "but it's kind of locked into that (the documentary) now because it appears at the end of the film."

Gallagher added that he was particularly pleased with the direction the song was taking the band.

"It's quite rocking," he declared. "It's just 12 bar blues really, but it's good."

Meanwhile the film 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' is released on DVD on October 29.

Noel Gallagher Is The Nodfather

Noel Gallagher has talked the nation through childbirth — rock star style.

The Oasis lord has told how he just stood there nodding as girlfriend Sara MacDonold gave birth to tot Donovan on Saturday morning.

He, er, bared his soul about the experience in a Radio 1 chinwag with DJ CHRIS MOYLES.

After Chris congratulated him, the footie-mad rocker joked: “What? for being third in the league?” — a reference to Sven Goran Eriksson working miracles at Noel’s beloved Manchester City.

Speaking about the birth, at London’s private Portland Hospital, Noel added: “I was there. It was all right for me but my missus was giving me a bit of stick afterwards, saying, ‘You never took your jacket off all the way through!’

“I was in my leather jacket, nodding ‘You’ll be all right — just get it out before Soccer AM finishes.’ I think the worst thing is that you don’t have any specific role. You just stand there and nod.”

Noel, who also has seven-year-old Anais by ex Meg Mathews, added: “The baby’s called Donovan. Sounds like a man who means business.”

Noel Gallagher: 'Somewhat Predictably Our New Single Is Brilliant'

Noel Gallagher has spoken following news that Oasis will be releasing a brand new single in October.

Appearing this morning (September 24) on Radio 1 with DJ Chris Moyles, the guitarist spoke about the new release, quipping that "it's coming out on that internet".

Sharing the band's inspiration for the online release, he explained: "You know there's a DVD coming out for Christmas... somewhat predictably. The title track was so brilliant that the powers that be said 'lets just put it out'. And I'm like, 'well we're not ready to do that yet'. So, it was decided it would be a nice thing to put it out for those people who have computers."

Joking about his lack of technological prowess, he stated: "I'm not one of those people, so it's a good job I get my own copy of it, because I wouldn't get it otherwise. I've got an iPod, but Gem sorts all that out for me. That's filth, y'know?"

Meanwhile the Oasis leader also spoke about the birth of his second child, a son, at the weekend (September 22).

After Moyles congratulated him, Gallagher joked: "What? for being third in the league?" - referring to the impressive start to the season his football team Manchester City have made - before explaining he was there for the birth.

"I was there," he explained. "It was alright for me, my missus was giving me a bit of stick afterwards, saying, 'you never took your jacket off all the way through!' I was just in my leather jacket, nodding 'you'll be alright, just get it out before Soccer AM finishes'. I think the worst thing is that you don't have any specific role [as a father at the birth]. You just stand there and nod."

He added that he had named the boy Donovan Rory Gallagher after "his granddad Rory".

Gallagher added: "He's called Donovan. Sounds like a man who means business already."

Noel Gallagher: My Boy Will Be A Legend

He must be the coolest newborn on the ward.

The tot was just hours old when dad Noel Gallagher hailed his son Donovan as a legend.

No pressure then, young man.

The Oasis star sent friends and family a text on Saturday afternoon to announce his baby news.

It read: “He shall go by the name of Donovan Rory MacDonald Gallagher and he will be a legend. Give thanks and praise.”

I assume little Donovan is named after the Sixties Mellow Yellow singer rather than former Neighbours star Jason or LA Galaxy striker Landon.

But the lad was almost handed a more unusual name.

Noel has been joking for weeks he was going to call the kid Sven.

The songwriting hero has become a big fan of the name since Sven Goran Eriksson turned around the fortunes of his beloved Man City.

But his lovely missus Sara MacDonald put a stop to that idea. A pal said:

“During the pregnancy Noel was calling the bump Little Sven. He said he wanted to name the lad after the City boss. Luckily he’s ended up as Donovan.”

Sara’s first baby was born at 11.15am on Saturday at London’s Portland Hospital after a seven-hour labour. He weighed in at 7lb 5oz and Sara insisted on a natural birth.

Noel — who has a seven-year-old daughter, Anais, with ex wife Meg Mathews — is delighted to have a little lad to take to watch City.

And Donovan was born just a day after uncle Liam’s birthday.

Meanwhile, Oasis have signed a new deal with Universal Music Group.

The band control domestic releases through their own Big Brother label but previously Sony took care of international distribution.

Universal now have that role, starting with next month’s DVD release of Lord Don’t Slow Me Down.

After a short paternity leave Noel will be back in the studio to work on the new Oasis album. The lads have been working on the record in London’s Abbey Road Studios.

Noel — who fronts a Radio 1 Legends show at 9pm tonight as part of their 40th birthday celebrations — has described the new tracks as “heavy”.

And the album — expected early next year — will no doubt provide a fine soundtrack for his son’s early life.

Definitely Baby

It's A Boy For Rocker Noel And Scots Girlfriend Sara

Rocker Noel Gallagher was celebrating with his Scots girlfriend Sara MacDonald yesterday after she had a baby boy.

Sara, of Edinburgh, gave birth at 11.15am at a London hospital.

A spokesman said the baby, weighing 7lb 5oz, has been named Donovan Rory MacDonald Gallagher and he and his mum are doing well.

Noel's new son is named after folk singer Donovan and Sara's dad Rory.

The Oasis star was with Sara at the birth. They have been together for seven years.

It is the first child for the couple but the second for Gallagher, who has a seven-year-old daughter Anais by ex-wife Meg Mathews.

Earlier, Noel had admitted he could not wait to be a father again.

He said: "I'm looking forward to seeing a cross between me and my missus because she is gorgeous and I'm a genius - God help ya."

And he even admitted the birth could hold up Oasis's long-awaited next album.

He said: "As Sara is making a baby, that kind of puts most of this year out, I would have thought."

Sara's parents Rory, 72, and Isobel, 64, live in Murrayfield, Edinburgh. Last night, proud gran Isobel said: "Noel phoned this morning to tell us.

"He was at the birth and is feeling fantastic. We're planning to go down to see Donovan but we don't know when until I can arrange time off.

"One of the baby's middle names is Rory after my husband and he's absolutely thrilled."

Noel Is A Dad With Donovan

Noel Gallagher was last night celebrating becoming a dad for the second time.

The couple, who have been together for seven years, have named their son Donovan Rory MacDonald Gallagher.

Noel told pals they called him Donovan after the 60s singer who had hits with Mellow Yellow and Sunshine Superman - and Rory because it's a "traditional Irish name".

It was a natural birth following seven hours of labour. Noel's spokeswoman added: "They are both overjoyed and delighted."

Noel has a seven-year-old daughter Anais by his ex-wife, showbiz party planner Meg Mathews.

On This Day In Oasis History...

Little by Little" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the sixth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. On September 23 2002, it was released with "She Is Love" as the first (and only) double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2002 in British music). Noel Gallagher provides lead vocals on the track.

"Little by Little" was perhaps the most controversial song on the album, receiving mixed reviews from those who felt it was a classic example of an upbeat Oasis anthem and those who felt it was a twee, patronising, sycophantic melody. Regardless of this, the song managed to peak at number two in the UK charts based largely on the publicity garnered by the song.

The promo video to the song featured a guest role by Robert Carlyle. The cover art for the single is an homage to Robert Indiana's LOVE artwork.

On This Day In Oasis History...

"Stand by Me" is a song by British rock group Oasis, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher. It was the second single to be released from the band's third album, Be Here Now, and peaked at number 2 in the UK charts in when realesed on September 22 1997. It was kept from the top-spot by the record breaking Elton John single "Candle in the Wind," re-recorded and released in memory of Princess Diana, who had died in August of that year. Despite this, it still went Gold in the UK.

Though overall, Be Here Now received a cold reception from music critics, "Stand by Me" was acknowledged as one of the stand-out tracks on the album. A critically acclaimed acoustic version of "Stand by Me" was shown on television the night before the release of Be Here Now as part of a BBC1 documentary, featuring Noel, Liam Gallagher and drummer Alan White sitting by the side of a swimming pool, with Liam on vocals, Noel on acoustic guitar and White holding a tambourine.

However, due to Noel Gallagher's general dislike of Be Here Now, "Stand by Me" is rarely played live by the band at their concerts, as it is Noel who generally decides the song listings for Oasis' tours. A live version of the song from this tour can be found on the double-CD version of Familiar to Millions.

Noel Gallagher claims to have written the song whilst suffering from food poisoning when he first moved to London. His mother Peggy would phone him to check on him and repeatedly told him to ensure he was eating properly. This spurred Gallagher to cook himself a proper English Sunday dinner, which resulted in a bout of food poisoning. Gallagher claims that the song's first line - "Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday/I've got a lot of things to learn" - came to him as he lay on the floor and it was then that he began to pen the lyrics to the song.

The title for the song probably comes from the song "Stand By Me", which was covered by the Gallagher's idol John Lennon.

Track Listing

01: "Stand by Me" - 5:55
02: "(I Got) The Fever" - 5:14
03: "My Sister Lover" - 5:58
04: "Going Nowhere " - 4:41

Cassette CRECS 278
01: "Stand by Me" - 5:55
02: "(I Got) The Fever" - 5:14
03: "My Sister Lover" - Some fans believe the title to be a reference to the band

Sister Lovers, a group that invited Oasis to a May 1993 gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were spotted by Creation Records chief Alan McGee, who reportedly offered Oasis a recording contract on the spot after the gig.

"Going Nowhere" - apparently Noel's attempt at a Burt Bacharach style song - can be found on The Masterplan, a collection of Oasis B-sides. It is one of only two B-sides from the Be Here Now era to be included on the album. Although it was not released until 1997, the song was written in 1990, before Noel even joined Oasis, let alone before they were signed. Despite this, it shows an uncanny level of perceptiveness from Noel with lines like I'm gonna get me a motor car/Maybe a Jaguar/Maybe a plane/Or a day of fame/I'm gonna be a millionaire.
