Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's Tour Diary for oasisinet.com

Can't get shut of this fuckin' cold. A major-major pain in the arsehole. Still, it does mean one can legitimately drink before going onstage. Whiskey, hot water, half a lemon and a splash of honey (a Hot Toddy they call it - handsome!). Helps make it fun, at least.

Incidentally, I hate that word, 'Toddy'. It makes me feel uncomfortable, that and the word 'latte' AND the word 'bonkers'. The latter almost drives me to violence.

We're in Belgium. I have no idea why. We're supposed to be in France. I'm in a hotel in Brussels. Called the "Amigo"? How very..erm, Spanish. Added to that I have a fuckin' didgeridoo in my room!! A fuckin' didgeridoo? It's a cultural mess. It's absolutely bastard bonk..oh, fuck off!!

In a bit.

Noel Gallagher On Manchester City, Georgi Kinkladze, His Dislike Of Liverpool Football Club And More











He’s one of the most famous musicians on the planet and a lifelong Blue – at last, City Magazine managed to track down Oasis’ Noel Gallagher to dispel a few myths and create a few new ones in the first part of our exclusive, epic interview…

Eight years. Eight long years of emails, phone calls and third party messages before –finally – an interview with Noel Gallagher. If there’s been one thing I’ve wanted to do since first becoming City Mag editor back in 2001, it was to talk with Noel on behalf of our readers and return with the definitive Manchester City/Oasis interview. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that, as a huge fan of the band since the early 1990s, talking with the man who wrote such classics as Live Forever, Don’t Look Back In Anger, Masterplan and Cigarettes and Alcohol is something I’ve always wanted to do anyway.

We’re the same age, grew up a mile apart and both follow City – sadly, that’s where the similarities end. But we had enough in common to be able to speak easily and after a surreal hour on the phone, I replaced the receiver on the handset and checked the tape and listened, relieved that it was all successfully recorded. It was also comforting to discover Noel is no different from me or you and I could have been chatting to an old mate about the Blues. Laid-back, candid and frank as usual – with Noel Gallagher what you see is what you get and he’s as passionate about being a City fan today as he was 35 years ago when he first fell in love with the club.

The thing most people like about Noel, aside from his obvious talent as one of the best singer/songwriters this country has produced since the Lennon/McCartney era, is that he almost always talks sense. True, he puts things bluntly, but when you’ve been raised on a Burnage council estate in the seventies, attended a tough secondary school and had to battle your way from the dole to become the brains behind the best band this country has produced in 20 odd years, you tend not to put on airs or graces. Indeed, with more than 50,000,000 albums sold worldwide, he can pick and choose who he talks to – or doesn’t – so my opening words to Noel are to thank him for giving up his time and then mention I’d be trying to get this interview for the past few years.

“Really? I’ve never been asked before,” he says. That means all my previous requests never actually got past the first few hurdles, but it’s at least comforting to know that it wasn’t the man himself snubbing the magazine because it seems clear that had he been asked sooner, he’d have almost certainly said yes.

Now is a good time to talk. Noel was due to fly out to Las Vegas with Liam to carry Ricky Hatton’s belt into the ring prior to the fight with Paulie Malignaggi before embarking on a world tour that will eventually see the band return home with a massive concert in Heaton Park next summer.

With the excellent new album Dig Out Your Soul continuing to sell in big numbers, Oasis have proved they will be around for a long time, as will Noel and Liam’s association with Manchester City. I ask Noel where and when it all began.

“I’d got it in my head that my first game was in 1971 when we beat Newcastle 5-1 at Maine Road, but I’ve recently looked that game up and it was actually January 1975,” he says. “ I was seven at the time and the only goal I can remember from that match was Malcolm MacDonald scoring for Newcastle with a shot that struck the underside of the crossbar and went in – I remember that vividly. I always mention that game as being my first in interviews so I thought I’d better check that the game was actually played in 1971 – but the only time we beat Newcastle by that score was 1975. It’s possible I could have gone to a game before that date but that’s the first game I can recall.”

Thirty years of despair could have been avoided had Noel’s dad Tommy fallen in line with the rest of the Gallagher family and gone to Old Trafford instead of Maine Road, but Gallagher senior was nothing if not a rebel and decided to buck the trend.

“Being from Irish decent, all my dad’s side of the family – apart from dad and his three sons, me, Paul and Liam – all support Man United – there’s about 200 of them and four Blues,” laments Noel.

“I’m not sure why he decided to support City. I think, romantically enough, it was because City were our local team. We were born in Longsight and as we all know, the other lot don’t come from Manchester. We could walk from Longsight to Maine Road in about half-an-hour, too. Aged seven, you’re not sure which way you stand up, let alone which football club you support, but being at the match fascinated me. There was a bit at the end of the Kippax where the railings went from the corrugated shed bit at the top right the way down to the bottom near the pitch. It’s where all the dads used to put their kids and that’s where my dad sat me. There were loads of other kids around the same age and dad would come back for us at half-time and again at full-time – and that was it – you don’t get that anymore.

“Dad didn’t take us every week, but then we moved to Burnage which seemed to be predominately a City area. We moved from St Robert’s in Longsight to St Bernard’s in Burnage and that’s where things sort of took off.

“On a clear night, you could see the floodlights at Maine Road from my bedroom at our new house and there’d be times when City were playing in midweek and I’d be listening to the match on Picadilly Radio and I’d look over to the floodlights and think, ‘they’re playing there – it’s all happening here.’ It was the time when they’d interrupt a record between match reports with ‘It’s a goal!’ or “Oh no!’ – I used to dread the ‘Oh no!’ in case it was City that had conceded one.”

Noel and his brothers Liam and Paul soon began to trek the three miles or so to Maine Road from their home on Ashburn Avenue and when their mum Peggy separated from their dad, going to the game with their mates was the only way of guaranteeing their weekly fix of the Blues.

“I think the first time we went to the match on our own would have been when we started secondary school at Burnage,” continues Noel. “There were a few of us who used to go – I can’t remember the other lads’ names because I haven’t seen them for years – but there was about six or seven of us and it used to take us about an hour to walk to Maine Road. I’d have been in my very early teens at the time.”

Did the Gallagher brothers ever have dreams of playing for the club they followed or did Noel know from an early age his future lay elsewhere?

“Was I any good at football?” he ponders. “I guess before Claude Makelele made that role his own at Chelsea they used to call it the ‘Gallagher role’ in Burnage – but he nicked the title from me. I used to be the holding midfielder before that role had even been invented – I may have even invented it, you know.

“I was never that bothered about being a centre-forward and I used to go in goal a lot as well, but I kind of figured out I’d see more of the ball in midfield. I wasn’t big enough to play in defence or up front so I ended up somewhere in the middle. Liam was a dirty goal-hanger, of course.”

So while his own career and reputation seemed to be confirmed to Cringle Fields in Burnage, the City players lived out his dreams at Maine Road every other week. His heroes – apart from The Beatles – are a mixture of industry and artistry, with the odd surprise thrown in for good measure.

“I was fortunate enough to see the likes of Colin Bell, Dennis Tueart, Mike Summerbee, Gary Owen, Steve MacKenzie, Paul Power and Joe Corrigan and I remember us playing in the sky blue round-necked kit.

“Initially my hero was Bell, then Tueart, then Peter Barnes and we were struggling a bit after that. Then Barry Silkman comes along and he had a bag of tricks so I didn’t mind him, either. Paul Stewart, maybe – the first striker in years who’d scored 20 goals for us and we promptly flogged him. I never really got into David White – I didn’t rate him at all.

“Then it wasn’t until Georgge Kinkladze later followed by Ali Bernabia nd Shaun Wright-Phillips came along because we weren’t really blessed with a great many heroes in between.”

Because Noel finds it hard to get up for home games these days due to work and family commitments, he tends to find it easier to go to away games south of Birmingham, but there was a time when he never missed a match.

“Between 12 and 21 I used to go religiously,” he recalls. “The first season after we’d been relegated in 1983, I went to every single game, home and away. In those days, there was a great facility for football fans to travel around the country because half of us were on the dole so we’d get into Maine Road for half-price as well as get cheap train travel with Inter City specials, so following football in the early eighties wasn’t that expensive. Plus in the old Second Division – or whatever they call it now – most of the teams were up north anyway. There was nothing to do all week so it was quite easy to jib a train to Huddersfield, Bradford or Barnsley and all that caper.

“I used to know a few of the Maine Line Crew, Young Guvnors and the Under-5s. I knew all that lot and still see a few of them today. They were quite mad times, but if you look back to how football was back then to how it is today, it seems almost pre-historic.

“You see the stadiums of today and they’re all shiny and flash, but the grounds we used to go to 20 years ago were dangerous, especially night games at Leeds and places like that and wondering whether or not you’d make it home in one piece. It’s all part of growing up, I suppose.”

Considering what the future held, did Noel ever create songs for the Kippax to serenade the team?

“No,” he laughs. “I did start a song in the Kippax once when I’d had a drink, probably something like, ‘Everywhere we go…’ or similar and everyone joined in. I thought, ‘This is brilliant! So maybe the first seeds of my song-writing career were sewn at the back of the Kippax because I did get a taste for the sing-along after that.”

Whether swaying on the Kippax back in the seventies did inspire Noel or not, his own path to stardom began when he decided to teach himself how to play the guitar and he would later join Liam’s band The Rain after his experiences with another local band who maintain a cult status in the north-west.

“We started off Oasis in 1991 and before that I’d been a roadie with the Inspiral Carpets,” he says. “I think Graham Lambert was an Oldham fan, as most of the band was. Clint Boon wasn’t that bothered as I recall, but I always think of Oldham fans as virtually City fans anyway – I don’t think I’ve ever met an Oldham fan who didn’t say, ‘Well, I’m really a Blue anyway, I just live too far from the ground.’

“When I first met them I think we were in the First Division, but of course, were up and down all the time, but whenever we played Oldham, we always used to get beat by them at home – without fail.”

Considering the Lennon/McCartney hero worship, did Noel ever contemplate becoming a Liverpool fan as a kid?

“Actually,” he says, “my dad used to work in Liverpool for a time and he occasionally went to Anfield as well. I’ve got a lot of mates who are Liverpool fans and I love scousers, but I have to say Liverpool FC get on my nerves, particularly over the past 10 years.

“They’ve spent fortunes during that time, but only ever had two good players in Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard – now they’ve got three with Fernando Torres and it looks like they are going to win the league.

“I think the dislike probably all stems from the seventies and eighties when Liverpool used to come to Maine Road and, they wouldn’t just beat us 1-0 or 2-0 – it was 4-0 every time – they always hammered us at home.

“Funnily enough, I was out in Ibiza a few years ago and I met Kenny Dalglish’s son, Paul and I said ‘Your dad’s a legend, mate,’ so he told me to hang on while he got him on the phone for me. Paul called up his dad and I was on his mobile to Kenny for ages.

“I told him I used to dread his name being read out before the match and Kenny told me Liverpool used to love playing at Maine Road because the pitch was massive and it was one of the best stadiums around. The atmosphere was always great, the fans were fantastic and he said it was a shame it’s not there any more because it was a great place to go and play football.

“I told him that that was all well and good but it wasn’t any fun for City fans, especially when our own team never quite mastered playing on that pitch!”

Ironically, it would be Liverpool who relegated City just after Oasis had played their sell-out concerts at Maine Road in 1996.

At that time, the club and the band were happy to cross promote each other with each happy to declare their admiration for the other. Photo opportunities, concerts, clothing – for a time, music and football merged and with Oasis on the verge of world domination, it was a marriage of convenience for all parties.

“It was great,” says Noel. “It all really started when City were sponsored by Brother and we were just starting to get our heads in the papers. Photographers were forever asking us to wear the City shirts with Brother on and I think the first real connection with the club stemmed from there.

“We did some famous photos with Kevin Cummins wearing those shirts and by the time we did our first Japanese tour, everybody seemed to have them on. They must have thought they were Oasis shirts or something and a while later I asked Franny Lee how many City shirts they’d sold in Japan and he told me the club had been constantly sending out mail orders after being inundated with requests.

“There were hundreds of kids at the concerts and some of them would make huge banners with just the Brother logo written on – I think they must have thought it was something to do with the band, but I’m not sure what they made of the ship and red rose on the club badge on the shirt – they must’ve wondered what’s all that about.”

So was there a collective decision by Oasis to openly support City, bearing in mind the possible consequences from some of the potential record-buying public?

Says Noel: “At first it was like, well, we’re going to alienate at least one half of Manchester in one fell swoop – but then we thought, so what? They’ve got enough, plus a load of trophies and we had nothing – City fans had nowt – so we nailed our flag to the mast.”

There were numerous walks out onto the hallowed Maine Road turf by Noel and Liam and it wouldn’t be unusual to see the lads at Adams Park or Bootham Crescent as they followed the club - now in freefall – around the lower reaches of the third tier of English football. But as Noel points out, the farther off the radar City slipped, the bigger the crowds became!

“I always think of that time as the re-birth of Man City, where, for some reason, the whole City fan base seemed to regenerate itself. I thought at one point we’d go under because we were in the Third Division and if you’re aged four or five, who’s going to want to support the Blues?

“It must have been embarrassing going to school, but for whatever reason, the lower we went down the Third Division, the higher the crowds became. Whether Oasis had played a part in that, I’ve no idea. I used to go to a lot of away games that season because I lived in Buckinghamshire and City used to play in places like Wycombe, Colchester and Reading so it wasn’t a problem. It was like, ‘Oh well, I’ve never been to Bournemouth and it’s the only chance I’ll get in my entire life and City are playing there tomorrow so we might as well go.”

The arrival of one of Noel’s all-time heroes, Georgi Kinkladze,, also coincided with the club’s demise.

“We’ve always had players like Kinkladze – that one sparkling genius – the trick is getting that type of player, plus six others that will allow him to play. At United they had David Beckham, but they also had Roy Keane and that’s what we need now – somebody who can le the Brazilians do their stuff.

“I remember when Gio first came. I got a call from somebody within the club to say that we’d just signed a Georgian and I asked who it was, but he couldn’t even pronounce his name. I asked whether he was any good or not and this guy told me the club had bought him on the strength of a video of him playing for Georgia against Wales, who he’d apparently torn to shreds.

“I flew up from London to see his debut against Tottenham and sat next to Terry Venables, who was doing some commentary or something.”

Famously, Noel was quoted as saying that, after watching Kinkladze’s debut, City would either win the European Cup or end up in Division Four. Unfortunately, he was almost right,, too – though it was the worst case scenario that very nearly came to fruition!

“I watched Kinky for the first time and it was like, ‘Jesus, this is either the most frightening thing I’ve ever seen or it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen,” he laughed. “I couldn’t decide which one it was! You’d only get that at City.

“Then, a few years later we get Ali Benarbia and it was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ My brain’s a bit frazzled now, but if I had to pick anyone from the modern era that I thought was a genius it would be Ali.

“I think he turned Shaun Wright-Phillips into a world-class player – Ali and Shaun under Keegan were outrageous and they were playing a type of football you only see at five-a-side. That team we had with Berkovic, Ali, Wright-Phillips and Shaun Goater played some of the best football I’d ever seen – admittedly in a lower division – but at times we were unbelievable.”

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's Tour Diary for oasisinet.com

Now..I know there's a world financial crisis going on, but I went for a Chinese the other night in Oslo, right - and guess what? No fortune cookie! What the fuck is all that about? How is anyone supposed to plan for future events pertaining to one's personal situation if you don't know what the future holds? If the Chinese can't afford to put cryptic analysis of future events (with lottery numbers) on a strip of paper inside a bendy-biscuit then we are well and truly fucked!! I wonder if Obama can sort that?

Talking of whom - I see me and him are going head-to-head for an NME award. Burnin' Natty sent me a full colour page piece they ran about it in the Manchester Evening News. Ganja Prince remarked that it looked like a boxing promo poster. Apparently Obama's people have asked for a framed copy to put in the bog at the White House!

We were in Stockholm last night. That band The Caesars have been opening up for us the last few nights. I've liked them for a while. They've got a few good tunes and 1 fuckin' belter called "Kick You Out". And a very smart, very good drummer.

The crowds are getting younger and younger. Kids! Actual real kids.

Been watching MTV a bit on this tour (don't ask me why?). That Justin Timberlake is in nearly every fuckin' video - even his own! Does he ever have a day off?

France today. Dunno where. Some city that sounds like a baby-girl's name.

Mange tout, and all that.

Noel Gallagher's Chord Change




















Noel Gallagher reckons playing guitar steered him away from a life of crime.

The Oasis axeman, who lived in the Manchester suburb of Burnage as a child, tells Total Guitar magazine: “All the lads on the council estate I grew up with, apart from the ones that have settled down and have kids, they’re all still drug-dealing, going out being ****ing idiots.

“So, let’s put it this way, there’s one less criminal in Burnage because I picked up the guitar. There’s one less shoplifter in Manchester.”

The rockers are set to have some fun in the sun this summer — they’re headlining Spanish festival Benicassim.

They join Kings Of Leon, Franz Ferdinand and Paul Weller on a bill that’s shaping up rather nicely.

And organisers promise more big names will be revealed in the next few weeks.

The bash takes place on the east coast of Spain from July 16 to 19.

Oasis, San Miguel and sunshine — now that’s a summer holiday.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's Tour Diary for oasisinet.com

Where've we been since last time? Fuck knows. Gothenburg last night. That much I do know.

Met up with some old friends. From that band "The Soundtrack Of Our Lives". They were dj'ing at some club. Pretty fuckin' rowdy, as I remember. Think there was a definite Viking element to the evening.

Met the Swedish cultural minister last night! Bit of a dude, by all accounts. Lord knows what shit I filled his head with. Sven Goran Eriksson probably.

Just on the way to Oslo. Norway.

I like Scandinavia . Very clean.

I must go. I think I'm starting to ramble.

In a bit.

PS: Still trying to get to the bottom of who had 1 glass of Port and a packet of cheese and onion crisps in Amsterdam the other night. Everyone's taking the 5th. The smart money's on the guy from Q Magazine though. We may never know.

Liam Gallagher Toasts The Rifles



London four-piece The Rifles have been getting expert advice from rock gods Paul Weller, 49, and Liam Gallagher, 36.

The lads who release new album Great Escape this week, recently spent a weekend in the Big Apple.

Guitarist Luke Crowther, 27, told me: "We were doing a gig in New York with Paul - and Liam was in the audience.

Noel Gallagher: "I'm Average At Fucking Best"




















Oasis guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher has declared that his guitar playing is "average at fucking best". And his mate Paul Weller even agrees, calling Gallagher's playing "rudimentary".

The two discuss guitar playing in an exclusive joint-interview in the new edition of Total Guitar.

Gallagher says of his playing: "It facilitates what I do in Oasis, know what I mean? I'm unfortunate enough that two of my best mates are Johnny Marr of The Smiths and Paul Weller. Those two are virtuosos to me although neither of them would admit it. On the electric guitar they're it. So if you're asking me how do I compare to those two – and I like to compare myself to the greats – I'm average at fucking best."

No "guitar god"

"Bless him, but his playing is rudimentary," reckons Weller. "But Noel doesn't pretend to be a guitar god. He's very good at putting chords together and he's got a distinctive style in terms of his chord sequences and his rhythm playing. It's recognisable, I suppose…"

MusicRadar might disagree, to a point. These three Oasis tracks, at least show that Gallagher is a talented player with a brilliant ear for melody.

Live Forever
There's nothing particularly complicated about the playing, but this is a melodic solo in the best sense – you can almost sing it.

Rocking Chair
A rare acoustic solo by Gallagher, surprisingly fleet-fingered and with some effective alternate picking

Slide Away
Though Gallagher admits to channelling the spirit of Neil Young for this Definitely Maybe track, when played live he extends it with some impressive bluesy bends and motifs.

Or are we being kind? Is Gallagher a good guitar player, or just a decent songwriter with limited playing talent?

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's Tour Diary for oasisinet.com

Urgh! My head hurts today. Had a bit of a smash-up last night. Where? But an Irish bar of course. Me and Cool Prophet were the last ones left at it - again! So I got left with the bar bill - which I've just found in my pocket. It reads as follows:

29 pints of Guinness
16 pints of Strongbow
6 pints of Jupiler (whatever the fuck that is!)
4 pints of Heineken
3 Gordon's gin
5 Sauza Tequila
12 Bacardis
11 Vodka Stolis
14 Jameson whiskey
10 Bushmills Malt
16 bottles of Coke
7 bottles of tonic
4 7-Up

...and this is the killer: 1 glass of Port and a packet of Cheese and Onion crisps!!??

All came to a colossal €708.40. Bargain.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Bored of Amsterdam now. Been here 3 days. Far too long for my liking. Still got another show tonight. And a fuckin' day off here tomorrow. There's not a great deal to do here at the best of times but it's particularly grim in the middle of winter.

Glad that Kaka business is over. Somewhat predictably he didn't fancy it. The fuckin' newspapers are having a field day with City at the moment. It's getting boring.

Talking of the papers. Did anyone see that story of Oasis allegedly meeting Tom Cruise in a hotel in Berlin?! Ludicrous. The mind boggles at where these stories come from. Pure nonsense.

Q magazine are with us for a couple of days. At least it'll alleviate the boredom. I like doing interviews. I find myself having opinions on things I truly couldn't care less about. I wonder what they'll ask me about this time? Blur re-forming, I suppose. We'll find out soon enough.

Oasis Resume Tour After Liam Gallagher's Throat Problems













Oasis returned to the road last night (January 22nd) in Amsterdam, just two days after singer Liam Gallagher was advised by doctors to rest his voice.

The band were forced to postpone a gig in Düsseldorf, Germany on Monday (January 19th) because the singer developed fluid on his vocal chords.

However, after resting his voice for 48 hours, Gallagher and the rest of Oasis performed to a sold out crowd at the Heineken Music Hall last last night.

The band's European tour continues tonight (January 23rd) at the same venue, before calling at venues around Europe.

Charges Upgraded Against Man Accused Of Attacking Noel Gallagher Of Oasis



Crown prosecutors have upgraded the charge against a man accused of attacking Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher at a Toronto music festival.

Forty-seven-year-old Daniel Sullivan is now charged with one count of aggravated assault - he was originally charged with assault. Aggravated assault can carry a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison whereas the maximum penalty for assault is five years.

Last September at the Virgin Music Festival, a man ran onto the stage during Oasis' performance and tackled Gallagher from behind.

In a media interview after the incident, Gallagher said he suffered three broken and dislodged ribs after falling onto his speakers.

Sullivan's case is back in court March 6 for a pre-trial hearing.

Noel Gallagher: "Manchester City Will No Longer Be Playing Second Fiddle To No One"




















At the best of times, being a Manchester City supporter is to say the least, testing.

After years of playing second fiddle to a neighbouring team, isn't it about time we, Blues fans cast aside the torment of playing a so-called backstage warm-up act and featured as the main performer?

Money does not bring prizes, or in our case, trophies. Garry Cook has done everything in his power to bring one of the world's finest players to Eastlands, in this case, Kaka. Ronaldinho shunned us in the summer, but who will be next?

Mr Bellamy (second string signing) is to replace Jo as one of our strikers, yes a proven goal scorer, but having played for eight previous clubs, will Craig be the City saviour?

Noel Gallagher said on Radio 5 Live (Tuesday 20 January) that Mark Hughes needs to be given time, although he doubts he'll be the manager come the end of the season. If that is the case, who will come to our rescue, Garry Cook?

Within my lifetime, I can predict one thing. Manchester City will no longer be playing second fiddle to no one, including those crawling around the Swamp. Me, I'm only a whipper-snapper at 45, but I can go to my bed rest assured that as long as a breath, Manchester City, (and within a short space of time) will be looking down at the Rags and others in the so-called top four with contempt.

We are still in the hunt of winning the UEFA Cup. We are still in hunt of finishing within the top eight in the Premier League. We are still in the hunt of signing the best players in the world. We are City.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





When was the last time I sent one of these? I can't remember. Berlin maybe? Fuck knows.

Had to blow the show out in Dusseldorf yesterday. Romeo's lost his voice and can't sing. Think it's already been re-scheduled for sometime in the next week or so.

It does mean we get 2 days off in Amsterdam though (every cloud'n'all that, eh?).

I'm not a massive fan of the 'dam. It used to be pretty laid back and serene in the 80s. It just seems to be full of c***s these days. They all seem to be English and all. Ended up in some Irish bar last night (what would the world be without Irish bars?). Playing pool and getting pissed. It seems me and Cool Prophet are the pool masters.

Dunno what to do today. Go for a walk and get high, I suppose. Or get high and go for a walk?

Decisions, decisions..

Liam Gallagher Kisses And Makes Up With Tom Cruise














Tom Cruise has achieved the ultimate Mission Impossible by making Liam Gallagher eat his words.

The actor’s long memory makes up for his short frame as the Oasis star found out when Tom quizzed him about anti-Cruise comments in 2006.

The pair bumped into each other at the Regent Hotel in Berlin where Tom was plugging film Valkyrie and Liam, 36, was preparing for a gig.

Tiny Tom, 46, asked him about his documentary Lord Don’t Slow Me Down, in which the Manc said: “I hate Tom Cruise. I can’t stand that small bastard – him and Michael Owen.”

The baboonesque warbler’s monobrow drooped as low as Tom’s head as he awkwardly reminded Cruise that he also said: “I really like Cocktail.”

Awkward laughter ensued before Tom flashed his glow-in-the-dark gnashers and shook hands with Liam.

Cheeky

Our German spy choked on his sauerkraut as he guffawed: “For the first time in his life, Liam was lost for words. Tom did a double-take as they passed each other and went back to say hello.

“And without losing the smile from his face, he reminded Liam about the cheeky comments he’d made.

“They made polite conversation and Liam made a hasty departure.”

Our source said: “Fans feared for Tom’s safety. But the only fall-out was between Liam and Tom.”

Fortunately, Liam prevented World War III by raising his white flag.

Valkyrie’s casting of Tom as Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg, who was executed for plotting to assassinate Hitler, has been criticised by Germans.

Next Oasis Single Revealed











Noel Gallagher gets a pal to help out on band's next release

Gaz Cobain from The Amorphous Androgynous has been asked by Noel Gallagher to remix Oasis' next single, according to his MySpace blog.

Cobain says he recently received a call from Gallagher asking him to remix 'Falling Down', which he says will be the next Oasis single.

"Noel Gallagher rang in to the Automobile Association headquarters personally today, and what a thoroughly nice chap he is too," Cobain wrote. "He wants us to remix the next Oasis single, 'Falling Down', from 'Dig Out Your Soul', giving us carte-blanche to do what the fuck we want."

'Falling Down' has already appeared in remix form on as single, with The Chemical Brothers' version of the track backing comeback single 'The Shock Of The Lightning'.

In his official Oasisinet blog, Gallagher called The Amorphous Androgynous' 2008 album 'A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Exploding In Your Mind (Vol 1. Space Rock)' "one of the best things I've ever, ever heard".

Cobain also revealed that Gallagher had ordered ten copies of the album to give to friends as Christmas presents.

"Two of the 10 went to Paul Weller and the geezer in Kasabian," he wrote on MySpace.

The Amorphous Androgynous are now set to DJ at Oasis' aftershow parties when the band plays London's Wembley Stadium this July.

Oasis Dusseldorf Concert Postponed













Oasis have been forced to postpone tonight's sold out show at the Philipshalle in Dusseldorf on medical advice. Liam Gallagher who has had a sore throat for the past few shows was examined by a doctor this morning.

The concert has been rescheduled for the 4th of February. All tickets will remain valid for the new date but ticket holders may apply for refunds from the point of ticket purchase.

Oasis are disappointed that they cannot continue with tonight's show as planned and would like to apologise to their fans for the inconvenience.

Abhisit Vejjajiva Is Mad Fer It!














Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva is no old fogy when it comes to music, telling an audience that his favorite bands in 2008 were Oasis, Guns 'N Roses and The Killers.

Speaking at a dinner at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand on Wednesday night, the Oxford-educated Abhisit said he really liked the comeback records of Oasis and Guns 'N Roses. He added that there were a lot of new bands he liked, including the Artic Monkeys' side project The Last Shadow Puppets.

"When I look around the room, a lot of you were born too early," he said when asked about his top musical picks for 2008. "The Killers new album is good, and there were very good releases last year, comebacks from Oasis, Metallica, even Guns 'N Roses."
