Oasis, The Stone Roses & Joy Division Subject Of New Book












Oasis, The Stone Roses, Joy Division and The Smiths all feature in a new book charting the last thirty years of Manchester music.

'The North Will Rise Again: Manchester Music City 1978-2008', penned by journalist and Goldblade frontman John Robb, is published tomorrow (March 30).

The book details Manchester's punk, Madchester and present day scenes and tells the stories of a number of the city's most famous musicians.

Morrissey, Ian Brown, Noel and Liam Gallagher and The Fall frontman Mark E Smith are among the contributors to the book, alongside Johnny Marr, Happy Mondays man Shaun Ryder and the late Factory Records boss Tony Wilson.

"I've spoken to just about everybody. In fact, the biggest problem has been keeping it all down to a manageable size. The book is around 155,000 words long as it is and it could have been double that. Ian Brown gave me 30,000 words to work with!," Robb told the Manchester Evening News.

The North Will Rise Again: Manchester Music City 1978-2008 is written by John Robb and will be published by Aurum Press on March 31.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Now then. Have actually managed to get some much needed kip. 17 hours over 2 nights! It wasn't un-aided, nor un-interupted. 17 hours it was, nonetheless. I feel like my old self. Or a new man. Whatever.

Done some crazy TV show last night called...I can't remember! Big deal though, apparently. Went on for 3 hours! Watching the camera work by the cameramen (and women, y'know, whatever) was amazing. They had it all choreographed like a dance routine. Really brilliant.

Didn't see "The Sign" yesterday. Mr al-Fayed's shoes were hanging around though. They truly are incredible.

Not much else to tell really. No..that's it, I'm afraid. If anything exciting happens, I'll be in touch.

Why You Shouldn’t Accept Marriage Counselling From Liam Gallagher




















He's the big-mouthed Valleys rock ’n’ roller whose wild backstage antics are second only to his hair.

Now, in a new book called Demons And Cocktails, sacked Stereophonics drummer Stuart Cable lifts the lid on life on the road with the multi-million-selling Cwmaman band, from the triumphant highs of their Cardiff Castle concert to the desperate lows of his bitter split from the group and subsequent downward spiral into drink and drugs.

In the first of an exclusive two-parter, Nathan Bevan tunes in to find out exactly WHAT made Tom Jones threaten to knock out Mark Lamarr and WHY you shouldn’t accept marriage counselling from Liam Gallagher.

Stuart became close friends with mono-browed Manchester brothers the Gallaghers – worryingly close, in Liam’s case.

“I was due to play a Teenage Cancer Trust concert at the Albert Hall and was running late as usual when one of the crew greeted me outside the dressing room we were sharing with Oasis.

‘Thank God you’re here, he’s not happy, he began.

‘Who?’ I asked, thinking Kelly was having a cob on again about my punctuality.

‘Liam,’ he replied. ‘He’s waiting for you. He’s refusing to shake anyone’s hand until you turn up.’

When I walked in, Liam yelled: ‘Here’s my man, Stuey. Stuey, come here.’

He hugged me and we sat down at the back of the room where it got even more bizarre.

He had heard that my marriage was on the rocks and turned into my own private agony aunt.

Since his own marriage had also broken up earlier that year, I assumed he now thought he was an expert on the subject of divorce.

Not sure about that, though, given that the advice he gave me was: ‘The first year is the hardest. After that it’s a piece of cake, a walk in the park. Let’s have a beer.’

That was Liam’s version of marriage counselling, but I bet there’s not many people who can boast they’ve had that.”

Who The F**k Wears Legwarmers With Reeboks?? Not This Kid!!














Oasis Liam Gallagher has denied that a 'sighting' of him on Google Street View is genuine.

As previously reported on NME.COM, the singer was 'photographed' by Google, which launched 3D maps of 25 UK cities earlier this month, drinking outside The Queens pub in London.

However, in a post on his Twitter account, Gallagher has distanced himself from the photo, deriding his doppelganger's legwarmers.

"By the way, just saw Google Earth apparently that's meant to be me, who the fuck wears legwarmers with Reeboks?? Not this kid!! LG," he wrote.

Gallagher launched his own fashion label Pretty Green earlier this month (March 18), but last week (March 25) declined NME's invite to model his own wares on the catwalk.

Noel Gallagher And Kelly Jones To Take On The Organising Of The Teenage Cancer Trust Gigs?



Roger Daltrey has asked Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher and Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones to take on organising the Teenage Cancer Trust charity gigs.

"He's asked me and Noel a couple of times to our faces," said Jones.

"If you're in a band and you can help people who are worse off, it's not really much to ask for.

Daltrey launched the annual concerts in 2000. "I would love to find someone from a younger generation to take over from me," The Who frontman has said.

Stereophonics have appeared in a number of the fundraising concerts over the years.

"It's a big job and we're like, 'Come on Roger, you'd do it a lot better than us', and he carries on doing it," said Jones, ahead of Stereophonics headline slot at this year's concert at Royal Albert Hall on Thursday.

Jones said he has still not given Daltrey a serious answer: "It depends how much time it involves. I think it's an important thing for somebody to do.

"I've never really given it as much thought as answering it with a serious tone. We'll see. You see what happens in life."

Daltrey has said he's worried bands will start to screen his calls when the time for the annual gigs comes up.

"He did call me on a private number actually," responded Jones. "I've never been able to call Roger Daltrey back."

'Yearly breakdown'

"I think he does get a bit embarrassed - that might not be the right word - but I think he does know that he's pestering people all the time to do it, but good on him," said Jones.

"I think somebody does need to pester people to do stuff like this, and if he's the one doing it then good on him."

Daltrey, who turned 65 this month, previously told BBC 6 Music he is looking for a replacement, with a view to expanding the concerts on an international level.

"I would like to take the model of what we've done here and concentrate on getting it started in other countries now."

Part of the job involves persuading high-profile artists to take part, which can be tiring: "It does take an awful lot of energy. I call it my 'yearly breakdown'."

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

This is probably gonna be a load of rambling nonsense. It's 5am. I've been awake since 3.30am, I only went to bed at midnight!! Feel like that dude in that song by Faithless. I can't get no sleep. It's killing me, man.

Not a great deal going on either. The gigs in Osaka were quite run-of-the-mill. Unenjoyably-run-of-the-mill.

"The Sign" (I shall now refer to it from now on as "The Sign") was there. Down the front. Bright as a button. NOEL OR DIE.

Went to Tower Records yesterday. They still have amazing record shops out here. It was quite early so it was virtually empty. I'm in there 2 mins and on comes 'Stop The Clocks - The Best of Oasis' really fuckin' loud over the in-store PA.

"Ah..just what I wanted to hear".

I'm trying to ignore it and one of the little-uns comes up and asks for "my sign, please!", while pointing to the ceiling, very pleased with himself. "Thanks for that".

Bought 5 albums. All shit. I won't name names. I was just taking a punt, so to speak.

I'm fuckin' starving. I'm gonna order breakfast... Done, be here in 30 mins.

Bought a guitar yesterday. A Gibson SG. It's a new one. A re-issue of the George model. Not the ACTUAL model, but near enough. Looks good. Plays good.

Talking of guitars, I'm getting a bit concerned about my main one. The big red one. It's suddenly started to sound a bit old and tired. And it will NOT stay in tune. It is nearly 50 years old though. Might have to stop using it for a while. Bit worried, to be honest. I'm quite literally fucked without it.

We're traveling back to Tokyo today (but we've just come from there, surely?). 4 more nights there and that'll be it. Mind you, always a pleasure on that bullet train.

Incidentally, I was watching summat on BBC World the other day about them bullet trains and apparently since they went into service in the 60s, the average delay time..in almost 50 years..is 6 seconds. SIX SECONDS over 50 years!!?? And they've only had one derailment and that was during an earthquake!! Staggering, eh? No? Well, it is at 5am!!

Breakfast will be here in 11 seconds. Gotta go.

In a bit.

Liam Gallagher: Mild At Heart

















Former bad boy Liam Gallagher tells Charlie Carter how he's settled down and grown up. Well, mostly ...

By his own admission, Brit-pop superstar Liam Gallagher is a reformed character.

When Oasis visit Hong Kong for a gig next month, gone will be the wild man who was banned from flying with Cathay Pacific for an airborne punch-up on a flight to Perth after their first show in the city in 1997 and in his place will be a calmer, more mature Gallagher who prefers a night indoors to one out on the town.

"I've done my partying," the former hellraiser says. "I like to be with the missus and our kid. We just go round people's houses or they come round to ours."It's a far cry from the young upstart from Manchester who rose to fame in the mid-1990s with a band that blazed bright at the vanguard of a newfound British rock euphoria, the banner-wavers of the Brit-pop sound.

Although there was little new about Oasis' musical style, theirs was the first British pop in a long time that swaggered. Songs such as Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger and Supersonic, although lyrically meaningless, had an ambition about them that ideally suited the times.

Adding to the myth was Liam and his songwriting brother Noel's penchant for fighting and partying. Rarely did a week pass when they weren't splashed over the tabloids for coming to blows in public, making outrageous statements or rumours of rampant drug ta!

Most prominent was their public rivalry with fellow Brit-! poppers Blur, which came to a head in 1995 when both bands released comeback tracks from new albums on the same day in what was billed as the "Brit-pop wars". Oasis lost that battle - Blur's Country House beat the Mancunians' Roll With It to the top spot - but with more than 10 million albums sold, they eventually won the war.

These days, it's Noel who tends to grab the headlines with his carousing. "Noel is out on the piss all the time," Liam says by telephone a day after a gig in Milan, part-way through the band's world tour promoting new album Dig Out Your Soul.

"Him and his missus like hanging out with all the comics and things like that."The suggestion that the younger Gallagher may have gone soft raises a few bristles and sees him regain his cockiness for a moment: "Listen, mate, I'm not teetotal. I have calmed down a little bit without a doubt. But not too much, I hope." And regarding that airline incident, he is resolute: "I don't regret anything," he says. "We did a show and went on the piss, you know what I mean? No one got hurt.

"The Gallaghers' relationship remains one of the oddest in rock. They fight in public, more than once resulting in Noel walking out on the band. Their credibility in the US was wrecked twice when the band cancelled tours after rows, one of which ended with Noel stomping out and a second that saw Liam refusing to leave Britain and instead go flat-hunting in London.

Today, Liam admits the two rarely fraternise outside of the band."We don't go for walks in the park. We don't go for brunches or lunches or whatever," he deadpans in his Mancunian drawl.

"That's the way it is - he's a different person from me, I'm a different person from him. We both live in London and, yeah, I could just go round his house, but I don't want to. I don't feel the need to go round and see my brother's head. And I'm sure it's the same for him."

Guitarist Gem Archer has also noticed a difference in the once-warring Gallaghers."There's a definite maturity that's becoming more apparent," says Gem, who! joined the band 10 years ago. "We've all got kids and we're all in it for the right reasons. It's about the music, not the money or the fame.

"It's not just the Gallaghers who've changed - the band is a whole different proposition from the snarly youngsters who burst on to the scene in the 90s. When they play the AsiaWorld-Arena on April 7, they'll be promoting Dig Out Your Soul, which has won critical acclaim for moving the band away from the so-called Oasis sound of Beatles-influenced melodies with an indie feel.

Archer attributes this to the band's new drummer, Chris Sharrock, who took the stool from Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, and to the recording process for Soul."This album was a really easy process - from top to bottom in seven weeks," he says. "We didn't demo it, and it takes time to be able to do that. There's a certain amount of telepathy you need to do that."They have even changed their tune regarding old rivals Blur, who have reformed eight years after guitarist Graham Coxon walked out, leaving singer Damon Albarn to front the band.

"I'm happy that they're back together, 'cos then they can hopefully get rid of the Kaiser Chiefs," he says. "Now that I've grown up a little bit and got wiser, I'm happy for them, to be quite honest." He doesn't plan to be at their comeback gigs, though: "I don't think I'll be welcome. Me and Damon are all right, but I just don't want any of their fans getting heavy with me.

"The present tour, as planned, presented Oasis with a few more milestones. One not likely to be achieved, though, will be their first gigs on the mainland. The four-piece had been due to play in Shanghai and Beijing before performing in Hong Kong, but those shows were cancelled. The band say it's because Noel performed at a Tibetan freedom concert several years ago, a charge Beijing denies.

One thing they will achieve, however, is their first all-stadium trek around Britain, playing football grounds such as Wembley. It's a big deal even for! a band that filled Knebworth - a huge venue - for two nights !in 1996, playing to an estimated 500,000 people.

"Initially when we put out the dates, I thought 'I hope someone knows what they're doing here'," says Archer. "And when they all sold by 3pm, it was pretty breathtaking. Playing stadiums is the ultimate buzz. It was a dream when I was in London, busking."Liam is less philosophical: "I play small gigs, I play big gigs, I play really big gigs. It's all the same to me."But one gig he won't be playing is Glastonbury.

Although the band was welcomed at the British festival with open arms early in their career, their last appearance, in 2005, was a shambolic affair marred by a lacklustre performance and jeers from the audience."No, I'm never playing that place again," Liam says. "It's s***. I don't like it, it's full of idiots and paparazzi taking pictures of you when you're out of your head, know what I mean? That's no good. I don't like the sound either, the f***ing sound system is s***."

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

That girl was waiting for me at the airport. With the sign. "NOEL OR DIE". What does it mean!? I did try and ask her, sadly all she was interested in was a bloody picture. I then used the tried and tested English method for international communication; I asked her really ..slowly.

"WHAT ...DOES ...IT ...MEAN?"

She looked at me like The Mighty I looks at me when I'm asking him something.

"THE SIGN ...WHAT ...DOES ...IT ...MEAN?"

She replied very slowly with two simple words.

"SIGN? ...YES"

That's got to the bottom of that then, eh? I'm glad I AM Noel though. Wouldn't want to die, or anything.

We're in Osaka for the next 3 days. What can I tell you about Osaka? Nothing. I bought a guitar here once.

With that in mind, I think I'll order breakfast and get out and about.

Liam Gallagher: 'I Won't Take To Catwalk For New Label'



Singer declines NME's offer to strut his stuff

Liam Gallagher has dashed hopes he will launch his new fashion label Pretty Green by taking to the catwalk himself.

In this week's issue of NME, on UK newsstands today (March 25), we take a look at the Oasis singer's new fashion line, find out the star's plans, plus look at the possibility of the label launching with a fashion show.

To encourage Gallagher to take to the catwalk himself, Gallows singer Frank Carter even provides some advice following his stint at a fashion show during London Fashion Week in February.

However, responding to the article via his Twitter account, the frontman has declined the option to strut his stuff.

"Just been reading the NME about me doing a catwalk to premier(e) prettygreen," he wrote "No fucking chance! LG."

It is yet to be seen whether Pretty Green will launch with a fashion show, but the label's first collection is due this summer.

Liam Gallagher Gargling On Google














Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is snapped having a beer at his local — by Google’s new mapping service.

The 36-year-old singer can be seen enjoying a leisurely pint with a pal on Street View.

Liam even spots the Google camera car taking his photo and points at it. Like all members of the public his face is obscured by Google for privacy reasons.

But Oasis fans insisted the man outside The Queens pub in Camden, North London, last June was Liam.

Eagle-eyed Craig Cooper, 45, spotted him while trawling through the revolutionary site in search of stars.

Craig said: “If there’s one man you’d recognise having a pint, it’s Liam Gallagher. He’s often in The Queens. He must be the most high-profile celeb to be caught on Google Street View.”

A band spokeswoman said last night the figure was “very possibly” Liam.

His brother Noel, 41, said the pair were “stuck in London doing nothing” in June after England failed to qualify for Euro 2008.

Liam can be found on Google Maps by typing in 49 Regent’s Park Road, London.

Craig has set up a Facebook group called The Google Street Mystery hoping others will track down stars.

Campaigners Privacy International have complained about Street View to the Information Commissioner over people being identified.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Been in Sapporo for the last couple of days (did I mention that?). It's snowing. SNOWING! Thought we'd left the winter behind in Europe. Apparently not. Seems like we're being haunted by the cold on this tour.

Gig was good. Uneventful, but good. I say gig, they're more like concert performances over here. You can hear a pin drop between songs.

Played that song "Whatever" for the first time in.. what.. 12 years? Bizarrely enough it's our most famous song in Japan. The kids are always mithering for it. Dunno why I decided to play it last night. Guess it means I'll have to play it every night now.

Went out to watch the Liverpool-Aston Villa match after the concert last night. At an IRISH BAR!! They're everywhere. I bet there's one in Kabul. Liverpool won 5-0, as I remember. Every time they scored, the DJ in the bar played "You'll Never Walk Alone" by Gerry and the bloody Pacemakers. 5 times he played it!! 5 TIMES!! Good times though.

We're flying to Osaka today. Now, in fact.

Before I get off, tell me what you think of this.. There's been a fan following me around since I got here carrying a sign that says, in fluorescent lettering, NOEL OR DIE! Now given the fact that the Japanese have a certain way with the English, I'm still not quite sure what it means. NOEL OR DIE!??

In a bit. GD.

PS. As I'm sending this I'm watching some "human beat-box battle" on Japanese telly. Human beat-box? Human cunt-box, more like.

The Enemy's Tom Clarke Covers Blur And Oasis At Secret Manchester Gig



Frontman sips tea and munches on homemade cake at the show

The singer played a range of covers during his set, and you can watch his version of Oasis' 'Half The World Away' (interspersed with snippets of Inspiral Carpets' 'This Is How It Feels') by scrolling down now.

Playing Manchester's regular Saturday tea party at the TV21 venue, the free gig was a civilised affair with audience members offered homemade cakes and tea in China cups.

Hosted by Inspiral Carpets organist Clint Boon and his wife Charlie, the tiny room was filled to capacity for the short set that included tracks from The Enemy's debut album.

Featuring former singles 'We'll Live And Die In These Towns' and 'You're Not Alone', the short set also included a cover of Blur's 'Tender'.

Talking to NME.COM before the show, Clarke revealed why he and his bandmates decided to play their 'secret' tour of the UK recently.

"We get a massive buzz out of it, like when we first started out. When you're doing pub gigs and little things like this, it's just you, the mic and then the person in the front row and it's proper intimate," he explained.

"When you can see into someone's eyes when you're singing it's amazing. Although there is a lot to be said for massive venues, ultimately these types of gigs are what I get off on the most."

In Manchester to play two sold out nights at the Academy and accompanied by bandmate Andy Hopkins, the duo still found time to sign autographs for fans at TV21 – as well as sample some of Charlie Boon's homemade cakes. They then headed off to soundcheck at the Academy.

The Enemy played:

‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’
‘Tender’
‘You’re Not Alone’
‘Half The World Away/This Is How It Feels’

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet

Arright'dare, la'.

That bullet train malarky was most enjoyable. The sight of Mount Fuji was, and indeed is, always amazing. Majestic, in fact. A bit like that new Kasabian album. But then I am biased.

Had a mooch round Shinjuku yesterday. What a day'n'all. The sun had his hat on, let me tell you.
Jet lag's a killer, man. Was well spaced out all day.

Bought a colossal jacket. For real. Can't work out how much it was though. I'm shit at maths. It was from Stone Island so I'd be amazed if it wasn't about 5 grand!!

I see City went through to the last 8 of the UEFA cup. With a whimper. Typical. At least we got there though. Shay Given, I will kiss you on the face if we win it - which is a ludicrous thought. Still..best start thinking of what to do if we actually get in the final.

Just done a round of interviews in which I was asked to explain what I thought has gone wrong with the global economy!! Apart from the fact that the global conspiracy theorists have seemingly been right all along, we managed to trace back the actual moment the storms clouds started to gather to when Franz Ferdinand won the Mercury Muzak Prize. THINK ABOUT IT.

Well, that gig was rubbish. Ring rust maybe (not that there's any rust round my ring, you understand!). Dunno. That's 3 shit gigs in a row for me now - if we're counting the Radio 1 / BBC stuff last week, which I am. This is worrying. No one else seems to be that concerned though, maybe it's just me, eh?

Not much happening after the gig. Everyone's a bit sleepy. Which is a joke 'cos you simply cannot sleep in this country. It's mental. No wonder they're always inventing gadgets. No-one ever sleeps. They've got to do SOMETHING.

Am currently on a bullet train speeding like shit off a stick into the future! Tokyo, to be exact. I love Tokyo. Great kids. Mad as custard.

Anyway..enough. I'm off.

Liam Gallagher: We're The Best Band In The World












The last time we spoke to Oasis, Liam Gallagher said he’d come up with a perfume called Mad Ferret if there was new line of work he could do. But some six months down the road, when we mentioned that to him, he thought we were mad.

In fact, don’t even suggest that there’s anything else he’d rather do than be in Oasis (even if you’re right and you’ve got the tape recording to prove it).

“Not interested in anything that’s not Oasis,” he said over the phone from London. “Oasis is my thing. I was born to be in Oasis. I was born to make Oasis the best. That’s what my goal is.”

Part of that goal is touring for their current hit album, Dig Out Your Soul. They have a scheduled stop in Singapore on April 5 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The album — one of the best albums of last year, declared Britain’s NME magazine — has sold over 1.6 million copies worldwide since its release last October, and is the latest feather in the cap for a band that’s sold more than 50 million records and has had eight Number One singles in Britain.

“Them songs are amazing (sic),” said Gallagher, adding that he couldn’t wait to show off the new album to the audience here.

“I love the music. I love playing it. I love going around the world, seeing the fans and stuff. I can’t wait to get back there.”

You guys played Singapore about three years ago. Can you remember what that show was like?
You know what? I can never remember that far back. I imagine that it was a good show. At least I thought it was good. Er, was it any good?

I thought so. How’s the tour going so far?
It’s been going really good, we’re playing really well, I’m singing really well. I think we’re rockin’. If we’re all well and I haven’t got a sore throat or anything, then it’s all good as far as I’m concerned.

Have there been any Spinal Tap moments?
I mean, being in a band with your brother is Spinal Tap, full stop. It’s always Spinal Tap.

What can we expect this time?
Well, you’re going to see the best rock n’ roll band in the world, as far as I’m concerned. I mean, we’re not daft, we don’t jump around and get our socks off. We’re not like Guns N’ Roses. We know what we’re doing. (But) you want people to join in, don’t you, and feel good. That’s the kind of band we are.

We’re not a band of miserable arty-farty outfit. We want people to get in and have a lot of fun. It’s all good, mate.

Do you get bored singing the early stuff?
I like everything to do with Oasis. Otherwise I wouldn’t do it, know what I mean? No, I don’t get bored at all. I mean there’re days when you get bored — full stop. It’s got nothing to do with music. It’s to do with life in general.

So no more sex, drugs and rock n’ roll?
I dunno. What do you reckon? I’m definitely into the sex, and I’m definitely into the rock n’ roll, but the drugs, well ... I can do without.

Do you miss your kids while on the road?
Well, they do their thing and I do my thing, but I’ve found that after three weeks, I start getting a bit mental and I want to go home. When you get older, you start appreciating your family more. But this is what I do, this is my job. I’ve got to pay the bills.

You consider being in Oasis a job?
Of course, it is a job, but it’s the best job in the world.

What’s your philosophy?
Just don’t think about it.

Describe Oasis in less than 10 words.
The best band in the world.

As a performer...
(Interrupting) I don’t see myself as a performer. I’m not. Robbie Williams, Mick Jagger — they’re performers. I’m just a rock n’ roll singer. I sing songs and that’s the end of it.

What’ll you do when the music’s over?
It’s never going to be over. But who knows, mate? Hopefully, we’ll all be well. And keep producing great music. I’m never going to split this band up. I love it. I’m having such a good time.

Do you want to continue playing forever, like The Rolling Stones?
I don’t want to be like anyone. I want to be like Oasis. If we’re fit and keep writing good music, then that’s what I’m going to do till I die. Forget the Stones, who gives a s**t about the Stones?

All Aboard To Tour Your Local Oasis














Some Might Say it’s been a long time coming.

But finally a music tour honouring and exploring the history of Manc music stars Oasis has been launched.

For £10-a-head, fans can be guided around landmarks in the life of Burnage’s most famous sons, Liam and Noel Gallagher. Sights on the two-and-a-half-hour tour include where the brothers went to school, where they first rehearsed together as a band and the record shop where they bought singles from.

The bus tour was the masterplan of Inspiral Carpets drummer Craig Gill who already runs a series of Manchester Music bus and walking tours alongside music expert Phill Gatenby revealing famous locations in the history of bands including Joy Division and The Smiths.

But Craig is more qualified than most to wax lyrical about Oasis - as he knew Noel from the days when he was then just a budding musician who ended up becoming the Inspirals’ roadie after failing to win a place as the band’s new singer.

The band, originally called The Rain, even re-named themselves Oasis after seeing the name on a poster of Inspiral Carpets’ tour venues.

Craig explains: "I first met Noel when he came up to me in the Hacienda and told me he was a fan of the Inspirals and gave me a cassette of him playing acoustic guitar. He was still working for the gas board back then.

"When our singer left in 1988, we asked him to come for an audition but we were after something really specific, so to break it gently to him we asked him to come and be our roadie, but he became more or less the sixth member of the band. But then he joined up with his brother and formed Oasis."

Craig gave a sneak preview of the tour, which will launch on June 6 ahead of the band’s huge Heaton Park gigs, but is available for private bookings before then.

The tour will take in sites including Cranwell Drive in Burnage, where the Gallaghers grew up, Fog Lane Park where they used to play football and shot early videos.

It also includes perhaps the most famous fan landmark - Sifters Record Shop on Fog Lane Burnage - where the lads used to buy singles, and credited in Oasis’s 1994 song Shakermaker with: "Mister Sifter sold me songs, When I was just 16."

Shop owner Peter Howard says he still regularly gets Oasis fans from across the world wanting a picture with the famous "Mr Sifter".

He said: "I remember the Gallagher lads used to come in the shop quite regularly. I read that they apparently pinched some singles from here, but I don’t remember that myself.

"I still get fans coming in - only yesterday a group of Japanese fans came in for photos."

The tour bus also stops off at the former Boardwalk nightclub on Little Peter Street in the city centre - where the fledging Oasis would rehearse seven nights a week, and where now a blue plaque commemorates the venue with the words: "Madchester venue, nightclub and rehearsal rooms".

Craig said he’s been surprised by how much interest there has already been in the tour. He said: "I put up some details on our website about the Oasis tour ahead of their Heaton Park gigs and there have been enquiries from across the world. I guess if people are coming all this way to watch the band play, they are interested to see where the lads grew up, where they played football, where they bought their records from too."

Liam Gallagher, Fashion Designer: 'The Skinny Look Is Shit'



Liam Gallagher has posted a new video online explaining why he's started his Pretty Green clothing label.

Scroll down now to see Gallagher talking about what clothes mean to him, and why he hates the "skinny" look favoured by the likes of The Horrors and The Strokes.

In the video, which was posted on Prettygreen.com, the Oasis man says his disappointment in the current men's clothing market was one of the factors that lead him to start Pretty Green.

"I'm just doing it [launching the clothing range] because there's a lack of…the stuff I want. You can't really get it," he said. "I'm not gonna be putting anything out unless I'd wear it."

The singer also laid into what he called "the skinny look", saying he hopes Pretty Green will force a change in the style's popularity.

He ranted: "I'm not into the skinny look. These skinny things. That's what I'm here for, to fucking get rid of that shit. You know them shoes that just come at you like a fucking snooker cue?! It's like, leave it out man! You got a license for them bastards or what?!"

Gallagher can also be seen inspecting a pair of 'Pretty Green' shoes in the video, declaring them "fucking tasty".

The star joked at his Oasis bandmates would only get to wear the clothes "if they get their hands in their pockets".

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Now then. How is everybody? Not that I give a shit, just being polite.

We're in Japan. I've got quite a soft spot for this mob. Who hasn't? Lovely little fellas, they are.

Got thrown out of a taxi this morning. At least I think I did. Hard to tell over here. There was shouting and pointing and then the international hand signal for "Get the fuck out of my cab, you western dog!"

Jet lag will put a downer on the gig tonight. I already can't be arsed. Nevermind. They've got Yorkshire tea bags on the rider which, let's face it, is all that matters to a 40 year old Northerner.

Oasis Score Grandy Prize



Bartle Bogle Hegarty won top honors at the 2009 International Andy Awards tonight, receiving the Grandy, which comes with a $50,000 cash prize, for the integrated campaign "Dig out your soul in the streets" for Oasis.

Promoting the band's seventh studio album, Dig Out Your Soul, from Warner Bros., the campaign introduced the new music on the streets of New York City, where band members taught street musicians to play their songs for two weeks leading up to the release last fall. In addition to the guerilla effort, the launch included a digital push that distributed a documentary about the New York event through MySpace.

"It's become very clear that new thinking in new media has replaced traditional 'advertising' executions," said Mark Waites, creative director, founding partner of Mother in London and chairman of this year's jury. "Clients and their agencies are becoming adept at embracing unusual approaches, concepts and [media] to transport their creative vision into work that makes viewers take notice and respond."

Droga5, New York, was the only multiple U.S. gold winner, taking home two gold statues for the Sara Silverman-starring viral video for the Jewish Council for Education and Research called "The Great Schlep." The other U.S. gold winners were Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco, for the Comcast spot "Rabbit," Crispin Porter + Boguksy, Miami, for the Burger King "Whopper sacrifice" digital campaign and Wieden + Kennedy, Portland, Ore., for the Coca-Cola commercial "It's Mine."

Droga5 also took home two additional prizes, the Richard T. O' Reilly Award, which honors public service announcements, and the Innovation Award, which celebrates forward-thinking work, both for the "Million Project." Created for the New York Department of Education, the campaign inspired students by engaging their interest in cell phone technology and interactivity. It included collateral, a Web site and PR.

The Miami Ad School Europe won the Glenn C. Smith Scholarship in the student competition.

The awards were held at Terminal 5 here tonight.

Made Fer It













Liam Gallagher has done more for the cagoule than anyone else during his 15-year stint scowling at crowds from stages across the globe.

So I’m not entirely surprised to learn that the bellowing Burnage boy is going into the rag trade.

The dapper Oasis frontman is launching his very own clothing range and has called it Pretty Green in tribute to his favourite track by Mod rockers The Jam.

And in his typically outspoken style, lippy Liam is magnificently blunt about why he has decided to branch out.

He said: “The reason I’m doing it is I like clothes. We’re going to do clothes I like. If people like it, cool. If they don’t, they don’t.”

The limited menswear range will feature everything a Jack the lad could want.

It will include classic designs across footwear, denim, knitwear, jackets, trench coats, parkas, T-shirts, hats, scarves and accessories.

Blunders

And the frontman is taking a hands-on approach to his new range.

He added: “If you’re going to do it, you’ve got to get involved. I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be good.”

The collection is due to hit select shops in June.

Liam and Noel inspired an army of teenage lads over the last 14 years to have the same barnet, sideburns and clobber.

But not all of Liam’s threads have caught on.

The John MotsonO-style sheepskin coat he wore to the Brits in ’96 was a sweaty reminder of the band’s over-indulgence at the time.

And the leopardskin slip-on shoes he’s showing off at the moment went down a treat with my gran.

I doubt you’ll see many lads at The City Of Manchester Stadium wearing them this season though.

Ask Liam Gallagher Anything You Want



Ask Liam, Join the Pretty Green community to ask Liam Gallager anything you want!

Pretty Green is an up-front, straight talking, classic clothing range owned, founded and designed by Liam Gallagher.

The clothing range, which is entirely 'limited edition', will include classic designs across footwear, denim, jackets, trench coats, parkas, t-shirts, knitwear, hats, scarves and accessories; all subject to Liam's final approval.

Todays Question:

Hey Liam! I've got a pocket full of pretty green, what should I be buying first?
- A guitar
- A tiger tattoo
- These Pretty Green clothes
- A new set of vocal cords for your live shows to make you sing like back in the 90's
- The fastest car on the market before you go berserk on that last line

I know Liam won't be reading this, but whoever does: given the chance to ask a normal question, Liam would have had a laugh too.
