Francis Rossi Wishes Oasis Tried To Last A Bit Longer













Status Quo lead singer Francis Rossi is offering some tough love to defunct band Oasis.

The 63-year-old thinks Noel, and Liam Gallagher, 45 and 40 respectively, should act their age.

“I just wish they’d tried to last a bit longer,” says Francis who is set to give fans access to new footage of Status Quo in a new documentary Hello Quo.

“Are Liam and Noel really brothers? I can understand a sibling rivalry when they’re in their mid-20s but they should be over all that. And if not then what sad cases they are.”

Another On This Day In Oasis History...














Wonderwall is a song by English rock band Oasis, written by the band's guitarist and chief songwriter Noel Gallagher. Released as the third single from (What's the Story) Morning Glory? on October 30th 1995.

Wonderwall peaked at number two in the UK Singles Charts and proved to be their American breakthrough, reaching number eight on the Hot 100 and giving them their only top-ten hit in the US thus far.

Wonderwall is perhaps their most popular song, despite the fact that British TV stars Robson & Jerome's "I Believe"/"Up on the Roof" kept it out of the top slot. Wonderwall continues to have enduring popularity in Oasis's canon; as of 2008, it was 76th in the UK's list of best-selling singles, and has now sold over a million copies in single and download sales in the UK, where it went platinum.

The song is included on Oasis's compilation album Stop the Clocks.

Background

The song takes its name from the 1968 album Wonderwall Music by George Harrison, at the time still a member of the Beatles.[3] Harrison's album was in fact a soundtrack to the film Wonderwall, but the film has remained unknown by the general public. The original title of the track was "Wishing Stone".

It is often claimed that "Wonderwall" was written for Gallagher's then-girlfriend, Meg Mathews. Noel married Mathews in 1997, but the couple divorced four years later. Gallagher now claims that the song was not about Mathews at all, but he felt he had to go along with the rumour, saying "The meaning of that song was taken away from me by the media who jumped on it. How do you tell your Mrs it's not about her once she's read it is? It's a song about an imaginary friend who's gonna come and save you from yourself."

Recording

The song was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, during a two-week recording of the 'Morning Glory' album in May 1995. According to producer Owen Morris, the song was completed in 6-8 hours.

Morris claimed that Gallagher had presented an alternative arrangement of the song "which had some extra complicated pre-bridge bits that didn't have singing or melody - but just had some chord changes - which seemed completely unnecessary", the night before it was recorded. This idea was quickly shelved.

Noel initially wanted to sing this song on (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, but he gave his brother Liam Gallagher the choice, and Noel ended up singing "Don't Look Back in Anger".



















Live performances

Noel debuted the song on UK TV, backstage at Glastonbury and broadcast on Channel 4 on June 24, 1995. The song wasn't performed by the band during their headline performance the night before.

In August 2002, Noel changed the arrangement of his live performances of the song to a style admittedly heavily-influenced by Ryan Adams' cover version of the song. This arrangement has continued to his most recent live performances of the song. When the full band performs the song live, with electric guitars, it's still in the original style as presented on the record. During the 2008 tour, however the band have return to performing the song in a semi acoustic form.

A live version of the song, recorded at Wembley Stadium in 2000, is featured on the band's live album Familiar To Millions.

In an interview with Q magazine in August 2008, Liam said that he hates performing the song: "I can't stand that fucking song, every time I have to sing it, I want to gag. Problem is 'Wonderwall' was a big big tune for us and so you go to America and they're like, 'Are you Mr Wonderwall?', and you want to chin someone."





Video

The music video to the song was filmed in the relatively brief period when bassist Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan quit the band due to nervous exhaustion; Scott McLeod came in to replace him.



Cover art

The sleeve artwork was inspired by the paintings of the Belgian surrealist René Magritte, and was shot on Primrose Hill in north London. The hand holding the frame is that of art director Brian Cannon; the woman is Anita Heryet, a Creation Records employee. The original idea was to have Liam in the frame before Noel vetoed that idea whilst the shoot was taking place.

Chart history

It reached No.2 in the UK charts.

In the US it also peaked at #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart for an unprecedented ten weeks (this amount was later eclipsed in 1998 by Marcy Playground), and reached #8 on the Hot 100.

Awards and accolades

In 1995, "Wonderwall" came in at number one in the national Australian music poll, the Triple J Hottest 100.

The promo video for "Wonderwall", directed by Nigel Dick, won the Best British Video award at the 1996 BRIT Awards.

In the Grammy Awards of 1997 the band received a nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and Noel Gallagher picked another nomination for Best Rock Song, winning none.

In 2003, VH1 ranked the song at number 95 in its countdown of the "100 Greatest Songs Of The Past 25 Years."

In May 2005, "Wonderwall" was voted the best British song of all time, in a poll of over 8,500 listeners conducted by Virgin Radio.

The song "Wonderwall" placed 105 of the 3000 top songs of all time on the website acclaimedmusic.net.

In August 2006, "Wonderwall" was named the second-greatest song of all time in a poll conducted by Q Magazine, finishing behind another Oasis song, "Live Forever".

In 2006, U2's guitarist The Edge named "Wonderwall" one of the songs he most wishes he'd written.

In May 2007, NME magazine placed "Wonderwall" at number 27 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever.

In December 2007, it came in number 35 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's countdown.

In early 2007, "Wonderwall"'s drumming, provided by Alan White, was voted 90th best drumming track ever in Modern Drummer magazine.

Noel Gallagher's Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere (Vol.2) Part Eighty














From Noel Gallagher's 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere' tour diary.

Yes comrades. It's been a while I know. Not sure what was said the last time we spoke. Had a bit of much needed time off. It was great to be sat round the house doing fuck all. Good practice for the future. Back in the States for the last leg of this tour. Think I've got maybe 9 gigs left? Not sure.

Seems to be dragging now though. Been on tour with that band Snow Patrol and that young 'un Jake Bugg - who I believe has had a #1 album back home. Big shout to the little 'un! A #1 album at 18 years of age!! Pretty mad eh? I think so anyway.

Been to Portland and Seattle and . . . can't remember where else. I know I'm up in Canada now. Somewhere on the road to Winnipeg. Somewhat predictably it's - and I can't overstate this enough even with big fuck off capital letters - FUCKING FREEZING - and I mean - FREEZING!!!!!

Wolves, polar bears (of which I'm neither), mad men and the military can surely only experience such weather conditions? Oh . . . and penguins of course . . . and Eskimos . . . and Russians.

It's colder than Margaret Thatcher's blood one would imagine.

ONWARDS.

GD.

Jake Bugg On Touring With Noel Gallagher And More













Jake Bugg has said it's been amazing to go on tour with Noel Gallagher - because he'd never even left Britain until this year.

Ex-Oasis star Noel tracked down Jake to be the support act on the European leg of his world tour after watching the then unknown appear on Later... With Jools Holland.

Jake, 18, said: I'd never been out of the UK before this year - and now I've been to Germany five times, and France three times, plus loads of other places.

"It was incredible. We played 8,000-seat venues each night, and everyone came in to watch me.

"It's not like when you support someone in the UK and everyone's in the bar till the main act comes on."


His debut album entered the chart at number one after facing fierce competition from Leona Lewis' third album.

"I didn't think my album would even get in the top 40, to be honest," he said.

"So to hear that I was battling Leona Lewis for number one was pretty mad. I couldn't really ask for any more."

Jake Bugg's eponymous debut album is out now. He begins a UK tour on November 12.

Review: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Snow Patrol And Jake Bugg In Calgary












It’s been a long time since we rock and droned.

Last night’s co-headline blitz from Northern Ireland’s Snow Patrol and veteran Brit-pop ringleader, Noel Gallagher with his High Flying Birds, paired up for the kind of double-bill that rarely rolls into town.

The groups are massive across the pond, but venues the size of the gawd-awful sounding Corral are par for the course in this part of the world. The shame being that if Snow Patrol is your favourite band, well, you’re seeing them in a venue that simply does nothing but take away from the experience. The Jube, on the other hand, would have been perfect. But what do we know?

In any case, the stark contrast and bright spots for both Snow Patrol and NGHFB were still welcome respites from winter nights.

On a stage lit with colourful floating sharpie lights and a backdrop featuring a variety of animated images, singer and frontman Gary Lightbody led Snow Patrol through a balanced set highlighting last year’s Fallen Empires album.

Following an instrumental mix of Berlin, Lightbody showed his mettle through Chocolate from Final Straw (some would say the group’s finest hour), Take Back The City, Hands Open and Crack The Shutters.

It’s easy to complain of same-iness through the group’s, frankly, patented brand of swirling soundscapes, but, indeed, through six albums Snow Patrol have created a “sound” for themselves. Derivative, perhaps, but you know it’s them.

The group’s main set had yet to conclude at press time, but the group has been hauling out heavy hitters such as Dark Roman Wine, Chasing Cars, Open Your Eyes and Just Say Yes most nights of the current North American tour.

The return of Noel Gallagher was hotly anticipated by most of the 2,500 in attendance at the Corral — and why wouldn’t it be?

The luxury of hindsight was never required to fully understand that he was the heart, soul, brains and creative force behind Oasis.

Sure, he’s a crabby bastard (almost charmingly so) but he’s a ridiculously talented crabby bastard.

The loudest cheers of the night may have been reserved for a number of his former band’s reworked and stripped down covers, but material from last year’s self-titled debut shone equally as bright.

Opening with the Oasis nugget (It’s Good) To Be Free, Gallagher and his mates immediately segued into the NGHFB album opener Everybody’s On The Run to raucous applause and the anticipation of when he might speak ...

“Good evening — hullo,” he began, before carrying on a conversation with one fan near the front of the stage.

“Do I know you? Yah, I know you! Do you live here now? No? Wot’s that? Where? Vagina? Haha, don’t we all?”

At least one overly chatty Saskatchewan fan notwithstanding, Gallagher seemed to be having a good time with the Calgary crowd through skin-tight interpretations of Dream On and If I Had A Gun. Later Gallagher gave his five-piece band a break, holding the spotlight himself through a gorgeously sparse acoustic version of the Oasis monster Supersonic.

Willing to give just enough to the old fans while raking in the new, he ended beautifully with Don’t Look Back In Anger.

Earlier, 18-year-old fellow Brit Jake Bugg opened the evening with a short, tight set for the sparsely gathered masses.

The influence of, er, Oasis can be heard immediately, but standing on stage armed with only a guitar and mic, the kid showed some serious chutzpah through tunes such as Two Fingers, Someone Told Me, Country Song and Note To Self.

Bugg’s self-titled major label debut came out last week and we should all be paying attention. The kid can play guitar like a mofo, sing … and he writes his own songs. Yes, Jake Bugg is the anti-Bieber.

Another On This Day In Oasis History...














On October 29th 2002, Noel Gallagher played an acoustic set set at the Fairplay charity gig at London's Astoria to raise money for the Make Trade Fair campaign.

Below is the NME.COM's review of the night, and a number of videos.

She was then replaced by Noel, who performed a duet of Coldplay's hit single 'Yellow', and Oasis' 'Live Forever'. During the duets, Martin appeared overcome, telling the audience that it was one of the best moments of his life. Their set also included a cover of [a]' 'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before', a song that originally featured on the legendary Manchester group's 1987 album, 'Strangeways, Here We Come'.

On This Day In Oasis History...














Lord Don't Slow Me Down is a rockumentary film, looking back on British band Oasis' Don't Believe the Truth world tour which took place from May 2005 to March 2006. The film is directed by Baillie Walsh. It went platinum in the UK. The DVD was released on October 29th 2007.







Pre-release
A handful of fans-only private screenings took place around the world with the world premiere of the film at the Directors Guild Theater in New York City on November 4, 2006 as part of the CMJ Film Festival. The UK television premiere was on Channel 4 on November 19, at 11:50pm, although it was a heavily edited version with approximately 40 minutes cut from the original 95 minute version. The film was unveiled to coincide with Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks, released on November 20, 2006. A preview of the film was included on the Let There Be Love DVD single, released in November 2005.

The film features a new Oasis song also called "Lord Don't Slow Me Down", written by Noel Gallagher and recorded during the Don't Believe the Truth sessions, Gallagher described it as being "one of the best things, like The Who, The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group combined, and it's got two drum solos on it!". He has also said that his girlfriend thought it was the only Oasis song you could dance to. The song was left off Don't Believe the Truth because Gallagher felt that including it would have meant he'd have been singing too many songs on the record. Italian footballer Alessandro Del Piero also appears in the video signing a shirt for noel.

Disc One:
Documentary tour film Lord Don’t Slow Me Down in stereo and surround sound.

Bid For A Signed Guitar By Former Members Of Oasis And More














A guitar signed by some legendary figures from the Manchester music scene is to be auctioned for charity.

Pop fans will get the chance to bid for the instrument - signed by everyone from The Stone Roses and Noel and Liam Gallager to Elbow and Peter Hook - on e-Bay.

The man behind the project is Altrincham resident Adam Masters who hopes the piece will fetch “at least four figures” for the three respective good causes it’s being auctioned for.

Adam said the money raised will be spent at Francis House Children’s Hospice in Didsbury and Claire House Children’s Hospice in Liverpool - via the organisation Children’s Hospice Arts (Chart UK).

Adam said the auction will run for 10 days from November 1 and he said the item is a “must have” for all music fans.

He said: “I’d seen an article in a guitar magazine - Bryan Adams of all people had done a similar thing with artists like Led Zeppelin and Sir Paul McCartney and The Who. It went for some obscene amount of money. i just thought what’d be really good would be if someone did one for the Manchester bands. We’re the musical hub of the UK.”

The third good cause will be chosen by a mutual friend of Adam and Suzanne whose daughter Lucy died - the guitar is dedicated to her.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the auction should visit here.

Review: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds And Snow Patrol at Rogers Arena













Snow Patrol/Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Roger's Arena

Thursday Night

Noel Gallagher might have told NME magazine in a newly released interview that he doesn’t hang out with musicians because they’re f------ idiots, but that didn’t stop him from joining Snow Patrol for the North American leg of their Fallen Empires tour.

The former Oasis guitarist/songwriter and his new band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds took to the stage with a tight bluesy cover of Oasis’s (It’s Good) To Be Free.

Most of their set was a tidy mix of Oasis covers with a bluesier edge and Gallagher laying somewhat off that nasal falsetto, and a few more tracks from the first NGHFB album.

Gallagher took a moment mid-set to playfully insult some guys up front who were shouting at him. “It’s whose birthday?” he asked. “I don’t give a f---.”

Then after chiding another audience member for bringing a small child into his swear zone, he went into a stripped-down version of the Oasis super-hit Supersonic.

In the years since Oasis collapsed under the weight of brotherly strife, the elder Gallagher has become the grumpy uncle of Brit pop, his curmudgeonly pronouncements no longer particularly shocking — almost charming.

NGHFB is a bit moodier than Oasis, touched with Mikey Rowe’s catchily dystopian keyboard flourishes and Russell Pritchard stepping heavier on the bass. It lacks Liam’s breathtaking disorder but it isn’t, ultimately, that different from its predecessor. Does it have to be? Wouldn’t it be OK for Noel Gallagher to produce more or less the same work, performed with precision indefinitely?

Not to disappoint the fans, they finished with a rendition of Don’t Look Back in Anger that had the sparsely populated stadium standing and singing along.

Co-headliners Snow Patrol took the stage to a dark instrumental remix of Berlin from the Fallen Empires album that gave its name to the tour. An animated sphere projected onto white screens at the back of the stage promised a stark contrast to NGHFB’s low-fi show.

Lit with floating lights, the five-piece from Northern Ireland opened with Chocolate from their 2004 breakthrough album, Final Straw. Where Gallagher brought bravado, frontman Gary Lightbody opened with a self-effacing, “You all right, everybody?” Bouncing around the stage, he eased into the vocal cartwheels he’s known for with Take Back the City from 2008’s A Hundred Million Suns.

He then stopped to thank opener Jack Bugg and his co-headliner at length. As Lightbody leaned in to whisper a secret proposal to the audience, it was clear that Snow Patrol had a different plan for the evening.

Robbie Williams: "I've Never Mended Rift With Oasis' Noel And Liam Gallagher"













The 'Candy' singer admits he has still not spoken with the 'Wonderwall' brothers after falling out in the mid-1990s.

Robbie Williams has admitted that he has never resolved the rift he had with the Oasis brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher.

The Take That star, who released his new single 'Candy' on Sunday (28th October), famously became friends with the Britpop stars in the mid-1990s, before both parties fell out with each other.

During an interview with Shortlist , Robbie suggested that he and the brothers were still adversaries, although he did admit that their wives had contacted each other.

"Not really, no," he replied when asked if they were on speaking terms. "But we rented a place near Noel's and his wife sent us a nice bunch of flowers. I bet she went to a nice school to do a nice thing like that. It was surprising."

Robbie's new album 'Take The Crown' is released next month.

The star's ninth studio album features production from his Take That band mate Gary Barlow.

Noel Gallagher On Reforming Oasis, Beady Eye His Pet Cat 'Boots' And More













Victories in art are difficult to call, but in the wake of the break-up of Oasis three years ago, time has been kinder to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds than it has been to brother Liam’s Beady Eye. It’s no surprise, really. Even within the Oasis lightshow—the sparks from the friction between the Gallagher siblings spanned almost two decades—it was clear that the band’s best songs belonged to Noel. The elder Gallagher is now back in the United States for another leg of a seemingly endless world tour, his first as a proper solo artist. While resting up for this current jaunt in a hotel suite near Lille, France, Noel Gallagher spoke with The A.V. Club about abandoning projects, feeding his cat, working with hippies, and looking like Keith Richards.

The A.V. Club: Listening to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds now, without the distraction from the Oasis breakup, it sounds like it has joy in it, something that might have been missing from the last couple of Oasis records.

Noel Gallagher: Well, the real difference is that I’ve written the whole album. On Oasis records, there were always four songwriters, so you would never get a concise feel or flow. Liam would write a certain kind of song and Gem [Archer] would write a certain kind of song and Andy [Bell] would do the same. Then, you put them all together and try to make them fit as best as you can. This album has a very definite narrative. That’s just ’cause I’ve written it all and I put it all together. I guess it’s just more of a personal statement. But I agree with you. There is a lot of joy on it.

AVC: The trilogy of videos that was released when the album came out was filmed in and around Los Angeles. The album cover photo is of you in front of the iconic Jack Colker Union 76 gas station in Beverly Hills. Were you out to brand yourself anew as a Southern California singer-songwriter?

NG: [Laughs.] It just so happened that all of that took place because of economics. It’s cheaper! All of those things were done while I was mixing the record. I recorded it and mixed it in Los Angeles, so I just happened to be there. I guess things develop their own meanings to certain people. I wouldn’t have even been in the videos if it wasn’t for my management, who insisted I was in them in some way. I’m not too sure I was branding myself as anything. There seems to be a rule that one has to be on the album cover if you’re a solo artist. I don’t know when that rule came in. I certainly won’t be on the next one, that’s for sure. But yeah, there is kind of an American feel to it, visually. It’s a strange one. It’s an odd one. I don’t know what to make of it, because I couldn’t be less American. But everything was done in America. All of it. So, there you go. What does that say? I don’t fucking know. [Laughs.]

AVC: Well, with Thom Yorke moonlighting as a Los Angeles DJ and starting a new band there, Atoms For Peace, it seems like there might be a secret society of big British musicians hiding out together…

NG: Oh, fuck that. I don’t fucking mix with anybody—British or any other musicians. I tend not to hang out with musicians. You know why?

AVC: Why?

NG: Because they’re fucking idiots.

AVC: You’ve become quite a blogger. Your “Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere” diary is a regular feature on The Huffington Post, of all places.

NG: This came about on the last Oasis tour, when the people that ran our website said, “You have to have some personal involvement in this, because you’re like the last band in the world.” We never had any involvement in it whatsoever. We were like, “Fuck the Internet.” I didn’t even have a computer at the time. I thought, “Well, I’m not interested.” They said, “Well, look, can somebody do a tour diary?” I think one of the other band members started to do it and it was fucking awful. It was shocking. So, anyway, as I tend to have a lot to say for myself, it fell to me to do it. It just carried on from there, really. But let’s be under no illusions about what this actually means. It’s just a way of drawing people to the website so I can sell them some shit. That’s all it is.

AVC: Are you just warming up to pen a tell-all memoir? You could probably sell a lot of books.

NG: Everything I’ve got to say, I can say in my music. But I guess once you get into that [Internet] world, it’s very difficult to fucking get out. With the last Oasis album, I thought, “Well, that’s that.” But my management was like, “You can’t stop now. We’re selling these kids so much shit! If you stop, we can’t sell them more shit!” I was like, “Oh. I do like selling people shit…”

AVC: Britain got very nostalgic over the summer during the Olympics, even for its bands. With Blur performing and the Stone Roses reuniting right at the time Oasis has gone missing, does it make you think fondly about the “old days”?

NG: You have to speak to the individual members who get into these reunions. I’m sure they’ve all got valid reasons; it’s not for me to say. I know it’s a thing these days. And I know from experience now that the one way of stopping people from just asking about fucking reunions is to actually do it. And then people stop asking. But I’m afraid I won’t be getting involved in any of that. There’s no need for me. I’m not interested in that kind of a thing.

AVC: It comes up so quickly, too. It’s only been three years.

NG: Yeah! Honest to God, it was about six weeks after I left people were saying, “Do you think you’ll ever get back together?” I was like, “I haven’t even made a fucking record!” It’s like, fuck me! It cost me about a half a million fucking dollars to get out of that band, and then people were saying, “When are you going back on tour?” I was like, “What the fuck?”

AVC: Do you think if you got your record out before Beady Eye did, the appetite for an Oasis reunion might have been quelled for a bit longer?

NG: Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. The thing with Beady Eye is… their singer does them a great disservice. By pronouncing that they will eventually be bigger than Oasis? I was just like, “Oh, dear.” But I think they caught a lot of flak that was quite undeserved, really. It’s only their first album. I think they’ve got a great album in them next time. They need one. They fucking need one, that’s for sure.

AVC: Are you resigned to being asked about Liam for the rest of your life? It’s not like he’s Art Garfunkel and you’re Paul Simon.

NG: [Laughs.] Wow.

AVC: You’re blood. You’re brothers. It’s not like he’ll just disappear and no one will ever ask you about him again.

NG: Yeah, maybe. It’s just one of those things, you know? I don’t mind. It depends what the question is, really. The reunion thing is a bit of a pain in the ass. It’s like, “For fuck’s sake.” What else do people want to know about you? I don’t know. I don’t mind. Ask me a question. I don’t tell any lies.

AVC: Well, apparently your mother and your wife are both practicing Catholics. Do they ever encourage forgiveness, even if it’s for the sake of having Christmas dinner together?

NG: Yeah, I’m sure she’d be thrilled if we did. But really, I’ve got one true failing as a human being and that is, I find it very difficult to forgive people. I accept that, but that is the one flaw in my character that keeps me from being pretty much the ultimate human being. It’s just something I have to live with. I find it very difficult. Particularly if I’ve been sued. I don’t do forgiveness.

AVC: Do you hold grudges? Because forgiveness and holding a grudge are.

NG: Oh fuck yes I do! Oh yeah. I have some grudges that go back to the ’80s.

AVC: Any you’d care to share?

NG: Oh, they know. They know.

AVC: Unlike Oasis, the High Flying Birds is a project you’ve financed yourself. Are you coming out ahead in the deal? Are you done with the old way of doing business?

NG: Oh, yeah! I’m coming out ahead. It’s all gone very much according to plan. The second album [with Amorphous Androgynous] ended up having to be scrapped. That cost me a fortune. I made a tour film, which cost me a fortune, which I also scrapped. But all that being said, I’ve come out ahead. My wife is thrilled about that. She gets a new kitchen. My children are thrilled. They get to go to schools without metal detectors. My cat. He’s thrilled. It means he’s not gonna get thrown in the canal anytime soon.

AVC: What’s the cat’s name?

NG: Boots. Don’t ask. A 4-year-old named him. I would have called him Mr. Whiskers. But there you go. What do I know?

AVC: You just said the album you made with Amorphous Androgynous is scrapped. Is that official, or are you still considering releasing it? 

NG: No, I don’t think it will come out. I’m pleased with the songs. The songs that I did when I was in the studio—I’ll probably re-record them. But the moment has passed, I think. Do you know what I mean? When you have records, there’s a window before their moment passes. I’ve already moved on from that Amorphous Androgynous thing. I’ve written a bunch more songs since then, so I’m afraid—unfortunately—the success of this album killed that one. I wasn’t planning on being on tour for 15 months.

AVC: What’s wrong with it? What don’t you like about it?

NG: Well, it was a record that contains songs that weren’t conventional songs. It wasn’t verse-chorus-verse-chorus. They’re a bit trippy and a bit floaty. My songs, in general, they don’t really rely on the mix. They’re all written on acoustic guitar. They’re as good with me just singing them into the microphone in the style of Bob Dylan as they are with a full band. The High Flying Birds album didn’t rely on the mixes. The songs were there. This was a record that—absolutely, 100 percent—relied on the mixes, because they weren’t songs, so to speak. They were grooves and, you know, there weren’t many chords in them. And the mixes weren’t fucking right. And unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go back in and remix it. And now I’m too fucked. I’m fucked. I’ve been on the road for 15 months. I am fucked.

AVC: Have you considered having someone else mix it?

NG: No. I’m a little bit of a control freak when it comes to my music, unfortunately. I need a holiday. I’ve suddenly started to look like Keith Richards. That’s not good.

AVC: And he’s older than you are.

NG: He’s a hundred years older than I am!

AVC: One could imagine this project fading into obscurity, or lingering in the minds of your fans, like the Beach Boys’ Smile, until you relent and finally release it.

NG: Maybe. I guess there’s lots of things that one could revisit down the years. I don’t know. I don’t even know when I’m going to make another record. Right now, I’m in the middle of touring and it’s taken quite a lot out of me. It depends. If I got in the studio next time and somebody says, “What about that track you did with those fucking hippies?” I might go and listen to it and think, “Hmm. Well, okay.” I don’t know, but I don’t think so.

AVC: What’s it like to come over to the United States now, on your own, without being in “the big band” with “the big tour”?

NG: I’m resigned. No, resigned is not the right word. I’m not going to have another hit in America. I’m not bothered about that. I don’t think anything would stop me from going back and playing and releasing records there. I’ve got a lot of love for that country. I don’t fly across the Atlantic Ocean and wish I was in the top fucking 100, you know? I don’t wish for things like that. All I know is that when I go there, a lot of people turn up, they seem to like what I do, and therefore when it comes to the next time around, I’ll insist on going back there. I’ve grown to love America. In my 20s, I fucking hated it. There were just so many ludicrous fucking rules. But the older that I’ve got, I kind of fell in tune with it. I enjoy going there now. It’s a great place to sit on a tour bus and stare out the fucking window and just think, “Fuck me. You could get a lot more people in here!” Why is the rest of the world so overcrowded? Nobody lives in America! We’re all squashed up on top of each other in London. What the fuck?

AVC: You’re looking forward to it.

NG: I am going to be very good. I’m going to look tired. I’m going to look like Keith Richards. But I am going to be fucking good.

Keane 'Put One Over' Noel Gallagher













Keane loved ''putting one over'' Noel Gallagher at the Q Awards, by beating him to win the trophy for Best Video.

The indie band beat the High Flying Birds musician to the Best Video gong for their track 'Disconnected' at Q magazine's annual awards this afternoon (22.10.12) and enjoyed beating their rival.

Singer Tom Chaplin told BANG Showbiz: ''It's always good to put one over Noel. Although I think secretly he loves us! Although I don't think these events should be competitive really.''

Tom - who is in the band with Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes and Jesse Quin - also admitted he had put some thought into his acceptance speech beforehand, although he promptly forgot what he wanted to say when it came to it.

He added: ''Q is one of the few magazines left that has real artistic integrity. It's nice that they've nominated us as part of that.

''Inevitably I think about what I might say. My brain throws up lots of ridiculous things that I'm going to say and then when I get there they all go out of my head.''

Also at the awards, Blur, Plan B, Johnny Marr, Underworld and many more also picked up awards.

Annie Mac 'Skream And Benga Make Liam And Noel Gallagher Look Like Pussies'














Dubstep DJs more hardcore than Sex Pistols says Radio 1 host

Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac says dubstep DJs Skream and Benga are more hardcore than the Sex Pistols or Oasis ever were.

Mac – full name Annie MacManus – is a successful club DJ away from her Radio 1 day job. Speaking to The Guardian about the art of being a superstar DJ, she revealed the level of excess some of her friends from the circuit exert themselves to. Mac says Magnetic Man stars Skream and Benga are so hedonistic makes Noel and Liam Gallagher "look like pussies". It's crazy, Skream and Benga are like the Sex Pistols!

They are everything that's wild and anarchic about underground music. You know bands like The Who or Led Zeppelin were famous for their excess? It's spoken about, revered. But that's happening every day in DJ world. Even compared to Oasis and what went on at Supernova Heights... mate. Go to Croydon on a Friday night. Skream and Benga are gonna make Noel and Liam look like pussies.

Speaking more about Skream's drinking habits, Mac said: "Skream is some sort of weird bionic man. No matter what he puts inside himself he's always fine and at the studio at 8am the next day making bangers. He often goes four days without sleeping. It's hard for him, too, because everywhere he goes, people are like, 'Shit we have to get ready, Skream and Benga are coming to town'. They're expected to fulfil that role of rock'n'roll party boys. From our perspective, we have one crazy night with them; for them, it's crazy every night of their lives. We always say that Skream's just gonna get really fat overnight. Everything's going to crack. He'll age 70 years because he's put so much alcohol into his system."

Elsewhere in the interview, Mac speaks of her interest in starting a night were revelers are asked to hand in their mobile phones at the door to stop people filming DJs. She also says David Guetta should be praised for "changing everything".

She even pulled some dance moves in the back. They were spotted with Radio 1’s bouffant-haired DJ Nick Grimshaw.

Looks like they all had a wonderwall time.
