Alan McGee And Pete MacLeod In Talks To Make Sweet Music













Scottish singer / songwriter Pete MacLeod, seems set for even greater success on the back of his recent tour in Hamburg with gigs across the UK's 02 venues in  the coming months.

The musician and his work have long been admired by Alan McGee, who famously founded Creation records and now appears to be itching to set up another label, as Pete explains:

"Alan and I had been talking all week about him getting back into  the music business and starting another label, and I could tell he really had that fire in his belly again.

"We've talked about it before but he's told me his intentions are to get me signed to his new venture - I can't say much more than that at the moment but I do know that Alan won't be calling it Creation. I broke the news on twitter about us planning to work together and go back into the music business and it was almost instantly picked up by the press."

In the meantime, Pete is in the process off signing a single deal with a German label. Something that Alan McGee fully endorses in a recent email to Pete:

"Whatever form my new record company will take I can say I can't see it being called Creation.

"In the meantime, work with this dude and if you need me to come over and DJ the launch for single I am in as long term I want to work with you when we know what we are inventing as a business model."

It's good news for Pete following a year of turmoil while his father battled cancer. Pete had returned to Scotland when he heard the news and wrote 'Rolling Stone' for his dad who had inspired so much of his music. The single was sold as a way to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK; it was named BBC Radio Scotland single of the month by Janice Forsyth and entered into Q magazine's top 50 downloads of the month.

Sadly, Pete's dad lost his brave battle with the disease in June, but Pete has no doubt that his father's influence and guidance will live on in the form of his music for many years to come.

"My dad always believed in my music and never stopped encouraging me to write and play the music I love. While I'm sorry that he won't see this next stage in my career, I know he'll always be with me and that's what keeps me going."

Another On This Day In Oasis History...













Below are a few videos from November 28th 2006, when Noel Gallagher played an acoustic show at the Le Cabaret Sauvage in Paris as part of the promotion for Stop The Clocks.

Performing in front of his smallest UK audience for years, Gallagher backed by Gem Archer on guitar and percussionist Terry Kirkbride, played a mixture of acoustic B-sides and album tracks.









Check out the current collection from Pretty Green's AW13 collection here.

On This Day In Oasis History...













Let There Be Love" is a song on the British rock band Oasis' sixth album, Don't Believe the Truth. Written by Noel Gallagher, it is the second Oasis song to feature Liam and Noel on lead vocals, the first being the B-Side "Acquiesce". It was released on November 28, 2005 as the third single from the album in the UK, and the second single in the US. It reached number two in the UK charts, capping a very successful year for the band. Many critics cited this song as proof that Oasis had returned to form we had seen in the mid-90's.

A demo for the track was recorded during demo sessions for Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. A bootleg of these demo sessions was leaked onto the Internet in early 2000. This track was given the unofficial title "It's A Crime" on many bootlegs as the track was unknown and unreferenced anywhere before then. The album version of the song is structurally almost exactly as the same as the demo with a slight change in melody in the part that Noel sings. The lyrics to the chorus remains intact, but the verses and bridge have totally rewritten lyrics.



















The single version of the song omits the second verse and chorus.



A second, Noel-sung demo was released on the "Let There Be Love" DVD single. It has the same lyrics as the album version, and in fact the album version takes some elements from the demo such as the piano. It was probably recorded sometime in 2003 or 2004, prior to the main Don't Believe the Truth recording sessions.

The video is a montage of some of Oasis' live shows during the summer of 2005 including clips of the gigs at Hampden Park and the City of Manchester Stadium. The clips don't actually show the band playing 'Let There Be Love'.

The song has only been played live once, on an Italian radio show in late 2005.

Liam Gallagher Comes Out As Anti-Fur













Oasis singer's Pretty Green label has joined animal rights organisation PETA

The former Oasis frontman's fashion label Pretty Green is completely free of animal fur, and the company has now joined animal rights charity PETA's list of fur-free fashion labels.

In an e-mail sent to PETA, Pretty Green's chief executive officer confirmed that the company has a strict no-fur policy and that it will now label any faux-fur trim on its garments.

"We are delighted to add Liam to the list of truly talented visionaries and trendsetters who are able to design stylish, fashionable and popular clothing without the use of fur," says PETA's Senior Programme Manager Yvonne Taylor.

Gallager's a long proponent of animal rights. After reportedly signing up as the face of charity Pup Aid back in 2010 he told The Sun he'd be a crusader for dachshunds: "Extinction of sausage dogs? I will prevent that! When I’m back in England I am gonna buy 900 of them. I am gonna prevent them from downfall."

However, he was less doting on his four-legged friends when speaking to NME earlier this year. "I like winding me dogs up," he said. "I just stand there with the lead, shaking it for ages until they're shitting and peeing all over the floor. And I'm stood there going: 'Walkies!' Then I sit back down again."

Noel Gallagher Plays Guns And Roses At Rolling Stones O2 After Party













Noel Gallagher was up to his usual tricks at the Rolling Stones after-party — as he whipped a guitar off the wall to entertain revellers.

The former Oasis star, 45, was warned by staff at London’s O2 Arena for taking a memorabilia guitar so he could play Guns N’ Roses classic Sweet Child O’ Mine for his pals.

Noel, who has gone solo since 2009, had gathered with other celebs — including The Sun’s Gordon Smart — in a bar after the Stones gig when he had a run-in with security.

And he didn’t stay out of trouble for long — staff had to step in again later when he tried to smuggle a surfboard out of the party.

Noel has a history of taking home “souvenirs”. At a Brit Awards after-party in February, he left with a giant novelty shoe.

A picture of Noel with the guitar can be found here.

Gallery: Noel Gallagher At Winter Wonderland



With a first name like Noel, there's a good chance Christmas is a fun time for the rock star.

And Mr. Gallagher certainly enjoyed a jingle bell rock with his family in Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland.

The 45-year old rocker took his son Donovan, 5, along with his partner Sara MacDonald to the launch of the London attraction.

They chose a colourful attraction that the little one couldn't be more excited to ride, and his father seemed just as eager.

Other famous faces enjoying the new Christmas park were Rod Stewart and Nell McAndrews.

The Sailing singer brought his wife Penny Lancaster, 41 and his two kids - one-year old Aiden and six-year old Alastair.

It's not known whether Noel bumped into any of the other celebrities but Penny certainly crossed paths with Nell as they both took their sons on the helter skelter.
It's hard to place Noel's recent comments on drug use with this picture of familial bliss.

For whilst the Gallagher clan enjoyed some traditional Christmas merriment, he told Alan Carr on his pre-recorded Catty Man TV show that he wouldn't mind his kids using narcotics 'in moderation.'

He sparked a flurry of Twitter chat with people weighing in on his progressive comments.

And he was met with criticism by users such as Fleetstreetfox who tweeted her article with the comment, 'Noel Gallagher - not the sharpest tool in the box. Probably all those drugs'.

But the thick-skinned rocker would hardly let a tweet like that ruin his festive fun.

Check out the pictures here.

Noel Gallagher's Walking In A Winter Wonderland












Oasis legend Noel Gallagher showed his softer side by taking son Donovan to a new Winter Wonderland attraction.

The Wonderwall songwriter, 45, enjoyed playing Daddy with partner Sara MacDonald at the launch in Hyde Park, London.

Also having fun were rocker Rod Stewart, 67, wife Penny Lancaster, 41, and their brood.

The couple’s two sons Alastair, six, and one-year-old Aiden got stuck into the festive activities. Penny and Aiden had a whale of a time on the helter skelter, while Nell McAndrew also went along for the ride with son Devon, six.

Other famous faces at the event included X Factor stars James Arthur, 24, Christopher Maloney, 34, and boy band Union J.

Model Kate Price, 34, and her daughter Princess Tiaamii, five, were also there.

Winter Wonderland will be open until January 13 and the attractions include a “Magical Ice Kingdom” of sculptures, a circus, ice rink, rides and a chance to visit Santa.

Noel Gallagher Refuses To Take Driving Test












This makes me feel slightly better about being a remedial driver.

The 45-year-old rocker - who has sons Donovan, five, and Sonny, two, with wife Sara MacDonald, as well as 12-year-old daughter Anais with former spouse Meg Matthews - is being forced to take lessons by his spouse, but is so determined not to legally be allowed behind the wheel, he says he will deliberately fail if he ever sits his driving test.

He said: "My lovely wife is insisting I take driving lessons. She said, 'Who is going to take the boys to the football?' And I am like, 'Well you are.' But I have sussed it, you see. If I ever qualify for a test I will deliberately fail. I would rather be in the passenger seat. I would crash a lot of cars. I have had 40-odd years looking out the window."

The former Oasis guitarist also admitted his rock 'n' roll lifestyle means he isn't too keen on his sons reaching their teens but he won't advise them to stay away from smoking and drugs completely - so long as they remember one thing... Spouting his nuggets on Alan Carr: Chatty Man tonight (10.00pm, Channel 4), he said: "I am dreading them in their teens. My attitude is everything in moderation, but I have told them, 'You will never be as cool as your dad'." Ah, every teenager's red rag. While you're at it, tell them they'll never amount to anything and watch the megalomania set in.

As it happens, Noel's partying days appear to be behind him, what with the rough heads he gets nowadays: "I find hangovers dreadful now. Terrible. It's called age. I usually wake up still drunk and when I go out to get the papers I wonder which way the traffic is going (no wonder he doesn't want to drive). The longest bender I have been on? I went three days without sleep once and ended up in hospital but that was a good party."

I won't tell you the longest stint I've stayed up, it's not advisable. The one nugget I will dispense, however, is the following. Learn to drive before you get pregnant, Noel. Baby brain is a b*tch. That and lessons aren't that productive when you mount a pavement trying to move the car out of your estate, not once but twice, and then you end up crying for two hours 'cause there's no way you'll ever be able to drive the baby anywhere in an emergency.

On This Day In Oasis History...














The video below is from November 23rd 2008, when Liam and Noel Gallagher carried their friend Ricky Hatton's belts into the ring before his win against Paulie Malignaggi in Las Vegas.

After Hatton's win Noel congratulated his friend by planting a kiss on him.

Hatton had previously said that, "When I think of the most important things in my life, there's my family first and Campbell my son, then I've got boxing, next comes Manchester City, then it's Oasis."

Read our interview with Ricky Hatton that was posted in 2009 here, it includes a number of personal pictures of him with the Gallagher's.

Noel Gallagher: You Won't Be Cool Like Me













Noel Gallagher isn’t a man to mince his words, even when his own kids are concerned.

The outspoken fella has told his sons Donovan, five, and Sonny, two, they’ll never be cool rock ’n’ roll stars like him.

Chatting about being a dad, Noel, 45, said: “I have a mug which says Greatest Dad in the World, so I must be pretty good. My wife says I am f***ing useless, so I guess I am somewhere in the middle.

“I am dreading them in their teens though. My attitude is everything in moderation, but I have told them: ‘You will never be as cool as your dad.’”

Although he did reveal that Donovan likes listening to acid house and Dizzee Rascal before bed. Sounds pretty cool for a five-year-old.

Meanwhile, Noel admits his mum is desperate for him and brother/nemesis Liam to call a truce.

He tells Alan Carr on tonight’s Chatty Man: “Me and Liam have not spoken. I’m busy. We did text each other last Christmas because our mam made us.

“We are not a Christmas family. I hate Christmas. I am not a people person. Christmas and people wearing hats ... nah.

“I did smash his guitar. yes. I put my foot through his guitar and then he threw it at me.” He also admits Liam, 40, decided to call their band Oasis and he was never a fan of the name.

Noel sniped: “He came up with the name. I was not arsed.

“It’s a s*** name for a band anyway.”

Oasis fans are holding out for a reunion, especially as their 20th anniversary will be in 2014.

But it seems unlikely.

Dashing the hearts of fans everywhere Noel revealed: “It would take Liam or myself to be very skint and I know that is not going to happen.

‘The last time I saw Liam he didn’t say much. The day will pass and people will realise the anniversary just has not happened.”

Noel Gallagher Confirmed To Curate 2013 Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts













Noel is pleased to confirm he will be curating the 2013 Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. It's very early days yet, though.

Please stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks.

Noel Gallagher To Curate 2013 Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts













The Who's Roger Daltrey has told NME that Noel Gallagher is set to curate next year's Concerts For Teenage Cancer Trust.

The gigs, which Daltrey founded in 2000, have been staged every year by the charity's patron at London's Royal Albert Hall. But the frontman said he will now pass the baton on to the ex-Oasis chief in 2013. Gallagher has performed a series of solo gigs at the venue for the charity over the years. His brother Liam's band Beady Eye also played in 2011.

Daltrey told NME: I'm not doing it next year because I'm on tour and Noel Gallagher has kindly offered to step in. So he's putting the bill together. Obviously I'm in the background and I'm not going away. I'll put feelers out but he kindly offered and I accepted. Daltrey added: "I'm on the road all the way through to the beginning of March. So it really helped me out. Instead of being on the beach on my vacation in January on the bloody cellphone for eight hours a day, I can actually get some sleep."

The frontman also said that he's started the charity up in the US. He explained: "I've made a rod for my back because I've just started Teen Cancer America so we're basically shipping our model for how teenagers should be cared for in hospitals when they have cancer to the USA, we're trying to educate them in the same manner."

"I've just launched that and I think it's going to catch fire. because there's a huge lack of care there, they're not even recognised as a group."

The line-up for next year's shows is yet to be unveiled. Pulp, Paul McCartney and Florence And The Machine were among the acts that performed at the 2012 event.

He wanted me to be in his video and I don’t know if it was Noel’s idea but my dress had to get caught in his taxi door. I’ve met him around London and he’ll always be a rock god to me. I talked for three hours about Manchester City in the back of a taxi with him. I’ve always been a huge Oasis fan and a huge Noel fan. My dad is from Manchester and supports City so we were talking about living in London and LA and about him moving out there. He’s interesting and really down-to-earth, though he had these enormous Manchester guys guarding his car.

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














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

Yes comrades. How is everyone? OK? OK . . . I do tend to say this quite often I know but . . . it's been a long time since we last spoke. I don't really remember when it was to be honest. 3 weeks ago?

Fuck knows! Anyway . . . that American tour was alright. Nothing more nothing less. We came, we played, we moved on to the next one. A more uneventful tour you'd be hard pushed to find. A few things do stick out though. Gigs in Nashville and Kentucky (for some reason!). All the shows in Texas were great for me, (I do love Texas. Nice weather. Nice people). I did get mauled by some bastard mosquitoes though. I had 8 bites at one point! On my hands. Agony.

So that was that. Like I say it was "alright".

That gig at the Shepards Bush Empire was - if I'm being honest - a bit of an anti-climax. Can't really put my finger on why. It just kind of passed me by a little. Maybe I'd built it up too much in my head? Maybe everyone in the crowd had seen the show one too many times already? Dunno . . . I didn't really enjoy it. Jet lag maybe? Who knows? Not me!! We did party hard after though. It’s taken me a good 72 hours to straighten myself out again.

I would like to say a heart felt thank you to everyone who either bought the record or came to the shows and if you did both then you are a righteous person and I thank you twice as much.

I'd like to thank all my crew. I'd like to thank my band (I actually don't think - when I was choosing a line-up-to tour this record - I could've found a group of lads more readily available . . . I'm only joking!! BUT SERIOUSLY THOUGH).

So . . . that's that then. I shall, for the for seeable future, be indulging my beautiful wife and wonderful kids AND that crazy football club of mine.

There now follows a massive break in transmission.

Go safe.

IN A BIG BIT.

Noel Gallagher On Hiatus














Noel Gallagher is on an indefinite leave from music after finishing a world tour with his High Flying Birds project.

The former Oasis frontman has just finished touring his debut album with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds around the world, and plans to take it easy for a while.

He said: ''I'm going to take voluntary redundancy and maybe grow a couple of beards. I like to get as far away from it as possible when I finish touring because it's so full on when you're doing it. There's not just only the gigs, there's all the other stuff that goes around it.''

The 45-year-old 'If I Had a Gun' star won't return to music until inspiration strikes, or wife Sara MacDonald, 40, pushes him to get back to work.

He added: ''I don't know when it will be, but you just wait for some kind of call from somewhere - creative call or whether it be the elbow from the wife, which it was last time. 'Get out the house, man'. She didn't say it in as many words but that's what she meant.''

Kate Moss Lived With Noel Gallagher In The 1990s?













Kate Moss held a predictably lavish launch party for her new book, Kate: The Kate Moss Book at 50 St James Street, London, this week.

After spending the early evening signing copies of the tome at Marc Jacobs' bookshop in Mayfair, Moss arrived at the bash to be greeted by the likes of Bob Geldof, Noel Gallagher, Florence Welch, Alison Mosshart and Donna Karan.

WWD.com's reporter said "It was hard to move at the party for Kate Moss' new book without coming nose-to-nose with a glass of Veuve Clicquot - or a famous person," and they caught up with Mr Gallagher to chat about the heady 1990s when his group Oasis and Ms Moss moved in similar circles. "She actually lived with me for a while," he revealed, "There would be more people waiting outside my flat to see her than there were for me. I would pop out to the shops and people would ask me, 'Is Kate in? Can you get me her autograph?"

The pair met at a part in 1994, though Manchester-born Noel had no idea who Kate was, despite her being the most famous model in the world. "I had just moved down from Manchester and was not that familiar with the London scene. Two weeks later, I was in America and her face was everywhere, on billboards, on every magazine."

As WWD.com's reporter moved downstairs, the party appeared to get worse. Quickly.
