On This Day In Oasis History...














The Shock Of the Lightning" is a song by British rock band Oasis and is the fourth track from the band's seventh studio album Dig Out Your Soul. The song was released as the first single from the album on 29 September 2008. It received its first airplay on 15 August 2008 on multiple UK and Irish radio stations including the Ian Dempsey Breakfast show on Today FM in Ireland, BBC 6 Music by Shaun Keaveny, and by Chris Moyles on BBC Radio 1. Chris was joined by Noel Gallagher on the 15 August 2008.

Noel said of the song: "If 'The Shock of the Lightning' sounds instant and compelling to you, it’s because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. 'The Shock of the Lightning' basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best”. It was described by NME as "a massively improved version of 'It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)'" and featuring "love is a litany/a magical mystery" as the song's chorus.

The single is the first Oasis song to feature a remix on a studio release. The B-side is a remixed version of the album track "Falling Down" by The Chemical Brothers, who Noel has worked with in the past. However, a promo release of Oasis' cover of "Cum On Feel the Noize" contained the "Lynchmob Beats Mix" of "Champagne Supernova" by Brandon Lynch that was also re-released as a stand alone promo for Stop the Clocks. Consequently this is their first official CD single release that does contain a new track as a B-side.

On 30 July 2008, the official Oasis website posted a Dig Out Your Soul trailer which contained a 23 second clip of the intro to "The Shock of the Lightning" as well as a 20 second clip of the drum solo. On 15 August 2008, the song received it first airplay on the The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 with Noel Gallagher present. Noel said of the song on Shaun Keaveny's Radio 6 show, "It's a driving, pumping, pop, rock 'n' roll masterpiece". In NME, the song was named as 'song of the week' and received a score of 9/10, despite being referred to as "only the fifth best song on Dig Out Your Soul".





















"The Shock Of The Lightning" entered the UK Singles Chart at #3, becoming the band's first lead single since their debut, "Supersonic", to fail to reach #1 in their homeland. However the song reached #12 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart in the USA, making it their most successful single there since "Don't Go Away", which peaked on the chart at #5 in 1998. It also reached #93 on the Billboard Hot 100, their first song to chart on the Hot 100 since "Don't Look Back in Anger" in 1996.



Music video

The music video for the song (directed by Julian House and Julian Gibbs) debuted on the band's official site on 25 August at 17:30 (UK time) and was broadcast on Channel 4 at 23:40. The video depicts Liam singing and the occasional appearance of the rest of the band, intercut with stock footage related to the album's artwork. The opening shot of the video of silhouetted heads is a reference to the cover of the Rolling Stones compilation record Hot Rocks 1964-1971.

Radio 1 Music Boss Says 'Noel Gallagher's Music Is More At Home On Radio 2'













Playlist bosses George Ergatoudis and Nigel Harding discuss Green Day, Robbie Williams and Muse.

BBC Radio 1music bosses have described Noel Gallagher's music as "more at home on Radio 2" while admitting that Green Day's recent output has not been good enough to get played by the station.

Both head of music at Radio 1, George Ergatoudis, and Nigel Harding, the station's music policy director, have answered a number of questions from music industry figures in the new issue of Music Week. Among those quizzing the pair is Kevin McCabe, a music promotions specialist, who asked what the concise criteria is regarding an artist's age and how that affects their chances of being playlisted on Radio 1.

Responding to the confusion around Robbie Williams' 2012 single 'Candy' not making the playlist but his 'Goin' Crazy' collaboration with Dizzee Rascal being played heavily, Nigel Harding says: "This is all about the age of the artist's primary audience. In Robbie's case we believe that his main fan base is comfortably over the age of 30, whereas Dizzee's is clearly much lower." Moving on to Noel Gallagher, Harding adds: "I think Noel's music feels more at home on Radio 2, and the last Green Day project simply wasn't good enough."

Muse also came into consideration with Harding stating: "Muse are approaching a crossroads - their last single was the first one not playlisted by Radio 1 in a decade. The door remains open to them but we'll have to think carefully about their next album."

Previously,Robbie Williams called Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw a "bastard" during a live appearance following the stations refusal to playlist his song 'Candy', saying that the former Take That singer was too old for them to champion.

Noel Gallagher's Regret Over Oasis' 'Be Here Now' Album













Rocker Noel Gallagher cringes every time he hears a song from Oasis' 1997 album Be Here Now, insisting the tracks make no sense as he was drug-addled when he wrote them. The guitarist worked at a breakneck pace to record the hotly-anticipated follow-up to (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, but just weeks before heading into the studio with his bandmates he realised he had no lyrics for the songs.

Gallagher decided to spirit himself away in a Caribbean bolthole to write the words, and he has regretted his decision ever since. He tells British magazine Event, "I had all the music but not the words. We were starting in two weeks, so I went to some Caribbean island and I thought I'd do it all in two weeks. I listen to those words now and I just cringe. I was heavily into drugs at that point and I just didn't give a damn."

Beady Eye's Gem Archer Breaks Leg While Recovering At Home














Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer Gem Archer is reported to have broken his leg whilst at home recovering from his recent skull fracture.

Earlier this month, the band reported that Archer was making a 'full recovery' in time for the band's upcoming UK and Ireland tour in November after it was previously feared that the guitarist was unlikely to perform with the band for the remainder of the year after suffering a serious head trauma in August - forcing the band to cancel their appearance at V Festival.

But now, a source has told The Sun newspaper that Archer has had a metal pin inserted into one of his legs nd will spend four months in a plaster cast after a recent accident in the bathroom at home, where his leg snapped in two places.

"Gem's on a bad run of luck right now," said the source. "First the fall down the stairs and now this. He can't even explain how it happened, it was just a freak accident. His leg gave way under him and just went. 'He's got a double fracture to the tibia and fibula, the two long bones in the lower leg.''

Another On This Day In Oasis History...




The videos below are from September 23rd 2008, when Zane Lowe caught up with the band to discuss a number of various subjects.




On This Day In Oasis History...




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

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




















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



She Is Love

"She Is Love" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the ninth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. In September 2002, it was released with "Little by Little" as the first double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was written about Noel Gallagher's girlfriend Sara McDonald and is a light, acoustic song about being in love.

Gallagher claims it was written in the Buckingham Gate Hotel in London, and that it took 30 minutes to complete. The band commissioned British fashion art director Rachel Thomas to make a promo video for the song. However, the resulting film, a mix of animation and live action, has never been released on any format.

Another On This Day In Oasis History...




Below is a video from September 22nd 2004, when Noel Gallagher appeared on Tim Lovejoy And The All Stars in London.

On This Day In Oasis History...




"Stand By Me" is a song by British rock group Oasis, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher. It was the second single to be released from the band's third album, Be Here Now, and peaked at number 2 in the UK charts in September 1997. It was kept from the top-spot by the record breaking Elton John single "Candle in the Wind 1997," re-recorded and released in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who had died three weeks before the release of "Stand by Me". Despite this, "Stand By Me" still went Gold in the UK. "Stand by Me" was acknowledged as one of the stand-out tracks from Be Here Now.



















Interview

In a 1997 interview promoting Be Here Now, Noel Gallagher had the following to say: "It starts, 'Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday'. When I first moved to London my mam kept on ringing up and asking was I eating properly. Yes, Mam. So I tried to cook a Sunday roast and puked up for two days with food poisoning. It was back to Pot Noodles after that. It's a bit like "Live Forever", I suppose, with a touch of "All the Young Dudes" in the background -- though I made sure I changed the chords."

Live Performances

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

A well-known acoustic version of "Stand by Me" was shown on television the night before the release of Be Here Now as part of a BBC1 documentary, featuring Noel, Liam Gallagher and drummer Alan White sitting by the side of a swimming pool, with Liam on vocals, Noel on acoustic guitar and White holding a tambourine.

Writing

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

The title for the song probably comes from the song "Stand By Me", which was covered by the Gallaghers' idol John Lennon. In a characteristic example of Noel Gallagher lifting elements from songs of which he is fond, the rousing sequence of chord changes between the repeated chorus lyrics 'Stand by me/Nobody knows the way it's gonna be' bears a remarkable similarity to a similar chord sequence in Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes", written by David Bowie.



Video

The video for the song was a reworking of a famous series of adverts for The Guardian newspaper. Entitled The Whole Picture, the adverts showed people appearing to be engaging in criminal and/or anti-social acts—only to revealed that they are actually helping someone else. For example, a scruffily-dressed skinhead rushes at a businessman; it appears he is making an effort to mug him; only the "whole picture" reveals that he is fact dashing to push him away from a load of falling bricks. Similarly in the video for "Stand By Me", a shop appears to be being burgled - its window smashed and people taking away electrical goods—only for it to be revealed that in fact the victim of a motorcycle crash has gone through the window and is buried under the televisions.

"My Sister Lover" - Some fans believe the title to be a reference to the band Sister Lovers, a group that invited Oasis to a May 1993 gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were spotted by Creation Records chief Alan McGee, who reportedly offered Oasis a recording contract on the spot after the gig.

"Going Nowhere" - apparently Noel's attempt at a Burt Bacharach style song - can be found on The Masterplan, a collection of Oasis B-sides. It is one of only two B-sides from the Be Here Now era to be included on the album. Although it was not released until 1997, the song was written in 1990, before Noel even joined Oasis, let alone before they were signed.

Idris Elba Mocks Liam Gallagher














GQ has a big long cover story in their October issue and you should really read it because (a) he’s an interesting guy and the interview is refreshingly candid, and (b) it intersperses his life story with large sections about him DJing three parties in Ibiza in one night, the last of which didn’t even start until like 3 a.m., because of course the actor responsible for bringing both Stringer Bell and John Luther to life also DJs all-night parties in Ibiza on the regular. How’s your life going?

But I digress.

Elba also discusses his recent scuffle with Liam Gallagher at the NME Awards, and minces very few words in the process. We pick up the story in an Ibiza nightclub, mid-party:

And then he throws on “Wonderwall,” by Oasis, which is curious, because even though the mostly British crowd is howling the song back at him, Elba has been in the tabloids recently for an altercation with Liam Gallagher after this year’s NME Awards; the younger Gallagher brother removed Elba’s wool cap in an apparently disrespectful manner. Elba took issue; the two men got into it. So it seems suspicious, Elba playing Gallagher’s song, and the next day, when we meet up again, I ask him about it.

“Wonderwall” last night—were you taking a shot?

“No! F*ck that idiot. No.”

Basically, Elba says, he just gave Liam a hug and an affectionate rub on the head.

“Didn’t like that. Don’t touch his hair, apparently. F*ck off. Next time walk with a f*cking hairdresser, then.”

Laughter.

“Well, ‘I’m a popular rock singer, so I’m going to be mean and f*cking horrible to people just because they messed up my look.’ F*ck off. I played his song because his song’s a classic. I couldn’t—I don’t even know what his songs are about now or what band he’s in now. No one gives a f*ck, yeah? He was popular when he was in Oasis.”

Noel Gallagher Shoots Down Oasis Reforming Any Time Soon














Noel Gallagher has once again scoffed at claims that Oasis are set for a lucrative reunion next year - but admitted he might consider it if he was broke. Reports have consistently appeared in recent weeks claiming that the band would get back together to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album 'Definitely Maybe'.

Denying the stories again, Noel told talkSport presenter Andy Goldstein: "Maybe people keep thinking if that if they say it, it will eventually happen. It’s not going to happen. Unless they’re doing it without me, but without me it would be rubbish." He gave fans faint hopes that a reunion could happen one day, adding: "One can never say never, because one might be skint. But I’ve got no intention. I’m not interested."

Last month, Gallagher said a reunion defintely wouldn't happen. Fresh claims of the band reforming last weekend were quickly dismissed by Gallagher's spokesman. Noel's brother Liam meanwhile told NME last year that he would be interested in "burying the hatchet for a lap of honour" for Oasis, who split in 2009 following a fight between the siblings before the Rock en Seine festival in Paris.

Noel Gallagher Camp Denies 'Secret Plan' To Reunite Oasis














A spokesperson for Noel Gallagher has said that rumours the band will reunite and play a series of gigs at Knebworth in 2014 are "not true".

A story began circulating at the weekend with the Daily Mail claiming that Noel and Liam Gallagher have been "approached by promoters willing to pay huge sums for them to play two shows to mark 20 years since their debut album 'Definitely Maybe'". A source told the paper "If the gigs happened, they would perform 'Definitely Maybe' from start to finish."

However, a spokesperson from Noel Gallagher's PR company said simply: "It's not true" when approached by NME to comment on the story. This backs up Noel's own dismissal, which came earlier in the year. Asked during an appearance on Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy's talkSPORT radio show on August 15 if there is any truth to reunion rumours, Gallagher replied with a simple "no". He was then asked whether he would like to reform the band next year, and once again responded with a short, sharp "no" before confirming: "No, it definitely won't happen."

In June, Noel's brother Liam Gallagher told NME that the band had "unfinished business" and suggested that he and Noel could "bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour" to celebrate the anniversary.

Noel And Liam Gallagher Are In Top-Secret Talks About Re-Forming Oasis














Noel and Liam Gallagher are in top-secret talks about re-forming Oasis.

The brothers have been approached by promoters willing to pay huge sums for them to play two shows to mark 20 years since their debut album. And their answer could match the album’s title: Definitely Maybe.

The brothers have not been on stage together since a dramatic showdown at a Paris gig in 2009 when Liam reportedly smashed one of Noel's guitars

The pair could be tempted, despite Noel once saying the band wouldn’t re-form ‘even if all  the starving children in the world depended on it’.

'Talks are said to be fragile but the package on the table may prove irresistible to Liam.

The 40-year-old needs to pay for £500-an-hour lawyer Fiona Shackleton, who is handling his divorce from Nicole Appleton. Oasis split four years ago after fighting between the brothers. Since then Liam’s new band, Beady Eye, have had only a fraction of the success of Oasis.

If the concerts do go ahead, they are expected to be staged next August at Knebworth. When Oasis played there in 1996 they sold 330,000 tickets – the fastest-selling in British rock history.

A source said: ‘If the gigs happened, they would perform Definitely Maybe from start to finish.’

Noel, 46, subsequently quit the band saying: ‘I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.’ He has since fronted his band High Flying Birds. But in June, Liam hinted there could be a reunion. He said: ‘I’d do it for nowt, but if someone’s going to drop  a load of f**king money, I’d do it for that too.’

Both brothers’ spokesmen declined to comment.

One Direction Fans Slam Noel Gallagher On Twitter













Noel Gallagher is not a One Direction fan. That much we are pretty sure of, because he just won’t stop slagging them off.

The former Oasis star seems to blast the young X Factor singers in every interview he gives and most recently he’s not only criticised their music, but their musical genre as a whole and it sounds like he’s pretty wound up about the whole thing!

We can always count on the Wonderwall to be outspoken and controversial and in a new interview with GQ magazine, he turned his attention to the industry and radio sector, blasting:

“[It’s] pretty f**king dreadful, the music is. I can’t get my head round pop music. It’s all on the same frequency.

“It all seems designed to aggravate my teeth. You know music that makes your teeth hurt.”

Turning his rant towards Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson in particular Noel continued:

“Everybody’s winning out of it. One Direction aren’t working in the local f**king Costcutter, so they’re winning.

“The geezer who’s writing the f**king s**t tunes – he’s winning. He’s got f**king new houses coming out of his earholes.

“The record company are winning – ‘cos they’re all getting their f**king bonuses at Christmas.”

If you are a Directioner, or the parent of a Directioner then you might want to look away now because he took his insults to a whole other level, adding:

“The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day they might actually grow up to give one of them a blowjob. They’re all winning. No-one’s losing.”

Noel’s Twitter mentions quickly filled up with messages from users who didn’t like his comments at all.

Tweets sent to the singer and guitarist included:

“I hate when people like Noel Gallagher slag off pop music. It makes people happy and doesn’t change the fact nobody likes your latest album.”

“Ok I like Oasis but serious can Noel Gallagher stop he’s just being an arse I don’t care if you hate One Direction stop being a knob”

Noel Gallagher's Mum Not Bothered About Feud














Noel Gallagher's mum is ''not arsed'' about the fact he and his brother Liam don't speak anymore.

The brothers fell out in a huge backstage row in 2009 which led to the breakup of their band, Oasis, and haven't spoken since and Noel says their parent, Peggy, isn't bothered about reuniting them.

He said: ''She's not arsed. We spoke about it once and that's it. How can you be bothered about two grown men in their forties who don't speak to each other? What's she going to do? Order me to call my brother?''

The 46-year-old musician - who now has his High Flying Birds project, while Liam has formed Beady Eye - says he doesn't really miss any of the former members of Oasis as he's a ''lone wolf''.

He added to GQ magazine: ''When Oasis were together we spent so much time touring that outside of that, I never used to see anyone from the band. I'm a loner. A lone wolf. I'd have made a brilliant assassin, a sniper.''

People shouldn't work weekends unless they work in the service industry and they're getting paid double time. Thou Shalt Not Work Weekends. I don't like workaholics. Don't f**ing trust them. Why are they working? I don't trust busy c***s. That's how wars start: busy f***ers. If terrorism had a weekend off, eventually they'd have a year off. Eventually they'd go, T* * * this blowing up shit? Football's on." Thou shall not be arsed.

D: What would you ban?

N: I don't like litter. I like that Singapore thing. You know - you get caught dropping litter you get your head chopped off. I'd have a bin on every street comer. If you're going to buy a doughnut, eat the f***ing doughnut. Don't have a bite and then chuck it on the floor. Eat the f * *ing doughnut.

D: Who would you ban?

N: The root of all that is bad in the world. All religious and political preachers. it's like a Rubik's Cube of shit titles - it'll be entitled The Incontinence Of Elephants. And I'll say "What's that book about?" And she'll say, "Oh it's about a girl and this load of f* "ing nutters..." Right... so it's not about elephants, then? Why the f * * * is it called The Incontinence Of Elephants? Another one: The Tales Of The Clumsy Beekeeper. What's that about? "Oh it's about the French Revolution." Right, f*** off. If you're writing a book about a child who's locked in a f * * * ing cupboard during the f***ing Second World War... he's never seen an elephant. Never mind a f***ing giraffe.

Noel Gallagher Says Liam Is A 'Red Indian' When He's Drunk














Noel Gallagher says his brother Liam is like a "Red Indian" when he's drunk.

The former Oasis rocker joked about a recent story in which his sibling tried to ride a dog during a boozy night in London, and he compared his ex-bandmate to Native Indians introduced to alcohol by European settlers.

He told The Sun newspaper: "Liam's got a touch of the Red Indian in him when he has a drink.

"When the Europeans went to America, they got the Red Indians p***ed and bought Alaska off them for a f***ing milk-bottle top.

" 'Wahoo! Firewater!' There's a bit of that in Liam when he's drunk. 'Wahey! Let's have a go on that dog!' I'm all right when I'm drunk, I wouldn't ride an animal, though."

The pair have constantly argued, with their feud leading to Noel quitting Oasis in August 2009 - and he insisted their mother Peggy does't mind that they don't talk.

He claimed: "She's not arsed. We spoke about it once and that's it. How can you be bothered about two grown me in their forties who don't speak to each other?

"What's she going to do? Order me to call my brother?"

Noel Gallagher Blasts Radio 1 And One Direction













It’s news to absolutely nobody that brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher – of Oasis fame – don’t hold back on their criticism and acerbic barbs, and in today’s Sun, it’s been reported that this week, it was Noel’s turn to fire several blasts across the bows of Radio 1, One Direction and the music industry in general!

In an expletive filled interview with GQ magazine, Noel began by lambasting Radio 1, remarking, “There’s a lack of soul on Radio 1…

“I mean, what’s going to be the future of chart music?”

Branding the station “pretty f****** dreadful” he added, “I can’t get my head round pop music.

“It’s all on the same frequency. It all seems designed to aggravate my teeth.

“You know music that makes your teeth hurt?

He added, “Everybody’s winning out of it.”

And of One Direction – who are of course Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne – Noel said, “One Diretion aren’t working in the local f****** Costcutter, so they’re winning.

“The geezer who’s writing the f****** s*** tunes, he’s winning. He’s got f****** new houses coming out of his ear holes.

“The record company are winning because they’re all getting their f****** bonuses at Christmas.

“The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day, they might actually grow up to give one of them a b*** job.

“They’re all winning. No one’s losing.

“The only people who are losing are idiots like me at 9.30 in the morning when you’re trying to get the kids out the door for school, and they’re f****** murdering one of Blondie’s songs.”

On This Day In Oasis History...















Definitely Maybe was released on DVD on the 6th of September 2004 to mark the tenth anniversary of its original release. It went triple platinum in the UK.

The DVD featured an hour-long documentary about the recording of the album featuring rare and contemporary interviews with the band and its associates.

Also included was the album in its entirety, which included "Sad Song", which was originally only released on the UK vinyl version of the album and also on the Japanese CD edition. Other content included live and TV performances of the albums twelve tracks, and the promo videos to "Supersonic" (UK & US versions), "Shakermaker", "Live Forever" (UK & US versions), "Cigarettes & Alcohol" and "Rock 'n' Roll Star".

A limited-edition release in the UK and Ireland included a bonus DVD containing more live footage and anecdotes.
























There was also an accompanying made-for-TV documentary, entitled There We Were, Now Here We Are...: The Making Of Oasis. This was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK at 11:30pm on Friday, 3 September , three days before the release of the Definitely Maybe DVD. The programme combined existing and unused interview footage from the DVD documentary and focused on the origins of the band, and the four singles from Definitely Maybe.

It also included a very rare clip of "All Around the World" performed live at a rehearsal session in the Boardwalk in 1992, five years before it was eventually recorded and released on Be Here Now. The DVD received the NME award for Best Music DVD.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds embark on a UK tour in September and will tour the US and Canada alongside Snow Patrol and Jake Bugg later this year.

Noel Gallagher Confirms He Is Interested In Working With Damon Albarn













Former Oasis songwriter finally ready to collaborate with Blur frontman but denies Oasis will play Glastonbury 2014.

Noel Gallagher has said that he is "interested" in working with Damon Albarn but refuted claims Oasis will reform in 2014 and headline Glastonbury.

Gallagher spoke about his friendship with the Blur frontman, as well as the future of Oasis, while at this year's GQ Awards where he collected an Icon prize. He told The Sun that he is up for working with Albarn but there is no chance fans will see him back with brother Liam and Oasis next year.

The Sun reports Gallagher responded with a firm "no" when asked if Oasis were reuniting in 2014 and that he added there is no chance of the band playing Glastonbury. However, his friendship with Albarn may move in a musical direction with Gallagher adding: "I like Damon and would be interested in working in something."

As previously reported, Noel aimed a jibe at Foreign Secretary William Hague from the stage at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London on Tuesday night (September 4). Appearing on stage to collect his Icon prize, Gallagher told the audience: "Welcome to the Tory party conference, by the way. Nice to see the Foreign Secretary here with all the shit going on in the world that he should be sorting out. Good for you."

Gallagher was presented with the Icon prize at last night's GQ Men Of The Year Awards, where other winners included Arctic Monkeys, Lou Reed, Elton John and The Who's Roger Daltrey.

Noel Gallagher Interview In The New Issue Of British GQ Magazine














Rock star, philosopher, multi-million-selling Ivor Novello Award-winning songwriter… Noel Gallagher's position as the primary songwriting half of Oasis would be enough alone to secure him a GQ Icon award. But it is Gallagher's solo work - his debut album Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds had all the whole-hearted, genuine and with all the wit and rhythm of his former band - that has proven the most surprising. For all his younger brother's bluster, Noel seems to be writing some of the best material of his career. This year has seen him tour the lobe with huge success and even unite with Damon Albarn on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. For all the talk of a reunion, Noel on his own is more than enough for us.

Read the full exclusive interview and photo shoot in the The Men Of The Year Issue of British GQ, on sale 4 September, priced £3.99. British GQ is also available on iPad, Google Play and Kindle Fire.

Noel Gallagher Slams Rihanna's Entourage Army













Noel Gallagher has spoken out against Rihanna and her entourage, criticising the singer for courting a celebrity lifestyle and rinsing it for whatever she can get.

Gallagher was speaking at this year's GQ Awards, which were held in London last night (3 September, 2013), where he revealed his disgust at which the lengths fans and designers went to in order to reach the 'Diamonds' superstar, and how she embraces their gifts.

"I don't do rock star stuff. I don't wear sunglasses all the time - I tend to wear them when it's sunny," says Gallagher in an interview with GQ. "I don't have an entourage, and when I do it's pathetic. Never more than two people. "I was at a festival in Norway and Rihanna's just arrived with 100 people. Fucking small army. And I had to go into this room, which was all just racks of clothing and stuff that designers and punters had brought to give to Rihanna. And they all had these cards in front of them, saying: 'Dear Rihanna, we are such huge fans, please accept this $90,000 handbag from whoever and whoever'."

Gallagher also reveals that after seeing this, he took the opportunity to see how far the singer would go with gifts, and left a gift himself.

"I'm reading all these cards as I'm waiting to go in so I went back to my dressing room and got the little bowl of Cadbury's Sensations and left it there on her table with a card saying 'Dear Rihanna, please accept these chocolates on behalf of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'. And she took them. She fucking took them."

Gallagher also hit out at fans who approached him when he was off duty from his High Flying Birds frontman role, and singled out fans who asked him to sign inappropriate items.

"If someone comes up to you in Selfridges while you're buying socks and pants, and gives you a tube ticket to sign... I have to say, 'I am not signing that'. It's the argumentative soul in me," he tells the magazine. "'Why not?' Well, what are you going to do with it? Are you going to put that tube ticket on a plinth at home? Come on. Go and get an album. I'll be in this section buying socks for the next 45 minutes. HMV is downstairs.

"You can be there and back in ten minutes. Do not make me sign the back of a fucking receipt from Boots."

Noel Gallagher Blasts William Hague For Joining Celebs At GQ Awards













William Hague has been berated by rock star Noel Gallagher for attending an awards ceremony instead of ‘sorting out’ the Syria crisis.

The former Oasis star ridiculed the Foreign Secretary’s decision to turn up for the GQ Men of the Year Awards ‘with all the s*** going on all over the world’.

With London Mayor Boris Johnson also in attendance, Gallagher likened the star-studded bash to the Tory party conference.

Mr Hague spent the day being tackled by MPs over how the government will respond to the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in Syria.

But as US President Barack Obama outlined plans for missile strikes, Mr Hague last night walked up the red carpet with musicians, comedians and models.

Pointing at Mr Hague he added: ‘It’s nice to see the Foreign Secretary here while there's s**** going on all over the world he should be sorting out. ‘Good for you!’ he added to applause from the audience. Gallagher went on to thank ‘Dylan, Lennon and McCartney, Townshend, and Morrissey and Marr and all those other people I have been robbing for the last 20 years’.

Mr Hague had arrived at the event with wife Ffion to present the award for writer of the year to journalist Charles Moore. But it was Mr Johnson he took home a gong for Politician of the Year ‘after delivering a spectacular Olympic Games’ and ‘soaring on a wave of popularity’ while ‘expertly dodging the incessant rumours about when, rather than if, he would set his eyes on Number 10’.

GQ added: ‘At the goings on in Westminster village seem increasingly stale and lifeless - hello, Ed Miliband - Boris never fails to take an eruditely outspoken view, and it seems the public agrees with him.’
