Russell Brand To Record Oasis' 'Roll With It' With Noel Gallagher

Russell Brand has said he will record an Oasis song in response to people who have been likening his recent rants to Blur's Parklife lyrics.

The comedian's tweets containing his thoughts on society have been bombarded by users writing simply "Parklife".

Brand claimed he was not offended by the tweets, but said he was planning to team up with Noel Gallagher to record a version of the Oasis hit Roll With It.

Oasis were famously Blur's chart rivals and had a high-profile battle to top the charts 19 years ago.

In an interview with radio station Magic, Brand said: "I'm a comedian, and I make all my living out of mucking around and talking, and I've certainly tormented people in the past. So yeah, I don't mind that, I think - unless it's malicious."

He pointed out that his sidekick from his old Radio 2 show, Matt Morgan, had similarly said "Parklife" many years ago when he launched into a rant.

Brand went on: "I don't know Damon Albarn particularly, but I've spoken to Noel Gallagher and we plan to respond with a Roll With It single. I'll say 'Roll with it' after every seven words."

The Parklife trend started after the star tweeted: "This attitude of churlish indifference seems like nerdish deference contrasted with the belligerent antipathy of the indigenous farm folk, who regard the hippie-dippie interlopers, the denizens of the shimmering *** temples, as one fey step away from transvestites."

Journalist Dan Barker's response prompted thousands of tweets: "Russell Brand's writing feels like someone is about to shout 'PARKLIFE!' at the end of every sentence."

Blur's song famously features lyrics about getting woken up by dustmen and feeding the pigeons.

Brand said his old pal Gallagher would not be attending his live show at the Royal Albert Hall in London next week.

"I've not invited him, because he's not been supportive enough lately, " he said.

"If he's seen anywhere near the vicinity, I'm going to have someone grab him by the eyebrow, tie a kite to it, and send him off into the ether."
