Liam Gallagher Tries A Parmo As He Attends Wedding On Teesside














The parmo has a new fan.

Liam Gallagher sampled Teesside's much-loved dish at The Bay Horse in Hutton Rudby over the weekend.

The former Oasis frontman had been visiting the pretty Yarm village after travelling to the region to attend a wedding.

The picture emerged on social media over the course of today.

He was also the very first guest at nearby Rudby Hall - a former royal residence now operating as an exclusive private venue.

Whilst staying at Rudby Hall he wrote in the guest book: “Can’t remember a thing, so must have had a good time. Top gaff, nice people.”

His girlfriend Debbie Gwyther added: “Stayed here for few nights for a friend’s wedding. Great hospitality, brilliant nights’ sleep and an ace breakfast to top it off....perfect!”

The grand grade II* listed hall started offering luxury bed and breakfast accommodation this weekend following a conservation and refurbishment project to restore it to its former glory.

Wendy Desiles of Rudby Hall said: “We are delighted to unveil Rudby Hall in all its glory to the public for the first time since it was built in 1838 as a royal residence for the daughter of King William IV Lady Amelia Cary and her husband the 10th Viscount Falkland.

“To have the pleasure to welcome Liam Gallagher to the hall as our first bed and breakfast guest was a real honour."

A spokeswoman from The Bay Horse declined to comment this afternoon.

Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich Says Noel Gallagher Inspired Him To Get Off Cocaine














Metallica‘s legendary days of hard partying are long over, but some habits die harder than others, and for drummer Lars Ulrich, cocaine use continued to linger well into the 21st century. In fact, as he recently shared during an interview with the UK’s Daily Mirror, he didn’t give up the drug until Oasis co-founder Noel Gallagher inadvertently inspired him to set it aside 10 years ago.

“In the early days, I’d always get drunk way faster than the other guys,” Ulrich explained. “I realized that if there was a little bit of cocaine involved I could stay up longer, instead of ending up face down in the corner passed out three hours before the party ended. I loved the social elements of cocaine. I loved the danger of it. Then about 10 years ago, I read an interview with Noel Gallagher, in which he said: ‘I just stopped doing cocaine.’ I thought that was really cool: it felt so fresh, so honest, so pure — I love that side of him. I’ve never had an addictive personality, so I woke up one day and said: ‘Enough.’”

Unlike a lot of people who’ve walked away from substance abuse, Ulrich still finds himself able to indulge occasionally. His party diet has changed, however; as he told the Mirror, he planned on unwinding after Metallica’s recent Glastonbury gig with a glass of bubbly. “A glass of champagne, that’s probably what I’ll have,” he nodded. “Before the gig we’ll be like a sports team backstage doing all our stretching. We won’t be shooting tequilas. But afterwards, yes, I’ll have a drink. Champagne — maybe tequila, vodka. I like clear drinks; I don’t really do beer.”

Ulrich went on to describe his current domestic existence, which includes making lunch for his kids, driving them around after school, and squeezing in his Metallica responsibilities during the daytime hours. Cholesterol problems have driven meat from his diet — “I live and breathe hummus” — and although he still enjoys a bit of alcohol every now and then, he says it’s much more of an occasional thing these days. “If I have anything to drink at home, it’s maybe only once every week or two, and it’s always after the kids have gone to sleep,” he explained. “I don’t like to drink around them.”

Liam Gallagher's New York City Home Is Up For Sale














If you've got the money to live like a rock star, you might be interested in owning the home of one.

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has put his two-bedroom New York City pad on the market for a cool $4 million.

And the star is clearly hoping to pocket a handsome profit, as he purchased the plush Manhattan abode for $2.5 million in 2012.

The apartment offers sweeping views over Central Park and the Big Apple beyond, thanks to its plum position on the 17th floor of the landmark JW Marriott Essex House hotel building.

According to the New York Post, the unit in the 1931 building was 'recently renovated and features coffered ceilings, wide-plank herringbone floors, central air conditioning and a chef’s kitchen with a 40-bottle wine cooler'.

And, just to add that little extra touch of luxury, the hotel's services are extended to the apartment's residents.

Those amenities include maid service, 24-hour room service, valet parking, plus a gym, spa and business centre.

And, should there be no immediate buyers, the apartment can be rented though the hotel's management if it sits unoccupied for more than one month.

Is Noel Gallagher's New Album Finished?













It's been reported by a Japanese music website ro69.jp that Noel Gallagher has finished recording his new album in New York last week.

Speaking earlier this year Mark Coyle said that the album has the spirit of Oasis's debut, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. "The new record will be seismic," he said.

"It's so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won't be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos."

Oasis Benefit From The Introduction Of Online Streaming Into The UK Charts














Oasis and Coldplay are among the acts to have seen their tracks benefit from the recent introduction of online streaming into the UK charts.

From the start of this month, the Official Charts Company has been counting 100 streams on sites such as Spotify as being equivalent to one download or physical copy, and historical singles have also now been brought in line with the changes to reflect their online popularity.

Coldplay’s 2005 single ‘Fix You‘ has been upgraded from Gold to Platinum, reflecting sales of over 600,000, while Oasis’ ‘Champagne Supernova‘ – only officially released as a single in Australia – is now nevertheless Silver in the UK with sales of 200,000.

“The BPI’s certified awards and Platinum, Gold and Silver discs form part of our country’s music heritage, so including audio streams in the sales data for singles represents an important landmark,” Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the BPI, tells the BBC.

“It will ensure that our awards remain relevant and up to date in measuring the popularity of our favourite recordings.”

On This Day In Oasis History...















"D'You Know What I Mean?" is a song by British rock band Oasis. It was the first single from their third album Be Here Now and was released on the 7th July 1997. It reached #1 in the UK singles chart, the 3rd Oasis song to do so. The song was written by Noel Gallagher. It was certified platinum for UK sales.

At the time "D'You Know What I Mean" was released, Oasis were at the height of their fame, and as a result, the single, along with the album, was highly anticipated. Upon its release it was critically and commercially successful.

The guitar chords on both the verse and the chorus are similar to the chords used for the Oasis single "Wonderwall" (F#m7/A/Esus4/Bsus4).

The song also shows more of Noel's influences. References include Bob Dylan ("Blood on the tracks and they must be mine"), and The Beatles ("Fool on the hill and I feel fine"), and even their own earlier work ("Don't look back in Anger "). The song also features a drum loop from N.W.A.

The Morse code in the background translates to include such sayings as "bugger all", "pork pies" and "Strawberry Fields Forever." Oasis haven't performed this song since 2002.




















B-Sides

One of the B-sides, "Stay Young", has become a popular Oasis song, so much so that fans voted it onto the B-sides collection The Masterplan - one of only two B-sides from the Be Here Now period which made the album. The song was originally intended to be the "Digsy's Dinner" of Be Here Now (the lighthearted novelty track, such as "Digsy's Dinner" on Definitely Maybe and "She's Electric" on (What's the Story) Morning Glory?), until Noel set it aside in favour of "Magic Pie". Gallagher claims not to be particularly fond of the track.

Interview

In a 1997 interview promoting Be Here Now, Noel Gallagher had the following to say about the first single: "I was going to make up some profound statement in the chorus but I couldn't come up with anything that fitted. Then I just thought "All my people right here, right now. D'You Know What I Mean? Yeah, Yeah" Very vague, very ambiguous, that'll do. Look in the mirror and wink while you're singing it and it's quite saucy. And I f***ing love that line, 'Coming in a mess, going out in style'. We were a bunch of scruffs from Manchester and we're going out in a Rolls Royce."

In another 1997 interview, this time on BBC, Noel Gallagher said: "I cant believe I wrote it, it's going to blow people away."

"The morse code in the background was inspired by Strawberry Fields. We got hold of a code book and tried to tap out 'Bugger All' to follow that line 'Don't look back cos you know what you might see'. But if anyone can tell me what we really said, please let me know. Profound lagerisms..."

Seven Ages of Rock

In an interview with the BBC for their documentary Seven Ages of Rock, Gallagher said of the song, "Its eight and a half minutes, the first single, the drums haven't fuckin' come in for two minutes- its all feedback!". He also says that he expected someone to ask them to edit the introduction to the song down, but such was their status in Britain, nobody did. They even performed the song on Top of the Pops, still playing most of the lengthy introduction.

The performance on Top of the Pops ended with a stage invasion by surrounding fans- the second of three stage invasions in the whole history of the show (the first was Nirvana and the last Symposium).

Cover information

The single cover photograph, by Michael Spencer Jones and directed by Brian Cannon of Microdot, was taken in front of the 'Blind Steps', a staircase in Wigan so called because they run past the Blind Workshop, which can be seen to the left of the shot. The steps can still be found on Darlington Street. The shoot was shrouded in secrecy to protect mass media coverage, but newspaper The Wigan Evening Post got exclusive rights to cover the event and subsequently sold the photos to the Daily Mirror. At a lunchtime break, Liam Gallagher and sleeve designer Brian Cannon enjoyed a pint of beer in the nearby Crispin Arms pub by Birkett Bank.

Music video



The music video is filmed at Beckton Gas Works in London with many military helicopters and a strange landscape of concrete slabs and torn down buildings. Liam Gallagher is wearing a snorkel parka and sports a unique pair of sunglasses.

On This Day In Oasis History...















"Sunday Morning Call" is a song by British rock band Oasis taken from their fourth studio album, Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, and was released as the third and final single from it on 3 July 2000, peaking at #4 in the UK charts. The song is written and sung by Noel Gallagher, who took over lead vocal from brother Liam Gallagher on an A-side for the first time since "Don't Look Back in Anger" in 1996.

Though the song has the same anthemic feel that popularised many Oasis songs, and departs from the psychedelic feel of Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, which had been poorly received by critics, it received a mixed critical reception. NME described it as "a dreary thing indeed", whereas Allmusic described it as a "self-consciously mature departure from the group's usual ebullience... a deliberately mellow, mid-tempo [song]".


The music video is a take on the Jack Nicholson film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, with characters resembling McMurphy and Nurse Ratched. It was filmed in an old mental institution in Vancouver, Canada and features Scottish actor James Cunningham, who has previously starred in the original play of Trainspotting. Unlike the film, the video begins with the McMurphy character escaping his home and giving chase to the authorities, and ends in a football match. While the inmates celebrate a victory, Oasis are seen watching from the asylum window, and Noel Gallagher makes a 'wanker' hand gesture at Cunningham.

Although unconfirmed, there was widespread speculation at the time that the song was inspired by Noel's friend Kate Moss.

This is the only Oasis single on which Liam Gallagher does not provide vocals on any of the songs.

Oasis Top NME Readers Poll Of Dream Glastonbury 2015 Headliners














David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Muse and Fleetwood Mac also on fan wish-list.

NME readers have voted for Oasis as the band they would most like to see headline Glastonbury next year (2015).

Readers have been voting for the artists they would most like to see top the bill at next year's event following this year's festival, which brought performances from Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian.

Despite the fact that Oasis are technically not together at the moment, the constant rumours about Noel and Liam Gallagher's reunion are clearly giving fans hope that a performance on the Pyramid Stage could be a possibility.

Closely following the Manchester band on the list of acts who NME.com users would like to play next year is David Bowie while Foo Fighters, Muse and Fleetwood Mac all ranked highly.

On Sunday morning (June 29), Glastonbury founder Eavis revealed that three headliners have already been booked for next year's festival – and they don't include the long-rumoured Prince.

"We've got three headliners already – and that's without Prince. We've got some good headliners.

We had an agent [for a band] yesterday on the platform by the stage watching Metallica with me, saying, 'My band want to do it next year'.

I can't tell you who it was but that was done on the platform watching Metallica. Is it a British artist? He's definitely British, but the band are not British any more."

Iron Maiden have emerged as bookmaker William Hill's front-runners to headline Glastonbury 2015.

Following Metallica's warm reception at the festival, the bookmaker has slashed Iron Maiden's odds of performing next year to 7/1.

Among the other acts with good odds are Kate Bush (8/1), whose first live dates in 35 years recently sold out, Oasis (8/1), Coldplay (10/1), Noel Gallagher (10/1) and U2 (10/1).

Oasis - Bonehead's Bank Holiday: Exclusive Stream














As part of the new Chasing the Sun series, here's a taster of Bonehead's intended Ringo moment, taken from the forthcoming (What's the Story) Morning Glory? re-release.

They may have sidestepped this year's Glastonbury, but the Oasis anniversary continues with the band's latest reissue: following the repackaged version of Definitely Maybe earlier this year, the second in the new Oasis: Chasing the Sun series is (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, and will be released on 29 September on Big Brother Recordings, adorned with unheard demos, live recordings and B-sides.

Featured on disc 2 of the new reissue is Bonehead's Bank Holiday. First unveiled as a vinyl-only track on (What's the Story) Morning Glory and later issued as part of an NME Brat Pack '96 compilation cassette, the song was originally intended to be Bonehead's "Ringo" moment.

However, the story goes that the guitarist was too nervous to record his vocals so went to the pub with Liam, got extremely drunk and attempted to sing them again, somewhat unsuccessfully. The final version instead features Noel on vocals, and a lot of nonsensical pub diatribe.

Liam Gallagher Heads To Childhood Haunts For Shoot For Pretty Green














Rock star Liam Gallagher has returned to his favourite childhood haunts in Burnage - as the backdrop for a new fashion campaign for his Pretty Green label.

Oasis and Beady Eye frontman Liam handpicked the locations for the arty shoot, which showcases his rock-n-roll-inspired range of menswear and his trademark parkas.

Models are seen having a kickabout at Cringle Fields, looking at records in the famous Sifters shop, and even posing on the street where Liam and his brother Noel grew up in Burnage.

Liam says the new Autumn/Winter 2014 campaign is about going “back to his roots” as his fashion brand celebrates five years of success in the design world.

And as well as those Burnage backdrops, Liam also selected The Ritz as a favourite city centre music venue, The Eagle Inn in Salford for a traditional boozer, and Castlefied as a nod to Manchester’s industrial heritage. 

The singer worked with his design director Pat Salter on the look and feel of the new shoot, which is aiming to show how proud the label is of its British roots, and in particular of Liam’s love for his hometown.

The models are pictured having a kickabout on the streets where Liam grew up, as well as at the Cringle Fields on Errwood Road as well as browsing records at Sifters - the record shop that famously gets a mention in Oasis hit Shakermaker.

These locations were used for the more casual items in the range, including the trademark Pretty Green logo t-shirt and bomber jackets.

For the images outside the Ritz, a favourite music venue for Liam where he has played with both Oasis and Beady Eye, the models wear the higher end fashions from Pretty Green’s Black Label, with tailored leather and suede jackets.

There is also more modern tailoring in the shots at The Eagle Inn in Salford, the boozer next door to Blueprint Studios in Salford where Elbow famously record.

Design boss Pat says: “Liam is always involved at every stage with the design process and he was very keen to suggest all the locations on this latest campaign. As well as it being a bit of a journey across Manchester, it’s about places that are special to Liam.”

Liam suggested Sifters record shop, and the design team and models got to meet the legendary Mr Sifter who still runs the traditional shop.

Pat says: “He’s a great guy and had lots of memories of Liam visiting the shop to buy his records. He was really accommodating during the shoot, and I’m sure he’ll be happy as one of the models ended up buying quite a few records after the shoot!”

Campaign images for the Autumn/Winter range will be used in magazines, posters and adverts.

Pretty Green has won huge acclaim since Liam started the label in 2009. The store also has branches in London and Glasgow, and a Japanese outlet launched in 2012.

On This Day In Oasis History...















Heathen Chemistry is the fifth studio album by English rock band Oasis, first released on July 1st 2002. It sold over 1 million copies in the UK, ending up in the top ten best selling albums of 2002, and about 4 million worldwide as of 2005.

Heathen Chemistry was received more warmly than the previous Oasis album, Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, by both fans and critics alike. It spawned four singles, each of which made the top three in the UK charts: "The Hindu Times", their sixth number one single in the UK, "Stop Crying Your Heart Out", a song made famous as it was played on the BBC when the English football team were knocked out of the World Cup, the Double A-Side, sung by Noel — "Little By Little/She Is Love" — and "Songbird", the first single written by Liam.

This album was the last one to feature the band's longtime drummer, Alan White, who left in early 2004, with Noel Gallagher claiming White's commitment to the band wasn't up to scratch. He was effectively replaced with Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey.





















Album History

The title of the album, according to Noel, came from a t-shirt he bought in Ibiza which featured a logo reading, "The Society of Heathen Chemists". Similarly, the name of the first single, "The Hindu Times", originated from a logo on a t-shirt that read the same thing, which Noel saw during a photo shoot for GQ's 100 Greatest Guitarists edition. The name was given to the track when it was just an instrumental, as all the instrumentals of this album were given actual titles as opposed to "Instrumental 1", etc., and the name stuck once the track was finished.

The album was recorded during 2001–early 2002, and was the first studio album written and recorded with the two new members, bassist Andy Bell and rhythm guitarist Gem Archer. Bell and Archer wrote one track each, and Liam Gallagher contributed three, thus the album signalled the end of Noel Gallagher songs dominating Oasis albums (though Liam had contributed "Little James" to Standing on the Shoulder of Giants).

The release of the album was overshadowed by an internet leak of all 11 tracks almost three months prior to release. However, listeners of the commercially released album heard slight differences to two tracks, "Little By Little" and "Better Man".
