Liam Gallagher Feared He Was A “Has-Been”


Liam Gallagher feared he was a “has-been” and considered moving to Spain to escape London, the singer admitted today.

The Mancunian star and former Oasis frontman, 44, told of the pressure he faced in recent years dealing with battles over his divorce and child maintenance as well as the break-up of his band Beady Eye.

Speaking before the Manchester bombing, he told ES magazine he began “drinking too much” while living in Hampstead: “I’d open the door and get mithered to death straight away. People going, ‘Oasis, Oasis, Oasis’ in your face, and it’s like you’re in a bad trip.

Skepta Responds To Praise From Liam Gallagher


Skepta has responded to praise to Liam Gallagher, after the former Oasis frontman spoke out for the grime star. Watch our video interview with Skepta above.

NME spoke to the grime hero at the Ivor Novello Awards in London, where he won ‘Songwriter Of The Year’. It has emerged that Gallagher is also a fan, after he tweeted: “Man like Skepta keeping it real. Got to stand for something.”

Responding to the praise, Skepta said: “I feel like the Earth is a re-print of a re-print of a print of a re-print. There are people who take on different objectives and missions in life. When you grow older, there’s a a void – and right now I’m filling a space where a lot of old rock, grime, hip-hop, punk artists left a vacant space. Everything has gone about the internet, everything has gone about the likes, everything has gone about social networking. I still have that…I can’t even put my finger on it, but I still have it.

“I like that these places I’m taking of the people that I respect and these people before me…Of course they’re respecting – they’re in touch. Liam’s in touch, bro. You can see. Not everybody really knows what’s happening. It’s a presence, it’s apparent, I’m here. You can see it in there eyes, you can see it in Bowie’s eyes when he takes a photo, rest in peace. There are so many of them.”

He added: “We get it, and when we see people who get it, we know that they get it as well. I’m happy that I represent that. Thanks to my mum and dad for giving me the right tools of life to get to this point.”

Noel Gallagher Is Having A Cocaine Themed 50th Birthday Bash


He's had plenty of wild times thanks to his time in Oasis and being one of the Primrose Hill set originals.

But, it would seem that Noel Gallagher hasn't lost his lust for life as his 50th birthday looms, as the former Oasis rocker is hosting a Narcos inspired birthday bash.

Revealing the theme on her Instagram account, the 49-year-old High Flying Birds frontman's wife Sara MacDonald shared an Instagram story with her followers that revealed the theme - showing Noel in a mock-up of the show's poster.

Showcasing the invite to her husband's half-century celebration, the glamorous PR guru revealed that Noel's quite the fan of the show - which in its two series has recounted the true-life tale of Pablo Escobar and the US agents who hunted him down.

Featuring the rocker stood in a pose that mimics the show's own promotional images, Noel is snapped in a cloud of smoke with white powder flying around him.

Titled "NG'S 50th", the card also features the show's tagline, "There's no business like blow business," at the top.

Waggling the card back and forth, Noel's image disappears and is replaced with that of Wagner Moura's Pablo Escobar.

On This Day In Oasis History...


Lyla is a song by the English rock band Oasis. The song was released on May 16th 2005 as the first single from the band's sixth album Don't Believe the Truth.

The song was written by Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, who has varyingly described the track as "specifically designed for pogoing", "annoyingly catchy", and the "poppiest thing since Roll with It".

Gallagher says that the song existed in an early form as a song called Sing and dated from the Heathen Chemistry-era. He also says that the title for the final song should have been Smiler, but was changed seeing as guitarist Gem Archer's previous band, Heavy Stereo, also had a song called "Smiler".

Sony's insistence that it should be released as the first single from the album has helped to fuel the tension between the band and their record label, which has led to Oasis not renewing their contract with the record label following the release of Don't Believe the Truth.

Lyla became the band's seventh UK number one when it reached top spot in its first week of release. The song also debuted at #31 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart and has reached #19 since then. It is the first Oasis song to appear on any US singles chart since 2000 when Go Let It Out hit number 14 on the Modern Rock chart.

Noel has also joked with the fact that the Lyla in the song is actually the sister of the Sally mentioned in the Oasis single Don't Look Back in Anger. Also, he had said that the song is a "love song", being about Sally Cinnamon's sister.

Originally claiming that he wasn't very fond of the song, Noel has said that Lyla "isn't even the fifth best track on the album". The song had existed as a demo since the early recording sessions for the album but was all but forgotten until practically the last minute. However, on the Lock the Box feature on the Stop the Clocks, Noel admitted that he "didn't realise how good it was until [we] played it live," and admitted he loved the "guitars, the drums, and the vocals" of the song.



Live performances

When performing on the UK music chart show Top of the Pops, Liam, who was forced to mime to the music, made no secret of the fact, walking away from the microphone with his mouth closed mid-way through lines that he was supposedly 'singing'. It would be Liam's last performance on the programme before its demise in late 2006. However, Noel and the rest of the band would return in August 2005 to perform The Importance of Being Idle and later in 2009 to perform their last ever released single Falling Down.



Lyla was covered by the Foo Fighters during a performance at BBC Studios.

The song is included on Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks. It is also included in FIFA 06 as a track.

Russell Brand Describes Noel Gallagher As A 'Chippy Bloke'


Noel Gallagher has been described as a ''chippy bloke'' who shows slight elements of wisdom by Russell Brand.

The 41-year-old comedian has a long list of celebrity pals, including the former Oasis band member, who he believes is a ''normal'' person, and will occasionally show a hint of ''wisdom'' when the air are together.

Speaking to NME magazine about the musician, the 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' actor said: ''Sometimes he's just a normal, quite chippy bloke from Manchester, but t other times you glimpse his wisdom.''

And Russell has revealed musician Morrissey - whose full name is Steven Patrick Morrissey - is ''always obtuse and vague''.

He explained: ''He is his art. I asked him what a bit of 'Now My Heart is Full' meant and he just went mysteriously: 'Oh you know ... the gang.' He's always obtuse and vague.''

Noel Gallagher And Paul Weller Already Have The Theme Song Written For The Next Bond Movie


The film has not started next James Bond yet, but Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller already have the theme song.

I told you how the former Oasis guitarist would record a 007 track “in a heartbeat”.

Now The Modfather spilled: “I’ve got this half a song that me and Noel Gallagher worked on and I think it would be great for a Bond theme. There’s a bit of minor key going on.”

Noel was not impressed by Sam Smith’s recent Bond song, saying: “I could do it and it would be great.”

If Daniel Craig returns to the role as expected, he will have a say in who does the music.

The actor gave the green light to Adele and Sam’s efforts.

Noel once said he wouldn’t mind Craig playing him in a film too.

But Craig joked that he couldn’t because he is too good at guitar playing.

He said: “I can play guitar better than Noel so I don’t know how playing him is really going to work.”

Meanwhile Weller is also keen on trying his hand at the dreaded Eurovision.

Referring to a song off his new album A Kind Revolution out tomorrow, he told BBC: “I want to see the UK win the Eurovision Song Contest.

“And I think they need The Impossible Idea as their tune.

“If it was my song then I would definitely, yeah.”

Well, That’s Entertainment I suppose.

Red Stripe Presents: This Feeling TV


Red Stripe presents: This Feeling TV: giving future festival headliners their first chance to shine along with some of the biggest names in the game

Music TV shows once offered bands their big break; any group seeking a platform and exposure fought for that memorable moment to spark chart success.

The likes of The Tube set the foundations for The Word and TFI Friday. They have all since gone along with Top of the Pops, The Chart Show and T4 all disappearing from our screens in recent years.
Jools Holland is the last man standing on terrestrial telly and few new indie bands can elbow their way into his line-up, let alone stay awake during the show.

Things have gone stale in music telly. Until now...

This Feeling and Red Stripe are taking things into their own hands to reverse the trend in 2017. A new partnership is born; ‘Red Stripe presents: This Feeling TV’.

It’s a new music show, hosted by Radio X DJ Gordon Smart, for the digital age providing a platform for new bands in the industry to showcase their talent with more established acts creating some much needed magic on the small screen.

Show 1...it's coming! Sneak peek...

The first show features Carl Barat, Martin Compston, Slaves (who flew back early from USA to do the show), DMA's, Tom Grennan, Black Honey AND a cameo from Liam Gallagher who requested DMA's go on early so he could watch the Manchester derby. Show 1 airs Monday 8th at midday.

“When Rock N Roll makes its glorious comeback, you can bet you will have seen it first on This Feeling TV.” Noel Gallagher

“This Feeling are once again putting their magic where their mouths are and giving kids with guitars the chance to shine on the screen with This Feeling TV.” Blossoms.

Liam Fray On Being A Pale Imitation Of Liam Gallagher


The Courteeners frontman has spoken out about the early comparisons that were made between Oasis and his band

The Courteeners frontman Liam Fray has admitted that he was “a pale imitation” of Liam Gallagher during the band’s early days.

As the Manchester band emerged in 2008 with their debut album ‘St Jude’, a number of commentators were quick to draw comparisons between the then-quartet and Oasis. However, those comparisons prompted a backlash from fans of the Britpop band following the release of that album.

Speaking about that time period in a new interview with The Independent, Fray opened up about how he “hated [The Courteeners’] ‘new Oasis'” tag and understood the backlash to those particular comparisons.

“I was never the new Liam Gallagher,” Fray admitted. “I was a pale imitation, but then it was never my intention to be an imitation at all.” Admitting that he may have been partly responsible for the comparisons, Fray said: “Oh, I tended to shout my mouth off, but who wouldn’t after seven pints on a Thursday night?

The Courteeeners will play a huge homecoming show at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground later this month. Speaking to NME ahead of the gig, Fray declared that fans shouldn’t expect “bells, whistles and spaceships” come the big day.

“That’s not our game,” he said. “We couldn’t walk around Manchester Arndale if we had spaceships coming out the roof. We’d get hammered for it. They wouldn’t serve us in the chippy if we started doing things like that.”
