Today’s Noelism: Noelpocalypse

18 February, 2011


I sometimes leave the room with a, ‘John Lennon was an idiot’, just to watch the explosion,” Noel once said about how to stir up his brother.

This is the greatest Noelism ever committed to print.

Liam Sounds Sane. For Once…

24 January, 2011



From Danger Bird Records:

“There was never any fear with Oasis,” says Liam, “You knew people were going to dig it because it was Oasis. But I’ll be honest, when the gigs come round with Beady Eye, we’ll be shitting it, because it’s a new thing. We’ve been rehearsing the live set for the last two weeks though and it’s sounding great. The template for Beady Eye is the same one we had for early Oasis. Put out a lot of great singles not on the album with great B-sides, keep it flowing. What happened with Oasis was you’d end up on an 18 month world tour and you wouldn’t have any time to put new music out. When you get big, it slows you down. When you start out fresh, it’s all about the tunes. And remember, we’re a new band, we’re not going to get above ourselves and start thinking we can play stadiums and arenas, we don’t want to jump the gun, we want to go out and do small gigs, get back into that vibe then do another album, and take it gradually, stay in the moment of being a new band.”

That sounds… level headed. Normal, intelligent, in fact. Maybe Oasis splitting really was the best thing for everyone…

This is Actually Good…

I don’t care that it’s basically a rehash of “All You Need is Love”, or any other middle-late Beatles songs for that matter. As generic as it is, this is a top tune. Maybe Beady Eye’s new album will transcend being “tolerable” and actually be good. Only the time will tell.

Also, is Andy Bell giving a throwback to his awesome specs from 1994 Glastonbury?

That’s A Lot Better…

I dare say that this is much better than Liam and Co.’s first single…

Liams Lost It Completely…

I don’t think he cares in the slightest about what he says in interviews anymore and, yet, instead of coming off as “devil-may-care” Liam from the good ol’ days, he comes off as a near-geriatric shell of his former self, who talks a lot and doesn’t have a lot to say.

From NME:

Liam Gallagher has told NME that he thinks Beady Eye’s debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ contains songs “as good as ‘Definitely Maybe’, if not better”.

I miss Noel…

Christmas Awesomeness…

Can’t wait to see the new viddy from Coldplay. Digging the swinging 6/8 beat at the end there.

Beady Eye.

I’m not saying its bad. I’m not saying its fucking terrific, either. At least its music. I look forward to hearing more.

Maybe Punks Not Dead Yet…

22 October, 2010



Keith Morris’, of the Circle Jerks, “I Don’t Belong”. This video conjures up the question of why there isn’t more politically charged punk making its way into the mainstream right now? Hell, politically charged music in general, for that matter. You’d think there’d be more kids running around with spiked hair, bad DIY dye jobs, wallet chains and a “fuck-all” attitude raising hell in the suburbs of Cincinnati or Omaha like in the 90’s. Unfortunately, though, the truth is, there isn’t. The baby boomers are resembling an attitude closer to this than the younger generations with their tea party bull shit. And, you know what? That makes me sad.

What’s up with that youth of today? (Also a great band).

What the Hell is this?

I don’t know whether to get aroused or run away?

“We’re definitely doing some kids stuff man. I’d like to get my kid looking as cool as me. And maybe our Kid (his brother Noel) could get some cos he’s a little fella isn’t he.”

Too Good Not To Post.

30 June, 2010




Liam’s response to “What is the inspiration for Beady Eye?” is classic. To be honest, I don’t really care what Liam, Gem and Andy’s new band sounds like as long as Andy Bell has a lot of input and it sounds like this:

As confused as I am about Lady Gaga, one minute I think she’s pop at its worst and the next I think she’s pop at its best, I can’t agree with her more on this quote from her interview with Larry King:

As Gaga told King: “I struggle with my feelings about the Church in particular….in terms of religion, I’m very religious. I was raised Catholic. I believe in Jesus. I believe in God. I’m very spiritual. I pray very much. But at the same time, there is no one religion that doesn’t hate or speak against or be prejudiced against another racial group or religious group, or sexual group. For that, I think religion is also bogus. So I suppose you could say I’m a quite religious woman that is very confused about religion. And I dream and envision a future where we have a more peaceful religion or a more peaceful world, a more peaceful state of mind for the younger generation. And that’s what I dream for.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

*On a side note, I still think she’s way hotter as a brunette…

Sweet Jesus…

I’m a Muse fan and all, but christ, Matt Bellamy, are you just a little influenced by Jeff Buckley on this one?
