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…

10 January, 2011

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…

3 January, 2011

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

Liams Lost It Completely…

14 December, 2010

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…

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.

Happy Birthday, Liam G.

“My days of waking up with someone else’s chandelier in my bed are over. I’ve got kids now, I’m more chilled out.”

Noely G. is back on Talksport.

Also, that Sun ad gets me everytime. Cheeky little ginger…

Liam’s Gem…

Liam on making childrens clothes… and Noel…

“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.”

Paul Weller is Cool…

You can definitely see where Liam Gallagher gets his interview ‘tude from…

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:

What’s Your Story?

Nice to see there are good looking girls in America that like Oasis.

Liam Gallagher at Cannes, talking about his new fookin’ movie, mahn. In all honesty, he seems completely self aware and intent on making an actually good movie.

His new band is doing the soundtrack, though?

Liams Making a Fookin’ Movie, Mahn…

14 May, 2010

Based on the book of the same name, a word-of-mouth smash by Sixties face Richard DiLello, it’s a film about the Beatles – but like none you’ve ever seen before.

DeLillo worked for Apple Corps, the Fab Four’s corporation that they described as “an attempt at ‘Western Communism’.”

The Longest Cocktail Party has been called ‘the only book about the Beatles that’ll make you laugh’. Peppered with the hilarious and poignant details that a writer only gets from really being there, it’s Let It Be meets The Thick of It.

The film is currently set to go into production in early 2011.

Seriouisly, Liam, we know you always have the best of intentions, and you genuinely do seem to be in it for the fun of it, maybe a little for the cash, too, when it comes to your side endeavors, but maybe film isn’t the way to go. Although, most Beatles movies seem to be either corporate documentaries or crap, except maybe this, so this might be a good thing.

Oasis stars Andy Bell and Gem Archer must have sore backsides from sitting on the fence.
Neither bass player Andy nor guitarist Gem have taken sides with either Liam or Noel Gallagher since the Oasis split last summer.
But Liam is about to get them into rehearsal for live dates later this year and Noel has also needed the lads for demo sessions.
So it’s all pointing towards some difficult times when the inevitable clash of commitments happens.
A source said: “It’s a tricky situation for Gem and Andy.
“They are working with both Liam and Noel. Liam’s begun rehearsing tracks for his new project, while Noel has been doing demos of songs as well.
“It’s great for Gem and Andy, though. They get paid twice, but it’s bound to lead to trouble in the future.”
I hear Noel has more than enough material for a solo album.
He’s had house moving and family duties to take care of but once that has settled I’m sure he’ll be back to work.
Especially after another taste of the action on stage with Paul Weller last week.
He has also been recording with dance producers Amorphous Androgynous.
Duo Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans are responsible for one of the best rave tracks of all time – 1991’s Papua New Guinea, recorded under the name Future Sound Of London.
Last year the duo re-tooled Oasis single Falling Down to spectacular psychedelic effect.
A lot of people are excited to hear what tunes will emerge, me included.

Interesting… I’m not sure how I feel about this, if its true. I mean, ya it will be cool to have the band still working together amongst themselves, but I think this will just create musical inbreeding. Although, Noel could just be using Andy and Gem as demo musicians, not as his actual studio musicians, so we’ll have to see…

This Movie Will be Great…

14 April, 2010

Russell Brand has said his latest film role has been inspired by the likes of Liam and Noel Gallagher, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Morrissey.

The comic is currently filming for Get Him To The Greek, which sees him reprise his character Aldous Snow from 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

In the new film, Snow fronts a band called Infant Sorrow, and when he was asked whether any musicians had inspired the role, he replied: “Lots. Jagger, Keith Richards, Bowie, Morrissey, Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher. I’m friendly with some musicians so I’m able to watch them. They’re very different from comedians. They’re rude – at the least the ones I know. They’re so self-assured.”

To be honest I wasn’t that excited for this movie when I saw the trailer, but after considering how close Brand is with a lot of my heroes, maybe his performance will be pretty authentic.


Noel, TCT, TV Broadcast…

Noel could do this and this only for the rest of his career and I can guarantee that he would be successful and keep his legendary status.

Amazing Interview…

5 April, 2010

Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs from Oasis, and now The Vortex, gave one of the best interviews I’ve ever read to

Yes absolutely, you know absolutely… I look back on them days as the proudest days of my life, I wouldn’t rewind the clock and not do it again. That’s an absolutely brilliant time of my life to be a part of it, yes, I’m dead proud when you walk in a shop and you hear a record you played on. Absolutely, to say you were a part of that band and what they achieved and what they did and recorded, then it’s just a massive thing, so definitely, I absolutely love it man.

Definitely Read the Full Interview Here…

Oh, Man…

Liam Gallagher will make a guest appearance on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants later this year.

The former Oasis man worked on the project, providing the voice of the Salmon King – during a recent trip to New York. His cameo is expected to air during a one-hour special this summer.
