On This Day In Oasis History...


"The Importance Of Being Idle" is a song on the British rock band Oasis' sixth album, Don't Believe the Truth, written and sung by lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was the second single released from the album in the UK, on August 22, 2005, where it debuted at #1. It was also the first time that Oasis earned two successive #1's in the same calendar year. It was written by Gallagher sometime during the summer of 2004, before the band made their final attempt at recording what would become Don't Believe the Truth. He got the title from the Mark Twain book of the same name which he found whilst cleaning out his garage (it belonged not to him but to girlfriend Sara McDonald.)

Musically, as Noel has commented, the song sounds like tunes from two British bands, The Kinks and The La's. In particular, the sentiment expressed is noticeably similar to The Kinks' "Sunny Afternoon" and "Dead End Street", and the use of falsetto for every other verse line recalls The La's "Feelin'". The guitar sound is similar also to The La's b-sides; "Clean Prophet" and "Over". It also is a breakaway from the sound of Oasis's latter albums, especially the straight ahead rock 'n' roll anthems of Heathen Chemistry. The keyboard used on the pre-chorus sections was bought by bassist Andy Bell from the auction website eBay.

Noel has said that the lyrics of "The Importance of Being Idle" are inspired by his own laziness. Some of the second verse, with the reference to begging his doctor for "one more line", seems to be referring to an actual event as this resembles Noel's account of how he gave up cocaine in 1998.





















Most reviewers acclaimed the track as one of the highlights of Don't Believe the Truth, which itself was widely praised as a marked return to form. The band mentioned in interviews in June that it would become the second single, after the UK Number One "Lyla". The b-sides are Liam Gallagher's "Pass Me Down the Wine" and Gem Archer's "The Quiet Ones."



The promo film was directed by Dawn Shadforth, (whose previous videos include Kylie Minogue's award-winning "Can't Get You Out Of My Head"). Shadforth's film for "The Importance of Being Idle' starred Welsh actor Rhys Ifans and homages the style of early 1960s kitchen sink drama British films, and is set during the build up to a funeral procession in a northern town, with the extravagant undertakers parading the coffin at the video's climax and Ifans playing the part of a high-kicking funeral director. The video is based on the film and play Billy Liar with Ifans playing the role of Billy. Noel and Liam therefore play Shadrack & Duxbury, the owners of the funeral parlour where Billy works. The rest band (Gem,Andy and Zak) make a brief appearance as lazy workers playing cards in an undertaker's office. It was widely acclaimed at the time as being probably the best video Oasis had ever made, not least by the band themselves, who were said to be very happy with the finished product. The video is very similar in style and concept to the music video for "Dead End Street" by The Kinks.

Q Magazine readers placed the song at #1 in a list of 2005's greatest tracks.

The video for the song was voted the video of the year at the NME Awards.

The song is included on Oasis' 'best-of' album Stop the Clocks.

Liam Gallagher Confirms Australian Show


Liam Gallagher will play this year’s Falls Festivals around Australia.

He let the cat out of the bag in a new interview with GQ Australia magazine.

“We’re coming out there, doing the Falls Festival,” Gallagher said. “So, we’re gonna be there for New Year’s Eve. So I can’t wait, man — love it. It’s beautiful. I’m bringing me two boys out as well, they’re at the age now where they can come and travel.”

No details have been announced yet for tickets, as soon as they are I will post them.

Read An Extract From Liam Gallagher's Interview With GQ Australia


The famed Oasis frontman confirms he’s bringing his debut solo sounds – and the kids – Down Under at the end of the year.

In the next issue of GQ Australia - on sale August 28 - swaggering Oasis frontman and King of Manchester, Liam Gallagher, confirms he’s to play Falls Festival this December/January.

The news drops in a wide-ranging – and expletive-laden – piece that also explores his failed sobriety, debut solo album, recent divorce and birth of a lovechild, and his ongoing want to wind up brother Noel.

Elsewhere, Gallagher champions local musos DMAs as well as niche Australian animated series, The Big Lez Show.

Read below an exclusive extract in which the 44 year-old outs his Australian plans – and knowledge of Wagga Wagga GQ Australia’s Sept/Oct ‘Big Style Issue’ is on sale Monday August 28

GQ: Do you think a lot of rock ‘n’ roll frontmen have gone a bit soft?

Liam Gallagher: Oh, yeah, without a doubt. But I don’t think rock ’n’ roll has. It’s always there if you want it. It’s just people are choosing not to do it because apparently, it’s not trendy at the moment...

There’s a lot of these rock ’n’ roll bands, or so-called rock ’n’ roll bands – they’ve got guitars and that but they’re wearing ’em like pieces of jewellery.

Plug the fucking thing in and turn it up. The sounds are meant to be loud, and concerts are gonna be loud, you know what I mean? And some rock ’n’ roll bands are making dance records – they’re sitting on the fence with a foot in the dance world... It’s like, ‘Make your fucking mind up, man’.

Since you’re considered one of the greatest frontmen of our time...

…Yeah. Without a doubt. Without a doubt!

...well, what makes a good frontman – what are these frauds lacking?

Life, man. Life experiences. No one seems to be getting in any trouble or getting ... I mean, I guess, it’s getting in trouble and getting out of it. They just seem to be doing a gig and going home. And that ain’t happening for me. Obviously, I’ve calmed down a lot from when I was 20 and 30 and that... Just these young bands today, man...

… a lot of people would say the same about what’s being produced in Australia.

I don’t know much about Australian music – I know there’s that band DMAs, I went to see them a couple of weeks ago, and I like what I see. Man, they got some good tunes in there. But I think everyone seems to be going’ to bed after the gig, you know what I mean? No one’s going out, fucking getting in shit. Maybe it’s to do with the drugs. Maybe the drugs are shit? And the beer’s watered down, and all...

It’s been a few years since you were in Australia. How do you look back on the times that you’ve been here?

I like it, man. My mate lives out there. He lives in a place called Wagga Wagga or something like that?

Yeah, Wagga Wagga – so good they named it twice.

It’s like the New York of Australia [laughs]. Every time I’ve been out there, it’s been cool. And we’re coming out there, doing the Falls Festival. So, we’re gonna be there for New Year’s Eve. So I can’t wait, man –  love it. It’s beautiful. I’m bringing me two boys out as well, they’re at the age now where they can come and travel.

They’re mad for this stoner cartoon, The Big Lez Show. It’s like a fucking Australian Cheech and Chong. They love a bit of that Australian vibe.

On This Day In Oasis History...


Be Here Now is the third studio album by the English rock band Oasis. Released on August 21 1997, the album was highly anticipated by both music critics and fans as a result of the band's previous worldwide successes with their 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe, and its 1995 follow up (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. The album's pre-release build up led to considerable hype within both the music and mainstream press. At that point, Oasis were at the height of their fame, and Be Here Now became the UK's fastest selling album to date, selling over 420,000 units on the first day of release alone, and over one million within two weeks. As of 2007, the album has sold eight million copies worldwide.

Oasis' management company Ignition were aware of the danger of overexposure, and before its release they sought to control the media's access to the album. Ignition's campaign included limiting pre-release radio airplay, and requesting that journalists sign gag agreements. These tactics resulted in the alienation of members of both the music and mainstream media, as well as many industry members connected with the band. Ignition's attempts to limit pre-release access to the album only served to fuel large scale speculation and publicity within the British music scene.

Artistically Be Here Now failed to live up to the expectations that preceded its release. Although initial reviews were positive, retrospectively the album is viewed by much of the music press and by most members of the band as over-indulgent and bloated. In 2007, Q magazine described Be Here Now as "a disastrous, overblown folly—the moment when Oasis, their judgement clouded by drugs and blanket adulation, ran aground on their own sky-high self-belief." The album's producer Owen Morris said of the recording sessions: "The only reason anyone was there was the money. Noel had decided Liam was a shit singer. Liam had decided he hated Noel's songs [...] Massive amounts of drugs. Big fights. Bad vibes. Shit recordings." None of its songs were included on the band's 2006 "best of" compilation album Stop the Clocks.






















Album cover
The cover image to Be Here Now was shot at the Stock Hotel in Hertfordshire in April 1997. It features the band standing outside the hotel surrounded by assorted props. At the centre of the image is a Rolls Royce floating in a swimming pool. The photographer Michael Spencer Johns said the original concept involved shooting each band member in various locations around the world, but when the cost proved prohibitive, the shoot was relocated to the Stock Hotel. Spencer remarked that the shoot "degenerated into chaos", adding that "by 8pm, everyone was in the bar, there were schoolkids all over the set, and the lighting crew couldn't start the generator.

It was Alice in Wonderland meets Apocalypse Now." Despite various meanings people have tried to read into the selection of the cover props, Johns said Gallagher simply selected items from the BBC props store he thought would look good in the picture. Two of the props that had considered thought in their inclusion were the inflatable globe (intended as a homage to the sleeve of Definitely Maybe) and the Rolls Royce, which was suggested by Arthurs. The release date in each region was commemorated on the calendar pictured on the sleeve; Harris said the dating "[encouraged] fans to believe that to buy a copy on the day it appeared was to participate in some kind of historical event."

Liam Gallagher Says He Would Rather Kick Back On The Sofa Than Party With Stars


Liam Gallagher has vowed to always shun the celebrity champagne circuit, saying: “I’ve been to them parties… you only fool me once.”

The singer, who revels in his jack-the-lad reputation, says he would rather kick back on the sofa than party with stars.

He said: “The amount of parties I’ve turned down. I turn them down constantly. It was full of k**bheads in the ­Nineties, now it’s full of k**bheads with cameras on their phones. I’d rather stay in.”

The ex- Oasis frontman says brother Noel – who celebrated his 50th in May with stars including Madonna and Bono – is “lost in a celebrity world.”

Noel is to headline the ­re­­­opening of the IS-bombed Manchester Arena next month alongside pop star Rick Astley.

Liam, 44, performing tomorrow night in Japan, said: “I’m loving singing, I’m not here for celebrity. I’ve done all that nonsense.

“I’ve seen through it. I’m just here to play some gigs, and try to turn the next rock ’n’ roll kids on to it. I’ve no time for partying with Brad Pitt.

“I’m sure he’s a nice guy and throws a great party, but I’m not interested. I want to do my gigs and try and muster up feelings for the youth to carry the torch on.

“That’s what it’s about. It’s time to build rock up from the bottom again.”

The singer added: “I don’t think I was seduced by celebrity. But I definitely like going to nice places to eat.”

James Corden Fires Back At Liam Gallagher


Liam Gallagher told GQ last week there was “no f*cking chance” he would appear on James Corden’s 'Carpool Karaoke'.

“No, thank you very much, No fucking chance mate. With that fat bloke from Kevin and Perry?”

Gallagher was referring to Gavin & Stacey, that Corden starred in before taking over The Late Late Show in 2015. “I don’t need to watch it to know I won’t like it. James Corden is a knobhead”.

When asked by The Daily Beast if he saw the remarks he said “I did see that, yeah, God, I just don’t know how we’ll carry on, I don’t how we’ll even think of carrying on. Yeah, God, what will we do?”.
