Noel Gallagher On Getting Damon Albarn To Play On One Of His Albums


Noel Gallagher was asked in a recent interview now that he's sung on a Gorillaz track, will Damon repay the favor and sing on one of your albums?

He said "Well, he was supposed to play on my new record, but at the time I was recording, he was finishing the Gorillaz record and didn’t have the time. Hopefully next time. I’d like to get him to play melodica on something, which is what he was going to do for me on this record."

More On Noel Gallagher's Collaboration With The Gorillaz


Damon Albarn has talked about Gorillaz‘s collaboration with Noel Gallagher, describing the track as a “victory lap” and “the ultimate self-congratulatory Britpop moment”.

The two former Britpop rivals worked together on ‘We Got The Power’, which appears on Gorillaz’s upcoming album ‘Humanz’ and also features Savages singer Jehnny Beth.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Albarn said: “At one point, that track was Noel, me and [Blur‘s] Graham Coxon. It was the ultimate self-congratulatory Britpop moment. It was the victory lap, these geezers singing about all the power they had.”

“I went back and opted to doing it like you play something at the end of a film, as the credits roll,” he added. “Jehnny Beth was necessary. The testosterone levels were off the fucking scale.”

Gallagher’s Oasis and Albarn’s band Blur were famously involved in a chart battle during the ’90s, but the pair have since become friends.

Speaking about their former rivalry, Albarn said: “Noel is not stupid. I love him for that. There was a point when they were set against us. And he had the advantage. He was from the working-class band. He was playing up to that and using it very successfully. I found it difficult to counter. What do you say? It’s like when you get called ‘liberal elite’ by right-wingers. The best I can say is ‘Call me liberal, but don’t call me elite’.”

Albarn added of working with Gallagher: “He’s really musical. He’s got a great tone to his voice. I love his guitar playing. And he’s funny as shit. He’s fucking brilliant company.”

Damon previously said that it was “really great” and that Gallagher is “fantastic in the studio”, adding: “It’s nice when you see how someone goes about their business.”

Gorillaz’s new album ‘Humanz’ comes out on Friday (April 28).

Noel Gallagher: “Nobody Gives A F**k What Liam Thinks About Anything”


The thawing of the mid-’90s Britpop feud between Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn during their Oasis and Blur days has resulted in Gallagher contributing background vocals to “We Got the Power,” a song on Gorillaz‘s upcoming album, Humanz. In a new interview, the two men talk about how the track came together, with both of them taking shots at Noel’s brother Liam.

“In a sort of lighthearted way, I’d promised Noel he could be on this record,” Albarn told Vulture. “He was always like, ‘I want to be on the next Gorillaz record,’ and I was like, ‘Sure.’ I thought it might be cute, the idea of us singing about the power to love each other. Of course, no one’s asked Liam what he thinks about the song yet. No doubt he’d have a fantastic one-liner about what a bunch of f—ing knobheads we are.”

Liam had praised Blur’s most recent release, calling “Lonesome Street” the “song of the year.” When that fact was brought up to Albarn, he quipped, “Yeah, but The Magic Whip didn’t have his brother and I singing about loving each other.”

Noel had a different take on how he wound up on Humanz. “Damon and I were at a party at [former Clash bassist] Paul Simonon’s house, and we had a very brief, casual chat about doing some stuff together,” he recalled. “I went away on tour for a couple of years, and then somebody called me and said, ‘Would you be up for working on the new Gorillaz record?’ I said, ‘If you can make the time work, I’m up for it.’ It all went quiet again for ages. And then, one day, out of the blue, one of his people called one of my people and asked what was I doing next week. I just happened to have a week off, and I was in London.”

However, they agree that recording it required two sessions, and that they spent part of it discussing soccer (Albarn supports Chelsea and Noel is famously a Manchester City fan). Also, neither of them is too concerned with how Liam would react to “We Got the Power.”

“Listen, nobody gives a f— what Liam thinks about anything,” Noel said.

Noel Gallagher Says His New Album Will Be Out In November


Noel Gallagher has teased the release date of his long-awaited new album.

The former Oasis man has been working on his third album with the High Flying Birds, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Chasing Yesterday‘, with producer David Holmes – revealing last year that the album would be finished by June.

Now, he’s given fans an update on the long-awaited record. Appearing this weekend on Russell Brand’s Radio X show, Gallagher said “I believe it’s slated for a November release”. When pushed for a song title, he said “there’s one just called instrumental number three”.

Speaking to NME in April 2016, Noel revealed that for his third solo record he’ll be mixing things up in the creative process. “I am doing something different this time, to amuse myself – I am writing in the studio for the first time. As a rule I’ve not allowed myself to go in with any completed songs, so I am writing in there, it’s happening all around me during the day.”

“Usually I’ll go in, play a song, record an acoustic version of it and then I’ll think of something and we’ll head toward it. Everything we do is a forward motion toward that point. When you’re writing in the studio you don’t know where you’re going, so the flavour of it all can constantly shift. It’s a bit chaotic but the end results are great so far.”

Last year, producer David Holmes told Gigwise: “People are going to be surprised. I think people love Noel and they’re desperate for him to make a really big, bold, uptempo beast of a record – a lot of Noel’s music is quite mid-tempo. This one is quite fun.”

While last week it was rumoured that Gem Archer had joined the High Flying Birds, Noel will be kicking off a UK and European tour in July to support U2 for the anniversary of ‘The Joshua Tree’ – something that Liam attacked him for, accusing him of ‘brown-nosing’ the band.

Absolute Radio 90s Reveals Oasis As The Greatest Band Of The 1990’s


The UK’s only 90s radio station Absolute Radio 90s has enlisted the help of its listeners to find the best song, album and year of the decade and with more than 50,000 votes cast, Oasis have been officially crowned number one.

Liam and Noel topped the polls, scooping title of best album and best song. Their second album What’s the Story (Morning Glory) beat Nirvana, Blur and REM to take the top spot, while Don’t Look Back in Anger pipped Common People, Bittersweet Symphony and Creep to win best track.

Absolute Radio’s Breakfast Show host Christian O’Connell said “Absolute Radio 90s listeners have spoken and Oasis have won the lot. Surely they have to get back together now?”

By voting for their favourites across different categories, listeners also chose 1996 as the definitive year of the decade - a very memorable year for the Oasis boys.

1996 was the year that 2.5 million people fought over 250,000 tickets for two Oasis shows at Knebworth, but for the Mancunians it's their two gigs at Maine Road - on April 27 and April 28 - that meant the most.

Not only did it see them raised from a theatre to a stadium band, but it also put them on stage in the football stadium that meant most to them - the home of the team they'd spent a lifetime supporting, Manchester City Football Club.

The infamous Maine Road gigs saw Liam re-join the band after one of many definitive arguments with brother Noel.

Damon Albarn On Working With Noel Gallagher


Damon Albarn has spoken to Q about working with Noel Gallagher on 'We Got The Power' that features on the Gorillaz new album 'Humanz'

He said "It's like the song at the end of the movie. It went through so many versions. At one point I got carried away and had Graham and Noel and me. It was going back to the glory days of the '90s! It was not working at all, and then Jehnny involved. When we play it live, Noel and DRAM will sing it harmonies together. Now that's progression."

On This Day In Oasis History...


"Some Might Say" is a song by British rock band Oasis and was released on the 24th April 1995.

The song was written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was the first single to be released from their definitive second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory ? in 1995, and provided the band with their first #1 in the UK Singles Chart.

















The track was apparently inspired by the Small Faces and/or T-Rex. It was the last Oasis track to feature original drummer Tony McCarroll, who was asked to leave the band before the main recording sessions for (What's the Story) Morning Glory ? when tensions arose between McCarroll and the Gallagher brothers. The rest of the tracks on the album feature Alan White on drums.

The sleeve artwork, shot at Cromford railway station in Derbyshire, England, features art director Brian Cannon's father with wheelbarrow and his mother with mop. Also pictured are Matthew Sankey, Cannon's aide and Carla Knox, barmaid of his local pub. Liam Gallagher can be seen on the bridge whilst Noel can be viewed with a watering can. Cannon himself rates this piece amongst his greatest works.

The planned promo video for the song was canceled due to Liam not turning up for the shoot. Instead, a makeshift video was created using footage from the "Cigarettes & Alcohol" and US "Supersonic" videos.

B-sides
Aside from the title song, the single boasts some of Oasis' finest B-sides, all of which were deemed worthy to grace the critically acclaimed Masterplan album. "Talk Tonight", is one of many acoustic B-side tracks sung by Noel, and was, at the time, the most vulnerable song he had attempted. It was inspired by the near-breakup of the band in Los Angeles in autumn 1994, when Noel walked out without telling anyone and headed for San Francisco.

The B-side "Acquiesce" was released as part of the Stop the Clocks EP in promotion their compilation album, Stop the Clocks.

In an interview promoting the compilation album, Stop the Clocks, Noel stated that "Some Might Say" is the "archetypical Oasis song' and 'defines what Oasis is". Noel added later in the interview that along with "Some Might Say", its b-side, "Acquiesce", was also the song that defined Oasis.

The song also appears on Stop the Clocks, as do two of the b-sides. Suprisingly, this means that the "Some Might Say" single contains the fourth largest number of tracks to appear on Stop the Clocks of any Oasis release (after Definitely Maybe, Morning Glory and The Masterplan). Therefore, more songs from this single ended up on Stop the Clocks than Don't Believe the Truth (2 songs), Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, Heathen Chemistry (1 song each) and Be Here Now (no songs from this album appear on Stop the Clocks).

"Some Might Say" is a playable track in both Guitar Hero World Tour and The European version of Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades.

Has Gem Archer Joined Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds?


Former Oasis guitarist Gem Archer is rumoured to have joined Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds.

The pair played together in Oasis from 1999 when Archer stepped in to replace Bonehead on guitar. When the band split, Archer then went on to play with frontman Liam Gallagher in Beady Eye until their demise.

Now, as The List reports, rumours are circulating that Archer has joined Liam’s rival band as touring guitarist in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, sharing his duties with longstanding member Tim Smith. The rumours arose after the band’s Wikipedia page was updated to list Archer as a member from 2017 onwards.

Noel and Gem previously reunited in 2015 at a small show in Lincoln, where the pair performed together for the first time in five years to play Oasis songs ‘Listen Up’, ‘Cast No Shadow’, ‘Slide Away’ and ‘Wonderwall’.

Noel Gallagher’s representatives said ‘no comment’ when approached by NME.
