Noel Gallagher, A life in music (MIkeC)




5-10-15-20 features artists talking about the songs and albums that made an impact on them throughout their lives, five years at a time.

Noel Gallagher is taking a piss when I walk into his corner room at Manhattan's Bowery Hotel. He washes his hands, walks out of the bathroom, and sits down on the couch. He's relaxed, if a bit weary. There is a small, stuffed leather pig in the room, and he seems slightly amused by it. We're used to Gallagher (figuratively) pissing on other bands (or his brother), but, at 44, the onetime Oasis songwriter, guitarist, and singer has mellowed-- though that doesn't stop him from dropping roughly 50 f-bombs during our 30-minute interview. Gallagher's humor comes naturally to him, and he's not really trying to be funny when he flows through expletives with casual finesse.

But he is funny, even if his legendary world-beating days-- the ones where he claimed to be a superhero and said bands like Coldplay were akin to "bland, faceless fucking trainee police officers"-- are in the past. In fact, he likes Coldplay. "When I heard 'Yellow' for the first time, I immediately picked up the guitar and went, 'Fucking bastards, why didn't I write that?'," he says now. "I feel that way about a lot of their songs."

Noel Gallagher: 'I re-recorded Oasis song after Liam refused to sing it'


Noel Gallagher has revealed that two of the tracks on his debut solo album were recorded by Oasis twice.

Speaking in the video interview above, the singer admitted that the track '(I Wanna Live in a Dream in My) Record Machine' was attempted by his former band but wasn't included on any of their albums.

Gallagher said: "It was recorded for 'Don't Believe The Truth' but Liam either refused to sing it or couldn't sing it. I can't remember which one it was.

"Then we re-recorded it for 'Dig Out Your Soul' and it had a 100 piece choir on it. And for whatever reason - I think Liam had fucked off home to get married or something - (it wasn't finished)...It's a shame Liam never got round to singing it.

"It would have made 'Dig Out Your Soul' 10 percent better. I was determined to get it out there. It's been sitting around for 10 years! It's the most Oasis sounding thing on the record, because it was written for Oasis."

In the second part of the interview which can be seen below, Gallagher adds that a similar thing happened with album closer 'Stop The Clocks'

Declan O'Rourke and Paul Weller.


"Despite plaudits from Paul Weller (who recently chose “Galileo” as the song he wished he’d written from the last 20 years), Snow Patrol (who invited him to play guitar with them at the Oxegen Festival), and Josh Groban and Eddi Reader (both of whom have covered his songs), Dublin singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke hasn’t yet achieved the commercial success to match his star-studded championing. Released through his own Rimecoat Records label, his third album, the bizarrely titled Mag Pai Zai, is unlikely to change matters, such is its subdued and slightly idiosyncratic nature. There are a few concessions to the more commercial folk-rock sound of its predecessor, Big Bad Beautiful World, such as lead single “A Little Something,” a gorgeous string-soaked tale of unrequited love, the Neil Young-esque blues of “Caterpillar DNA,” and the uplifting ukulele-led Hawaiian-style ditty “Lightning Bird Wind River Man.” But elsewhere, O’Rourke has used his newfound freedom to showcase his unique storytelling with an eclectic production and elastic vocal range, which sees him effortlessly switch from soaring falsetto on the life-affirming “Be Brave and Believe” to dark-timbred baritone on the Tony Bennett-referencing old-school crooner “Dancing Song.” Opening track “Slieve Boom” starts out with a gently plucked mandolin before a flurry of skittering rhythms and haunting violins kicks in, echoing the song’s narrative of a midnight journey through various isolated towns, “Langley’s Requiem” is a suitably eerie piano ballad based on the true tale of the Collyer Brothers, two compulsive hoarders who lived as hermits in 1930s New York, while “The Old Black Crow” sees O’Rourke adopt his best long Long John Silver impression as he swaggers and even caws his way through an unashamedly silly romp about the hardship of being a crow. The latter may be at odds with his rather moody poetic reputation, but it’s indicative of how the album consistently mines captivating material from the most obscure subject matter. Mag Pai Zai should ensure that the rave reviews keep on coming, but it deserves to find a wider audience beyond his array of celebrity admirers."

Paul Ties the Knot...


Paul McCartney has married his fiancée Nancy Shevell this afternoon (October 9).

The former Beatle tied the knot at London's Marylebone Register Office, where he also married his first wife Linda Eastman. The wedding has also been held on the same day as John Lennon's birthday.

The couple waved to crowds behind security barries after they made the short drive from McCartney's home in London's St John's Wood to the venue.

Earlier fellow Beatle, Ringo Starr was spotted arriving with around 30 other guests, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The guitarist, who is currently promoting his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds', has said that he really fancies the idea of fronting a group made up of indie superstars.

Specifically, Noel has said he would like the line-up to consist of himself, former Smiths and Cribs guitarist Johnny Marr, Paul Weller and current Primal Scream and former Stone Roses bassist Mani.

Gallagher added that he would make sure his group had nothing in common with Mick Jagger's new outfit SuperHeavy which features the likes of Joss Stone and Damian Marley, branding the group "fucking ridiculous".

The Action and Paul Weller by François Gorin.

Le label Edsel était la danseuse de Jake Riviera et Elvis Costello, et une aubaine pour les gars des années 80 qui certains soirs se sentaient mieux dans un décor de quinze ou vingt ans d'âge. On y trouvait du son vintage et de la légende maudite en boîte, avec un net penchant rhythm'n'blues, northern soul, mod, brit-psych… C'est ainsi que j'ai entendu d'abord Since I lost my baby par The Action et non par The Temptations (ça viendra l'année suivante). C'est une merveilleuse chanson de Smokey Robinson, dont les Tempts ont déposé la version ultime, ne m'obligez pas à radoter là-dessus, consultez vos archives.

Celle des petits mods de Kentish Town n'a pas la même plénitude. Elle est plus aiguë, plus inquiète, plus, hmm, anglaise. Production George Martin mais sans fioritures. On est en juillet 1966 et plus du côté des Small Faces pas encore convertis aux effets, filtres et philtres, que des Beatles déjà s'ébrouant déguisés en Merlins dans le chaudron de Revolver. Paul Weller n'hésite pas, dans ses notes de pochette, à comparer favorablement le chanteur de The Action, Reggie King, à son idole Steve Mariott. Sans doute emporté par l'enthousiasme un peu morbide qu'on réserve aux causes perdues.

Le quintette n'a eu que quelques années d'existence mais il n'est pas tombé sur les pires : 1963-69. Avec un pic d'activité au milieu, soldé par une brochette de cinq singles entre 1965 et 1967. C'est peu, où est l'album qui les inscrirait dans l'histoire ? Il n'est jamais sorti, et la compile Edsel n'en donne qu'un aperçu. Les morceaux les plus anciens, dont une reprise sympathique du In my lonely room de Martha and the Vandellas (Heatwave était pris par les Who), ont quelque chose d'emprunté. Avec Since I lost my baby, tout est en place. The Action a une chanson en or, les bonnes gueules, bonnes coupes de cheveux, bons habits, et le défaut majeur d'être un enjeu mineur pour le label Parlophone : après les Beatles, après les Hollies…
