voted to bump this thread but it was a close race between this, "shit that looks like an onion article but isn't" and "thread for the death of the newspaper industry"

WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT GALLAGHER . .

Liam Gallagher: “I’m not a**** with what he’s doing. I’m sure it will all be very civilised and grown-up. His gigs will be like those that you can really stroke your chin at.”

Robbie Williams: “Noel’s run out of other people’s ideas.”

Damon Albarn: “Noel used to take the p*** out of me and it really, really hurt.”

Justin Hawkins (lead singer of The Darkness): “Noel Gallagher is an overrated guitarist losing his grip on his credibility who just has to fire shots on his way down. It’s kind of a shame, really.”

Elton John: “He’s an absolute t***** and he looks like Parker from Thunderbirds.”

Apparently, Noel and Damon bumped into each other in a club, buried hatchet, became mates again.

anyway, I have heard the album.

It's pretty dull, really. The newest single is alright.

Much better than anything involving Liam the past years. Noel is not the great songwriter he used to be in the mid 90s, but I like the way he has at least tried to pay attention to production values. The somewhat "smoother" sound fits him.

The Beady Eye album is better.

Mark G, Friday, 28 October 2011 14:01 (five years ago) Permalink

Not at all. The Beady Eye album is too rock'n'roll. And it has the pathetic loser Liam Gallagher on it.

Avril Lavigne had a fairly prominent Toronto music critic banned from her gig this week too!

Man, Geir's been ratcheting it up this week. "too rock'n'roll", lol.

I imagine Noel's High Flying Birds vs Liam's Beady Eye would be one of the least shit given about ILM polls of all time.
Such a long way from selling 1/4 million tickets in a morning to publicly slating each other's work to attempt to garner interest.

Yeah, I was into Oasis a lot longer than I should've bothered, in retrospect, but even I can't be bothered to give a shit at this point. Bought the Beady Eye album, but only because I found a promo copy for like 2 bucks.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Friday, 28 October 2011 14:18 (five years ago) Permalink

I bought the 12" of 'Live Forever' and that's it. I care about Noel and Liam arguing about which of their albums is better about as much as I care about two tramps arguing over whether Tennants is better than Special Brew.

man it's so hard to work out what you're meant to be reading when people asterisk out b-list swear words. A****.

Local Christian Blues (schlump), Friday, 28 October 2011 14:29 (five years ago) Permalink

That Robbie quote would be pretty barbed if it couldn't be applied to him equally as much. Hard to imagine Damon giving a shit about what anyone thought about him, ever. It says something about Noel's downward trajectory when even Justin Hawkins can get a jab in. What's next, criticism from Crispin Urqhart Newton Taylor from Kula Shaker? And trust Elton to get in the bitchiest (and funniest) comment. Rich coming from someone who looks like a grown up Jimmy Krankie.

it doesn't really though, does it

you could also state that it says something about both of those artists when even pun-loving ilx user 'snoball', who is decidedly less famous than either, can get a jab in

We All Had Guess Papers (DJ Mencap), Friday, 28 October 2011 14:37 (five years ago) Permalink

I think those comments are very old. Certainly, the Elton one is.

Mark G, Friday, 28 October 2011 14:38 (five years ago) Permalink

anyway this was supposed to be about the comedy value of the newspaper making out that them not getting review tickets for a concert is (a) a 'news story' and (b) something Noel Gallagher had any input in or awareness of

Mark G, Friday, 28 October 2011 15:00 (five years ago) Permalink

Meh. I liked Oasis' first two albums in the '90s - ever since then I've just got the feeling Noel has been re-writing the same song over and over again.

Noel should have gone "fuck it" and just released the FSOL album instead, widespread disinterest in this thing is only going to make ppl less curious when that drops

one of the songs is used on ad for something dreary and very british. fits very well. enough said.

new single is surprisingly fun it's like a cross between Plastic Bertrand/Slade/The Wombles/Ricky Martin and apparently it has pissed off a large part of his fanbase.
If you heard it on the radio you probably wouldnt even know it was Noel.

In the meantime, Liam's album is outselling the rest of the UK Top 20 combined.

I'm glad I had my turn-of-the-century Oasis fan experiences but I wish people would stop calling the Gallaghers brilliant/funny/intelligent interviewees.

“Our government are seemingly powerless to fucking stop this shit,” said Gallagher recent attacks. “I have children and they’re growing up in London and they take the tube, I take the tube – we all take public transport because I can’t drive.

“And there’s bombers roaming free around the whole fucking city and the government and the one before them and the one after that will be powerless to stop it because of some hippy ideal about people’s religious beliefs.”

[...]

Speaking of his emotional performance, Gallagher added: “‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ was already a fucking huge anthem before that fucking Islamic fucking goon put that bomb in the arena.

“When I was singing it at the Manchester concert a little part of you was like ‘fucking wow’, but then a bigger part of you was thinking I wish this had never happened in the first place and you’d prefer the song was just as it was.”
