And they never forgave us.

Of course. Oasis never again appeared on a music magazine front cover, and certainly their every subsequent album wasn't greeted with desperate delusionary "no really THIS is the return to form" reviews.

The Bends is pretty good listening before going out

“I know people who live for their reviews. I once asked somebody how their new album was going, they said, ‘Fucking great. I’ve only got one bad review.’ Who gives a fuck? ‘Only got one bad review.’ Fucking hell, really? Shit, Jesus. Here’s your second.”

He criticised the groups he presumably perceives as being in thrall to the Guardian. “You’re not seriously telling me that anyone is going to be listening to Foals in 12 years. Is anybody going to be fucking begging for Hot Chip to get back together in 22 years? I don’t fucking think so.”

He was characteristically trenchant about pretty much every other pop star at work today. “Who gives a shit what fucking One Direction do? Cocksuckers, all of them in rehab by the time they’re 30. Who gives a shit what Ellie Goulding is up to? Really? Adele, what?” Alex Turner and Royal Blood look good, he said, but “I’ve got a cat that’s more rock’n’roll than all of them put together.” Thom Yorke, meanwhile, should “give us a fucking shout” when he writes a song “as good as fucking Mony Mony”.

He did, however, express his admiration for Kanye West, one of the few people on whom he does not believe fame is wasted, and Chris Martin, “a friend of mine. That fucking guy can write a tune.”

Coincidentally, it was revealed on Friday morning that Gallagher will appear on Coldplay’s new album, A Head Full of Dreams.

He was certain, however, of Oasis’s stature, insisting they were one of the best groups of all time. “If all the greats are in the top four, we’re in the bottom of the top four, we’re kind of constantly fighting for fifth, just missing out.” He added that Oasis would be unlikely to reunite, because unlike most re-formed bands they could never be as big as they were first time round. If he changed his mind about returning, he said, his brother Liam would almost certainly say no, just to spite him.

Gallagher also said giving his interviews was his hobby. “I could do this all day long … I get to be a gobshite, and I get to do that thing: to be the last of a dying breed.”

LOL, possibly!

LESTER: I saw Bowie the other night.
LOU: Lucky you. I think it’s very sad.
LESTER: He ripped off all your riffs, obviously.
LOU: Everybody steals riffs. You steal yours. David wrote some really great songs.
LESTER: Aw, c’mon…anybody can write great songs! Sam the Sham wrote great songs! Did David ever write anything better than “Wooly Bully”?

Disagree, comedy gold from Noel here.

enjoying the part where "we didn't have carpet back in my day"

I’m aware that Radiohead have never had a fucking bad review. I reckon if Thom Yorke fucking shit into a light bulb and started blowing it like an empty beer bottle it’d probably get 9 out of 10 in fucking Mojo. I’m aware of that

Eric Banta (King Boy Pato), Tuesday, 10 November 2015 10:19 (four years ago) link

All the bands that get back together, all those ones you’ve mentioned [Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin] they didn’t have anybody in the line-up as fucking brilliant as me.

Fame’s wasted on these cunts today. Bar Kanye.

"Life on Mars" is not about pondering whether there's fucking life on Mars. Nobody knows what it's about.

I didn't know this until a couple of days ago, but this song was a take on some French fuckin' political writer called Jean Genet. But again, is the song about the fuckin' French Revolution? No, I don't think so.

And for all my talk of, "Well, what are his songs about? We don't really know what they're about," I think "Heroes" is quite straightforward. The sentiment is amazing: We can be heroes, if only for one day.

three years pass...

“I’m walking around today in a T-shirt, and I’m thinking ...” Gallagher looks up to mock-assess the weather, fully aware he is about to send some Guardian readers berserk, “... it’s not even remotely chilly. Sure, it’ll be bad for my grandkids. But I’ve not met them yet. They might be a load of cunts, d’you know what I mean?”
