(sorry for some videos you can see on YouTube only and not onsite,
it happens using Explorer, it's their fault). 
I was saying Milan is becoming a new place for "fucking hippies", as Noel and Alan say. 
But this festival looks more like a fashion show, for the clothes, Kate Moss goes there, etc.
In 1970 (before the festival) the Italian band Dik Dik dedicated a song, L'isola di Wight,
gioventù (youth) and blue rhyming also in Italian. 
It's also the name of their club-restaurant in Milan

Alan: Liam was asked to be in Upside Down

About the previous post (Liam saying Upside Down sucks because they didn't invite him, he's jealous :), here's the reply Alan told me today:
"he did get asked by Danny to his management twice and he didn't want to be in it, Danny was told. To be fair, nobody thought the film was going to do anything, so when I met him the last time I bumped into him around Wembley shows with Oasis, he asked about it, it had already been turned down by his management and I said its just some documentary thing. Nobody thought it was going to get this much attention, it kind of shocked me and people like Bobby etc. I know Danny asked a couple of times formally and Liam didn't want to do it. You can only ask and everybody was cool with that as we all expected it to be an art house release it blew up".

"Oasis - это бизнес, а в Beady Eye всё по-настоящему" + Liam: Upside Down sucks

MOSCOW - Another automatic translation from Russian language, see if you can understand. 

On the eve of the Moscow concert Beady Eye Sounds talked with Andy Bell and Liam Gallagher. The latter, though in every way trying to disown past Oasis - and, physically (just before the interview in the press flashed a message saying that Liam refused to stay at the hotel to discover that there dwelt his elder brother) - from questions about the former group does not go away became, and finally promised udelat Noel on all counts.

Zvuki.ru : You have chosen Steve Lillywhite as a producer, because he worked with The La's - or were they on other reasons?
Andy: Yes, the fact of his collaboration with The La's played a role, but in fact it is he found us first - we have not even started to search for a producer, as he showed up at our door. Well, we decided that it is unlikely to be able to find someone better than him in the short term, but we did not want to delay album release on the back burner for such reasons. And we do not make a mistake with the choice.

Z: Well, any difficulties with the record been?
Liam: This is the first in my memory album, record that we have no difficulty. Everything went like clockwork, man, I have not experienced such pleasure from what I have to hang around in a stuffy studio. We have never had a situation where I'm stuck for months, being in Oasis: "damn song, how did it written" - and all the weeks go round and round this song until exhaustion. With "Different Gear, Still Speeding" everything went without a hitch.
A: The only thing that marred our work - is the fact that England never took the World Cup. (Laughs). We made it our goal to record a "live in the studio - so everything went very quickly. We do not have to puzzle over all sorts of specific studio chips: Why, if our goal - is to show what we are able to live?

Z: You started a new group from scratch, this is your recollection of how you did it before in the Oasis or a completely new experience that does not intersect with the fact that it was before?
L: And then, and another man ... (Begins to hum, it interrupts Andy).
A: It gives the already-forgotten feeling of novelty, the feeling that everything is still ahead. Now we can again easily play small clubs, to be mobile, not under pressure from no quarter - so it is first and foremost, freedom of action, which we have been looking for. And, when you have no more of this burden is annoying you hit, you can safely play the whole album and no one would require to perform what you would have been better would have long ago buried.

Z: Do you think that Beady Eye ways to gain entirely new audience? Or does it capture the part of fans of Oasis, who are ready for change?
L: Uh-uh, of course, new - I can see how our gigs coming guys 16-18 years old!

Z: Liam Q - in one interview you said that Oasis were the history of pop music, but the Beady Eye, on the contrary, pure rock and roll. Could you explain the difference?
L: Yeah, I said this - but I did not mean the music, man. I talked about the group's image, about its roots - and then everything really well. Just ... uh-uh ... in short, Oasis is * banaya shit that we already all over the ball * and Beady Eye - is what puts us all how to rock and roll, right? Oasis - it's a business, that's what I wanted to say, a Beady Eye at all really ..

Z: What do you think about the new documentary about Creation Records (the label, producing Oasis until the 2000's - approx. Sounds)?
L: It sucks. I did not really watch it, really. But they didn't even invite me to participate - and that there may be, then? They will ask the office cleaners Creation? Funny! No one advise. All these shitty "stars of rock 'n' Roll" from the 90s? You kidding? Think they are anything remember? Yes, at least I can not remember how crap we are Baha'is then, much of this to come to something - and I will not complain, my memory has always been strong. And these guys ... They passed!

Z: The "Different Gear ..." you can find a cover of a little-known group of World of Twist - this is some of your friends?
A: Yes, Liam saw them a few times, and I did was all on the short leg. They were not very lucky: only knew about them in Manchester and only in the early 90s - and even then, special popularity in the city they have won and broke up after the first album. But the singles they have been great, so we decided, why not remind everyone about this? Besides, once I went with them on tour, so I did not have to learn this game again (laughs)

Z: Why did you decide to name your label Beady Eye Recordings? Once it does so quite simply ...
L: But the sounds!
A: Yes, we had several options but we decided on this because we think it sounds so cool. This is almost the same as the Rolling Stones Records! By the way, the question of those who influenced us apart from The La's - this, of course, Rolling Stones.
L: I would add here The Kinks, Small Faces, and ... well, The Beatles, too, of course. I think that no I did not write, I'm still going to think about what I'd do would be Lennon in my place, and what would be Jagger - is a daily check, you know, man? I do not want to say that we want to clone their songs, but damn, this is the greatest of all time, what's wrong is to learn something from them?

Z: I noticed on your official forum, in that section, where users communicate with each other on the loose threads, there is a topic about the top 10 albums of all time. So, there are hundreds of these isotopes, but there are practically no albums from the last ten years (do you remember, I think the same :) - Marco)
Do you think this is really a problem of contemporary music, or all of those who listen to it?
A: (bitterly) Well, you have a list that would be solid albums of 2000s?
Z: Well, maybe not all, of course, but noticeable part - why not?
A: Well, I also like some modern plate - that's Tame Impala recorded a great album, but if I thought, who would be included in a list of the best albums of all time record, I do not remember remember about them. Just because there's an entirely different magnitude scale. Well, besides, still a fairly subjective - we love music 60's and 70's, because we grew up on it. Music of the 80 connected us with some important events of his youth, and the farther away, the less we were interested in someone else's music and the more we are engaged in their own. So, I think that many of our fans, too, have become hostages of the music of his youth, but I do not see anything wrong with that.
L: Oh, just a sincere, honest music, that's all! But all these attempts to come up with something new from scratch ... bullshit, I do not want to talk about it!

Z: And how do you taste your countrymen? The fact that playing at home and on the streets?
A: I ​​like it. I never bothered what sounds at a cafe or shops in England - we can vilify any number of our compatriots, but when you go abroad, and that's when you understand why people have come up with earplugs. We are here there are no problems, everywhere is nice music.

Z: You arrive for the first time in Moscow, but until then here would be your brother Noel. He did not tell about the city?
L: Yes, he is hell ahead of me, but you forget about it when we get to you. I always regret that we got to Russia as part of Oasis, in the golden years - but that now can you do need to move on. I tell you what: you will have half an hour fucking time, so relax - Beady Eye will give a light Noel. I promise.

AC Milan identikit: Gareth Bale

MILAN - Sherlock Holmes! Maybe it's a joke to entertain us, but there are too many details: today, speaking to AC Milan Channel, the manager Max Allegri gave the "identikit" of the player we are already trying to buy (he spoke about a negotiation already started)
- 183cm tall
- strong figure
- thick hair :)
- left-wing (and we are searching for this) but not communist LOL
- good feet, or better: excellent
- European passport
- then he also said Hamsik (183cm) is not first on the list (and I don't think Hamsik has a strong figure, he looks like a kid)
And some days ago Galliani said he's a player from a good European club (foreign) and when asked about Bale, he said "it can be" and, not for a case, the other day he was in London...........
It's clearly Gareth Bale from Tottenham. If AC Milan want to compete with that incredible team that is Barcelona today, we must buy this kind of players.
Besides, Tottenham is not playing the Champions League next year, Bale would like to play it.
Bale renewed his contract only 2 months ago until 2015, but maybe because Tottenham of course wanted to have a lot of money when selling him, as he worths so much.

Forse era una battuta per depistarci, ma ci sono troppi dettagli. L'identikit della mezzala sinistra promessa da Adriano Galliani è il seguente: "Capelli folti, altezza medio-alta, 1,83. Fisico robusto. Piedi buoni, anzi ottimi. Passaporto comunitario". A rivelarlo ai microfoni di Milan Channel è il tecnico rossonero Massimiliano Allegri. "Stare vicino a Galliani durante una trattativa - ha proseguito Allegri - mi ha fatto imparare molto. Ha confermato il dirigente che è. È stato proprio lui a chiedermi di partecipare a questa situazione, per me è stato qualcosa di bello". Parlando di nomi mercato, Ganso "fa il trequartista - ha spiegato Allegri - bisogna però allenarlo e conoscere la sua struttura e il suo passo" [scartato...], mentre Hamsik "ha un gran margine di miglioramento ma non è il primo della lista" [scartato].
C'è da aggiungere che Galliani qualche giorno fa ha detto che è un giocatore di un club straniero europeo, quindi Hamsik scartato ancora di più (nonostante sia alto 183 :), ma non mi sembra che abbia un fisico robusto, sembra un ragazzino). Quando gli hanno fatto il nome di Bale, lui ha detto "Bale può essere" e l'altro giorno è andato proprio a Londra... E Bale vuole giocare la Champions League, il Tottenham non ce l'ha quest'anno.
E' chiaramente Bale. Oppure Balle :)
Bale ha rinnovato il contratto solo due mesi fa fino al 2015 ma forse perchè il Tottenham ovviamente vuole molti soldi per venderlo, visto quello che vale (sarà almeno 30 milioni, il Tottenham dice 60... anche Ibra costava tanto, ma Galliani è l'Imperatore del mercato...).
Se vogliamo vincere la Champions e battere un Barcellona com'è adesso, contando che non abbiamo 15 errori arbitrali a favore come l'Inter in Champions, bisogna prendere giocatori così.

JELLING - And here's a couple of pics&videos also from the festival in Denmark. 
It seems the old Liam of the '90s is back. But then he wasn't impressed by the crowd, he said joking that it seemed a "sausage festival, with 3 people", lol

free love for everyone... the last thing Liam stole was a mountain bike


MILAN - As I knew, communists won the election for the mayor of Milan: free tickets for everyone, free beer for everyone, FREE LOVE LOL, etc., and their promises. Yes, good! Donkeys flying. I would like all of that but I'm not a kid anymore with people kidding me. Now, seriously, first problem: there's the underground metro line 4 to build (line 5 is under construction) before the Expo 2015. Where are they gonna get the money from? taxing people? The thieves (typically Inter Milan left-wing as their president and wife) are back.
See, I was writing about cycling and then as usual there's a news. This is a really communist thing Liam did when he was a kid. Of course now he would never do it.
When communists tell me the Gallaghers are working class, I laugh and make them read all the things Oasis said: they have that origin, but things change, they're not really working class at all. Besides, not all of the people of the working class are communists. There's someone teaching them in schools here, that communist = poor, fascist = rich. As they're so good in teaching, I would like them to explain me why I've always known rich communists and poor fascists.

The singer made his name in rock band Oasis alongside his brother Noel Gallagher, and is promoting his new group Beady Eye. He has revealed a naughty moment from his past, when he decided to help himself to someone else’s property.
"Last time I stole was when I was a kid, man," Liam told Q Magazine. "A mountain bike. I was walking home and I thought, ‘Fuck this, I’m knackered, there’s a bike there.’ It wasn’t locked up. It was outside some fucking shop. I thought, ‘I’ll have a go of that.’ Took it home and sold it, 50 quid." [ahahaha legend]
Now a father himself, Liam would never condone such behaviour. He has one child with wife Nicole Appleton and two kids from other relationships and says being a dad has changed him. When he was a young man his only thought was for himself, but now his loved ones and foremost in his mind at all times.
"I’d go and get fucking trolleyed," he revealed, when asked what he’d do if the world was ending. "But you don't want to be doing that when you’ve got kids, do you? You’d have to just go and grab your kids and you missus and have a fucking super-cuddle."

new: demo version of I'm outta time...

Alura, biglietti gratis, fiorellini omaggio nei vostri cannoni, e promesse varie. Gli asini che volano. Il nuovo sindaco Pisapia ha ripetuto che hanno "liberato Milano"... liberato?! ma da cosa? dal Popolo della Libertà? dal nazifascismo? dal dittatore Berlusconi?
Ora, quando passa la sbornia elettorale (se passa), ta-dam! Primo problema: c'è la linea 4 della metropolitana da costruire per l'Expo 2015. E i danè dove li vanno a prendere? Li chiedono allo zio Silvio? Non andranno mica a tassare la gente daiiii?
E come pensano di risolvere il grande problema della disoccupazione giovanile, facendo accedere ai concorsi persino gli stranieri senza residenza? (è scritto nel loro fantastico programma)
Il nuovo sindaco sinistro di Napoli ha detto "Milano e Napoli unite e non più nel malaffare"... oibò, per esempio? Vogliamo fare un excursus storico sull'elenco di malaffari sinistri (lo dice già il nome), tra appartamentopoli e via dicendo, proprio detto da Napoli dove con la sinistra la città è naufragata (ed è sata ostaggio di "certe" persone) nella spazzatura? Invotabili.
La checca isterica Vendola (che cazzo c'entra con Milano?) si è messo/messa a urlare in Duomo come un invasato in preda a una crisi epilettica (loro sono quelli che non urlano), per i "poveri musulmani" e i "fratelli rom", robe dell'altro mondo. Fratello rom sarà fratello tuo. Se l'avesse fatto ieri, nessuno avrebbe votato Pisapia.
PRODI, ripeto: il Mortadella (il disastro che si era ritirato, un po' come tutti quelli, Veltroni doveva andare a salvare l'Africa, ecc. però poi son tutti lì appena si libera una poltrona), Prodi si è messo al lavoro per il nuovo governo. Bersani festeggia in piazza a Roma con champagne, come se qualcuno avesse votato per lui... Tra l'altro i due grandi vincitori di oggi, Pisapia di Rifondazione Comunista e De Magistris dell'Italia dei Valori, non sono chiaramente del suo partito "PD".
Questi non hanno ancora capito, finchè non ci sbattono la testa contro mille volte, che il socialismo (perchè se lo chiami comunismo si offendono, come mai?) è un sistema politico fallito, anche vincendo delle elezioni, non riusciranno a governare, è un accozzaglia di gente (con il record di facce da sfigati) che vuole essere "tutta uguale" ma che in realtà poi alcuni vogliono essere "un po' più uguali degli altri"... La fattoria degli animali, George Orwell.

A proposito, ma i programmi delle televisioni dittatoriali di Berlusconi, non erano tutte a suo favore? Come mai vedo solo programmi contro? Addirittura il programma italiano più visto, Striscia la notizia, milionate di spettatori ogni giorno, con simboli della pace, bandiere politicizzate della pace, conduttori esplicitamente anti-Berlusconi. Queste trasmissioni influenzano pesantemente l'ascoltatore ignorante-medio italiano.

Liam enjoys cinema naps and buses, not autographs

LONDON - Liam Gallagher is producing a film, but thinks cinemas are boring. This is an old news we gave time ago, don't know why also the non-Oasis-websites are writing about it now, maybe to criticize him producing a movie.
Liam has revealed he often takes his children to the cinema so he can have a nap while they watch the movie, he falls asleep (me too).
The Beady Eye frontman isn't a fan of watching movies but takes the opportunity to have a rest whenever he takes his sons Lennon, 11, and nine-year-old Gene, to see a film.
He said: "I've fallen asleep in many cinemas. Last time was one of the kids' ones we went to. There was one called 'Wall-E' or sommat. About four hours fucking long. It's like they fucking gas you. I'm just there dribbling. I normally put the kids right in at the wall, get me head down, put my feet up and then that's it."
Liam - who is also father to 13-year-old Molly, his daughter with Lisa Moorish (the "fucking woman", lol) who he has no contact with - also admitted he enjoys using public transport, though it has been a long time since he and wife Nicole Appleton took a bus.
He explained to Q magazine: "Me, Liam Howlett, Natalie (Appleton) and Nicole were going to the pub, we were half cut and we just thought, 'Oh fuck it, we'll jump on a bus.' I had a good time actually. I could've stayed on it forever. It's fucking great. I don't know what everyone's moaning about."

Liam insists he’s never asked for an autograph before because he doesn’t see their sentimental value (I think the same, I prefer photos and videos. I know that a cd with an autograph on it might worth more, but I don't have to sell them, and you need a "certificate of autenticity", so one usually can't be sure the autograph is original).
The outspoken star says however, that he doesn’t mind writing them for his fans if it makes them happy.
“Never done it [asked for one]. It’s a waste of time. I mean, I understand people doing it and that. But you end up losing it. A piece of shitty paper. I don’t want someone’s signature on a fucking cigarette box,” he explained. “I don’t mind giving them. Takes two seconds, man. If it makes their day and that.”

less doping and more money for cycling

MILAN - Today it's about sports :). I never write about cycling, because I don't like it anymore. But Liam was riding a bike lately, so I have to :).
I used to love this sport around 1994 and those years (when Oasis came out), it was even my favourite sport, even more than football and Formula 1 in that period, there were great athletes as Bugno, Pantani, Indurain, Chiappucci, etc. later Armstrong an example for everyone. And this sport of course is very appreciated in the Alps mountains where I have some origins of my family (it's like Ireland for the Gallaghers), my father is a big fan.
But since cycling started to be more about doping, using forbidden things, it's difficult to feel excited for some athlete, knowing that many of them will be disqualified after some time. The legendary Marco Pantani even died a few years ago, because of drugs. In fact, even today's winner of the "Giro d'Italia", Italian tour, ending as usual in Milan after some hard weeks, the Spanish Contador has some problems with doping. Today was a bit more special 'cause it ended in the cathedral square, I had never seen this (usually it was in a park near there).
Anyway, it's a dangerous sport, in fact some days ago another one even died because he fell.
I think these athletes should be paid much more, 'cause their efforts are huge, while footballers have less risks but are paid so much more. And it's not always their fault when they use forbidden things. When I went to Milanello training centre for the first time, I was impressed for the place but I saw that footballers life is so easy, coming there with a big car, playing for a very short time, then going away.
When I was a kid there were some girls who liked cycling, but boys fooled me around 'cause it's supposed to be a boring sport, for old people, lol. I remember in March '94 (Oasis first single, Supersonic, was out in April, and I was planning a travel to England, by plane as in that video :), we were in Madrid in a hotel, and life in Spain is during the night only, so we were tired: we were all together in a room and I decided (big idea!) to watch on tv "la Vuelta de España" lol, the Spanish tour. Of course everybody fell asleep (as Liam at cinemas, lol). Not me, I was even fighting against a pigeon 'cause it came inside the room and I was trying to defend my friends sleeping. Maybe the pigeon wanted to see the Vuelta and didn't want to leave me alone, lol. A friend of mine saw me and if we think about that, we're still laughing :). He goes: Mark what the fuck are you doing?! lol

c'è chi ha 7 Coppe Italia e chi 7 Champions... Inter the Beagle Boys

ROMA - Photo: last summer in Montecarlo, Atletico Madrid fans (beating Inter Milan in the European SuperCup) were supporting AC Milan, lol. And showing a classic "Inter shit", the team owned by a rich left-wing oil tycoon and his wife in politics.
Our deepest appreciation to Atletico fans ^_^, 'cause it was unexpected.
In exchange, of course we are against Real Madrid, always preferring Barcelona.
Tonight Inter won the Italian Cup in Rome, vs Palermo who deserved more (of course Inter had the benefit of some usual strange referee decisions), but it's a cup worthing less than the FA Cup in England.
Just a detail: they won 7 useless Italian cups in their history, we won 7 Champions Leagues... difference!
This summer (6 August) in CHINA, it's Milan derby for the Italian SuperCup: not so important, but it is 'cause it's a derby.
Having seen Inter business in communist China in the recent years, even putting their sponsor on the shirts in Chinese language (Pirelli, the Formula 1 tyres from Milan), we can easily think there will be something strange in that game. As usual, it's all about money. Having seen what happened in the past (as: winning the Champions League with 15 referee "mistakes" and all about that, Calciopoli scandal where recenty it came out that Inter did the same things of Juventus thieves relegated in Serie B, plus controlling phone calls thanks to Telecom managed by Tronchetti Provera at those times, using irregular passports, etc. but no punishment at all), we can now think of anything.
Today, Pirelli president Tronchetti Provera, Inter connected and big fan, was even in Montecarlo in that strange race. Monaco the football team even got relegated.
In these days, even the attitude of Palermo president was really strange: usually he's very aggressive and always believes in a win. Now resigned, as he felt to lose. Maybe they have some agreement for transfers of players... or maybe resigned 'cause he knows the thieves Inter are.
In fact, at the end of the game, he exploded in anger as usual, saying that Inter are the Beagle Boys (la Banda Bassotti in the Italian version).

Monaco buffoons circus, i metalmeccanici di Montecarlo: gara o sfilata d'auto d'epoca?

MONTECARLO - Photo: the beautiful Charlotte Casiraghi wearing McLaren colours :) (on her dress there was even a big M :), and the future wife of Prince Albert was even embracing warmly Button 'cause he deserved to win. Too warmly lol, I noticed how the blonde looked at him, lol!
Great race, very exciting, if it wasn't for the decisions: race stopped at the end when Button was the fastest one and could win, as he was 1st before; drive-through for Hamilton because of Massa that idiot; safety car 2 times slowing the race on key-moments for McLaren... The cars could change the tyres (so it was a big advantage for Vettel who was in great difficulty, finishing his tyres) and the race, just for a few laps, started again behind the safety car! Absurd.
And what about Alonso avoiding a chicane in a difficult moment? No penalties?! What if was Hamilton doing that? Surely a scandal. And Massa too, should have a penalty, he didn't give space as Hamilton did with Schumacher.
Unlucky but brave weekend for "3 ring circus" Hamilton, could have been in pole position without Perez accident on Saturday. When Lewis undertook Schumacher then he made a gesture as to say, go away you old geezer :). And when you find that slow guy called Massa on Ferrari, it's always a mess. And his accident even caused problems to Button, as the safety car had to slow the race. As a reward to McLaren, Hamilton got a drive-through. It was all against him (he even got a 20 seconds penalty, incredible), he couldn't do anything, it seems they don't want cars overtaking. It looks like a fashion parade with old cars, not a competiton. Look, dear Fia, it's not so good to close the championship before time... Ridiculous!

Solita telecronaca allucinante di Gianfranco Mazzoni (la gente lo detesta e lui resiste al suo posto per anni, mistero), che ci ricorda che "non sa dirlo con precisione" (magari fosse solo impreciso, questi non sanno neanche parlare), bravo sei proprio nello sport della precisione, cambialo. Si lamentano di Falco che fa le invasioni ma c'è gente che non sa fare il proprio "lavoro", chiamiamolo lavoro. Poi la sua solita fase di gufaggio, "non ci sono stati ritiri", passa solo qualche minuto e Massa va a sbattere (guarda caso sempre lui, deve rimanere alla Ferrari a vita), e Schumi si ritira. "Rientrata la safety car"... no. Tutto il coro di telecronisti imbecilli: "il prossimo da doppiare sarà nientemeno che Hamilton!" ...no. Era una Virgin. C'è una bella differenza. Ovviamente poi non rettificano, non ammettendo le cazzate che sparano.
Essendo il Gp di Monaco non poteva risparmiarci le storielle su Anthony Noguess... Ma pensa che la gente che guarda la Formula 1 cambia ogni volta? Dai siamo sempre gli stessi, abbiamo capito. Se c'è gente nuova, lo nomini e basta, se lo vanno a cercare. Ma il Mazzoni, interista e di sinistra, non sa mai cosa dire e si è sempre perso snocciolando gossip inutili ed elogi a quell'incompetente (come lui) ministra sinistra dello Sport che odia il calcio, la Melandri (la moralista che facava le feste Bunga-Bunga in Africa, non ammettendole poi, nonostante le foto). Forse il Mazzoni elogiandola davanti a milion di persone, sperava che gliela desse.

Is it any wonder why princes and kings are clowns that caper in their sawdust rings...
Io avrei fatto una doccia di champagne (tanto loro ci nuotano nello champagne) ai principini del pisello di Montecarlo, uno di quelli sta con la contessina comunista Beatrice Borromeo (simpatica come un martello sulle cosiddette o una falce per un prato), quella che "sposerò un povero metalmeccanico", ma per sua sfortuna ha trovato solo un metalmeccanico di Montecarlo.
Te lo do io lo champagne, questa gente andrebbe messa a pane e acqua. PANE e ACQUA. Fin troppo.

A fine gara il genio di Massa e l'assurdo Domenicali sono andati a fare i piangina (da uno imparziale: il presidente Todt, ex Ferrari), chiedendo addirittura altre sanzioni contro Hamilton! Pazzesco. A dir poco patetiche le dichiarazioni di Massa, come al solito, un "pilota"-autista ormai alla frutta, schizofrenico. I sorpassi su Schumacher e Maldonado sono la fotocopia, Hamilton ha lasciato spazio, Massa invece no. Non si capisce se i commissari assistano a una GARA di Formula 1 oppure a una sfilata di auto d'epoca che non si devono neanche sfiorare. Massa e Alonso che taglia la chicane in un momento cruciale, neanche nominati, l'avesse fatto Hamilton sarebbe stato uno scandalo. Vettel ha già quasi ammazzato il campionato, e ci si mettono pure i commissari a chiuderlo del tutto, non vedo che interesse abbia la Federazione in questo. Gara che meritava di vincere ampiamente Button e decisioni assurde solo contro Hamilton che come sempre lotta come un leone. Gli unici due veri piloti in mezzo a un circo di pagliacci.

Barcelona fucking leathering Scum United. Italian Falco putting AC Milan scarf on Messi's neck

LONDON - Liam Gallagher was right. Breaking news, Barcelona winning 3-1 vs Manchester United at Wembley and going to win their 4th Champions League. Still a long way to reach AC Milan.
Dedicated to Mourinho...
Hero of the night: the Italian "Superman" Falco (always going on the pitch during the games), putting an AC Milan scarf on Messi's neck.
Messi now close to a transfer :)
Of course many moralistic Italians always criticizing this innocent gesture of freedom, oh what the fuck is he doing, go to work, etc.
"Even Man City", the team called shit, defeated Man Utd last month on the same pitch, so Barcelona couldn't do worse.
I loved Ferguson's face... he was laughing before the game, he wanted to be "history"... what? How can be history a team winning 7 international trophies in their whole history when AC Milan won 18? hehehe They won 1 Champions League in the last decade, AC won 2, in 4 years, and almost winning another one if they didn't gave it as gift to Liverpool, from 3-0 to 3-3.
Great performance by Messi (a goal, superb skills and all), and the usual way of playing by Barcelona, with a lot of passing, United almost never touching a ball. Chicharito Hernandez was rubbish.
Scum United goal was in offside, typical (Giggs passing to Rooney). There were 2 probable penalties not given, one to Barça, one to Utd.

Atlanta Dreams stars visit Manchester City centre

MANCHESTER - Some space to girls and other sports. Stars from the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) visited the brand new Manchester Tennis and Football Centre at SportCity on 26 May.
The players from the Atlanta Dream watched girls from Wright Robinson Sports College, Gorton, train with coaches from Manchester City FC’s community scheme City in the Community and players from Manchester City Ladies (Ellena Turner, Danni Lea, Danni Brown, Alice Hey, Rachel Hindle, Becky Grocott).
The new facilities, which have been developed through a partnership between Manchester City FC, Manchester City Council and Manchester Sport and Leisure Trust have seen the creation of seven brand new sports facilities, including three 3G synthetic turf 5 –a- side football pitches and four new tennis courts.
The Manchester Tennis and Football centre was officially launched in April 2011 by MCFC stars Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta and Nigel De Jong.
At the Centre, CITC are delivering a range of football activities targeting local schools and the community, including after school football sessions for both boys and girls, coaching sessions for disabled young people as well as educational and health programmes.
The new pitches are also available for the local community to book and use throughout the week, in evenings and on the weekend.
The Atlanta Dream are playing the Standard Life Great Britain National Women’s Team at the MEN Arena as part of WNBA Live – Manchester 2011 on May 29th marking the first time a WNBA team has played in Europe.
Fans purchasing tickets for the WNBA event on May 29 will receive the first opportunity to buy tickets for the Men’s USA Basketball v GB game taking place at MEN Arena next year.

Liam: Oasis is in my veins

LONDON - As when I say: even grandmothers know Oasis. Unfortunately I don't have any granparent left.
In that recent pic Liam had grey hair... no dye heheh...
Nothing new in this interview.
The man with the fringe talks to Hannah Nathanson about competing with his brother and having his first drink in five month.
How did you celebrate Man City winning the FA Cup?
Oh, man, that was good. I hadn't had a drink for five months and I had a little drink that day and then went back to celebrate at my house. We didn't go mad or anything but I'm still buzzing. It was a long time coming.
Has Noel listened to your new band?
I'm sure he's had a listen. I don't think he's got Beady Eye on his iPod and he probably doesn't listen to it daily, but he's a music lover and Different Gear, Still Speeding is a top-notch album.
Will you listen to his new solo album?
Definitely. I want to see if it's as good as the ones I sang on.
Do you feel pressure to escape the Oasis legacy?
No, I'll always be Oasis, it's in my veins. I'm never going to get away from it and I don't want to get away but I'm not doing it any more. You'd go mad if you had to explain yourself every time someone said, 'Are you from Oasis?' It's easier just to say, 'Yeah, that's me.' I like the same music now that I liked then. I've no reason to escape from it because I'm very proud of it.
Why did you start a fashion label?
I just like clothes, I always have. I wouldn't call myself a fashion designer, though. When I first saw our shop in Carnaby Street I thought, 'This is fucking cool, this will do.' There's a lot of history there, it's where The Stones and The Who bought their clothes.
OK, but how much do you actually do?
I have my little take on it every now and again but there's a big team around me. I put my ideas across and then they're... expanded.
Who has the final say on an item of clothing?
I try it on and if it makes me feel good and gives me a kick then it goes in and if it doesn't, it goes in the bin. I go through everything with a fine-tooth comb.
Who would you choose as a brand ambassador?
There's no one better than me. I wouldn't mind getting a bit of Pretty Green on the Queen, though. She's still got a spring in her step.
Why the name Pretty Green?
It's an old Jam song. I wouldn't have called it Liam Gallagher. We tried that in the 1990s with a shoe collection but it's just fucking stupid.
Do the other members of Beady Eye wear it?
There's no gun to their head forcing them to, but they seem to like it, which is good.

Italian tour, noisy neighbours


MILAN - Tonight Beady Eye in Verona, Italy.
I explain you briefly what's going on, I hope you can understand, 'cause sometimes I post in Italian language, it's always something about politics-football-music.
There's a lack of news as in the summer, so today is about politics, I know you don't like it, lol.
You know I don't like him, the man speaking about politics in a so different way from Noel, and dressing as a fat woman lol, but I have to give all the news (and this is about our Hollywood club) and I think everybody should have their space, also those who think different from us. But I know that communists don't do this, they speak about tolerance and are the first ones to be intolerant, this is what I see.
By the way, why do I find so many Irish racists? Paul, City fan, is almost Irish, probably not racist, but I find many intolerant people from Ireland. Well, the Gallaghers are half Irish, and they've always been quite intolerant against everything.
In East Europe where I have contacts with many beautiful girls ^_^, even the communist symbol is forbidden, it's an offence, 'cause they've known communism (that is, 100 million dead people in the world, even much more than nazifascism).
While in Italy they play to be communist "rebels" (with rich parents, also nobles, so I laugh when I see Oasis against the royals), and they even say laughable things as "I will marry a poor worker"...oh then they only find the prince of Montecarlo, how unlucky.
We are the only country in the world where the communist symbol is even inside the symbol of many political parties... absurd. Even though the Berlin Wall fell 22 years ago.
This is because we had Mussolini 70 and more years ago (probably the only period in Italian modern times when things were quite working), but their feeling against him is still strong and they even think Berlusconi is Mussolini, and they blame him for everything, even the ozone hole (about this there should be Noel here with his sentences against the environ-mental-ist Greens). In England there's a similar feeling against nazifascism but the English have a bigger sense of nation. This is probably because Italy is a very young country, 150 years this year. We were big but only centuries ago during Romans times, while in modern times Italy is a very divided country, inside. The regionalism is very strong, as in England.
Communists say that Berlusconi supporters idolize him, and they're right, in fact I think he's God, lol.
No, I just think he's misunderstood (or they like to misunderstand).
But communists, blaming him for everything, and having him always on their minds, the so called "anti-berlusconismo", they spend all their time thinking about him, and they are the first ones idolizing him, in a negative way for themselves.
We are still discussing as fascists vs communists, not a good way to grow. Communists even thought Obama was a communist as them. They didn't even understand Berlusconi's joke about him, saying that he's "tanned", he meant that the colour of the skin is not important. Oh racist! scandal! This is a very moralistic country and they always want some scandal to discuss, we are similar to English tabloids, we paparazzi, lol. The 'funny' thing is that the people criticizing are those who usually behave much worse.
Can you imagine what happened with Berlusconi and his young lovers. One thing I don't like is when foreign tabloids judge our news, I always see they don't know anything.
Oh mamma mia, I think Italians argue so easily between them, the "noisy neighbours" lol as Man Utd Ferguson called Manchester City fans. I should marry a foreign girl, lol.
There's a positive part in not growing, Oasis "stay young" :) - Peter Pan, this is something in our "spirit", you know.
Appropriate period for politics, 'cause from Monday, Milan will probably have a new mayor (it was a conservative woman), now for the first time a communist one, and we think it's gonna be a disaster. Not really the right city for one like that. If there wasn't, that means something. And Milan has been carrying on the Italian economy for so many years. Without Milan and the North... Italy would surely be a Third World country, in fact we are close to Africa.
So I should stop promoting Milan, close all the webs, not going anywhere, and boycott my own city. I'm not gonna do that, the mayor is gonna be a disaster with his own hands. You might think: oh a communist, maybe he's a poor peasant, a working class hero... no, a lawyer. Who had some problems with law.
In these days in Italy everybody is speaking about this election. The funny thing is that many are not voting 'cause they don't live in Milan, and in the first turn we were about 650,000 people voting (Milan city is about 1.5 million inhabitants, plus millions all around it), while Italy is about 60 millions. But everybody think it's so important because Milan is the economic capital. They even think that when this mayor wins, even the Italian government could change, but it's not going to happen, Berlusconi party (called "People of Freedom") is still the first one. I don't think he's Mussolini, on the contrary there's too much freedom... there should be much less.
Recently there's a big discussion going on between a sort of music guru (I met him recently for a band) organizing events for young bands, concerts dedicated to John Lennon (even a park), "pacifist gigs", etc., but he's supporting the conservative woman as mayor, so the young communists got angry with him, they even thought he's "one of them". They always want their enemy to be intolerant, racist, etc., I think they should look at themselves.

A. Bell and M. Kane interviews: making honest music as Oasis

NEW YORK CITY - Part 2 of the interview with Andy Bell here

Andy Bell has been at the epicenter of British rock music since the late 1980s, when his band Ride were at the forefront of the shoegaze scene. From there, he did time with Britpoppers Hurricane #1 and Gay Dad before landing on the mothership of British rock with Oasis. With Noel Gallagher and company, Bell set down the guitar for the first time and quickly learned the bass. In the aftermath of Oasis’ 2009 breakup, Bell remained with bandmates Liam Gallagher, guitarist Gem Archer and drummer Chris Sharrock to form a new group, Beady Eye. The band released their first album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, in February to positive reviews, only bolstered by the group’s subsequent live performances.
When Beady Eye formed, the press and fans alike wondered if the former Oasis band members could make a go of it without their leader. But the foursome quickly proved the naysayers wrong with a killer debut album. The group have spent the better part of 2011 touring the world and proving without a doubt that, even without Noel, they’re still rock ‘n’ roll stars.
For Andy, the band has given him the opportunity to return to his original instrument of guitar after a decade playing bass with Oasis.
Bell sat down at the Gibson NYC Showroom to talk about his beloved Trini Lopez, the amazing run of drummers in his career, his years in Oasis, plans for Beady Eye’s next album and his mystical 13-year-old mentor.

A girl like you, Edwyn Collins cover (Iggy Pop tribute) by Kane

And here's another short interview to Miles Kane about Oasis.

What do you think your album has brought to the UK chart which may have been lacking before?

I think my album is bringing the rock and roll thing back to UK music. Like Oasis - I mean, I'm not comparing myself to them - but I'm bringing that kind of music back into 2011. It's not an X-Factor type of thing; it's solo and quite ballsy. I suppose it's got swagger, but I don't mean that in an arrogant way. It's good to still be rewarded for making that kind of honest music.

You're a big Oasis fan and are friendly with Liam and Noel. What did it mean to you to support Beady Eye on tour?

It meant so much that they asked me. I love Liam, so to be at Beady Eye's first gigs was exciting and one of the best tours I've done. Sometimes on support you feel a bit like there's no point if people didn't come to see you specifically, but with the Beady Eye tour it was perfect. We gained a lot, and people were getting there early just to see us. Travelling with my band is great too as I've known them all for a long time.

Led Zeppelin son Jason Bonham: Beady Eye are cool

LOS ANGELES - Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience, live at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, May 27th, while Beady Eye are in Italy.
The music of Led Zeppelin is classic, perpetually cool and heavy, defying timestamp. In Through the Out Door, which was released in 1979, was the last studio album recorded before Zep disbanded, due to the death of drummer John Bonham.
While there have been good imitators and scores of Led Zeppelin covers played, the closest taste we've had of the greatest rock and roll band of all time (my favourite, while Oasis were, let's say, Britpop) was when Jimmy Page, Robert Plant (legends loved by the Gallaghers), and John Paul Jones took the stage in 2007 with Jason Bonham at the drum kit.
And if anyone can fill John Bonham's Led boots it is, unequivocally, Jason, the Son of Bonzo.

You're playing "Moby Dick" in your set, of course.

B: Yes, very much so. And I do that with Dad, and it's just a very special thing to do each night. Something we didn't do together because we only had one drum kit in the house.

What songs can people expect to hear on this tour?

B: We kind of mix it up. We do some obscure (songs), but we do "Since I've Been Loving You," I love. "The Rain Song" (YES! - Marco, lol) we've been doing, which is just a huge, beautiful musical masterpiece which the guitarist does wonderfully well as well as the singer. The whole band has been playing really, really at the top of its game. Some of the songs we choose are tricky musical pieces, so you've got to be a competent musician to even attempt it. The last thing I want to do is pick a song that we couldn't really pull off. There's other songs in there, like, "You're Time is Gonna Come," which was never done by Zeppelin live from Led Zeppelin one. "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" is just a show stopper. That's the first time you get a standing ovation.

That must be extremely satisfying, to say the least.

B: Every night we throw in a different song, like, "In the Light" from Physical Graffiti. And that goes down hugely well. We did "Achilles Last Stand" on the first couple of nights as well. So we have a huge knowledge of all the songs, and that is the one thing that you have to have to be in the band. We didn't want to have to keep rehearsing. The soundchecks are useful for fine-tuning things. ["When the] Levee Breaks" is always a show stopper, especially with Dad playing the drums on it. He's the main drummer on that song.

A long time ago when I was reading the liner notes on Robert Plant's solo album, Principle of Moments, and saw your name. Did you record tracks for that?

B: I did all the demos for both Pictures at Eleven and Principle of Moments.

You must have been only 15 or 16 then. I saw the L.A. Forum show on that tour in 1983 and Phil Collins was drumming. How was it to be playing drums, making those two amazing records?

B: He used to pick me up from school and he'd say, "Can you help me finish up these new songs I've got?" Yeah, it was a lot of fun.

Robert Plant used to pick you up from school?

B: Yeah. It was my last year of school. "Okay, I've asked your mom. I just need you for a couple hours. Do you want to come and jam?"

It must be the most exhilarating thing in the world to get up onstage with Robert, Jimmy, and John Paul Jones, yeah?

B: Oh yeah. As I say--for me--it brings me closer to my father to play with my dad's bandmates. I always say if I can't play with them, then I'll play for my dad's audience. And that's another way of bringing me closer to him, too.

What are you listening to as far as up-and-comers and new music these days?

B: I bought the new Beady Eye, which is Oasis without Noel Gallagher. It's cool, actually. I kinda like it. I bought Adele's album. I'm getting old. (laughs) That's one of the newer things I bought the other day. And I bought the Beastie Boys new thing. So I'm still on the "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" kind of vibe.

Liam Gallagher, Лиам Галлахер «Это мы е...аный народ, мужик!»

MOSCOW - Today was Beady Eye 1st birthday, 25 May 2010 they announced their name with their (baby) site. Even if they often refer to Oasis last day as Beady Eye first day (photo, the morning after the split, 29 August 2009, I hve some pics). The end is the beginning is the end.
This photo always reminded me of the film Almost Famous, there's a similar scene: the airplane and the band taken from behind (here without Liam).
For the Zodiac fans, Oasis end was under Virgo sign, as Liam.
Beady Eye birth under Gemini sign, as Noel...
And today was also Paul Weller's birthday, on 29 it's Noel's, of course all Gemini as me and so many great musicians.

Here's an automatic translation from Russian language. Sounds funny, see if you can understand. It's from some weeks ago.

Liam Gallagher "This is what we are and. .. every nation, man!"
Come to Russia Beady Eye - a new group of Liam Gallagher of Oasis. Management of musicians, however, separately asked questions about Oasis Gallagher did not ask. Instead, the "Playbill" talked to him about the working class, football, Radiohead and aging.
- Here's your album called Different Gear, Still Speeding: Another program, the rate of the former. It's in the sense that you have a new group? Or do you mean, what has changed?
- Without a doubt. Another "transfer" - means, other circumstances. We definitely feel that this is another group that we have a new position.
- But it's something that most of your rivals on Britpop - the people of the Pulp, Damon Albarn - they have moved somewhere in terms of music. On this you can not say.Beady Eye - the same eggs, just in front.
- Well, Damon Albarn, then there was a need to get rid of Blur - it did not satisfy what they have going on there. We're quite happy to play that and play well: we all like something really, really. And the dick then you need to call themselves «Gold-something, burn CDs to electronics, to do something like fashion? We roast rock 'n' roll - these things.
- Is it possible you have never experienced the desire to build something very, very different? I was thinking that because you would have made a good rapper - vocal delivery to disposal.
- Yes, but ... No! No way I will not rap. Only in the shower!
- But you always had acted as a voice of the proletariat, the working class. A current proletarian youths are increasingly listening to just hip-hop, electronica and club stuff. Do not you think that you have lost touch with these people?
- It's not entirely true, brother. In my opinion, a lot of children ... a lot of the rich Maltsov enjoys rap - but perhaps it is my opinion that. In any case, still full of guys from working-class families, who love rock 'n' roll. We are quite in the spirit of the time, brother. And I certainly do not feel like fallen from the holder - I just did on the b ... dskom horse!
- And you yourself, then still ranked as the working class? Feel a bond with these guys?
- Yes, certainly. I do not think it has anything to do with how big you, man, house. Or how much money you spend on running shoes. I'm from the workaholic, but I do not scale of this language. I was born and raised in a family business - but I still did not apply even in those times when everything else is obviously belonged to this class itself. I never said something like: "Listen to us, we are of the workers!" Well, yes, we, b ... gb of workers - have passed, we go further.
- Still difficult to imagine how people Beady Eye fun in the pub with ordinary people.
- It is difficult to believe that we do so? We did so yesterday! We all shlyaemsya, Big Brother, many times it happened. Too many times! With people ... That is, we have .. any nation, man! And it's not about Buckingham Palace, if you are about it.
- That's just about it. You were one of the symbols of Cool Britannia second half of the nineties, the Labour Party actively supported. As you are a new government?
- Yes, I know nothing about politics. And I think many of these politicians do not understand it, too. So you do not need my opinion, I assure you.
- Okay.
- Do something you think? I've no idea, did not know ... But in general now, everything seems pretty shitty, right?
- How do you say!
- No, of course, when you're in the Beady Eye, everything is fine - well, and that ordinary people? No one else now, it seems, especially not money. But on the other a hand, not about the money because the whole thing?
- Well, on the other hand, your hometown, Manchester, in recent years, transformed.Someone from your great countryman, Morrissey seems to be saying that, say, Manchester has become so influential in the musical sense, because it was hell hole. Now that this has changed, you do not feel that the music was worse?
- Uh-uh ... Well, I'll no longer live there, man, you know.
- Yes, but this is your hometown.
- Here! This is what I wanted to say - it's my hometown. That is, I do not mind it all as a comment just because I do not live there anymore. And though I can not know exactly what is happening there, but! It can be assumed that there appears too many groups that are worthless - but the same can be said about all of England, is not it? However, there Manchester - it's not a hell hole. Who said there is, you say? Morrissey? Yes he did in Los Angeles!
- Well, maybe it's Peter Hook was, I'm not sure. A Manchester, maybe not a hole, but Manchester City is still losing.
- Loses?
- The Championship is something you will not win.
- We did not win the championship, but we take the cup in the finals and come out into the Champions League. (The interview took place before the club coped with both tasks.. - Ed.) In my opinion, this is called a "win."
- Do you still hate the fans of Manchester United as fiercely as before?
- I have no special affection for them, I know not, what about hate. To me they are more or less shit. (Pause.) I do not hate anyone.
- Really? Then this question. Radiohead recently released a letter stating that you applied for it to be their support band in 1994 - but they refused. What do you think about this story?
- Who was it again?
- Radiohead.
- It's about Oasis?!
- Well, yes.
- I never heard about this story, but it's e. .. n. .. any Dej. In 1994, we have already collected Knebworth. No, we never ask for Radiohead on tour.
- So after all you're still experiencing strong emotions at their expense? "E. .. any n. .. Dej? You're older, but still remained as before?
- Listen. Britpop - is generally ... (Raspalyaetsya.) If you ask me about that, if I have definite opinions about certain groups, then yes, it is - and it never will not go anywhere! They need to keep track of what I mean! Personally, I like to say that I think about other teams - and yes, there are a couple of crappy teams, but there are a couple of bands that I love. When getting old, it all becomes so important, but I was young and - and I'm ready for all the words I ever said about other groups. Without a doubt.
- Do you still have any goals in music?
- To conquer Russia!
- And besides this?
- (Obrechenno.) That's all. That's just it.
- This is what I mean: you have about everything you can ...
- We really can not wait how come, play a few songs and get to know people. It is quite a goal, man. We will not let you disappoint us.
- You and a half years will be the same age, how much was your idol, John Lennon, when he died. You have something to feel about this?
- I, you know, I do not think about it. I will be a year older. All point. At this age, do not end there. Can not wait for that moment when I'm forty. At that age, there is no problem.
- You think you are in any way can compare with him in terms of achievements at this point?
- No, no, no, man. John was great and he wrote great fucking music. One that changed the world. In this my ambition, really - to write cool music that will change people's lives. Get it or not - another question entirely.
- I still think that Be Here Now - the best album Oasis. What do you think?
- Big Brother (Gallagher is referring to his brother Noel.. - Ed.) did not like it - longish. But there was an excellent quality video and a few good songs. Many of the Oasis albums are excellent. I really think that we would never let anything crappy.
- You now have greater authority to the same nostalgia for 1990 is gaining momentum. Would you like to become a mentor for someone - to act in the role that Paul Weller has played for you?
- It's not that. We all, each team member, I want to write a great album and these inspire kids to the fact that they continue to make great music and live the life of rock 'n rollschikov - but this does not turn us into mentors. We ourselves are still learning, we just do not know, you know?
- Well, you do not want to come to someone in the studio or wherever and poukazyvat - do not, they say, so do commercials?
- No-e.
- Not at all?
- Nope. None.
- Is not it would amuse your self-esteem?
- We have everything in order with the conceit.
Liam Gallagher and a group Beady Eye will play on 2 June in St. Petersburg Glavklube, and June 4 - Milk in a club in Moscow.

Alan: my regret over turning down Prince Charles

CARDIFF - As the man behind Oasis, he is responsible for some of the most anti-establishment sounds of the past generation.
But Mid Wales-based music supremo Alan McGee has spoken of his regret at shunning an invitation to attend supper with Prince Charles – although he was pleased to give his house keys to ex-US president Bill Clinton.
The Creation Records boss, who has settled in Hay-On-Wye, is the first to admit that he was taken aback by all the attention and invitations from influential people he received at the height of the ’90s Britpop phenomenon.
By 1996, thanks chiefly to Oasis, Britpop’s influence was capturing attention all over the world – including America – in a Beatles-like wave.
“In the middle of all that, I got a note from Prince Charles asking would I like to come for supper?” said McGee, whose roster included the likes of Primal Scream, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Wales’ very own Super Furry Animals.
“For a week I was going to go and I just left the invitation on the sideboard before I replied. But then I just couldn’t bring myself to go. Prince Charles asked me to go to supper and I knocked him back! I’d pretty much forgotten about being asked to go until I was watching the royal wedding with my family. While they were looking at Kate’s dress, I suddenly found myself focusing on Prince Charles and I ended up thinking to myself, ‘I really should have gone to that supper with him’. Now at 50, I actually wish I had done it because now I would know how royalty think. I don’t know why I didn’t go – my wife Kate wanted to go. And I wish I had gone now because it isn’t every day that you get asked into royal company.”
But the invite was not, by any stretch, the only brush he has had with international figureheads.
Before Clinton made his headline-grabbing appearance at Hay Festival in 2001, when he famously described the event as the “Woodstock of the mind”, McGee said festival director Peter Florence approached him for a favour.
“I was DJing in Chicago at the time and I got an email from Peter asking if I would put Bill Clinton up at my place,” McGee told the Western Mail.
“When I told him I was in America he asked, ‘Can he have your house keys?’ So I gave him them. I was told that Bill Clinton had a nice stay and looked through my vinyls and commented that he thought it was a good collection.”
It was another political connection – with Tony Blair – that saw McGee criticised in some quarters.
The 1996 Labour Party conference saw the not-yet-PM being presented with an Oasis platinum disc by McGee.
And in the wake of the Blair landslide, McGee was rewarded for the part he played in the UK’s rock music scene achieving sky-scraping commercial success with an invite to a still- infamous Downing Street reception.
On July 30, 1997, McGee and his wife Kate, along with Noel Gallagher and Meg Mathews, joined Lenny Henry, Simon Mayo, Anita Roddick and Tony “Baldrick” Robinson to congratulate the new Prime Minister on his victory.
The Glaswegian says he has no regrets about taking up that particular invitation.
“When I met Tony Blair it helped me to understand how New Labour think,” said McGee.
“I got involved with government legislation and I even saw Peter Mandelson dance – and that is not something I want to see again! But the royal family is so anti what I stand for as a person. Even so, I regret not going to supper with Prince Charles, it would have given me the chance to understand them.”
McGee co-founded Creation in 1983.
In the rockumentary, Upside Down: The Creation Records Story, McGee talks candidly of the trail which led from humble beginnings in Glasgow, via drink and drug dependency, to being wined and dined at Downing Street by Tony Blair.
McGee and the Super Furry Animals attended the Welsh premier of the movie in Cardiff earlier this month.

Liam: Manchester United will get fucking leathered by Barcelona


LONDON - The auction for the Japan flag ended for $7,258.26, and the Red Cross Japanese Disaster Benefit at Brixton Academy raised £163,262.97.
On Saturday the Champions League final Manchester United-Barcelona at Wembley. Of course Liam, Noel, me, are supporting Barcelona and think they will win, as you can hear in this video. Liam also talked about his favourite Wembley moments, video
There's an interview with Liam in this month's Q Magazine 300th issue celebration, probably the finest magazine publishing stuff about the Gallaghers so often and being honest, unlike Rolling Stone magazine (politically left-winged and now owned by the french) always against them in a ridiculous way, and not even putting 1 Oasis song among 500 in their ridiculous lists, and using the Gallaghers to talk shit about them and promote other unknown bands.


in Italy, Liam about Pretty Green

summer transfers window: volcano, an underground river of lava ready to explode

MILAN - I think many transfers are already decided "behind the scenes", because it takes months to build them.
I thought Tevez was staying @ Manchester City, and I would like that, but tabloids say he asked to leave, I think he could go to Real Madrid, not Inter Milan, 'cause his family problems are connected to Spain, he's got a woman there.
Again about Balotelli's agent "the fox" Raiola: he's a bit of a comic character. About Ibra @ Real (another one of his players), at the end he answered "everything has a price in life" in a way as a western spaghetti film character or a gangster, lol.
Now Real Madrid and Mourinho are interested in Ibrahimovic. Raiola would never admit it but, as I told you yesterday, he always suggests bad behaviours to his players when he wants them to quit a club, to get other money. So when tabloids judge players as Mario, they should know there is someone behind them and their interests... And if you notice, also Ibra had strange attitudes lately, sent off for nervous reactions and never scoring goals, while in the first part of the league he was always scoring. If Ibra is going away, we want at least Cristiano Ronaldo, who argued with Mourinho. Ibra is almost 30 years old and we can see his performances in Champions League: not so good, it seems he doesn't like that competition. But about national leagues, he's winning wherever he goes since 2003, so Real Madrid might be interested in this. Now AC Milan's target is to win the Champions League again, so we might be not interested anymore in Zlatan, as we have seen we can win so many games also without him.
It's difficult to get Ronaldo, even though Berlusconi said he's interested in him, I would prefer the great Robben, another Raiola's player, even if he gets injured sometimes, but we have a long good story with Dutch players, since Marco Van Basten times.

this could be the situation now:

Gareth Bale, Tottenham > Manchester City 90%
Mario Balotelli, Manchester City > AC Milan 80% (Raiola says 2,000% City lol, so what were you doing, both of you, yesterday in Milan in a place full of journalists who were there for other reasons you had nothing to do with)
Carlos Tevez, Manchester City 30% > Real Madrid 60%, Inter Milan 10%
Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid 20% > AC Milan 30%, Manchester City 50%
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, AC Milan > Real Madrid 40%
Alexis Sanchez, Udinese > Manchester City 60%, Inter Milan 40%
Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal > Manchester City 50%, Real Madrid 40%, AC Milan 10%
Antonio Cassano, AC Milan > Manchester City 30%, Napoli 40%
Marek=Marco Hamsik, Napoli > AC Milan 60%

I will often update the percentages on the right column of the site, according to what I hear from time to time

competitions results


MANCHESTER - The Fred Perry competition is finally over, and we didn't win (there were too many entries) with the Oasis+Beatles photos, so I don't have £5,000 to share, lol. I would have made some special event or something for everybody, thanks to all the people who voted (when the comp was open). All the entries will stay there onsite, as an archive, and it's even possible to submit new photos and stories (without competition).
We did win the England National Football Team-British Airways competition for my photo with the English girls @ Football English pub in Milan, but then Russia was chosen to host the 2018 World Cup. Anyway, the girls can visit me again everytime they want :)

Noel: it was all about music, clothes, drugs, fucking football and having a great night out

MANCHESTER - Past midnight, May 1993. A phone ringing in the dark. The most terrifying sound on Earth, a sure-fire cause for panic. Unless you work with Alan McGee. "[It was] one of Alan's late night telephone calls saying he'd found the next greatest, biggest thing ever in the world", Dick laughs [Green, Creation's co-founder]. "It's like, 'Yeah, great, another one'. That was quite a regular occurence. Then he brought down a demo tape [that] had a version of Live Forever on it and it was like, 'OK, we'll believe you this time' ".
The story of how Alan McGee discovered Oasis by chance when he turned up early at an 18 Wheeler gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut while the band forced their way onto the bill to play for him has become so shrouded in misinformation and myth that many now believe the story to be apocryphal and that Alan was, in fact, tipped off weeks in advance by Sony.
Noel: "We were playing 'I am the walrus' and we could never work out an ending for it so Liam used to leave after he'd sung his bits and I would put some effects pedal on and I'd leave and then we'd go to the bar and watch the other three trying to work out a fucking ending". At this point, Noel assures us, he was approached by McGee, offered a deal, and chatted about the Pistols and The Beatles. "[We had ] mutual friends in Manchester and that was it."
After a classic deal-sealing handshake, Oasis signed to Creation four months later and Oasis were swiftly sequestered into Creation's cocaine culture.
Noel recalls, "The first day going into Creation, scrawled on the wall behind Tim Abbot's desk in big black felt pen was 'Northern Ignorance' and I thought, 'That kind of describes me, fucking love this place already, I've not been here two minutes'. It was all about the music, the business side of it was looked after by someone else. It was all about the music and the clothes, the drugs, fucking football and going out and having a great night out, and who would not want to be in the middle of all that?"
Andy Bell (Ride, Beady Eye): "They'd redefined what pop music was. We felt about 20 years out of date immediately".
Nobody could have foreseen what would happen with Morning Glory. Fame and money beyond McGee's wildest dreams. He says: "It changed all our lives forever. We all managed to live the way we wanted to live. If you want to be crass about it, we lived the dream. Funnily enough, by the time I was allowed to live the dream, I'd already lived it! Hahaha! Probably the most exotic thing about Britpop was that I was fucking sober!"
From the outside, it seemed as if Millionaire McGee had replaced his drugs excesses with flashes of Abramovichian financial and egotistical extravagances. He took out a centre-spread advert in NME simply to print his own review of a Sex Pistols gig. He bought Noel a Roller on a whim ("I'd promised him one night that if he sold so many million records that I'd buy him a Rolls-Royce!"). He hired Learjets to fly him and Innes to Italy to DJ at Fashion Week. And, seemingly gone totally Howard Hughes, on his return to the office he bought himself an entire building across the road that only he and Bobby Gillespie were allowed to enter. Alan laughs. "I bought an office block, I've still got it. I had an art gallery and Gillespie used to come in and talk to me every day. Me and Bobby used to sit there and go, 'Weird being big, isn't it?' I used to get told around '92 or '93, 'You've got £80,000 to sign a new band'. Then in '95 or '96 I got told I had £8 million to sign a new band! So I signed Kevin Rowland! I had a wish list that went 'Neil Young - taken; Paul Weller - tried, never got a meeting; Kevin Rowland - signed'!"
As the '90s wore on, Creation became synonymous with a different form of excess. Bands' whildest whims were indulged: Super Furry Animals were given 60-foot inflatable bears, a somewhat unfriendly single release including over 50 uses of the word 'fuck' and a tank decked out with a soundsystem to drive around the festival scene for a year: "We were questioning why he was spending £20,000 on a half-page advert in the music press," says Gruff Rhys, "when we could buy an armed vehicle for £11,000, put your name on it and have far more impact for your money".
And, of course, there was the ultimate ego-stoking extravagance: Knebworth.
"Knebworth was too big", says Alan, of that modest 1996 Hertfordshire gathering of Oasis' close friends and family. "It was like being at the Town And Country Club [now The Forum], and that was the VIP bit. It wasn't that much fun for me, not really".
