where were you while we were getting high?


MILAN - feat. cowbell. We are Beady Eye and this is Champagne Supernova! oh God thank you for letting us use them.
It was Liam making the songs the way they were... Guitar solo at 4:30. If there was sumfin I didn't like of this tune is that it was too loud, here's the solution, as a lullaby.
I noticed some old Oasis fansites are disappearing recently in the last weeks... one from Rome, Mexico, etc. ...is this the effect of Noel Gallagher solo? Oasisblues won't quit. Noel fans, you gotta "hold on", lol ("chi si ritira dalla lotta...")
Meanwhile, Beady Eye arrived in South America (Chile), for the 9th part of the tour.


here's another video (film) in Berlin

cercasi signorine in topless

NEW DELHI - Another great race for Jenson Button, from the 4th position, immediately 2nd. 
Try to recognise who is Mister Bean here... (the English actor is Rowan Atkinson). So many times in Oasis photos and videos I thought he was so similar to Noel Gallagher ahaha
There's someone behaving as Mister Bean this year... a total disaster. You know I dislike Ferrari and have a bad opinion about Massa, not a good driver. But I see that Hamilton makes mistakes every time when he's trying to overtake him (is it so difficult? It shouldn't be...). To be honest, the penalty given to Massa, instead of Hamilton, is just ridiculous.
Formula 1 paid tribute to Marco Simoncelli and Dan Wheldon, at the end Jenson said Marco was an amazing motorcycle rider.

Da notare Jean Todt che appena ha visto Giovannelli è scappato e durante il minuto di silenzio guardava l'orologio...
Telecronaca come sempre allucinante... Mazzoni ci ha messo un sacco di tempo a capire che quel gran pilota scattato dalla 4a posizione e subito 2o, non era Hamilton come continuava a ripetere, ma Button. Solo grazie alla grafica che è venuta fuori sulla tv...
Mi ha sempre "affascinato" anche la grafica della regia italiana che quando iniziano le qualifiche scrive "prima eliminatoria" (cos'è? un concorso di bellezza? lo sci? perchè parlano di "manche"...) come fosse un linguaggio d'altri tempi e una grafica primitiva, così come il telecronista fuori tempo. Se proprio vogliono usare metodi tradizionali di tempi remoti, suggerisco di utilizzare signorine (magari in topless) che passano davanti alzandoci un cartello (e non solo quello), come nel pugilato.
Forse usano quelle scritte perchè pensano che il pubblico è rincoglionito come loro... peccato che non vengono qui a leggere.
Alla fine Hamilton, che ormai mi sta sulle balle (si era capito?), ha risposto col contagocce a quell'incompetente di Stella Bruno, che gli ha chiesto dell'incidente: niente, parlo della gara. Bene, com'è stata la tua gara? Boring. Fine dell'intervista.
Tutto questo per dire che questa F1 in tv è tutta da rifare.

Noel Gallagher: Mario Balotelli is a total rock'n'roller

LONDON - Finally, also Noel Gallagher realised Mario Balotelli is a great player, Liam already did, last year.
Recently Noel said that he wants to meet him 'cause "he's a good boy" (well, not sure about that) and that he's a legend.
Noel has now explained that people love the Manchester City striker as he lives life on the edge.
The ex Oasis guitarist stated that the Italian attacker is a "total rock'n'roller".
Gallagher added that some of the stunts Balotelli has become famous for have caught the eye of the general public due to the fact they have always wondered what it would be like to act in that way.
Balotelli has been featured in the news for setting off fireworks from a window of his home, handing out money to homeless people in Manchester city centre and high-fiving fans from his car (well, plus two or three other things...).
But his form on the pitch finally seems to be living up to his antics off the field, with him scoring twice in the recent thrashing City doled out to Manchester United earlier in the month.
He now has six goals this season (though he doesn't play every game, but scores one every 60 minutes) and has helped City to the top of the Premier League.

Beady Eye 1st in the world chart, Noel Gallagher 2nd


LONDON - Another "Liam-Noel 1-0", after all those music magazines reviews giving 2 stars out of 5 to the disappointing album by Noel.
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds is 2nd in the biggest selling albums chart in the world for some days, Liam's Beady Eye were 1st for some days. And Noel's result is even more disappointing, as the 1st is still Adele, whose album was released last January (!). Same in Italy, Adele 1st, Noel 2nd. Almost the same in the UK now, Coldplay 1st, Noel 2nd.
Sorry for repeating but this is the result. Beady Eye 1st in South America, Japan, etc. and 2nd in the first 6 months vinyls chart, now still 3rd.
I thought there were more Noel fans among the liars of tabloids, but I see there are more Noel fans than Liam fans among the Oasis fans... so maybe there are more liars among Noel fans...
Another hilarious comment from a Noel fan: "gem and andy may be great but im ssure liam takes control of them, for example, they never get a word in at an interview .. its always about liam. they may have great capabilities but theyre not getting a chance to use them."
....oh sure, exactly wrong, the opposite of reality, probably influenced by the press the people read. These fans missed so many interviews with Andy and Gem... who always said that Beady Eye is a democracy. It was at Oasis times that only Noel could speak (and above all: decide everything, not Liam) and not Andy, not Gem. I would have never thought the fans could confuse Liam with Noel. It's so always about Noel that he even left the band to do his "only about me"...
Beady Eye are a band, Noel is a SOLO artist (aren't his fans always proud of that? the poor inexperienced boy? now suddenly he isn't anymore?)
Completely "blinded by what they idolise"... I have to thank them 'cause they always give me every day so much material to write about his fans' obtuseness.

Noel Gallagher @ Radio Montecarlo bootleg


MILAN - 5th bootleg from another Milan radio (linked to the one where I worked, Radio 105) to download here (the password is the old one, if you don't know email me), one song and video of him performing. Of course I don't like it and I find his voice out of tune, besides I dislike the falsetto

F1 memories: Monaco 1993

MONTECARLO - And about Montecarlo, I post this here too.
Adriane Galisteu (again about her :) was Senna's new girlfriend at those times. We were there that year (and also came back another time in that period), I found these old pics, and we have more. And also drove on that legendary circuit anticlockwise, lol.
On Thursday (you know, no Formula 1 on Friday in Monaco, the prince must sleep :), it was raining and (quite strange) Senna had a bad accident, so for the qualifying & race his hand was bandaged. And the super Williams by Prost was one second faster : you know, those were the times of so much electronics on the cars, so the driver was less important. The situation for Senna was very difficult, but this was Montecarlo... everything could happen.
Nobody could expect this, Prost the bastard made a false start, so he got a penalty (10 seconds of stop&go). As already happened some weeks before, in the legendary (Europe) GP in Donington, England (with Senna overtaking some cars under the rain in the first lap, becoming first), Prost made the car turn off and was 22th. So, Schumacher was first, but then retired for a mechanical problem.
Prost was one lap late, when Ayrton was about to lap him, the french didn't let him pass... Ayrton protested with his hand against him, then overtook him. Of course Ayrton won (and so he was incredibly first in the drivers standings), 6th win for him in Monaco (it's still the record).

the good and bad year of our Men In Black

LONDON - Photo: Beckham @ Madame Tussauds in London, wears an AC Milan shirt... great.
Strange, mad, year this 2011, isn't it. But definitely positive so far. The Gallagher "Blues" Brothers back with their albums and tours, Manchester City back to win something after 35 long years, AC Milan back to win too, after 3 years. While at least I've become the biggest fan that Liam and Jenson Button could ever have, I lost my supporting faith in Noel and Lewis Hamilton, I was a big fan. 
The (almost) "first black driver in F1" had a very bad year, and now is also single (that is not so bad :).
On the contrary, our other black hero Balotelli is having a very good year, "man of the match" @ FA Cup final, destroying Man United so easily and becoming a positive character.
Sometimes I speak bad of other countries for some reason, but of course I also speak bad of mine sometimes. Some people here (but not only in Italy) support some celebrities "because they're black", that is so stupid, in my opinion (who's the racist?). In England they usually (but not always, of course) don't even look at the race. I would anyway support Balotelli if he was white, I would anyway talk shit of Hamilton if he was white.

Fabio Capello saluted Manchester City hero Mario Balotelli as a reformed character.
And he praised City manager Roberto Mancini for keeping faith with the bad-boy striker.
England boss Capello said: "Balotelli is no longer the person he was a little while ago.
"He accepts referees' decisions and has put himself at the team's disposal.
"It is due reward for Mancini, who has wanted to keep him in the team despite having read all those terrible things about him.
"Balotelli is a player of huge class and his coach can strike it rich with him.
"That is providing the player is prepared to be of service to his team — both on the pitch and during training."

Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton says he's been through a "tough time" since splitting from singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The Sun exclusively revealed the pair had called it a day last week after four years together.
Lewis, 26, said: "These times are sent to try you. And it's about how you pull through them."
He is still in touch with the beauty, 33, saying: "We're friends and we can move forward. I have my family who are helping. So I feel pretty good."
Nicole wouldn't discuss her ex as she filmed Alan Carr's Chatty Man Channel 4 show.
An audience member said: "It was embarrassing. Lewis was what we wanted to know about."

Noel Gallagher, your daily liar

LONDON - Photo for the french Renault's lovers, lol. That would have been a better artwork for the album... When I got my driving licence (Noel still doesn't have), this was the car we used, the Clio / Clito, lol. Of course I would have chosen another one, but I had no choice.
Of course all the websites are writing that Noel Gallagher rejected "Liam's proposal" (?) of an Oasis reunion, while the truth is that Noel was the first one talking about it and kept talking about it.
To justify him and some poor performance, his fans say that, poor boy, he's a "new solo artist"...wow, I can imagine he's even without a band and without experience, so he must play all the instruments.
It's even hilarious how evident are the lies he always tells. And the press, so familiar with lies, attacks Liam only. Maybe Liam fucked their women or some girl they wanted, I couldn't explain their jealousy in a different way. Any person with a brain would take Liam side. Or maybe they just don't know anything about Oasis.
The last lie is: Noel Gallagher has insisted (again) that he won't be singing any of the tracks that his brother Liam is famous for singing from the days when they were in Oasis. The guitarist has been enjoying the success of his latest venture with High Flying Birds and being named as Q Awards Icon of the Year (yeah, give him even awards, go on). Fans who are hoping that Noel plays a few of the Oasis numbers are out of luck as he said that he's not even going to considerate it in his solo tour. He said: "I won't be singing anything that Liam's famous for singing." But not missing an opportunity to have a pop at his estranged sibling, Noel said: "I'm not a natural showman, but I promise to turn up." (referring to Liam's reputation for not making some appearances).
... is he drunk? Supersonic, Wonderwall and It's good to be free, were sung by one called Liam. Quite famous for Supersonic and Wonderwall.
And what about Noel's reputation of leaving the band? (1994, 2000, 2009)
I don't think even Noel would like to be always overrated, as he always is. He USED TO be honest and appreciated for what he makes.

More about the charts: in Italy the album by Noel couldn't even become 1st in the chart because there's still Adele (!) released in January (!)

More about Noel and Manchester United: last Sunday, Man Utd fans were singing "glory glory Man Utd"...LOL. Oasis used to sing "who the fuck are Man Utd"..."as the blues go marching on on on"...
I've got nothing against them, in fact I don't like Noel always talking bad about them. Yesterday an United prick came here to post his rubbish, "3 Champions Leagues"...comparing is too easy... (easy just like Mario scoring vs Utd :), compare at your "level": Mario's AC Milan 7 C.L., 18 international trophies... dream on and jog on. At least Liam sometimes respects them.

Noel fun's already over: ousted

LONDON - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds are becoming Low Flying, as he already lost the 1st position in the UK chart after just a few days. I would have never thought I could thank Coldplay...
At least Beady Eye were 3rd because they had Adele (but then they went gold anyway), and were 1st for a few days in the WORLD chart, 'cause they sold many albums in South America, Japan, etc. and 2nd in the first 6 months vinyls chart, now still 3rd.
In Italy the album by Noel couldn't even become 1st in the chart because there's still Adele (!) released in January (!)
Let me tell something positive about Noel, that is so rare, lol.
I think I will like more the "2nd" album, those remixes with Amorphous Androgynous. Surely more, as I disliked the first one. At first I liked very much "Aka what a life" and "If I had a gun", especially for the music and some instrumental parts behind Noel's voice, that is too weak... in comparison to the power of the music he chose to make... that is pointless.
And then those two songs were already boring after some days. Since the album came out, I'm still enjoying (but because I almost never listen to them) "Everybody's on the run" and "Record machine", but still for the music. Not for the lyrics (full of mawkish or boring cliches), and not for his voice (still weak even with all those effects to help him). It's for the orchestra, that is, not Noel playing. Clearly inspired by Ennio Morricone, as he said.
The best moment of the album is around minute 3:15 of Record Machine, at the end of the instrumental part, it's flying very high, that's really great (music for a film as some Beady Eye songs), but unfortunately he enters and says "you can't give me your reason". We can't, he is God.
I think if I listen too much, I would get tired as with those first two songs. Even some of his fans already got tired, even before the album was released, can you imagine me. Well, I was a fan of Noel. And I got tired. Some say: if you don't like this, you're not a fan of Oasis. But this is not Oasis. They didn't realise it's over. And if you think I'm not an Oasis fan, ok then I'm not a fan.

About Manchester United I was right... now in his diary he's writing against some Man Utd celebrities...

India paisley GP, George Harrison


NEW DELHI - Martin Whitmarsh, very kind person. Another different weekend (India Grand Prix, for the first time), still speeding.
Indian Pretty Green paisley GP lol. ...(I'm preparing for the Brazilian GP) ..."we need to know more about you"..."you need to be the best"... then they already know enough :)
Almost 10 years ago George Harrison died, big fan of India and McLaren. You remember my post some months ago.
The other day I was posting a long video with Oasis songs without Noel Gallagher, "The quiet ones" by Gem was clearly a tribute to George, for the sound and the fact that he was the "quiet one" of the Beatles.

Noel Gallagher, the rich tramp

LONDON - The fans: "looks like something that escaped from a gypsy camp."
ahahaha oh me oh my I'm running out of battery...
"Whatever they are he needs some fresh ones the scruffy little fucker", "White feckin laces on black trainers ......disgrace!!!!!! Liam send Noel some Pretty Green clobber he's a tramp !!!!!", "they are probably Russell Brand's old ones ..along with the trousers"...
poor Noel... reminds me of an old friend who was a millionaire and was wearing bad clothes, maybe 'cause being rich is a "shame"...
I was big friends with this guy (it's years we "broke", just like with Noel now :) and was really the same as Noel, also same attitude, same quantity of alcohol lol, and also had a horrible pair of shoes that Noel often wears.

Now, seriously. Some other music and football reflections from today.
The Guardian review of his album:
"What if I'm already dead? How would I know?" he ponders. Well, you might finally stop writing lyrics like that".
lol, even Noel's arse lickers of The Guardian gave him 3 stars out of 5.
Or maybe he would know looking at his shoes, lol. A celebrity must be cool. Also not, but he would "lose points"...
Liam wanted to sue the Guardian 'cause they wrote he left the stage when he didn't, and they had to say sorry, as Noel did with Liam. They learnt to tell lies from Noel...
And about football (today Manchester City won again with many goals, 2-5, even playing without many big players, and another young Italian scored, Luca Scapuzzi, plus 2 assists by him). You know Noel started again with his diary, but he was continuously talking anyway. Is this continuos mocking of Manchester United any good for Noel's popularity? because Man Utd is very popular... probably more than Noel now (well, not this week ahaha). I wouldn't do all of this if I was a celebrity. Am I a celebrity? lol right, and I'm not doing all of that.
Noel, just to make you realise: you are rich and the rich one is Man City now, not Utd.

people, make love lol

Remember to call your children "BeadyEye" by the end of the year, as Liam Gallagher said. 
Let's see who will have the guts (to ride the crocodile :)
Lie back and think of England, lol. 

We were expecting two new mixes from Andy to lead up to the UK tour in November. However he has been in touch over the weekend to give us this brand new mix - 'What The World Is Waiting For...' - and asked that it be uploaded first. The other two mixes will also be released in the coming weeks.

Beady Eye will be taking to the road in South America at the end of October before returning to the UK to play a five date tour, they will then finish off the year touring North America. The three tours will round off a great year for Beady Eye which saw their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' certified Gold, and the band perform over 90 concerts in four continents.

"first" gig review: solo Noel's boring


DUBLIN - Every website says it was the first one, but of course it wasn't the first concert by Noel "solo" (is he really solo? he always needs a band), without Liam... you can remember the Unplugged in 1996, and the gig for Tibet (so the Chinese communists banned Oasis, and Noel said the "fuck me them communists.."), the tour around in 2006-2007, London, Milan, Manchester, Moscow, Los Angeles, Toronto, Paris, Australia, etc., the TCT shows in 2010, and in every Oasis gig he always played some songs without Liam. So the Noel people saying he's a new solo artist, to justify some poor performance, they make me laugh. As you can see from the pic, they're sick, lol.
The Olympia Theatre in Dublin (about 1,300 people only) is buzzing. Hundreds of fans move in unison, the majority of them no doubt struggling to retain their excitement (but Beady Eye had the same reaction last March, the people already knew the lyrics of the songs). This is what they've been waiting for. This is the moment of truth. This, folks, is what happens when rock stars start over. Oh, but Noel said he's not making rock anymore. And then - around about the time that Sally's soul slides away - it happens. Yep, one unfortunate punter loses his mind.
"There's only one Gallagher!" he shouts, raising his beer for added effect. Sadly, Noel doesn't seem to have heard the poor chap. And if he did, it might have brought a smile to his face. But then, the eldest of rock's most famous brothers isn't one to show his emotions. Well, not when he's in the middle of a gig, anyway.
With Liam, he may give the best quotes in rock, but Mr Noel Gallagher is hardly the most gifted live performer to ever grace a stage. At least Liam has presence. Hands behind the back, legs spread, parka on - younger Liam is one of a kind. But his brother (the "talented songwriter") stared out from the sides; that knowing look in his eyes that said 'to hell with swagger, these are my songs, man, and I'll play 'em as I like'.
Even some of his fans don't like that attitude, because it was also Liam making Noel songs unique.
Place the guy Noel front and centre and it appears that nothing has changed. Different setting, same old habits. By the time he gets to the O2 next February, he might even be a changed man. But for now, there are one too many screws that need tightening.
Musically speaking, it's a fairly solid set - a neat mish-mash of old vs. new, his recently released High Flying Birds material sitting alongside the anthems of yesteryear. But even his fans didn't like much the choice of those Oasis songs, would have preferred other ones. A slightly reworked, acoustic rendition of Wonderwall could have been better (this is Ryan Adams version), and "Don't look back in anger" misses Gem guitar solo, there's a piano "solo" instead.
Maybe the drummer is playing some tunes too fast... Noel's got a skilful group of musicians to work with, but there's very little to suggest that Noel is enjoying life after Oasis. It's all just a little too boring - too rehearsal-like. Good player, average performer. Which is a shame. A little more banter in between songs would have been nice, too. He said he didn't want to talk, but then he was talking. He said he didn't want people to talk to him, but then they were talking. He said he wasn't going to play Oasis songs linked to Liam, but then he played songs linked to Liam. He said he didn't want to sign anything for anyone, but then he signed autographs.
Indeed, when Noel gets going, he could be a joy to listen to. But is it wrong to ask for more from a frontman? It's time for the guy to step outside the box; shake things up a bit - act like a star, basically. He does only sometimes in some wrong moments: avoiding fans waiting for an autograph... This time here there were only a few ones waiting for him, "four cats". This Gallagher needs some improvements.

2 stars out of 5 (just as many reviews of his album)

tribute to Marco Simoncelli

(Oasis music Live forever, piano version) - the funeral is on Thursday 27, 2:30pm on Italian tv Italia1 channel from Milan (also satellite). The people are still shocked.
His nickname was "Sic", yes he was also a bit "sick" 'cause he was mad :)
In the accident he fell and was hit on the only delicate part of a motorcycle racer - the neck - by the American Colin Edwards who couldn't do anything to avoid him and got injured too. Marco lost the helmet, that's really strange. We thought, just to smile a bit, that is was because of his hair.
The other day the AC Milan legend Gattuso, who is having a serious problem with his eye and maybe can't play football anymore, explained his problem and had an AC shirt with the name of Simoncelli on it.
Photo above: AC just a few minutes after the news of the accident last Sunday. Ironically, as Marco was an AC fan, they had the only match at that hour (and won 3-4 though they were losing 3-0, it never happened something like this to AC).
The event "Eicma international exhibition" will be dedicated to him.

Noel Gallagher the media slave

LONDON - Showing the 6 goals scored by Manchester City.
Oasis fans are finally (about time!) starting to realise about Noel...
" Noel is so full of crap these days. He bought up the whole 2015 reunion idea and then tries to act the big man saying no.
Song-writing genius but he's turned in to a media darling, whatever happened to my rock n roll?"
"yes true, Noel is media darling since he has a friend called Russel Brand".

Not a case that Liam hates Russell Brand, who was like the Yoko Ono of Oasis.
With all the lies he told, Noel could be a great politician... as Liam said: the Tony Blair of rock'n'roll.

All the websites, of course: "Noel rejects Oasis reunion that Liam proposed"... not really. It was NOEL the first talking about it, to do it for the "What's the Story, Morning Glory" anniversary.
Liam on a possible reunion: "I'm definitely up - well, Noel is the one that started this kind of thing. But I'm definitely up for doing a tour. I mean, as long - I don't think me 'n' him'll ever be in a full-on band again, you know what I mean? That's done, I think. But Noel was mentioning like a tour for the 2015 What's the Story Morning Glory, and I think by then, three years, I will have grown up a bit and so will he."

Noel said: "He's got my permission to go and play it. He can play it if he wants. I don't mind."
Oh thank you God, but Liam doesn't really need it...

The other day Noel won a Q magazine award (big news: he changed the shoes... but there's still a lot to work there) because he's "an icon"... he will obviously never win the Q Award for Best Frontman of All Time that Liam won... and Liam is much more an icon.

Mario Balotelli, rocket man: I try to stay at home more

LONDON - Mario was even on the first page of the Financial Times and is becoming a hero in England, they dedicated him Rocket Man, lol. "...they think I am at home (with fireworks :)". 
Btw, Elton John said Oasis are stupid sods, what a faggot ahaha I like his music.

After firing in the first of two goals against Man United, Mario Balotelli was booked for flashing a T-shirt with the words, "Why Always Me?" 
Fans, managers and commentators have been asking a similar question about the controversial Man City striker ever since he arrived in the Premier League last summer.
Not since England ace Paul Gascoigne has a footballer been in the headlines so often for his behaviour on and off the pitch.
The 21-year-old Italian has a knack of being sent off, winding up opponents and getting into trouble with the law. Yet his supreme talent persuaded Blues boss Roberto Mancini to pay Inter Milan a reported £24million for him.
That huge outlay was rewarded on Sunday with a stunning performance against arch rivals United at Old Trafford in a 6-1 win.
The £100,000-a-week striker was soaking up the adulation yesterday, with City fans claiming he was high-fiving them from his convertible Bentley.
In the run-up to Sunday's game Mario had claimed that he had changed his ways and was putting his wild days behind him.
He said: "I try to stay at home more. Maybe I'll stay in with my family, my brother or girlfriend.
"They weren't here last year. That's definitely helped. I am also growing up."
But this new, improved Mario did not last long.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, one of Balotelli's pals let off a firework in the bathroom of his Cheshire home during a party.
It caused a serious fire, with Mario and guests all having to flee.
Fortunately two fire crews managed to put out the flames.
According to reports, cops had to stop Mario returning to the blazing property to collect some things.
While that might sound like odd behaviour, in the world of Mario it is par for the course.
He had a reputation for being a handful at home in Italy, well before he joined Man City.
While he was playing for Inter Milan, then manager and ex-Chelsea chief Jose Mourinho described him as "unmanageable".
In June last year police officers in Milan found Balotelli and three friends in an Audi car with a cap gun. Earlier there had been reports of a weapon being fired.
And Balotelli had to apologise to Inter fans for appearing on TV in the shirt of hated rivals AC Milan (he's a fan).
An unsettled upbringing may explain the player's wild streak.
His Ghanaian birth parents, Thomas and Rose Barwuah, put Mario in the care of Italians Francesco and Silvio Balotelli when he was aged two.
Mario claims they "abandoned" him. But the Barwuah's claim they only let the Balotellis foster him because they could help with medical care for Mario, who had problems with his intestines.
Mancini, who had also managed Balotelli at Inter, believed that he could tame Balotelli's wild ways when he signed him for Man City.
It quickly proved to be optimistic.
Mario helped Man City to win this year's FA Cup and won man of the match, but he has earned £300,000 in club fines since joining the Blues and has been sent off twice.
He was also seen scuffling with team-mate Jerome Boateng at training.
And in March he threw a dart at a youth team player at the club's Carrington training ground.
On top of that, he angered Mancini by missing the goal with a silly backheel during a friendly against David Beckham's team LA Galaxy in July.
He loves his cars but is just as unpredictable behind the wheel. He crashed a £120,000 Audi R8 sports car in Manchester last August.
On another occasion, when police asked why he had £25,000 in his glove compartment, the player replied: "Because I can".
His love life is no less eventful. He came to England with Miss Italy finalist Melissa Castagnoli but they split shortly afterwards.
He was soon dating former Big Brother girl Sophie Reade. That did not end well either. She claimed he went off with her best friend. He is currently dating Italian actress Raffaella Fico.
There is no doubt that Mario is an attention seeker. He likes to wear outlandish clothes and change his eccentric hairstyles. At the moment Mario is sporting a mohican, before that it was a variety of zig-zag designs.
Diamond stud earrings are a favourite and he turned up for one game last year wearing a hat shaped like a giant glove.
The striker also stands out with his attitude towards his fellow professionals. Mario wound up Man United defender Rio Ferdinand by winking at him after City won 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final in April. In December he was just as provocative when he won the Golden Boy award, honouring Europe's most talented under-21 player.
When asked what he thought about second place Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshire, he replied: "What's his name? Wil... ? No, I just don't know him."
But Mancini continues to feed Balotelli's ego.
The Man City boss says he thinks Mario can become one of the world's top players if he loses his crazy streak.
Mancini said: "I hope we arrive at the day when Mario has changed because, after this, he becomes one of the best three players in the world, like Messi, like Cristiano Ronaldo."
But he may have a long wait.
Balotelli is already making light of his house fire last weekend by hosting a Bonfire Night.
He is currently staying at a posh hotel in Manchester while renovations are carried out on his multi-million pound property. But he has already invited his mates for the next round of parties.
A source said: "He has invited everyone round for a bonfire night.
"It was a serious fire and a fair bit of damage was done but Mario hasn't let it faze him."

Oh and today in a video answering to the fans on Twitter, we found out that the story about him organizing the Christmas party was another lie told by tabloids... so disappointing :)

Balotelli didn't set any fireworks off and thanks the fans


MANCHESTER - Oh this is new, they were just the usual lies told by tabloids...
Mario Balotelli has thrown his weight behind a regional campaign to promote firework safety, after his bathroom caught fire due to the antics of one of his friends at the weekend.
The City striker hit the headlines for the right reasons on Sunday for a two-goal salvo in the 1-6 Manchester derby win at Old Trafford. But after also making the news the day before due to the incident at his house, Mario wanted to set the record straight.
And, with bonfire night less than two weeks away, Mario was keen to get an important message out.
“The newspapers got the story wrong about me and the fire at my house. I didn’t set any fireworks off, it was a friend of mine. I didn’t know anything about it until I heard the shouting coming from the bathroom," he said.
“Luckily, nobody was injured, and my friend apologised to me for the damage to my house. It was a really stupid thing for him to do, someone could have been really hurt, and I was really, really angry with him about it.
It is an important message that children should not mess with fireworks.
They can be very dangerous if they are not used in the right way. People should follow the firework code.”
A new campaign, TREACLE, has been launched in Manchester to give information about enjoying fireworks in a safe manner.

from City official site

Mario Balotelli admits he was left speechless by the 1-6 win at Old Trafford (also: Old Toilet, lol).
The in-form Blues striker scored twice as Roberto Mancini’s men strode into a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
And the Italian international later dedicated his goals to City’s fans.
“The feeling was great. To win a derby away at Old Trafford is one thing, but to win it 1-6, none of us knew what to say. We were really happy,” he confessed.
"It was brilliant. It was a great atmosphere; it was a derby, so that’s what you expect. My first goal was a good goal. I’m a striker and sometimes you don’t think about what you will do.
Those types of goal, sometimes they go inside and sometimes they don’t. It was on target and it was a good goal, so I was happy.
I think the best goal we scored at United was Sergio’s, it was a good move. My second goal was a fantastic assist from Milner, and we played like a team for that one. Only a good team can score a goal like that.
I think this win and this performance showed everyone that we can be the best.
I think yesterday was one of the best we have ever played together for sure.
At the moment, we play well every week, but the derby was special. The more important thing was the result, then the score and the performance. All of them were good for us against United, so we are happy.
I have to say thank you to our fans.
Even when I have had bad moments they have always supported me. They have always sung my name and cheered me. That is important to me. I wanted to say thanks, and scoring two goals for City at Old Trafford was my way of doing that. That was my thank you.
United is now yesterday and now I’m focussed on tomorrow and Wolverhampton. I need to be focussed to score more goals, keep playing well and to help our team to win."
And Balotelli touched on why he risked the referee’s wrath and wore his ‘Why Always Me’ t-shirt under his kit.

“I did it for many reasons, but I’ll leave it for other people to figure out what it means! I’m sure people can work it out,” he smiled.
“The thing at the weekend didn’t come from me, it came from one of my friends and one of my brother’s friends. Maybe I should be more careful about who I let in my house. But it wasn’t about me, I didn’t do anything."

And will there be any more shirt messages?

“No, because otherwise I’ll get booked every week, so it was a one-off for United,” he concluded.

Liam to be actor in the Beatles film. More lies from Noel

ABU DHABI - (photo in New York with Eugenia Silva at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards where Pretty Green won).
Liam Gallagher may be recognised almost universally as a man not averse to acting like a petulant schoolboy. But so far these acting displays have been confined to his areas of expertise: the concert stage, the press conference, the paparazzi scrum and - more recently - the Twitter account. But a project he is spearheading could well see such talents soon displayed on the silver screen for the first time.
Through his company In 1 Production, the former Oasis frontman is producing a feature-length adaptation of The Longest Cocktail Party, Richard DiLello's book documenting the final years of The Beatles, from the founding of Apple Records in 1968 to the chaotic sessions for the band's last album, Let It Be, in 1970. While recording hasn't yet begun, Michael Winterbottom has been lined up as the director and, speaking at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival to promote his new film Trishna, the prolific British filmmaker hinted at Gallagher's film debut.
"I think [Liam] will have a part in it," he told The National, exclusively. "He's all over it." According to Winterbottom, they have a script already written by Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop, Four Lions). "It's a comedy set in the Apple offices."
There have been numerous Beatles films in the past, most concerning the period before they rose to international stardom. Nowhere Boy, Sam Taylor-Wood's acclaimed 2009 drama, looked at John Lennon's teenage years in Liverpool. In 1994's Backbeat, the story revolved around the band's time in Hamburg and Stuart Sutcliffe, their former bassist. Among the line-up at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival was Martin Scorsese's new documentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, a three-hour epic on "the quiet one", who Scorsese thinks led perhaps the most extraordinary life of any of the Beatles.
If ever developed, The Longest Cocktail Party could be among the first films to cover The Beatles without actually having them as characters. "The Beatles are actually off-screen doing the music," said Winterbottom. "It's about the mad chaos of Apple, so it's not dissimilar to 24 Hour Party People." Winterbottom's 2002 film 24 Hour Party People was a comical look at the rise and fall of Factory Records in Manchester.
The title of the book, The Longest Cocktail Party, is actually a reference to the excessive spending by Apple on entertaining the media and potential business partners, which led to its near financial collapse. The only thing holding the project back, claimed Winterbottom, is that they hadn't yet got the rights to The Beatles' catalogue. "I think Liam wants to do the music for it, which is slightly more complicated," he said, seeming less-than-enthusiastic at the prospect of Gallagher's band Beady Eye recreating the sounds of the 1960s. Instead, he said he'd prefer to use the musician's involvement to twist arms. "I'm hoping we can get Liam to tell Paul McCartney to give us the rights."
What sort of role Liam plays in the film remains to be seen. An obvious choice would be that of John Lennon, given that Gallagher has previously claimed to be the reincarnation of the late Beatle [not really... it was the press saying this, not Liam. If you ask him, he will tell you that I'm right. As the "bigger than Jesus" thing, it was Noel, not Liam]. Sadly, Gallagher has already scuppered his chances of playing his hero, claiming in Cannes this year while promoting the film that the Fab Four wouldn't actually be appearing. "There's gonna be no one auditioning for John, Paul, George, Ringo, and there's gonna be no wigs," he said.
Thankfully, Winterbottom doesn't have any concerns about the potential pitfalls of trying to direct the notoriously uncooperative Liam [?!? classic press throwing shit on him, he's VERY cooperative] in front of the camera. "I've met him a few times. He seems like a nice guy."


To the email readers: you know sometimes I update the old and recent posts, 'cause the truth may change a bit or a lot... or maybe I just try to be more precise, and only sometimes I remember to notify you about changes.
Noel at his "first" gig performed not 7 but even NINE Oasis songs. Boring. Afraid of failing. Scaredy cat. And, didn't he say that he was not going to talk during the gigs, and didn't want anybody to talk to him, blah blah more lies, he was continuously talking. Then, of course, he says that Liam likes to talk...
And, didn't he say he was not going to perform songs that were linked to Liam... here we go: Wonderwall, Supersonic and somehow also It's good to be free, as it was sung by Liam... I think the "Ryan Adams version" by Noel is utter shite, as Don't look back in anger without Gem guitar solo.
About the Oasis reunion, now Noel said no... so we are sure there will be a reunion.

Mario Balotelli song

MANCHESTER - (video in London). The best thing about the photo under the "do the huddle" (Poznan), is the "ManUtd com" lol, they should put it on their website.
Some new lyrics added last weekend. 

Oh Balotelli he's a striker 
He's good at darts 
an allergy to grass 
but when he plays 
He's fucking class 
drives round Moss Side 
with a wallet full of cash 
can't put on his vest
but when he does he is the best
goes into schools
tells teachers all the rules
sets fire to his gaff
with rockets from his bath
doesn't give a fuck
cos he did it for a laugh
runs back to his house
for a suitcase full of cash
Oh Balotelli …

1-6 dedicated to the jinx Noel Gallagher, poor City fan

DUBLIN - Nice shoes lol. Always the same (dirty) shoes, shoes of a bricklayer. Oh but it's because he was "working class" eh... with millions in the bank. As Liam says, "Noel is a poor City fan, a scaredy cat", who didn't even attend the win of the first trophy in 35 years. This time Noel said he wanted City to draw and that we don't win the league. What a jinx. 1-6 dedicated to him. At the "first" gig he still had to play 9 (NINE) Oasis songs, and even "Mucky fingers", terrible song. Boring. Beady Eye don't have to. Noel is afraid of failing.
And, didn't he say that he was not going to talk during the gigs, and didn't want anybody to talk to him, blah blah more lies, he was continuously talking.
And, didn't he say he was not going to perform songs that were linked to Liam... here we go: Wonderwall, Supersonic and somehow also It's good to be free, as it was sung by Liam... I think the "Ryan Adams version" by Noel is utter shite, as Don't look back in anger without Gem guitar solo.

Noel has admitted he hates Manchester United but still reckons they will win their 20th title this season.
Gallagher, 44, told french channel Canal Plus (ah if you tell to french channels...) that he detests arch-rivals United, their ground and boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
But despite City being two points in front of United (now +5) going into today’s big city derby, Gallagher does not think Roberto Mancini’s side can lift the title this term.
Talking about his loathing of the Red Devils, the former Oasis star said: “I hate them and cannot stand them, their ground or their manager.
“It’s a hatred that steadily grows. I hate them more than yesterday.”
(why hating so much? City is the one with money now... This is as when he was proud of being a ex-hooligan... I found a similar Noel fan the other day, complete idiot, proud to be violent, West Ham fan of course... as when Noel said "why don't you go and support West Ham and become a football hooligan"...).
Despite the fact City are nip and tuck in the race for the Premier League, Gallagher does not think the trophy will be heading to the Etihad Stadium this season.
He said: “I want a draw in the match at Old Trafford because if we win the press will elect us as champions already and that brings all kinds of pressure.
“We won’t win the title, we’ll finish second, but next year, yeah.”
Just fuck off Noel (you know: this is love, lol), and I don't believe the press would elect City as champions, they always just hate City and will keep throwing shit.

Shock! Horror! And other stuff. Yup folks. Manchester City stuffed Manchester United 1-6, at home yesterday. Nice. Such was the sheer joy amongst hardcore City fans that Noel almost cracked a smile outside his Dublin hotel... We said almost...
With his Man City scarf proudly wrapped around his neck the ex Oasis guitarist emerged from his City Centre hotel yesterday after watching his team batter-the-bleeding-bollix outta their arch rivals Man Utd... 1-6... Ouch.
Our Noel was on his way to his solo singer sound check over at The Olympia as he left hotel and mixed with fans. We were expecting him to come out with his top over his head with 'Up Yours Fergie!' daubed across his belly. Alas, a slight wee smile is all we got. Those Mancs eh?
In other news, Noel Gallagher's solo debut 'High Flying Birds' has gone straight to number one in the UK... Yup. Still no smiles.

Manchester United - Manchester City 1-6 (tennis)


MANCHESTER - Away @ Utd Old Trafford (Toilet), game, set, match. 
Liam Gallagher on Twitter: NEW BALLS PLEASE - LG 
turn on the fireworks lol, as in Mario's toilet.
As Oasis used to shout: THIS IS HISTORY !!! 
(United fans before the game said: celebrating the derby too soon... Yes yes...)
And I remember they said: you'll see against us, you haven't played against a strong team yet...
Yeah, after today: still not yet, lol! 
Table: first, City 25 points, second United 20.
Reminds of ten tears ago Inter Milan-AC Milan 0-6.
25 points out of 27 is amazing... just a stupid draw vs Fulham when we were winning 0-2. 

highlights videos here, Balotelli with the t-shirt "why always me?" :)
wearing that, he knew he was going to score, and could score even more.
Evans' red card, that would have been Mario's 3rd goal and if Evans wasn't sent off, maybe there wouldn't have been 6 goals, but maybe just 3 by Mario or just something more.
You can find the shirt here


20 minutes HD

r.i.p. Marco Simoncelli

SEPANG - Breaking sad news: the "mad" motorcycle racer died :(, the race has been cancelled. 
This is shocking. He was also an AC Milan fan. It's a mad Sunday, AC Milan from losing 3-0, won 3-4, though the referee was against us, non-existent penalty, irregular goal, penalty not given, etc. 
Manchester derby United-City: everything can happen...
...0-2 Mariooooooooooooo Balotelli and again Mario, 2 goals by him, who the fuck are Man Utd...
final result: 1-6 !!!!!!!!!! this is tennis. Crazy day. Another post soon.

Balotelli's bathroom fireworks

MANCHESTER - ahahaha legend. Two days ago he said he's mature now ^.^ ...stay young please.
The ones insulting him, are fucking boring people. He's a fucking genius 'cause he must have thought: I do it in the bathroom 'cause there's water there, nothing can happen, lol.
Two fire engines were sent to the house of Mario Balotelli last night — after a firework went off in his bathroom. 
The Manchester City striker escaped unharmed after the late night incident at his Macclesfield home. 
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service discovered a fire in the bathroom on the first floor, with four firefighters dousing the flames using their hose. 
A spokesman for the fire department said: "Crews managed to put the fire out within half an hour of arriving but remained at the scene until 2.45am to prevent any possible flare-ups.
"Smoke alarms were fitted at the property and the occupiers were able to get out unharmed. The fire was caused by a firework."
The cause of the blaze is being examined by fire investigators and police but is not being treated as suspicious.

Mario wanted to organize the Christmas party, but forgot that in that period in England they play football every 3 days, not as here in Italy with 15 days of holidays aha (maybe 20 this year)
The derby day has come...

Oasis Noeless, Noel cuckolded


MILAN - Liam Gallagher opened to Pretty Green clothes for girls and Oasis songs written by Beady Eye members to use in the future.
Here are the songs without Noel, "The Boys in the Bubble (wanna be free)", 1 hour 24 minutes. I literally adore n.1,2,3,4,5,7,11,13...

1) Boy with the Blues (feat. Mario Balotelli and some festivals, Reading, Leeds, Heineken in Venezia, etc.) 
2) I'm outta time 
3) Love like a bomb 
4) Pass me down the wine (some images from Sziget festival in Budapest, Hungary) 
5) To be where there's life
6) Songbird (Noel admitted it's a great song)
7) Turn up the sun
8) Born on a different cloud (some images from Liverpool's John Lennon airport)
9) The quiet ones (this is a tribute to George Harrison "the quiet one")
10) Won't let you down (I love the "I hate to say (it) (but) you're surrounded by clowns" :)
11) Thank you for the good times ("I drink to every circus standing here, among the few who tried to cheat the years")
12) Little James (why mocking Liam, it was a nice simple song)
13) Hung in a bad place
14) Better man * (early, cooler version from 51:55) 
15) I believe in all
16) Keep the dream alive
17) Guess God thinks I'm Abel
18) Soldier on
19) Ain't got nothin'
20) A bell will ring
21) The meaning of soul
22) The nature of reality
23) Eyeball tickler

* the image for "Better man" is the real reason why Oasis split... Noel saying Liam was throwing plums? bullshit. The brothers arguing? bullshit, they argued all their life. It's Sara kissing Liam on the lips... there was something behind...
Noel Gallagher's got a short dick and was cuckolded by Sara. Facts.
I've got it longer... I mean the Oasis timeline :)
As when in May 2000 Liam doubted Anais was his daughter and Noel left the band, meeting Sara in Ibiza in those days, we doubt Donovan is really his son. It's a soap opera.

exclusive: the Gallagher brothers agree for an Oasis reunion in 2015, to stop Noel's suffering

LONDON - Click to enlarge, as you can see from the graphic, I'm about to become the 2nd member of Oasis :) history, for longevity, overtaking a certain Noel Gallagher. 
20 years, timeline updated (Patsy Kensit backing vocals-clapping with Meg Mathews, Kate Moss tambourine. Paul Weller lead guitar&backing vocals on Champagne Supernova and lead guitar&harmonica on the Swamp Song, Johnny Depp slide guitar on Fade in-out and Fade away Warchild version).
I can see only one full line... the "not professional" one eh... Oasis is Liam Gallagher. 
He may have not finished some gigs, but no Liam, no party.
Inspired by the Stone Roses reunion, Liam is open to putting his feud with Noel behind them for an Oasis reunion in 2015.
The singer claims he would be prepared to put his feud with guitarist brother Noel - whom he fell out with in 2009, causing the end of the band - behind them to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic '(What's The Story) Morning Glory' album.
He said: "In 2015, if we can put our shit aside, we can tour and play the album in its entirety for the 20th anniversary. I'd be up for that, if it's on our terms. There's got to be two-way respect."
Noel has expressed similar feelings, and despite not having spoke to his sibling since the breakup of Oasis (well they did somehow, when the mother Peggy wasn't feeling good and Liam called Noel leaving a message on the answerphone, so Liam wasn't telling lies when he said he was going to call him - Marco), Noel said he'd like to celebrate the anniversary of the album, which has sold over 14 million copies worldwide and contained the classic tracks Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger and Champagne Supernova.
Of his leaving the band, Noel said: "It was a hasty decision I've got to say, and we could maybe have all gone off and done other things for a few years, in my own head the 2015, 20-year anniversary of Morning Glory is looming and we could have maybe come back, made a new album and played that album in its entirety and gone and been the greatest thing ever, but there you go."
Liam maintains Noel will want a reunion after he takes his High Flying Birds solo project on tour and realises how much he misses him.
He added: "He's the one that keeps mentioning it. I want to put him out of his misery. But I think he needs to do his solo thing first and realise he's not that good without his brother.
"I'm up for it - I'm not desperate for it. If it doesn't work out, I don't give a shit, I'm quite happy with Beady Eye."
Noel also maintains any reunion would not be about the money, saying: "I don't need the fucking money [classic lie by Noel, he wants the money and nothing else, he always mentioned the money as the only reason to make music], but I think it's a shame that songs like Champagne Supernova and Rock and Roll Star will never be played again. In a stadium. That kind of fills me with sadness. The money is kind of irrelevant.".
It'll be very relevant...

Liam on Pretty Green and music

NEW YORK CITY - Thursday was a big day for Liam Gallagher. In the midst of a tour with current band Beady Eye, the former Oasis frontman has got a lot on his plate right now, including his debut as a film producer for a movie adaptation of The Longest Cocktail Party, a book written by a former Apple Records assistant. His burgeoning career in fashion is also flourishing: last night, his clothing line Pretty Green – which just announced a special Quadrophenia parka collaboration with The Who – won Best Breakthrough International Brand at the WGSN Awards. It's a major achievement for any label, but especially one only 2 years old and helmed by someone with no formal background in design.

Pretty Green is up for a pretty major award tonight. Is it important to you to win?

I was coming through here anyway, since my wife is doing a TV show in Canada and I'm touring down in South America with Beady Eye. But I want people to know I care about this Pretty Green, so I am showing up to support it. You like to win, don't you? But it's not going to make or break my day. We've only been going at it two years, we don't really know what we're doing. We're still winging it – but we're getting better.

Who initiated Pretty Green's collaboration with The Who?

I'm not too sure, I've been on the road. A couple of people in the Who camp had the idea to do the parka for the 40th anniversary of Quadrophenia, and Peter Townshend and Roger Daltrey liked Pretty Green, so we were asked if we were up the collaboration. I said, "yeah, man, without a doubt."

How involved are you in the design process?

We have guys named Pat Salter and Felix Blow that handle all the materials, the design process. I trust them completely. I don't have much to do with that end, but I look at everything. If someone doesn't look cool, we'll have a chat about it. But [Pat] uses his imagination, puts it on the table, and I try it on. If I like it, it stays.

You already have 7 stores in the UK, and more on the way. Any plans to expand to the U.S.?

We'd love to; I'm never really here, but I'd like that. But it's definitely biggest in England.

I assume Pretty Green's popularity corresponds pretty directly to where your music – in Oasis and Beady Eye – has been most popular.

Yeah, that's true. The line's suddenly big in Japan, though. Italy. People really love it in England, though. Of course.

Would you say the line's look is overtly British?

It is, the new stuff's really cool and diverse, though. A lot of it's kind of like Indian caftans and stuff; that's all going down on the Black Label. We're experimenting now.

What's the difference between the Green and Black Labels?

Black Label is the higher-end one. If it was just up to me, it would just be the Black Label, all proper rock & roll gear. But some of the kids can't afford that, so we give them options with the casual Green Label. The Black Label is more suedes, more rock star-ish. Green is jerseys and denim.

Would you do sportswear for Pretty Green?

No, I wouldn't. I did that a lot in the Nineties, but it's time to grow up. It's for kids, man. I haven't worn trainers in ten years.

Has the mainstream fashion audience embraced your line?

I'm not that sure; I don't read that press. I'm sure some have loved it, some have hated it, some don't care. As long as the kids like it, and I like it!

Would you ever present it at London Fashion Week?

I don't think so, man. It's not my vibe.

Have you thought about doing a women's collection for Pretty Green?

Yeah, I'd definitely do a look – not sure I'd do a massive range for girls, but I'm working out how to do a Pretty Green look for women. Girls love the line.

When you started the line, what look were you trying to achieve with it?

The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Small Faces – all that era. 1967 to 1969 bands.

Were other designers – like Paul Smith, for example – an influence on tailoring?

I like Paul Smith, he's pretty cool. I wear his stuff. But I don't look up to anyone. There's always room for more of that rock & roll look to be done right.

Is Pretty Green confident in its own identity as a brand now?

Yeah, man, that's why we're going for it. Changing it up. Weaving, Indian influences. Looking through old Beatles and Stones books for inspiration.

What's a menswear look you disapprove of?

Pointy shoes, skinny pants. That whole look. They look like girls – and then they turn around, and it's a guy with a big nose. Men should look like men, I think.

And who got their look right in your eyes?

George Harrison, Brian Jones, Paul Weller. The Stone Roses looked good when they first came out, and so did the Sex Pistols.

What is Paul Weller's involvement with Pretty Green?

He's been dabbling with the idea of doing his own line for awhile, actually, and I thought it made sense for him to do a collection through Pretty Green, rather than starting from scratch. I think he'll continue to do it; it looks good. I'd also like to bring on other people.

Do you have any other musicians in mind?

Yes – Kasabian, maybe.

You mentioned stopping through the States for a South American tour with Beady Eye. What else is next?

Still on tour, doing the Beady Eye thing, then hopefully, I'll be starting work on a film – a Beatles film. There's a book called The Longest Cocktail Party, written by Richard DeLillo, an Apple Records asssistant in the late Sixties. It's just about his adventures hanging around that scene. I'm producing it as a movie. We're getting in touch with Apple Records to see if we can use some Beatles' songs for the film; if not, we'll do our own special Beady Eye version of them.

How is Beady Eye doing? Feeling good about it?

Good, man. It's all right, man. Good bits, very good bits, and bits where I ask myself, "what the fuck am I doing?" [laughs] We definitely have another record in us. We're writing songs, and we'll go into a studio in February or April. Then try to get in another world tour.

What are your thoughts on the Stone Roses reunion?

Blown away by it, man, can't wait. Favorite band. To the people who say, "oh, they shouldn't get back together," I say "they're not putting a gun to anyone's head, you can buy the tickets if you want them." They can do whatever they want. Go see them in 2012 and don't expect it to be 1989. But that's fine.

Would you want their new record to stick close to their core sound?

Well, I hope they go for that West Coast harmony, like the first album. That's a fucking magical album. I first saw them in 1989; it was the first live show I'd ever been to. Everyone else was into dance music, and I saw them live, and went "this is it." Blown away by it. It inspired me to start Oasis.

Any new bands you like?

I like Cults. All the reverbs, very New York/London vibe. There's a girl singing on it. That's the only new band I can think of I really enjoy. But I'm hard to please, man. I like what I like.

Has what you liked really evolved since you started music?

No. I don't think rock & roll really needs to change. Don't screw with it.

Have you noticed that trends are favoring electronic sounds again?

Yeah, I don't really like it.

Why? You and Noel both have worked with electronic artists.

I know. Noel worked with Chemical Brothers; I worked with Death in Vegas. Richard's cool; they're more garage, than electronic, though, I think. But yeah, there's a place for that. I just always will prefer guitars and drums!

What do you think of the digital age?

People want everything too fast, and now they've got it, so what's next? Something's got to change. I miss the record shops, the physical releases. I miss when being Number One meant something. I used to love to watch the charts, especially at Christmas. Even the crap songs were something you'd remember as a milestone for the year.

Are you feeling the effects of Nineties nostalgia?

Is that a thing? Oh, I guess because of Nevermind and all that. Well, I'm nostalgic everyday. The Stone Roses reunion reminds of that. You need to embrace the now, go in with an open mind. But you never get your youth back. You shouldn't, I guess: you need to move on, grow old, all that. I don't mind getting old – I'm quite interested in age.

Is that something you might discuss lyrically?

No, man, I don't really discuss anything in my lyrics. I don't even think about them. I should, probably!

other reviews, Noel 2/10, Liam 7/10. Noel's deficiency of Liam's energy


MEDFORD - Daily negative reviews, lol. I even feel pity for Noel... he needs fuel...
Noel Gallagher, the more talented half of Oasis' infamous Gallagher duo, has finally released his debut solo album — and it's ok. Since Gallagher announced that he was going to strike out on his own, Oasis fans worldwide have been betting for months that the album just wouldn't have what it takes to follow up Oasis.
While "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds" still retains that unmistakable Oasis sound, it also represents everything the artist couldn't do as a member of the group. He's no longer inhibited by his brother's insistence that they stick to familiar territory.
The opening song, "Everybody's on the Run," is the album's strongest track. Unfortunately, the album slowly and steadily declines from that point on.
Though listeners should try to distinguish Noel Gallagher from Oasis at this point, it's easier said than done when he's singing "hold on" to almost the exact same chord progression from "Stop Crying Your Heart Out."
Obviously, Noel Gallagher's aim with the album was to deviate from the rusty vocals Liam Gallagher delivered on every Oasis song. He even brought in a choir to give the tracks a more mystical air. However, it's hard not to consider how "Everybody's on the Run" would be near−perfect if Liam were singing instead, as his brother doesn't quite have the vocal power to pull off such a vibrant song.
Though Noel Gallagher referred to "Dream On" as a throwaway filler song in an interview with XFM radio, it also happens to be one of the catchiest songs on the album — imagine if Oasis were sort of cheerful.
That perky sound is also evident in the album's first single, "The Death of You and Me," to which Gallagher's lilting vocals lend a cheeky feel. The song features a veritable orchestra, with a musical saw and a brass band playing in the background.
It's hard not to think of the family drama playing out in the Gallagher household when Noel Gallagher sings, "Forever we'd be free/Free to spend our whole lives running/From people who would be/The death of you and me." Does anyone else think that's a thinly veiled reference to his sibling?The most unique track on "High Flying Birds" is the house music−inspired "AKA … What a Life!" The track revolves around Gallagher's jazz−pop fusion piano riff. This song is lighthearted and fun, and it signifies to listeners that Gallagher seems to enjoy making music without his brother breathing down his neck and constantly swearing at him.
"(I Wanna Live In a Dream In My) Record Machine" is another catchy yet somehow empty song.
Though Noel Gallagher is capable of writing mass−friendly music and elegantly phrased lyrics, he lacks the appeal of a frontman — the glaring, the boisterous energy that Liam Gallagher brought to the table. Somehow, each song showcases this deficiency.
Mediocre solo debut.

Katherine Griffiths

one from Germany (German superior intelligence lol...not sure about that) ‎..und Wertung: 2/10 für Noel, 7/10 für Liam... ich (Marco) denke 5 für Noel (weil manchmal 7, manchmal 3, lol), und 8 für Beady Eye

I think the point is that in general Beady Eye songs are happier, so with time they get better 'cause one listens to them with pleasure. If you're in a good mood and listen to certain Noel songs, you throw the cd away.
