The end of Oasis

Beady Eye writing the 2nd album

LONDON - Lazy fuck Noel Gallagher of course didn't publish the 2nd album he said he would have published in 2012, and even said there won't be a 2nd album, he's going to disband the Low Lying Turds in November and retire soon (another way to sell his album made of old songs).
Whisper it quietly but Andy Bell is fast approaching his twenty-fifth year as a recording artist. Having formed Ride in 1988 with childhood friend from school Mark Gardener, plus Steve Querelt and Loz Colbert who they met on an art foundation course at college, Bell and colleagues were responsible for creating arguably some of the most groundbreaking records from that era.
Their first four EPs and debut long player Nowhere still stand proud as flawless artefacts, while 1992's follow-up Going Blank Again (recently reissued to commemorate its twentieth anniversary) highlighted the band's development from being part of the then-lambasted shoegaze scene into genuine innovators of some repute. Sadly, as with all good things, it wasn't long before Ride fell apart and just two albums and four years later, it was all over.
After Ride's demise, Bell formed Hurricane #1 in 1997 at the height of Britpop, releasing a handful of relatively successful singles along with two albums. Nevertheless, critical acclaim proved hard to come by, mainly because of their similarity to Oasis, so it was perhaps no surprise that Bell's next musical venture would be to join the Gallaghers as bassist, following the departure of Paul McGuigan in 1999. He continued to play with Oasis right up until the brothers' acrimonious split a decade later, contributing to the band's final three albums.
Now, having formed Beady Eye with fellow former Oasis members Gem Archer, Chris Sharrock and of course, Liam Gallagher, Bell finds himself in the studio once more, demoing material for his current outfit's projected second record, the as-yet untitled follow-up to last year's Different Gear, Still Speeding. During an extended break, the discussion switched from the making of both Nowhere and Going Blank Again, to his disillusionment with music after disbanding Hurricane #1, to working with the Gallaghers and the questions everyone keeps asking; will Ride and Oasis ever reform and take to the stage one more time.

What are you up to at present and how are the new songs shaping up?

We're still at the writing stage and then recording a few demos from what we have. We've been making demos for pretty much the whole of this year. It's always good to have far too much music before going into the studio and beginning the actual recording process.

Are you heavily involved in the writing process with Beady Eye?

Me, Liam (Gallagher) and Gem (Archer) are all equal partners when we're writing, which means we all get to make sure none of us has a song that sounds too much like "me" - in the collective sense of the word. It's a good way of working because it means none of us have our individual stamp on anything we do. It's all about what's best for Beady Eye.

You've recently started incorporating Oasis songs into your live set with Beady Eye. Is this something you intend to do on a regular basis for the foreseeable future?

I'd say it's something we'll definitely do again, yes. The reason we didn't play Oasis material from the outset was because we wanted Beady Eye to create its own identity. So when we started touring around the world we wanted to get everyone that came to our shows used to the idea that we are a new band, and not just a continuation of the old one, even though when you come and see Beady Eye we look pretty much like Oasis on stage. Except Noel's (Gallagher) not there.

Are you pleased with how everything's turned out for Beady Eye so far?

Yeah, it's been cool.

Some people probably don't realise or might not be aware that you've been a recording artist now for almost a quarter of a century. How does that make you feel?

Old! But yeah, it is quite mad. Twenty years is a long time. We put out the twentieth anniversary edition of Nowhere at the start of last year and now we've just done the same thing with Going Blank Again. Thinking back from Nowhere, twenty years before that it was the end of the sixties, 1970 I think. To be the same difference from that with Nowhere and then again to now kind of puts it all into perspective. You think about how young rock and roll music really is. It's not like we're a million miles away from the creation of the (rock and roll) big band era. We're still seeing the reverberations of that happening. The music world keeps changing in a massive way. When you see the internet and think how music's changed in the last ten years, some of it in ways you'd never previously have imagined. That time has gone very fast.

I also remember even at your early shows you seemed to attract a large female following, which was quite unusual for guitar bands at that time. Did it ever occur to you that Ride would become poster boys of the indie scene back then?

I don't know really. I guess that was Mark (Gardener), he was the pin-up of the indie world back then! It wasn't something I thought about that much. What I thought you were going to say was there were a lot of Japanese kids at our early shows, because I remember there being loads of them at our gigs. The Japanese do tend to pick up on things really early. Liam and Noel said the same thing happened with Oasis. The first hardcore followings they got were with Japanese crowds.

It's interesting you say that as there is quite a vibrant Japanese scene at present that's seemingly in thrall to a late of late eighties and early nineties UK bands.

The Japanese love shoegazing! And so do the Americans. I never realised what an effect the '91 and '92 American tours had. At the time we just treated it as another tour, yet now it seems like that kind of music has gone on to become so loved in America. Except that love wasn't shown for a good five to ten years afterwards. And then suddenly I'd be going over there with Oasis to play and people would be coming up to me saying, "Forget Oasis, I'm into shoegazing!"

After Hurricane #1 finished, you then got asked to join Oasis, who were arguably the biggest band in the UK and possibly the world at that moment in time. Was it quite a daunting experience at first?

No, I wouldn't call it daunting. Hurricane #1 kind of finished in a... It was never really right, that band. It was basically just me trying to keep busy. When I started the second album, I hit a pretty big writer's block that I'd been fighting for a while. I managed to finish the record but it seemed like too much hard work to carry on. I didn't really want to if I'm honest. I think at that point I'd lost all impetus as a songwriter, so I quit the band and moved to Sweden. We'd just had a child as well, my first daughter, and at that point I kind of retired from music. That was me done, aged 29. I'd given all my guitars away and had no intention of making music again, when a call came through from an old friend of mine that worked in the Oasis office. She told me I was about to get a call from Noel Gallagher asking if I wanted to join the band, and sure enough half an hour later he's on the phone asking if I want to play bass with them. I decided to fly back to England and meet them, still not really knowing what I wanted to do. But then when I met them we instantly bonded and felt at home so decided to give it a go.

How did working with Noel and Liam compare with what you'd been used to in the past? Did it seem strange going from being the main songwriter and focal point with both Ride and Hurricane #1 to being the bass player in what was essentially their band?

Working with the Gallaghers was brilliant. They're both very different yet in some ways quite similar, and also very appreciative for what I was bringing to their band. I wasn't bringing much other than playing bass on their songs to start with, but they knew and liked what I'd done before.

Your arrival seemed to coincide with the band releasing possibly their best two records since Definitely Maybe and (What's The Story) Morning Glory inHeathen Chemistry and Don't Believe The Truth.

I'm a big fan of Don't Believe The Truth. It was definitely the best record Oasis made during the time I was with them.

Do you ever see Noel and Liam burying their differences, reforming Oasis and working together again?

I'd love it to happen. I think that life's too short for it not to happen. But, in reality, do I see it happening? At this point, no I don't. The matter rests entirely with the two brothers. It probably should happen at some point but if they can't make it happen, no one should force them to.

Obviously when Oasis split up, Noel went his own way and the rest of you formed Beady Eye. What made you choose to work with Liam rather than Noel? Was it something that just fell into place?

It just fell into place like that really. When Mark decided to leave we initially thought about carrying on. But because it had been the original four, and then it would have been three, we just felt it would have been impossible to carry it on. But then who knows what would have happened in a parallel universe? We could have just carried on with what we were doing and wait to see if Mark came back but that never happens. You tend to make snap decisions in the moment of crisis I guess, and then you have to live with them. Your life is then laid out in a certain way as a result. That's what happens; in certain times of your life you have to go with one big choice or the other.

I guess it's better to look forwards rather than keep wondering what might have been.

The brave choice is always go forward.

Bearing in mind the obvious impact of Ride's music today, I guess the final question has to be do you ever see the four of you getting back together and playing one more time?

Well, never say never. We're good friends now. We get together once a year and just have a few pints and whatever. We're all pretty busy with what we're doing, but personally, it would be a shame if we never got to play those songs one more time.

Noel Gallagher's top 10 worst bullshit

LONDON - A 50 year-old-belly when he was still young (already looked old). Too much beer and drugs clearly damaged his little brain ("proud to be ignorant"). He needs some running as Liam running everyday in the early morning (Noel is too lazy).
But don't tell Noel he's fat... he hates fat people, including his fans.
Well done Noel, they're complete idiots.
Here's the "top 10" of the most idiotic things said / done by Noel Gallagher. I surely forgot some, 'cause the guy is a complete asshole (as Liam says: he's a little bitch, a parasite, a fucking fake, he makes me want to throw up), and his fans tend to forget all about him. According to the media (tabloids full of rubbish and general opinion, of course without knowing the Gallaghers personally), Liam is an idiot and Noel is God. In the real world, Liam is just a kind, honest person, he's no angel of course but at least he's himself. Noel now is another person, and is even more an arrogant, shameless liar, playing the millionaire diva and the media darling. He's not worth half of the half man he is.

1. "not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it"

About the Oasis reunion. And he was the first one talking about a reunion even before Oasis split up (! ...says a lot about who's to blame...) in 2009 some months before the split (for a "5 year break"...), and in 2011 in an interview. As always, he's double-faced (first, licking arses, then insulting) and changed version. Of course he then blamed Liam for talking about a reunion.
Liam took his part of the blame and Noel left the band 2 days before the final gig.
As Noel always said, he's "interested in money only", and even for his first charity gig (Teenage Cancer Trust, 2010) he said he was doing it for the money...
He recently wished "something really bad to happen" to himself 'cause he's feeling invicible (now he's ill) and said in 2015 he could have a cancer.
He didn't play @ Olympic Games 'cause he was asked to mime (the organizers knew he can't sing) and the complete truth is that they were not paying him.
The "starving children" sentence is the worst one ever heard. He forgot where he comes from. Even his sleepy fans are now disappointed.

2. wishing to "catch AIDS and die"

to the rivals Blur. Of course most of the people think it was Liam saying that.

3. insulting his own fans

Of course they don't even realise, 'cause they're blinded and dumb. Basically, they're kids. He often insulted them (who made him rich), especially on his blog (they don't even read it), 'cause they want an autograph, a photo... or because they're fat.
Recently he said nobody in Oasis cared about the fans... 'cause it was Noel not caring.
His fans (the new generation) sound homosexual, sucking his dick even when it's evident the dick he is, and want to marry him (probably they've seen him always on Grazia magazine). Seems like they're on drugs.
Probably that's the reason why he insults them, as he thinks "fashion is for gays".
Basically, he's a scaredy cat, and scared of his fans, 'cause he's got the John Lennon syndrome, he always thinks some mad fan could kill him.

4. telling lies, long list

and playing the victim. For the Oasis split he blamed: Liam, the management not supporting, the band memberS (plural) not supporting, Pretty Green, etc. Basically, everybody. Not himself. Not credible. To finally admit, in New York when he was tired, that he "doesn't know why he left them".
All the people who know him very well (his best friend Paul Weller, his brothers Liam and Paul, Andy, etc.), have said Noel is telling lies. He's ready to be a politician.

5. insulting everybody, long list

Yesterday he moaned as always, about Liam slagging him off and saying he doesn't like very much other people. On the contrary, Noel doesn't like anyone at all. He also moaned about moaning superstars moaning, that is: moaning about himself. He should thank his sweet mum who saved him from the court for all the lies he told.
He's even paying a person taking care of his public behaviour... Noel is a "built" character. He also clearly needs a psychologist.
A night when he was drunk, he confessed the meaning of his "masterplan": reaching the success through the media, and not through the music.
The media rarely publish negative things about him, only a few websites, while every single bullshit he says is even on cuisine websites, continuosuly repeated everywhere, as if the Pope spoke. His NME gave him the hilarious "godlike genius" award, without people voting...

6. leaving Oasis 3 times

In 1994, 2000 and 2009. The general knowledge of the people who don't know anything about Oasis is something like "Liam always left the band because he had no voice" ... hilarious. Basically, Noel never had a voice for singing (as he admitted, he learned to sing in 2005... but still sings in falsetto to reach the high notes). He always had a voice for all the bullshit he said.
The band (formed by LIAM, who also gave the name "Oasis", contrary to what Noel's fans think) continued without him.

7. the man who had to pay the most money for copying songs

It would have been better to have less songs, but original ones, and they're really a very few, only some parts of the songs. He's not able enough. The importance of being unable and the laziest guy. He makes mistakes in his own language (he's "proud of being ignorant") and just like his fans he doesn't even know basic facts about Oasis history.
Even his wife (and son) hate his depressing music.

8. bigger than the Beatles, John Lennon was an idiot

As most of the bullshit he says, after some time the people think they were said by Liam.
If John Lennon was still alive, he would have hated Noel and loved Liam.

9. losing his British identity

His "solo" album (only 10 songs) isn't really "solo" but for the 75% made of old songs we had already heard years ago (2001 and 2004 sessions), and as his imaginary friend Gem says, they were not even all written by Noel, the laziest guy... He got 23 negative reviews from music experts.
He recorded his album in the USA, copying USA-style music (New Orelans, Hollywood, etc.), copying the lyrics from an USA band, copying the name of the "band" from another USA band, making USA-style videos, with USA actresses, saying he wants to be USA new president, etc. (his ignorant fans didn't even realise), and for his licking effort he had as result the 28th position in the USA chart. After all, Americans are not so idiot as he always thought ("fat fucks working at McDonald's", etc.)
He forgot where he comes from. The people loved Oasis because they were typically British, at least the music. If we want to listen to an American band, we listen to an American band, not a fake Noel Gallagher selling his soul to the illuminati... (for the second time, 'cause the man, he don't pay him...)

10. the man without a style

He's always been jealous of Liam for his voice, style and girls loving him ("the good looking one").
Noel not only is ugly, he also always wears the same clothes, from the 2001 session, 'cause he thinks "fashion? you must be gay". Old, ruined and unfashionable. It would be ok if you were an unknown gypsy, but you're a famous multi, multi-millionaire. Obviously not caring about poor people.
45 years old, 2 marriages, father of 3 children, he still spends £7,000 for a night in bar.
What a complete bad example for young people. Obviously the world can only get worse.


Personaggio costruito e pessimo.

リアム・ギャラガー来日インタヴュ

オアシス解散後に結成されたビーディ・アイを率いて来日。その際に、自身のクロージング・ブランド“Pretty Green”の青山本店をオープンしたリアム。チャリティ・コンサートを開催するなど、人一倍、日本を気遣う彼が、震災後の日本について思いを語る。

フォトグラファーにヘアメイク、エディターにアシスタント、海外のレーベル・マネージャーに日本のエージェント、PR会社の人々、通訳担当者などなど、多くの関係者たちが入り乱れるホテルのペントハウス。

それぞれのプロフェッショナルが各自の仕事を完璧にこなそうと緊張感に包まれるなか、その中央に位置する彼はといえば、拍子抜けするほど気さくな態度で、擦れ違いざまにも“やあ!”と声を掛けてくれれば、インタヴューの開始時・終了時には、わざわざこちらに歩み寄ると手を差し出してもくれる。しかもインタヴュー中は、終始上半身を乗り出し、英国人らしいブラックユーモアで笑いをちりばめることを忘れない。

それは天上のロックスターがわざわざ下界へと降りてきてあげたというポーズでもなければ、愛想をふりまく人気セレブのようなわざとらしさでもない。すべてが、リアム・ギャラガーという男の嘘偽りのない生き様に即している。

労働者階級からの成り上がりロッカーであり、そのルーツがDNAに刻まれている。彼のブランド“Pretty Green”が、労働者の象徴ともいえるモッズ・スタイルをベースとしているのは至極当然といえる。イリュージョンを生み出すのではなく、リアルな姿を写し出そうとする彼のフォト・セッションは、アッという間に終了した。

猛烈なスピードで撮影をこなされていましたね。

まあね、そもそもモデル体形じゃないし、そういう のってもっと適任者がいると思っているからね。

とはいえ、あなたがこのPretty Greenの顔ですよね。

うんうん、そういうことになるかな(苦笑)。いや、まったくその通りだよ。だが、オレが主役というよりも、服がブランドの顔なんだ。

そのPrettyGreenのコンセプトとは?

特にコレというのはないよ。基本的にはオレが着たい服。店頭にある服は、どれもオレ自身が着たいものばかり。それがコンセプトといえばコンセプトかな。

ステージでも着用されていましたね。

オンステージでもオフステージでも、両方のシチュエーションで着られる服だから。君さえよければ、シャワーしながらでも着てほしいと思っているよ(笑)。というのは冗談だけど、オレ自身が常日頃から着たいような服装というのがベース。オレがオフの時間に着たい服であり、もちろんその延長でもあるオンステージにおいても同様さ。

ビーディ・アイは昨年、アルバム『ディファレント・ギア、スティル・スピーディング』でデビューして以来、どんなふうに変化してきましたか?

歳をとったよな(笑)。だが、1960年代を彷彿とさせる美しいポップ・ミュージックを奏でるという音楽の方向性は不変だね。しかも大音響で。つまり、いまでもロックンロール・バンドをやっている。

ライヴを重ねていくなかで進化はありましたか?

オレたちの場合、自分たちのスタイルを守るため演奏自体はそれほど変わることはない。ほとんど不変だよ。ただ、これから作るニュー・アルバムでは少し異なるアプローチを試してみたいと考えている。

というと?

いや、まだ明らかではないよ。だが曲はもう全部完成している。すべて書き上がっている。あとは9月からのレコーディングを待つばかり。きっと、いいアルバムになるぜ。

オアシスの頃と比べて、いまのほうが自由を謳歌しているようですが。

たぶん、そうかもね。うん、きっとそうさ。だが、オアシスのときにもオレは自由を謳歌していたし、自分のバンドという気持ちで、やりたいようにやっていたけどね。ただ曲作りに関しては、あまりやっていなかった。いまは曲作りもオレたちが手掛けている。その分、自由度が高くなったと言えるかもしれないけれど、過去20年間オレはずっと自由だったのは確かだよ。

とはいえ、以前はお兄さん(ノエル)が……。

オレを支配下に置こうとしてきた。

つまりボスだったわけですが。

いや、ヤツがボスだったことはない。ほかのみんなのボスだったかもしれないが、オレのボスだったことはない。そんなのムリだぜ。そこが問題だったわけさ。わかるだろう? だから彼はグループを離れることになってしまった。しかし、オレは自分の主張を曲げることはない。

Irishit stupid animals

LONDON - The victim Noel Gallagher wrote on his blog that he's not feeling well... oh such a pity... it must be that "something really bad to happen" he wished to himself, 'cause he was feeling invincible.
Or that "catch AIDS and die" he had wished to Blur.         About 2015, instead of the Oasis reunion (as he said: "not even for starving children"), some months ago "God" Noel said that in 2015 he could have a cancer...
He's supposed to be an Irishman, who doesn't believe in God and feels to be God himself, always writing about God in his songs... and if there's a God would he give another cancer?

Dedicated to the racist Irishit people against Italy and Balotelli last June (Eire can't even play football and had to pick an Italian old manager from Milan, mocking them all the time and they don't even realise). As you can read from Paolo in the best (and funniest) book about Oasis, Irishit people are historically shite and fake anti-racist people, as confirmed from the internet trolls all the years. 
Still today, Irish people are "lazy, freeloaders (someone who doesn't work and exploits chances to get free stuff whenever possible, and mooches off their family, sitting all day watching soaps, steals all their moms hard earned money to do nothing all day and contribute shit to society. Someone who is a waste of air and takes up valuable space on the planet earth), half animals, stupid, capable of nothing but only cheating and defrauding." 
confirmed by the liar Noel Gallagher, the fake man who is STILL paying the most money for copying songs, 'cause he's a thief and the laziest guy ever (admitted: "my girlfriend told me to get a life, she said: boy, you lazy" - video copied from the Kinks, song from the La's), writing/copying 3 new songs every 4 years (the rest taken from previous sessions, not written by him, as confirmed by his imaginary friend Gem).
In England there are still many jokes about the Irishit. Another confirmation that Ireland is shite is the emigration, they rarely stay in their own country (the Gallaghers parents too, the father was a drunk violent man beating up his wife and Noel... the Irishit think that Oasis were Irish, 'cause they have nothing to be proud of their rainy country).
"...Gli Inglesi, notoriamente scontrosi, sospettosi di chiunque non appartenga alla loro razza, non hanno mai accolto volentieri gli Irlandesi; già nel 1413, la Corona britannica emanava leggi riguardanti la deportazioni e l'allontanamento dei "vagabondi irlandesi" dal proprio suolo. Nel sedicesimo e nel diciassettesimo secolo, governassero i Tudor, gli Stuart o Cromwell, truppe inglesi furono quasi costantemente impegnate in campagne militari sul suolo irlandese, nell'ambito di conflitti caratterizzati da una ferocia che lascia tuttora sconcertati; molti dei soldati arruolati per queste campagne provenivano da Manchester, anche se, tempo dopo, tra gli abitanti di Manchester e gli Irlandesi si sarebbe stabilito un legame assai più pacifico, con il denaro, ovviamente a fare da paciere. Infatti, la capacità dell'Irlanda di esportare lana grezza, lino e, in seguito, bestiame, prodotti caseari e pesce in Inghilterra fece sì che tra essa e Manchester si stabilisse un legame economico e culturale molto solido, che dura tutt'oggi. Nondimeno, l'immagine degli Irlandesi che gli Inglesi hanno sempre avuto in mente non è mai stata bella, tutt'altro. Un mezzo di derisione particolarmente potente è sempre stato l'umorismo, e spesso i giornali britannici hanno riportato vignette anti irlandesi; in esse gli Irlandesi venivano dipinti come sfaticati, scrocconi, dei mezzi animali, stupidi, incapaci di qualunque cosa se non imbrogliare e truffare. "Oh allora, senti questa: c'è un Irlandese che..." - molte barzellette iniziavano così. " [...]

Noel Gallagher & his fans: half "men" with heads planted up their own arses


LONDON - Noel Gallagher (the man with the head planted up his own ass) said: Beady Eye don't have the songs... said by one who is famous for being the man who had to pay the most money for copying songs, published a "solo" album with only 10 songs, made by 75% of songs taken from 2001 and 2004 sessions, and his imaginary friend Gem said they were not even all written by Noel...
plus, the "solo" album of course contains other copied songs (from the USA, losing his British identity), a total lack of inspiration...
classic Noel: he's dying of jealousy and he lacks of energy as well...
He suffers from inferiority complexes, that's why there's a person helping him with his behaviour in public...
He needs a psychologist as well...
Today another Irishit blinded fan of his Irishit idol (one of his fans who's been sleeping all this time), of course insulting and menacing without knowing the people (just like the Irishit racist fans against Italy and Balotelli last summer), a troll picking fights on the internet and he thinks he loves everyone... yes, in his dreams. Sounds like the press of the media darling Noel from the tabloids, who think he's a perfect man and never insults anyone...
He says that I "hate the main reason for Oasis"... nah, I'm not Noel Gallagher, spending every waking minute insulting someone (even his own fans), hating Oasis and leaving them 3 times and not wanting a reunion "not even for starving children", as he said the other week...
The idiot also said he's got a "huge cock":.. wow very interesting, I'm jealous... he should tell us his secret to have a huge dick, the girls must be delighted also for his huge brain... it must be because he spends his time masturbating on the internet, that must be the way to have a huge cock. Because he's very far from Africa, he just CAN'T have a huge cock. Then we found his "girlfriend", an ugly shite... very disappointing from the new Irish version of Rocco Siffredi...
If you're interested in huge cocks, I'll tell you all about him. Of course he's not living in his own irishit country and emigrated... classic. Now you see why in England there are so many jokes about Irishits. Unfortunately he's in special needs (sounds like he hates autistic people... probably because his brain is too small... I know a beautiful English girl who is autistic and she's the most amazing person ever), and he can't even speak his own language (and surely doesn't even know where it comes from). Then we found out he's a huge fan of Rocky, the Italian stallion... then it's all clear now: as his jealous idol, he's dying... them Latin lovers have huge cocks... 
It's the usual hero from the internet, who says that Noel, Liam and Paul Gallagher are his "good friends" (nah, they never told me about him), trying to copy Noel with his imaginary friend Gem, and even using the copyrighted logo of a shop for his "band", a total failure (of course I called the shop to tell them), this is his moment of celebrity ...typical Noel Gallagher fan. He probably feels to be Noel, insulting and paying royalties for stuff made by other peple. He doesn't even know anything about the shop and the curse of Oasis...
Oh of course he's a kid (as Noel calls his fans "really kids"), born in 1990, that is: 4 years old in 1994... he can know Oasis only from what other people say, and it's clear in his total lack of knowledge of Oasis things (doesn't even know where the Gallaghers were born) and people linked to them... (Oasis were a MEDIA thing, as the media darling Noel confessed his masterplan when he was drunk: reaching the success through the media and not through the music...).
It must be the idioticplan of that Irishit, but these kids are supposed to follow Justin Bieber and those ones, they're lost generations without a life...
Of course, he could only be a fan of Arsenal, the club for anal arseholes, that has always been full of french fags, manager included ("fuck off Wenger and his socialist football" - Noel Gallagher).
The masterpiece is the idiot moaning and acting as a victim... exactly just like his idol... and also, repeating the same things as him, having imaginary friends and telling lies. The most perfect Noel Gallagher idiotic blinded fan (blinded for masturbating).
What a bad example for young people, Noel Gallagher...
Anyway, thanks for visiting my website despite you hate it... says a lot about you.

Liam Gallagher celebrating his birthday in style

LONDON - Liam looking cool as always, not really as always the same Noel Gallagher's 2001 sessions gyspy clothes...
There was no way that Liam Gallagher was going to enter his forties with a whimper.
The Beady Eye frontman booked out one of London’s top nightclubs, Whisky Mist, to mark his milestone 40th last night.
And in a bid to make sure the brutal bar tab didn’t get too silly, he even got vodka brand Ciroc to sponsor it.
In the old days it would have been Red Stripe and Benson & Hedges backing the binge, but times change.
A source said: “Liam isn’t shy about hitting the big 4-0. He’s got all his friends and family down for a tear-up.
“He’s had a brilliant week over in Madrid doing some business with Pretty Green and had a belter of a night out. He’s starting a new decade in his life with a bang.”
Liam’s missus Nicole Appleton helped organise the party.
Close pals and family were invited, plus a few famous faces.
The date of the bash made it difficult for any of the Manchester City stars to attend though.
It was less than 48 hours before City’s Sunday teatime game with Arsenal, so only Mario Balotelli would risk making an appearance. However, Liam did receieve birthday wishes from one of his favourite Blues stars.
Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero sent the rocker a happy birthday message yesterday. Liam treated himself to a new ring to mark the birthday.
The jewels resemble the shape of the mod target and cost him a small fortune.
He told me the diamonds had special significance with outer space when I saw him at the GQ Awards.
Liam might be 40, but he’ll always have the spirit of a teenager.

Alan McGee: Liam is a courteous gentleman

LONDON - Same thing said by people who know Liam personally... and not from tabloids...
McGee, already a hardcore party animal, was swept away by the "mad for it" craziness of his new signings.
He said that Liam Gallagher was the only person who visited him when he was in rehab in the early nineties.
"There's a story I want to tell about Liam which sums the man up to me," he says. "Everyone's got an idea of what he's like. But to me the real Liam is a courteous gentleman. I was one of the first casualties of the Nineties scene. After partying straight for seven years, I spent nine months in rehab. When I got clean I came back to London around October 1994 really shaken up. You'd think that people would welcome you back with open arms. But most people were too embarrassed to speak to me. I was the elephant in the living room. The one person who came up and spent two hours talking to me was Liam. It was in December 1994, the night after Oasis had recorded Jools Holland, with the suits on and the orchestra.
Even people from my own record company, Creation, didn't know what to say. But Liam was the one to say, `Are you all right?' For that I will always love him."
"I doubt I'll ever grow up properly - and Liam certainly won't either. To me he's like one of the old blues guys - or Paul Weller or Mick Jagger.
"Liam will be just the same. He'll be up on stage when he's in his seventies - whether it's a small gig in the 100 Club or Wembley Stadium - and he'll be doing it because he loves music."

Liam Gallagher, 40 years old

LONDON - Happy birthday Liam! 
stay real as you are, not a media darling as Noel Gallagher, that means to be a liar as he is. 
Don't listen to the haters, the other day when you were in Madrid for Real-Manchester City they wrote loads of bullshit as always, even that "Liam didn't look happy" ahahaha had a lot of fun and staying young as always.
"Q magazine" even put the "starving children" sentence on the cover... idiots.
Liam will party for his birthday @ London's Whisky Mist ;) (you're NOT invited, lol).
He will perform an acoustic live in January in London for the fashion week, singing 8 tracks, for 120 people only. More info soon. 


from Jeff: "...I’m working on for the album."

Del Piero refused Noel Gallagher's Manchester City

SYDNEY - As the little bitch Noel Gallagher is "interested in money only", as he always says (even for charity gigs), also the "friendship" with Alessandro Del Piero started for money (a compilation made by Del Piero with his favourite songs, including Wonderwall, for Sony, they met through Andrea). Noel do you keep a receipts for the friends that you buy?

New Sydney FC playmaker, Italian maestro Del Piero has revealed that he rejected pleas from Oasis guitarist and Manchester City fan (not really, he's a fake and supports Celtic) Noel Gallagher (of course the websites wrote that it was Liam, who is friends with AC Milan legend Maldini, not Del Piero) to join the reigning Premier League champions.
Del Piero arrived in Sydney on Sunday to begin a two-year contract worth a reported $4 million with the Sky Blues in A-League. The Juventus and Italy legend's salary makes him the best paid footballer of any code to have played in Australia.
"Yeah, he (Noel Gallagher) told me a lot of times about City, and the dream for him is me with a jersey of City," Del Piero told Fox Sports in an in-depth interview on Monday. "But, it’s a dream for Noel. Now the reality is me with a Sydney FC jersey."
Del Piero, who scored 314 goals in a club record 708 games with Juventus and won six Serie A titles, also turned down offers from Swiss club Sion FC and English Premier League giants Liverpool to sign on the dotted line with Sydney FC.
He has played 91 games for Italy and scored 27 goals, including the second of the Azzurri's two goals in their 2006 World Cup semifinal win over Germany (useless goal, the game was over).

Noel Gallagher always insulted Australians and his idol Del Piero joined them.
The poor victim Noel Gallagher now said Liam changed his mind about suing Noel... ahaha said by one who changes his mind about everything... It's a bit different: YOUR SWEET MUMMY saved your ass.

Noel Gallagher & his fans back to drugs

CARDIFF - Most boring people in the world: Noel Gallagher's fans... yes, the internet wankers (just like his copied, depressing songs with the same 5 chords, as he said). We always have to repeat the same things around, they don't even know Oasis history basics, etc., they make you become the same as them... we won't. Oasisblues rules... I've seen on some websites there are even people inspiring from here...well done dear disciples, go forth and multiply... Oasisblues docet. Oh sorry, you still have to learn where your English language comes from... they still have to realise the ignorant ones are them, who can only speak one language... close minded as their idol ("proud to be ignorant", wow), and we have to help them to understand how idiotic they are...
In their little brains: many people doing something, many liking something, many speaking something, etc. = amazing thing, "better than yours"... While it's exactly the opposite. They're used to be part of the flock.
It's amazing how they feel offended about the truth on their idiotic idol... they're not used to something called TRUTH... that it always offends. Attacking him = attacking them... says a lot about their lack of personality.
They're TALIBAN fans... schizophrenic (as Noel who was - is - a dyslexic weirdo), they think the world is Noel Gallagher... I tell you, there are two or three other things eh... get a life...
With Liam's fans it's different... as a real man, he can defend himself.
Noel's blinded fans clearly have some brains problems, so if they don't want to have a psychologist (as Noel, a person taking care of his public behaviour... still not working...), they should consider to go back to drugs or medicines as their idol.
As always, they're fighting against ghosts on the internet (and being anonymous ghosts themselves), against everyone as their idol insulting everybody, without even knowing the people they're talking to. Just like Noel with imaginary friends. Really feel a deep pity for them... lost lives, lost new generations. What a waste of life.
They even think it's me speaking with them around... nah, I already told you, I don't want to have my hands dirty.
You must have noticed that Noel always repeats the same things, and he must have realised that (more likely: the person helping him, told him), so he's changing versions of the bullshit he says, always contradicting himself.
As I knew, only a few websites published the latest bullshit from the "God" they idolise... they build only the media darling Noel Gallagher they want, in their fantasy, a perfect one.

The hilarious thing about all this "reunion issue" is that it was NOEL the first one talking about a reunion in 2015, and of course, as with everything, being a double faced Gemini, he changed version. He was the first one talking about a "5 year break" (after the final gig in Milan) even BEFORE Oasis broke up... says a lot about who's to blame... I remember very well, it was in 2009, months before the split. Then again, last year (2011) he was the first one, before Liam, talking about a reunion for the anniversary of Morning Glory.

I wonder how some websites can still support him. He, Noel Gallagher the little bitch, probably pays them...
just like all the money he had to pay for copying songs, the man who had to pay the most money in history.

Noel Gallagher idiot of the century - more fans reactions

CARDIFF - So it was R.I.P. Noel Gallagher 11 September 2012.
Can you imagine if it was Liam saying those things... would have been a scandal. They became just "Noel's quotes"... usual bullshit. As I knew, only a few websites published them... they build only the Noel Gallagher they want, in their fantasy, a perfect one.
I see there are even still some children (not the "starving children in the world depending on it", Noel's mother must be proud of him...), I mean the arse lickers of the fake man, the liar Noel Gallagher, still defending him even in front of the evidence of how idiot he is. They don't even realise (too difficult for their little "brains behind the band"), they're sleeping, as usual, they not only don't know him personally, of course (as they live far away in another world), as typical Noel's blinded fans they don't even listen to his interviews, they don't even read his blog, where he DID insult them, many times. Well done Noel, they're total cunts. Of course they don't have the balls to put their names, they must have learned from their idol, the scaredy cat. They're the usual little fankids, "really kids", as Noel calls them, lost generations. They still love my website, says a lot about them... their name must be Sotomayor, the one who likes to be sodomized. They're passive, as I was writing in some post. The little bitch Noel Gallagher with all his money must have paid them for their services... after all, it's the same job of their mothers (very common job, the oldest in human history, especially among American idiots without a life, idolising celebrities as teenagers, disappointed by Britney Spears, they changed her poster with Noel Gallagher's, naked on his Grazia magazine, singing in falsetto to reach the high notes, with male fans who want to marry him... these people, as Noel, need a doctor, a very good one ... it's one year I'm saying he needs a psychologist).
They can't live without his depressing and depressed music, made with the same 5 chords, as he said.
They're worried about their idol's album sales, if you reply to his insults to everybody, it's like offending them... says a lot about their lack of personality...
Noel Gallagher, with all the money he's got, is a deeply sad man. Miserable.
After all, Noel, British (?) icon (?), already licked their arses with his American album (recorded there, with American-style songs, American videos, American band-copied name, another American band-copied lyrics, American actresses, etc. and candidating himself as new American president), having a disappointing result... 28th in the chart.
No he's not a British icon, he didn't even qualify from the group stages, Liam reached the final. The media darling Noel Gallagher wins prizes only when people are NOT voting... (as in a dictatorship), as the "godlike genius" from his Nme.
If I find (I will) Noel Gallagher somewhere, I should make him pay for all the bullshit he always says, insulting even his own fans who made him rich. But they deserve to be insulted, having seen the assholes they are...

more from real fans:

"Liam constantly shows his appreciation when the fans are pumped at a gig and always gives some attention when people are around. If Noel likes to be grumpy, fair play to him, but speaking in the name of everyone is just a lame manipulation of facts."

"As for the starving children comment, not wise. It's something Johnny Rotten would have said back in his heyday. If Noel has any intention of slowly aging into an elder statesman of UK rock, he needs to think before he makes such juvenile statements. It's one thing coming from a young punk, it's another thing coming from a middle aged multi, multi-millionaire."

"I don't believe it for a second that the other band members cared less about the fans than Noel did. You can tell the difference in their attitudes towards their fans...demonstrated by their last/current tours. Liam truly does give a shit, you can tell."

"I don't agree with Noel saying no one gave a shit about the fans. I was watching Lord Don't Slow Me Down a few weeks ago and there was a clip from the documentary where Noel and Liam are fighting and Liam curses Noel out about him not being appreciative of the fans... Something along those lines. I've always been a big Noel fan, and I find Liam to be okay, and I must admit I've usually took Noel's side, but I'm with Liam on this one. I definitely believe Liam cares more about his fans, not to say Noel doesn't, but I think, when watching interviews and documentaries, Liam does express his appreciation towards the fans and it was always so obvious that he loved Oasis, more than Noel. I also don't think Liam wants to do a reunion for more money or fame, they all already have all that... So isn't it obvious it'd be for the fans? They both know how much the fans want it, Liam wants it, if Liam wants it Gem and Andy must be behind it too, right? At this point Noel seems like the one who doesn't give a shit, really."
(Jenn)

"The only loser in this war is Noel, when he makes comments like this. Don't you see? Liam has nothing to do with what Noel has a whim to do. Fans react with confusion and hurt when Noel says things like this. You should be prepared of his game. Tony McCarroll even made a book about Noel and his complex for truth and tendency to fight with the world."

“Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it”.
(millionaire "God" Noel Gallagher)

it seems that man's got some brains problem... once again: he forgot where he comes from...



"Wow and people are still defending Noel? Noel fanboyism to a whole new level".

"Where do you get the idea that Noel appreciates his fans after that comment? I don't see it. I definitely don't see it from the concerts he gives either. And I honestly don't think it's about the music anymore for Noel. It's about the MONEY, period. Is it any wonder he didn't play the Olympics? He couldn't be arsed because he simply wasn't going to get paid for it! His attitude and work ethic since the breakup of Oasis has been frankly disgusting in my opinion.
I for one do care about his attitude toward his fans. I'll say it again. He wouldln't be where he is today without his fans. When I was younger, it may have been more about the music for me too but now that I've gotten older, I've gotten wiser. Noel should have gotten wiser too. THINK before you speak, Noel. At least act like you still care. I recently pre-ordered his *special limited edition* dvd from his website and now I'm just thinking about cancelling my order because I have such a sour taste in my mouth.
Liam was and always will be the heart and soul of Oasis. And now we all seeing why."

and Noel "the brains behind the band", without a brain.
Liam shows he cares and when he performs in a small venue, it's like a stadium. My grandmother had more energy than Noel Gallagher the old depressed fake man.

"Yet another example of why I have always preferred Liam, and always felt that his position was overlooked. Sad really.."

"When August 29, 2009 first came down, my first thought was, "Oh, poor Noel--he couldn't put up with Liam's behavior any more." Three years later, I think, "Poor Liam--HOWEVER did he put up with that mean little old troll all those years?"
Time and the truth always unfold eventually. Now we all know it: Noel was getting old and lazy. He couldn't admit it (like a real man would), so he set a trap for his dumb brother in Paris, manipulating him like he does his family, his fans, and everyone else in his life.
It was Liam who went out on a wire with nothing but his throat, kept his integrity, ans showed his courage. The rest of the band knew who had the heart and soul--and who was a conniving creep.

He went at it as though he was in Madison Square Garden, ended the gig soaked to the bone with his own sweat and he was white as a ghost, He sat down on the drum riser for a second, took a long gulp of bottle water, then shook himself like a dog and got back up there in front of that mic.

Noel Gallagher biggest idiot ever +fans reactions


CARDIFF - Ladies and gentlemen, if you don't know him personally, here is "God" Noel Gallagher, from Liam's tweet: “Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it”... now you have the final proof (as if it was necessary) that Noel Gallagher is the biggest idiot ever.
"Godlike genius", as his NME elected him... without people voting...
It's the worst sentence I've ever heard... and I've never been one of those who want to "save Africa", etc.
Is it an idiomatic sentence, or more probably an idiotic sentence...
As you're learning to use internet and loving YouTube, I hope you're reading here: Noel Gallagher, Sir, you suck.

about the Oasis reunion... and of course he even blamed Liam “Well, he shouldn’t have fucking tried to sue me, should he?”
Noel is a media darling and he feels allowed to say anything, insulting everyone, even his own fans who made him rich.
Luckily for him, I'm not one of his fans, or he would have that "something really bad to happen" he wished for himself...
This can't be accepted anymore, he must pay for this, it's too much. A celebrity as him can't be an example for anyone. This should make him unpopular even among his fans... of course it won't, 'cause they have teenage fan brains.
Nothing really new from one who even moaned when he played for a charity gig, saying he was doing it "for the money". This new one goes down there with his wishing Blur "to catch AIDS and die", "bigger than the Beatles", etc. when he was using drugs... and he's not even using them now... (they clearly damaged his brain). But he's still getting drunk at 45 years old, father of 3 children...
Now I wanna see if ALL the websites (cuisine websites too) are going to publish this sentence he said, as they publish every single bullshit he says, of course they won't now, as for all the negative things he says.

"So what would we be doing it for? For the fans? No-one ever gave a shit about the fans in that band."
As always, he speaks about Oasis as if he was Oasis. YOU never gave a shit about the fans.

His blinded fans, disappointed, are even wondering why the millionaire Noel always repeats he wants no Oasis reunion and there won't be any reunion in 2015... That is not even true 'cause Noel's too "interested in money only"... It's one of Noel's strategies to sell his one and only, "unique" album (made of old songs, not all written by him, as his imaginary friend Gem said), and it's still selling (the people buying must be really stupid) and of course he repeats to the media there won't be a second one. If they support him, the liar, the fake man, buy his albums, go to his concerts, buy his useless shite copied merchandise so he can buy other houses, make him successful (and then he even insults them 'cause they just want an autograph or a photo, or because they're fat), etc. of course there won't be any reunion.

And he now said that of course oh the solo career is so hard in comparison to Oasis... nice, such a pity that he had just said the opposite... that oh it's so difficult to explain to Liam how to sing (as if Noel was a singer... yes, in his dreams), blah blah... typical double-faced Noel Gallagher.
Classic Noel, jealous of Liam's "Most Working Artist" (Oasis foundation, Pretty Green foundation, Beady Eye foundation, and cinema soon, In 1 Productions).

If I was Noel (luckily I'm not), I'd say:
I wouldn't give money to Noel, not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it.
Shame on you Noel Gallagher, may something really bad happen to you. You wished that.

real fans:

"Wow and people are still defending Noel? Noel fanboyism to a whole new level".

"Where do you get the idea that Noel appreciates his fans after that comment? I don't see it. I definitely don't see it from the concerts he gives either. And I honestly don't think it's about the music anymore for Noel. It's about the MONEY, period. Is it any wonder he didn't play the Olympics? He couldn't be arsed because he simply wasn't going to get paid for it! His attitude and work ethic since the breakup of Oasis has been frankly disgusting in my opinion.
I for one do care about his attitude toward his fans. I'll say it again. He wouldln't be where he is today without his fans. When I was younger, it may have been more about the music for me too but now that I've gotten older, I've gotten wiser. Noel should have gotten wiser too. THINK before you speak, Noel. At least act like you still care. I recently pre-ordered his *special limited edition* dvd from his website and now I'm just thinking about cancelling my order because I have such a sour taste in my mouth.
Liam was and always will be the heart and soul of Oasis. And now we all seeing why."

and Noel "the brains behind the band", without a brain.
Liam shows he cares and when he performs in a small venue, it's like a stadium. My grandmother had more energy than Noel Gallagher the old depressed fake man.

"Yet another example of why I have always preferred Liam, and always felt that his position was overlooked. Sad really.."

"When August 29, 2009 first came down, my first thought was, "Oh, poor Noel--he couldn't put up with Liam's behavior any more." Three years later, I think, "Poor Liam--HOWEVER did he put up with that mean little old troll all those years?"

the return of Creation

CARDIFF - Alan McGee has indicated that he might revive the legendary Creation label in the near future.
The record company gifted the world the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals, Primal Scream, Oasis and My Bloody Valentine.
McGee founded Creation in 1983, but the label was wound up in 1999.
Whether it’s as Creation Records or another name is yet to be decided, but the label set up is all there and more importantly the will power to do something.
The exec said: "Since spending the summer helping curate Tokyo Rocks for next year it’s made me realise I do still love it! It was when I was flying back from Japan with the Primals that started me loving it again.
I have to finish the edit to my film Kubricks and deliver the book I have signed up for but to be honest I am now seriously thinking about restarting Creation or maybe call it something else if I can find the right people at a label to work with. Music needs a kick in the balls and I have got the music buzz back again after working on Tokyo Rocks.."
McGee previously indicated a return to the record business was on his mind in May, when he revealed that investors in Japan wanted to fund him for some A&R work.
McGee famously quit the music industry after winding down his last label, Poptones, in 2007.

Monza 2012: McLaren front row


MONZA - Beady Eye's Different gear, still speeding. For Noel Gallagher, driving things are out of this world... he doesn't even have a driving license. Of course for the media he drives, even in the videos. Perfect for the fake he is.
"Jenson Button is a driver"... thanks God Noel, we didn't know. We would be lost without you.
(when met him with illuminati Branson back from Egypt... illuminati stuff, defo out of this world)
More photos and videos to add soon.


Pretty Green fan Lewisella :) ...the silver sun strikes @ the temple of speed: McLaren pole position and front row for today, 1st & 2nd for the Oasis fans. 
‎0:57 on the podium: "history is made but the future is unwritten", 1:08 Button, ‎1:12 Italian McLaren pr Silvia, 2:38 Hamilton, 3:08 we gave him skittles :), 4:04 Jenson, 4:19 Schumacher, 5:06 Alonso, 5:37 Lewis, 8:11 broken Ferrari, 9:34 McLaren pit stop, 12:00 McLaren hits a mechanic :), 12:31 Vettel off track (one of 4 times), 13:44 Pavarotti introduces Monza history, 14:44 Milan 


"Britalian" Paul Di Resta


90th anniversary for the old circuit (1922-2012)

Monza is one of the most iconic racetracks in the world. Built in 1922 (90th anniversary this year) in a royal park north of Milan, the circuit is an eclectic mix of old and new: the crumbling banking that formed part of the original layout still lies adjacent to the modern racetrack, which is the fastest of the 2012 season.
The vociferous Italian fans, known colloquially as the Tifosi, are sure to give every team a lot of support during this, the last European race of the 2012 season. Neither Lewis nor Jenson has previously won at Monza, although Jenson has finished second in each of the past three races at the track.


‎"...reminds me of fashion, football, fantastic food and the fans"
"it's set in amazing city of Milan which provides a beautiful backdrop with the Duomo... I hear it's good for shopping too, shame we don't have time"

Bradley Wiggins: what a gentleman Liam

LONDON - Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher was on hand to present Olympic hero Bradley Wiggins with the Lifetime Achievement award at the GQ Awards in London last night.
Wiggins said: "It means a lot to be presented with this award from Liam. I grew up with Oasis. What a night at GQ awards and Liam what a gent, cheers".

Introducing the award Liam said: "Not since Phil Daniels in Quadrophenia has a man looked so cool on a set of wheels – Bradley Wiggins."

Reigniting an interest in the Mod look it was no surprise to see Wiggins refreshing his wardrobe in the Pretty Green Manchester store last week.
Since his Gold win at the Olympics and being the only Brit in History to win the Tour De France, Wiggins has become somewhat of a style icon and man of the moment.

The UK’s Olympians and Paralympians have marked “a year to remember”. Stars including Sir Chris Hoy, Louis Smith, Mo Farah and Jody Cundy came on stage to accept the Team award.
Other awards saw Homeland star Damian Lewis named TV Personality of the year and Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen named best comedian. Gary Barlow was given the Outstanding Achievement award, while Michael Fassbender was named Actor of the year.
U2 frontman Bono presented the Inspiration award to Sir Salman Rushdie, and Sir Tom Jones picked up the Legend award at the ceremony. He we presented with the award – and a pair of knickers – by Grace Jones with the Welsh veteran joking: “Thank you, us Jones’ have to stick together.”
US film producer Harvey Weinstein gave the Editor’s Special award to James Corden, while Thor star Chris Hemsworth was presented with the International Breakthrough award by fellow Australian Kylie Minogue.
Other stars at the event (@ Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, central London): Robbie Williams and his heavily pregnant wife Ayda Field, Ronan Keating, Victoria Pendleton, new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe, Tinie Tempah (Best Solo Artist), Jessie J, Lana Del Rey, etc.
Milan's Dolce & Gabbana won the Designers award (presented by Monica Bellucci), Boris Johnson won the Politician one.
It's a honour that among so many celebrities, all the jealous comments are for one person only... says a lot about the legend he is.

poor victim Noel Gallagher could be killed

JERSEY - A psychologist still needed: paranoid Noel Gallagher is always and still scared that some mad fan kills him, as John Lennon.
It's ridiculous, there are thousands of celebrities and almost never happened.
It's the originary reason why he used to refuse autographs and didn't want to be in photos with fans. He now accepts but moans about it, even insulting his own fans.
The person telling him to accept must be the same one taking care of his attitude in public... mission: NOT complete.
By the way: Noel Gallagher who? a celebrity? nah they can't kill him.
I hope they don't... can you imagine: he's already GOD, if they killed him he'd become the creator of God... they'd idolise him even more.
If I was a mad fan (I am), I'd kill him JUST BECAUSE he shows to be scared, he's silly.
In fact, they always attacked him onstage (and not Liam).
USA are sometimes quite dangerous and time ago there was Liam and Tony hearing gun shots outside a bar and someone killed a man, while they were inside waiting for Noel arriving in a few minutes, and Liam said: they've shot our Noel ! lol

attack to the jinx, poor victim Noel Gallagher the media darling

when British tabloids don't know what to write (as always):

A potentially deadly spider with threatening green fangs gave rocker (?) Noel Gallagher’s crew a scare wh
en it sprung from one of his flight cases in the lead up to a gig. The former Oasis frontman (?! it was called LIAM... who was also the founder of the band and gave the name Oasis) was headlining with his new band (?! he said it's NOT a band... and it's OLD, dying in November) High Flying Birds at Jersey Live Music Festival when the chaos unfolded backstage on Sunday, ahead of his performance. The mystery black and green arachnid, which has yet to be identified, was discovered by crew members unpacking the singer’s flight cases. Organisers quickly caught it in a container but were so concerned the fanged spider was dangerous that they quarantined an area back stage for twenty minutes. The rock star (?! he just said rock stars don't exist anymore), whose Oasis hits include Don't Look Back in Anger - has been touring recently in exotic places including South America and Asia as well as closer to home in Europe, sparking fears of where it could have come from.
Jersey Live spokeswoman, Jayne Houghton, said: 'The Jersey crew members were unpacking Noel’s flight cases when a huge black spider with green fangs came out with a flourish.
'Staff immediately set about catching the spider and an area backstage had to be quarantined for nearly twenty minutes.
'Luckily there were members of Durrells Wildlife Conservation Trust at the festival who kindly took the spider away for analysis.
Noel had not arrived at the gig and so was blissfully unaware of the panic the spider caused.'
Twelve animal experts from Durrells Wildlife and Conservation Project had by chance been collecting drinks cans to raise money for charity when they were summoned backstage.
Sarah Nugent, from the conservation project based in Jersey, said: 'We are having the spider analysed at the minute.
'We found out that the crew had been to most parts of the world during their tour, including Argentina and Japan.
'But Noel has also been to places like Chelmsford, so the spider could have hitched its ride at any point, or simply walked in from a nearby field here in Jersey.'
Sarah added: 'We were really lucky because we got taken back stage, which was great for us, and the crew had already put the spider in a plastic container.
'It was the size of a 50p piece with green fangs. We used the teams laptop to see if we could Google what the spider was.
'There are hundreds of thousands of species of spider worldwide so it is going to be a difficult one to decipher.'
Noel Gallagher headlined at the annual festival at the Royal Jersey Showground in Trinity, Jersey, yesterday with his Manchester-based (?!? they're not from Manchester) rock band (?!? piano bar cabaret band) High Flying Birds, which formed last year.
(and is disbanding in 2 months)
