Beady Eye @ Glastonbury

GLASTONBURY - More videos and photos of revellers to add soon (the gig got 4 stars out of 5). Now all the websites are writing about the "u-turn" by Liam about playing @ Glastonbury festival, and of course they never published anything about a thousand u-turns (read: lies) by the media darling Noel, you can see some down on the right column here.
Beady Eye both live (Liam's voice now got better) and on the album are better than Oasis in those final years, when they weren't good at Glastonbury too (2004). I admit it: both for Liam's voice (I always say when there's something wrong about him - but it's rare :) -  Noel's fans never admit anything just like Noel, they're not credible) and Oasis weren't so good as they used to be also because of many songs by Noel. I also didn't agree with Liam when he talked about Beady Eye first album (it was better than he said), or about sacking Mancini (it was right to sack him).
Beady Eye still get the interest even from people hating them... Since they're free from the media darling Noel, they also get all kinds of insults.
Haters are now even moaning because Liam was wearing sunglasses ahaha for your info: you wear them to be cool (something they can't understand) and because of the light, not only the sun. He's wearing them @ night gigs too. Beady Eye were great so haters don't know what other bullshit to say (as always).
"I didn't think Liam would be up this early in the morning. I bet he's not even been to bed yet." ahaha for your info, he's got a family with sons and gets up at 5 for jogging in the park and then takes the kids to school.
Now it's even becoming Liam's fault it wasn't a "secret gig"... who said it was secret? themselves, the media, the fucking journalists

R.I.P. Stefano Borgonovo

GIUSSANO - Spain vs Italy tonight will wear black armbands.
Message from Oasis' friend Beckham: "Sad to hear about the passing away of former AC Milan striker, Stefano Borgonovo. I was fortunate enough to meet him, an incredible person. My thoughts are with his family at this time."
Mario Balotelli: "Ciao la tua forza è un insegnamento di vita per tutti. Sarai sempre con me. Con noi! Addio."
[= bye, your strength is a teaching of life for everybody. You'll always be with me. With us! farewell]
ex AC Milan player, I remember him well in the 80s-90s, died for the "footballers disease" (and not only), the ALS amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aged 49 :( (he was already a grandfather)
He leaves wife and 4 children

BE 13th&14th positive reviews

WELLINGTON - Other positive reviews:

After the ill-conceived Different Gear Still Speeding that was Beady Eye's debut, Liam Gallagher has finally found his wings post Oasis.
And boy does he soar on an album that's as sonically adventurous as it is full of sneering, snappy and sharp Brit rockers such as Flick Of The Finger, Second Bite of The Apple and Soon Come Tomorrow.
The swaggering and rather clever Don't Brother Me suggests lyrically it's a direct response to estranged brother Noel's The Death of You & Me - "Don't brother me when you're done/I'm sick of all your lying/scheming and crying" - but it does offer a Lennon-ish olive branch - "Come on now give peace a chance/take my hand be a man".
I'm Just Saying roars with confidence as if Gallagher knows his time is still now.

rating: 5 stars / 5

Andrà a finire che ci dovremo ricredere. Pensavamo che Liam Gallagher fosse l'impresentabile, quello che voleva diventare grande senza essere grande. Invece Dave Sitek, mente formidabile dei Tv On The Radio e produttore di questo disco dei Beady Eye, ora se ne vien fuori dicendo che Liam ha delle capacità vocali incredibili e che con lui basta accendere il microfono e tutto va alla grande. Aggiungiamo che lo stesso Liam ha rivelato che, a differenza degli anni '90, ora si immerge nel lavoro con lucidità, e forse è questa la ragione della sorprendente evoluzione della band: l'incontro con Sitek ha liberato le doti nascoste di Liam. Di più, ha dato a Gem Archer, Andy Bell e Chris Sharrock una base solida su cui far crescere il suono della band. Negli Oasis, quando Noel azzeccava la melodia [o quando la copiava] le canzoni diventavano indimenticabili, tutte le altre erano riempitivi. In BE, Liam non ne sbaglia una, che sia quella di Face The Crowd in cui torna a essere l'aspirante cantante di una cover band dei Beatles, a quella del primo singolo Second Bite of the Apple, o i tre pezzi in sequenza di puro britpop Iz Rite, I'm Just Saying e Don't Brother Me. Non è poco. Le imperfezioni da teppista ci sono ancora: vocali aperte e trascinate al limite, intonazione fissa sul modello John Lennon-Johnny Rotten (John Lydon), ma si sente che c'è qualcosa dietro. Un'intenzione adulta, contemporanea, matura: tutte parole finora sconosciute per Liam. Sitek lo prende in ostaggio con l'intenzione forse di rispondere all'eterna domanda: "Cosa avrebbero fatto i Beatles con un computer e Pro Tools?" Ecco il punto, il mondo elettrico di Sitek è sperimentale e sorprendente e si fonde alla grande con l'approccio viscerale di Liam. Non è mai troppo tardi per diventare grandi.

Noel Gallagher's idol, the betrayer

MILAN - Carlos Tevez joined Juventus from Manchester City, despite he gave his "word of honor" he would have joined AC Milan...
Instead of the club that most won in football history (AC Milan, 18 international trophies), he chose the club that most cheated in football history... Juventus (they play with 12 players, referee included). These are facts.
He could only be Noel Gallagher's idol (media darling Noel, telling a thousand lies, plays with the help of the media).
Now everybody's laughing because AC chief Galliani wanted to buy him (but recently he didn't say he was going to buy him... we first have to sell Robinho and Boateng). A few months ago Berlusconi said he doesn't like him (and he's rarely wrong about football... decisions that often seemed wrong, later turned out to be right, and even the same AC fans protesting had to change their mind about those decisions).
Sure he's a good player but... are we sure we lost someone important?
he scored only 15 goals in 2 years... he didn't play a lot the other year, but seems like his career is getting worse... in fact, he's almost 30 years old next season. In recent times, Juventus is usually buying all the strikers who score a few goals. Sure he's not enough to win the Champions League, that is their target. And Tevez never helped City so much to do well in Europe.
Besides, he never played in the Italian Serie A league, that is quite different from the Premier League. Nowadays, English football is more charming, but defenses are weak compared to the Italian ones, where you can see less goals, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a worse football but more tactical (even Messi would probably score the half he scores in Spain). Historically, many players coming from UK to Italy, they don't do a lot.
Besides, it's quite meaningful that almost nobody tried to sign him up, and City didn't do anything to keep him, despite he's an idol for the their fans. Sounds like a discard... in Italian "scarto", Scartos Tevez.
And not to mention his high wages... they're the highest in the current Juventus club. Also, his contract was about to expire in 6 months... so Juve is paying 12 millions+wages for a few months.
In times like these, it's better to spend money for someone who's really worth.
There's even more: his behaviour. Arguing with managers, refusing to play, etc. Last year he escaped to Argentina and Brazil, stayed for months and didn't want to come back. Also saying that soon he would've joined his favourite club again, Boca Juniors. Recently, he even had to do community works in England, as punishment for the driving license issue (also, Noel Gallagher driving in his videos without a driving license).
Tevez probably doesn't know Turin is a city boring as fuck (well maybe not less than Manchester), oh just like Noel's songs... Tevez surely would've had much more fun in Milan...that is typical of South-American players.
He often had problems with weight... like Maradona. We have to see if he's got some motivation, too.
Also, it's clear Tevez is at least the THIRD choice for Juventus, as they wanted Higuain and Suarez.
In a way, we can also be happy, as all this will force Milan to buy a REALLY good player.

La Juve compra Tevez e arriva a Malpensa... si vede che a Torino non hanno ancora l'aeroporto, Fassino deve ancora costruirlo.
Partendo aveva 29 anni, arrivato ne ha 31... Gli hanno dato addirittura la maglia numero 10 di Del Piero per la prima volta.
L'imbecille Chirico che non capisce una mazza di calcio, fa le buffonate come quando ballava per Felipe Melo...
Questa cosa di già tutto fatto con Tevez... è abbastanza irregolare, visto che il mercato inizia il 1° luglio. Vabbè che la Juve & i regolamenti sono come i gusti sessuali di Rocco Siffredi & quelli di Alfonso Signorini...

Sharrock interview: BE are never off

WINDSOR (Australia) - An interview with the drummer... was it possible with Noel Hitler Gallagher? not really.
this is the live setlist I would do for the gigs, a few changes:
Flick of the finger, Two of a kind, Evil eye, Four letter word, Soul love, Second bite of the apple, Iz rite, Off at the next exit, Rock'n'roll star, World's not set in stone, I'm just saying, Morning glory, Soon come tomorrow, The roller (or The beat goes on / Morning son), Start anew,
+encore: Bring the light, In the bubble with a bullet
(+one of 24 Oasis songs not by Noel=not by the Griffiths)

According to drummer Chris Sharrock, it was time for a change. Enter TV On The Radio guitarist and trailblazing indie producer, Dave Sitek.
“We didn’t really know much about him,” Sharrock says. “His name was put to us, as in, you know, this guy could be interested.”
Sitek is best known for his production work with hip New Yorkers Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He’s also worked with Foals, Liars and Santigold, and so it would be fair to say, at least on paper, Dave Sitek and Beady Eye have little in common.
“We thought we’d meet him and check him out,” Sharrock continues. “Well, actually we kind of met him 20 minutes before we started recording. And we didn’t really listen to anything he’d done before because we didn’t wanna go in with any … if he’d done something that we didn’t like, you know, it would have been all over.”
Unsurprisingly, working with the experimentally-minded Sitek was vastly different to making their debut.
“He challenged us more,” Sharrock explains. “He said, ‘here you are guys, what about this?’ and ‘why don’t you try that?’”
According to Sharrock, Different Gear Still Speeding producer Steve Lillywhite “didn’t stick it out to the end anyway”, and left the band “running around like headless chickens”. On the other hand, Sitek became like Beady Eye’s “fifth member”.
“He had his little corner of the studio going on and we had our corner. We’d meet in the middle over the coffee machine.”
In the lead-up to the release of this album, Liam Gallagher was typically bold. BE, he said, was the album Oasis should have made after their mega-selling magnum opus, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
In production terms, at least, he’s right. BE is the sound a band freed from the shackles of commercial expectations – out of their comfort zone, but loving it.
Take the futuristic album opener, Flick Of The Finger, with its aggressive horns, thumping Velvet Underground-like drums, and seize-the-moment lyricism. The same goes for the modern-sounding Soul Love, a dark, brooding song Oasis would never have recorded in their pomp. That sense of musical adventure is further explored on spacey tracks like Don’t Brother Me and the closing ballad, Start Anew.
Essentially, BE showcases a band hungry to carve out their own creative path, an opportunity afforded to them by the departure of Noel.
“Everyone has to step up and bring more songs in as opposed to just learning them,” Sharrock says. “There’s a lot of creativity going on, we’re always jamming. We’ve got three or four new tunes already – they’re very rough sort of jams but there’s something there. There’s three writers in the band so there’s never a shortage of songs.”
Sharrock continues: “After the last gig on the last tour we said, ‘right we’re gonna have three months off’. After about a week and a half everyone was like, ‘should we do something, should we get together?’ We can never leave it alone for too long, this is just what we do.”
Their unshakable enthusiasm is impressive given that, for part of 2011, the band was like a “rudderless ship”.

“The last management [NOEL's same management] bailed in the middle of that tour,” Sharrock explains. “We went a couple of weeks without management. It was a shit thing to do but I didn’t really look at them as management anyway. They were just people who booked my cab and train. There was no love lost for me.”

Either way, things are well truly back on track now. The band is getting set to hit the road for a string of UK shows and festivals. Having missed Australia on their previous world tour (and on the last Oasis tour - wondering why, eh NOEL? - after all his insults to the Australians), Sharrock confirms that the band is “definitely” coming here this time around.

Not only that, they’ll coming with a couple of Oasis songs up their sleeves – they’ve been rehearsing Morning Glory and Rock ‘n’ Roll Star – and with new touring bassist and former Kasabian member Jay Mehler.
“He’s a great guy,” Sharrock says. “We were sorry to lose Jeff [Wootton] because he was kind of there from the start, but Jay’s doing a great job. We know him anyway, we’ve known him a few years through Kasabian and it’s great having him around.”
Meanwhile, with the album and tour cycle in full swing, Liam has been whipping up a storm in the British tabloids. Notable stories include his claim he could’ve written Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” in an hour, and reports he tried to ride a dog during a particularly boozy night at the pub (another fake story, many photos but no photo with a dog).
“I wasn’t with him that night but I heard him talking about it,” Sharrock says, already laughing. “He was like, ‘fuckin’ hell this is a load of bollocks. It wasn’t a dog, it was a pig’. You never know with him. You never stop laughing, laughing or crying.”
And as for the constant ‘will they, won’t they?’ Oasis reformation rumours, Sharrock says he’s not the man with the answer.
“I’m kind of last on the list,” he laughs. “I’ll go with the flow. We never speak about it and we never think about it amongst ourselves. Especially me, it’s got nothing really to do with me.” But if they’re getting back together, I’m available.”
Beady Eye might always be known as Oasis minus Noel Gallagher, but as they’re now proving, that needn’t be a disadvantage. Instead, it can be an exciting point of difference.

referee admits 1 mistake. They're 4

SALVADOR DE BAHIA - Brazil is ready for the Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
Neymar already tested a sport : diving.

1) The referee Ravshan Irmatov (from Uzbekistan... do they know what is football?) admitted only one of at least 4 mistakes, pay attention which one: the second goal by Italy, he whistled for a penalty but conceded the goal...
whistling, it would have been a red card for the Brazilian player but the referee "saved" him

2) still during the game Brazil-Italy (playing without Pirlo and De Rossi), another penalty for Italy on Balotelli not given... (when we deserved a 3-3).
And now it's 4 penalties not conceded (2 vs Mexico, 1 vs Japan). Time to stop, referees. At least in time for the World Cup next year...

3) first goal, by Dante, in offside... as the fourth goal by Fred too, offside for a few centimetres

4) the goal from a free kick by Neymar is from a non-existent foul

...well done referees. Maybe he was afraid of the situation out of the stadium...
The teams were both qualified already, but now we have to play vs Spain, when we could have more chances to play the final, if it was Uruguay in the semifinal. Playing at home, Brazil could have won vs Spain.
Great Mario, super assist and a mega shot. The Confederations Cup is over for Montolivo, Abate (bad foul by Neymar and yellow card), Pirlo and Balotelli.

After this game, Brazil played vs Uruguay and Neymar ridiculed himself diving in a comic scene.
He's officially a diver.

oh diving...

ignorant Fat Dancer replies

LONDON - The fat dancer answered back...
"I’ve heard Second Bite Of The Apple, I don’t know why nobody said anything. When you listen you think, ‘Please put a chorus in — it will be brilliant.’ They are not going to have a character brave enough to tell Liam that.”
... the song is not by Liam but Gem... Robbie at least inform yourself before.
He sounds like a fan of Noel, of the series "Liam copied the Roller!!!!!!!!!!!!"'s by Gem... asshole.
In fact, just before this: "Robbie’s full of praise for Noel these days — he thinks Beady Eye would succeed if he was on board. He added: “They are missing The General."
It seems like he doesn't know what to say. And, I think there is a chorus in Second Bite Of The Apple... And if there wasn't... who cares? it would make the song even more special, different.
"The Take That star has retaliated by saying he wished Beady Eye’s music was as good as Liam’s chat. Robbie Williams said: “The interviews are better than the records at the minute."
...he clearly didn't listen to the album, that even haters liked.

Robbie's opinions really suck, now it's clear it's NOEL who needs a band like Beady Eye, and not the other way round.

Meanwhile, Noel is supporting Lisa's charity, seems like he's doing it because she hates Liam...

BeadyEye @Camden Centre, who needs Noel?

LONDON - "Beady Eye are rock'n'roll stars - Liam is rocking his Pretty Green clobber and somehow keeps his parka jacket zipped up right to the top. So cool he defies heat. Who needs Noel when Beady Eye's gigs are this good?" (MTV, rating 5/5 stars). These songs sound just like Oasis, Noel could only add the backing vocals...
No Bonehead this time as @ gig in Manchester, but Holly Willoughby and Kate Thornton.

Beady Eye @ Ritz iz rite

MANCHESTER - Not really like Noel's sad covers... THIS is Oasis. Noel's butthurt fans are clicking on dislike ahahaha. Gem said: “I’m sure a lot of fans would want to hear them. Hung In A Bad Place would be a good one live, as would The Meaning Of Soul. There’s even stuff like Liam’s Boy With The Blues that Oasis never played live which I think would work.” (yeah top tune!)
First official gig of the new tour, more to add soon.
setlist: Flick of the finger, Face the crowd, Millionaire, Four letter word, Soul love, Second bite of the apple, Iz rite, Shine a light, Rock'n'roll star, Don't brother me, I'm just saying, Morning glory (Liam dedicated the Oasis songs to Bonehead, he was there), Soon come tomorrow, The roller, Start anew, +encore: Bring the light, Wigwam

football song :). Meanwhile @ Confederations Cup, Japan-Italy 3-4: absurd penalty given against Italy, as the 2 penalties not given vs Mexico. Classic anti-Italian referees. Another goal by Balotelli and after Hernandez another Manchester United player, Kagawa (in Italian it means "he shitted" ahaha)

good version

Liam's class @ The Voice

great Liam's performance with Beady Eye @ The Voice. This is a breakthru for the band. Also, cool as fuck and a stage presence Noel will never have. The acoustics @ Jools Holland were not good, too low microphone (all the haters are referring to that show) so he had to shout like @ Noel's times, when the bastard was always keeping a too low volume compared to the instruments.
Still non-fans disliked their decision to perform there, when even Oasis were @ Top of the Pops, etc.  it was about playing to millions of people

Beady Eye @ HMV Glasgow

GLASGOW - acoustic live. “The funniest thing was this bloke who asked me what aftershave I was wearing. He said, ‘I’m not a queer or anything, but let me tell you this. You smell delightful. You smell fucking delicious’. It freaked me out, man. I thought, ‘Has the world gone mad? There’s a Glaswegian bloke who looks hard as nails asking me what aftershave I’m wearing’.”

another interview with Andy

SYDNEY - As anticipated. Beady Eye have returned with their new album, BE. The record sees Liam Gallagher and his ex-Oasis cohorts Gem Archer, Chris Sharrock and Andy Bell pursuing different sonic terrain to the swaggering rockers of their first outing. With the aid of TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek on production duties, their second outing is a spacier, more adventurous affair.
When I reach guitarist Andy Bell he is a laid back mood and in his softly-spoken Oxford accent talks passionately about how Dave Sitek helped Beady Eye find their new sound, learning the sitar and those ever-present Oasis reunion rumours.

On a scale of one to 10, how surreal was it to play the Olympic closing ceremony last year?

Oh, it was brilliant. It was a 10, without a doubt. It’s just something that, when you get the chance to do it, you’d be insane to turn it down. The experience of it was brilliant and it was a really, really funny day out as well. There was one bit where we were walking from our dressing room to the stage and the acts and crowds of extras that we were passing as we were going by was just like being inside some, I don’t know, Liberace’s acid trip or something. There were troops of Indian Maharajas riding elephants, then you’d have break-dancers and the Spice Girls would be passing. Basically all the bits and pieces from all the other acts were all milling around through these backstage areas as we walked through. It was a really insane but very enjoyable moment; even more so because I was miming so I didn’t have to do anything really. I just stood there and pretend to play guitar. Liam had to sing live though.

What was the recording process like for BE; how long did you spend in the studio?

We only had five weeks booked with Dave Sitek but we worked fast and we finished 18 songs. We did that in four weeks. In the last week we basically left Dave and his assistant to get on with what they were doing and we kind of chilled.
We recorded it in a studio in Richmond, about an hour from London, which is called State Of The Ark. It’s a private studio owned by a successful songwriter who wrote a lot of hits for Tina Turner and Cliff Richard. His name’s Terry Britten. [Ed: Britton was a member of Australian band The Twilights with Glenn Shorrock in the 1960s].He’s an interesting guy. Obviously he doesn’t have to work anymore, he’s got this studio and he just kind of potters around. He used to always bring in weird pedals for me to try out. Little prototypes of things. He’s working on a really cool idea for a stereo guitar where half the strings go through to half the amplifier and half go through to the other side. I’ve ordered one.

That must have appealed to the shoegazer in you?

Totally man. Anything that makes guitars sound weirder.

How does Beady Eye work in terms of song writing? So you, Gem and Liam work on the songs then bring them to one another or is it more collaborative?
It’s slowly changing but basically we bring them in. I’ll explain how it works and this has been the same for both albums. After the Oasis break-up, we were back in a room working on new music weeks after we’d split because that’s all we really knew how to do. We went straight into demoing mode because I think we were a bit unsure how to deal with it all. We hit on this formula where Liam would bring a song and we’d work on that for a week or so; this was in Gem’s home studio. We’d work on Liam’s song, finish everything that needs finishing with it, record a demo and then the next week we’d move on to mine or Gem’s and we’d go round in that same order. So you’re more or less bringing something in to polish up, that you’re ready to work on with the band.
That’s the formula we used on both albums but then we kind of changed it with this new one, slightly towards the end. We were just finishing up and we knew we had a set number of days with Dave left and Liam had a great burst of inspiration where he came out with three songs at once, which were Soul Love, Evil Eye and one more. We also hadn’t finished Flick Of The Finger, which was an instrumental demo that we had knocking about years before called Velvet Building, which had no words, no actual song or anything. It was just the riff with Liam singing over it. We really liked it and Liam suggested that me and Gem finish it off for him. So working on Flick Of The Finger was the first time that we’ve taken a song from that little start until completion. It was a true collaboration between the three of us.

The tracks on BE tend to have a bit more space to them as opposed to the full-on rock ‘n’ roll of the first album. Was it a case of using the studio more or messing with arrangements?

I’d credit that as probably the biggest contribution Dave Sitek [brought] to what we do. I think in the past, we’ve kind of seen records as places to just fill every corner with dense sound and it’s taken Dave to make us question that by saying , “How about having a section where almost nothing happens, almost nothing changes and you just have some time to think or just enjoy the moment?” When you take that thought and run with it then you get some of the moments on this album, which are really the best bits. The end of Don’t Brother Me, the end of Soul Love, some of the middle sections of songs kind of seem to open out. It’s quite freeing to realise you can do that. It was really good and I credit Dave for that, without a doubt. He brought that in.

Would you it be fair to say that, musically and lyrically, BE is a far more introverted record than Different Gear Still Speeding?

Yeah, definitely. Again, the production brings that out because it does feature the voice front and centre and some of those tunes that have the more introspective subject matter are now sonically way more interesting than they could have been. They’re the ones you’re drawn to. Like Don’t Brother Me, which was an acoustic tune originally and that became this cosmic epic. Conversely, as song like Ballroom Figured we had a band arrangement for that and it was brought down to guitar and voice which gave it that intimacy.

Is that you playing sitar at the end of Don’t Brother Me?

Yeah, it is. I bought one for the first album because we used it on Millionaire. In true Brian Jones fashion, I bought the thing in the morning and put the overdub on it about an hour later. I tuned it all to the right notes and then put it away for the next two years and then brought it out for this outro. One day I want to do the whole George Harrison thing and go to India and learn how to play it properly. It’s fairly hard with the sitar to tune it to the song you’re doing and pick out some notes that sound good but I’d like to be decent at it someday.

It seems like something people dedicate their lives to learning.

It’s amazing. I’ve seen films of Ravi [Shankar] teaching George to play it. I think the timing’s really important in Indian music. It’s always really odd counts per bar. There’s a formula that they have to learn so it’s kind of like remember a bank statement or something. It’s counting to five, then it’s counting to three, then it’s counting to seven. You’re basically playing music to a formula, a very complicated formula. When you do it right, it sounds great. If everyone’s doing the same thing; when you have a tabla layer playing at the same time, it’s really good.

Given that it’s only been four years since Oasis split, do you find the continuing press about a possible reunion detracts and distracts from what you’re doing now?

It doesn’t really bother me. All it really says to me is that people still care about Oasis in the same way that I do occasionally get asked about Ride as well; about whether we’ll reunite. To me, I kind of put it in the same category as things I would like to happen. I’ve got no problem doing it at all. If the Oasis thing came up, I’d be there like a shot but it’s something that relies on Noel and Liam. I don’t know if it’s likely to happen in this millennium really.

What about Ride then?

Similar deal really. Ride is more like something that’s on the backburner where all of us have said “Yeah, that’d be really nice to do one day”, but we’re all really busy. We’ve all got lots of things going on – music and other things. It’s something that I don’t wanna leave forever. I think right now I’ve got unfinished business to work out with Beady Eye and we have to get to a certain point before I’d consider taking a bit of time off from it. I just think it’s not that time right now. We’ve got a lot going on and we’re fully committed to it.

Is part of that unfinished business coming to Australia this time after not touring here on the first Beady Eye album?

We’re definitely going to Australia this time. I keep hearing conversations about it. We wanted to last time as well but we didn’t. This time we definitely are.

POST SCRIPTUM to the email readers:
no Tropical Pizza in Milan, postponed. I knew they were busy in Glasgow.

Beady Eye @ HMV & Pretty Green +videoS added

MANCHESTER - HMV, where we bought the first Oasis cds in 1994 :)

High-fiving under-tens, posing for selfies with fans and giggling with bandmates... Sounds like a day in the life of The Wanted but nope, we're talking Liam Gallagher here, who showed his softer side at a meet and greet event at Manchester's HMV. The British rock icon is on a promotional tour for new album BE, which kicked off earlier this week with an intimate performance at London's Rough Trade East. Back on home soil last night, Gallagher seemed delighted as he met fans and appeared to be having more fun than he has in years, as he is seen laughing and joking with bandmates during the fan event.

Homecoming rock star Liam Gallagher hailed Manchester as the 'centre of the universe' as he and band Beady Eye launched their new album BE in the city.
The group headed to Manchester for a packed album signing event at HMV on Market Street to huge cheers from the crowd.

And the band’s biggest fans were rewarded for their loyalty – after queuing to meet their idols, a select group of 100 were then invited to party into the night with Liam and the band.
Liam threw open the doors of his designer clothes store Pretty Green on King Street for the exclusive bash and The Diary was there too.
As he headed to the gig he posted on his twitter: “On my way to Manchester centre of the universe.”
And as he entered Pretty Green there were chants of ‘Liam, Liam’ from the adoring masses.
He and band mates then delighted fans with an acoustic gig of tracks off the new album, which has been gaining rave reviews in the music world.
Rumours have been mounting that the band may comeback though, reuniting the warring Burnage brothers.
Needless to say Liam’s new track, Don’t Brother Me, said to be about Noel, was one of the more emotional of the exclusive gig.
There was also a cover of Beatles track Cry Baby Cry, while new track I’m Just Saying, was dedicated to Manc music icon Clint Boon who DJed at the album launch bash.
Liam finished the gig with a heartfelt thanks to the fans, saying: “Thank you for coming, if you bought the album thanks a lot, man, we really appreciate it.”
Fans won’t have to wait too long for Beady Eye’s return – they play an eagerly-anticipated gig at the Ritz.

ahaha nice video. Free gigs and (hours of) autographs, Noel Gallagher would never do that

Beady Eye funny interview

LONDON - It would be exhausting to be the combative caricature that is "Liam Gallagher" 24 hours a day, so thankfully the frontman of Beady Eye doesn't even try. The more mellow figure GQ meets with his bandmates in John Henry studios in North London is in a cheery mood, whether discussing Shane Meadows' Made In Stone documentary ("It looks absolutely fucking biblical - especially my bit") or debating the merits of the new Daft Punk album (drummer Chris Sharrock says it sounds like "Steely Dan with the Smash potato men singing over the top of it"). Gallagher is particularly keen to share his admiration for Miles Kane, not only musically but also for choosing to make his own decisions on how much leopard skin is too much. "You can't be having stylists mate," says Gallagher with feeling "You can't look good all the time but when you do you want to take all the credit, not some knobhead called Giles." Inevitably, Gallagher's own sunglasses remain on throughout.

We are here to discuss BE, Beady Eye's new record that marks a quantum leap forward from the meat-and-potatoes rock of their 2011 debut Different Gear Still Speeding. Some credit will certainly go to Dave Sitek, the cosmic producer behind TV On The Radio, but some must also go to a band finally deciding to step out of the enormous shadow of Oasis. To mark the release this month, GQ sat down with the band - Gallagher and Sharrock joined by guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell - to discuss tour bus survival tactics, drinking with Jimmy Carr and why Gallagher doesn't believe in Yeezus.

What lyric are you most proud of writing on the new album?
Liam: "Ten years later /We'll still remember / Throwaway songs we learn today." We like all the lyrics, all the songs, man. If you'd pulled out one, you'd be a cunt.

Working titles for the album included Lay Off My Avocado Baby and Universal Gleam. Any others?
Gem: Flick Of the Finger was called Velvet Building for ages because Liam wanted the drumbeat to be like the Velvet Underground. I went "How?" He said "just building [up]... for four minutes." Now in our heads we think of it as this great big purple townhouse.

What did you argue with Be producer Dave Sitek about?
LG: We only had five weeks so I guess he wanted to make a list of songs and get out of there. But we were adamant that we wanted to record every demo that we had. You don't know until you've tried: a song could take a fucking mad turn. That was pretty much it - other than stop burning sage because we can't see anything!
G: Apparently there is a certain type of burnable sage but Andy reckons [Sitek] was basically burning condiments...

What's your karaoke song?
L: I've never done it man. If I did and I did it with the missus and it would be that tune, that Dolly Parton one with Kenny Rogers. Islands In the Stream? That's a fucking tune. I'd do that honest to God.
Andy: I'd do something like My Way. That would suit me. I'm thinking dignified, that's where I'm going with it. I'm not doing Agadoo.

What have you bought on tour you've regretted?
L: Cockin' hell. Drugs? I find it's more what you bring on tour that you regret. When you think, What have I brought that fucking stupid jacket for? You got to carry it about all year.
Chris: I bought a bit of the Berlin wall that was in a minibar for about £8.
G: You buy stuff, you put it in the cases and then about four months after the tour has finished, they give you some voodoo stick you've bought in Mexico.

What do you read in every interview that annoys you?
L: I guess it's the Oasis thing really - but you've got to answer it, haven't you, or else people think you're up your own arse? They keep asking about Oasis when we're trying to talk about this. But the minute you go, "We're not talking about Oasis", people just go "you knob."
G: I pointed it out gently on the phone to a guy recently. "You know that's five questions in a row about Oasis?" There was a real big long pause, he came up with something else and then he had his last question, "OK what would you say is the main difference between Liam and Noel?"

What's a Beady Eye Groupie like?
L: Hairy.
A: Lairy.
C: Scary.
G: And they make you wary.

What's your tour bus survival tip?
L: Keep an eye on the driver and talking to him as much as you can. Keep nudging 'em. We've had a couple of alcoholics and the odd crackhead. Some of the drivers go: "Hey, you guys are so nice man. You guys are always talking to me." Listen mate, I think you're a dick- I'm only talking to you to keep you awake.
G: We've ended up on the hard shoulder a few times haven't we? There are certain times when you're in Germany where you just hear "brrrRRRRRRRRRRrrr." You don't get back to sleep after that. And in America, they're allowed to drive for 20 hours. They have a cup they piss in.
A: So never accept a cup of coffee off the driver either…

What's been your worst experience at a festival?
A: Mine is Sweden. I took my daughter who is 14 to a gig as she lives there. She came on the tour bus to a really nice festival to see loads of really big bands like Primal Scream, Suede and the Prodigy. It was pouring with rain and there's basically no one there. There were only 30 people with umbrellas watching us. Wasn't impressive at all.
L: Next time she'll say "I'm alright Dad - I'm doing my homework."

Which band would you like to see reform?
A: The Kinks, as they were one of the few that haven't.
L: I'd like to see The Smiths. I never seen 'em - I weren't a big fan - but I know all the fucking songs because my brother was into them. I remember when they split up, man. People were proper running around like headless chickens in Manchester. They got a lot of tunes, man.

At GQ Men Of The Year, Jimmy Carr described Liam as "if John Lennon had been reincarnated with Tourettes". Liam then said something to him on stage that ruffled him. What was it?
L: Some kind of cryptic shit, I can't tell you mate. I like Jimmy Carr - I'm in touch with him actually. He's a dude. We were in this mad hotel in New York, The Bowery. It was 3am in the morning and he walks in with his suitcase. He was going to bed but we got him on the piss. We were well gone and then this mad blondie girl from New York has spotted us and walks in. She turns around and says to Jimmy, "What's with the Eighties flick man?" And he turns round to her and says, "What's with the fat arse?" [laughs]

Have you ever had sex to one of your own records?
L: Fuck that! Especially if I'm singing! Or our kid!
G: One has come on in the middle of an ipod and it's not a good feeling. You think, "Do I mention this or do I try and stop it?" Keeping going is not the right answer….
L: "One second… can you turn it up a bit? Can you rewind that?"

Have you ever cheated death?
A: I had a pretty severe allergic reaction on a jet plane. It was pretty heavy. That flight was very eventful: I got on the flight to Miami with the guys as we were off to South America on tour. The first little bite of my food something felt weird. I started swelling up, feeling very itchy, very weird, overheating, finding it hard to breathe. As it was getting to the stage where I thought I won't be able to breathe, I walked up to the toilets and started throwing up really heavily. Managed to get one of our security guys, Steve, to get my adrenalin out and stick it in my leg. Then I had the best three days of my life! The adrenalin is great, if you ever have to use it. It's good - it lasts for ages and when it wears off you think, "Oh, it's just the Epipen. I thought I'd reached a new level in fitness and health and life."

Describe your worst haircut.
L: Mine's probably the Jesus centre parting thing I had a few years ago. I look at it now and just think: "You dick." Felt good at the time though.
A: I had a quiff when I was about 16. I went for the Morrissey - that's bad news that. I always wanted really long hair - the full Neil From The Young Ones. And a beard. But I'm cursed with hair that only ever gets medium.
G: I went for the full Taxi Driver once: the full Travis Bickle. My mam made me eat upstairs until it grew back. Seriously, she thought I was a right troublemaker.
L: "Are you talking to me, Mam?"

Liam, is your jacket Pretty Green?
L: I'm not telling you who it is - I'm not giving them any fucking publicity!
G: I'm not telling you who this jacket is from as I bloody had to pay for it.
A: It's written on the buttons…
G: Anyway, it all works out man because some of my favourite sunglasses cost £7.
C: You know that ZZ Top record "Cheap Sunglasses" - it's about a hangover so bad you've got to go and get some.
G: I was speaking to someone the other day - the geezer who he works with wears £900 jeans. That's wrong isn't it? Jeans should be £60, maximum.
L: That is wrong. Levi's all the way man.

What do you make of Kanye West calling his album Yeezus?
L: I couldn't give a fuck what that fuckin clown gets up to. Have you seen when he bumped his head? He's coming out of the gym with that bird and there are geezers taking pictures. You have to put your head up and carry on walking. He's gone [mimes putting his head down] and walked straight into a fucking pole. You hear it go "dink" and him tell people to stop taking pictures. Put your head up so you know what you're doing! Smashed his head up: he's a fucking idiot. You'll never see Jesus banging his head.

Have you ever stolen anything?
G: Who hasn't? You know my picture of John Lennon that's by my piano in the basement…
L: Are you sure you want to say this? "Gem Archer: tea leaf." Could ruin your whole career…
G: I was in my old band and they were showing the Stones' rock and roll movie at the Astoria on the same night they were launching something to do with the Beatles on Savile row. That was the night I got up on the roof. We were in John Lennon's office in Apple. There were all these photos around. I knew the [PR] girl as she did something with the Boo Radleys, I pointed to one and said "That's great can I buy that? and said "Gem, just take it - no one will notice." I felt like one of the Rutles walking out. My Eric Idle moment!

What should no man have in his wardrobe?
L: Another naked man.
A: Clothing wise, definitely no silk socks, dungarees and waistcoats - I'm not a big fan of waistcoats.
G: Fuck I was going to bust one out! I heard a story that the Who's John Entwistle used to keep a proper skeleton in every wardrobe in his house.

What's the strangest place you've heard Beady Eye?
A: Hollyoaks. I'm a fan of Hollyoaks - normally just by day as the night one is a bit hardcore isn't it? Brings me out in a hot flush.

What's the strangest gift you've ever got from a fan?
G: I got a wreath once. It was in Spain. That was really dark.
L: The usual: crabs. [laughs] You know that's got to have been said a million times. Like Lemmy: get in there! I met him once on a plane. I thought, "I'm not going to drink on this flight, I'm going to wind my neck in. Can I get a water please?" Next minute a pair of cowboy boots get put down beside me. He looked at me and said "What the fuck are you doing drinking water?"
G:I was on that flight. All Lemmy got off the plane with was duty free and his cowboy boots.

Who do you see as your competition?
L: No-one. Us. Ourselves. We're not part of a scene. We're just doing our own thing. We want to be left alone so we can get on with it. It's not Noel, it's not Kasabian, it's no-one really.
A: Noel's carrying on the Oasis brand himself and hopefully we're ploughing our own path a bit more.
G: Me and Chris were saying we think we've earned our place over here to be left alone to do our thing.
A: But still come and see us and buy the record.

When were you last starstruck?
L: When I went in the toilet a minute ago and looked in the mirror.
A: I met Debbie Harry, that was pretty amazing. Had a photo with her.I got a peck on the cheek.

Can you recommend a good book?
G: Wonderland Avenue. I read it years ago. It's about LA when it was all kicking off with The Stooges and Jim Morrison. It's this young kid Danny Sugerman and he's seen as a good eye and a good ear. There are some funny bits in it man: Jim Morrison's dad chasing him around the pool trying to give him a crew cut.
A: If you like conspiracy theories Voodoo Histories by David Aaronovitch is a top book.
C: The Arthur Lowe biography: A Life That Led To Mainwaring.

What's the best thing you can cook?
L: I really can't cook man.
G: I'm getting into it. Apparently all the teenagers that my kids drag in reckon that my mash is the bollocks. The key is that you can't rush the mash. I shouldn't be giving you all my secrets but it depends on the potatoes: if you put cold milk in it makes it lumpy. Cut the potatoes small enough but not so small that they get watery when they're done.

What's the best advice you've ever received?
A: He didn't give it to me personally but Phil Spector's motto was, "Be good to rock'n'roll and rock'n'roll will be good to you."
L: I've got one like that. John Lennon: "Everything will be OK in the end. And if it ain't ok, then it ain't the end."

What do you fear you'll be remembered for?
L: Not cooking. Any regrets? Not really no. It was all meant to be no matter what you do.
A: Nothing. I don't think made much of an impression on the world yet. Not that I really wanted to be remembered anyway but in the end…

Beady Eye 3rd album

LONDON - In an interview with Faster Louder, former Oasis bassist Andy Bell revealed that Australian dates are on the cards after skipping us on their 2011 tour. "We’re definitely going to Australia this time, I keep hearing conversations about it," he said "We wanted to last time as well but we didn’t. This time we definitely are.”
Noel would say: "Australians only hope is cricket. Fuck off, cricket players!"

There will be a Beady Eye 3rd album, all the haters (some Noel's fans too) just accept it and fuck off, assholes.
In our rap era, rock'n'roll is fresh air.

from Clash:
will the bands next album be even bigger, better and stranger then the current one?

Liam: Yeah, I guess so. Who fuckin' knows, man? The door is definitely open. With this album we've definitely gone to a new dimension - whether it's the right one, time will tell and that, but I like it. The gloves are off now - we can definitely do some weird shit, man.

what about the initial ideas for BE?

We demoed all the songs that are on this album, and they were good; we could have gone in and made it like that and it would have been stuck in that '60s kinda rut - but I like that kind of thing. So it would have still been good, but I guess it would have been Different Gear Still Speeding Part Two, you know what I mean? We're always up for a bit of change - we're always up for doing something different - but until it's in front of your face and your ears, it's hard to tell what you want to do. So with [previous producer] Dave Sardy, Scott, our new manager, he said, Look, you don't want to go in with the normal producer, you've got to go with someone who's a little bit out of your comfort zone. I went, Cool. Let's fuckin' check it out.
The first day I met Dave Sitek was in the studio. I liked abit of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs - I've never really heard much about his band [Tv on the Radio] - and then he just started fuckin' playing us what he'd done to [the demo of] 'lick Of The Finger. I thought, Fuckin' yes - it had a dark and menacing edge to it that we didn't have. And then when he got Soul Love out, he'd started putting all these atmospherics on it and cosmic fuckin' shit - ambient stuff that we wouldn't normally do. So that's when we thought, Yeah, this is it, man.

How do you think your own song writing has progressed since your initial forays with Oasis?

Yeah, it's getting better, man. I mean, it's like anything: if you keep practicing... You'll never master the art of song writing, and I don't want to. I'd say I'm a part-time songwriter -I can sing anyone's songs, you know what I mean? But yeah, I'm obviously getting a little bit better. I'm not much of a wordsmith. I tend to go with the first thing that comes down; I just write it and hopefully it has a bit of a root to it. Sometimes it means absolute jack shit and then you listen back to it... Like with Don't Brother Me; you go, Oh, right - I didn't intentionally go out and write a song about our kid, you know what I mean? It just happened.

It's a cleverly passive/ aggressive song.

Yeah. It's not that malicious, you know what I mean? There are a couple of little [digs] in there. Like, he's going on about if he had a gun and all this shit, and it's like, Did you shoot your gun? But there's nothing! malicious, man. It could be a lot worse.

But you've got to be prepared for people asking you about it?

Yeah man, without a doubt. I wouldn't have put it out unless... If| people ask me a question, they're always gonna get a fuckin' honest answer. But I don't care anyway; he's been writing songs about me all his fuckin' life.

Do you prefer to air your feelings in your music rather than keep them private?

Yeah, but he knows my feelings. Everyone knows my feelings, I'm not shy with that. I love our kid - as in the Noel that's not in a band and not in the music business and not all that bullshit that people see he is. But the band Noel? The fuckin' geezer that's in the band? I fuckin' absolutely fuckin' despise [him]. And I guess he feels the same way. But if you speak to him, he'll probably go: Yeah, I know; I hate both the cunts. 
But yeah, I love our kid when he's not surrounded by the bullshit.

How do you define what a Beady Eye song is?

A Beady Eye song has got to have attitude, it's got to have a great melody, great chords - you've got to be able to play it on acoustic, you know what I mean? That's how I measure a good song: if vou can fuckin' sit there and strum it on the acoustic guitar in your house to your dogs and it still sounds good, then that's the sound of a good song. Then once you put all the other shit on it, then obviously it gets better, I guess.

Andy: At the beginning of the demo session we were like, Let's direct ourselves at a cross between [George Harrison's] Wonderwall Music soundtrack and All Things Must Pass. We had a sort of orchestral Simon And Garfunkel epicness.

Gem: Yeah, Liam was banging on about Simon and Garfunkel a lot, but what we actually wanted from the lyrics and the melodies was just real strong songs, man. Emotion, directness, vulnerability, hope, broken hearts, paranoia; the usual kind of adult emotions that you pick up.

A: With the first album we would have been saying, Right, we need rock 'n' roll. It needs to be lairy, lean and mean. We don't want to have any indulgent bits on it - not too many guitar solos - we just want it to be arranged to play the fuck out of live. So that was the message there. The message now was more like a bit of headspace. Dave saw that in the tunes and he brought a whole lot of ambience to it as well that we wouldn't have got near without him. Dave added the ambience, the chaos, the invention, the questioning - we questioned every tune on the day. We came out with an amazing record that at times is space rock, other times is ambient, at times it is like Hawkwind, and at other times it's like Oasis or Beady Eye's first album; it kind of runs through the whole spectrum.

About the mindset between going into the new album from their debut:
G: With [the debut] we wanted to play some rock 'n' roll and it was just about getting moving after the band had split - if we'd have left it too long we would have probably got the fear. Now this one sounds like our considered opinion.

A: We were just frantic coming out of Oasis and we just wanted to get moving, and we had a bunch of tunes that we were already ready to do and wanted to build a live set, because we didn't want to do Oasis tunes straight away - we wanted to be Beady Eye and start off and make that an entity of its own. So making the album, you hear it: you can feel that franticness in it, you can feel the fact we are almost reeling a little bit. But these are not necessarily bad things, you know?

were you restricted with what you could do musically in Oasis? since you've been Beady Eye, is there more room to experiment?

A: Yeah. I guess it's all in our hands; it's a smaller concern and it's not so important what we do in the big picture of life and the universe, so we're allowed to just do what we want and are just getting on with having fun with it in our little corner of the world. It doesn't really feel like the world of music is waiting to hear it so we're just kind of getting on with it, and then maybe it will catch fire".

There were a lot of songs demoed. How many did you originally have, and what happened to them all?

A: Well, at the end of our demos we had twenty-one things but they weren't all songs. One of them was just sort of noises...

G: That was the thing that kind of hooked [Dave]. We sent him five songs and he went, 'These are really strong, have you got any more?' So we thought we should send him the lot, because you should be open. And in amongst that there was a thereemin solo and he went, 'Right, you guys' songs are really strong - do you want to go there?' We went, 'Absolutely', and he went, 'Perfect!' Because he didn't know if we were going to be precious and uptight or 'this is how it is', you know? That was it. And then we attempted to record them all in five weeks.

A: That was the only battle, really, being up against it with the time in the studio. Dave was trying to get the number of songs down to cut his workload down but we just wouldn't let him do it. Towards the end of every week he just kind of said, 'You know guys, over the weekend can you have a little think about the priorities?' And we would be like, 'Yup'.

G: Until the fourth week in and he was like, 'Can you guys make a fucking list?!' And we thought, We've only got one more weekend to put him off and we will have done the lot!'

A: We came out with eighteen.

G: Second Bite Of The Apple was the last song to be recorded. Initially it was Liam going, 'Fuck it, we're doing the lot, man, because you never know.' And that's the point of working with a producer: the possibilities are there, everything is up for grabs, and you just don't know until you get your hands dirty.

L: It was a good song, but if we hadn't have kept at doing it, it wouldn't have turned out like that. You've got to give every song a chance, because shit can happen. You can bring it in dressed like summat, and it can come out dressed like summat else.

So it surprises you as much as it does anyone else?

L: Yeah. The first idea might not be the best idea - it might be your third or your fourth. And we're up for that, man, we've always been up for that. In Oasis it wasn't so much - it was pretty much: 'This is if, boom, 'That's it', and that's what we do. But with Beady Eye, the world is our oyster, man. We can do what the fuck we want, because we're all for going with the flow, you know what I mean?

BE 9th positive review

LONDON - Between the Beatles and the Beach Boys (hated by jealous Noel...too many hits), no more the fucking Osmonds ahaha (they censored the nipple in Italy too, with the sticker).
Another positive review:

Liam has put the middle finger up at his many critics, Gallagher is back to his best.
Liam Gallagher and his Beady Eye boys are back with the follow up to their debut album Different Gear Still Speeding with new album BE, and its certainly proved Liam has still got it.

Teaming up with producer Dave Sitek seemed a little bit of a gamble at first, but with his input adding some punch and shaking Beady Eye’s sound up, its certainly been a gamble worth taking.
The album is certainly no Oasis album as everyone secretly hopes, although Gallagher said it never would be, album opener Flick Of The Finger opens your ears as you get that thought after the opening 30 seconds that you are ready to hear a top album. Moving into the next single Soul Love see’s Gallagher firmly in his comfort zone, acoustic Brit-pop at its finest and Gallagher’s songwriting improving from a mediocre first album, lyrics such as “life is short, don’t be shy, spread your wings and learn to fly” from Soul Love prove that.
The album is something that might even make you want to sit back and get your feet tickled by the NME… maybe that’s just Gallagher, apart from that awful lyric on Second Bite Of The Apple [song by Gem, responsible for co-writing Noel Gallagher's solo album], the album provides a mostly acoustic Brit-pop record with obvious Oasis feelings, but also an album that punches in places with the more in your face tracks such as Face The Crowd.
Don’t Brother Me is a 7 and a half minute song seemingly a tribute to his long lost estranged brother with the repeated lyric ‘give peace a chance’. Moving to I’m Just Saying, the track is one of the best on the album, the band really excelling themselves, seemingly finding exactly how they want Beady Eye to sound.
Gallagher will probably never have the lyrical talent of his brother, nor will Beady Eye ever be Oasis, but this is him getting back to his best; with Dave Sitek on board with the production, its certainly an album that won’t be written off like their debut.

BE is about change

LONDON - Summer's here and the time is right...
The band's new record BE came out (thanks for the birthday gift) and producer Dave Sitek is excited to see the reaction it gets.
In a voice over on a video teaser, he says: ''This will go out into the world, and our work is done, and that's our primary responsibility. And the gift that we get from doing something like this is the present. Like, when we press play.
''That's the highest gift anyone can have, it's like ''woah, fuck'', we made something happen. I mean, life is about growth, it's about change.''

It's a studio footage, demonstrating some of the process behind, featuring Beady Eye hard at work.

Singer Liam Gallagher has been particularly vocal in championing Dave - who has previously produced albums for Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jane's Addiction - for helping push the band in a new direction.

He previously said: "He's the best producer I've ever worked with, ever. His eyes are wide open, he's got no fear. We feel like a fucking new band. He's out there, man. To me, he's a fucking outlaw. He's got no fear, man, and he's right up for ripping everything into pieces and experimenting."

The new album features a rejuvenated group, one who have benefited from an outfit voice. Renowned producer Sitek stood over proceedings, helping to allow the band to find their feet.

Taking chances, BE - as Clash editor Simon Harper puts it - "finds them listening to instincts, indulging creative impulses, and elevating ambitions beyond the restrictions of blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll."

"A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphisics of books". (Walt Whitman) ..... "What's the story morning glory?", American expression (something like "what's up?"), but also spicy thai vegetable :), and girls say it's also a morning male erection

What's the story morning glory - the most famous Oasis album - London at dawn, Soho, Berwick Street, known for its independent record shops. On the left it's Sister Ray records shop, then it went into administration...

..... Who feels love? - Arizona - video inspired by Zabriskie Point, movie by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni, with Mark Frechette

2000, Twin Towers down there... before September 11... on the single "Sunday morning call" there was New York with a fallen glass... New York City skyline from the rooftop of the Rockefeller Center. The album's title was taken from the words made famous by Sir Isaac Newton: "If I can see further than anyone else, it is only because I am standing on the shoulders of giants". Noel saw the quote on the side of a £2 coin while in a pub and liked it so much he thought it would be a suitable name for the new album. He then wrote the name on the side of a cigarette packet while drunk. When he awoke in the morning, he realised he had written "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants", not "shoulders"
..... video with Milano Lambretta

Our Lady, Milan symbol in "Stop crying your heart out" video. Oasis have catholic origins

Heathen chemistry - the title came from a t-shirt Noel bought in Ibiza which featured a logo reading, "The Society of Heathen Chemists"

in the little picture: Rodney Marsh, 1972-75 City player (and next to the tv: George Best). A poster of a young Burt Bacharach. They were watching The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, spaghetti western movie by Italian director Sergio Leone, music by the great maestro Ennio Morricone. The room was at Bonehead's house. On the floor, a glass of wine, but it was bilberry juice


as all the greatest music albums covers, almost all Oasis albums covers have summat mysterious, it seems a curse. The last one had an atomic bomb... then they split. In '95 they put the pier of Weston-super-Mare on "Roll with it" cover, then it was burnt

"La musica non ha mai spostato niente, neanche negli anni '60, ai tempi del Vietnam. Il rock incide nel look, negli atteggiamenti, ma non nella politica. Forse conoscendolo Lennon era un cretino, non ci sarei andato d'accordo e l'avrei odiato. La gente parla troppo della sua vita, del pacifismo e così via, quello che mi interessa sono solo le sue canzoni.
E se qualcuno organizza una marcia contro la guerra, io preferisco andare al parco con mia figlia".
(Noel Gallagher, Oasis)
Music never moved anything, not even in the '60s, at Vietnam times. Rock influences look, attitudes, but not politics. Maybe knowing him Lennon was an idiot, I wouldn't got on well with him and would have hated him. People speak too much of his life, pacifism, and so on, I'm interested only in his songs.
And if anybody organizes a march against war, I prefer going to the park with my daughter.

..... vote for Noel Prime Minister: 1) a good politician is a rich one, 2) more police on the streets

Seguo gli Oasis dall'inizio, dal 1994 (da quando c'è lo zio Silvio in politica ahaha), il Britpop iniziava a conquistare il mondo, e in Inghilterra noi 16enni-17enni compravamo cd con una certa canzone appena uscita che diceva proprio: Mister Sifter sold me songs when I was just 16...
..... The meaning of soul (live in Milan @ Alcatraz) - This one's not for Marco :) but I dedicate it to Melissa, a girl with heart problems I took out from gig mayhem. Escape from Alcatraz ghghgh It used to be the song on English tv, for Premier League Sky Sports ad. "...I'm a different breed, I'm outta your league, I'm 10 outta 10 alright... All rise, I see the love in your eyes, if it's alright then I'll be your light"

..... Rockin' chair , my favourite song ever.
Video with a final surprise at the end...........
I played this song till my fingers bled.
The shape of England is not so different from Italy one.
Notice the images and the turtle as my turtle Alberta in "I'm older than I wish to be" :) (and the turtle then is also on Noel plectrum, he played with it, I played with it).
And yes, that pier in Weston-super-Mare was burnt. And Oasis are over now (definitely maybe).
For going around we were still using a tour bus, and as it was our first time there, we had a big surprise when a bus full of British people overtook us, all of them smiling and waving their hands but suddenly they turned and showed us their arses ahahaha
"The one who's got right ideas among confused people, he's like one with a working clock in a city where all the clocks are wrong. He's the only one knowing the right time, but what's the use? Everybody's following the others one, even those who know the right time..."
That was the meaning of the word "Oasis", an isolated place in a desert.
"As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means".

Noel Thomas David Gallagher

Noel Thomas David Gallagher

2009. I was at 3 Oasis gigs in 1 month, even climbing the Italian Alps, highest European mountains, and arriving first in Switzerland, my last Oasis gig, seen it on the front row in front of Noel winking an eye at me ;) (and Glasvegas did the same) playing as in room for me and two Swiss birds lol, the "veline" :))

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. And in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'".
(Jack Kerouac)

mad fer it !!!
..... "Slide away" piano music: we have a real piece of Moon next to my house, that is Manchester City symbol. The World Cup too, it was made here by a Milan artist. You can see Capello table @ the Football English pub here and also Jesi, the town of former Inter Milan then City and Italy manager Mancini, where my uncle was born

"Italy why always you?! what is it with you Italians? why do you seem to 'get it' more than anyone else? it's a constant source of fascination for me"
"I'm currently in Milan. Its been fucking always is. It's fair to say The Italians love me and long may that continue 'cause I love them right back...the beautiful bastards.
The gig was amazing, the kind of gig you'd never want to end. Easily my favourite so far."

"L'Italia è la casa spirituale degli Oasis.
I ragazzi italiani sono come me, molto passionali.
4 elementi li contraddistinguono: il calcio, la musica, la famiglia e l'amore per l'eleganza. I miei amici italiani sono dei fighi, indossano vestiti e scarpe stupende, sciarpe favolose, occhiali da sole anche di notte e donne bellissime al loro fianco. Beh, sono considerato una figura santa in Italia. E' Milano... l'Italia è grande amico, cazzo se mi piace andarci".
Italy is Oasis spiritual home.
Italian boys are like me, very passionate.
4 elements mark them: football, music, family and love for elegance. My Italian friends are cool, they wear wonderful clothes and shoes, fabulous scarves, sunglasses even at night and beautiful women by their side. Well, I'm considered quite a holy figure in Italy, It's Milan... Italy's great man, I fucking love going there.
"Milano è il miglior fottuto pubblico, e lo dico davvero!".
(toccandosi il cuore)
Milan is the best fucking crowd, and I really mean it!
(touching his heart)
"Milano è una città bellissima. Molta gente pagherebbe per stare qui. Non vado quasi mai a fare shopping, quello che mi piace di Milano è la gente".
(David Beckham, Ac Milan, Oasis friend)
Milan is a beautiful city. Many people would pay for staying here. I almost never go shopping, what I like in Milan is the people.
"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous. The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. He shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!"
The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
"I've got the pre-emption over anyone proud boastin' music royalties about you :). When you told me to be not so good, I thought you were just humble. Now, on the contrary, I think you're a famous incognito singer, determined to cheer up the world with your voice, for free".

..... Balotelli ahahaha and City symbol on Noel's guitar :). This tune was my alarm clock to wake up in the morning from '97 to 2000. At a 1997 gig after the first chord of 'Be here now' I was literally flying, gone fuckin' mad fer it, continuously shouting and jumping embraced with all the people. Best fun of my life.

Be here now: a Milano Lambretta (name from Milan river Lambro), owned by Noel, and a Rolls-Royce. Photo at Stocks House hotel in Hertfordshire
London->Milan, November 2009, with Milan legend Paolo Maldini ..... love the welcome ahahahaha with a Milan Lambretta behind... waiting for a PG shop in Milan.
In the same days: new AC Milan shop in Milan ..... the centre of the world.
Milan Expo 2015 Masterplan, the new zone where Oasis had to perform their last concert in history... before the "break" of 5 years... we're all part of a Masterplan... (the music is the anthem of North Italy, capital city: Milan, of course, titled "Va pensiero - sull'ali dorate", "Go, thought - on golden wings", by Verdi).
A new Milan part with strange skyscrapers is gonna be called 'City Life'.
In his 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere', Noel refers to Italy as the bands’ 'spiritual home' and anyone who has been to an Oasis gig in Italy will know why. It’s fitting that Oasis have chosen Milan to stage the final show...
(from the official site )
Milan, not Rome. Against Rome:
"Domani, be' cos'è domani? Lasciamo che Roma si dissolva nel Tevere! E che il grande impero crolli! Questo è il momento; i regni sono fatti d'argilla".
(Oasis, What's the story book)

the beginning of Pretty Green, Milan, 11 March 2009 (same day: Inter Milan losing in Manchester ehehe). My English blue navy Pretty Green scarf, a must-have: a soft, lightweight polka dot scarf made from 100% cotton and expertly hand-printed by Italy’s leading scarf producer

wearing British military clothes Kangol. Two English girls in Italy had a Kangol hat and I recognised from the brand that they were going to an Oasis gig (Lucca 2002)
