The end of Oasis

20 years Creation-Oasis

GLASGOW - It's 20 years since Alan McGee stepped into Glasgow King Tuts and signed Oasis. Time to visit 1994 via Rock's Backpages and find out what the Creation Records founder was thinking …
Alan McGee founded Creation Records 10 years ago. Now this former British Rail clerk's labour of love is a floatable proposition, with nearly half of its shares owned by Sony. McGee surprised many when he got into bed with the company, not least because he was supposedly no fan of corporate structures. But that may simply be a sentimental view, judging by the candid assessment he gives over coffee at the Dome, Regent Street.
"In September 1992, I got fed up with selling 200,000 Primal Scream records in England and 18,000 in Germany," says McGee. "I got tired of selling only 3,000 Bandwagonesques there. It's all about distribution. If you're signed to some shit fuckin' indie, no matter what it does for your credibility, it does nothing to promote your group. Sony help us get worldwide distribution. At the moment, we're still getting some crap sales, but the potential is there. I've sold Sony 49%, which makes them feel good, but I'm very loyal to our bands. I've got their best interests at heart.
"The truth is that, without financial backing, it is now very hard to exist in England, but when I've gone in to Sony and said: 'Look, you need to help us with so-and-so,' they've always done it. And they don't talk to me about the music we put out, ever."
In 1984, McGee was looking after a young and irascible Jesus and Mary Chain. Like his proteges, McGee's clothes may be sharper 10 years on, but he hasn't really changed that much, and he remains a patron to like-minded fanatics such as Bobby Gillespie, the Jazz Butcher, Bill "the Man" Drummond and Lawrence from Felt/Denim.
In celebration of Creation's first decade, McGee has gathered together his 10 most personal mementoes. It comes as no surprise that what feature most among his choices are items that spark off memories of liaisons with some of rock's greatest mavericks.

OASIS

"This group, Oasis, are the one recent thing that made me go: 'Fuckin' hell, I still believe in rock'n'roll.' I saw them last year and it was a complete fluke. I was at an 18 Wheeler show in Glasgow at King Tut's Wah-Wah Hut. Third on the bill were a band from Manchester. They were friends of Oasis and they'd told the band they could play fourth on the bill. So Oasis hired a van and drove up from Manchester with their mates and when they arrived the promoter says: 'No. Fuck off.' And they're saying: 'Look, it's cost us £200 to hire the van and equipment and get here. If you don't let us play, we'll smash your club up. There's 10 of us and only two security …'

"So the promoter lets them play. Now, I wouldn't have got to see them normally, because when a band of mine's playing I usually get in five minutes before they come on stage. However, because I'd gone with my sister Susan, who doesn't happen to own a watch, I got there two hours early. I witnessed all the shenanigans, so I wanted to see what they were like.

"The first song was really good. Then the second was incredible. By the time they did this fantastic version of I Am the Walrus, I'd decided I've got to sign this group, now. I said: 'Do you have a record deal? Do you want one? I wanna do it.' Eventually they had 20 record companies offering them deals and at the last minute Mother Records, owned by U2, phoned and said: 'We'll offer double what McGee is offering.'

"The music is a cross between the Kinks, Stone Roses and the Who, and the cover of this tape, which is incredibly rare, only 10 ever made, is important because it's a Union Jack going down the toilet. That sums up our country at the moment. I don't want to herald them too much, but they're already one of my favourite groups. Seeing them is what seeing the Stones must have been like in the early days. Brutal, exciting, arrogant."

Kasabian in Milan


MILAN - Kasabian in piazza Duomo, Milano. They also visited the San Siro stadium.


Ennio Morricone music as intro, legendary. And later the Italian anthem as usual. 
funny 'cause we have seen Morricone in the same square too. 

more to add soon

BE orchestra, maestro +tour with brass


LONDON - Model Jennifer with brass :). Flick of the finger, Beady Eye @ Later with Jools Holland, with 2 drum kits, the other drummer is Jay Sharrock, Chris' son. 
Liam was a bit ill but the problem is the microphone, too low volume compared to the horns, reminds of Noel's times when the bastard was always keeping it low. 

Beady Eye will take a brass section on tour with them.
The rockers are heading out on the road for three UK dates following the release of their second album BE on June 10 and will incorporating the record's extensive use of horns in their live shows on tracks such as Flick of the Finger and Second Bite of the Apple.
Gem can't wait to play with the extra musicians and has told fans they can expect a sonic ''kick in the face'' from the band at their concerts.
Gem said: ''We're going to take a brass band with us when we can (on tour), when the venues are right. Just get them together and get on the road with us. In rehearsals some of these tunes are sounding huge. We want to kick people in the face with a wall of sound. We've got a few surprises as well.''
One of those surprises could be the use of two drummers.

new video for Soul Love


MOON - Liam: "the whole song fits with the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the baby going to the moon". 
The song was remodelled beneath a giant screen showing the film. Sitek says he didn't want to change its acoustic flavour, "But I thought, what if the guitar belonged to an astronaut who's never coming back? He's on the spaceship strumming, as his home planet gets smaller through the window".

even haters liked it: "Liam’s vocals are stripped back — reverb cutbacks and the pipes are in good working order. A crackly production which gives it the sound of vinyl. It got a round of applause from the room."

Beady Eye album leaking



MOON - soon a high quality and they will sound much better so we can judge. I've heard the whole new album, the final part of Start Anew sounds different, like a remix. Iz Rite is a top tune, song of the summer 2013. “When you call my name, it takes away my pain, so only love remains, just say it again” 
"Off at the next exit" is a classic (it's on the deluxe version).
The people who already don't like the album, they DECIDED they don't like it. The music needs to grow, with time 


...'cause I get the fear the more I get you near, the more you fade away... 
from the bonus tracks, beautiful

lucky Daft Prick +BE cinema

MONTE-CARLO - Liam attacked "Daft Punk" (on Lotus cars this Formula 1 weekend in Monaco) and their song "Get Lucky"... this is the result ahaha very lucky. Total shite music, criticised even by their own fans.
And 2 other times now in this same moment I'm writing this post. French blinded Grosjean-disaster is only able to crash cars (even worse than Massa). But don't worry, son: different gear, still speeding ahaha
Raikkonen lucky the same: problems in practice and bumped by Perez during the race.
I wonder how Daft Punk can sell so much and beat (Oasis?) records in the UK, place of rock music. There must have been something going wrong there... I'd expect that from some daft germanz... you know that country losing everytime they face Italy. Well sure I wasn't expecting the composing music level of Ennio Morricone (Noel's main inspiration) and singing like Pavarotti or Bocelli.
And french... in England... please. 
Wait... the same place where Noel Gallagher is one the "wittiest persons"... enough said. Well sure, telling a thousand lies. That sounds so very french, fake ones copying everything.
Liam: “Take your fucking helmet off. Let’s see what you look like sans helmet, whatever you’re called.”
Sure public people not showing their face are not very credible. Sure that "daft" must autobiographical. Daft pricks.

During the race: 4th bad accident in 3 days by Grosjean, what an idiot. That must be some sort of record.

Once again, haters must have fallen in love with the new album...
Liam Gallagher has returned just in time to rescue rock'n'roll.
I got to join Liam at the launch of Beady Eye's new album BE at London’s Soho Hotel.
The booze flowed from the moment Liam walked into the bar before the record was played to a handful of invited journalists.
All eyes were on Liam – even when the album was being played in the darkened room.
Proper grooves and smooth vocals rang out on Soul Love, retro rhythms on Iz Rite and the softer side of Liam on Start Anew.
“This is a better night than Our Kid would give you, isn’t it? I bet he offered you a polite glass of wine and that was that, like a slug.”
[nah, Noel (uncle Scrooge McDuck) is so attached to money, he wouldn't give anything. Apart from worldwide conferences, announcing a thousand lies.]
Liam declared: “No-one has more fun than me, I’m a rock ’n’ roll star."
[that's why so many people are jealous - he's having fun at 40, they don't have at 20]
Liam formed Beady Eye in 2009 the day after Oasis split, even though he had more than enough money to take a break.
“I do it ’cos I’m addicted to it and I can’t get out of it man,” he admitted. “That’s what I’m born to do. I do it ’cos I wanna do it."
The honesty spills out of Liam – and love or hate him, you can’t deny he’s entertaining.
When he returned, Liam requested another vodka and tonic which he proceeded to pour into my wine glass as he thought I was being “a square” and needed to become “a circle”.
“I’m not a songwriter, I’m a part-time songwriter,” he announced. “I’m a rock star.”
And one of the best I’ve enjoyed the company of in years.


When it was suggested some of the lyrics were amongst the most honest he had committed to record, he added: ''You're right what you're on about, at the time that's how I felt. At that moment I was writing songs about peace and harmony, it just goes wherever it goes.''
Guitarist Gem also hinted some of the tracks could be influenced by the demise of Oasis but revealed the band never ask the songwriters to explain their lyrics.
He said: ''Look (Oasis), was 10 years of our lives, more for Liam. It's going to come out in what we do. It's just natural. But as a band we don't ask people to explain what their lyrics are about when they bring them in.''
The album contains a number of introspective tracks, including I'm Just Saying and Ballroom Figured, which contains the lyrics ''Did you ever loan me that song? / Did you ever know me at all?''
There are also several high energy rockers, such as the horn-driven Flick of the Finger, Face The Crowd - which has a big chorus complete with hand claps - and Iz Rite, a 60s inspired track with strings.
Gem believes the album has a cinematic feel to it and he credits producer Dave Sitek for guiding the band in a different direction to their debut record.
He said: ''To me is does sound like a film soundtrack. When we were listening to the finished version of Start Anew that's what it felt like, like it should be on the cinema. That's Dave Sitek, that's what he has brought to us. That sound and scope and those ideas."


oh ma come mi dispiace che la Roma ha perso la Coppa Italia...cori razzisti a Balotelli e minacce alla Lazio... tipico.

BE 2nd positive review

LONDON - And here are the other biggest haters, The Sun, reviewing the album. Quite strange that the first 2 reviews come from the biggest haters. And after all, they're both positive, then the album is really great...

"Liam Gallagher reviews his OWN new album [should he have reviewed The Sun album? oh wait...]
As album playbacks go, Beady Eye’s unveiling of their new effort was as colourful as Liam Gallagher’s leopard-print loafers.
The band — Liam, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock — chose to premiere B.E. — out on June 10 — in a cinema beneath the posh Soho Hotel.
It’s the first time I’ve listened to an album eating popcorn, drinking beer, with a Britpop wildman dancing along to his own tunes behind me. It sounds bananas, but it worked a treat.
It was a bit surreal with Liam chipping in with one-line reviews, shouting out his critique of each track. It was even more surreal seeing his silhouette on the screen as his swaggering dance partially blocked the projector, giving everyone a close-up of his sideburns and sunglasses.
So here are my thoughts on the tracks, with Liam’s thoughts written after.

FLICK OF THE FINGER: A big, classic rock ’n’ roll groove of a track... the brass section is something you wouldn’t expect, but works well. Producer Dave Sitek has lifted the standard on the second album and this is a statement of an opener.
LG: “Fookin’ tune, man.”

SOUL LOVE: Liam’s vocals are stripped back — reverb cutbacks and the pipes are in good working order. A crackly production which gives it the sound of vinyl. It got a round of applause from the room.
LG: “You’re welcome!”

FACE THE CROWD: Raises the tempo with an impressive Gem/Andy groove. Proper clapalong chorus. A nod to The Beatles. Austin Powers would love this track.
LG: “Have that! Tune!”

SECOND BITE OF THE APPLE: Latest single, verses delivered like Oasis’s early single Shakermaker. It builds up nicely.
LG: “Fuckin’ tune!”

SOON COME TOMORROW: Beautiful melody, Sunday afternoon vibe.
LG absent: He went to the bog during this one.

IZ RITE: Gem tune. Solid rock ’n’ roll with great guitars.
LG: “Come on! What a tune.”

I’M JUST SAYING: A bit of early Oasis flavour. Upbeat summer banger of a track...
LG: “Have a go on that!”

DON’T BROTHER ME: The song everyone was waiting for, about Noel Gallagher [it's about The Sun, too...]. The lyrics tell the story: “I know I’m a man, I’ll do what I can/Sick of your scheming and lying/ I’m always in THE SUN with your number one/ You know I’m a man, I’ll do what I can/ Give peace a chance, take my hand/Be a man. All or nothing/ I’ll keep pushing. In the morning, I’ll keep calling/And hope you understand.” The outro is a psychedelic massage of the senses.
LG: “Have it! Tune!”

SHINE A LIGHT: Great drums and rhythm section. Flavour of Rolling Stones and Kinks.
LG absent: In bog again.
[wow they're really funny...]

BALLROOM FIGURED: More down-tempo, acoustic ballad. Impressive and delicate, a gentle touch.
LG: “Fucking tune!”

START ANEW: Vulnerability about it. “Got the whole world in our hands/ Come on take a chance and start anew.”

Liam had the last word in a short speech about the album artwork.
LG: “Top nipple. Thanks for turning up and having a listen, man.”

Liam: there's no Hitler in Beady Eye

LONDON - Liam Gallagher is loving life in Beady Eye, saying “there’s no Hitler” in the band he formed after Oasis split.
With Beady Eye gearing up to release their new album BE, Liam is enjoying it more because everyone is “drinking from the same cup” and said he shouldn’t be blamed by Oasis fans for his brother Noel (the dictator, fan of books about Nazism) leaving the legendary group.
Speaking after the album’s playback, Liam told us track nine Don’t Brother Me – which features the lyrics “give us a chance, take my hand, be a man” and “in the morning I’ll be calling and hoping you’ll understand” – isn’t an apology to Noel.
“I’ve got nothing to apologise for,” said Liam without hesitation when we asked him about the song.
“Our relationship is still touchy, but if I wanted to say sorry to Noel for something that I’ve done apparently wrong I’d ring him, I wouldn’t write a fucking song. It’s not an olive branch."
“I’m not the bad person in this – Noel has done the fucking mad flip and he’s got a whole new weird band [actually, they already disbanded and Noel's alone now]. The only person that’s left our hemisphere is Noel.
“I’ve still got the same rock and roll crew, all the roadies are still with us. Noel has washed his hands with it, which is fine but don’t fucking come back and moan about it when it doesn’t suit your fucking wig.”
So will Liam be sending a copy of BE to Noel?
“He needs to buy it, the motherfucker. I don’t care what he thinks but I hope he enjoys it because we’re not making reggae music, it’s another form of Oasis but he doesn’t want to be part of it. Noel’s playing hard to get.
“I’m fucking loving it in Beady Eye – I’m not missing anything from Oasis. We’re drinking from the same cup and there’s no Hitler.”
During the playback at London’s Soho Hotel, Liam was on top form – shouting “fucking tune” after belters Face the Crowd and I’m Just Saying, dancing to single Second Bite of the Apple and making everyone laugh by describing the topless woman on the front cover of the album as “top nipple”.
“Success to me is putting it out – fuck buying the album, you want people to get it. Money is a vulgar word and I’ve done chart positions.
"It’s not about being No.1, I don’t mind if it goes in at No.40. It blows my mind and we’re cracking on.”

BE 1st review: album to be proud of

LONDON - 1st review of the new album (first listen) is from the biggest haters of Liam : the Daily Star (always talking shit of Liam, even more than The Sun - Liam even dedicated a song -, I once even argued with them, for writing bullshit, with a "fucking woman"). And it's positive! well if even haters liked it, it's gonna be great. I always loved astronomy and naked girls ahaha it could become my favourite album.

"Liam Gallagher and his Beady Eye rockers have produced an album to BE proud of.

When it emerged that arty producer Dave Sitek was overseeing Liam Gallagher’s second post-Oasis effort, eyebrows were raised.
But the first Beady Eye album was so patchy that even Liam admitted it didn’t work – and getting Dave in has transformed them. Liam actually sounds like he wants to be a singer again, and Dave’s experiments make for great psychedelic tunes. Mystical chant Iz Rite is a highlight along with Face The Crowd, Liam’s best shouty rocker since Lyla.
Not everything works – there’s one too many ballads – but it proves Liam’s strongest when people are doubting him.
An album to BE proud of."

Milan più forte dei rosiconi

SIENA - La "Gazzetta giallorossa" (chiii?!) l'aveva sparata grossa, per disturbare i giorni prima di Siena-Milan e farsi pubblicità. Mitico Galliani: "era un sito semi-sconosciuto".
Il "fallo" di Ambrosini avviene PRIMA che venga calciato l'angolo, a gioco fermo, quindi inesistente. Tra l'altro hanno fischiato un fuorigioco che non c'era a El Shaarawy che andava in porta.
Chissà come mai il Siena già retrocesso, dopo 5 sconfitte consecutive, improvvisamente si è impegnato come fosse una finale di Champions... 26 FALLI. Molto strano per aiutare la Fiorentina, visto che in Toscana si odiano pure un paese con l'altro. Vuoi pure che gli regalassero un 30 milioni di euro? Sicuramente avevano qualche accordo di mercato...
Comodo fare le vittime, quando il Presidente della Fiorentina in Champions manco ci sarebbe voluto andare, non avrebbe potuto vendere...
Mezzaroma del Siena: "il Milan per vincere ha avuto bisogno di qualcos'altro..." detto da uno che ha preso 6 punti di penalizzazione... Questa gente, come Montella, anzichè insinuare, perchè non denunciano? gente senza palle, perchè sanno di sparare cazzate.
I rosiconi si sono attaccati a tutto (ora si devono pure attaccare "ar cazzo"), Galliani con "poveracci" si riferiva ai giornalisti-giornalai per la storiella della maglia, non a quelli della Fiorentina (da quale pulpito parlano quelli poi, tra Heysel, cori razzisti, anche oggi una ridicola contestazione alla stazione, insulti a Fiorentina-Milan, tra l'altro partita rubata, ecc.)
Non hanno neanche capito (o fatto finta di non capire, a essere ottimisti) che la patch della Champions non veniva usata quella sera, nè che il Milan non è ancora in Champions neanche col terzo posto. Hanno sbagliato a mettere la toppa così presto ma serviva solo a vendere magliette (certa gente non capisce le strategie commerciali, talmente fanno cagare le loro maglie).
Premio per il romano Bonolis (tifare una squadra romana gli fa troppo schifo), il direttore artistico dell'Inter (chissà come mai non ha detto niente dopo partite tipo Fiorentina-Milan) : Inter al 9° posto, record di sconfitte nella storia del club, e preliminare di Coppa Italia, forse contro una squadra di Serie D.
E a inizio stagione secondo loro il Milan, cioè quelli che li hanno creati, sarebbe andato in Serie B.
Moratti sembra come i bambini: prima quando vinceva non c'erano più complotti, adesso che non vince più, ci sono. Faccia il bambino fino in fondo: non giochi più.
Oh porelli i romani: in vacanza non gli resta che fare gli ululati razzisti a Balotelli.
Solita figura di merda.
Mi piace poi quando dicono (il ministro Kyenge compreso) "non sono razzisti", riescono a essere imbecilli doppiamente. Se vedete la "ministra" di colore (meglio: ogni volta che la vedete), fatele il verso della scimmia, poi vediamo... Urlandole anche: "non ci sono negri italiani"...
"Lo insultiamo perchè lui provoca"... grandissima cazzata. Non provoca neanche nel gioco perchè reagisce sempre a qualcosa, figuriamoci poi il razzismo.
Lui invece alla loro facciazza si consolerà coi 600.000 €uro in più stasera. Macchina nuova e preliminari con una nuova figa :D
Meritatissima. Vai Mario!

Auguriamo alla Roma di vincere la Coppa Italia contro la Lazio...

Fino a poco tempo fa i tifosi non potevano più vedere Allegri, adesso che Berlusconi lo vorrebbe cacciare, fanno i bastian contrario e lo vogliono tenere...
poi quello che racconta balle è sempre Berlusconi, invece Moratti che ne spara a raffica e s'incazza pure, simpatico come le emorroidi, ha "grande stile"... ma per favore!
Tra l'altro prendendo Seedorf, Berlusconi spenderebbe di più sul mercato, per farlo contento

Beady Eye acoustic live



PARIS - New songs, Start anew, beautiful and singing great (Noel's fans-haters had been warned...). A lullaby, an instant classic. The album version will be grandiose. Amazing how the people become expert music critics when it's about Beady Eye only, not Noel where there would be loads to criticise. One point for Beady Eye.

Noel's wife never saw him writing songs

LONDON - Noel Gallagher says his wife barely believes he writes songs.
(His wife Sara hates his music, his son too). He described a recent conversation they had in which he said he wanted to turn the garage of their new home into a "creative space" to write songs.
"She said to me 'I've never seen you writing songs'." Of course, as he's the man who is still paying the most money for copying songs, everytime anyone is buying cds.
He always says those things to appear invincible, as he's a media darling (and illuminati) and nothing can worry him. He even wished something "really bad to happen" for him (what an idiot... and then he got the glandular fever for months).
Kinks star Ray Davies is another one of the list mocking him: "I haven't done anything to help this man's career at all."
This wife is really double-faced... just like Noel. They're two of a kind.
He also said he "didn't find songwriting easy", it's "frustrating" that he starts lots of songs but often fails to finish them, and he would never "stoop" to co-write a song with another artist. His "solo" album was made of songs co-written with Gem from the 2001 and 2004 sessions.
Many websites still call him "former Oasis frontman" (!!! it was called Liam) and now frontman (!!! really?) of a band, yes that already disbanded, and no new album that he announced for 2012.
"I can't be arsed at the moment. I just literally can't be bothered.'' Expect it for 2020.
They also always write "an acclaimed solo career"... like: 23 negative reviews from music experts (not to mention some gigs with even his own fans going away and asking for Liam), 28th Usa chart position for his totally American album, solo career made with 10 Oasis covers, etc.
Noel is the only one who was able to steal from a Neapolitan man (from his travels to South Italy), Pino Daniele... (Death of you and me from Je so' pazzo - apart from the lyrics from Summer in the city), usually it's the other way round...
He attacked One Direction again ("clowns", seems like they're relevant for him...) saying he attended the Novello awards, winning one (of course without people voting, as the NME Godlike Genius award, the only way for him to win prizes) because they weren't invited... oh, a few weeks ago he attacked Emeli Sandé and she won more than him (classic Noel jealous) and she was there, so?
Noel is just ridiculous. I remember he thought the Smiths were "too gay" and see what he says now: "LIAM (obviously) thinks they're too effeminate? I DON'T KNOW.." [sign of a liar]
...said from one singing in falsetto voice to reach the high notes and always on Grazia magazine... 
He thinks to be more intelligent than everybody (he used to be "proud to be ignorant"), when he can't even write and read a music score.
It's called: twat attitude.

More about sacking Mancini: "He obviously didn't get on with a lot of people but I thought it was harsh. I think they should have given him another year. I was shocked, I've got to say."
"[Manuel] Pellegrini seems to have got the job," he concluded of the Chilean.

Beckham retires from (played) football

LONDON - Oasis friend and fan David Beckham (he was also @ last Oasis gig in Milan) has decided to call time on his glittering career. My best memory about him: when he was throwing balls at me in Milanello training centre, I was wearing an England jersey and Oasis sideburns :), he was really "bending it like Beckham" :)
Milan is still in his heart and he always says nice things.
Beckham, 38, helped Paris Saint-Germain lift the Ligue 1 title with AC Milan legend Ancelotti, for the first time in 19 years at the weekend.
And despite being offered a one-year contract extension, the veteran midfielder will retire after Ancelotti’s men play their last game of the season on May 26.
He said: “I’m thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level."
Becks began his path to superstardom at Manchester United, before switching to La Liga side Real Madrid.
He left Spain for a money-spinning move to Los Angeles' LA Galaxy in 2007 and also enjoyed 2 loan spells with Italian giants AC Milan during his time in Major League Soccer.
After his contract expired Stateside, the former England skipper was reunited with ex-Milan boss Ancelotti.
And having relocated from LA in January, Becks is expected to set up a permanent base in London with his wife Victoria and four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper (Brooklyn is a boy, Harper a girl, just saying ahaha).
He added: “If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I’m fortunate to have realised those dreams".
Beckham, 115 caps for England and netted 17 goals, including the vital free-kick against Greece that took Sven Goran Eriksson’s side to the 2002 World Cup.
He made his international debut in 1996 and scored in three consecutive World Cup tournaments (could have been 4 if he had not injured in Milan, where he also ruined his "pretty face") on the way to becoming the Three Lions' most capped outfield player.
“To this day, one of my proudest achievements is captaining my country. I knew every time I wore the Three Lions shirt, I was not only following in a long line of great players, I was also representing every fan that cared passionately about their country. I’m honoured to represent England both on and off the pitch."
Along with six Premier League titles and one Champions League success, Beckham conquered La Liga in his final season in Spain and won the MLS championship twice (not so many trophies, to be honest).
“I wouldn’t have achieved what I have done today without my family. I’m grateful for my parents’ sacrifice, which made me realise my dreams, and I owe everything to Victoria and the kids, who have given me the inspiration and support to play at the highest level for such a long period. I want to thank all my team-mates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed.”
Beckham has two games to come before the end of the season, the last home match of his career being this Saturday.
He said: "Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love. However, I feel like I’m starting a new adventure and I’m genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I’m fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it’s my time to give back.”
Leading the tributes to Beckham, FA chairman David Bernstein said: "In the week following Sir Alex Ferguson retiring, which came as a bit of a shock, now we have the iconic David Beckham coming out of the game. It’s unexpected even though he is getting to mature years for a footballer. He is an iconic figure in the game and produced wonderful performances for his clubs. When you look at his playing and work for England, no one would ever accuse him of being unpatriotic and not giving everything for his country. He is a real loss to the game and I am sure the FA will want to embrace him and to get him closely associated with the organisation. I would personally wish him every luck and success — he will be quite a loss to the game.”


Probably today also Bradley Wiggins retired, from the Giro d'Italia. Too difficult for him here.

Liam & Noel want Mancini to stay

LONDON - Oh there's a reason why Manchester City ridiculously lost the FA Cup vs Wigan. City fake fan (also Oasis fake fan) Noel Gallagher was at the stadium... classic Noel the jinx. He supported England 2018... (Russia won). His song for England at Euro 2012... and said England beat Italy... (Italy dominated). He said Mancini is a magician... (then an absurd last position in Champions). Presented City jersey 2013... (won nothing, unlike 2011 and 2012). Liam had presented the previous jersey and was at the stadium when City won (both Cup and league), without Noel (he was at 3 games, 3 defeats). City spoke about Noel for one week, 2 other defeats.
I was drinking the same Bud beer in bottle Noel was drinking in the same moment when City lost...

The Gallagher brothers may have been at odds for years – but there is one thing Liam and Noel can agree on and that is that Roberto Mancini should remain as manager of their beloved Manchester City.
The former Oasis pair were both at Wembley – separately - to watch City lose the FA Cup final to Wigan and put on record their support for Mancini.
Mancini’s days at City looked numbered after it was reported over the weekend that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini was being lined up at the Etihad.
But both Gallagher brothers want to see the Italian remain at the club.
Speaking before the final, Beady Eye frontman Liam told ESPN: ‘I think Mancini should stay. Mancini has won us the league for the first time in 40 years, as well as The FA Cup.
‘I’m not into this [idea of] getting rid of people, you need some consistency, so I’m all for Mancini.'

And older brother Noel seemed to be singing from the same song sheet as he backed Mancini to stay after the defeat to Wigan.
He told FA TV: ‘What really annoys me is losing gives every justification for Mancini to lose his job. It gives people a reason to do it, which is a shame because I think he should stay.’
Before the game Noel had been full of confidence, boldly predicting that City could win with eight men with either Sergio Aguero or Carlos Tevez netting a hat-trick.
He said: ‘We should beat this lot with eight men and I think we are going to see a hat-trick today, either Carlos or Aguero.’

I don't agree, he should be sacked.

sir Bradley Wiggins @ Giro d'Italia +Beady Milan

MILAN - New dates added: Beady Eye @ birthday of Ibiza Rocks, with deeejay Zane, 17 July +Mallorca Rocks birthday.
Liam Gallagher's friend, Oasis-Pretty Green fan Bradley Marc Wiggins (born in Belgium, Liam: "vive le Belgium" :), he's a mod and gold medalist at various Olympic Games, trying to win the Tour of Italy (from 4 until 26 May), he never won it.  I didn't know he can speak Italian well. The new Pope blessed the "maglia rosa", pink jersey. 
Today a bit difficult stage in the mountains (recently Bradley is often angry during the stages, but smiling out of competition). His weak point is under the rain, which is hilarious for a Britishman, lol.
On Saturday a time trial, as we say "bread for the teeth" of Bradley, he could probably become "pink jersey" (now it's Paolini, Italian from Milan, debuting @ Giro at 36 years old). 
Mark Cavendish with McLaren bike already won 2 stages.
In 2014 the Tour of Italy will start in Northern Ireland (Belfast) for 3 stages.
Didn't follow this sport for many years, disappointed by doping (Armstrong, etc.)
When I was a boy (now I'm a girl ahaha), at Oasis' times in the 90's they mocked me at school 'cause I was a fan of cycling (a sport "for old people"), apart from a blonde girl who was always singing a Giro d'Italia song with me ;D ("e intanto gira e vaaaa...", la canzone più bella del Giro, una di quelle di Paolo Belli, quella dei primi anni '90)




from the official AC Milan channel, Beady Eye's new song.
on Sunday Milan-Roma
(the GAME then even had to be interrupted for racist abuse to Mario Balotelli from Roma fans, famously shite people)

Beady Eye illuminati?


MILAN - You remember all the things about the media darling Noel Gallagher's illuminati. But Liam does not belong to them, in fact the media still dislike him... (they talk a lot, but their attitude is generally negative, they take him too seriously and build stories from one of his funny sentences, and of course they don't even know him personally). Liam now just wants to mock Noel, making fun of him. 
There are clear references in Beady Eye's new stuff (the eye of a girl, the "only one eye open" - the image for Second bite of the apple - and the album, the woman lying on the floor, then in Flick of the Finger "have we decided if we like being part of the plan", "the ghost of a bad idea", "the future gets written today", etc., Start anew, "Got the whole world in our hands (wouldn't expect this from Beady Eye) come on take a chance and start anew")
About lying down:
  • start of Oasis, Definitely Maybe: Liam on the floor. 
  • end of Oasis, last singles: I'm outta time, video: Liam on the ground. 
  • and Falling down (published on Woman's day): woman on the floor, with "only one eye open" (and also the cameraman). See video below.
  • Beady Eye new album: woman on the floor...
ILLUMINATI Noel (BIRDS) totally American album, released on: 17.10.11, 1+7+1+1+1 = 11
Death of you and me: 21.8 (11), 2+1+8 = 11
Aka what a life: 11.9 (11), 1+1+9 = 11
If I had a gun: 26.12 (11), 2+6+1+2 = 11
Dream on: 12.3.2012, 1+2+3+2+1+2 = 11
out of illuminati?
Beady EYE's turn (with American producer)
first single Second bite of the apple 30.4.13, 3+4+1+3 = 11 
second album BE: 10.6.13, 1+6+1+3 = 11

it's the way to have an immediate success: Noel "sold the soul for the second time, 'cause the man, he don't pay him..." ...really weird lyrics eh? what could that nonsense mean? 
Be Here Now was very successful for the people (fans love it) though it wasn't good for the experts (Noel too...even "shite", always repeating it wasn't good, as if he wants to underline that) and it was 21 August written everywhere (2+1+8=11). 
Definitely Maybe (to be honest I never adored it and I think it's always overrated by everybody), first album that needed and had an instant success, 30 August (3+8=11). 
Oasis last single (Falling Down): 8.3.2009 (on the internet), 8+3 = 11, 2+9 = 11 chaos.
Would-have-been LAST Oasis gig: 30.8.2009 (Milan) = illuminati vs illuminati 3+8=11, 2+9=11... chaos

Another characteristic is the "risk to be killed". 
media darling Noel ("better than the Beatles" yeeeeees in your dreams), the poor victim: 1) a nuts fan entering his house (and having breakfast) 2) the poisonous snake they found @ a gig 3) the glandular fever he had for months, the brain scan, the sick Noel is.
And if Beady Eye joined the illuminati, here it is: 1) Liam and the blue M&M nut (allergy), a really strange story, not only for the fact it was a blue one.
If you know the story about John Lennon belonging to the illuminati (and a fan killing him) and his famous photo with a flower in his eye, it seems like the members must have some story of risk, as a rule.

UPDATE: it can be that Beady Eye were offered to join the illuminati but they refused. "It doesn't matter if all of these tickets are sold". The media generally still dislike them.



Video from last year (recently he repeated things about becoming a knight... in many cases it seems like he's slowly admitting everything). 
The God Horus = sun... (Falling Down). When he talked about Downfall, he quoted the tickets they had for the gig... (we weren't very happy, Noel... nothing to laugh about). It wasn't only Jimmy Page but also Robert Plant. "Nearest recruiting station"... and he was at a gas station. Also a bit strange that he always said he doesn't believe in God, but often names him...

more to add soon

Alan McGee launches new record label

HAY-ON-WYE - Alan: ‘Recently I found myself reinvigorated by new music again after being 5 years away from music living in rural Wales, and from which there has been much talk about how I will return to music. As recently talked about in the press, my original plan was to do a deal with major label backing in Japan. But when it came down to it I realised that I didn't want to come back to music through a major music label - that's not what I want to be part of. That's when I had a chat with Iain McNay from Cherry Red and we quite quickly put our heads together and developed between us a much better deal for 359 Music which will be a joint venture with Cherry Red.
The first ever person to ever approach me about music when I was 19 was Iain McNay from Cherry Red. That was 1980 and 33 years later Cherry Red still continues to send me publishing cheques for songs I wrote then. To me that just proves nothing but honesty and diligence. To me it makes sense and it excites me - it's where it all started and where I will have my, more than likely, last record label.
My vision for 359 Music is a launch pad for new talent and some ignored older talent. We intend to release on average a dozen new bands per year every year - maybe more if I find a lot of new talent I like. Hopefully some of the artists will stick around and make numerous albums with 359 but some will go on to other things and that is just nature of the musical beast.
Due to technology the world is much smaller these days and 359 Music will be run from rural Wales by phone and computer and the day to day engine room will be run by the Cherry Red team in London. So basically the day to day logistics of 359 Music will be handled by Cherry Red Records and the A&R signing policy and creative decisions will be my domain.
There is no agenda of 'let's be the biggest like Creation Records' - if in 5 years’ time people who I respect and who love music can turn round to me and say 359 Music has put out some great music then that to me will be success. There really needs to be an outlet for new music artists that have been shut out by the system and I hope 359 Music will be that outlet.
If you are an artist and want to be considered for 359 Music send an mp3 to INFOAT359MUSIC@AOL.COM (INFO@359MUSIC.COM) and I will personally listen.
“So there you have it - 359 Music. I am extremely happy to be working again with my friend Iain McNay and to be again involved in the Cherry Red family after 33 years’”
Iain McNay: ‘Alan and I go back a long time, over 30 years in fact. Cherry Red celebrate their 35th birthday next month and we just continue to grow and grow. We released 623 albums (all on CD) last year, mostly catalogue but with an increasing number of new recordings. I only know of two other labels that have survived the late ‘70s Independent breakthrough intact in the UK; that’s Ace and Beggars. I like to think of the three of us as the ‘A,B and C’ of British Independent labels.
I have always admired Alan’s passion and belief in the music he loves. His maverick side will sit well with Cherry Red’s committed Independent stance. I have no doubt we will have a great adventure together. One thing is for certain, working with Alan McGee is never going to be boring…..’


Creation Records was set up in 1983. Its roster included Oasis, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Super Furry Animals. McGee sold half the label to Sony in 1992, before dissolving it fully in 1999 to form his own label Poptones, which signed The Hives. Poptones wound down in 2007, with McGee citing financial reasons.
He will curate Tokyo Rocks, which is set to take place later this year in Japan, after being cancelled then reborn. My Bloody Valentine are scheduled to headline the festival.

Beady Eye Start anew video


MILAN - (Dreaming of some space - reversed). Final images: some of my "anticipatiiions" months ago: golden brass, horns for Beady Eye's new album inspired by Milan Futurism (Hines skyscraper and square by Argentinian of Italian origins Pelli, @ Porta Nuova = new door) and the place of the would-have-been Oasis last gig, 30 August 2009 (Milan Expo 2015, that will be about food), before the "5 year break" announced by Noel Gallagher BEFORE the Oasis split... enough said). Along with the piece of Moon @ Leonardo Da Vinci museum. Milan was also the place of "Beady Eye" first gig (30 May 2000 without Noel) and where Pretty Green started. Album cover by Harri Peccinotti (Milano Pirelli calendars). 
Liam is totally right when he says Noel planned the split (and then blamed everyone), some people suffer from short memory... or just don't listen.

Andy: "my favourite vocal on the album. It's an epic: starts off as an acoustic tune then ends up as like Neil Young in Boca Juniors' stadium in 35°C heat, with fireworks going off."

Lyrics (to be completed)

Wipe away these tears,
Please don't be upset,
Tell me all your fears,
This I will address,

Got the whole world in our hands,
Come on take a chance,

Noel's desperate smurfs

LONDON - Noel's fans just continue shitting like High shitting pigeons. Gli uccellini rincoglioniti che scagazzano.
Another post about them... seriously they're the worst music fans I've ever heard, again: they don't even listen to what their idol says, they're totally blinded.
Sure there's also a language problem, as many people who speak a few English, can get less of the thousand things the media darling says.
By the way, he was right (he's not always wrong, of course) a couple of recent times when he insulted them. They're total idiots. Well everyone's got the fans he deserves... I'd prefer a few good ones.

This is lazy ass Noel Gallagher's new album... ready for the year 2020.
For his lack of inspiration, I suggest to take material from his fans bullshit... there's loads of stuff.
Let them comment and vent their jealousy. After all they should find a way to spend their time between 2 "solo" Noel's albums, that is at least 4-5 years. 2 years have already passed and recently he even said there are no albums on the cards.
  • last 3 Oasis albums: a few songs by Noel (last album in 2008), some by Liam, Andy, Gem
  • Noel "solo" in 2011 (with discarded songs from 2001 and 2004, co-written with Gem)
I noticed several times, this thing of the "Smurfs" makes them mad.... ahahahaha Showing their superficiality, it seems that above everything they care A LOT about names, mocking "Beady Eye" (not copied) and "Pretty Green copied from Paul Weller" (for their ignorance, High Flying Birds is copied too, from Jefferson Airplane).
The media always take very seriously, too seriously, what Liam says (as for the Justin Bieber sentence). Most of the times, they take some funny answer (to what journalists ask...) and make whole stories out of context.
This was just a joke by Liam... but they're always offended by the truth. In this case, Noel is short like a smurf... (like his idol Berlusconi) ...as Liam says: even Prince is taller than Noel ahahahaha
Also, they don't even notice the way Noel talks about Liam (they think Noel is an angel), with that twat attitude for years.
Recently, Noel: “Liam probably doesn’t know what effeminate means"... sure Noel knows more about effeminate, always being on Grazia Magazine and singing in falsetto voice (his fans don't even know what it means) to reach the high notes.
He was referring to the Smiths, I remember well NOEL considered them "too gay"...
He always acts as he if he was more intelligent than others (years ago he was proud to be ignorant), when he can't even read or write a music score.

LIAM'S VOICE

There are still people slamming Liam's voice because it's not what it used to be.
Sure, Liam's voice is now BETTER. It's professional rock'n'roll (it doesn't need to be perfect) and not innocent as an unexperienced kid. He's singing more creatively and not as monotone as Noel told him to sing in Oasis. See that "pocket" in the new song, and just that "come on , show what you love now" is cooler than anything from Noel.
Also, there was Noel keeping a lower volume for Liam during the gigs, high for the instruments. Liam was always complaining about that.
Fans poiting out Liam's voice got worse, seem to forget how Noel's songs got worse... in many Oasis albums too. Nowhere near Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory. Maybe because the Griffiths were helping him... (Is there a reason why he's not playing many songs from those albums? why not Live Forever? Rock'n'Roll Star? Cigarettes and Alcohol? Slide Away? very defining songs... the whole first album was sung by Liam).
Many people talk without having been to a Beady Eye gig. Nobody complained, on the contrary the performances are better than Oasis in the last years. Beady Eye played Morning Glory and Rock'n'Roll Star last year, and they were great, sounded like Oasis with no difference. Noel's contribution in live shows was the backing vocals. You know, the girl with virgin voice singing behind.
Comparing Liam's with Noel's voice saying Noel's is better is totally idiotic. Liam has been singing hard for 20 years, Noel not really the same, he's no singer.
Liam is not performing his Oasis songs 'cause he knows Noel's songs were successful thanks to Liam too, and he wants to show it.
Those people are useless impotent midgets in their bathrobes who are simply jealous. What have they done?
They laugh about Liam. If he's really shite as those people say, it's clear the fall of a great one is the happiness of the mediocres.

Meanwhile, of course every article about Liam on general websites is full of negative comments from people who are no Oasis fans and don't know anything about the Gallaghers (apart from what they learn from the media). They spend a lot of time to comment (as if anyone cared about them). I hate some bands and of course I don't even read articles about them, commenting is not even in my fantasy.
I dislike Noel too but commenting about him is different, because it's about Oasis, and Noel is always telling lies about Liam and band mates.

I simply can't find any more cool songs in Noel's music, it's boring. Noel of 20 years ago would laugh at how he is today.
Noel fan: "I'd rather eat every once in a while in a good restaurant (Noels HFB) than have Beady Eye's crappy burgers every day".
Wow calling a good restaurant all those HFB discarded songs from 12 and 9 years ago, it's like eating expired food (not to mention the covers). I see the results in his fans comments... medicines are not even useful aymore.

Noel fans say Beady Eye can't make Noel music.
Sure, they can't make his same depressing music, we agree about that.
Noel's fans are talking shit that way hoping their companions won't buy the album. Then of course they'll buy it. All these "fans" hating Beady Eye will buy their album 'cause it's their songs making them feel cool.
Noel's clearly can't.
We will remember to do the same when Noel will find some other song from old sessions (co-written with Gem) and publish his second album in 2020.

There are people who seriously think Oasis would have existed without Liam. For the record, if a Martian is visiting, he should know Oasis was LIAM's band, who also gave the name Oasis, and was the frontman, singer, icon, etc. above all : heart and soul, forever. It's history, something you can't change.
Noel fan: "I think cigarettes and alcohol wouldve been a classic with or without liam."
Of course it would've been a classic: I mean Get It On, Cigs is copied from T Rex.
Pigeon: "Noel will continue to write those Oasis songs for HFB".
They'll continue to sound nowhere near Oasis, but covers.

It wasn't only Noel that created the "Oasis sound"... admitted by the same Noel. In an interview he was saying after the first 3 albums they largely changed their sound due to Andy and Gem as they are "indie kids at heart".

About picking sides, it was Noel DEFINING sides. Something like: everything on one side (Liam, Pretty Green, management, band members...even fans) and God on the other one. He was sure to be successful anyway (then he wasn't really THAT successful), being a media darling. And illuminati...

Liam understood the strategies of media... Noel told lies to promote his album.
Liam was not really serious when he said he could quit music if the album flops (he knows it won't flop), anyway there would be nothing strange in a 40 year old who has already been successful for a long time and taking a break, and he's still got the fashion and also cinema soon. What's Noel got?
Beady Eye dumped their (Noel's) management because it was terrible... Also, the label is big now, Columbia.

Noel fan calls "a bonus" the Oasis songs Noel plays... a bonus of 10 songs, half of the set.
And he had said he was going to play 3 only.
And he had said he was not going to play songs that were sung by Liam.
Just a few of many lies he told (see column on the right).

I often read (also from people who are no Oasis fans) that Liam "has no friends"... ahahahaha... (saying something against Noel = having no friends) ...apart from seeing Liam with many different people around, for their info, the one left alone is called Noel. It was Noel leaving Oasis (3 times), not the other way round.
That's why one should refer to Beady Eye as Oasis, and to the Birds as Noel.

"You wouldn't believe how many more friends Noel has than Liam. Noel is still in a stable marriage, too."
how many more friends has one with imaginary friends saying to the media he's always meeting people, who never meet him?
I wouldn't bet on that "stable marriage", as even Liam has Sara's number...
It's YEARS Liam is in a stable marriage, Noel 3 years later. And his wife hates his music. That's not a good point for a musician.
Noel alone is lost. One who isn't lost doesn't repeat he always meets former Oasis members (also his imaginary friend Gem) when he never does.

A Neapolital soul stealing things as Noel is the only one who was able to steal from a Neapolitan man, Pino Daniele... (Death of you and me from Je so' pazzo). Usually it's the other way round.
Pinoel Danoel... he's a good artist, but in the past he copied some songs... it's hilarious that Noel copied him.

About the new song they say: "I couldn't even listen to the whole song."
That's Noel's fans problem: they don't even listen.

3rd Beady Eye song by song

LONDON - About Noel Gallagher: "Splitting up Oasis then putting half the fucking songs in your fucking set, it's schizophrenic. 'If you want to lay fucking Oasis songs put the band back together and stop being a fucking gobshite. But he hasn't got the balls to do [his band] High Flying Birds on his own, that's just the nature of the man."
At Noel's gigs there would have been half of the people... still, his gigs don't sound anywhere near Oasis.

3rd post with details track by track

There’s talk of lyrics about Noel. There’s talk that it’s the most far out Liam’s gone since he gave up sandbag-sized portions of illegal substances up his conk. There’s talk that there’s a guest vocal from Justin Bieber, now Liam’s a confirmed Belieber (ok, there isn’t that). But there are a heck of a lot of questions about what Beady Eye’s new album, ‘BE’ contains. I had an early listen to find out what’s what…

Flick Of The Finger
This, you’ll know. You’ll know that it’s probably the furthest out Liam’s gone, musically, since Be Here Now. But it’s rather more enjoyable – brass from the people who do brass for Spiritualized (as I posted) and Primal Scream, spoken word bit read out by, erm, Fonejacker, this really is something new. As is Liam’s voice – mixed high and dry through the album, it sounds like he’s been gargling honey since the throat-rip Different Gear, Still Speeding sessions.

Soul Love
Listeners might be expecting the floodgates to open after Flick Of The Finger, which guitarist Gem Archer has called the “calling card” of the band’s new era. However, Soul Love is restrained, despite a world of sounds from producer Dave Sitek bubbling under the sinister chords. Muffled shotgun sounds and velvet-y organ presses whip up a feeling of intense mystery as Liam croons, “Get up off your knees my friend, promise never to pretend you’re the apple of my eye, spread your wings and learn to fly.” We’re a long way from Four Letter Word here.

Face The Crowd
On which the first truly big riff kicks in. And boy does it kick in – right from the off, then repeats, non-stop, relentlessly as this Beatles-y burble careers along. Liam sings of “playing to the gallery when you know it’s time to face the crowd” over Stonesy handclaps, with a Zeppy wig-out from Gem Archer. There’s just enough time for a space-rock outro so we all know Sitek’s still in control, though…

Second Bite Of The Apple
With its gloomy, clickety-clackety percussion and more echo than your average airplane storage facility, somewhat brilliantly, the first single sounds like something plucked from Eels’ back catalogue.

Soon Come Tomorrow
The first obviously Oasis-esque song on the album, the gentle chords that brush through it draw a line back to the Morning Glory days. A country-ish momentum gathers quickly, however, and despite an extremely Our Kid-esque guitar squall solo the song ends up sounding like something pulled from the pocket of Ryan Adams rather than his good friend Noel Gallagher.

Iz Rite
The upbeat strummer of the album, and despite its floaty production one on which more lines are drawn to Oasis. The cello flourishes plant a shadow memory of Don’t Look Back In Anger, although admittedly this is a very stylistically different song. “When you call my name it takes away my pain, so only love remains… just say it again” Liam croons on the sunny chorus.

I’m Just Saying
After the feelgood vibes, there’s the fighting talk. “You might think the grass is greener, here I am on the other side,” he spits on the heaviest, most rollocking rock number on the album. A reference to Noel’s solo endeavours? Almost certainly. “A 20/20 visionary would never waste a single day,” he later states, then declares he’s “feeling fine, this is my time to shine. It’s not too late, the future’s getting underway.” He never was short on confidence, mind.

Don’t Brother Me
And after the fighting talk, is this the peace offering? It’s hard to tell. This song is obviously about Noel: “Always in The Sun, with your Number One… sick of all your lying, your scheming and your crying,” Liam sings. And there’s the fact that he’s explicitly said it’s about Noel. But later, over heavy footstep crunch-effects and tightly-wound acoustics he asks him to, “Come on and give peace a chance, take my hand, be a man.” So, is Noel invited round for Christmas or not, then?

Shine A Light
Sandpaper-dry drums cut right through this fast-paced country-ish number, with just the odd Super Furry Animals-esque electro-squiggle here and there before a big, Lennon-flavoured piano drop. After repeated invitations to “Come on, shine a light,” Liam implores us to “Universalise”. Now that is an awesome new word.

Ballroom figured
Dare we suggest this one’s about Noel too? “Did you ever loan me that song? Did you ever know me at all? Listen to the world going round, looking through a hole in the wall… shoving our loving away… never once looking to say, we got the ride of our lives,” Liam sings on the most production-bare song on the album, with barely more than acoustic guitar for him to bed his vocals on. To be fair this song could be about some girlfriend or other he had in his teens, but hey.

Start Anew
A real sun-through-the-shrubs moment, as uplifting organs underpin Liam singing, “Help me understand, take me as I am, I change my point of view, anything for you.” Wind sweeps through Glasvegas-y guitar washes, the gentle acoustic kicks back and forth, and we end on one of the most tender moments Liam’s ever helmed. The last line he sings on album? “Come on take a chance and start anew, me and you, me and you...” Dare we suggest that it too is directed at a certain… ok, sorry, just draw your own conclusions, eh?

12. Dreaming of Some Space
13. The World’s Not Set in Stone YEEEAAHHH
14. Back After The Break

Beady Eye ready for battle

LONDON - Liam Gallagher reckons Beady Eye are “ready for battle and tickling people” ahead of new album BE.
After previewing psychedelic first single Second Bite of the Apple on Radio 1, Liam, explained their new spacious sound.
He said: “I wanted to sound like I sound around the house with a guitar, it’s like being bollock naked.”
Producer Dave Sitek was instrumental in making the record. Liam explained: “His music was blaring, I love it loud. All the other producers we worked with are a bit precious.
“In fact he even hired in more speakers.”
The album will be a number 1.

Liam has revealed that the title of the forthcoming Beady Eye album – 'BE' – was not his first choice.
The former Oasis frontman said he instead wanted to title the album 'Universal Gleam' but was outvoted by his band and label.
"[The title] is nothing to do with me," Liam said. "I wanted to call it 'Universal Gleam'. But at Columbia [their record label], a lot of people got their knickers in a twist, putting out a record called Universal Gleam when we're not on [the label] Universal. So yeah, it's 'BE'. 'BE'. 'BE' who you are. 'BE' whatever you fucking want to be. 'BE'. Fucking bumble-'BE'. I find that a bit more hippy-ish than fucking Universal Gleam.
Asked to explain what, exactly, Universal Gleam means, he explained: "Universal Gleam was when John [Lennon] and George [Harrison] met up with [Beatles publicist] Derek Taylor when Brian Epstein died. They went to meet him and he just said that they had a universal gleam about them. I wanted to call it that, but other people were going, 'No no no', so I went, 'Look, call it what you fucking want.'"
ahahahaha (the people always take him so seriously, he's just funny and not a dictator as Noel)


Liam Gallagher's former Oasis bandmate Bonehead has cast doubt on recent rumours that the Beady Eye star has had a falling out with The Stone Roses after bad behaviour at the band's Dubai gig.
A source recently told ("a source said" = bullshit, no name = sign of bullshit) The Sun (also called: The Bullshit) that Liam had a falling out with his Manchester heroes, after he said some things in Dubai that were 'out of order' - and even apparently had to be escorted away at one of the band's concerts.
Bonehead spoke out against the reports. In an email to NME, he wrote, "I wasn't in Dubai with Liam, I was in Barcelona with him for the first gig at the Razzmatazz, [he was] totally well behaved and a good night was had by all."
He went on to add, "First I've heard he was kicked out in Dubai, I'm sure I'd know if he was though. I don't believe a word of it, he was out with his wife and kid."
They don't know what to write to sell more.

It was the Stone Roses asking Liam and Beady Eye to support them. They also asked Noel Gallagher to sell hot dogs.
The Sun (and then the Italian Corriere della Sera) the other day also reported about Mario Balotelli offering his girlfriend to Real Madrid players. Of course another fake story that only idiots and desperate housewives could believe, officially denied by AC Milan, just like the stories about Liam ejected from pubs because drunk, denied by the people working there.
