Gallagher Bans Nme From Oasis Gigs

NOEL GALLAGHER has declared war on British rock magazine NME - for starting a "juvenile" feud between OASIS and THE ENEMY.
The Wonderwall hitmaker has banned the publication's journalists from attending his gigs this summer (09) and is enlisting fans' help to enforce the restriction.
Gallagher is furious after the magazine published a story alleging The Enemy frontman Tom Clarke had criticised Oasis just weeks before the two bands were due to tour together.
The report prompted Oasis singer Liam Gallagher to threaten to move Clarke's band to the bottom of the bill - but Clarke insisted the "feud" was fabricated and described the story as "complete and utter b**locks".
And Noel Gallagher has joined Clarke in slamming the magazine's tactics.
He writes on the official Oasis blog, "There's been an attempt by the NME to try and start some juvenile, pathetic feud between the bands in the run up to these gigs. Can I assure everyone that there is not and never will be anything between the working classes and its heroes.
"If I personally see any weasel from the NME at these gigs (which is highly unlikely) they'll be getting escorted off site. In fact, you could do me a favour here. If you see an NME journalist at any of the gigs (and let's face it, they're pretty easy to spot; they don't stray far from hospitality, wear God-awful clothes - particularly the shoes - got dreadful hair and that kind of "mug me" look about them), give 'em a clip round the ear-hole from me and tell 'em to behave."
