Blur's Alex James Hopes Oasis Get Back Together: "They Can Support Us"


Alex James Liam Gallagher Blur Oasis

Few Britpop figures were as memorable as Blur’s Alex James. With his trademark bass guitar pose of one foot on the front-of-stage speaker and cigarette nonchalantly dangling out of his mouth, he’s always admitted to loving every second of fame.

Now, in a new interview with The Independent, James has suggested that there could be room for both his reformed band and a reunited Oasis in today’s music scene, even going so far as to say that the two former rivals could play together in the future. But only if Oasis supported them!

Noel Gallagher Oasis

Tickets for Noel Gallagher's arena tour in 2015 are still available, despite some outlets reporting they had sold out in just 10 minutes. The former Oasis frontman will take his new outfit, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds on an extensive tour in March, in support of his new album Chasing Yesterday.

Tickets for the jaunt went on-sale via Gallagher's website at 9am on Friday (October 17, 2014) although the Daily Telegraph reported that every single UK date sold out within minutes. However, Contactmusic.com believes that tickets - especially seated - are still available for shows in London, Manchester and Nottingham. Only a show at Glasgow's Hydro Arena has sold out completely.

Metallica To Cover 'Wonderwall' At Glastonbury, But What Are The Best Oasis Covers?


Metallica Jay Z Oasis Maroon 5 Jake Bugg Robbie Williams Keane Weezer

In a similar fashion to the announcement of Jay Z in 2008, metal titans Metallica’s headline slot at the iconic Glastonbury Festival has been met with a wave of criticism and derision from commentators who have deemed the Metallica’s headline position as both a lazy, predictable booking and one that is incompatible with Glastonbury’s demographic. However, whereas criticism towards Jay Z in the vein of what was unleashed by the Gallagher brothers was a scathing attack on hip hop as a genre, laced with a degree of barely concealed racism, Metallica’s backlash largely stems from elsewhere.

Firstly, this is a band that hasn’t produced an album of any merit for well over a decade and what’s more, considering they were announced long after tickets had sold out, how many of Glastonbury’s middle class bohemians will actually want to watch the band? Metallica have themselves responded to the criticism by announcing they may open their set with a cover of “Wonderwall”, copying Jay Z’s act of protest back in 2008. However, it does appear that Jay Z’s version carried a greater amount of symbolism, given that it was the Gallagher brothers who were the most vocal opponents of his appearance.

Is Pulp's 'Common People' Really The Best Britpop Anthem?


Pulp Jarvis Cocker Oasis Blur

Pulp's Common People has been named the ultimate Britpop anthem by BBC6 Music listeners, beating the likes of The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony and Oasis's Wonderwall. More than 300,000 listeners voted for the track to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 90's genre - which created various personalities but very few decent bands.

Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye played an unbilled set at the Glastonbury Festival on Friday morning (June 28, 2013), officially opening three days of music set to be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons. The show took place on The Other Stage at the rather early time of 11am, though thousands made the journey from their soaked tents to watch the former Oasis man.

Though Beady Eye's show did not feature in the programme, frotman Liam has dropped a major hint earlier in the week, tweeting, "11am Friday - BE there or BE square.LG," while photographs showed the band travelling to Glastonbury on the train. Gallagher had always vowed never to return to the Pilton site following his former band's headlining set in 2004, telling The Sun, "The sound is s*** and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you're playing.It's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Liam Gallagher was given the enviable job of opening the 2013 Glastonbury Festival with a surprise set on The Other Stage on Friday morning (June 28, 2013). The singer, who aired his dismay for the festival following his former band Oasis' set in 2004, arrived on-stage and immediately launched into Flick of the Finger, a recent single for Beady Eye.

The cloudy weather and early start did nothing to deter the famous Mancunian, who was on typically brash form. "It's never too early for a bit of Rock'n'Roll aggro, is it?" asked Gallagher as his new band launched into Morning Glory, an Oasis hit written by his brother Noel Gallagher.

Liam Gallagher Eats His Words: Beady Eye To Play Glastonbury?


Liam Gallagher Beady Eye Oasis

After Oasis headlined Glastonbury in 2004, lead singer Liam Gallagher vowed he'd never return to play there again, telling radio station XFM that "The sound is s**t and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you're playing. They don't put any money into the PA and it's just full of f**king idiots." The volatile frontman added: "Now it's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Will Beady Eye Play A Secret Glasto Set?

Well seems something changed in Mr. Gallagher's heart -now the band have their new album BE  to promote and The Sun reports his post-Oasis band, Beady Eye, will perform a secret set somewhere onsite, someday this weekend at midday. Reports of a surprise gig are yet to be confirmed by the festival or the band, but Gallagher himself was apparently spotted getting off the train at Castle Cary - the closest train station to the festival. The star was allegedly seen wearing sunglasses and emerging from the first class carriage.

How Did It Come To This? Liam Gallagher And Robbie Set For 'The Voice'


Liam Gallagher Robbie Williams Nicole Appleton Oasis Beady Eye

We bet while Liam Gallagher was travelling the world with Oasis in the heady 1990s, he didn't expect to appear on a dodgy singing contest with Jessie J, Tom Jones and that bloke from The Script. Ok, so he's not auditioning, but his band Beady Eye will take to the BBC stage on Saturday night (May 15, 2013) to sing live on 'The Voice.'

There is a problem.

Liam's sort-of arch-nemesis Robbie Williams - who isn't really his arch-nemesis - will also be on-set to record a pre-recorded performance with Dizzee Rascal. Heads will roll! Probably. Worried bosses are the BBC are apparently keen to keep both parties on separate sides of Pinewood Studios, despite the fact that Liam, nor Robbie are that bothered. A show source told The Sun: "Relations between Robbie and Liam do seem to have become less hostile but the bosses aren't taking any chances.They had hoped they wouldn't be in the studio at the same time but as Robbie's tour clashed with the final, his performance has to be pre-recorded. So we have given them separate Winnebagos on either side of the studio and called in extra security to be on hand in case the pair do kick off."

Step Off A Train, All Alone At Dawn: Liam Gallagher Returns To Manchester [Pictures]

Liam Gallagher was mobbed by Oasis and Beady Eye fans as he stepped off a train at Manchester Piccadilly on Tuesday (June 11, 2013) to launch his new album BE in his hometown. Liam - wearing his trademark mac, jeans and desert shoes combo - signed autographs and posed for photographs on the train platform before heading to HMV on Market Street to launch the record.

Busy commuters stopped in their tracks and pulled out smartphones as the Manchester legend paraded through the city centre. Later, Gallagher invited 100 fans to an after-party at his designer store Pretty Green on King Street, reports the Manchester Evening News.

"On my way to Manchester centre of the universe," Liam had tweeted earlier in the day, before arriving in the north-west with band mates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock for an acoustic gig of tracks from the new album.

Liam Gallagher Would Consider Live Oasis 'Definitely Maybe' 20th Anniversary Reunion


Liam Gallagher Oasis

Liam Gallagher’s just put out a new record with his band Beady Eye but whenever he talks to the NME you just know that the chatter’s going to return to his old band, Oasis.

So it proves again in this week’s print issue of the magazine, with the younger Gallagher brother hinting that he would be open to bringing the band back. Given the whopping pay checks his pals the Stone Roses got for their reunion we’re not surprised either. "There's unfinished business there. People ask would I get Oasis back together” he told the publication. “I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of f*cking money, I'd do it for that too.” However, he did add: “I don't think we'd ever make another record. I doubt we'll ever get back together."

Gallagher suggested that it would be good to get the group back together in time for the 20th anniversary of their multi-million selling debut album Definitely Maybe. The record pushed them to huge success in the UK and paved the way for eventual global domination. It turns 20 next year and the outspoken front man commented "If we do, it'd be nice to do that f*cking thing that's coming up (the 20th anniversary) I'd be up for that. But I'd still go back to Beady Eye and Noel would go back to his thing. We could bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour."

Ibiza Daft Punk Fan Ran Up Huge Bar Tab Posing As Dance Icon


Daft Punk Oasis

Daft Punk star Thomas Bangalter has revealed how the dance duo's anonymity once backfired when a man ran up a huge bar tab in Ibiza. The dance icons' alter-egos have enabled them to keep their identities masked since their debut album Homework, though it hasn't always helped the group.

"One thing I like about the masks is that I don't have people constantly coming up to me and reminding me what I do," Bangalter told Rolling Stone. "It's nice to be able to forget, but there are occasional downsides. Several years ago in Ibiza some guy ran up exorbitant bar tabs at clubs while claiming to be me." The pair had previously revealed how their anonymity resulted in touts trying to sell them tickets to their own show at London's Astoria in 1997. 

Daft Punk returned with their No.1 single 'Get Lucky' earlier this year, which surpassed the 500,000 sales mark last week. Their new album Random Access Memories is set to break Oasis' record for the fastest-selling album in UK chart history. The Manchester band sold 650,000 copies of their record in its first week of sales in 1997 though bookmakers are offering odds of just 4/5 that the French dance icons break that record.

Liam Gallagher Went Into Anaphylactic Shock After Eating Blue M&M


Liam Gallagher Oasis Carl Barat Rizzle Kicks

It would have been slightly ironic had a blue M&M nut killed off former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher. The Manchester-born singer, who's lived the rock n' roll lifestyle for over 20 years, admitted he thought his time was up after going into anaphylactic shock during a international tour last month. The singer has since been diagnosed with a nut allergy after suffering a reaction to his favourite sweets while performing abroad.

Speaking at the launch of The Red House restaurant in south-west London, Gallagher told The Sun: "I've done some stuff over the years but never, never did I think a f****** blue M&M would be the thing that could have killed me. I was in a hotel on holiday and got in about the mini bar..I was bored and hungry, so it's what you do, man. I've always liked M&Ms so I got into them. I had a blue one..My mouth started to swell up and I could feel it tightening my throat, man. I had to go to the docs and get it checked out straight away." Pretty scary stuff indeed.

Anyway, Liam now has to carry a syringe about with him in case of emergencies, "Proper Pete Doherty gear," he added. The singer was out drinking with brother-in-law Liam Howlett, Hurts' singer Theo Hutchcraft, The Libertines guitarist Carl Barat and rappers Rizzle Kicks. The whole gang ended up in The Box nightclub in Soho.

Oasis, Time Flies 1994 - 2009 Album Review


Time flies. It certainly does. The first anniversary since Noel called time on the most infamous British band of the last two decades is nearly upon us. Three weeks on from its release, and having debuted at no.1, 'Time Flies' has now slipped down to 5th in the Top 40, although with performers selling well in the post Glastonbury week, it may jump back up come Sunday's chart.

Noel Gallagher Doubts That Live 8 Will Be Successful


Noel Gallagher Oasis Keane

Noel Gallagher has revealed that the Live 8 concert is unlikely to achieve what it set out to do - that being, convince politicians from some of the richest countries in the world to band together and wipe out the debts that poorer nations owe them. The Oasis guitarist has stated his belief that rock stars and musicians alone do not hold that sort of political sway, and they honestly do not have the power to influence the decision-makers within the G8.

Believing that all the hard work will be in vain, Gallagher explained that: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles (in Scotland) and sees Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and thinks, 'F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?'
