Noel Gallagher Explains Why Seinfeld Is The Best And Alt-J Can Fuck Off

When we spoke with Noel Gallagher recently, the ex-Oasis guitarist had harsh words for Beyoncé and Kanye West. Gallagher loves to run his mouth -- and I love to hear him running it -- so of course he had some more vitriol to spew when Rolling Stone caught up with him, and of… More »

Q&A: Noel Gallagher On Kanye, Beck, Beyoncé, Moz, Jack White, Black Keys, & More

Back when I was first becoming an obsessive music fan, Oasis were big for me. I loved everything: the classic albums, of course, but also the mid-period stuff most people dismiss. As I got older, those last two very underrated albums were special to me, too. I sought out all sorts of Oasis minutiae, from… More »

Noel Gallagher Would Reunite Oasis For A Ton Of Money

Noel Gallagher would reunite Oasis, but only for the right price. In a new interview with Q, he said: "Nobody has made us an offer. I've been in the same room as Liam, and even then nobody's said, 'Weren't Oasis great? You should re-form.' But if I was ever going to do it, it… More »

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “Ballad Of The Mighty I” (Feat. Johnny Marr) Video

"Ballad Of The Mighty I" is a surprisingly dancey Johnny Marr collaboration from Noel Gallagher's upcoming album Chasing Yesterday, one that matches a hi-hat-heavy drum track and infectiously snaky guitar parts with a soaring symphonic background. It's an unprecedented sound for Gallagher, and its video is just as unexpected. Gallagher has been outspoken about how… More »

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “Do The Damage” Video

"Do The Damage" doesn't appear on Chasing Yesterday, the forthcoming sophomore album from Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. Instead, the peppy space-rock number is the B-side to "In The Heat Of The Moment," the album's first single. That didn't stop Gallagher from making a video for it! Gallagher appears in director MikeMore »

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “In The Heat Of The Moment”

It's been almost three years to the day since Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds released their self-titled debut album, and today, they return with a new single and the announcement of a sophomore LP, Chasing Yesterday. That album title seems so ripe for mockery that I almost wonder if it's a pre-emptive strike: There's nothing… More »

30 Rock Stars Discuss Their Favorite Smiths Songs

By my count, the Smiths only recorded 74 songs during their brief, brilliant career, so the concept of choosing their 30 greatest seems kind of dubious: That's two-fifths of their catalog! Just the same, a new feature in Uncut promises "The Smiths' 30 greatest songs -- as chosen by the band and their famousMore »

The Sound Of Someone Losing The Plot: Britpop’s Big Comedown And What Came Next

Oasis and Blur may mark the official beginning of Britpop with the twin classics of Definitely Maybe and Parklife, respectively, but some people -- particularly, seemingly, in music-writer circles -- claim Pulp's Different Class as the genre's pinnacle. It's the smartest of the bunch, as intricate and sprawling as Parklife, and armed with just a… More »

Damon Albarn & Noel Gallagher: A Timeline

As resident anglophile Michael Nelson explained in his tremendous introduction to Britpop Week, the era's feuds are almost as essential to Britpop history as the music. And no conflict defined the Britpop era more than the rivalry between Blur and Oasis -- more specifically, the war of egos between the bands' primary songwriters, Blur'… More »

Damon Albarn Says New Gorillaz Album Almost Definitely Happening, Noel Gallagher Collab A “Distinct Possibility”

Sometimes I think Damon Albarn is trolling me personally. One of the first things I wrote for Stereogum was a Counting Down of his non-Blur projects (it was, in fact, the first installment of that now-regular feature), and I opened it by saying: "Damon Albarn doesn't deserve our love. We want Blur and he… More »
