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 always has something entertaining to say about everything, and thankfully he's delivered more of that today in a new video interview with Noisey.

Win A Limited Edition Oasis (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? Super Deluxe Box Set

This year marked the 20th anniversary of Britpop, so it's good timing that Oasis have been gradually reissuing their albums with lavish box sets.

Definitely Maybe Turns 20

Back in April, we marked the 20th anniversary of Britpop with Stereogum's Britpop Week. We chose the date for a few reasons -- the week marked the anniversaries of both Pulp's His 'N' Hers and Blur's Parklife, Damon Albarn was conveniently releasing his first solo album almost to the day of Parklife's 20th birthday,… More »

Ryan Adams Spent $100k On Scrapped LP, Defends Lousy Oasis Album

Next month, Ryan Adams is set to drop his new self-titled album; he gave us his "Gimme Something Good" video, which awesomely stars Elvira, earlier today. But the album could've turned out very differently. As Adams tells NME, he recorded an earlier version of the album with the Led Zeppelin/Who/Eagles producer Gly… More »

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 »

Liam Gallagher Tweeted “OASIS,” But Don’t Get Your Hopes Up

Liam Gallagher spent a couple hours on Twitter yesterday, and over the course of five tweets, one letter at a time, he spelled out one word: "OASIS." He followed that up with something even more concise, for those not following along:… More »

Watch Live Forever: The Rise And Fall Of Brit Pop

We're celebrating Britpop Week here at Stereogum, and while there's lots of essential listening that comes with such a pursuit, there's not much in the way of essential viewing. There is, however, Live Forever: The Rise And Fall Of Brit Pop, the 2003 BBC documentary directed by John Dower. The film looks back at… 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 »

Win An Oasis Definitely Maybe Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set

Britpop turns 20 this year, and we're celebrating at Stereogum in grand fashion all this week, in particular because several iconic Britpop albums are hitting the same milestone over the next several months.

It’s Britpop Week On Stereogum

The first time I saw Blur was on September 29, 1994, at the old Academy Theatre on 43rd St. in Manhattan. That place has been shut down now since 1996, but I'd guess it held … 1200 people? 1300? In any case, it was a relatively intimate room, and as I recall, that show wasn't… More »

Beady Eye – “Shine A Light” Video

Beady Eye -- basically all of Oasis minus Noel Gallagher -- released their sophomore album BE earlier this year, and now they've got a video for their propulsive single "Shine A Light," which pulls the rare and commendable move of using the Bo Diddley beat in 2013. In director Charlie Lightening's clip, the whole… More »

Watch The Killers Cover Oasis

"We're gonna celebrate one of the UK's finest," Brandon Flowers tells the British crowd in this clip from this past weekend's V Fest. And after those iconic establishing chords, somehow the crowd knows to start belting out "Don't Look Back In Anger" and not "Imagine." Only medium shots fired, because "Don't Look Back In Anger"… More »

Liam Gallagher Is Singing Oasis Again

Beady Eye's debut album was pretty good, but let's face it: It's no Definitely Maybe. Maybe Liam Gallagher has come to believe this truth, too, because after initially vowing not to play Oasis songs with Beady Eye, the new band is dipping into the old band's catalog. During their 6/28 show at Parr Hall i… More »
