On This Day In Oasis History...

"Lord Don't Slow Me Down" is a song by Oasis. The song was released as a download-only single on October 21, 2007 in promotion of the release of Oasis' rockumentary of the same name, Lord Don't Slow Me Down.

On October 29, the song debuted at number ten in the UK Singles Chart, becoming Oasis' 21st UK top 10. It is also their 21st top ten single in a row. It is also the first single by Oasis not to reach the top 4 since 1994's Cigarettes & Alcohol.

In October 2006 the first part of the song was used in a preview of the band's movie. Written and sung by Noel Gallagher and recorded during the Don't Believe the Truth sessions, Gallagher described it as being "one of the best things, like The Who, The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group combined, and it's got two drum solos on it!" The entire song leaked into the internet just a few days before the video was uploaded on YouTube and the song was played on the radio, on 1 October. The song was a probable track to be included on the band's last album, 2005's Don't Believe The Truth, but was removed from the final track list by Noel Gallagher, as he thought he sang on too many songs on the record. In May 2008 an unreleased studio version with Liam Gallagher on lead vocals was leaked over internet fansites.

This song is included on Dig Out Your Soul bonus CD.

Track Listing

1. "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" - 3:17
2. "The Meaning of Soul" (Live at City of Manchester Stadium '05) - 2:32
3. "Don't Look Back in Anger" (Live at City of Manchester Stadium '05) - 5:38

Celebrity Gogglebox: Sneak Peak Of Noel Gallagher watching Strictly Come Dancing

We could not be more excited about tonight's Celebrity Gogglebox - all in aid of Stand Up to Cancer - and this sneak peek of Noel Gallagher watching Strictly Come Dancing does not disappoint.

Noel - who's sharing a sofa with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell - seems to warm to Mark Wright's Superman-themed routine... because he's done a similar one himself.

Except Noel wasn't doing it in a studio in Borehamwood - he was at Mick Jagger's house in Mustique. But Kate is there to bring him back to Earth, pointing out: "Not the paso doble though." We're also quite pleased to see that Noel is excellent at choosing snacks, as he has an open packet of pickled onion Monster Munch on the table.

Introducing The 'This Feeling' Stage At The Dunfermline Live Music Festival

The Dunfermline Live music festival is set to rock Scotland's ancient capital after attracting what organisers say is its best line-up yet.

On Saturday 18th October the town will be buzzing as music fans from all over the UK arrive for a feast of entertainment.

There is a mixture of established festival favourites such as headliners Embrace, King Creosote, Eugene McGuinness, Hector Bizerk, Dexters and AMWF alongside the cream of the country's fast-emerging talent such as The Merrylees, Vigo Thieves, Scary People, Neon Waltz, Modern Faces and The Moon Kids.

The organisers have high hopes to build Dunfermline Live into one of Scotland's top music festivals and have made a promising start over the past two years when Shed Seven and Big Country were the headliners.
This year the event has been pared down from three days to just one with the emphasis on attracting a packed schedule of quality indie acts playing at six venues all within easy walking distance of each other.
Tickets are £20 and allow to music fans wander from bar to bar enjoying their favourites and they are guaranteed entry to headliners Embrace.

Frontman Danny McNamara believes that Scottish music fans are the noisiest in the world and is relishing his first visit to Dunfermline to see how Fife measures up on the decibel count.

With three previous number one albums under the belt, the Yorkshire band this year made a successful return after a seven-year absence.

Their self-titled album released in April reached number five in the UK charts and they also made a welcome return to an own stomping ground for the last T in the Park at Balado.

Danny McNamara is excited about the band's first foray into Dunfermline. He said, "Whenever we play in Scotland there's always a real buzz. The fans in Scotland seem to be noisier than anywhere else so we're really looking forward to playing at Dunfermline Live.

"When we got asked to headline the festival it was a no-brainer really and we're really looking forward to coming. There's Embrace fans coming from London, from Yorkshire, from all over so it should be good.
"We love playing in Scotland. T in the the Park is always brilliant for us. Two of my three favourite gigs we've ever done were at T in the Park so it's always amazing when we play there."

Dan Forouhar, singer of hotly-tipped Scary People, said, "This is our first time in Dunfermline with the band. I'm shocked we've never hit it before now but all the boys are really looking forward to it especially going there with another Dundee contingent. It should be a great day and I don't doubt it will be a big success for everybody."

Dunfermline Live organiser Calum Miller said, "We've been able this year to go out and get some of the best up and coming bands from across the UK along with well-established headline acts.

"Embrace having a top five album this year, Fife's own King Creosote and Eugene McGuinness has been one of our favourites for a long time and it's a big year for him.

"It's great to have people like Hector Bizerk and the Dexters on board and also to give a platform to local bands from this area like Modern Faces and The Moon Kids. They are doing exceptionally well on the Scottish music scene and it's great for them to play in their home town at an event like this.

"With all that combined, we think it's an amazing line-up this year and it's going to be one of the best days of music Dunfermline has seen for a long time. The amount of quality in just one day is superb.

"The number of wristbands will be limited so that everybody gets the chance to see the headline band Embrace. People turning up will be given a map of Dunfermline showing where all the venues are and a timetable.

"Dunfermline's a beautiful place to visit, a historic town and to see place buzzing with live music on the day is going to be fantastic. We've got such a rich heritage of music in Dunfermline and the Fife area that it's great to be able to bring a festival of this size to the town.

"We've seen the success of Dunfermline bands like Big Country, the Skids and Nazareth in the past and it's great to see the new breed coming through and hopefully events like this will help us find the next big Dunfermline act."

Gifford Bruce, of main sponsors the Alfred Stewart Property Foundation Ltd, said, "This year's Dunfermline Live line-up has a great line-up with a diverse range of bands and it's fantastic to see ticket sales going so well.

"It will attract music fans from Glasgow, Edinburgh and further afield into Dunfermline which is a good thing for local businesses and it will also give young local bands an opportunity to showcase their talents and hopefully add to the rich music heritage the town is proud to have."

The full line-up:

Lourenzos's: Embrace, Modern Faces, OSKAR.

PJ Molloy's: King Creosote, AMWF, The Youth and Young, Sienna, Lucy and the Lyrics. Late night session: Neon Waltz, The Moon Kids, Scary People.

Harlem: Eugene McGuinness, Dexters, Tijuana Bibles, Vigo Thieves, The Mona Lisa's.

Life: The Merrylees, Medicine Men, The Wingnuts, Vladimir.

Coady's: Hector Bizerk, Broken Boy, The Velveteen Saints, Return to the Sun, Echo Arcadia.

Mr Sifter Stars In Liam Gallagher's New Pretty Green Fashion Shoot

The famous “Mr Sifter” from Oasis song Shakermaker has become a star of Liam Gallagher’s latest fashion campaign for his clothes label Pretty Green.

As the M.E.N. revealed earlier this year, Liam returned to his favourite Manchester childhood haunts to shoot his Autumn/Winter collection for his fashion firm.

Now, the latest images from that shoot have been released which include the Sifters record shop in Burnage where Liam and brother Noel Gallagher famously used to buy records - and which was immortalised in Oasis’ 1994 single Shakermaker.

In it Liam sings: “Mr Sifter sold me songs when I was just 16 / Now he stops at traffic lights / But only when they’re green” - a reference to the shop’s location on the junction of Fog Lane.

Mr Sifter himself - real name Peter Howard - also posed up during the fashion shoot, although he tells The Diary he wasn’t dressed in Liam’s togs for the occasion adding: “Although I was pretty greenish”.

Peter, 66, says he still can’t believe all the attention his shop receives from legions of Oasis fans from across the world thanks to that one song reference.

He laughs: “All these years on I’m still basking in this reflected glory.

“All I’ve done is flog a few records and be lucky enough for the lads to come in back in the day.

“It’s incredible that it’s now 20 years since Shakermaker came out, but the fans have been coming ever since - and still keep on coming.”

Peter says music fans have travelled from far and wide to make the pilgrimage to the shop - which he has run on Fog Lane since 1977. He named the shop Sifters as a nod to people sifting through records, and his nickname as “Mr Sifter” has stuck ever since.

He chuckles: “Often they just come in and stare at me for 20 minutes and then bog off. It can be a bit embarrassing when I’m just standing there eating my sandwich.

“I don’t think a lot of the young ones relate to the humble CD or LP so they’d rather marvel at my age instead.

“We get people from all over the world, they come from South America, Brazil, lots from Japan. To be honest sometimes we get more foreigners in here than from Burnage or Didsbury.”

Sadly, Liam himself didn’t take part in the shoot and Peter says it’s been some years now since he’s seen either of the rock star brothers in his shop.

But Liam loved Sifters enough to include it in his “Streets of Manchester” fashion campaign which celebrates five years of his fashion firm.

The different images have been released area by area on his Pretty Green website, with Sifters and Castlefield the latest two locations revealed this week.

In the images, two models pose moodily in Pretty Green’s mod-style fashions, including Liam’s trademark Deansgate parka jackets.

Meanwhile Sifters will be getting more fame later this year - as Peter reveals that an episode of Come Dine With Me filmed there recently, for an episode due to air in November.

Noel Gallagher Says Oasis Committed Festival Suicide At Glastonbury

Noel Gallagher fears his former band Oasis committed festival suicide at one of their biggest ever shows by playing a bunch of new songs the audience had never heard.

The band headlined Britain's Glastonbury festival in 1995 at the height of their fame, but the set was muted when they delivered six tracks from (What's the Story) Morning Glory? which hadn't yet been released.

Although the record was hailed as a classic upon its release three months later in October, 1995, the songs were unknown at the time, and Gallagher regrets opting to perform them at the prestigious festival.

"Oasis never really had their Glastonbury moment. We never really got on with it. I couldn't tell you why. Lord knows we had the tunes but the times that we did it when we should have been great was the first year we headlined it and we got sidetracked," he said.

"We'd just come out of the studio making Morning Glory and we decided, which was suicide, to play six tracks off Morning Glory which no one had heard, one of them being Champagne Supernova which goes on for about half an hour.

"It was the only time we've played Don't Look Back in Anger to silence. And by the time we played (Glastonbury) a second time (in 2004), our moment had passed. So I'd be up for doing it again."

However, Gallagher was quick to play down any suggestion he would reunite with Oasis for the event, insisting he only wants to perform at Glastonbury as a solo star at the request of festival boss Michael Eavis.

He adds, "Yes, if I was asked, yes. If you are listening Michael Eavis, I'll do it."
