On This Day In Oasis History...














"Go Let It Out" is a song by English rock band Oasis, written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher.

It was released on February 7th 2000 as the first single from the fourth studio album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. The song peaked at #1 in the UK charts where it went Silver.

The lyrics are a similar vein to "Roll With It" in that it encourages the listener to get on with their life without being specific about how this is to be achieved. The song samples the drums from Johnny Jenkins' version of Dr John's "I Walk on Gilded Splinters". The title may be a reference to the line in "Hey Jude" by The Beatles, "So let it out and let it in, hey, Jude, begin". Noel described the song as "the closest we came to sounding like a modern day Beatles" in the 'Lock the Box' interview found on the DVD in the special edition of Stop the Clocks.

The song, along with B-side "(As Long As They've Got) Cigarettes in Hell", also embodies the psychedelic feel which the band experimented with on the album. It couples this with an acoustic guitar chord sequence. "Let's All Make Believe", the second B-Side is considered by many to be one of the best Oasis B-sides. Some people believe the lyrics of this song to relate to the cracks that began forming in the group at the time (see below), for example: "So let's all make believe/that we're still friends and we like each other."



















Due to the departure of guitarist Bonehead and bassist Guigsy in the early recording sessions for Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the track features only Liam Gallagher (vocals), Noel Gallagher (rhythm guitar, bass guitar, lead guitar) and Alan White (drums).

Oasis were looking for replacements for founding members Bonehead and Guigsy and while Bonehead was quickly replaced with fellow Creation signing and former Heavy Stereo frontman Gem Archer, Guigsy proved harder to replace. Thus the trippy video for "Go Let It Out" had to be filmed with Noel on bass, Archer in Noel's role as lead guitarist and Liam in Archer's role as rhythm guitarist.



The b-side "Let's All Make Believe" has recently been included in several lists as a 'hidden gem', such as Q magazine placing it at number one on its list of '500 best lost tracks' and at 4 on its 'list of songs to download this month - January 2006.' Q magazine said in the description 'If Standing on the Shoulder of Giants had contained this track, it would have probably got another star'.

In the "lock the box" interview, Noel considers "Go Let It Out" to be "head and shoulders" above any other songs he had written during this time, and its "up there with some of the best things I've ever done."

"Go Let It Out" is included on Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks, and is the only song from Standing on the Shoulder of Giants on that album.

Noel Gallagher Has Written A Song For 'The Monkees' New Album













The Monkees are celebrating their 50th anniversary by releasing a new album, Good Times!, with songs written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, Neil Diamond, Carol King, and more.

The Monkees, who started as a television band on the ‘60s TV series of the same name and eventually formed a real band, have been doing reunion tours and albums since the 1980s. Good Times!, which arrives on June 10th, will be the group’s first release since the passing of Davy Jones in 2012 and their last album, 1997’s Justus. The album is produced by Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger.

“I’m not a big music listener outside of Frank Sinatra during martini hour, but I began doing research and I realized that the whole indie rock scene is all about recapturing that 1960s jangly guitar sound of the Monkees, amongst many other groups, of course,” singer Micky Dolenz told Rolling Stone. “One reason we don’t have a final track listing yet is because once we put the word out all these people said they wanted to get involved.”

Founding member Michael Nesmith is not participating. The group has also announced their world tour dates.

On This Day In Oasis History...













"Songbird" is a song by British rock band Oasis, from their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. It was released as the fourth single from that album on 3 February 2003 and peaked at #3 in the UK charts. Being written by lead singer Liam Gallagher, it was the first time the band had released a single not written by his brother Noel.

Upon joining Oasis in the early nineties, Noel Gallagher claimed sole-songwriting responsibilities, and allowing little-to-no leeway from the rest of the band. He openly mocked the songwriting output of Liam and Bonehead, who had been in charge of Oasis' songwriting prior to his joining and had written a handful of tracks such as "Take Me" and an acoustic number titled "Life In Vain". Liam elaborated on the situation in 1994, after the release of Definitely Maybe saying "Noel won't let me (write), but I can't really write anyway... In the future if I started writing top tunes, I still don't think he'd be up for it... I know for a fact, even if he was going dry, he wouldn't play my songs... I'm not happy with that, but that's the way it is innit?".

However, after Oasis' third album Be Here Now received a cold reception from music critics, Noel began to loosen his control and allowed Liam to contribute songs. Though his first effort, "Little James" which appeared on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, was criticised for being too simple and childlike (in particular, rhyming "plasticine" with "trampoline"), Songbird was fairly well received, despite only being based around two simple chords (G + Em7).




















The song, written for Liam's girlfriend Nicole Appleton, was seen as a surprising break away from Liam's "Hard-Man" image. He explained this away saying "I like beautiful things...It's not all dark in Liam World. I take me shades off every now and again and have a look at the world and see some nice things."

The simplistic video was filmed in Regent's Park in London, and featured Liam playing an acoustic guitar under a tree, and also being chased by a dog.



Songbird is the shortest running Oasis single, at 2:07.

The song is included on Oasis' 2006 'best-of' album Stop The Clocks.

Noel Gallagher Wants To Lick Pep Guardiola's Face













The legendary singer-songwriter and die-hard Blues fan is clearly overjoyed that Pep has been announced as the new Manchester City manager.

He’s proving to be a very popular choice as the next Manchester City boss.

And you perhaps won’t find a fan more adoring than Manchester music legend Noel Gallagher , who has gone as far as to say he wants to lick Pep Guardiola’s face.

The Oasis singer-songwriter and guitarist - and his wife Sara MacDonald- are clearly overjoyed that Pep has agreed a three-year contract to become City manager in the summer.

The die-hard Blues fan posted a photo of the coach on his Instagram page with the message: “I see you baby!!!

“Be warned Mr.Pep both me and Sara are Very much looking forward to licking your face next season..”

In December Noel also made his feelings clear about the new City badge – saying he loves it so much he would have it tattooed on his back.

In a video tweeted by the club the Manchester he said: “This new badge represents what Manchester City is.

“I for one, I’m going to leave these offices, and go straight to a tattoo parlour and I’m going to get a massive one tattooed on my back. That’s how good it is.”

Then he showed his love for the new badge again by posing with a giant version of the crest , made from sand, on a sunshine family break.

The Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds frontman seems to be in a typically ouspoken mood at the moment because he’s been putting rap superstar Kanye West in his place after Yeezy boasted to his 18 million Twitter followers about his new album Waves.

Kanye tweeted: "So happy to be finished with the best album of all time" and he went on “This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.”

And Noel hit back on his Instagram page: “So Kanye thinks he’s made the best album of all time?

“You might sell more Mr.Kanye but NGHFB will be better..FACT!”

Well that told him.

Noel Gallagher On Manchester City's Appointment Of Pep Guardiola












Rock legend and Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher has issued a warning to his fellow supporters – having Pep Guardiola as manager will not guarantee success.

The Spaniard’s widely expected switch to the Etihad Stadium was confirmed on Monday, with the former Barcelona coach to succeed Manuel Pellegrini in the summer.

It’s a huge coup for City, who reportedly fought off interest from a host of other top clubs from around the world to land the outgoing Bayern Munich boss, including rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.

The 45-year-old has won top honours at every club he has coached – three La Liga, two Champions League and two Copa del Rey titles at Barcelona, plus two Bundesliga titles and one DFB Cup at Bayern Munich – and he could well be the difference as City look to end their wait for European glory.

But High Flying Birds frontman Gallagher has attempted to calm the early celebrations – "he hasn’t even landed in Manchester yet" – by asking: "Can he do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?"

Speaking on the Sports Bar, the former Oasis icon told talkSPORT: “It’s an amazing statement of intent, but some of my City friends are celebrating like we’ve won something!

“He doesn’t really guarantee anything. What having Guardiola does is he opens the door to the top, top players

“I’d have thought if the likes of Paul Pogba, if he hasn’t made his mind up about where he’s going at the end of the season, Guardiola could potentially swing it for him to come to City.

“We hear rumours of Neymar and he could swing it with him too. These players want to play for the best managers.

"I think Guardiola has work to do – we should have won five Premier League titles in a row with this squad – but he’s widely regarded as the best, so we’re about to find out aren’t we?

“Managers at top teams are judged on Champions Leagues now, and I think HE would consider his time at City a failure if he doesn’t win the Champions League with all the resources he will have at his disposal.

“We’re about to see if he’s one of the greats aren’t we, because he’s not coming to a two-horse race here.

“We’re about to see if the old adage is true – can he do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?

“Not only is it a great thing for City, it’s a great thing for all English football fans. Although we can’t seem to attract the top players in the world anymore, the top managers are coming here - him and Klopp and if Jose goes to United, which I’m sure he will now.”

Noel Gallagher Gives Updates On His New Album And Hairline













Noel Gallagher is hard at work on a follow-up to last year's Chasing Yesterday with his solo project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. "I'm in the studio at the minute," the singer and guitarist tells Rolling Stone. "I'm in the middle of fucking about."

Gallagher has a clear goal in mind for his third High Flying Birds LP. "I'm doing some stuff that, this time in particular, will get really, properly ignored in America," he says. "I don't just mean ignored like the rest of 'em. I mean properly ignored. That's what I'm aiming for: total, total anonymity. I'm sick and tired of being in New York and being pestered by one person a month. That's gotta fucking stop."

One influence to look out for: David Bowie. Gallagher recently spoke to Rolling Stone to discuss his lifelong love of the Starman's music, which he suggests has carried over to his most recent work. "There's a line in 'In the Heat of the Morning,'" he says, referencing a Sixties-pop rarity from early in Bowie's career. "I listened to it the other day, thinking, 'Oh, I've subconsciously used that in some of my new stuff.' Amazing!" Gallagher also cites an echo of 1973's "The Jean Genie" in a track he's cooking up. "I've nicked a little bit of that," he admits. "The 'woo-hoo!' You'll hear that sooner or later in one of my tracks."

The guitarist laughs before offering a final word of wisdom. "I remain fucking totally awesome," Gallagher declares. "In 2016, I'm as awesome as I was in the back end of 2015. My hair is impeccable; it's not showing any signs of thinning, at all. I'm fuckin' thriving. Thriving!"
