Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Being a big Oasis fan I have been listening to Noel Gallagher’s Eagarly anticipated new album “High Flying Birds” I think Noel Gallagher is a great song-writer and once again he proves his talent for song-writing on this album

some might say that some of the songs  have a familliar feel about them (If it ain’t broke don’t fix it). which might come as a bit of a disapointment to Anybody expecting a complete change of direction and a totally new sound for this new band.
Having said that though “What a Life” and some of the other tracks mark something of a departure from the fammiliar Oasis sound.

Personally I think it sounds great, It’s one of the few albums where I have taken an instant like to all the tracks the first time I heard them and couldn’t wait to listen to them again.

What the world is waiting for (Part II)

Ian Brown has reportedly confirmed that the Stone Roses are to reunite, 15 years after the band last played together, This announcement Follows a weekend of rumours over the group’s anticipated comeback, one of Brown’s friends has claimed the star told him: “It’s happening.”

Speculation of the reunion mounted after a major music publicist sent out invitations to journalists on Friday to “a special press conference for a very important announcement” but refused to deny or confirm whether it would announce their return. It has also been reported that Elbow Frontman Guy Garvey was overheard talking abut the news at the Manchester Literary Festival, claiming that the original Stone Roses line-up had been rehearsing together over the summer in Manchester.

Since The Stone Roses split in 1996, Brown has enjoyed some success as a solo star, bass player Mani joined Primal Scream and Squire charted with his band The Seahorses before pursuing an art career. Even though His distinctive artwork has graced many of their record covers he has regularly refuted suggestions the Stone Roses might reform. He also once created a metallic artwork decorated with the phrase “I have no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses” and displayed it on his website.
The feud between him and Brown has long been seen as a potential stumbling block to any lucrative reunion. Two years ago, Brown said Squire tried to end the feud by writing him a song – but he refused to record it, even though he thought it was pretty good, sounded nice, and he liked it – because Squire quit the Roses.
During the height of their fame, when the band were flying high on the back of their hit Fool’s Gold, They performed a Concert at Spike Island near Widnes, this concert was affectionately known as the “baggy Woodstock” and is about to be immortalised in a new movie made by Tom Green, the director of Channel 4 hit Misfits. However news of The big comeback is still being met with disbelief in some quarters.
