May 16th 2005, the new album by Oasis is out and i cant wait.

NOEL SPILLS BEANS ON NEW OASIS LP




OASIS guitarist NOEL GALLAGHER has spoken out about the release of the band’s forthcoming studio album.

The as-yet-untitled LP will hit the shops on May 16 and features 12 songs written by Noel, singer Liam guitarist Gem Archer and bassist Andy Bell.

He said: "The finished album is my favourite one of the last four. Because we're all contributing to the songwriting there's a different feel to it. In fact the only songs that sound like Oasis are Andy Bell's funnily enough.

"I've been listening to a lot of Bob Dylan last year, Liam was obviously some guy who used to be in a band in Liverpool, Gem's a very rock and roll but not in a Jet way if you know what I mean. Andy's just sound like Oasis, which is great."

The band are currently approving the artwork for the release, which according to Noel "looks quite bleak and northern", but are yet to decide on the first single to be lifted from the LP.

"There was an obvious first single but I was singing it," Noel explained. "After 12 years of Oasis, Liam thought that might sound a bit odd, people might think he'd left the band. He threw his cans out the pram."

Talking to Radio 1's Jo Whiley, the guitarist gave fans an insight into his favourite tracks on the album and said that his brother’s songs are "very, very good".

"If I had to pick one it would be ’The Importance of Being Idle’," he revealed. "That sounds a bit like The Kinks, a bit like The La's, a bit Liverpudlian. I think it's got the best lyrics. I'm getting quite fed up with London at the minute, there's one song called ’Part Of The Queue’ which is about living in London and how you always seem to be queuing up for things in that city and how it almost … when I moved to London about 12 years ago it blew me away but the novelty has worn off. It's become so overcrowded over the last three or four years that we're upping sticks and moving."

Noel said: "The most interesting thing will be when you hear Liam's songs. They are very, very good. A song called ’Guess God Thinks I'm Able’. The end 30 seconds will blow you away. It's great."

Oasis will head out on a UK stadium tour in the summer, having sold over 330,000 tickets for the dates. The shows are Glasgow Hampden Park (June 29), City Of Manchester Stadium (30, July 2-3), Southampton Rose Bowl Stadium (6) and Milton Keynes National Bowl (9-10).

Noel said that the group have "bagged some magnificent support bands" for the tour, though did not reveal the exact names.

Good to hear that they are back, a weak Oasis song is better than most modern bands good stuff.

Noel and Liam Gallagher have been invited to the 2005 brit awards to spice things up. Hopefully they get smashed and slate off all the second rate acts such as Robbie Williams and Jamelia

Oasis are going to be part of the National Curriculum in england for children studying music gcse's. They will have to listen to Oasis and other brit pop songs and assess what the song means and what instruments are being used.


Looks like a new generation of oasis fans will be born

Can't wait for it. They did their new stuff last year at Glastonbury, and they were going to release the album last year, but the fans didn't like or something like that (at Glastonbury) and so they changed it around

OASIS PLAN GARDEN PARTY




OASIS are to play a huge NEW YORK date, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

The band, who will tour the UK in June and July, will also play at the New York Madison Square Garden on June 22. Support at the show will come from Jet.

Tickets go on sale on February 12.

The band’s as-yet-untitled LP will hit the shops on May 16 and features 12 songs written by Noel, singer Liam guitarist Gem Archer and bassist Andy Bell.

Noel Gallagher said: "The finished album is my favourite one of the last four. Because we're all contributing to the songwriting there's a different feel to it. In fact the only songs that sound like Oasis are Andy Bell's funnily enough.

Ex-Oasis star helps our auction Feb 5 2005




Karen Price, Western Mail


To bid on this item please click on this link

A STAR-STUDDED celebrity auction organised by the Western Mail which has so far raised almost £17,000 for the victims of the Asian tsunami will be boosted further today thanks to another fantastic donation.

Former Oasis musician Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs has donated a gold disc he received for the band's best-selling album.

The signed commemorative disc for (What's the Story) Morning Glory? will go on sale on the auction website eBay today along with a five times platinum disc for the same album donated by Welsh producer Owen Morris.

The Manchester band, pictured right - which includes brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher - received a number of discs, along with producer Morris, due to the phenomenal success of the 1995 album, which sold 4.2 million copies in the UK alone.

It remains the second biggest British album in history, behind The Beatles' 1967 hit Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which sold 4.5 million copies.

Bonehead, who has since left the band, has donated the gold disc he was presented with after more than 25,000 copies of the album were sold in Denmark.

He generously decided to support the Western Mail's auction to raise funds for the victims of the Asian tsunami after hearing that Morris had handed over his five times platinum disc, which he received after the album sold more than 1.5 million copies in the UK.

The chart-topping album - the second released by Oasis - spawned some of their greatest hits, including Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Roll With It and Don't Look Back in Anger.

And although they had already gained a string of fans following the release of their debut album, Definitely Maybe, it was this, their second album, which propelled them to the top of their profession and made them one of the biggest bands of the '90s.

Morris, who is from Glyncorrwg, near Port Talbot, produced the album for Oasis, who are managed by Marcus Russell from Ebbw Vale.

Although his five times platinum disc is one of the greatest pieces of music memorabilia, he decided to donate it to the tsunami auction after being touched by the victims' plight.

"I wanted to put the disc forward for auction in the hope that it will raise as much money as possible for the appeal," said Morris, who now lives in Crickhowell and has worked with other top acts like Ash and The Verve.

"I'm working with Thailand's biggest rock band Loso who have told me just how bad things really are in their country at the moment.

"The Oasis disc should raise quite a lot of money for the cause."

After hearing about the auction through Morris, father-of-two Bonehead decided he also wanted to do his bit to help.

"Owen said he was donating a disc and I thought it was a great idea," he said. "I would rather it was used to raise money than just left sitting on my wall.

"I've got others and all of the band's work is on record for my children."

"I still feel shocked by what's happened in Asia - it's destroyed generations."
