At a press conference in London last week, NOEL GALLAGHER officially announced the release of his first solo album project since the split in 2009 of the mega-platinum UK band Oasis. NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS, the album eponymously named for Noel’s current working band, will be released on November 8th in the U.S., on Sour Mash/Mercury Records.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will tour this autumn in support of the album, dates to be announced in the months ahead. At the press conference, Noel stated that the band would be performing classic Oasis tracks along with his new solo material. “I’m proud of them and of what they mean to people,” he said of the Oasis repertoire. “I’ll never do a gig without playing them. They’re like drugs to me.”

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS was recorded in London and completed in Los Angeles during 2010 and the first half of 2011. The album was co-produced by Noel Gallagher and David Sardy, who produced the last Oasis album, Dig Out Your Soul (2008).

Following is the track listing for the new album:
1. Everybody’s On The Run
2. Dream On
3. If I Had A Gun…
4. The Death Of You And Me
5. (I Wanna Live In A Dream In My) Record Machine
6. AKA… What A Life!
7. Soldier Boys And Jesus Freaks
8. AKA…Broken Arrow
9. (Stranded On) The Wrong Beach
10. Stop The Clocks

As songwriter, guitarist and producer of Oasis since the band’s inception in 1993, Noel Gallagher was at the helm for their global success. For 15 years – from the launch of their first indie UK singles in 1994 (“Supersonic,” “Shakermaker,” “Live Forever,” “Cigarettes & Alcohol,” “Whatever”) to their final shows together in the summer of 2009.

Over the course of their seven consecutive #1 studio albums – Definitely Maybe (1994), (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995), Be Here Now (1997), Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000), Heathen Chemistry (2002), Don’t Believe the Truth (2005), and Dig Out Your Soul (2008) – and one live double-album, Familiar To Millions (2000) – Oasis sold over 70 million records worldwide, including near 40x-platinum cumulative album sales and over 7 million single sales in the UK, and 7x-platinum album sales in the U.S. The band’s second album, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? has sold over 22 million copies worldwide.

Oasis charted 22 consecutive Top 10 UK hits from 1995 to 2008 (including eight #1′s), creating an astounding historical record. The band logged 765 total weeks on the UK singles and albums charts from 1995 to 2005, including 177 cumulative weeks for Definitely Maybe; and 145 cumulative weeks for (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?.

A little background info on Musicians On Call:

Musicians On Call was originally founded by Michael Solomon and Vivek Tiwary in the course of their volunteer work with The Kristen Ann Carr Fund at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

After a concert sponsored by the Kristen Ann Carr Fund, a hospital staff member raised the issue that some of the patients had been unable to attend the performance either because they were in treatment or too sick to leave their rooms. In response, Michael, Vivek and the musician went from room to room to play for those patients who had been unable to attend the concert. The one-on-one interaction of patient and musician created a crucial intimacy; the expressions on the faces of friends and family members at the patients’ bedsides revealed a deep sense of connection and release. Musicians On Call was born!

Noel Gallagher who never seems to shut up recently commented on Oasis and the Glastonbury Festival 2009. Apparently he doesn’t like the festival and that the band has never played well at Glastonbury (same thing can be said for a lot of venues they’ve played).

“Glastonbury is great to be at but it’s not really good for people like me to play at because you don’t go on until 11 at night and all the people you’re with by that time are absolutely battered.”

Instead, the band will focus on their own tour and complain about hiphoppers playing Glastonbury.

Gem Archer from Oasis has joined in on the Jay-Z/Noel Gallagher feud by telling Jay-Z to grow up and comparing the whole thing to a bunch of schoolgirls running in a yard. Frankly, they should all shut the hell up. Seriously. Noel. Get Over It! Sure, some hip hop dude headlined your country’s festival. So what? Why didn’t you play it? White people love Jay-Z, get over it.

This past weekend Richard Branson’s Virgin Fest (V Fest) hit Toronto, Canada with the Foo Fighters and Oasis headlining Saturday and Sunday respectively. While Saturday’s show rocked non-violenty, Sunday had far different results. Noel Gallager, Oasis’s guitarist, was attacked by a fan who pushed him to the ground which proves my point that Canada hates Oasis. Here are two videos of the incident as well as videos from the other bands (Bloc Party, MGMT, Against Me!).

Attack on Noel

2nd Angle

MGMT – Electric Feel

Oasis – Rock N Roll Star

Oasis – Cigarettes and Alcohol

Oasis – Wonderwall

Oasis – Don’t Look Back in Anger

Foo Fighters – Monkeywrench

Foo Fighters – My Hero

Foo Fighters – Everlong

Bloc Party – Helicoper

Bloc Party – Banquet

Against Me! – Trash Unreal

This weekend they had some music festival in England where a bunch of rock bands and a rapper played. Unsurprisingly, the rapper was the best act on the bill. Jay-Z made Noel Gallagher look like a punk by covering Oasis’s Wonderwall and proceeding to mesmerize the crowd. Thanks to The Hip Hop Chronicle, you can read a full review with pictures and watch the entire set or just watch..

Wonderwall and 99 Problems

Amy Winehouse also punched a fan in self-defense. Frankly, I don’t think that anyone but Amy and her inner demons are trying to harm her.

MGMT – Time to Pretend

Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline
