I often say the only reason I even write about music anymore is for the thrill of writing yet another article on the Gallagher brothers. Well, wouldn’t you know it, one of them said something crazy again. Rolling Stone had the inspired idea to ring Noel and ask him his thoughts about 2013. While I won’t regurgitate the whole conversation, it can be found here, I will post some highlights:
“Lady Gaga for me is all about that first album, because my daughter and my wife loved it. I’ve never heard of her since. What does that say? That speaks volumes, to me. In fact, she’s probably doing a shit on top of a boiled egg right now. And somebody will fucking freeze it and call it art.”
“I haven’t heard [the new Arcade Fire]. Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own asshole. This is not the Seventies, okay? Who has the fucking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album? How arrogant are these people to think that you’ve got an hour and a half to listen to a fucking record?”
“She was on TV recently, Miley Ray Cyrus, and it was just like, “What the fuck is all this about?” I don’t know. It’s a shame, because it puts all the other female artists back about fucking five years. Now, Adele and Emili Sande – that music, to me, is like music for fucking grannies, but at least it’s got some kind of credibility.”
“All I’ve done is sit around the house and become a fucking hypochondriac. Dog-shit year. Can’t wait until it’s over.”
Well, at least he’s honest.
