It just had to happen, didn’t it?
‘No, I’m not having someone with ginger hair making music’, he said regarding Florence from Florence + The Machine. ‘I’m not going down that road. I’m sure she’s a nice girl, but she sounds like someone’s stood on her fucking foot’.
Has this tool even listened to any of her music before? Noel Gallagher is a terrible representation of the modern musician, every single time his arrogant attention-seeking comments make the media it makes me sad to be part of the human race.
He also commented on the quality of the musicians around these days.
‘People are far off being the best band in England or the best band in the world. There’s some good bands out there but there’s no one claiming that mantle’.
I have a sneaking suspicion he believes that mantle is reserved for himself. Oh how wrong he would be.
I’m aware that although this blog has a small readership I’m clearly not helping the media attention surrounding his obnoxious statement by posting about it, but my disdain is so strong that I need to express it somewhere.
On another note, pop punk band Fall Out Boy have unofficially broken up. Whilst on hiatus, numerous tweet’s from bassist Pete Wentz regarding his feelings about the band indicated the unlikeliness of him playing with them again. This sparked tweets and statements from other members regarding a break-up, and it seems evident that they won’t be doing anything together again, at least for a while. Nothing official has been confirmed as of yet.
I will admit, normally the bands that rabid 14-year-old fangirls drool over are not my thing musically anyway, but From Under The Cork Tree is a really catchy album. The others have their moments, but I guess any hope of them moving back into those kinda days is gone now anyway.
