Oasis picked up the Brits Album Of 30 Years for “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” at the Brit Awards recently.
“I’d like to thank Bonehead, Guigsy, Alan White…. the best bands in the f**king world live forever.”
Liam Gallagher is quoted as saying, obnoxiously omitting his brother Noel from his thanks. He then subsequently threw his microphone and trophy into the audience.
Watch it here, though this version is censored. Skip ahead to about 1.40 if you wanna see when Liam comes on stage.
Host Peter Kay then appropriately summed up the performance with “What a knob-head.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
In other news, Peter Gabriel recently did a cover of Radiohead’s “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” for a covers project, and in return expected Thom Yorke to cover “Wallflower” for him. Yorke had apparently agreed to do so and was set to do it, but hasn’t been in contact for a while. And a lot of online media establishments are making a buzz about it. Seriously, give the man a break. Radiohead have been working on their new LP for a while. And he hasn’t said he isn’t going to return the favour. Just wait or something.
To be honest, I thought Gabriel’s cover of “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” was apalling, but I’ve never heard any of his music before. Maybe it’s his style, but I really couldn’t enjoy it at all.
Lastly, The Antlers are set to open some North American shows for The National in June. In North America. I live in Australia. Dammit. That would be an absolutely amazing gig to see. Just thought I’d get that out of my system.

The Decemberists, The Antlers, The National, Radiohead tours… People in the Northern hempisphere are so lucky…
Yeah I know, it’s crazy. Nobody wants to bother coming to Australia on a regular basis. If Radiohead tour after they release the new LP and don’t come here I’m gonna be so disappointed.
We’ll just have to rob a bank and go over there. I’m sure it’s only a little illegal…
Haha, sounds like a plan. Alternatively if that doesn’t work we could just steal a plane and fly ourselves. How hard can it be? Accelerator and a steering wheel and we’re set.
You obviously haven’t seen me drive. Roundabouts curl up in fear when they see me approaching. How about I rob the bank and you drive the plane?
Alright, that sounds good. We’ll grab something small, like an Airbus or something.
