NOEL GALLAGHER & HIS HIGH FLYING BIRDS Share New Demo Of New Album

New striking strokes

3 January 2022

NOEL GALLAGHER just announced that the next – fourth – longplayer with
his High Flying Birds is canned. For all his fans, out there, he shared a demo
of one of the tracks.

It’s called, weirdly, TRYING TO FIND A WORLD THAT’S BEEN AND GONE: PART 1
and is a characteristic Noel ballad as we know it. But as it goes with demos, it sounds
like one: raw and unfinished.

This is what Noel had to say about it: “So we didn’t actually get there in the end did we?
I finished writing/demoing the next NGHFB album about 10 days ago. Thought you might wanna hear this little piece which – like last year’s offering – sounds quite appropriate for this New Year’s Day. Hope you had THE BEST night (as much as was allowed anyway) and hopefully we’ll catch up somewhere in the summer.”

His beloved brother Liam isn’t a great fan of our kid’s new
song and tweeted: “Miserable arse cheer up you billionaire.”

up with another title!

NOEL GALLAGHER Is Hopeful That ‘WE’RE GONNA GET THERE IN THE END’

1 January 2021

Here’s NOEL GALLAGHER‘s new year message. The wonderwall
who doesn’t look back in anger wrote this on his FB-page…

“Firstly let me wish everyone a Happy New Year. Things can only get better from here!! (saying that, they couldn’t get much worse could they?!)

Anyway I’ve been writing and noodling recently and I’ve made a little demo of a tune that I
wrote a couple of weeks ago and it actually came out sounding pretty good … the lyrics are quite apt for the times and I think I’d like to share it with you. The song is called WE’RE GONNA GET THERE IN THE END. Hope your hangovers aren’t too horrific. Hopefully we’ll catch up soon. PS. IT’S ONLY A DEMO. NG”

Prosit, Noel, you’re Turn Up The Volume‘s first pick of the day of 2021

BIG BLASTS FROM THE PAST – 5 Knockout Albums Turning 10 In 2021

1. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT FROM THE VACCINES? by THE VACCINES

Released: 11 March 2011 – debut LP
NME said: “By fusing elements of US pop-punk (the Ramones – not Blink 182), chillwave
(they too are obsessed with reverb) and classic good-time pop’n’roll (The Strokes, primetime Libs/KOL), The Vaccines have recorded an album that – if things continue to go their way – should serve to give British rock music a much-needed jolt in the arm.”

2. SKYING by THE HORRORS

Released: 11 July 2011 – third LP
Pitchfork said: “While they may have started out as all glittering surfaces, the Horrors have evolved into a dependable band making wide-reaching rock music. Whether a calculated retreat or just a natural maturation, the Horrors have found a sound more content with background and atmosphere, and it suits them nicely.”

3. NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS

Released: 17 October 2011 – self-titled debut LP
The Daily Mirror: “High Flying Birds is the best collection
of Noel Gallagher tunes since his Morning Glory days.”

4. LET ENGLAND SHAKE by PJ HARVEY

Released: 14 February 2011 – eight LP
AllMusic said: “Let England Shake’s’ songs, touching on the disastrous World War I naval strike that left more than 30,000 English soldiers dead. Her musical allusions are just as fascinating and pointed. Its complexities make it one of Harvey’s most powerful works.

.
5. SUCK IT AND SEE by ARCTIC MONKEYS

Released: 6 June 2011 – fourth LP
NME said: “Suck It and See’, then, is the band’s ‘Rubber Soul’. Much like how The Beatles spent the early part of their career penned in by commercial expectations, they broke out and proved they were much more than novelty love songs on their experimental, but concise sixth album.”
