The Importance of Being POP!s

A week and a half ago — where does the time go? — I made this intriguing post to Twitter: Funko is offering Funko POP! vinyl figures of the dueling Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Noel and Liam. Text needed writing, and I wrote it because that’s my job. And I decided, Oasis fan that IContinue reading “The Importance of Being POP!s”

On Noel Gallagher’s Next Release

Epic. That’s the only way to describe Noel Gallagher’s “Shoot a Hole into the Sun,” the first track released from his collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous for his next album.

On Beady Eye’s Debut Album

They did. “Don’t Look Back in Anger” was part of a time and a place. “D’You Know What I Mean?” was part of a timeContinue reading “On the Oasis Break-Up”

On a Recent Musical Mood

For some reason, I’ve been in an Oasis mood this week. Don’t ask me why — my moods are as strange as they are inexplicable. But yeah, I’ve had Liam Gallagher’s snarling voice rattling around between my ears this week. Some random observations. I’m not at all gripped by Definitely Maybe. It’s an okay album.Continue reading “On a Recent Musical Mood”
