Honest, charitable and intelligent but incredibly rude/blunt/bitchy, often and usually uncalled for.
Snake Plisken is the perfect anti-hero
No, he's just a hairy, northern trog. If anyone actually thinks he got up one day and was all like "Y'know, I really feel like raising some money for cancer" - without anyone in his record company's no doubt expansive PR corps being involved, that person is high on the purest crack.
It's obviously Martbowski.
He's one of the most important musical figures alive though. Granted, the last few albums weren't as amazing as the first two, but he still has masses of ability.
If he went solo, it would be astonishingly good. He's one of the best songwriters alive, and I'd love to see him test the water with just an acoustic. It'd be magic.
Also, when he speaks, people listen. Its like with Liam really. You lot all reckon you're all above them, and they're just a pair of Northern simpletons etc., but every time, without fail, as soon as one of them slags off a band, you're all fitting in rage.
They've just got presence. The closest anyone's come to equalling their impact as frontmen is Peter and Carlos, and they don't come within a mile.
They're arrogant, mouthy and highly dislikeable, but they're still up there with the most significant musicians alive right now. For writing the first two records alone, Noel qualifies as a genius. He always wins. Like I said before, he can whip up a storm with these Guardian bashing student types by just dropping a little quip about some tacky pretentious act they're all wanking over. But if Kele Okereke ever said anything about Oasis, do you think they'd give a fuck?
I've been wrightylew. Thanks.
I AM better than them, and they are a pair of northern simpletons. What's more - they've never slagged off a good band, because they never hear any good bands. Because they're one of those many people who can't handle challenging music. Which explains why they dismissed Bloc Party as 'university challenge' music - even though that band are simplistic bullshit. Like them.
Set and match.
But some more about me: At the first the ego was based on the certain fact that I could make better music using only the power of my armpit and a ukelele, and that I'm cultured and discerning enough to recognise Oasis' music for the jumped up pub bullshit it is.
But now my ego is based on the fact that I've got my own little troll to follow me around this forum and imagine that simply describing my clothing is insulting in some way.
I recommend that you work out what exactly it is that's ACTUALLY bothering you and deal with it in a way that doesn't require my participation in some gay internet feud.
is such a great songwriter and would be great solo and blah blah blah why is he letting other people in Oasis, especially Liam Gallagher write songs for the band? That is the true mark of a songwriter running out of ideas (as if that's not obvious anyway). I love people who defend Oasis and will carry on doing so til the grave....they're so great!
he always comes across as a decent, funny guy.
In print, he's usually slagging off bands that are either more flavour of the month than Oasis, or have sold more records worldwide- and he generally does it when Oasis have some new product or project to flog.
He's playing the music game for all it's worth and good luck to him.
you're not silly, one way or the other
He's got a good line in one-liners. I can give or take his music. I love the word "lumpen" merely because it describes the majority of their oeuvre perfectly.
