Has Gem Archer Joined Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds?

Former Oasis guitarist Gem Archer is rumoured to have joined Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds.

The pair played together in Oasis from 1999 when Archer stepped in to replace Bonehead on guitar. When the band split, Archer then went on to play with frontman Liam Gallagher in Beady Eye until their demise.

Now, as The List reports, rumours are circulating that Archer has joined Liam’s rival band as touring guitarist in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, sharing his duties with longstanding member Tim Smith. The rumours arose after the band’s Wikipedia page was updated to list Archer as a member from 2017 onwards.

Noel and Gem previously reunited in 2015 at a small show in Lincoln, where the pair performed together for the first time in five years to play Oasis songs ‘Listen Up’, ‘Cast No Shadow’, ‘Slide Away’ and ‘Wonderwall’.

Noel Gallagher’s representatives said ‘no comment’ when approached by NME.

Noel Gallagher's Mum Will Be Guest Of Honour When He Supports U2 In Croke Park

Noel Gallagher will have a very special guest at his upcoming support slot to U2 in Croke Park – his mother Peggy.

The former Oasis star is determined to bring his Mayo-born mother back to Ireland to see him perform at Croker this summer.

A showbiz source revealed: “Noel is planning on bringing Peggy over with his wife Sara, daughter Anais and two sons, Donovan and Sonny.

“He knows it will be a special night supporting U2 in Croke Park and doesn’t want his mum to miss it.

“Peggy loves coming back from Manchester so it’s a perfect opportunity for her to take a trip home.”

Peggy made an appearance in the recent Oasis documentary Supersonic and spoke out about the strained relationship between her world-famous sons.

“I think there was that bit of ­jealously with Liam and Noel,” she said. “Noel was beautiful as a baby and then Liam comes along – it takes the limelight off you.

“You could tell disagreement was there with them. I was glad they were in a band together. I would not have wanted Liam in a band without Noel.

“But it all happened too quick.”

Peggy, 74, also recalled the day Liam came back with a recording contract. “Of course, I thought ‘this is great’,” she said.

“I never really thought it would go the way it did, though. Liam said: ‘All I want, mum, is to earn a bit of money and get myself some new clothes’. And then it all went haywire.”

Noel will take to the stage on July 8th in Croke Park ahead of U2 on their sold out Joshua Tree tour.

The singer is close pals with Bono and he and wife Sara holidayed with the Hewson family at Eze in the South of France last summer.

Meanwhile, Noel is spending this weekend celebrating his 50th birthday part in New York. And stunning Sara had one hell of a surprise for him when she arranged a private meeting with his hero Gerry Seinfeld while in the city.

Sara posted a picture of a happy looking Noel with the comedian, before later that night posting an image of him at dinner sitting between Sienna Miller and Helena Christensen with the hashtag #ifCarlsbergmadewives.

Noel turns 50 on May 29th.

Another On This Day In Oasis History...

The videos below are from April 17th 1995, when Oasis appeared on the White Room Sessions in London, they performed Acquiesce, It's Good To Be Free and Talk Tonight with special guest Paul Weller.

On This Day In Oasis History...

"Who Feels Love?" is a song by British rock band Oasis, written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It became the second single to be released from the album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, peaking at number 4 in the UK charts when released on 17th of April 2000.

The album was noted for its psychedelic feel, and "Who Feels Love?" was held up as the most extreme example of this. Mark Stent was praised for his production on the song, creating a "trippy" feel like that found on Beatles songs such as "Rain". With the psychedelic and Eastern sound, the song also reminds of George Harrison achievements like "Within You Without You" and also some of his solo work.

However, despite the high-quality production, the song was not well received by the critics, NME said that the production "triumphs over any real sort of feeling... pure mock Maharishi spirituality that not even Liam can salvage from the realm of self-parody".

One of the B-sides is a cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". It was played live during the Shoulders tour of 2000. Paul Weller recorded a version of b-side "One Way Road" for his covers-album Studio 150 in 2004. The Weller version was subsequently used as the theme tune to Jack Dee's sitcom Lead Balloon.

The demo for "Gas Panic!" was only ever officially released in Japan before being included on a free Oasis CD issued with the Sunday Times on June 23, 2002.

Irish musician Rob Smith said in an interview on Irish national television in December 2006 that this was the most under-rated song of all time and should be "praised for its genius".

On This Day In Oasis History...

'The Hindu Times' is a song by English rock group Oasis, and was the first single to be released from their fifth album Heathen Chemistry on 15 April 2002. It was written by Noel Gallagher. Noel got the name "The Hindu Times" from a t-shirt he saw in a charity shop. The song was the band's sixth UK #1 single, staying on top for one week before being dislodged by the Sugababes' "Freak Like Me".

The title has little to do with the lyrics of the song, which are more in the vein of Definitely Maybe's "Rock 'n' Roll Star". It has been speculated that the title refers to the main riffs' similarity to Indian music in sound, sounding as if they were played on a sitar. Gallagher himself says that it is because he had already named the song before any lyrics were written for it.

The song, which combines the powerful fast rock of their earlier work with the psychedelic feel of their later work, was one of the first Oasis singles since (What's the Story) Morning Glory to receive almost unanimously positive reviews from the critics. However, some fans have criticised the song, stating that the main guitar riff was lifted from the Stereophonics song, "Same Size Feet", which was released in 1997 on their Word Gets Around album and uses the exact same, or at least very similar, guitar riff.

The song was unveiled during Oasis' Autumn 2001 Noise and Confusion Tour. The song was due to be released commercially at the same time but Noel decided the track needed more work done on it to be suitable for release.

The B-side, "Just Getting Older", was written at the time of the release of Standing on the Shoulder of Giants.

Track listing

01: "The Hindu Times" - 3:53
02: "Just Getting Older" - 3:17
03: "Idler's Dream" - 2:57

7" RKID 23

"The Hindu Times" - 3:53
"The Hindu Times" (demo) - 4:32
10 Minutes Of Noise And Confusion - Pt One - 9:26

The demo version of The Hindu Times is radically different from the finished album version. Most of the lyrics (sung by Noel) are different, and the slower sound of the song is much more "grungy", with a heavy drum loop running throughout the song. It is also a semitone higher in the demo.

The "10 Minutes..." documentary is the first part of a unique feature covering 48 hours on the road with Oasis during the Tour of Brotherly Love which took place in the USA with the Black Crowes during May and June 2001.

On This Day In Oasis History...

"Supersonic" is the debut single released by British rock band Oasis, written by Noel Gallagher. It also appears on their debut album, Definitely Maybe. It was released on the 11 April 1994 and peaked at #31 on the official UK charts. It was the song performed by the band on their debut national TV performance on Channel 4's The Word, which aired on 18 March 1994. It remains to this day a favourite song of both the band and their fans (on the Definitely Maybe DVD, Noel cites it as his favourite Oasis song). The single went silver in the UK on June 30, 2006, 12 years and 3 months after its original release.

In spite of its popularity, Gallagher claims the song is basically a collection of nonsense lyrics written in a matter of minutes, just before the band entered the recording studios to record the track. The identity of the character "Elsa" caused some confusion — according to the song She done it with a doctor/On a helicopter/she sniffin' in a tissue/Sellin' the Big Issue. Noel claims, "Someone told me "Supersonic" was about teenage prostitution. Shit!". It has since been revealed that Elsa was a nine-stone rottweiler with a flatulence problem who was in the studio on the day the song was written, hence the line "she's into Alka Seltzer". It was written and recorded at The Pink Museum in Liverpool. The plan was for Oasis to record "Bring It On Down" for their debut single and another bunch of demos. However, "Supersonic" was written and it impressed everyone so much, it was chosen to be the band's first single. Gallagher has revealed in interviews that "Supersonic"'s distinctive lead guitar part wasn't a deliberate copy of the intro to George Harrison's 1971 single "My Sweet Lord". The band recorded two videos for the song, for UK and US release. The UK version of the video features the band playing on a roof, similar to The Beatles' rooftop concert.

It is included on the official music album for Euro 2004, Vive O 2004!


In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Supersonic" at number 20 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

In May 2007, NME magazine placed "Supersonic" at number 25 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever.

The song is included on Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks.

Alan McGee Thinks Oasis Would 'F*ck Up' Any Potential Reunion

If there's one thing you can say about Alan McGee, it's that he's a man who speaks his mind.

The former Creation Records boss helped steer Oasis to massive success in the 1990s, but even their former manager doesn't think they should get back together - basically because 'they'd fuck it up.'

He told The Sun that he doesn't think Noel and Liam should put aside their differences and get the band back together. “I just hope they don’t spoil the legend, try and recreate and get back together," he said. "They’d fuck it up. As long as you don’t do that, then they are legends forever. So let’s leave it legendary.”

With Liam on the cusp of releasing his debt solo album and Noel continuing with his own successful career, it's unlikely that any potential reunion might happen soon - but McGee is of the opinion that it should never take place.

"I can’t see it," he said. "They are just in different places. It’s always moment in time. You can’t keep going back to try and be 21 again. You have got to move on, you know.”

Pete Doherty On His Bassist Joining Liam Gallagher's Live Band

Liam Gallagher has reportedly signed up Pete Doherty‘s bassist Drew McConnell to play in his band on his upcoming solo tour.

McConnell is a longtime collaborator of Doherty, having played with him in Babyshambles and under various other guises. As well as having his own solo project Helsinki, he’s fronted the musical collective Mongrel with Jon McClure and members of Arctic Monkeys, as well as playing with Supergrass’ Danny Goffey’s solo project, Van Goffy.

Now, Pete Doherty has told the Daily Star that he’s experiencing “stressification on the band front, [with] Drew playing bass guitar for Liam Gallagher’s new tour.”

There has long been an ongoing feud between Doherty and Gallagher, and they have both fathered children with solo star and Kill City singer Lisa Moorish.

In 2005, Gallagher slammed Doherty – telling NME: “What does the word Libertine mean? Freedom! He’s in the corner doing smack with a helmet on his head. There’s nothing free about that. It’s nasty.”

 Gallagher recently shared a photo from the recording studio, having said that rehearsals for his tour are ‘sounding dangerous‘. He revealed that his album will be called ‘As You Were‘, the first single will be called ‘Not For Sale‘, and he has vowed to sing Oasis songs ‘bigger and better than Noel‘.

Roger Daltrey Would Like Noel Gallagher To Take Charge Of Organising The Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts

The Who‘s Roger Daltrey has revealed that in a few years he’s hoping to ‘hand over the reigns’ of booking Teenage Cancer Trust gigs to ‘one of the younger mob’ – and he’s considering Noel Gallagher.

This year marks the 17th anniversary of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs being held at the Royal Albert Hall – seeing likes of Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Suede, Depeche Mode and many more all perform in aid of the charity. Daltrey and bandmate Pete Townsend have been involved in putting the gigs together every year. However, it looks like he’s thinking about passing the baton on to someone else in 2020.

“I’d like to do 20 years and that’d be enough for me,” Daltrey told NME. “I’ll probably hand it over to Noel [Gallagher] or someone. One of the younger mob.”

He continued: “I think in three years time, it’ll be time for me to hand over to er to find someone else to pick up my reigns.  I’m sure there’ll be someone be there to do it. I will warn them that it’s much more work than they’d think it is. But it’s the most rewarding work that you’ll ever do, not financially or in anything like that, but it fills you up with something money can’t buy. It’s amazing.”

Graham Coxon Praises Noel Gallagher's "Fine Voice"

The Blur guitarist went to see Gallagher support The Who last night and said he was in "fine voice".

Graham Coxon has praised Noel Gallagher's acoustic set at the Royal Albert Hall last night (30 March).

The Blur guitarist went to watch The Who's Teenage Cancer Trust gig, where he saw his former Britpop rival Gallagher play support.

Taking to Twitter, the Coffee And TV rocker wrote: "Noel was in fine voice and the who were brilliantz.. nite."

Noel Gallagher's set included Oasis favourites, such as Wonderwall and Don't Look Back in anger, which was captured by Radio X's very own Gordon Smart.

The praise from the Blur man will no doubt act as fighting talk for Noel's estranged brother Liam, who vowed to sing Don't Look Back In Anger "bigger" and "better" when he embarks on his solo tour.

Noel Gallagher Believes Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City Revolution Is Heading In The Right Direction

Noel Gallagher has confessed his love for John Stones and believes Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City revolution is heading in the right direction.

City began the season on fire, with Guardiola’s new-look side registering 10 straight victories that shot them to the top of the Premier League table.

Progress since then has been mixed – but Gallagher says he has every faith in Guardiola’s ability to turn City into one of Europe’s top sides and believes the quality of their attacking football is evidence of that.

 “The style we play is amazing, it’s brilliant,” he said. “Stones is a class defender and I love him.

“Most of the jigsaw pieces are in place now and Pep’s just got to tinker with it.

“It might take a couple of windows but he’ll get it right.

“I think we’re really close to being a great team. If you look at the Liverpool game and Monaco before that, we take the chances we create, we’re sailing through and we’re still up there.

“But it’s small margins, innit? I think next season’s gonna be vastly different.

“We played brilliantly against Liverpool and could and should have won it – and there’s flashes of brilliance.

“Once he gets another couple of transfer windows I think we’ll be alright. I’m excited about next season, for sure.”

Gallagher has also been impressed by the impact Leroy Sane has had since his emergence as one of Guardiola’s most trusted stars.

After a slow start, his goal against Arsenal in December has been the catalyst for vastly improved form and he is now one of the Premier League’s most exciting young players.

With seven goals in his last 14 games, Gallagher says he's already proving a bargain.

"Sane’s brilliant," he said. "It’s all going in the right direction He’s coming in first six or seven games and we were all wondering whether he was cut out for this and Guardiola was saying give him time and he’s one of the best now.

"He looks like a bargain.

"It’s been a good start for Guardiola because we can still win the FA Cup and things are going in the right direction.

"We’re not doing great but we’re not doing bad."
