Forget all the mini leaks and teasers. The long awaited first solo release from The Right Rhumorable Mr Noel Gallagher will debut on his YouTube channel @ (get this) 8.21 AM in the morning UK time.
A much as I loved OASIS from 1994 until their sad demise, I personally have been waiting for this solo material since about 1997. Noel Gallagher is undoubtedly one of the most God gifted muscians to ever pluck the earth and this new stuff is gonna' have that ability to grab you by the heart and the balls at the same time, just like the first time you heard CAST NO SHADOW. Be excited. Set your alarm for 8.17 AT THE LATEST.

Album: Bon Chic Bon Genre
Campag Velocet formed in 1993 in London. They didn't release this, their debut album until 1999. I was turned onto this album when I heard the title track 'Bon Chic Bon Genre' as Brother took the stage at Middlesbrough Uncle Alberts. I traced the track and the wonders of this album are now mine forever.
The odd thing is, the rest of the album bears almost no resemblance to the track Bon Chic Bon Genre but I still love it.
Imagine if Johnny Marr had joined the Sex Pistols yeah? That gives you an idea of the sound of the bulk of the album. There are also bits of Primal Scream in there, giving some of the tracks a trippy feel but not quite reaching psychedelia.
I think they've dispanded now but this album was worth them existing...
Give it a Go.... LOUD in your car..... The drunker the better..

While introducing The Smiths song MEAT IS MURDER, Morrissey explained how the bulls used have barbed wire wrapped around their testicals to agitate them. He went on to descrive how "Shitty William and Shitty Kate" clapped along to the cruelty. Watch the video below.
Full gig review and pictures to follow.
