It’s been a good week for Noel Gallagher. On Sunday, his first post-Oasis album, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, debuted at No 1, comfortably ahead of continue→

The X Factor‘s Matt Cardle. Tonight, his fans – some paying touts £300 a ticket – are already singing along to the new songs. Equally, with the album notching up twice the sales of brother Liam‘s Beady Eye, the senior Gallagher has further edged ahead in the Oasis sibling rivalry stakes by dismissing Liam’s suggested 2015 reunion. Pointedly, the first song Gallagher plays is Oasis‘s It’s Good to Be Free.

However, unlike Liam, he isn’t leaving the old band behind. Nine Oasis tunes feature alongside 11 new ones, which don’t stray far from the Oasis/Kinks blueprint, despite organ swirls, hints of electronica and a jazz trumpet. However, a chunk of them – the likes of the stomping AKA … What a Life! and recessionary-tinged Everybody’s on the Run – are his best tunes in 15 years.

With his pale shirt and red guitars, Gallagher could have stepped straight out of the Britpop era, and the odd acoustic Oasis classic turns the crowd into a massed choir. Adults weep as they sing along, and buskers who make a living from Wonderwall and Don’t Look Back in Anger hear how they ought to be done. There is less sign of the trademark wit, although he does explain the non-appearance of the reunited Stone Roses in the audience with the words “the Reds are confined to barracks” after United’s weekend loss to City. Then it’s back to thumpers such as (Stranded on the) Wrong Beach, with a balding, beer-bellied beast of a drummer unleashing a formidable Glitter stomp.

It’s a solidly enjoyable pop gig rather than anything too adventurous or spectacular, but with a teaser from the intriguing forthcoming psychedelic collaboration with Androgynous Amorphous played before the show, perhaps that is yet to come.

Ha sido una buena semana para Noel Gallagher. El domingo, su primer álbum post-Oasis debutó en el Nº 1, cómodamente por delante del ganador del reallity británico The X Factor. Esta noche, sus fans llegan a pagar la reventa a £ 300, y ya cantan las canciones nuevas, con el álbum cosechando el doble de ventas que Liam.

Sin embargo, a diferencia de Liam, que no está dejando atrás la vieja banda., no va muy lejos del plan Oasis / Kinks, a pesar de los remolinos de órganos, toques de electrónica y trompetas de jazz. Aún así, una buena parte de ellos – de la talla de AKA … What a Life! y el “recessionary-tinged” Everybody’s on the Run – son sus mejores canciones en 15 años

Con su camisa pálida y su guitarra roja, Noel podría haberse salido de la era Britpop, y la extraña acústica clásica de Oasis se convierte a la multitud en un coro masivo. Adultos que lloran mientras ellos cantan, y los músicos callejeros que se ganan la vida con Wonderwall y Don’t Look Back in Anger escuhan cómo se debe hacer. No es menos signo de la marca ingenio, aunque no explica la no aparición de los reunidos Stone Roses en la audiencia con las palabras “los rojos están confinados a los cuarteles”, después del 6-1 en el clásico de Manchester. Entonces es hora de volver a golpeadores como (Stranded on the) Wrong Beach, con una batería digna de una calva bestia de taberna desatando un formidable brillo stomp.

Se trata de una gira pop sólidamente disfrutable en lugar de algo más aventurero, pero con un teaser de la intrigante próxima colaboración psicodélica con The Amorphous Androgynous tocando antes del show, evidencia de algo que está por venir. –The Guardian
