I was listening to All Around The World from Be Here Now yesterday and I have to say I love the first 3 or 4 minutes! All the other repetitive crap should have been cut out! What were they thinking? I wonder if there is a shortened version/radio edit out there. This is one of the few instances where a radio edit wouldn't take anything away from the song!

It's a bit early in the midnight hour for me, to go through all the things that I wanna be...

Cracking song, that.

Q have got a new special on the band this month.

I found this about the album online:


BAG IT UP
Driving psychedelic opener. Inspired by the track Baron Saturday, from The Pretty Things' 1968 concept album SF Sorrow.

Noel Gallagher: "Slow pounding acid rock. The Pretty Things vs The Pink Floyd on glue".
Andy Bell: "One of the first three tracks that Noel recorded at Gem's place (Archer's home studio) they were done in a very quiet, very basic way and they became the blueprint".

THE TURNING
Dreamy piano lead-verses explode into euphoric choruses featuring Liam inciting the listener to "Shake your reptile baby".

Noel Gallagher: "The Roses doing The Stooges with a nod to The World Of Twist. RIP Tony O".
Gem: "Liam's vocal is mega, strong but he's not caning it".

WAITING FOR THE RAPTURE
Riff-heavy number featuring Noel's most passionate vocal yet as he exhorts an unknown female to 'get me off the merry-go-round'

Noel Gallagher: "A love song inspired by the meeting of an Angel in Ibiza"
Andy Bell: "I think its about Sara, Noel can put things in a down-to-earth way that goes right to the core".

THE SHOCK OF THE LIGHTNING
Propulsive rocker with addictive 'Come in, come out' refrain that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Definitely Maybe.

Gem Archer: "Noel literally just played it the night before [it was recorded]. Did a little one-man-band job, played the drums, the bass, the guitar, sung it and came back up the stairs".

I'M OUTTA TIME
Beatles-esque Liam ballad with vulnerable lyric (''If I'm to fall/ Would you be there to applaud?''). Samples John Lennon from a radio interview done two days before his death.

Noel Gallagher: "Deceptively brilliant, one for the ladies".
Gem Archer: "It's really heartfelt, there's a melancholy there and that's what Liam's showing".

(GET OFF YOUR) HIGH HORSE LADY
Bluesy acoustic stomp supported by handclaps and slammed drawers. Distorted vocal effects initially disguises identity of singer (it's Noel).

Noel Gallagher: "The oldest song on the album, originally demoed for Heathen Chemistry. Wouldn't have made the album, but the bass is so heavy, it forced its way onto the final cut".

FALLING DOWN
Tumbling acid soaked drone-pop, akin to a less electronic take on Setting Sun, Noel's 1996 excursion with The Chemical Brothers.

Noel Gallagher: "Three chords, one note Krautpop! The kind of song I've wanted to write for years".

TO BE WHERE THERE'S LIFE
Hypnotic Gem Archer song with rubbery bassline and a promise to lead the listener out into the big wide world.

Gem Archer: "It was just a groove, a bassline and Noel was like 'that's the one, write some words for it'. It's a stream of consciousness. And there's no guitars on it which is another thing I like as well".

AIN'T GOT NOTHIN'
A trippy take on late 60's Who, written by Liam following Liam's infamous hotel bar brawl in Munich in 2002.

Noel Gallagher: "Heavy metal Motown. Bang"!
Gem Archer: "Liam wanted it to sound like The Who with Ginger Baker on drums, playing while a fight was happening".

THE NATURE OF REALITY
Lysergic Andy Bell rocker, featuring the lyric ''The nature of reality/ Is pure subjective fantasy''

Andy Bell: "It was written at an odd time in my life, when my marriage had run its course. I taught Noel the guitar parts and then let him roll with it. Gem played bass on it. I don't play on it at all. I wanted to make sure that it sounded right in the control room where it was being played.

SOLDIER ON
Herbal-scented, trancey closer, discovered by The Coral on a hard drive at Oasis's old studio, Wheeler's End. None of the band could remember it until Andy Bell found it on his iPod.

Gem Archer: "The Coral said to Noel 'that's a top tune' so Noel said 'What's this?' and I said I haven't got a clue. It was an old Liam song I demoed with him around 2004 or 2005 and couldn't remember".

Noel Gallagher: "A metaphor for ones-day-to-day existence, the legendary General Dread [Noel's reggae style alter ego]floats out some melodica in the outro".

I think the strange thing about All Around The World is that when you're listening to it it really does feel 9 minutes long yet D'You Know What I Mean? (which clocks in at nearly 8 minutes) 'feels' a hell of a lot shorter, more like 5 minutes.

Anyway, Zoots here's the shortened version of 'All Around The World':

Thanks for the link, Quiet! I forgot about the single/video version.

Strangely enough, after watching that it feels too short.

I saw them last night. It was awesome!!

The new songs worked well live, even though I didn't know what most were called. I believe they played 4-5 songs.

My only complaints is that they completely disregarded 3 albums and the show was relatively short. It started at 10 p.m. and ended at 11:40 p.m. Given their back catalogue they could have played 5-6 more songs easily. Oh well. It was still a cracker!

Setlist (as I remember it)

Rock 'n Roll Star
Lyla
The Shock of the Lightning
Cigarettes and Alcohol
The Meaning of Soul
*new song
The Masterplan
Slide Away
Morning Glory
The Importance of Being Idle
Wonderwall
Supersonic

Encore

Don't Look Back in Anger
Falling Down
Champagne Supernova
I Am The Walrus

Man, I really wanna see these guys live already!!

Clip of a new Liam-written song:


LIAM Gallager's tribute to John Lennon is hailed as brilliant | The Sun |Showbiz|Bizarre



Sounds like it has a lot of potential.

Isn't Liam Gallagher's entire career a tribute to John Lennon?




Yeah, I know. Too easy.

These new songs aren't drastically different from what we've heard before, but I like them.

I really fail as a long-time Oasis fan Haven't heard any of the new material, haven't followed any of the news, and missed them when they came through town last week *hands head low and shuffles out of thread*

This made my day, week, month, year, whatever:

Dude Bum-Rushes Noel Gallagher During Oasis Gig | Pitchfork

Too bad it wasn't Liam.

And I love how the hooligan fans actually keep cheering after it happens.

I'm considering moving to Toronto just to show my gratitude.
