Noel Gallagher says he doesn’t “give a fuck” about what “geezers dressed in parkas” want from his solo music

Gallagher was speaking in a new mini-documentary which explores the making of last year's 'Who Built The Moon?' LP

Noel Gallagher has defended the psychedelic direction of the most recent High Flying Birds album ‘Who Built The Moon?’, saying that he “never gave a fuck” about upsetting any of his fans with his solo music.

‘Who Built The Moon?’ was the third studio album from Gallagher and the High Flying Birds, and came out back in November 2017. The record saw Gallagher adopt what NME described as a “free-wheeling solo freedom” in terms of its musical direction.

Speaking about the making of ‘Who Built The Moon?’ in a new Discogs documentary, Gallagher explained that he did recognise that some of his fans had been hoping that he would make a return to more Oasis-friendly material with the record.

“There’s a load of geezers dressed in parkas who want you to carry on doing what it is they’ve kind of missed out on,” he explained. “And it’s amazing when you see the next generation of Oasis fans and all that: I respect that. When I’m out and I’m touring, I play all the stuff: y’know, what I think [fans] would like to hear.

“When I’m in the studio, I don’t give a fuck what they want,” he declared. “I never gave a fuck.”

Earlier this week, Noel remarked that he wants his live shows to feel like “a sexless orgy”.
