"At present we're looking at other alternatives," he says...

Noel Gallagher has said that the next Oasis album ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants’ will not come out on Creation, despite a statement from their management saying that they had no plans to leave.

“We don’t want to put our album out on a record label that’s like a ghost town when you walk in the office,” he said in Melody Maker. “I was in there the other day, and everybody’s like doom and gloom. ‘We’re out of a job in June, all we’ve got to look forward to is the new Oasis album…'”

“But is anybody going to give it fucking 100 per cent?” he said. “At the moment we’re looking at other alternatives.”

This echos Liam, quoted in the Sunday Mirror at the weekend saying that he felt that Alan McGee had betrayed the band and that the label couldn’t afford to do the new album properly because they had spent all their money signing “a load of dickheads”.

Meanwhile, a one sided 12 inch vinyl promo of the first track from the album ‘Fuckin’ In The Bushes’ has arrived at the NME offices. A Led Zeppelin-esque instrumental with samples taken from film dialogue, it has some similarities to ‘Swamp Song’ by way of ‘The Queen Is Dead’ by The Smiths. The promo has the Creation label on it.
