Plus Noel Gallagher lobbies Daniel Craig to do 'next Bond theme'
Oasis performed with a choir last night (October 26) as they wrapped up the 2008 BBC Electric Proms in London.
Joined by the Crouch End Festival Chorus on six songs at the Roundhouse in Camden, the band played a set that mixed their usual rock ‘n’ roll with the choral backing.
Already buoyed by their rehearsals with the 50-piece on ensemble, with Noel Gallagher calling them “immense, celestial in fact”, the choir joined in on ‘The Masterplan’, ‘I’m Outta Time’, ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, and the show’s climax of ‘Champagne Supernova’ and the traditional closing cover of The Beatles‘ ‘I Am The Walrus’.
You can watch the collaboration on ‘Champagne Supernova’ below, while more songs can be seen at bbc.co.uk/electricproms.
The touted cover of The Rolling Stones ‘We Love You’, however, did not materialise.
With the sold out audience including James Bond actor Daniel Craig, guitarist Noel Gallagher took the opportunity to throw his hat into the ring to do the next theme – taking a pop at Jack White and Alicia Keyes current Bond Theme in the process.
“James Bond is upstairs, I might see if I can blag it so that he can get me the next James Bond theme tune instead of fucking dopey Americans doing it all the time,” Noel told the audience.
He also suggested that his friend and former Shockwaves NME Awards host Russell Brand was on a similar blag, hoping to score a part as “some effeminate James Bond baddie”.
