The 10.30 Ligger: Oasis make surprise nightclub appearance…

Your daily gossip blast from Planet Indie

Welcome to the first ever 10.30 Ligger: your morning stop-off to find out who in the world of indie has been doing what, where and why.

First up, Oasis bassist Andy Bell spun some tunes for an hour at the This Feeling clubnight on Friday night (September 29), prompting an attack of camera-phones around the DJ booth.

Bell wasn’t amused by the scurry, and snubbed fan requests for pictures, while he span his Gallagher-approved set, which featured the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Simian Mobile Disco.


He’d obviously cheered up later though, as he was spotted drinking champers with a few WAGS.

Elsewhere Chris Morris, star of The Day Today and Brass Eye, made a rare public appearance at Islington’s Union Chapel to watch Adam Green.

Afterwards, he went out drinking on nearby Upper Street with Green and The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt, before throwing his bike in the back of a taxi and heading home. Green and Barratt then went on to indie’s gaff du jour The Hawley Arms in Camden.

Also spotted: former Popworld presenter Alex Zane shouting at an Adolf Hitler waxwork at Madame Tussauds.

Finally, back in Camden, Kyle Falconer of The View was hanging around outside the Barfly in the early hours chatting to a member of south-London indie rockers Ratty Rat Rat, who goes by the name of Ratrick Swayze. We’re guessing Kyle didn’t head back to Ratrick’s for a night-cap – he lives in an abandoned toilet factory squat with his band members.

Check back tomorrow at 10:30 BST for the next 10:30 Ligger. E-mail your spots and photos to with ’10:30 Ligger’ as the subject.
