Noel and Liam Gallagher take aim during film screening
Oasis have rubbished the new Beatles’ album ‘LOVE’ on the day (November 20) it went head-to-head in the charts with the Manchester band’s best of, ‘Stop The Clocks’.
Gallagher brothers, Noel and Liam, rounded on the record of remixed songs at the UK screening of their road movie ‘Lord Don’t Slow Me Down’.
“It’s a pointless exercise,” said Noel Gallagher, adding that he turned the new collection off “after five songs”.
His brother and frontman Liam Gallagher was more scathing declaring the album of tracks re-produced by Beatles producer Sir George Martin and his son, “rubbish!”.
“If you haven’t got The Beatles by now you’re not going to get it,” declared the singer and John Lennon fan. “I’m all Beatled-up!”
The ‘LOVE’ album came about after tracks by the Liverpool group were adapted for Circus De Sole show in Las Vegas.
Oasis made their comments during a question and answer session between all four band members and fans at the only UK screening of the band’s film ‘Lord Don’t Slow Me Down’ held at London‘s Curzon Mayfair cinema.
The film, directed by Baillie Walsh, charts Oasis‘ last world tour which ended in March this year.
Following the band’s UK dates in 2005, it also covers jaunts to the US, Europe, Japan and Australia.
The screening was the only chance British fans had to see the full version of the movie ahead of its DVD release next year.
An edited, 40 minute version of ‘Lord Don’t Slow Me Down’ was shown on Channel 4 the day before (November 19).
Speaking about the movie, Liam Gallagher told fans he was pleased with the finished film, explaining: “I buzzed off myself, I played a blinder.”
His brother Noel meanwhile offered an insight into being the subject of a fly on the wall documentary.
“Baillie Walsh said I wouldn’t notice the cameras after a while,” recalled the guitarist. “You do notice them but I was alright with that, I kind of enjoyed it.”
Meanwhile, fresh from his experience of cameras close hand, Liam waded into this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ show, backing record producer and Liza Minnelli‘s ex-husband David Gest to win the ITV reality TV show, explaining “as long as someone ugly wins” he would be happy.
