Tokyo 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Budokan, Tokyo, Japan; April 15, 2015. Very good to excellent audio - matrix of audience and IEM.

There was a time when Noel Gallagher and Oasis could do no wrong when it came to Brit Pop and, as with most things, that too passed. Like Paul Weller, Noel has a good ear for pop and George Martin’s claiming him to be “the finest songwriter of his generation” is not without merit. On March 2, 2015, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released Chasing Yesterday, the follow-up to 2011’s successful debut album.

This is what Noel posted at

Tokyo, The Budokan, a great way to end the tour… 2 nights [April 15 and 16]. Excellent shows. First night was my favourite. The sun even came out. Lovely! Japanese fans you are without doubt the most strangely strange yet oddly normal people in the whole world. Thank you for everything… until Fuji Rock… SAYO-FUCKIN’-NARA! You currently find me at home, alone, in our kitchen. Nancy and the 2 princes have gone out for the day to a safari park. Even the cat’s gone out!! The silence is deafening… bit like in Osaka!! Keep it livid yeah?

  2. So who’s this? What you tellin’ me? He is one a pair of brothers from Manchester and they had a band named after an insipid fruit based softdrink? They based all their material on the Beatles? . . . but sounded more like Staus Quo?
    The rumour mill is they’re reforming?
    If they can stop slaggin each other off and rolling around in the dirt long enough?
    Which one’s run out of money then?
    Oasis you say?
    No doesn’t ring a bell over here!

  3. Let’s see - I’ve got my fast song, my turgid ballady slow song, stuff that sounds a bit arty/Beatley and stuff that sounds like Slade, the kind of pub rock Oasis were best at.

    Load of shite. Always was. Always will be,

  4. I like him and when i saw him at the o2 it was good despite being a tuesday night and being repeatedly jumped on by the most annoying woman in the world who was sitting next to me. I was hoping id be able to find a good recording so i could listen to the tour without being jumped on so thanks!

  5. The “best songwriter of his generation”? My goodness . . . the lyrics on the new record are as hackneyed as it gets. Tuneful but come on already.

  6. The “best songwriter of his generation”?

    according to his mother.

    By psychic earl on Apr 24, 2015

  7. i think who ever used that phrase did so to garner responses exactly like that! of course he isnt the ‘best songwriter of his generation’. thats just ridiculous. how can best be measured anyway? one can say hottest or most prolific or best selling perhaps but just best? define best! what constitutes best? ones favorite i can see. i think once its determined that its pop.. as does the label itself when its stated its brit pop.. the entire notion of best is out the window. now he surely isnt the dylan or neil young of of generation. hes not the elvis costello or john lennon of his generation. hes not the willie nelson of brit pop is he? or the pete seeger? woody guthrie? neil diamond bernie taupin holland dozier holland carole king? john hiatt john prine? cat stevens james taylor jackson browne?? willie dixon randy newman? omg. i better stop. i could go on for hours.. and seriously i would but id still leave out 100s of amazing seriously good songwriters. noel gallagher isnt even in the top 300. best? ha. not even very good! good? sure.

  8. My goodness… a rarity - a comment by darth I actually agree with!

    Noel’s a lousy songwriter and at best, a mediocre talent, albeit a shade more talented than his whiny idiot brother.

    Swappers is right about the Quo comparison. When Oasis hit big in the mid 90’s I genuinely couldn’t understand what the fuss was about and sneered that they were nothing more than a modern version of Status Quo - every song using the same chords and sounding the same… crummy rip-offs and mash-ups of old Beatles and Slade songs. It pisses me off that there are many great unsigned talents out there struggling to get heard thanks to “pay to play” whilst Noel gets big gigs and money when he deserves to be stood in the dole queue alongside that tosspot brother of his.

  9. Lyrically, he’s pretty terrible I agree (tends to stick words in just cos they’re convenient rather than because they mean anything or add anything to the song). But Oasis at their best had a fantastic sound. In particular when they were playing live, the power they put over was the essence of Rock n Roll.
    And however irritating his brother was, there was something about his arrogance and sneering that is - if we’re honest - also the essence of Rock n Roll. Isn’t it all supposed to be a bit cocky, a bit brattish?
    Well, I’d take Liam Gallagher above Mr Springsteen (and all his endless blathering about cars and oil refineries closing down) any day.

    Pub rock.

  11. Wow ! Such negativity all round - remember Dirty Harry “opinions are like assholes - we’ve all got one but don’t necessarily want to hear it”

    He’s good at what he does…end of story

    By Dale on Apr 25, 2015

  12. if no one wanted to hear it there wouldnt be forums like this for ppl to offer those opinions. and arent u offering your opinion when u say theres such negativity all round? or that u dont want to hear others? how about u may not agree with what others have to say but u should defend their right to say it? yeah i didnt think ud like that one.

    By darth on Apr 25, 2015

  13. I like the bloke. I think he does a good job. Went to one of his concerts and it was grand. If you don’t like him, don’t listen to him. I don’t want a Holiday in the Sun.

    By johnny rotten on Apr 25, 2015

  14. Oh little darthy, if only I’d let your spunk-donor dad root me in the bum that night instead of letting him plow my minge, we wouldn’t have to read your sad spew here all the time. Once again, my apologies to the public for the defective fruit of my loins.
