Noel Gallagher was, of course, chief songwriter in top Manchester scallies Oasis, a band who need absolutely no introduction. But since the demise of (t)his most dysfunctional of stadium bands, Gallagher has pursued a 'definitely-not-just-a-solo' career with the High Flying Birds - another 'Noel Gallagher band' which is really just another vehicle for Noel Gallagher's songs.
His first album - the imaginatively-titled Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - was a low-key affair concentrating on the more acoustic-based songs that he supplied for Oasis. Its follow-up Chasing Yesterday was yet more workmanlike rock, but this time had guest spots from the likes of Johnny Marr and did at least showcase Gallagher's ability to wring out stadium anthems from the simplest of ingredients.
It wasn't until 2017's Who Built the Moon that Noel Gallagher stepped out of Noel Gallagher's comfort zone. The album had psych-tinged production courtesy of David Holmes and saw Gallagher experiment with bolder arrangements, particularly on the insanely catchy lead single Holy Mountain. So whilst it's easy enough to carp about the man, and carp we will, it's good to see Gallagher explore other areas. He's never gonna be David Bowie (except amongst historians of cocaine use maybe) but he's proving himself better than the MOR plodder he often threatens to become. His solo output, like that of his equally big-gobbed brother Liam, should keep Oasis fans happy...until that inevitable 'never going to happen' reunion.

Available on 7” vinyl on Sour Mash. Now on their second album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are doing a bang up job of showing Noel’s softer songwriting side (but please don’t tell him that). Riverman is the third single from Chasing Yesterday, slowing joining the rest of his platin...view item

Ok I'll bite. Remember Christmas in the 1970s? People wearing tartan on Top of the Pops, a balding man in an enormous hat playing guitar, your ageing relatives weeping whilst Wings played on the music centre? Rudolph the Red Nosed Reggae? Well Noel Gallagher's latest single is a quite entertaining mix of things from the 1970s, a Glitter band sto...view item
Who Built The Moon? is the third album by 4 parts ex-Oasis, 1 part ex-Zutons band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Noel Gallagher insists that there are a number of far-flung influences on his new band’s music and the band name, intentionally or otherwise, named a...view item
Mr Noel Gallagher recently released his latest album with his High Flying Birds, named Chasing Yesterday. Possibly quite a revealing title for the former Oasis man to choose? Anyway, The Dying Of The Light is taken from it, and is backed with an exclusive demo version of &lsquo...view item
It’s the not so shouty one from that band and here he is with his not that band but other band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This is the 7” single Lock All The Doors taken from the album, Chasing Yesterday. It’s a driving, swirling piece of catchy rock which feels ...view item
The second solo album by the man from Oasis who isn't the singer. Noel's music is safe as a Volvo and is made up of mid paced ballads and non threatening rockers. This of course is more than enough for much of his fanbase and tracks like “Ballad Of The Mighty I” show that he can still wring out a tune if he wants to....view item
Having been a fan of Oasis and the surrounding bands (Beady Eye & Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds), this album was going to be an interesting one after Noels first solo LP.
The overall feeling of this LP is for me of a much higher standard t...view item
This is the Oasis album where the songs started getting uncontrollably long and slightly psychedelic; it's also the album one of the Gallagher brothers really hates, though I can't remember which one. In this Normanites opinion it might be their best work, a lush, nicely arranged record of ever-optimistic, wilfully mea...view item
