Der amerikanische Rolling Stone hat sich in einem (wie immer) lesenswerten Interview mit Noel Gallagher über das vergangene Musikjahr unterhalten. Und, sagen wir’s mal so, Noel teilt die hiesige Meinung zum letzten Arcade Fire Album – auch wenn er es sich nicht einmal angehört hat…
Rolling Stone: Did you hear Arcade Fire’s new album?
Noel Gallagher: I haven’t heard it. Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own asshole. This is not the Seventies, okay? Go and ask Billy Corgan about a double album. Who has the fucking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album? How arrogant are these people to think that you’ve got an hour and a half to listen to a fucking record?
Did you see that they’ve asked people to wear formal wear or costumes at their shows? [Ed. Note: Arcade Fire has clarified that this dress code is “super not mandatory.”]
Noel Gallagher: [Sighs] Well, what’s the point of that? Do you know what the point of that is? That is to take away from the shit disco that’s coming out of the speakers. Because everybody’s dressed as one of the Three Musketeers on acid. “What was the gig like?” “I don’t know, everyone was dressed as a teddy bear in the Seventies.” “Yeah, but what was the gig like?” “Ah, fuck knows, man, I have no idea. I was dressed as a flying saucer.” “Yeah, but what was the gig like?” “Fuck knows. I don’t know. Seen Cheech and Chong, there, though.” Not for me.
You know Bowie sings backup on one of Arcade Fire’s new songs, right?
Noel Gallagher: Oh, that’s a shame
