Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds: Holy Mountain

I was never a great Oasis fan. I took the side of Blur in the Great Britpop battle and Pulp were arguably better than either of them.

But I do like this, the current single from Noel Gallagher's new band.

Being Noel Gallagher it is derivative. I sense Ricky Martin and Plastique Bertrand in there, and the recorder comes straight from the 1960s - the Rolling Stones, say, or Manfred Mann.

In his defence, though, rock has been going so long that it is now almost always derivative.

And if you are going to have a recorder player it is entirely admirable that he should dress like that and have that haircut.
