Latest Jools performances: Noel Gallagher and Björk

November 23, 2011

Noel Gallagher performed “AKA…What a Life” from High Flying Birds, and Björk performed her beautiful Crystalline off of Biophilia. I think I still like Thunderbolt (Tesla coils included) out of what I’ve heard and watched off Biophilia so far. And as far as I can tell, Noel is still throwing out some mad drama into the press these days. I guess all publicity is good publicity?

OFFICIAL VID: Noel Gallagher – Aka.. What a Life

Here’s the new video for Noel Gallagher’s Aka.. What a Life, off his upcoming solo album. It’s definitely a VERY interesting video… and on top of that, it has Russell Brand, which only makes it that much more interesting (or should I say, odd?). I like the darkness and quirkiness. Skip to 3:30 for the actual song if you don’t want to wade through the strange Brand intro. From what I can glean, it seems to be a reference or play on a sinister interpretation of Alice in Wonderland. The song itself is pretty decent too; I’m starting to think Noel Gallagher’s solo album might actually be fairly good.

Well, this is surprising…

Listened to the new Noel Gallagher track AKA.. What a Life. I guess I was expecting the usual stuff, this is much more dance-y and upbeat than what I thought it’d be and it’s actually quite catchy and could grow on me. That’s proof to ya to always keep your mind open and check things out.. was getting a lil sick of all the Gallagher brothers’ drama and BS flying around the machine and all the attitude in the past that Oasis put up despite major landscape changing work back in the day (respect just the same of course). It ain’t genius but hey not bad at all! Growing, growing…
