Noel Gallagher on the musician he thinks is entirely manufactured

The “outspoken musician” is a role that is gradually disappearing. Today’s famous artists are far less interested in upsetting the status quo in a world where drugs, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll are no longer considered desirable lifestyles due to shifting health attitudes and the desire for interpersonal kindness due to fear of online retaliation. However, some continue to defy social conventions; Noel Gallagher is among the last remaining champions of fierce musical rivalry.

The frontman of the band, Liam, and his younger brother, the former Oasis songwriter, have always been among the most vocal musicians this nation has produced. The group’s extra-musical quality supported the bold essence of their sonics since they first emerged in the early 1990s. This was partly because of their working-class Mancunian background and enduring punk spirit. They gained respect, fame, and a lot of criticism for their alleged haughtiness.

Oasis and the Gallaghers polarize opinions, as illustrated by a remark from Britain’s greatest vitriol master, Keith Richards, who paradoxically inspired acts like theirs. At one point, he called Oasis “crap,” but then he said, “These guys are just annoying.” Once you’re an adult, return and try to hang on.

Oasis responded to the slight in typical fashion by covering the Rolling Stones song “Street Fighting Man.” Noel Gallagher would later clarify that the group’s motivation was “just to piss him off.” “He’s talking about how bad Oasis are. But when he gets the cheque for about $50,000 from royalties..,” the man continued.

It is clear that Noel Gallagher was never afraid to express his views or irritate the so-called greats. Even though Richards has been rock’s most well-known flat-track bully for decades, taking him down is a huge accomplishment—this is just one of Gallagher’s many scalps. He has mockingly dissed a number of well-known figures in the past. He criticized everything from their aesthetics to their music to—in the case of the Kaiser Cheifs—even their girlfriends.

It’s no secret that Gallagher despises the workings of the major music labels. Given his punk background and Oasis’s rise on Alan McGee’s independent tastemakers, Creation Records, it should come as no surprise. One extremely popular person he took potshots at for his alleged manufactured nature is Harry Styles, the former member of One Direction. He was a boy band member and X Factor star in his early years, but he has since transformed into something his hordes of fans have called a rockstar, similar to David Bowie.

Not surprisingly, given Styles’ rock “influences,” Gallagher believes this to be a bunch of old bullshit. The Manchester native claims he is a pop star, not a maverick like those who admired him in his prime.

The guitarist for Oasis stated to Absolute Radio, “Mavericks are not liked by the music industry.” The absence of bands nowadays is due to the mainstream status of bands like Oasis, Primal Scream, Blur, and Pulp in the 1990s. The mainstream is made up mostly of guys who are half drunk and high on drugs on Tuesdays, which the music industry finds objectionable. They don’t like that. They say things like, “Wear this dress and shut it,” because they like Harry Styles. Put this on, belt that out, and head home. That is essentially what transpired.

But Gallagher’s criticism of Styles goes beyond that. He also disparaged Styles’ 2017 smash single, “Sign of the Times.” To him, it’s nothing more than the songwriting machine of the industry. He believes his cat could have written it in ten minutes.
