A Day In The Life Of Noel Gallagher
This is what separates Noel Gallagher from your average, Morrissey-obsessed indie rock band. Noel Gallagher will go and say some legitimately insane shit and it's almost impossible to imagine him ever subsequently apologizing or whining about how some mean journalist chose only to focus on the negative things he had to say. This country could probably use its own Noel Gallagher (1).

Anyway. On with one day's worth of Noel soundbites.

On the new Beatles record: "It's a pointless exercise."

On the Scissor Sisters: "I like 'Laura,' from the first record, but it's music for squares, man. They're huge in England, but there's no accounting for bad taste as far as the English are concerned."

On environmentalists: "Greens are fucking hippies with no place in the world. How do you suggest we get millions of Chinese not to have a fridge? Or get millions of Americans to stop using their big, stupid cars?"

On the war in Iraq: "Blair made an almighty cock-up going to war in Iraq... You get a million people walking through Hyde Park -- 'don't send the troops' and all that... The troops want to go, all they want to do is fight! They're soldiers. They're loving it, until they get shot -- then they're claiming compensation. If you're bothered about getting shot -- here's a thing -- don't join the army."

(1) More on this later. Probably.
