Information Leafblower would like to wish The Chief a very happy 42nd birthday. I'm gonna go home tonight and have a drink while listening to "Cast No Shadow." Cheers.

PS - Please don't make us wait five years for the next Oasis record.

First time they've played that song live in 12 years! has the details.

When it's all said and done, I think this is my favorite Oasis tune. Total fucking classic.

We've been rehearsing: 'My Big Mouth', 'Half The World Away', 'Bag It Up', and the alternative version of 'The Turning' (the one on the bonus CD from that box-set thing). Unfortunately, as Romeo doesn't do sound-checks, it's almost impossible to change anything. I'm guessing it'll probably fall to me to try some acoustic numbers. We'll have to wait and see.

Noel is one smooth so-and-so. Blame it all on Liam. No one will ever ask him.
