Noel Gallagher On The Recording Of Oasis' (What's The Story) Morning Glory? And More

The new copy of MOJO that features an interview with Noel Gallagher is out now in stores and available digitally here below is an extract from it.

MOJO: Did you always know if a song would be sung by you or by Liam? Could any of them have gone the other way.

Noel Gallagher: "No. The only time I laid down the law was Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger. I was so fucked off with him walking off stage and me having to take over and do the gig. I remember thinking, If I'm going to keep doing this, I want a big fucking song to sing. I said, "You're singing one or the other but not both." He hated Wonderwall. He said it was trip-hop There speaks a man who's never heard trip-hop. He wanted to sing Don't Look Back In Anger but it came apparent during the recording that Wonderwall was going to be the tune. If I'm being honest I shouldn't have sung either of them because I wasn't really a singer then".

MOJO: So you don't like the recording of Don't Look Back In Anger?

Noel Gallagher: I don't like any of the recordings on (What's The Story) Morning Glory? It's the only album we never did demos for. I was writing on tour and I'd planned on finishing the songs when I got to the studio and we never got around to it. Cast No Shadow is half-written. Wonderwall. Morning Glory.

MOJO: Last year Wonderwall became the first song from the 1990s to exceed one billion streams. Any theory as to why it's become The One?

Noel Gallagher: I have no idea. It beggars belief. Wonderwall is one of my least favourite songs because it's not finished. If I could somehow twist time and go back there, I'd pick a different song for our calling card. Probably Some Might Say.
