Whilst fans wait for their ticket refunds, the Oasis/Tibet debacle has at least worked out well for one party: That’s Shanghai magazine’s publicity team.
Britain’s best-selling newspaper The Sun is running excerpts from the That’s Shanghai Oasis interview where Liam Gallagher claimed to have no relationship with his brother:
“Me and our kid haven’t got a relationship to be quite honest with ya. He does his thing, and I do my thing. The only time we sort of bump into each other, and that’s rarely, is on stage.”
Running feuds, a complete breakdown of communication- it seems that the Oasis and Tibet situations have more than one thing in common.
Meanwhile, the Mirror also quoted Noel’s philosophy of the correlation between recessions and art, calling That’s a Chinese magazine:
As deepening recession dumps tens of thousands of Britons on the dole, the Oasis guitarist and songwriter believes it can be beneficial for his band. “I hope the financial crisis gets a bit worse – at least we’ll get a few good albums out of it,” Noel, 41, told a Chinese magazine.
So a round of applause for That’s! It may not have turned out to be the only interview with Oasis after all, but it’s now getting more play than Wonderwall at one of our city’s many pubs.
