Noel Gallagher Disses Ed Sheeran

Terminal gob-shite Noel Gallagher is shooting his mouth off again and this time Ed Sheeran is in the firing line.  NME report that Gallagher has expressed his dismay at the fact Ed Sheeran will play three gigs at Wembley Stadium later this year.

However, Gallagher is not happy this is happening.  He told NME that “I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a fucking guitar it seems subversive, but it’s fucking not.”

Gallagher continues by giving a pretty bleak appraisal of the current music scene.  He said,

“It’s a strange time, and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for fucking forever. It’s not all over, but it’ll go back to the way it was in the early ‘80s where indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level. In the early ‘80s everyone at indie labels, even major labels, were trying to push this music to the fore because everything else was shit, and maybe it’ll happen again, but I don’t see it for the next decade.”

Of course Sheeran might justifiably fire back “What does a washed up has been know about the current music scene.”  After all Sheeran’s Album “X” is the best selling album of the year and in addition it has been streamed over 430 million times.  Figures Gallagher can only dream about.

Sheeran took to twitter in response to Gallagher’s comment that he can’t live in such a world simply saying “I can live in it, its really enjoyable”

Sheeran has sold out three 80,000 shows at Wembley, he will play at at this year’s 57th Grammy Awards and is nominated for three awards at this year’s ceremony.

Gallagher on the other hand has done none of these things.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
