When he’s not busy feuding with his brother Noel Gallagher has been concentrating on promoting his debut solo album. He recently played a set of shows on these shores, but he was back on home ground last night for this appearance on Jools Holland’s show. “AKA…What a Life!” was one of the first previews of the High Flying Birds project, and here it demonstrates how the older Gallagher sibling has gradually edged away from the Oasis sound. Noel has also improved his singing drastically from the atonal whine that occasionally surfaced on earlier shows by his former band--he clearly has no problems hitting the higher notes in this track. Check it out below, along with an interview by Holland.
