Noel Gallagher likes M. Ward

    Via: Merge Blog
    Someone at Merge Records happened to come across an interview with Noel Gallagher in Exclaim Magazine, where he heaps praise upon M. Ward. I find it amazing that even when he’s being kind, Gallagher still manages to come across as a total douche.
    Exclaim: What are your current fixations?
    Noel: Well I”’m really into the Kasabian album, but I”’ve just got an album in New York by a guy called M. Ward, it”’s called Post-War. Fookin”’ hell man. I”’ve never heard this guy before, and I was doing a photo shoot, as us rock stars generally do, and some guy was playing it in the background. I was like, ””What”’s that fookin”’ music?”” And he”’s like, [adopts American accent] ””Dude, it”’s M. Ward.”” One of the best albums I”’ve ever heard actually.
    You can read the rest of the interview here. There’s even some audio.
