Motormouth Noel Gallagher, fresh from accusations of sexism and from being wounded on stage in Toronto, has now turned his ire toward Jack White and Alicia Keys. The Oasis publicity machine is in full flow ahead of the October release of new album Dig Out Your Soul, and it seems the older Gallagher brother is going to talk (and blog) up a storm between now and then.
So what does Noel think of White’s contribution to the Quantum of Solace soundtrack? "It’s a piss take that the greatest British agent of all time has to be soundtracked by a bunch of fucking Americans,” he told NME. Unfortunately Noel doesn’t know his history, as American artists such as Nancy Sinatra, Carly Simon, Gladys Knight, and even Sheryl Crow have produced theme songs for prior James Bond features.
But Noel seems to want to follow in White’s footsteps, adding: "I’ve written a couple of theme tunes. They haven’t got very Bond-esque titles, so I would have to tailor the title accordingly. The latest one that I wrote, I listened back to it thinking, ”Fucking hell, man! That’d make a fucking great Bond theme’." You can hear the White/Keys collaboration here. [Angryape]
