Noel Gallagher says David Bowie’s new material “blew his mind,” and says that Bowie’s upcoming album The Next Day proves that old acts don’t have to simply rely on nostalgia. Via NME :
Warming to the idea that Bowie’s return shows up bands reuniting to play old material and reissue classic albums, Gallagher continued: “What it proved to me is that reunions are fucking shite.
“If you had turned on the news and it had said, ‘David Bowie is to do a fucking series of concerts next year,’ everyone would have gone, ‘Oh great, can’t wait, that’s it, let’s talk about something else.’ But we’re still talking about that song. New music and records rule, but reunions for gigs are shit, you know.”
He added that any upcoming Bowie tour dates would be “fucking bedlam.”
