I’ve just listened to the latest episode of Desert Island Discs. Noel Gallagher shared his history and his thoughts with Kirsty Young.
I could sit and listen to him for hours as I love hearing his thoughts on music. He should have his own radio station.
I second guessed most of his choices (Smiths, Pistols and the Beatles, of course) but was surprised by Let’s Dance by David Bowie.
It was wonderful to hear Voodoo Ray by A Guy Called Gerald on Radio 4. The song has great cultural and personal political significance to a certain generation.
When The Ronettes’ Be My Baby started I realised for the first time (d’oh!) that must have been an inspiration for The Jesus and Mary Chain. Play the opening lines of Be My Baby and Just Like Honey and judge for yourself!
