It seems that you’ve been living two lives.
One life, you’re Liam Gallagher, lead singer for a seminal Brit-Pop band.
You have a social security number, pay your taxes, and you… hit paparazzi.
The other life is lived in computers,
where you go by the hacker alias “OurKid
and are guilty of virtually every computer crime we have a law for.
One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not…

Do you hear that, Mr. Gallagher? That is the sound of inevitability.


Oasis – Live Forever,
Rob Dougan – Clubbed to Death

& a dash of Blade Runner

Ladies & Sentients, I give you The MANCtrix.
(Best listened to with a gob full of attitude…)


Looking Back is a Losing Game – Featurette

A couple of you have who the guy on the cover of Looking Back is a Losing Game?
His name is Taylor Mead, writer & performer now 84 years young,  Taylor starred as Tarzan in Andy Warhol’s Tarzan is credited with being “the first underground movie star.”  A beloved icon of the downtown New York art scene since the 60s, he more recently  appeared in  Jim Jarmusch’s  Coffee and Cigarettes.

The other character in the footage is none other than Jackie Curtis, trangendered film star, poet and playwright. Curtis was also known as the “Jackie” in Lou Reed‘s
Walk On The Wild Side .

“Jackie is just speeding away –
Thought she was James Dean for a day…
then I guess she had to crash,
valium would have helped that bash”

As a strange little footnote to this, Jackie Curtis is responsible for giving
Robert De NIro
his break in her play
Glamour, Glory and Gold
Now that’s showbiz!

Looking Back is a Losing Game – Oasis vs Amy Winehouse

I guess this RetroSpector has been feeling all sort of introspective as this is my second track via ‘Winosville’ of late. It’s nonetheless topical seeing as Noel Gallagher has hit out at uber-producer Mark Ronson and troubled singer Amy Winehouse, comparing Brit award-winner Winehouse, 25, to a “destitute horse, whom he believes is well on the way to the glue-factory…

In an interview with NME, the Manchester born singer/guitarist of Oasis, said that he has a huge amount of songs left over from recording sessions for the bands new album ‘Dig Out Your Soul’  which he thinks that Amy, 25, would be perfect for. However, he believes her rampant drug abuse will end her life prematurely, so he’s thinking about Duffy instead.

He told the magazine: “I’ve got a backlog of 30-odd songs just sitting there. I don’t know what the f**k I’m going to do with them all.

“Could I give them to someone else to sing? Well, there’s a few that sound like girls could sing them, but who?

“F**king Amy Winehouse? She’ll be dead before I write another one.”

So this might be the closest you ever get to an official collaboration

Oasis – Don’t Look Back in Anger
Amy Winehouse – Love is a Losing Game

Sounds Like: Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be…
