Noel Gallagher takes a pop at chart music
Noel Gallagher has criticised current chart music and lauded the bygone days of Britpop.
The musician told the Sunday Mirror that he believes the era of the likes of his former band Oasis and Blur were the "last great assault" on the charts - and bemoaned the apparent homogenisation of pop music today.
He even took a stab at the last Christmas edition of Top of the Pops. He said:
"The days of Oasis and Blur were the last great assault on the charts by alternative music. Christmas Top of the Pops was dreadful. Every song sounded like it came from the same field of music. There was a rap in there somewhere, everyone sang in a transatlantic soul voice and it was rubbish. The Britpop thing was vastly different. We were all great live bands, and that's gone now."
