How was your night?

I went to see Noel Gallagher last night [at the 3Arena, Dublin]. It was great, as you can expect. Following this, there was much talk about an aftershow party in the Grand Social featuring Noel’s brother Paul and Oasis founding member Bonehead both DJing. I went down and paid €8 to get in.

It was easily one of the worst DJ sets I have ever heard and was attended by many Pretty Green-clad fanboys all staring up to get a glimpse of “a Gallagher”. I’ve been to a few of these aftershow gigs. They all get big publicity (especially on the Internet). Not one ever lived up to expectation.Last night was the final straw.

Interpol aftershow recently featured [Interpol drummer] Sam Fogarino spinning some of the worst music I have ever heard. I didn’t know pretentious metal was a genre. The Paul Weller aftershow had about 5 people watch guitarist Steve Cradock play average songs without actually mixing them together off his laptop. I could go on.

Does anyone else ever go to these “(un)official aftershow DJ sets” only to find they’ve wasted their money on some rubbish?

Anyone?

“I don’t like reading interviews with people and they explain their songs to you line by line. For instance, I was hanging out with our dear friend Bono in the summer, and he was playing me the U2 album before it came out. With him being a lyricist and a singer, he will explain to you what every fucking sentence is about.

“I said to him, ‘Don’t tell me what it’s about. I’ll tell you what it’s about when it’s finished.’ He was like, ‘Ohhh yeah, man.’ It’s like when I first heard Martha, My Dear on the White album, and then I found out he had a dog called Martha. It fucking ruined it, d’ya know what I mean? It’s about a dog? Fuck off! I don’t wanna hear that.”
