Noel Gallagher has hinted strongly that he is going to scrap the much mooted second album with Amorphous Androgynous.

In a recent interview he said

 

AVC: Unlike Oasis, the High Flying Birds is a project you’ve financed yourself. Are you coming out ahead in the deal? Are you done with the old way of doing business?
NG: Oh, yeah! I’m coming out ahead. It’s all gone very much according to plan. The second album [with Amorphous Androgynous] ended up having to be scrapped. That cost me a fortune. I made a tour film, which cost me a fortune, which I also scrapped.
AVC: You just said the album you made with Amorphous Androgynous is scrapped. Is that official, or are you still considering releasing it? 
NG: No, I don’t think it will come out. I’m pleased with the songs. The songs that I did when I was in the studio—I’ll probably re-record them. But the moment has passed, I think. Do you know what I mean? When you have records, there’s a window before their moment passes. I’ve already moved on from that Amorphous Androgynous thing. I’ve written a bunch more songs since then, so I’m afraid—unfortunately—the success of this album killed that one. I wasn’t planning on being on tour for 15 months.
AVC: What’s wrong with it? What don’t you like about it?
NG: Well, it was a record that contains songs that weren’t conventional songs. It wasn’t verse-chorus-verse-chorus. They’re a bit trippy and a bit floaty. My songs, in general, they don’t really rely on the mix. They’re all written on acoustic guitar. They’re as good with me just singing them into the microphone in the style of Bob Dylan as they are with a full band. The High Flying Birds album didn’t rely on the mixes. The songs were there. This was a record that—absolutely, 100 percent—relied on the mixes, because they weren’t songs, so to speak. They were grooves and, you know, there weren’t many chords in them. And the mixes weren’t fucking right. And unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go back in and remix it. And now I’m too fucked. I’m fucked. I’ve been on the road for 15 months. I am fucked.

  1. I am glad he scrapped it, good decision, cause it sounded like shit,, all the chemical brother remix shit he does is horrible.. I wouldnt of bought it.. high flying birds is pretty good though… BEADY EYE ALL DAY..

  2. i actually got to hear a few of the tracks from the AA mixed record and they were fucking amazing. really inventive and interesting. unsurprising he dumped it then. i mean, how’s it going to look if the original album, which was received to mass indifference were to be upstaged by the remix record? exactly…..
