have been talking to Shortlist
about their upcoming album, "BE"
, which is being produced by TV on The Radio
's Dave Sitek
. And, according to front man Liam Gallagher
, Sitek's minimalist production techniques will be proof to the band's critics that Liam can actually sing:
"I'm sick of f--king idiots saying I can't sing, you know what I mean? So I thought f--k this, no effects, none of that double tracking as much. Let's get in there bare, this is how I sound, man. This is how my voice sounds so hopefully people will like it and get off my f--king back ... It's how I sound round the f--king house or on the back of a camel or whatever."
Gallagher has also stated (via NME
) that he has become a Belieber after hearing about Justin Bieber
arriving two hours late for a London show:
"Anyone who goes on two hours late is f--king right in my book, man. All these so-called rock bands that sit backstage going, 'Hey, let's wait 15 minutes.' F--k that, wait two hours and 15 minutes! He's kicked the f--king arse out of it no one will beat that, ever. So get off his f--king back, man: I am a Belieber!
