Oasis Singles Album Grabs Top Spot On U.K. Chart
Though they broke up last year, [lastfm]Oasis [/lastfm]has captured their eighth number one album with the release of their new singles collection, Time Flies . . . 1994-2009. According to a new report from Gigwise.com, the album grabbed the top spot with ease, outselling its nearest competitor by three times as many copies.
Guitarist [lastfm]Noel Gallagher[/lastfm], has also made recent headlines for his outspoken disapproval of the England’s sluggish start in the 2010 World Cup. In an interview with ITV after Team England’s match against Algeria, he said he doesn’t hold out much hope for his countrymen advancing.
“If they couldn’t beat Algeria tonight I can’t see them beating Slovenia,” he said. “Slovenia are going to need to draw that game to go through, so they’ve got something to play for, it’s all over.”
He continued on to blast team manager Fabio Capello, saying, “Before tonight everyone really respected him, but he’s kind of turned into some kind of silly wizard.”
