PHEW: Of course, when bands release new stuff you wait with baited breath - if its an excellent band, you worry that they may have lost it. If it's Oasis, you worry that maybe - just maybe - they've found the spark that made them look as if they could be the band they clearly still think that they are.
Having heard The Hindu Times on Mark & Lard just now, I can breath again. The biggest laughing dog in all of rock still blusters and blows. Imagine George Harrison playing 'Does Your Mother Know?' by Abba on a sitar. Possibly in his death throes. It's now clear why this single took so long to get released - it's so half baked and lightweight, it would have needed jets scrambled to get it down out the sky...
