Apparently convinced he's ninety years old, Noel Gallagher has tried to make a purchase. The Mirror has the details:
“I went to Selfridges and asked for a ghetto blaster. The guy looked at me like I was asking for an obsolete part of a spaceship.Actually, if you were looking for obsolete parts of spaceships, wouldn't that be futuristic rather than retro?
“I was going, ‘You know? Handle, two speakers, put a CD in and you get music?’ Eventually, the guy said: ‘CD? We’ve got iPod docks.’ What’s going on?”
You've got to love that plaintive 'what's going on?', as if iPods were somehow newfangled devices and hadn't been around for ten years. I wonder how Noel is getting on with digital switchover? Has he lost BBC Two?
This just in: Selfridges have released CCTV footage of Gallagher attempting to make his purchase:
