From Who Built The Moon? out now on Sour Mash/UMG.
In what’s sure to send his little brother off the rails, Noel Gallagher’s latest video features Charlotte Marionneau, his notorious scissors player, reading a book. Her book is not miked so I don’t think her page flipping is part of the performance, but her mere presence is guaranteed to drive Liam nuts.
“She’s French and she’s eccentric to say the least. I said to her, can you play the tambourine? She said, [adopts French accent] ‘I cannot play the tambourine.’ I said, ‘Oh right. Shaker?’ ‘Non. I can play the scissors.’ She brought them in and I was looking at my bass player going, if that’s not the greatest thing you’ve ever seen then tell me what is. A French bird in a cape playing the scissors? It doesn’t get any better than that does it?”
So now we’ve got a French bird in a chair reading a book.
And the song? It’s not as much of a banger as “Holy Mountain” but at least nobody’s going to say this one sounds like Ricky Martin.
Since releasing the “Holy Mountain” single, Noel has put out lyric videos for the rest of the songs on Who Built The Moon? Here’s a bunch of them.
