2008 08 15 Moyles

Noel Gallagher celebrated finishing his latest album in true rock'n'roll style last night by staying up most of the night on a booze bender after a fan club gig - before going to do a live interview on Chris Moyles' Radio 1 breakfast show while still drunk.

The Oasis mainman had been partying at London's swanky Groucho Club until daybreak before arriving at the Radio 1 studios just up the road off Great Portland Street.

Noel has just finished the latest Oasis album Dig Out Your Soul, which comes out on October 6 and the first single from it, The Shock Of The Lightning, was played for the first time on Moyle's show too.

In the meantime, here's a transcript of some of the best bits of their hilarious conversation.

(About what Noel did last night)

Moyles: What time did you get to bed?

Noel: Quarter to six, (slurring) what time is it?

Moyles: Seven minutes past eight! So you only got two hours?

Noel: Yeah just a bit

Moyles: So were you out last night?

Noel: We did a little gig for about 150 fans from our fan club, the last 150 fans left who could be bothered to turn up…A friend of mine, the 2nd biggest ticket tout in England, officially, was having a fight with some Spanish guy, the 3rd biggest Spanish ticket tout, they were rolling around the street at 6 o clock in the morning, not the best…that's just an average night, I was saying to my missus, I'm too old for this. Scully good morning, he'll still be up trying to justify his obnoxious behaviour. He's just got back from ticket touting in China, he made seven grand.

Moyles: What concert was it?

Noel: It was the opening ceremony. Let's just say we don't condone ticket touting, first come first served, second come pay over the odds, the early bird catches the ticket.

(About the new single)

Noel: Took me ten minutes to write that…eight minutes.

(About the new Oasis drummer)

N: It's Zack on the drums, but now we got a new drummer (Chris Sharrock), I've known Chris for years, when Alan White got the boot by Liam, we actually offered it to Chris, I've known Chris for years, he's brilliant, no we don't audition, it's like you know the songs, can you do it? Can you put up with Liam's nonsense 7 hours in a row? Yep.

C: Zack is now Robbie Williams' drummer, a straight swap

N: Robbie's still officially on strike isn't he? From being brilliant


C: Can't believe you nicked Robbie's drummer!

N: He's just a session drummer, he's not Robbie's drummer

(About being drunk)

C: You're in a good mood today

N: I'm still drunk!
