Noel Gallagher: “The reason why people have responded to Supersonic Documentary so well is this: it finishes at the right point”

During an interview with Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music, Noel Gallagher expressed his opinion about Supersonic success.


He said: “The thing why people have responded to the film so well is this: it finishes at the right point. So it doesn’t discuss the long, protracted fall-out, which nobody wants to get into. So it’s kind of this rise to the biggest gigs there ever was at that time. So it’s all about the glory.”

About his brother he admitted: “I think Liam comes out of it quite well, as some kind of mad drunken mystic from another time. If only that had lasted, you know…”

Gallagher added he hopes the film will inspire new generations of musicians: “When I finished watching it and I had to sign off of it, I was saying, ‘Honestly, if this doesn’t inspire people to pick up guitars, I don’t know what will.’ Because no one in that band was a genius – no one, not even me, and I wrote all the songs.nIt’s quite sad in a way because it kind of shines a light on the way the music business was, particularly for guitar music, which hasn’t got a presence on national radio any more. And it makes you feel kind of happy that it happened, but kind of quite sad that it’s not like that any more.”
