Last week Depeche Mode held a press conference to announce the European leg of their 2013 world tour. A few weeks before the official press conference Dave Gahan was interviewed by Consequence Of Sound about the upcoming Depeche Mode album as well as his work on the latest Soulsavers album The Light The Dead See. As for the Depeche Mode portion of the interview, Gahan pretty much said what was revealed in last week's press conference - the album isn't finished, they've got about 20 songs, they're working with Anton Corbijn, etc.  Gahan did however, have a few more words to say about the rumors that Alan Wilder is back in the fold:

"I can say they are absolutely not true. I wish him all the best. It was great [having] him hanging out with us for a couple of days and playing with us at the Albert Hall. It was really a lot of fun and sort of a magical night...He was a real part of the puzzle and still remains on all that stuff that he worked on with us. Alan was really very, very instrumental in leading us in different directions."

Read the full interview over at Consequence of Sound.

The Stone Roses continue their tour in March with a handful of dates in Australia. More dates are expected to be announced soon (fingers crossed for North American dates!) and a new LP is most likely coming sometime in 2013.

In more PiL news, John Lydon was recently scheduled to be interviewed by Iowa station KRUU, however a fake Lydon was the one who called in for the interview! Turns out the imposter was comedian Doug Stanhope. Read how it all went down and stream the interview (that aired!) below. Hard to believe KRUU was duped since Lydon has such a distinctive voice. The fake interview was posted on the station's webpage but was taken down after they realized their error, however Stanhope has uploaded a copy of it which is posted below. 

Finally, take a listen to an interview with the REAL John Lydon with Jeff K over at KDGE - Lydon talked about his love for vinyl/record stores, reveals he's DONE with the Sex Pistols, praised Eddie Vedder, and dissed Marilyn Manson, calling him "a phony Alice Cooper ripoff."

Noel Gallagher released his first solo DVD, International Magic Live at the O2 last week.  Gallagher has done a few interviews to promote the release and in a new interview with RTE he confirmed the second solo album recorded with Amorphous Androgynous has been scrapped because "it didn't sound great," and revealed he'll play fewer Oasis songs on his next world tour.  Of course the subject of Beady Eye came up and Noel had a few nice things to say. Sort of:

"I think their album is pretty good to be honest. They're fantastic musicians...I think they've done alright but it's evident that I'm the one who wrote all the singles in Oasis before we split so it's evident that somebody in that group has got to step up and write some singles. But it's good for a first album. it's not as good as my first album though."

Gallagher also talked about the recent Stone Roses' reunion and reported that from what he's observed (he played a lot of the same festivals with them this summer), he's never seen them so happy. 

Read the full interview with Noel Gallagher here.  Gallagher's DVD International Magic Live at the O2 is out now.

Johnny Marr has revealed his new solo album is finished and will be released in February. The album will be preceded by a single, which is expected to drop in December.

Marr was in London yesterday for the Q Awards where he was named Q Hero. He accepted the award onstage and quipped, "If this is a reward for 25 years of stupid reunion questions, I'll take it. Thanks very much Q." After the awards Marr spoke with the British media and a few short interviews are posted below.
