Two interesting videos for you to check out if you're a fan of Noel Gallagher.

Discogs premiered a documentary about Gallagher's third solo album Who Built The Moon?. The short film provides a glimpse into the making of Gallagher's psychedelic pop record and features commentary from producer David Holmes, engineer Emre Ramazanoglu, and legendary guitar god Johnny Marr, who appears on the song "If Love Is The Law." Holmes discussed instructing Gallagher to come to the studio without any songs and only a bagful of guitar pedals. The producer marveled at Gallagher's guitar playing and Gallagher's addiction to guitar pedals, joking that Gallagher seemingly traded in his drug addiction for a pedal addiction.

Who Built The Moon? is sonically different than Gallagher's previous albums and has seemed to divide public opinion. Marr offered up his philosophy on branching out and fan reaction:

"I think if you make a record that splits opinion is a good thing as long as it's a good record.

If you've been around a long time you're always going to have people mouth off and have certain kinds of opinions if you break out of the norm a bit, that's understandable. The spirit of what he does, the key thing is still there and the proof is when you go to his gigs and the audience generally love the new stuff. Considering the love that's there for the old stuff, he's doing all right!"

Meanwhile Gallagher recently appeared on Lars Ulrich's show It's Electric and chatted about Gallagher's solo career, Oasis, and their shared love for U2. Gallagher called U2 his "favorite live band ever" and gave them props for their evolving sound and continual raising-of-the-bar. He saved his most glowing love and respect for Paul Weller revealing "he's in it for only pure reasons - the music, the gigs, the clothes - he wants to be the guy. Such an inspiring dude."
