APB: Liam Gallagher's Voice

Sherman Oaks, California

The Los Angeles Police Department this evening issued an all points bulletin for Liam Gallagher's voice.

"Liam Gallagher's tenor has been a well-known member of this community since 1991," said LAPD police chief William Bratton, referring to the front man of the British band Oasis. "Unfortunately, police sources, including about 10,000 people who spent this evening at Staples Center, have reported it missing."

"Maybe it's dazed and wandering the area," Bratton opined, noting that the voice, while clearly missing from "Rock'n'Roll Star" and "Lyla," was sighted in "Songbird" and "Slide Away."

"The bottom line is that Noel sang the pants off Liam tonight," Bratton said, "and that means something's missing."

"By the way," he added, "'Morning Glory' still has one chunky riff, and 'The Masterplan' can make even a tough cop cry. Too bad they didn't play 'Acquiesce.'"

Oasis is not a nostalgia act. It's of the moment, two guys passing 40 and still playing in a band for lack of any other acceptable option. The reason we all stay at the job.

Concerts as middle-aged sex. You know what will happen. It will usually be good. The surprises are fewer each year. It's cozy. You come back later.

And, given Liam's ability to piss away money, the two will be on the road longer than Daltry and Townsend.

rock's planned obsolesence is starting to pose a problem for me. as communicated ad nauseam i decided to stop caring about the new stuff, and the old stuff is wearing out. i'm realizing my emotional underpinnings are based on fairly bad music and it's too late to change. bloody hell.

The repetitive nature of Anglo-American rock'n'roll is what drives people to take up Ghanian folk songs and Malay-Arabic mosque music.
