Noel Gallagher plays MySpace Japan show
By SIMON BARTZ
Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer of Oasis played a semi-acoustic show at Ebisu Liquid Room Wednesday night as part of the launch of MySpace Japan, a Japanese-language version of the popular social-networking Web site. The two guitarists ran through Oasis classics including "Talk Tonight" and "Wonderwall" (both on the recent "Stop the Clocks" CD/DVD package). There was also a rare performance of "Whatever," and a cover of The Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever" in a set that lasted an hour. A 600-strong crowd mainly made up of businessmen in gray suits and their hangers-on shouted requests and sang along to the penultimate tune, "Don't Look Back in Anger," before Gallagher ended the chilled-out set with "Married With Children."
