Liam Gallagher: "Oasis is no longer"

Rolling Stone reports on the official demise of Britpop icons Oasis. While reports in August were made of an apparently physical altercation between the Liam and Noel Gallagher backstage after a show, it wasn’t until Liam said in an interview with Times U.K. that, “Oasis is no longer. I think we all know that. So that’s done,” Liam said. “Without a doubt. And it’s a shame but that’s life. We had a good run at it.” [Previous 20 Watts Coverage: The 20.1: An Essential Guide to Britpop]

Lady Gaga has released cover art and more details about her upcoming album The Fame Monster.  This new release will compile her debut album and eight unreleased tracks. “Originally [my label] only wanted me to put out three songs and now it’s much more than that. It’s a new album’s worth of material,” said the singer-songwriter. [Previous 20 Watts Coverage: Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” Video]

Rolling Stone speculates on the possible outcome of Phish’s “musical costuming” for this upcoming Halloween, when they’ll be playing another artist’s album in its entirety. Many who’ve been following the campaign on the group’s Festival 8 page suspect that they might try their hand at Bruce Springsteen’s classic Born to Run. We think it’s plausible, seeing as Phish headlined this year’s Bonnaroo with the Boss, performing a few of his originals onstage. [Previous 20 Watts Coverage: The Boss Turns 60]

Moby will reportedly be donating all of the proceeds from three of his October tour dates to the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence. Perhaps he still feels guilty from his oh-so-public feud with the docile Eminem. Regardless, the funds will definitely be put to good use, seeing as Governor Schwarzenegger has voted to eliminate state funding of domestic abuse shelters as a stipulation of a budget cut introduced this July.

Stereogum shows us how to best spend $125 at New York’s recent indie festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties. While there are plenty of awesome (and thrillingly unethical) ways to blow away your hard-earned cash at the Festival (vegan food is far from cheap these days), the Gum coaxed a few bands to take their cash and have a good time with it. Watch Animal Collective, No Age, Bradford Cox and Boredoms‘ Boadrum 9 drummers Zach Hill, Hisham Bharoocha, Aaron Moore, and Jeremy Hymen drop some coin at ATP. Hilarity ensues.
