Designers at Liam Gallagher’s fashion firm have been commissioned to recreate the ultimate mod accessory for The Who’s Quadrophenia album re-release next month. Pretty Green bosses will make 100 of the iconic parka coats, featured on the cover of the album, available at the company’s Carnaby Street store in London.

Meanwhile, brother Noel says he couldn’t write an album like Definitely Maybe again as he can no longer relate to the subjects. He said: ‘You just don’t feel supersonic at 7.10am changing nappies.’

Guns ‘n’ Roses have entered into a war of words with the organiser of the recent Rock in Rio festival after he publicly blasted the rockers for their punctuality. Organiser Roberto Medina said their 2.40am appearance at his festival was unacceptable and shows a ‘lack of commitment’ to fans.

Manchester band The Stone Roses are to reform 15 years since they split up. The band say they will perform at least two concerts next summer.

Despite selling 70 million records around the world, four members of UB40 have been declared bankrupt. At least their name will come in useful at the Jobcentre.

Alex Turner has described himself as a ‘romantic fool’ after being asked about the increase in ballads appearing on the Arctic Monkeys’ latest album. That said, if you’re a Sheffield bloke, being romantic just means remembering your girlfriend’s name.

Erasure, The Feeling and The Overtones are the latest acts to be added to the line-up for Wave 105 Live. It’s going to be a real ‘across the board’ selection of artists and bands appearing on Sunday, November 20.

The addition of Erasure has certainly created a lot of interest. Vince Clarke and Andy Bell have been around as a duo for over 25 years and have had 17 top 10 hits. They are playing Wave 105 Live hot on the heels of their World Tour to promote their latest studio album, Tomorrow’s World.

The Feeling are Ivor Novello Award winners and also have a new album out, and The Overtones are the guys that were spotted singing in Oxford Street before being snapped up in a multi million pound deal!

Catch Steve Power at Breakfast, Monday to Friday, 5.30-9am, on Wave 105.
