Apparently as bored with Oasis as everyone else is these days, Noel Gallagher has ripped off yet another Beatles idea by setting up his own record label Sour Mash. His first signings Proud Mary are, perhaps not surprisingly, remarkably what like Gallagher's band used to be: unreconstructed pub rockers with a talent for recycling classic riffs. It's easy to sneer at this kind of trad-rock, but in fairness the band have a few decent tunes and a beefy energy that carries them through the album's dodgier moments. Throwing in a Rolling Stones cover, however, only serves to underline the whole exercise's lack of ambition.
