Singer Noel Gallagher says the best thing about his solo career since he left Oasis is that he doesn’t have to work with record label people.
The 48-year-old rocker has released his two albums following the break up of mega-band Oasis in 2009 on his own Sour Mash Records label and has earned less cash through sales and streams, despite the success of the LPs around the world.
But after spending years dealing with executives at Sony Music, the major label that bought Alan McGee’s Creation Records which Oasis were signed to, he’s glad to have complete artistic autonomy, reported Female First.
“I enjoy not working with people in record labels who are. It is nice to get away from that mob.
“I enjoy the lack of money that I make. I enjoy the lack of record sales, I also enjoy the lack of recognition and the lack of awards that I receive. Quite frankly, my mantelpiece was chock-a-block with the things. It is nice to take a back seat.”
