The new Noel Gallagher video for ‘Black Star Dancing’ is a retro gem
Noel Gallagher has shared a very special music video for the title-track from his upcoming EP Black Star Dancing. The video is a retro gem of a clip and even features the utterly disgraceful comedian from yesteryear, the late Bernard Manning.
The video sees Noel and band playing a very special performance of the disco-inspired song for what looks like an old working men’s club. With vintage footage from ITV’s The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club, which was hosted by Manning during the late 70s.
About the ‘Black Star Dancing’ single, Noel suggested it gathered inspiration from a huge hosty of influences: “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS!”
“I might have been watching too much Top Of The Pops recently … anyway, it’s ‘dope’ … not my words, but the words of Nile Rodgers who literally danced in the studio when he heard it!”
