Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
“Great man, he is even better with my backing dancing.”

Noel Gallagher's High Birds on Crack (Album)
In October 2011, Noel and the hippies released their first album Noel was unable to come up with a title, but it was rumored that several potential titles included 'God Goes Solo' and even 'Better Than Beady Eye'. The Album sent Noel's brother Liam Gallagher into an ongoing series of mental breakdowns, because he realized that his band Beady Eye were "Just plain shit" compared to Noels "Magical Fucking Rainbow Trolls".
High Birds On Crack was recorded in Las Angele's after Noel's producer was unable to locate a Starbucks store within 100 meters of his London studio. Noel was unhappy that he had to leave England to record the album, and tried bribing his producer with several private islands such as Australia. When recording, Noel told his producer that he wanted his next album to contain new instruments, and as a result Noel began learning how to play the banjo. With much help from Adele's bold trombone riffs and Russel Brand's arm farts, High Birds On Crack began taking on a unique sound.
The first single from the album The Death Of Noely G was written by Noel's daughter Anais, after she found Noel lying on the floor of his kitchen motionless. She feared he was dead and began writing the song. Shortly after Noel regained consciousness and admitted that he had passed out from overdose of Bread. Tim Burton was summoned to produce the drug induced film clip for the single which featured a lost blond girl getting pissed off in a roadside restaurant. The idea for the video clip came to Tim when he left his daughter stranded in a McDonald's store in Florida. He thought it would be interesting to re-enact the scenario through a music video.

In late 2011 Noel left the drug lair to make more money to spend at the drug lair. The band is well known for the unusual characteristics of the members when touring. Russell Brand was often criticised for his sexual backing dancing and loud, abrupt arm farts. In 2012 the group toured in the Big Day Out music festival in Australia. During the tour Noel became friends with Australian prime minister Julia Gillard, after he recovered her stolen shoe from a native aboriginal. The relationship led to Julia acting in the release of Noels single Dream On. She played a red headed boxer that was angry with laws on hair colour.
Noel also has improved his live performances by introducing tap-dancing to his live performances, which he says has pulled in many fans from around the world.
In the lead up to the release of Noels single AKA What A Wife Chris Martin asked if he could play his old broken and vandalized piano live with Noel. The two then organized an unannounced performance of the song live at the 2012 Brit Awards, with Noel playing the banjo and Adele on Trombone. The performance was criticised by critics, and Adele's mother was unhappy with the sound and quality of her trombone playing. Noel and Chris have said they would like to continue collaborations and in future would like to see Rihanna on the drums.
Noel announced that he would be working on a new album with an Irish Leprechaun Rock band called Amorphus Hippopotamus, but shortly discontinued work on the album due to realising that that hippos could not mix rock music. He is now considering putting Russell Brand on lead vocals.
