Oasis Update: Mani's Joining Noel Live & Liam is Misunderstood

Two bits of news from NME:

First up is that Noel Gallagher is playing the a show for the Teenage Cancer Trust later this month and he'll be joined by none other then Mani (from Primal Scream and Stone Roses fame.

Secondly, Liam snubbed Noel when he accepted an award for Best Brit Album and then threw the award in the crowd.  Apparently, he was just misunderstood!  He only thanked the band because all the news circulates around Liam and Noel and he "thought it was only right to mention to other lads who played on the album and the best fans in the world".  And when he tossed his award into the crowd, "I thought it was a nice gesture to give this to the fans.  Obviously it was misinterpreted as per usual."
