“What was the gig like?” “I don’t know, everyone was dressed as a teddy bear in the Seventies.”

Rolling Stone: Did you see that [Arcade Fire has] asked people to wear formal wear or costumes at their shows? [Ed. Note: Arcade Fire has clarified that this dress code is “super not mandatory.”]

Noel Gallagher: [Sighs] Well, what’s the point of that? Do you know what the point of that is? That is to take away from the shit disco that’s coming out of the speakers. Because everybody’s dressed as one of the Three Musketeers on acid. “What was the gig like?” “I don’t know, everyone was dressed as a teddy bear in the Seventies.” “Yeah, but what was the gig like?” “Ah, fuck knows, man, I have no idea. I was dressed as a flying saucer.” “Yeah, but what was the gig like?” “Fuck knows. I don’t know. Seen Cheech and Chong, there, though.”
