Noel Gallagher is now a massive fan of Arctic Monkeys’ lead singer and songwriter Alex Turner’s smart wordplay. But he tells The Sun he doesn’t know how well they will go down in non English-speaking parts of the world. “They are quite stunning lyrics, which is all right if you understand them,” the Oasis star said. “But if you’re South American and can’t speak English, I don’t know. The sound is quite rock ‘n’ roll, it’s kind of funky in a way. Whether it will translate, I don’t know. But I’m sure the Arctic Monkeys couldn’t really give a monkey’s whether it translates to people in China or not. They’re just doing their own thing.” The full story at thesun.co.uk has since been removed.
