What Noel’s political apathy says to young bands

2013NoelGallagher_TonyBlairPA-1056296241013Noel Gallagher, in an interview with Russell Brand for the New Statesman, says he wouldn’t vote if there was an election tomorrow. “I’m not sure I would vote,” he said. “I didn’t feel last time that there was anything left to vote for. Doesn’t seem that anything has changed, ergo…?”

It’s a similarly disenfranchised view to the one espoused by many of the new bands we gathered together for NME’s recent ‘Young Britannia’ cover.
