Whether you are a big fan of SURFER BLOOD or not but this one deserves your attention. Guitarist Thomas Fekete of the American noise rockers has set-up a special donation page to raise money for his cancer treatment. He tells that he has been diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer, a sarcoma, a few months ago. He recently was told by his doctors that the only treatment that would work would come in form of an advanced, alternative type that costs thousands of dollars.

Fekete aims to fund $76.000 and writes: ‘Any bit of help would be massive for me, as I’m no longer able to tour and make a living, and my wonderful wife/best friend whom I just married in November will now be leaving work to help me throughout my treatment.’ You can go to his GoFundMe page right here and support him with a donation.

The new SURFER BLOOD album 1000 Palms arrives on May 11. Stream I Can’t Explain right here.

Did the Gallagher brothers bury the hatchet and plan Oasis reunion?

Well, you have to be careful with a news source like ‘The Mirror’ but according to the British newspaper Liam and Gallagher have ended their feud and came to a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ which could ultimately result in an OASIS reunion. The ‘well-placed source’ of ‘The Mirror’ is quoted with the words: ‘It’s early days in terms of the details, but Noel and Liam are back on good terms and ready to give things another go. Nothing is signed but it’s what you might call a gentlemen’s agreement between them.’ The source furthermore continues: ‘Ultimately they’re family and whatever has gone on before can be sorted out – they’re very close beneath all the bluster.’

As you can see, this is highly speculative and an end of the Gallagher feud doesn’t automatically call for a potential OASIS reunion. Noel is currently quite successfully touring the world with his second – and pretty good – solo album Chasing Yesterday and has stated multiple times ahead of its release that he has no interest in a comeback of his old band. At least not for now. We’ll have to wait and see if those rumours turn out to be true.
