Oasis - The Importance Of Being Idle Video
The video for 'The Importance of Being Idle' features Welsh stage genius, Rhys Ifans, fresh from an award winning performance as Peter Cook in 'Not Only, But Also', the film sees Ifans as a Billy Liar character in a 60's London setting reminiscent of such classics of British cinema as 'Up The Junction' and 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'. Ifans plays a funeral director high kicking his way through a New Orleans style funeral procession as bemused onlookers watch the procession and demonstrates an unnerving talent for dance routines.
‘The Importance of Being Idle’ is the second single from their No.1 album ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’. The single is the follow-up to the bands recent No.1 single ‘Lyla’. Written and sung by Noel Gallagher, the single is released on Big Brother Recordings on CD, DVD and 7”. Across the formats the single will feature two brand new tracks – a Liam song, ‘Pass Me Down The Wine’ (produced and mixed by Dave Sardy) and the Gem penned, ‘The Quiet Ones’ (produced and mixed by the band). The DVD single will feature the video, the ‘making of’ documentary, as well as album and demo versions of the single.
