We celebrated the FAULT Magazine 10 year anniversary in style with the likes of Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens, Rae Morris, Felicity Hayward, GIRLI, Dakota Blue Richards, Jonny Nelson and Sascha & Mimi Bailey at UNIT London gallery last week.

While the BULLDOG Gin sponsored bar served their signature gin & tonics (with a slice of crisp grapefruit on the rim) downstairs, guests enjoyed an exhibition of some of our favourite-ever FAULT shoots with the likes of Kylie Jenner, Usher, Ellie Goulding, Ben Barnes, Big Sean, Nick Jonas and Gary Numan. Well, we hope they enjoyed them, anyway!

Pride of place, of course, was our latest cover with Liam Gallagher. Shot by Jack Alexander, the front cover for FAULT 27: the Best of British Issue was the focal point for our showcase event that was catered exclusively by stupendous fro-yo trailblazers Snog and their brilliant new brand, Beltane & Pop.

The official ‘FAULT Magazine 10 year anniversary afterparty’ took place at Mahiki Mayfair…we think. To be honest, we weren’t quite sure where we were once our private section started overflowing with bottles of vodka and Mahiki’s trademark treasure chests!

Liam Gallagher – Exclusive FAULT Magazine Issue 27 Covershoot and Interview Preview

 

Liam Gallagher

As you were. As you are.

FAULT Magazine is proud to present our Issue 27 cover story with non-other than Liam Gallagher. With a career spanning over 25 years and a myriad of stories to tell, we sat down to discuss the ups and downs of his career and get to know Liam Gallagher as he was and as he is. Enjoy.

 

FAULT: Do you recall the first 24 hours after Noel quit the band? What was going through your mind at that point?

Liam Gallagher: Oh fuck. That very moment I just went– right, there have been certain powers at play. It wasn’t too big an argument; we’ve had worse arguments. What went down was something that was pre-planned.

 

FAULT: What was the lead up to that point that makes you so sure that it was pre-planned?

Liam Gallagher: Lots of things. A lot of sneaky little meetings. People might say that it’s paranoia. But you can never be too paranoid in life. I kind of knew he was going to map it at some point. It was going to happen at V or it was going to happen at Reading. It only got postponed until Paris. I knew he was going to jump ship at some point. And that’s what made me feel that my paranoia was right. Or maybe I’m clairvoyant; I’ve got 6 senses.

 

FAULT: Did you feel Noel’s absence while writing this record?

Liam Gallagher: Yeah – because I don’t want to be solo. I don’t want to do it on my own. I’m not a guitar player or a prolific songwriter. I can write a few songs every now and again but I miss being in a band. I miss my brother the way he was back then. I miss singing those great songs that we all made great.

 

FAULT: Were you disappointed that your former bandmates did not reach out to you in times of crisis? Are you resentful in any way?

Liam Gallagher: My older brother has always been there. I thought I’d at least get a call from Noel, but there was no call. I thought I’d get a call from my other manager, but nothing from them fucking cunts. But then I met Debbie and she’s been there all the way. A lot of my mates are gone; I don’t really have anyone in London and that is fine. The universe is my mate.

 

Liam Gallagher: I’ve been through a lot of shit, but it was shit that I caused. When you cause shit – you man up and fucking deal with it. Sometimes you have to fucking man up to your shit.

 

 

 

FAULT: Did you ever feel that you were done? That you hit your peak in ’96 in Knebworth and then it was all downhill from there? 

Liam Gallagher: I feel like I’ve maintained it without turning into the traps of the business. I’m still outspoken, I’m still wearing my heart on my sleeve and if people like it that’s fine. If you don’t then you don’t. I’m not a ‘yes man’.

 

FAULT: Did you ever see yourself hitting the top once more by yourself?

Liam Gallagher: The night Oasis split I felt absolutely disappointed and then I felt exactly the opposite when my album went number 1. In this day and age, rock’n’roll has got cobwebs on it. I never actually saw myself hitting the top once more. But if you truly believe, things will happen. I’ve been good to rock’n’roll and I reckon rock’n’roll will be good to me. It saved me twice.

 

FAULT: Hollywood is ablaze with accusations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein. Have you seen similar occurrences in the music industry? 

Liam Gallagher: : Not really, but you know it’s there. The shady little fuckers at the top. It’s not even with just men and women, it’s men and men too. All these pop bands – you hear about it with Take That but I’ve never witnessed any of it. Nobody would come near us. We were caught up in our own bubble. We weren’t hanging about with the record company. We’d go to the awards show and they’d be there, but we’d just get off and do our own thing. And I certainly didn’t see any weird shit.

 

FAULT: What changes do you reckon we should make to keep things safe for both men and women alike?

Liam Gallagher: That’s a big tough question. Obviously get rid of all the shit bags. Obviously, if everyone took care of their shit – everything would be cool. We all live together under one sky at the end of the day. Everyone just needs to cool the fuck out.

 

FAULT: Do you think Liam Gallagher has the power to get people to go back to the roots of rock’n’roll?

Liam Gallagher: I’ve got a lot of fans out there and I always have. My oldest kid is 18 and my friends have kids about the same age – so they’re going to bring them to the shows. That’s a good thing. All you can do is make good music and do good gigs. Do good interviews and try to sell it how it is. Stay honest to what you are and don’t get carried away with all the show business shit. That’s all that I can do. I’m definitely not the savior of music, I’m the savior of me.

 

Liam Gallagher:I don’t get involved with the industry and the business side of it. I let my manager do that. That’s the problem with music today – it’s got no fucking soul. I get being business minded, but it can overpower. You forget about the fucking music.”

Alfred Enoch in FAULT Magazine Issue 26

 

We’re delighted to announce that Alfred Enoch appears in an exclusive spread for FAULT Magazine Issue 26 – The Millennial Issue.

Having appeared in the Harry Potter films as a kid, Alfred made waves when he popped up – all grown up – in TV series ‘How To Get Away With Murder’. A runaway success for ABC, the show sees Alfred star opposite Viola Davis. After a wildly dramatic season for his character, we caught up to find out what’s next for the young actor…

Alfred wears looks by Michael Kors, Gieves & Hawkes, Zadig & Voltaire, Songzio & more in our exclusive shoot

Now that your time as Wes Gibbins on ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ has come to an end, are you going to take a break or jump straight into a new project?

I don’t like taking time off. It’s a nice thing if your job is your passion, and you’re fortunate enough to make a living from doing what you love, you just want to keep doing it. I enjoy working so I don’t want to take a vacation. Those naturally come anyway as an actor, it’s just the nature of the job, so I’m just looking to work – I don’t want to rest!

Are you going to experience a fear of missing out now that you’re no longer working on the show?

I mean, It’s sort of inherent in the work of an actor that you’ll get that. I’ll get more fear of missing out if I’m just doing
one thing for ages and then not doing other things. I was talking to someone recently who said that they were surprised that that was it, and they said it’s “only been three years” — three years is quite a long time! For me, I think that more of my fear of missing out comes from thinking about all the other jobs I’m not able to do. It was a terrific, terrific experience and I loved it, but it was good.

I think it was good for the show because it was unexpected, it opens up room for the other characters, and I get to do other things as well. It doesn’t feel like it was too soon, three years is a long time.

You’re currently in South Africa filming Troy: Fall Of A City. How are you liking playing the role of Aeneas?

This time, I know where it goes for my character. I didn’t actually study The Iliad, I studied The Aeneid, which is actually a later Roman text. It’s kind of nice to go into something and think well, at least I know my character survives!

It’s a cracking story you know, and from the perspective of a sort of slightly hyperactive
boy who always wanted to be an actor, this is one of those things you sort of dream of doing, getting to be on horseback, do sword fights, and all that stuff.

As an actor who doesn’t use social media, how do you gauge an audience’s reaction to your work?

That’s something that, for example with ‘How to Get Away with Murder’, people tell me. People are still telling me they’re excited about it, apparently it’s very big in Cape Town where I am now, so I have a lot of conversations where people express their surprise at what happened to my character.

I still have those conversations; just because I’m choosing to have those conversations personally rather than virtually doesn’t mean I’m locked in a hermetic box. There is a life outside of social media, which I’m very happy to embrace.

Tom Grennan storms the pages of FAULT Issue 26

 FAULT are pleased to announce that the man of the moment, Tom Grennan, features inside Issue 26 – The Millennial Issue – with an exclusive shoot and interview.

Tom wears looks by Moschino, Champion and Dickies in our shoot (courtesy of samgreenbergvintage.com)

Nestled on the back streets of a slightly sunny Shoreditch, we’re having breakfast with Tom Grennan. “I haven’t seen my mum in time” the singer tells us over a juice, and it’s no surprise – this past year has been a whirlwind. After lending his distinctive vocals to Chase & Status (and more recently Bugzy Malone) he’s now gearing up to release his debut album [Lightning Matches, available to pre-order now] after a largely sold-out UK tour. Tom’s outstanding vocal ability to stop you dead in your tracks also saw the musician nominated for the prestigious BBC Sound of 2017 at the beginning of the year, the latest benchmark in a career which shows no sign of slowing. Naturally, we had to sit down with the rising star to find out more…

The new EP is out soon, what’s your favourite song from it?

Probably ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’. The EP only has four tracks on it, I love ‘First Day Of The Sun’ as well though, that one’s wicked.

You’re on tour in September?

Yeah I’m buzzing to play KOKO, I’m buzzing to play Birmingham and Manchester too. I’m just buzzing for the whole tour really, it’s going to be sick!

What’s the best bit of advice Chase & Status have given you?

Probably to keep being me and keep believing in what I’m putting out, because if I believe in it then other people hopefully will. Just keep it real really.

What are you getting up to in your spare time… or, is it just music, music, music at the moment?

At the moment everything is about this, the EP really. I play football but at the moment I haven’t got the time. I sometimes get in a couple of runs here and there but apart from that I haven’t got much time on my hands.

Is there anyone else you’d like to collaborate with?

I haven’t really thought about it [pauses], Adele would be cool.
