That Noel Gallagher track behind Ian Brown’s “Keep What Ya Got”

Thanks to my astute listeners out there, now we know that not only does Noel Gallagher play lead guitar on the Ian Brown song “Keep What Ya Got” (which I love), but also that it is a re-working of a song that Noel wrote for the X-Files movie called “Teotihuacan.”

Here’s the atmospheric original:

Teotihuacan – Noel Gallagher

I just could not just leave Britney’s bald dome staring out at all you Friday night visitors, hence the hasty post on my way out the door. Arrivederci!


  • The X-Files is my other obsession, after a couple of American singer-songwriters we might have spoken about in the past. When that Noel Gallagher track came up as the screen faded to black… it was delicious. The movie’s soundtrack also features the single version of Foo Fighters’ “Walking After You”, which kicks the arse out of the original. Snagging this MP3 as my The X Files: The Album is at my mammy’s ;)

  • Also, I guess I’ll have to download that Ian Brown track now… (I glossed over that post as I find him an unbearable wanker. And yet adore Noel Gallagher. Go figure.)

  • Wasn’t that X-Files movie soundtrack reallyu good? I used to have it, don’t anymore. But I remember listening to it in my car alot.

    I also particularly loved the Barenaked Ladies lyric in that one radio song they had, where he sings, “Watching X-Files with no lights on/something something something/I hope the Smoking Man’s in this one.” Man, that was my Sunday (right?) nights…

  • Thank you! Sounds great – think I recall that sampling pre-Keep What Ya Got when Browny’s played it live..

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
