I can’t believe the movie Baby Driver is literally based off this early 2000s music video that Edgar directed, which featured Noel, Julian, and Nick Frost. That’s why they played a clip of it in Baby Driver.

Interviewer: Do you think that having the Verve around is good for you?  They’re one of the few bands capable of kicking you up the arse.

Liam: We can get more inspiration off the likes of the Verve than off of Prodigy or anyone else.

Noel: It’s about time that band done sommat, because Richard is a genius, right.  And the rest of them–and Nick is, Nick McCabe, he’s one of the best guitar players I’ve ever seen.  And they’re a great band, and even when we supported them years and years and years ago, they were a great band then, and circumstances just worked against them.  And I was the happiest man in the world when that band went to number one with their album.

Liam: It means more to us than it probably does to them.

Int: It’s strange because as Verve fans, people who follow the Verve, everyone feels really vindicated by the fact that they’ve gone on to be successful.  Everyone who liked the Verve, back then.

Noel: Who feels vindicated?  All the people that were slagging them off three years ago?

Int:  No, no–

Noel: We were the only people who were saying about that band–I don’t write songs about many people, I’ve written songs about him [Liam], I’ve written songs about me mam, I’ve written songs about Richard Ashcroft.  That man is a genius, right.  And I’ll tell you what, man.  He ain’t doing it for him.  He’s doing it for me, because that geezer–

Int: How do you mean, for you?

Noel: Because he has got to be a better songwriter than me, right, and then in return I have got to write better songs than him.  And that’s what it’s about.  And people are going to build up this thing about The Verve vs. Oasis, but we go back so far, from Manchester, Wigan, that they will never be able to touch the bond and the friendship that we have with that band.

- Liam and Noel reveal themselves to be huge Verve fanboys in their Evening Session interview, 23-10-97. People always talk about Oasis vs. Blur, but in Noel and Liam’s minds it was clearly The Verve that they had to compete with.

The music video that was the precursor to Baby Driver. Featuring Nick Frost and Noel Fielding no less!

Watch Trailer for Mr. Roosevelt, Written and Directed by and Starring Noël Wells

As is sometimes the case with people who have a very short run at Saturday  Night Live, they flourish in their career post-SNL. 

Jenny Slate is a great example of that and Noël Wells seems to be walking a similar path.

After a memorable turn on Master of None, Wells has made a debut as a writer/director/star with her film, Mr. Roosevelt. This film puts Wells in the spotlight in the very uncomfortable situation of staying with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend.

See for yourself in the trailer, then look out for Mr. Roosevelt in theaters later this month on Friday, October 27th.

Something I think needs to be said around Christmas

Is your Santa white? Great!

Is your Santa black? Awesome!

Is your Santa rotund? Super!

Is your Santa slender? Cool!

Does your Santa wear red? Nice!

Does your Santa wear green? Brilliant!

Do you call him Santa? Sweet!

Do you call him Father Christmas? Fantastic!

Your Santa can be whatever you want him to be. Don’t dump on people because they have a different view to you.
