Svengali is a new Internet comedy show, written by Dean Cavanagh and directed by Phillip John, that centres around Dixie (Jonathan Owen) and his girlfriend Michelle (Sally Phillips) in London with the dream to break the band he is managing. It’s filmed on location in London taking advantage of such great landmarks as the Foundry, EC2 and Boogaloo N6 as set back drops.
Jonny Owen, Dean Cavanagh and Phil John were in different bands as young men. They signed deals with record companies, put out singles and waited for the world to recognise them as the greatest band since the Beatles, the saviours of Rock and Roll. Sadly (for boys) this never happened but they had a plan.. If the real world didn’t think they had the greatest bands in the world then they’d invent a world that did….and that’s exactly what they’ve done with Svengali.
Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has revealed he expects former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher to join the band for a series of cameo appearances during their upcoming UK tour. The dates would be the first public appearances by Noel since he walked out on Oasis in August after a dressing room bust-up with brother Liam Gallagher.
Speaking in yesterday’s edition of the News Of The World, Meighan said: “We’ve got our arena tour in November. Noel will be calling us up nearer the time for sure saying, ‘Lads, I’m going to come perform with you on tour’. He’s a performing machine, and loves playing live so he jumps at the opportunity whenever he can join us.”
