Liam Gallagher has revealed he is a big Charlotte Church fan.
The Oasis frontman says he thing the singer has a great voice and he admires her party lifestyle.
He said: "She could be the next Liam. She's got a great voice. She knows how to get hammered and she freaks people out."
However, he wasn't as complimentary about other signers reports The Sun.
Speaking about Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos he said: "He reminds me of f****** Right Said Fred. He's just gone on the Atkins diet and grown his hair! Not my thing at al. I don't like quirky, weird music."
Kate to sing with Babyshambles

A source said: "Kate has got a good voice and is a frustrated rock chick.
"She sang with Pete and Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie at her 31st birthday party earlier this year. But this will be the first time she will have performed in public."

News: Lollapalooza 2005
As reported by Rollingstones.com, Weezer, the Killers, Widespread Panic, the Pixies, Liz Phair and Dashboard Confessional are among the sixty artists who will perform on five stages at the 2005 edition of Lollapalooza. In contrast to the traveling festival launched in 1991 by then-Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, this year's Lollapalooza will be a stationary event, to be held in Chicago's Grant Park July 23rd and 24th. Other performers will include comeback artists like reunited indie rockers Dinosaur Jr., rocker Billy Idol and hip-hoppers Digable Planets, as well as up-and-comers from around the world, like Montreal's Arcade Fire, the U.K.'s Kasabian and Southern California's Louis XIV. Tickets are currently available at lollapalooza.com.

Late Afternoon Update
At this late afternoon I will give you a ftp link with tons of albums. The server has the limited number of users but once you're in the throughput is quite good.

News: Babyshambles, Franz Ferdinand
Babyshambles are to play London's Love Music Hate Racism festival in Trafalgar Square next month.
Pete Doherty's band will join Estelle, MC Lady Sovereign and Terri Walker on the bill, reports Xfm.co.uk.
Doherty said: "I don't think you have to be a particularly developed human being intellectually or spiritually to despise racism.
"It may be easy to be complacent, but we need to encourage people to fight racism whether with words or actions. Count me in."
The event is being organised by the Unite Against Fascism and Love Music Hate Racism organisations to bring attention to their Stop The BNP campaign.
The event will take place on Sunday, May 1 and also includes speeches from campaigners, including Tony Benn and Ken Livingstone.
ALEX KAPRANOS has told NME.COM FRANZ FERDINAND hope to release their new album in the autumn – and their new songs are “less cold” and “darker”.
The band have been in their studio in Scotland working on songs for the follow-up to their self-titled debut for most of this year. However, Alex took time out to speak to NME.COM about the band’s progress so far.
He revealed: “We have started recording. Some of the stuff we started recording we will be using but we want to record a lot more. We try and get as many ideas down in the first place. A song might have 28 parts and you keep three of them. Having that huge choice in the first place and then being ruthless about what you reject is how you make decent music. (read more)
