Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell is so determined to make sure his band's second album is as good as possible, he's been asking Noel Gallagher for tips.

Borrell wants to top Razorlight debut UP ALL NIGHT and sought advice from songwriter Gallagher, whose sophomore album with Oasis, ( WHAT'S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY, is generally regarded as the group's best.

So, when Gallagher recently attended a Razorlight gig at London's Alexandra Palace, Borrell seized his chance.

He says, "Noel came down on the second night, he watched from the side of the stage and was very complimentary. We were talking about second albums and it kind of reinforced what I thought.

"At the moment I can't tell whether I've got the album written or not. I've been writing since the last record came out so it may all be there. I'm going to get out and play some gigs, come back and have a look."
