Oasis was to me and my friends what the Beatles were to our parents. They'll always be one of the foundations of my tastes.
Can you imagine having that many people belt your song back at you? Has to be awesome.
Saw them many times, and they were often phenomenal. Too bad Liam is such a jackhole -- he pretty much destroyed two of the concerts I attended with his prissy petulance.
Awesome, nobody does 'Bands' like the British.
and Zak Starkey on drums....
I don't care what anyone says, Oasis was awesome.
Go Let It Out; Shakermaker; Gas Panic; Supersonic...
they have some great songs in their body of work, but that bratty Liam attitude grew real old real fast.
I can't help it...I like 'em. I kinda missed 'em during their prime; I think I was off touring the galaxy that decade. Killer song writing.
Thanks for posting this. It got me back into listening to Oasis a bit and listening to interviews with Noel Gallagher.
I think Noel is a brilliant songwriter and was prolific during that relatively short period of time. It's difficult for me to understand how anyone could think otherwise about Noel. The movie Oasis: Supersonic is fantastic, and it's a great window into their meteoric rise, their deep dysfunction, their rock n' roll lifestyle, and, in my opinion, how Noel was really the driving force and genius behind the whole thing. That movie is now available on Netflix.
And here's a fantastic interview I watched with Noel this morning. It's from 2006. It's the first 16 minutes of this video:
After college I spent 95-96 backpacking around the U.K. and Europe with a buddy, and it was the best year of my life. Music was a big part of that, and Oasis was the center of the musical universe at that time and place (along with Blur). Say what you will about them (and if you weren't young and in the UK or Europe at that time I don't think you can truly understand the phenomenon they were). But for me, they helped to define that time of my life. I don't listen to them a lot now, but when I do, I'm 23 again with the world at my feet.
I know, time traveling through music, it's nothing short of magic.
I really enjoyed the interview. Thanks for posting, professor.
Always liked that one... thanks for posting.
I don't care much for them, but was impressed by this:
